Blended Medicine is the next wave in healthcare. It takes all healing arts available today -- from mainstream medicine to yoga -- and chooses the best healing strategy for any condition. Over one third of Americans currently use alternative therapies, indicating that they already practice "blended medicine" to a degree. Now they have the ultimate authority on the new holistic healing frontier.

Blended Medicine profiles 21 mainstream and alternative therapies, including nutrition, naturopathy and biofeedback, explaining each in detail and describing what it is most successfully used to treat. An A to Z reference of 106 health conditions describes and prioritizes each ailment's most effective therapies. Blended Medicine introduces a new world of medicine where mainstream doctors and alternative practitioners provide effective and enlightened health care to every individual.
