PCOS Patterns and Treatment Class Outline
Pathophysiology and Chinese Patterns of PCOS
Learn how to take your treatments to the next level in this dynamic course on enhancing fertility outcomes with PCOS patients. This course explores PCOS, Insulin Resistance and how a constitutional change caused by the standard American diet has lead to a new subset of patients classified as poor responders to advanced reproductive technologies. Understanding these factors eliminates symptom chasing and increases efficacy of treatments. Pathophysiology of PCOS is identified as it relates to modern day patients in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and allopathic medicine. Covered topics include pattern diagnosis and differential diagnosis, pathophysiology, nutritional guidelines, communication with reproductive endocrinologists and treatment strategies.
