Overview

Americans spent an astounding $13.7 billion on alternative medical treatments in 1990, a figure that's certainly grown since then. But do these therapies work? That's the question this book answers. In clean, clear, accessible language, it evaluates 600+ studies on more than two dozen kinds of alternative and complementary treatments. Instead of vague generalities and anecdotal evidence, this book gives you scientific proof that many alternative therapies are indeed effective. (When they aren't, it points that out too.) Easy for a layperson to read, it's also rigorous enough to change the mind of the most hidebound conventional MD. Convince your doctor that it makes sense to try just one low-cost, low-impact alternative to a traditional medical procedure - or save yourself the time and money you might have spent on a dubious alternative treatment - and this book will have paid for itself many times over.
