Overview

This Complete Guide to Integrative Medicine answers a real need for increasing numbers of people who use-or want to use-alternative healing therapies combined with conventional medicine. This book can help the reader develop an effective approach to combining orthodox techniques with tried-and-tested natural healing therapies. Learn more about:

Best Of Both Worlds: Inside, there are treatment options for 40 ailments that particularly respond to integrative medicine. For example, back and neck pain benefit from homeopathy, massage, and relaxation techniques in combination with painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. To help you evaluate the effectiveness of therapies for particular ailments, the authors provide never-before-published ratings based on current research. In addition, numerous case studies show integrated methods in action.

Organized Assessment: Readers are encouraged to examine the causes of illness in relation to the whole person, and then apply this to a personal strategy for improving health. An illustrated glossary profiles a range of complementary therapies, while an interactive healthcare plan sets out easy-to-follow guidelines on health factors, including diet, exercise, posture, and stress management.

The Future Of Healthcare: A growing number of medical professionals- and insurance companies-believe that future healthcare depends on the successful integration of conventional and alternative healing methods. This Complete Guide to Integrative Medicine offers authoritative, practical, and timely guidance to improving health in the 21st century.
