Description

Complementary and alternative medicine [CAM] therapies are increasingly used in many branches of medicine as an effective and patient-friendly adjunct to conventional treatment. Based on a successful course at the Pritzker School of Medicine of the University of Chicago, this comprehensive text provides all practitioners, physicians, and allied health workers with a wide-ranging understanding of what CAM can offer, and has detailed chapters on therapies such as herbal medicine, meditation, acupuncture, and osteopathy. Throughout, the content is contemporary, evidence-based, and highly referenced. Comprising two sections, commonly used therapies and therapies for common medical conditions, the book has been thoroughly revised and updated since the publication of the first edition, with over forty new and expanded chapters. A major section on common medical disorders, with details of which CAM therapies may be most appropriate in their treatment, makes this an outstanding reference for medical students through to physicians interested in CAM methods and in integrating CAM into their everyday practice.
