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.
A participant will be able to:
- Understand how endocrine drugs and herbs interact
- Identify the most common endocrine drugs with potential for drug-herb interactions
- Explore how major endocrine drugs act on the body
- Protect oneself from potential medico-legal issues arising from interactions
