This superb new medical reference from the world-renowned Duke Center for Integrative Medicine presents a state-of-the-art approach to integrative care

Increasingly the trend in health care is away from a disease-oriented, physician- and technology-centered model toward a wellness-oriented, patient-centered approach that combines alternative healing therapies with conventional medicine. Nowhere is this holistic philosophy of healing practiced at a higher level than at the Duke Center for Integrative Medicine (DCIM).

This medical reference, with hundreds of full-color images, is the most authoritative and comprehensive ever published on integrative care. It contains:

  • individual entries for more than 200 common health concerns with a detailed description of Duke's integrative approach to treating each condition
  • profiles of nearly 100 complementary and alternative healing therapies?from acupuncture to ayurveda, magnet therapy to massage, vitamin and mineral supplementation to Zen meditation

This book is an essential medical resource for the 21st century?one that belongs in every home.
