In The Presence of The Emperor- Chinese Medicine Cardiology • Amos Ziv • Qi040
There are currents in our medicine that say we should be very cautious around the heart, in fact, it’s best not to treat it directly. And even in our modern world, treating cardiac issues is something I suspect most of us would feel some uncertainty and anxiousness about as we don’t really get that kind of training here in the West.
It is easy when thinking about cardiology to think about ischemic heart events, but most of a cardiologist’s practice is about managing the various risk factors so as to help people avoid a heart attack. Or in dealing with the slow decline of aging and heart failure.
In this episode we discuss ways of approaching this vital organ, and how Chinese medicine can be used to promote a healthy heart.
