Fundamentals of Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Marc S. Micozzi
Churchill Livingstone, 2001 - Medical - 464 pages
The cornerstone text in the popular series Medical Guides to Complementary and Alternative Medicine, edited by Dr. Micozzi, FUNDAMENTALS OF COMPLEMENTARY & ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE returns fully updated and expanded in its second edition. The unique approach in this book provides the historical background of alternative healing systems, in addition to the most up-to-date information on scientific research, plus basic clinical applications. Rather than attempting to address every conceivable alternative therapy, this text instead explores those that are best supported by clinical trials and hard evidence, making it a particularly valuable reference within traditional medical settings. Intended as an introduction to the topic of alternative medicine, Dr. Micozzi's book has become the standard among medical and health care professionals who wish to learn about incorporating these procedures into an allopathic practice.
