One of the most valuable tools a practitioner needs in order to properly diagnose and formulate TCM treatments for gynecology related disorders is an adequate understanding of the biomedical pathology behind disorders such as amenorrhea and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

Patients today approach the TCM practitioner with western diagnostic tests, pharmaceutical medication lists, surgery records, and laboratory results. By understanding the western medicine view and treatment of these diseases, practitioners can ask more pertinent questions and take thorough medical histories, and in turn, are able to better translate patients’ conditions into appropriate TCM diagnoses and treatment options.

Dr. Kathleen Albertson, expert practitioner of women’s health issues and author of “Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women’s Health,” brings insight in this webinar on how to more effectively identify, diagnose, and treat the patterns associated with amenorrhea and PCOS.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Distinguish how amenorrhea and PCOS are addressed from a western and TCM perspective
  • Understand TCM pathology & pattern differentiations for amenorrhea and PCOS
  • Learn herbal formulas and acupuncture point protocols for the treatment of amenorrhea and PCOS
  • Become familiar with pertinent TCM research studies on amenorrhea and PCOS
