Synopsis

The popularity of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has risen sharply in the last decade. This consumer driven movement affects all specialities of conventional medicine and can influence the decision-making process and practice of primary care physicians. It is critical for today's medical professionals to be familiar with the potential benefits, adverse effects, and interactions of different CAM therapies. Textbook of Complementary and Alternative Medicine presents a sound academic understanding of the healing therapies, approaches, and systems of CAM. The editors take a two-pronged approach to the subject. They discuss the underlying principles and their relevance to conventional medicine and provide in-depth information on specific therapies for common medical conditions. The book focuses on the CAM therapies most often used and therefore, most likely to effect a physician's practice.There are a number of CAM books available. However, most of authors of these books are CAM practitioners, neuropathic physicians, or both. This book is unique in that the contributors are academic physicians and other mainstream professionals.

Thoroughly referenced, Textbook of Complementary and Alternative Medicine is a science-based guide to the wide range of herbal and other CAM therapies and to understanding their application to human health and their interaction with conventional medicine.
