From several thousand years of development, Chinese medicine has deep-reaching and insightful ways to understand, diagnose and treat disease. Using case studies from his clinical experience, Brendan will discuss the similarities and differences in treating different kinds of cancer, including leukemia (blood cancer) and breast cancer. Diet, lifestyle, western herbs, and the connection between cancer and larger societal and environmental issues will be discussed. Detailed hand-outs will be provided.
