One of the most valuable tools a practitioner needs in order to properly diagnose and formulate TCM treatments for gynecology related conditions is an adequate understanding of the biomedical pathology behind disorders such as irregular menstruation, PMS, endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and menopausal disorders.

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 course on the TCM perspective of menstruation, amenorrhea, polycystic ovary syndrome (POS), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, and more. Each condition covered will include herbal formulas, useful single herbs, and acupuncture protocols with a rationale as to why these formulas or acupuncture points are selected for the condition. Relevant TCM research will be reviewed.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Distinguish how gynecology problems are addressed from a western and TCM perspective.
  • Understand TCM pathology & pattern differentiations for each disorder.
  • Know the treatment plans, including herbal formulas and acupuncture points, for each pattern (excess and deficiency).
  • Be aware of and familiar with pertinent TCM research studies for these disorders.
