By integrating complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) with traditional medical treatment, this volume represents the next generation in the evolving field of integrative medicine. Features a unique approach and case studies immediately applicable to clinical practice. Far more than a review of CAM modalities, this is an evidence-based and clinically authoritative guide for family medicine and primary care providers.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sally Ling, M.D.;FACP(University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive and current review of integrative medicine, an approach to healing and promotion of well-being that engages allopathic medicine and complementary/alternative medicine philosophies. The book effectively covers basic principles and then by body system, reviews the integrative approach.
Purpose: The purpose is to inform and educate physicians and other healthcare professionals interested in obtaining greater insight into the process of healing and health maintenance by demonstrating how conventional and complementary and alternative medicine practices could be effectively used. This book is timely as the body of scientific evidence related to complementary and alternative medicine has grown substantially, and the authors are providing a practical framework that allows physicians and other healthcare professionals to understand and balance wellness-oriented and disease-oriented perspectives.
Audience: This book is written by experts in their respective fields, and may likely become a standard text for medical students at institutions with inclusive curricula. Likewise, it will be a helpful resource for practitioners who recognize the potential benefit of an integrative approach to their patients.
Features: The book includes a helpful and rather in-depth review of therapeutic modalities that represent the "toolbox" of the integrative practitioner. Subsequent parts of the book demonstrate how integrative medicine could be applied to specific systems and conditions. Where available, the authors provide information on the rigor of scientifically based clinical research.
Assessment: This is a valuable reference for students and practitioners desiring further information that will allow them to work more effectively with patients by using complementary and alternative medicine approaches to support the conventional medicine approach.
