The Complete Family Guide to Alternative Medicineby C. Norman Shealy
Somewhat misnamed, "alternative" medicine is comprised of a variety of therapies that have been around since ancient times. In fact, many alternative treatments, such as acupuncture and massage, predate "conventional" medicine by many centuries. As more and more people wish to take control of their own health, alternative medicine has become increasingly popular. And with this growth in interest comes a corresponding need for a clear, comprehensive guide to the variety of therapies available.
This authoritative book includes information on the background of alternative medicine and covers a comprehensive range of therapies from shiatsu to hypnotherapy, and from Chinese medicine to reflexology. Also included is a list of common ailments with recommendations on treatment, plus a quick alphabetical reference guide. 7 1/2" x 12". Color illus.288pp.
