Synopsis: Finally, a book that puts alternative medicine into perspective and tells you what really works, what doesn't, what's a waste of time, and what's just downright dangerous. From a trusted source, Alternative Medicine For Dummies delivers real medical information backed by years of study and experience. This book will answer your questions, and explain the therapies that can really make a difference in your health and well being, and that of your families.Alternative Medicine For Dummies gives you facts and history on the most commonly used therapies today -- acupuncture, herbal remedies, meditation, yoga, chiropractic, massage therapy, biofeedback, megavitamins and more. It also gives you a practical, user-friendly guide to treating and alleviating symptoms of common ailments such as colds and flu to more serious conditions like depression and heart disease with alternative therapies. Expert authorsIncludes tips on finding an alternative practitioner that's right for you, as well as how to navigate a health food store in search of alternative medicines. Special sections are devoted to alternative medicine for children, seniors and women. This is the one-stop source of all the helpful information you need to understand and use alternative therapies today.

Review: It's a stretch to imagine a book entitled Alternative Medicine for Dummies--the subject is immeasurably vast (thousands of years of Eastern medicine, for example, is just one part of it) and new research is updating our knowledge daily. How can a clever For Dummies book skim the surface and yield anything worthwhile? The answer: by teaching readers to evaluate alternative treatments and practitioners, and take charge of educating themselves to make informed decisions. The book is organized into these sections:

  1. "What Everyone Needs to Know": Using alternatives safely, recognizing bogus claims, the importance of scientific evidence, and an overview of major alternative practices
  2. "Complementing Your Medicine": Getting good alternative care, working with your doctor, shopping in health-food stores
  3. "The Systematic Approach": Some philosophies of alternative healing: Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, naturopathy, and homeopathy
  4. "Hands-On Approaches": Chiropractic, osteopathy, acupuncture, and massage
  5. "Mind-Body Medicine": Relaxation techniques, including meditation, yoga, hypnosis, and biofeedback
  6. "Herbs and Other Natural Approaches": Using herbal remedies safely and effectively, benefits of specific herbs, herbs to avoid, aromatherapy, nutrition, and supplements
  7. "Specific Conditions": Ailments and their best-bet alternative approaches.
This book packs a ton of information and advice into 348 clearly and entertainingly written pages. It's a terrific introduction to this immense field. --Joan Price
