Metabolic Syndrome, Blood and Chinese Medicine
Speaker: Sharon Weizenbaum
When: A lecture given at the #7 ICCM Congress, 2016
Field: Chinese Medicine - Practice
Metabolic Syndrome is associated with obesity, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and cardiovascular illness and insulin resistance. In western cultures it is on the rise and in our Chinese medical clinics, it is something we see every day.
How do with think about this from a Chinese medical perspective? Are there common diagnostic trends we can recognize in these patients?
Using her “clarifying diagnosis” methods, Sharon Weizenbaum has observed that the diagnosis for most of these patients includes blood pathology. In this half-day course, Sharon will explain exactly what she sees in these patients that led her to this conclusion. She will also explain the concept and diagnosis of systemic, rather than local, blood stasis in which the blood, in general, becomes too viscous. Then she will offer the patho-mechanisms from which this viscous blood leads to obesity, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Of course, the proof is in the pudding so she will then share the Chinese medical blood treatments that have given the results of lower blood pressure, blood insulin levels and blood cholesterol.
