Overview

Overview

Since the middle of the 20th century we've been living in the Age of Anxiety, says accomplished health journalist Stephanie Marohn. The incidence of anxiety disorders has risen dramatically in the last 50 years to the point where they are now the most common "mental" illness. One out of nine Americans suffers from it. Anxiety is a disorder with many faces, such as generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobias, posttraumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The Natural Medicine Guide to Anxiety persuasively shows how natural approaches can successfully put an end to all these types of anxiety. Marohn draws on some of the leading natural medicine practitioners and experts who use a range of effective natural treatments to end anxiety. The ten healers profiled in this book call upon an array of therapies including acupuncture, homeopathy, heavy metal detoxification, neural therapy, herbal medicine, flower essences, visceral manipulation, and psychological techniques. Numerous vivid, real-life case histories reveal how these natural approaches get to the heart of an anxiety disorder and produce lasting relief. This combination of proven, successful natural therapies covers the spectrum of body, mind, and spirit -- all the factors that produce anxiety. "By offering a comprehensive and deep approach to healing," says Marohn, "these therapies have the potential to help you find your way to a life free of the anxiety and fear that prevent you from living fully."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There are some special considerations involved in selecting material on alternative medicine for libraries. On the one hand, patrons deserve (and demand) information on a wide range of treatment options; on the other, as librarians, we also want to make sure that patrons are aware of standards and the best practices. Obviously, the usual selection criteria, such as author qualifications and the verifiability of source information, remain important as well. All these criteria are met by The Instinct To Heal. Founder of Doctors Without Borders and currently at the University of Pittsburgh, Servan-Schreiber has an impressive background. Here he explains the mainstream treatment of depression (a combination of drugs and talk therapy) in a neutral fashion. He then recommends alternative treatments, e.g., acupuncture, dawn simulation, heart coherence, and nutrition, and backs up his recommendations with citations from scientific journals. Material on self-treatment for depression and anxiety is in great demand, and this refreshing alternative is sound. Highly recommended for public libraries. The Natural Medicine Guide to Anxiety does not have the same qualifications. Written by a journalist, it cites mostly secondary sources, i.e., other articles and books written for the general public. Marohn covers several of the more speculative treatments, including psychic healing, flower essence therapy, and homeopathy. However, she does not sufficiently discuss the most commonly recommended treatment of drugs and cognitive-behavioral therapy, so the book lacks context and the solid grounding afforded by Servan-Schreiber in his work. Not recommended.-Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, WA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
