Course Overview
Infertility in women under the age of 40 responds very well to Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, especially when structural complications of uterine fibroids, polycystic ovaries or fallopian tube damage are absent. The teacher's personal success rate in successful pregnancies is above 85% for women who have chosen not to use IVF or hormone therapy. There are numerous TCM patterns that inhibit fertility, and most cases are directed at regulating problems of menstruation: irregularity, amenorrhea, menorrhagia, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Threatened miscarriage can be due to deficiency, heat or trauma, and appropriate formulas are discussed. Dr. Fratkin presents available herbal products and custom formulas, as well as a discussion of hormone physiology and the application of Western lab diagnosis. Extensive handout notes are included with the recorded course.
