Treating Inflammatory Bowel Disease with Chinese Medicine

with Greg Sperber

Patients with inflammatory bowel disease or ulcerative colitis often seek their cure in complementary medicine, because conventional medical therapies are accompanied by considerable side effects. There are more than 10 TCM conditions that are possible for these diseases, and an exemplary prescription is presented for each, and acupuncture prescriptions are also mentioned. Complex combinations of the 10 or so patterns are also discussed. Dietetics, lifestyle adaptation, moxa... much can be done to manage these diseases that violently disrupt well-being. After 2 hours with Greg Sperber, you'll find yourself able to boldly tackle your next case of colitis or Crohn's and also treat it successfully.
