 Essentials of Complementary & Alternative Medicine (View larger image)

Four out of ten patients visited a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner last year. Essentials of Complementary & Alternative Medicine provides the information needed to understand this phenomenon. This practical source brings together today’s leading CAM researchers and practitioners to offer the reader insights into the social and scientific foundations of CAM, the safety and efficacy of CAM products and practices, and overviews of 20 commonly used CAM modalities. Essentials of Complementary & Alternative Medicine helps you inform, educate, and treat patients who are interested in or currently using CAM. Part I, ‘Social and Scientific Foundations of CAM’, discusses the history, ethics, and scientific study of CAM. Part II discusses the safety of many CAM products and practices, including herbs, dietary and nutritional products, and homeopathy. Part III provides overviews of 20 common CAM modalities, including Ayurvedic Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Naturopathy. Today’s health care practitioners need new knowledge and skills to effectively treat patients who are using or considering CAM. Essentials of Complementary & Alternative Medicine is an indispensable source.
