Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Despite the hokey headings (``Juice Therapy: Putting the Squeeze on Good Health''; ``Reflexology: You Can't Beat the Feet''), this volume offers a clear, concise introduction to a wide range of complementary healing practices from around the world. Part I explains 16 modalities- from acupressure to yoga-in simple terms that make accessible even such esoteric concepts as the relationship between quantum physics and Ayurveda. Sidebars offer additional pointers, from instructions on making ghee to a list of questions to ask a homeopath. Part II presents an impressive array of do-it-yourself natural remedies for 163 common health problems-as well as caveats on when to seek professional advice. Under ``Burns,'' for example, after a subheading entitled ``See Your Medical Doctor When...'' are suggestions for treatments by practitioners of seven modalities, including aromatherapy, Ayurveda and vitamin and mineral therapy. An ``Illustrations'' section depicts acupressure and reflexology points, massage strokes and exercises. Part III, not seen by PW, includes resources and index. Author tour. (Sept.)

Alternative self-help treatments for 150 health problems and 16 natural remedies are covered in this publication, which is organized in three sections. Part 1 covers the healing methods, their principles and origins. Such natural remedies such as acupressure, massage, juicing, and aromatherapy are among those described in four-to eight-page entries. Part 2 is an alphabetical listing of 160 mostly non-life-threatening health problems e.g., acne, infertility, grief, ingrown toenails and brief descriptions of the appropriate natural remedies that can be applied to the conditions. Descriptions of methods such as reflexology, acupressure, and yoga refer the user to an appendix for details of the technique. For example, there are front, back, and side views illustrating acupressure points on the body. Each entry also advises to "see your medical doctor when . . ." The resources section includes organizations, books, and mail-order sources According to a recent "New York Times" article, Americans spend millions of dollars a year on alternative treatment so there is an audience for this type of material, but for reference purposes a more comprehensive and more expensive title is "Alternative Medicine" ["RBB" Ap 15 94]. That title covers 43 alternative therapies and more than 200 disorders. The entry for each type of therapy includes a description of the treatment, a list of organizations and mail-order sources, and a recommended reading list. It is broader in scope, covering not only self-help treatments but alternative therapies that require the intervention of a professional, such as oxygen therapy, kinesiology, and colon therapy. A glossary, index, list of contributors, and bibliography make "Alternative Medicine" the better choice as a reference source. Public libraries will want to consider adding "New Choices" to their circulating collections.
