The Western medical etiology, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis and treatment of essential hypertension is covered in this class. Also covered is the Chinese medical disease causes, mechanisms, patterns, and their treatments. Bob Flaws also introduces a recently developed research formula from the People’s Republic of China which treats a combination of qi, blood, and yin vacuities with wind, heat, and/or blood stasis, a commonly seen multi-pattern presentation in “asymptomatic” hypertension patients. This class covers both acupuncture and Chinese medicinal therapies.
