Are you feeling frustrated in your efforts to effectively treat liver disease? Liver disease ranks high as a source of exasperation to veterinarians – so much so Milk Thistle was the first herb to be used on a widespread basis by veterinarians, even by those who otherwise denigrate complementary medicine. Milk Thistle has the advantage of being broadly applicable, or at least safe for use in almost any condition, but improvements are often incomplete, if seen at all. We can do better.

Join Dr Steve Marsden for this two part webinar series as he introduces several Chinese herbal formulas for liver disease, their mechanisms of action, and exactly how to apply them safely and effectively. He includes a discussion on the safety of Bupleurum, which many veterinarians are hesitant to use in liver disease following blog comments years ago by Narda Robinson. Newsflash: Bupleurum works extremely well and is safe, but you need to use it correctly. Dr Marsden will tell you how!

Lastly, he talks about how liver micro-circulation changes seasonally, helping you better assess the likely state of liver micro-circulation in your patients so you know what formulas will work best for them; and on how to follow up on those cases to ensure you were right!
