Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

About 62 percent of the US population presently seeks complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as a substitute or supplement to conventional medicine, and that figure likely includes a number of teenagers seeking to sustain health or augment healing. Subtitled Health Tips about Non-Traditional and Non-Western Medical Practices including Information about Acupuncture, Chiropractic Medicine, Dietary and Herbal Supplements, Hypnosis, Massage Therapy, Prayer and Spirituality, Reflexology, Yoga, and More, this offers an introduction to whole medical systems, manipulative and body-based practices, dietary remedies and herbal treatments, mind-body and energy medicine, using the senses and emotions to enhance well-being, and alternative treatments for specific situations such as pain, cancer, diabetes and mental health. The guide explains how to choose a practitioner, where to seek information about fraudulent health claims, how to find out if your insurance covers CAM treatments, and where to find resources.
