Insight and Skill in the
Treatment of Modern Diseases with Chinese Herbal Medicine
Diabetes Type II
Obesity and Heart Disease
The increase of heart disease in America has touched all of us, through our patients, our families and our own lives. As Chinese medical practitioners, we have the means to powerfully influence our patients' health when they are suffering from modern metabolic illnesses. Using Western diagnostic information as the guide to determine treament methods will result in very poor results. The key to being highly effective is in accurate diagnosis combined with knowledge of the correct Chinese herbs and formulas. Often we are afraid to use some of the most effective herbs for these conditions such as Da Huang (rhurbarb) or Fu Zi (aconite) because we do not fully understand the diagnostic keys that enable us to use these safely.
In this two day course, we will learn both the patho-physiology and the diagnostic keys to working with these ever more common illnesses. Building upon this foundation, we wil then look at the most effective treatment methods based on the instructor's clinical experience. Case studies will be presented for regulating blood pressure and blood lipids, lowering blood insulin levels and treating obesity.
