Treating High Cholesterol with Chinese Medicine
High cholesterol and triglycerides (hyperlipidemias) have been shown to contribute to heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Drugs used to treat these conditions are consistently in the top ten drugs sold in the US. Chinese medicine can help these patients in natural and effective ways. This course looks at the biomedical side of these conditions including the pathophysiology, common (and not so common) lab tests, and treatments, mostly pharmaceuticals. Then we will look at how Chinese medicine can help. We will discuss acupuncture, herbs, and lifestyle changes and the evidence to support their use. Practitioners will walk away with a clear understanding of these conditions and tools on how to help their patients.
This course will be presented as a live webinar on Sunday, October 30, 2022 from 1 to 3pm.
