Our main objective is to gain a better understanding of the hot flash from both a Chinese and western medical perspective. Is it a zang-fu organ or five-phase problem? Is it a channel imbalance? Is it the blood? Is it a neurological hyper-stimulation? Or is it truly and simply a hormone fluctuation and that’s that!

Goals & Objectives

  1. You will learn how and why even experienced clinicians fail to effectively relieve hot flashes.
  2. You will learn how to simultaneously diagnosis and treat excess and deficiency patho-mechanisms in unison to give you better clinical results.
  3. You will understand and learn why treating the kidney is not always the most direct way to treating the menopausal transition patient.
  4. You will learn to avoid common treatment pitfalls and clinical setbacks with your menopausal transition patient.
