Holistic Medicine: A Guide to Alternative Healing
Over the past decade, public enthusiasm for complementary therapies has caused an increasing number of conventional doctors to consider them more seriously. There is a growing interest, too, in integrated medicine - a highly desirable system that combines orthodox and complementary methods of treatment. Indeed, an increasing number of such treatments are now becoming available through the National Health Service. Similarly, some doctors are happy to have a holistic therapist as part of their practice, or to refer their patients for various types of complementary treatment. In this book you will find basic information about some of the major alternative and complementary therapies available. Each one is clearly explained and illustrated, with advice and information to help you choose the right therapy for a particular circumstance.
