The number of individuals turning to unconventional medical therapies continues to increase each year. Now, more than ever, today's medical and health care professionals require the knowledge and skills to successfully "bridge the gap" between conventional therapies and complementary/alternative medicine (CAM). McGraw-Hill now introduces the latest compilation of integrative approaches to many conditions and syndromes. This work reflects the authors' synthesis of many years of clinical experience and the theories underlying the many alternative modalities and traditional medical practices. Clinicians will find this text a highly effective resource.Built on the evidence-based expertise developed at New York City's Beth Israel Center for Health and Healing - the largest integrative medicine practice in the United States - "Integrative Medicine" uniquely combines a body systems approach with practical case studies, to clearly illustrate how clinicians can successfully incorporate conventional and CAM therapies into their daily practice.Ideal either as a classroom text or a clinical reference, "Integrative Medicine" features: an evidence-based approach that's immediately applicable to clinical practice - What works? What is safe and effective? and, What alternative therapies can potentially interact with traditional therapies?; a unique organization by body system (not by modality) - so it's easy to find thorough, practical information for managing a patient's specific condition; "Case Examples" that clearly demonstrate the application of an integrated approach to daily practice; unique grand round style discussion - "Selected Cases in Integrative Medicine through the Life Cycle"; and, integrative plans for conditions in women's health, cardiology, gastroenterology, urology, infectious disease, pediatrics, rheumatology, oncology, dermatology, and more.It also features: case-by-case evaluations of diet, nutritional supplements, botanicals, mind/body approaches, manipulation therapies, and alternative systems such as Asian medicine and homeopathy; coverage of potential adverse interactions between alternative and conventional therapies; and, concise reviews of the major disciplines and protocols of complementary and alternative medicine, written by world authorities.Current, comprehensive, and authoritative, "Integrative Medicine" provides you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to inform, educate, and treat those patients who are interested in or currently using unconventional medical therapies.
