Alternative Health Maintenance and Healing Systems for Families
This important book offers timely discussions of movements in modern medicine that have had great impact upon the family--the hospice movement and the integration of the family into birthing, care of the dying, the chronically ill, and the mentally ill. This book emphasizes that alternative health practices, often viewed as archaic by Western-trained health care personnel, do no have to be in conflict with modern medical practices, but can instead enrich and expand them. The authors discuss fascinating health practices which are changing the course of medicine.
