Course Overview

The Chinese view of menopause is based on a matriarchal ancient society. Once a woman stops “wasting blood” – this blood can now nourish her Heart and prepare her for her role in society as a “wise woman” – a leader of her community. Thus, menopause is another stage in a woman’s development, one of new harmony and well being, different from the previous stages. It should be asymptomatic!

The classics are clear on the 7-years cycle in women. However, the direct relationship TCM has made between menopause and Kidney weakness is far from comprehensive. The status of Earth (Spleen and Stomach) for example, is usually ignored as well as the imbalance caused in all other elements. This course describes these 5 elemental types of menopausal symptoms, highlighting the main symptoms and signs for each.

This Chinese Medicine part is preceded by a Western Medicine overview of perimenopause and menopause by Dr. Miller MD , LIC AC, MBA, both to advance your understanding of the western view and knowledge of menopause and to enable you to speak to patients and other medical in their own language.

The western point of view was well told and gave me new information and I can keep this in mind when I see my patients.
From TCM point of view, it’s refressing and very informative! I can apply the new made tools into my practis.
Thank you very much.

I really like this course because of the philosophical view on menopause. Good explanation of the different types.
The quizzes oblige me to really study, instead of just attending a course. I enjoyed it and would certainly recommend this course.

excellent integrative approach
This course discusses the 5-element Constitutions during the transition time to menopause (and beyond) and has given me a lot of food for thought, a better understanding of their typical weaknesses, symptoms and best treatment options. Really enjoyed it, definitely recommend!
