Click here to watch one-hour webinar, download notes.
Very little research has been done on the topic of herb drug interaction in relationship to infertility protocols. All practitioners treating infertility patients undergoing medicated treatments face the question of the safety and efficacy of Chinese herbs in conjunction with hormones.
In this webinar, we will introduce the concept of "pharmacoenergetics" – the translation of Western drugs/hormones into Chinese energetics. By analyzing the therapeutic effects of Clomed as well as its side effects, we can incorporate it as a Jun herb in our formula. This analysis also allows us to be very specific in our prescriptions for the benefit of our patients on Clomed. In this upcoming session, we will give examples of these formulas backed up by case studies.
Moderated by Lorne Brown Dr.TCM, FABORM, CHt, Clinical Director of Acubalance Wellness Centre Vancouver British Columbia.
