Alternative Cures That Really Work: They've Passed Scientific Scrutiny-Now Discover What These Proven Remedies Can Do for YouUser Review - Book Verdict
Your arthritic knees are killing you. Should you try acupuncture, glucosamine, magnets, fish oils, or one of the other popular alternative treatments for arthritis? Fortunately, this book will help you sort through the medical research miasma and spare you any daunting PubMed searches. Hoffman (Tired All the Time: How To Regain Your Lost Energy ) and Fox (coauthor,Syndrome X ) summarize and interpret the research on 101 alternative therapies for 21 disorders and rate these "cures" on a five-star scale. They discuss possible side effects and dosage guidelines, offer advice on selecting practitioners, and present an excellent overview of medical studies in general. While other books (e.g., Jean Carper's Miracle Cures and James Balch and Mark Stengler'sPrescription for Natural Cures ) cover the same territory, this manual stands apart as a succinct and authoritative alternative therapy guide. A much-needed antidote to the ubiquitous everything-but-the-kitchen-sink natural cure compendiums, it also serves as a reminder of the importance of developing strong health information literacy skills. Recommended for all public library and health collections.-Blanche Angelo, Livermore P.L., CA
Review: Alternative Cures That Really WorkUser Review - Goodreads
I skimmed through this book to read what ailments interested me. It was a good reference guide for a few certain "cures" but it didnt have as many remedies as I would have liked.
