Coyote Medicine: Lessons From Native American Healing

Coyote Medicine: Lessons From Native American Healing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by his Cherokee grandmother's healing ceremonies, Lewis Mehl-Madrona enlightens readers to "alternative" paths to recovery and health. Coyote Medicine isn't about eschewing Western medicine when it's effective, but about finding other answers when medicine fails: for chronic sufferers, patients not responding to medication, or "terminal" cases that doctors have given up on. In the story of one doctor's remarkable initiation into alternative ways to spiritual and physical health, Coyote Medicine provides the key to untapped healing methods available today.

Dr. Mehl-Madrona has extensive clinical, teaching, and research experience.

He has served as an associate professor at the University of Hawaii School of Medicine and as a research assistant professor at the University of Vermont College of Medicine at the Universities of Arizona and Vermont. His research interests focus on mathematical computer modeling as a means of aiding clinical decision-making and improving treatment evaluation. He is a recipient of the 1993 Excellence in Research as a Family Practice Resident Award from the American Academy of Family Practice. Dr. Mehl-Madrona is currently helping to create a clinic and training program for the integration of Western and indigenous healing methods. William L.
