Endocrine Drugs and Chinese Medicine

This seminar explores drugs used tot treat several common conditions in the population and in acupuncturist offices. These include thyroid conditions, diabetes (both type I and II), as well as auto-immune and inflammatory conditions. In addition to drugs to treat these conditions, we will also be exploring drugs used to treat the pituitary and inhibitors of adrenocorticoids. After a review of the hypothalamus and pituitary and their hormones, each of the endocrine organs and their hormones will look at for practical implications in modern medicine. Herb-drug and acupuncture-drug interactions will be explored for each type of drug. If you treat any of these conditions, and/or tumors and cancers affecting the thyroid, pituitary, or adrenals, this is a must attend seminar.

This course will be presented on Saturday, February 12, 2022, from 1-3pm via live webinar.
