How to use TCVM for the Treatment OF EPM

Wednesday June 16th, 2021 8:00 PM Eastern US Time

 

 

For our fifteenth webinar,  Huisheng Xie BSvm, MS, PhD will lecture on How to use TCVM for the Treatment OF EPM (equine protozoal myeloencephalitis). Only $70 for VBMA Members!

 

WEBINAR TOPIC:

 

Equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) is an important neurologic disease of horses.  Its conventional diagnosis, treatment and presentation have remained a big challenge to veterinary clinicians, parasitologists and researchers since it was initially noticed in 1968. This presentation will first overview these challenges and a unique role that immune system plays for this disease. Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) theory views this disease pattern as a Zheng Qi Deficiency with Qi and Blood Stagnation. The treatment strategies and protocols of herbal medicine and acupuncture will be discussed in detail. Case studies on how to integrate TCVM and western medical medicine for diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention will also be presented.

VBMA Endorses Quality Herbal Products

 

VBMA recognizes that the herbal product industry has faced quality control and regulatory challenges, and we recommend supporting those companies attempting to self regulate in a meaningful way. Companies that manufacture herbal products marketed for humans should be members of the American Herbal Products Association, an industry organization which explores issues, interacts with regulators, and establishes policy.  Veterinary product companies should be members of the National Animal Supplement Council, an organization which develops policies and procedures on adverse event reporting and quality control.
