Uterine fibroids are commonly occurring female hormone-dependent tumors. Currently there is no ideal drug treatment for uterine fibroids and treatment often defaults to surgical options despite the high rate of re-occurrence after surgery. Chinese medicine has a great advantage in the treatment of uterine fibroids to reduce fibroids, improve clinical symptoms, reduce bleeding, treat anemia and to restore physical strength.
Dr. Xu shares both his and his fathers 60 years of combined TCM and western medicine clinical experience in the treatment of gynecological diseases. Their practical and concrete treatment plans offer students the tools they need to successfully treat fibriods, regulate menstruation and assist women with fibroids in reproduction.
Through this online course students will be able to quickly grasp the pathogenesis, differential diagnosis and treatment of uterine fibroids. It will focus on syndrome differentiation and the experiences of the Xu family traditions, as well as the results of Dr. Xu's 5 year research project in treating uterine fibroids.
This course focuses on herbal medicine, in-depth methodology of applying chinese medicine, and practical applications.
