In Chinese gynecology, the menstrual cycle is traditionally divided into two sections, the Yin-dominant phase and the Yang-dominant phase. These roughly correspond to the biomedical follicular phase and luteal phase. But there are further subdivisions of the cycle which Chinese medicine physicians can employ to better and more accurately target specific problems within certain times of the cycle. These include:
- Post ovulation
- Pre-menstrual period
- Post-menstrual period
This webinar begins with an overview of menstrual physiology from a broad perspective and zooms in to the key physiological changes which occur at certain points in the cycle and why certain pathomechanisms, diseases, and patterns are more likely at certain times than others. This webinar has the goal of helping gynecology specialists as well as general practitioners better treat their female patients with more targeted, judicious, and therefore effective treatment strategies. Discussion includes pattern discrimination, Chinese disease categories, and some mention of herbal formulas. Webinar also contains a case study.
This webinar is appropriate for Acupuncturists and Herbalists alike as the main focus is on diagnosis.
