Description

In this 3-hour presentation, Sharon will first discuss the pathophysiology of pre-eclampsia with an emphasis on Chinese medicine.  Once we understand the nature of this imbalance, we can then understand the early warning signs for this disease.  Chinese medicine can be extremely helpful for women who are at risk for this illness or who have been diagnosed with it.  We will learn some key treatment methods in terms of herbs and diet.  

 

Learning Objectives:

The practitioner will learn to:

  • To understand what pre-eclampsia is from a western and Chinese medical perspective
  • To learn to identify the potential for pre-eclampsia before it manifests 
  • To learn to take appropriate measures to prevent pre-eclampsia
