Complementary and alternative medicine [CAM] therapies are increasingly used in many branches of medicine as an effective and patient-friendly adjunct to conventional treatment. This important textbook offers all practitioners, physicians and allied health workers a wide-ranging understanding of what CAM can offer.
Based on a successful course offered at the Pritzker School of Medicine of the University of Chicago, this comprehensive text has detailed chapters on therapies such as herbal medicine, meditation, acupuncture and osteopathy. Throughout, the content is contemporary, evidence-based and thoroughly 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 40 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.
