Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes, by health writer David Drum, is a well-researched look at alternative therapies which may help people control diabetes in conjunction with good medical treatment. The book has chapters on vitamins, minerals, supplements and herbal medicines which may be useful in controlling high blood sugar and other symptoms of diabetes. Exercise, body work, new dietary strategies and more controversial therapies such as chelation therapy and DSMO are included. Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes includes chapters on the benefits of meditation, hypnosis, biofeedback, social support, yoga, tai chi, music therapy, aromatherapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, flower remedies, light therapies and magnets, therapeutic touch and even spiritual healing.

"Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes is a useful and comprehensive look at alternative therapies for people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. David Drum examines more than two dozen therapies and presents a great deal of available research in a factual manner. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in "going a little farther" along the road to self-managing their diabetes."
