Join Michelle Buchanan, owner of one of the largest acupuncture clinics in the Midwest who has 12 years of acupuncture clinical experience, as she shares how to integrate Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) diagnosing techniques with modern day laboratory testing. This blending allows holistic practitioners new technologies to identify the root causes of chronic health issues, monitor the effectiveness of treatments, and look for red flags from standard tests run with wellness physicals. TCM has always embraced new technologies and integrating laboratory style testing will equip acupuncturists with knowledge and treatment strategies for today's holistic healthcare.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Understand common blood tests, stool tests and saliva testing
  • Learn how to use laboratory testing to monitor success of TCM treatments
  • Know when to refer to medical doctors and when to treat using with TCM
  • Learn which functional medicine tests clients can order on their own and which require MD approval
