Relieving Pain Naturally: A Complete Guide to Drug-Free Pain Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For millions of Americans, severe pain is a fact of everyday life. Standard medicine commonly offers relief through drug therapies. While often effective, these medications come with a host of side effects-- disorientation, drowsiness, mental impairment, nausea, peptic ulcers, tinnitus, and addiction, to mention just a few. Moreover, after prolonged use, the body's tolerance to many of these drugs requires increased dosages to remain effective. Relieving Pain Naturally is divided into two parts. Part One examines over forty of the most common chronic pain-related conditions, from abdominal pain to sciatica to tendonitis. Each disorder is explained, and its alternative pain treatments detailed. Part Two offers twenty-seven drug-free therapies. These entries include both conventional treatments and alternative modalities such as acupuncture, biofeedback, heat and cold therapy, hypnosis, nutrition, and oxygen therapy. Also included are clinical studies and cautions, where applicable.

Review:

"In this hefty reference book, health writers Goldfarb and Waddell take on chronic pain, a topic many authors and physicians shy away from. There are few easy medical solutions to chronic pain, and the authors point out the problems with many conventional treatments, such as the addictiveness of narcotics, the gastrointestinal side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and the increased risk of heart attacks associated with prescription pain relievers known as COX-2 inhibitors (i.e., the recently recalled Vioxx). Health writers Goldfarb and Waddell tend to oversimplify the difference between conventional and alternative medicine, however, implying that while drugs wreak havoc inside the body, alternative therapies are 'natural' and therefore virtually nontoxic-an assertion that isn't always true. Nevertheless, they do succeed in offering quick and easy access to information about pain relief. The book's first half provides overviews of common pain conditions, from Achilles tendonitis to ulcerative colitis, explaining symptoms, causes, diagnostic criteria, conventional therapies and alternative therapies. In the book's second half, the authors summarize popular alternative therapies for pain, including homeopathy, bee venom therapy, exercise, acupuncture and acupressure. Both sections are likely to prove useful to people looking for new ways of coping with their pain." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
