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.

    It was a good overview of the Alzheimer’s and other dementias from the Western and Chinese Medical points of view. Greg was clear in his presentation and provided good resources and references.

    thank you

  4. Marianne

    I was completely disappointed in this course. I was aiming to get information about treating dementia with Tcm and thought that would be the objective of the course. It was only in the last 40 minutes that the TCM was addressed. The only thing that was offered pages from reference texts that describe patterns and herb and acupuncture protocols. I easily can look up this information myself and expect more from a course than this.

    Great personal stories about how he’s treated patients with Alzheimers. Highly reccomended to learn from Greg! Had him at PCOM years ago when I was in clinic and now in my own practice for almost 13 years. I really enjoy his teaching style for continuing education. I will coming back for more of his classes. Thank you!
