Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Brown, a researcher who writes about alternative approaches to health, and Walker, a former hospital pharmacist with advanced degrees in Chinese medicine and homeopathy, have coauthored books on consumer drug information and on the management of menopause. Their most recent collaboration is another response to the public's increasing interest in alternative medicine. Each entry briefly outlines the condition as well as conventional treatments, with the primary focus on drug therapies. The authors then suggest one or more nontraditional approaches to managing the condition, such as nutritional and herbal therapies, homeopathy, relaxation techniques, or lifestyle changes. Introductory chapters include a review of the principle of homeopathic medicine and important guidelines to consider when using homeopathic remedies. The book offers a useful approach to the topic but should be supported by more general texts. Recommended for alternative medicine collections.--Cathy Weglarz, Univ. of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, New Brunswick
