Treating Alzheimer’s and other Dementias with Chinese Medicine
5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, considered the the 6th most common cause of death in the United States, but according to the National Institute of Health, it should be ranked third (https://www.nia.nih.gov/health/alzheimers-disease-fact-sheet). While the most common form of dementia, there are lots of different types other than Alzheimer’s. This course will examine these dementias from both biomedical and Chinese points of view, and discuss Chinese medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Often biomedical treatment involves pharmaceuticals with adverse drug reactions. Chinese medicine can help treat and support patients with dementia. Participants will leave with a real-world approach to treating these conditions.
This course will be a live webinar Sunday, June 13 and September 26, 2021 from 1-3pm.
A participant in this course will be able to:
- Understand Alzheimer’s and other dementias from a biomedical perspective
- Apply Chinese and biomedical diagnostics to patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
- Develop appropriate and effective treatment strategies
