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.

Course Goals

A participant in this course will be able to:

1. Understand hyperlipidemias from a biomedical perspective
2. Apply Chinese and biomedical diagnostics to hyperlipidemia patients
3. Develop appropriate and effective treatment strategies
