Description

Many of our fertility patients are diagnosed with uterine fibroids. How do fibroids interfere with the process of becoming pregnant and with pregnancies in general? As Chinese herbalists, how do we work with women who have fibroids if they are trying to become pregnant or are already pregnant? How is our treatment of fibroids vary depending on whether the patient is entering the world of childbearing or not? Why are many of the protocols taught by modern Chinese medicine ineffective for treating fibroids? What is effective? These are the questions that Sharon will address in this 3-hour talk. She will teach practitioners how and when to work safely and effectively with uterine fibroids before, during and after pregnancy.
