The staggering complexity of the female reproductive system, with its close ties to the cyclical changes in nature, was well understood by the ancient Chinese.
In this seminar, Dr. Fruehauf will introduce a classically based clinical understanding of the female endocrine system that greatly expands upon the standard TCM understanding of a Liver blood based female physiology. Coursework is designed to expose practitioners to both classical concepts of female physiology and current threats to female reproductive health.
The materials presented will culminate in practical herbal strategies that can be used to immediately address female endocrine pathology in clinical practice.
