About this Seminar
Richard Blitstein, having studied with top TCM fertility experts in Beijing and Nanjing, has created this seminar to pass on the information he has learned both in China and from his private practice. The goal of this course is to provide you with proven, advanced and clinically useful information necessary to increase your effectiveness with infertility patients in your practice.

This seminar will provide you with both acupuncture and herbal treatment strategies for patients undergoing in- vitro fertilization (IVF) and intra-uterine insemination (IUI) according to the different phases of down-regulation, stimulation, retrieval, and transfer. It

will also look at pattern differntiated treatments for patients with PCOS and ovarian failure which are currently used in China by the top specialists.  It will also show how the hidden culprit behind many infertility cases is immune dysfunction and how you can treat it.
