In this acupuncture continuing education course we will explore the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) with both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. First, we will define IBS, presenting signs and symptoms, and treatment from a Western medical perspective. Then, get a glimpse of the demographics, prevalence and epidemiology related to IBS patients. The acupuncturist can expect to learn about pattern differentiation and treatment from a Chinese medical point of view as well as research regarding efficacy. The impact of IBS on the patient quality of life will also be discussed. This course will include appropriate evidence-based treatment practices for maximum understanding and competencies in treatment.
