Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Altshuler, a board-certified physician, incorporated alternative medicine treatments into his practice 25 years ago and received advanced training in several alternative therapies. His book is an attempt to present a balanced overview of the best of conventional and alternative healing therapies. After weighing the pros and cons of modern medicine vs. integrative medicine, the author shows how the two medical styles can be combined to treat 100 common ailments. The entries in this A-to-Z section include common symptoms, recommendations, and treatment plans. Altshuler cautions readers to remember that patients are different and that one therapy combination may not work for all. He also advises readers to work closely with a medical professional when using combined therapies. Two appendixes provide a list of alternative methods and procedures and alternative medicine products. Altshuler's experience with both types of therapies and his balanced approach make this book a valuable addition to any consumer health library or consumer health collection.-Marge Kars, Bronson Methodist Hosp.
