Speaker: 

This was one of the best CE classes I have taken in the past 10 years. I will absolutely be coming back to take other classes. The instructor, Dr. Cahill, was very organized and knowledgeable. The handouts were fantastic. Thank You.

PCOS is the #1 cause of reproductive infertility worldwide. And yet, PCOS has historically been described as “too difficult to treat” by many TCM practitioners.

This course serves to demystify misconceptions surrounding PCOS. By unraveling PCOS from an etiological perspective, we will learn what PCOS is—and what it is not. We will create a new framework for approaching PCOS by first identifying the factors involved in PCOS from the Western perspective, and then overlaying those factors onto TCM pattern differentiation. This approach creates a broader understanding of PCOS—by phenotype and presenting signs and symptoms—and allows for making more precise TCM diagnoses, developing more targeted treatments, and, therefore, increased clinical efficacy.

You will come away from this course with not only a deeper understanding of the pathophysiology of PCOS, but specific TCM treatment recommendations—including acupuncture point protocols and herbal prescriptions and modifications—that reduce PCOS symptoms and lead to improved reproductive outcomes. You will also have the tools for talking with your patients about lifestyle modifications they can adopt for long-term success.

I felt that Kandace\'s passion for the subject really came through in this class. ~ Bonnie

Kandace was amazing and the information was great. Honestly, I feel like the course could have been longer as I would have loved to get more information from her, based on her clinical experience.

It was a fabulous course. I was so inspired by the breadth and depth of Kandace\'s knowledge, the passion that motivates her, and her quality as a presenter. But what touched me was her humble compassionate nature (unfortunately this might not be as obvious in the recorded versions). Thank you Kandace I hope your vision does come true. ~ Karen

This was a fabulous course. Kandace provides so much information, not only about PCOS but about fertility and women\'s hormonal health more generally. I will definitely re-visit her lecture and slides. ~ Ruth
