Who is Richard Lee, the founder of CHI Institute?

In this time of hidden agendas politicians are betraying their voting bases and news sources are strongly coloring and censoring the news to satisfy the edicts of their owners. So, you may have wondered who is this Richard Lee who owns CHI Institute, has designed most of the products we offer, and who is responsible for this newsletter?

CHI Institute has undergone many changes over the decades…

30 years ago, we started the China Healthways Newsletter to report traditional self-care methods. 30 years later, most of these methods have been repressed and all but forgotten by the young people of China. These methods have been displaced by the western medical paradigm. They are now mostly dependent on western-trained doctors and pharmaceuticals. Over the years, the CHI Newsletter has drifted with a variety of editors, and now have migrated to the e-mail world.

ThroughRichard Lee all of this, I, Richard Lee, have consistently been the owner of CHI Institute and have overseen the CHI Newsletter. In this time of questionable news, it is important for you to know who is behind CHI Institute.

So, who am I? I am a different person than I was 30 years ago. This is true of all of us, including those of you who weren’t even born back then. I am still passionate about each individual taking responsibility for their own health and quality of life. Also, I still get angry when advertising campaigns and government regulations push us away from proven life enhancing methods and remedies like Vitamin C and D, fresh produce, and a host of other options that used to be common sense among mothers and grandmothers.

As a child, I attended church every Sunday until I was 10 years old. Then, my mother announced that God was everywhere and not just in church. That made a lot of sense to me at the time. I then drifted toward the democratic values of protecting the freedom of individuals. I also drifted toward materialist perspectives which lumped God with Santa Claus as old wife’s tales. I got my degree in engineering, a nice solid discipline grounded in materialist science. I worked in the idealistic pursuit of energy conservation up until I ran into the Infratonic technology, which, as you know, simulates the energy emissions from the hands of natural healers.

Alternative Science
This set me on a pathway of exploration of alternative science.

If human vitality is real, what else is real? I was also faced with scientific skeptics who would argue with me, criticize me, and attempt to humiliate me for my “unscientific” beliefs. Experiencing all these “debunkers” firsthand with their largely false, emotional, and irrational claims and their complete unwillingness to consider the basic paranormal scientific research coming out of laboratories was confusing to me.

I had personally seen many actual humans achieving paranormal results that seemed to defy mainstream physics. these results have been well documented in both the US and abroad. Why were the debunkers so blindly unwilling to even consider scientific studies that so clearly contradicted their arguments?

I gradually accepted that the attacks from debunking experts were not about me but were something much larger. The whole COVID thing reveals that the experts, supported by the media, were actively repressing valuable self-care options like Vitamin D, Zinc, and HCQ in favor of stories generated by multinational corporations promoting helplessness and dependence on our severely flawed and bloated medical system.

Control Your Own Mind

Meanwhile, I have learned through trust, faith and direct experience, that some sort of spirit or super-human consciousness is acting to guide each our lives and that the same experts and media that debunked my China Healthways Newsletter 30 years ago have been actively undermining our faith in a higher world in favor of a dead materialist world where we are just biochemical factories and seem to have no choice but to dependent on big government and corporations.

I am forever amazed that my little company, CHI Institute, persists after 30 years. Many times, it has faced hopeless odds and has been saved by random circumstances, or perhaps divine intervention. Over the past 5 years, since moving the company to Reno, Nevada in three U-Haul trucks, I have grown confidence and resilience. This year, for the first time in 30 years, I have stepped forward to “be the boss”. Before, I had always had a manager whom I could hide behind who would make the difficult and important decision for me.

I also have a new sense of creative guidance behind CHI Institute and me. It is as if there are needed technologies bursting into my engineering mind begging to be built. Many of these inventions have not worked. Those that do work often seem to defy engineering principles. This has posed challenges from engineers in manufacturing facilities who have chosen to replace some of my design features with their “tried-and-true” engineering principles. This has led to prolonged development times and a search for factories with engineers willing to “push the envelope” of existing technology.

I am now sure that you, I , and everyone here at CHI Institute are all here for a purpose. Yes, we have come together to Enhance Your Human Experience, but more importantly, to foster inspiration and wisom in those who choose to study our website and, for some, to ponder why our products really work.

We are all enjoying the ride. We hope you join us on this journey of life enhancement and inspiration!


A systems engineer by training, he moved early in his career from efficient use of fossil fuel energy to efficient use of human energy. Human consciousness is severely crippled in most all of us compared to the full potentials of consciousness so Richard has made studying and optimizing human consciousness into a 30 year career choice.

  1. Very interesting article – thank you for sharing – you and your life. I have used your products for many years – both on me and my clients and friends. Quite the journey. So good to keep the company going forward. I share your information with many.

  2. If HQL and zinc are really so effective why are people with access to HQL and the knowledge that is “effective” still dying in great numbers?

    DJT, when he came down with the corona virus, was not treated with HQL, though at some point in 2020 he had been taking it as a preventative. He was treated with exotic immuno stimulants.

    And yes, I’ve looked at the French study reporting positive results from using HQL in more than 3000 formally diagnosed cases of CV19, But people are still dying in France from CV19 despite the fact that the use of HQL is reasonably widely known in France.

    So there has to be some factor we don’t understand about first CV19 and second about under what circumstances HQL may be effective treatment.

  3. thank you richard for keeping on the path. i went with you to china in 1996 and it was one of the best times of my life. i still use the infratonic devices and even hooked one up to a subwoofer to play in my office. every day i use qigong chiropractic and acupuncture along with homeopathy and nutrition. thank you for being you. i read your big book several years ago with your life story and was amazed.
    sincerely your friend on the path. perry

  4. Hi Richard,
    I started with your old chi machine at least 20 years ago.

    It is wonderful. Thank you for it.

    I was interested in your comments and government. I think you would like to
    read some of the interviews of doctors on “”

    They also have many interesting articles on government and God.
    I like the recent one on “pandemic fatigue.”

    Thank you for your work. I was wondering were you in on the move to Reno?
    Mary Kane

  5. Thank you, Richard! I’ve been utilizing the original Chi machine and the hand-held version for more than 20 years in my clinic. I’m amazed every day by their effectiveness both for myself and my patients. I look forward to your new devices and ideas. Thank you, thank you.
