Course description:

This webinar will educate the practitioner to become a better diagnostician and provide more effective treatments with Chinese herbal medicine in the treatment of endometriosis. While it is important to understand the Western, biomedical disease name endometriosis – for various reasons including communicating with other medical professionals – it is imperative that the Chinese Medicine practitioner not treat the Western medical diagnosis. As such, this webinar includes both Western and Eastern education. Case studies are presented to assure the practitioner reviews the Chinese Medicine diagnosis and thought process in determining the patterns involved, and how to treat those patterns.
Dr. White will teach you all of the latest biomedical research on this disease including:
 -Clinical Manifestations
 -Case studies from her practice
Michael will teach many of the common Chinese medical disease and pattern presentations associated with endometriosis including:
-Painful Menstruation
-Heavy Menstruation
-Menstrual Movement diseases
-Common pairing and triplet presentations
-Case studies of endo from his practice

Additional case study included:

In the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine, diagnosticians rule. However, too often we see practitioners struggle with pattern diagnosis, and it is nearly impossible to prescribe herbs without the correct pattern. Yet this is done all the time. This webinar is the first of many to come that will correct this problem through thorough analysis using case studies.

Take a deep dive into the clinical thinking needed to complete a proper intake and make an accurate Chinese Medicine diagnosis in treating Endometriosis.  case studies help instill the ability to think like a Chinese Medicine doctor and make a proper Chinese Medicine diagnosis.  Diagnosis is a process of deductive reasoning utilizing sequential steps to arrive at a rational conclusion (the diagnosis) and therefore, treatment strategy. When done correctly, the clinical picture is clear and the diagnosis is much easier and accurate. When the diagnosis is accurate, prescribing Chinese Herbal medicine is much more effective.
