This is an essential text for naturopathic medical students and clinical practitioners pursuing complementary and alternative treatments for endocrine disorders and imbalances -- diabetes, hypothyroidism, adrenal exhaustion, impotence, menopause, and other metabolic disorders. The book features three sections: a textbook geared to medical college curriculum; a clinician's handbook of diagnostic and therapeutic protocols; and a selection of recent clinical studies and literature reviews by other renowned physicians, notably Alan R. Gaby (MD), John Lee (MD), Gregory Kelly (ND), Zoltan Rona (MD), Denis Wilson (MD), and Abram Hoffer (MD). This collaboration between leading medical and naturopathic doctors makes Fundamentals of Naturopathic Endocrinology uniquely valuable for all healthcare professionals. Fully illustrated, with extensive references, featuring case studies from Dr Friedman's medical files.

Fundamentals of Naturopathic Endocrinology is designed to be a textbook for professors and students of naturopathic medicine, a desk reference for clinicians treating patients with endocrine disorders, and a convenient resource for all healthcare professionals wanting to read more about naturopathic endocrinology research. The purpose of the book is to apply naturopathic methods of understanding, diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease to a wide range of endocrinerelated disorders. ú This book is divided into three sections: a student textbook of naturopathic endocrinology based on current research; a clinical handbook of naturopathic protocols to diagnose and treat the most common endocrine disorders; and a selection of key clinical studies and research reports written by leading medical doctors and scientists. Case studies from clinical practice illustrate the principles outlined in the text. ú This book enables students of naturopathic medicine to enter their clinical training with increased confidence in understanding and treating disorders of the endocrine system. The student can draw upon the substantial knowledge and clinical experience accumulated in these pages, as well as quickly call up the many scientific references provided from recent literature in medical journals, naturopathic and botanical medicine publications, and endocrinology textbooks. ú This book offers practicing physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals a very practical clinical companion, covering established diagnostic and therapeutic protocols for endocrine disorders in quick reference charts. ú This book does not aim to replace standard endocrinology textbooks but rather to complement them. It is very much a cooperative effort between naturopathic and medical doctors. The work of prominent medical doctors, such as Abram Hoffer, John Lee, and Alan R. Gaby, is published alongside the work of respected naturopathic doctors, such as Gregory S. Kelly.
