Overview

Leading physicians review the latest approaches to the treatment of cardiovascular disease with complementary therapy. In addition they relate these treatments in combination therapy with traditional medicine and show how the combined therapy works to help patients suffering from cardiovascular disease. The book also dispels myths about complementary therapies and provides evidence-based recommendations on the wide variety of therapies available to the practicing physician. Because patients are often self-treating with complementary medicine, this book is essential for all cardiologists, internists and general practitioners who treat cardiovascular disease.
