Tutored his son in traditional eastern medicine and healings, learnt from his father. He also taught them Kung Fu between seeing patients. The tradition has been passed down through the generations.
Professor Yoland Lim's father, the acclaimed physician Dr Chey Hiong Lim, migrated from the Swatou Province, China, to Singapore where he founded the Free Clinic in the Eastern jungle of Singapore, Ponggol, and was revered as "The Divine Healer".
Dr Chey Hiong Lim taught Professor Yoland Lim since childhood to gather herbs in the Singapore Eastern jungle of Ponggol (now a housing estate), to create medicines and learn the art of healing of the Fong Yang System. Part of his eastern medical philosophy is the combination of Fong Yang Shi Luo Dou and Phytomolecular (Herbal) Medicines.

As a boy Professor Yoland Lim would wake up early to practise Meditation, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Wei Kung, Fong Shui, Medicine and Buddhist philosophy before following his father to see patients.
On sunrise after breakfast he would go with his father to look for herbs, sometimes taking patients along to help them understand and educate them about Fong Yang therapy. During the search for herbs he also learned the principles of the famous Fong Yang Healers. On returning he would prepare herbs and medical mixtures, part of this eastern medical philosophy is the famous Shi Luo Dou system of healing.
At the time of 350BC China was in a state of civil war, out of this turmoil there emerged three outstanding philosophers. One of which being Meak Tze who along with the development of considerable medical knowledge at the time also developed the skills associated with Kung Fu. Meak Tze’s disciples practiced wisdom and humanitarianism along with Kung Fu and the healing of the sick. They travelled to all parts of China and selectively passed on their healing art and medical knowledge to a chosen few. From there onwards there the Fong Yang philosophy was born where their primary purpose was to help the poor and those persecuted, correct their wrongs, heal the sick and drive out the evil spirits.
