Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martha J. Greenberg, PhD, RN (Pace University)
Description: This is a guide to the more prevalent complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) modalities and therapies and traditional medical systems. This third edition updates the previous edition, presenting new therapies and up-to-date evidence and resources.
Purpose: The book provides current information about CAM fundamentals and foundations currently practiced in North America and Europe. Approaches to specific medical conditions for application in mainstream medical practice are included. Applications for clinical practice are addressed with some CAM modalities. The goal is to provide an understanding of CAM for healthcare professionals and students to serve patients, protect the public health, and expand their understanding of health and healing.
Audience: It is written for healthcare practitioners in a variety of disciplines, including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, etc. The author, a long time expert in the field of CAM, has gathered practitioner/authors of varying backgrounds and expertise to present the material.
Features: The first two sections are an introduction to the topic of CAM. Themes and terminology of CAM and the contexts helpful to interpretation are discussed, e.g., social and cultural factors and global dimensions. The final sections present information on therapies such as homeopathy, herbs, aromatherapy; on modalities such as energetic healing, humor; and finally, global health traditions such as ayurveda, auranderismo, and yoga.
Assessment: Although there are many similar books in this area, readers can be assured that Micozzi's contributions are always significant, usually adding depth that may or may not be found in other compendiums. Periodic new editions of this book are always necessary as the field strives to become increasingly evidenced based.
