Post natal depression

Masters in Chinese Medicine

I treat many people for emotional issues, varying from stress, to depression and sometimes more serious conditions, including schizophrenia, bipolar and manic depression.

For a long while, I wanted to study blood loss (haemorrhage) and its relationship with depression. Most specifically, post natal depression.

The time has come, and late last year I enrolled on a Masters degree in Chinese Medicine where I learn all about Chinese herbs. I am absolutely loving being a student again, and learning so much on the herbs subject. I did not know I was going to be getting so in depth with organic chemistry. The word pharmacokinetics was alien to me, but it comes as a pleasant surprise, as I get to learn about safely administering herbs and its relationship with medications. I thoroughly enjoy expanding my knowledge in Western as well as Chinese Medicine.

As a part time masters, I have 4 years to complete my research, but I am already working towards it. I do not have the actual question, but for now, I am reading lots on haemorrhage and depression signs and symptoms, and treatment and care.
