"Dr. Anil Minocha is well-known for writing useful, practical guides for quality care. His newest text, A Guide to Alternative Medicine and the Digestive System is no disappointment. This is an eloquent and elegant evidence-based approach to a challenging area."
-Jack A. Di Palma, MD, University of South Alabama, Former President of the American College of Gastroenterology
"Dr. Minocha is to be applauded for his courage in tackling an issue, CAM, that the medical profession has traditionally chosen to ignore in the hope that it would simply go away. That CAM has stubbornly refused to disappear is a testament to its popularity with the general population and demands that we take it seriously, analyze why it is used and by whom and critically assess its efficacy and risks. For providing us with an accessible, fair and comprehensive critique of CAM in the context of modern medical practice, we all owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Minocha."
-Eamonn Quigley, MD, University College Cork, Ireland , Former President of the American College of Gastroenterology
