Reviews provided by Syndetics


This extremely comprehensive and well-organized review combines published evidence on complementary/alternative medicine with discussion of conventional treatments and valuable clinical experience. Edited by two women (both, Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Univ. of Arizona), this exceptional collection of 38 chapters by 44 well-qualified female health care providers is divided into four sections. "Lifestyle" features chapters on nutrition, physical activity, mind/body, and more. "Systems and Modalities" covers traditional Chinese medicine, energy and manual medicine, Ayurveda, and homeopathy. "Reproductive Health" encompasses subjects ranging from perinatal depression to menopause to sexuality. Finally, "Common Illnesses in Women" addresses topics such as headaches, anxiety, eating disorders, cardiovascular health, osteoporosis, and aging. Each chapter starts with a case study and highlights patient examples throughout. Illustrative figures and numerous tables summarize factual data and research, and the book provides extensive references and Web site addresses. Although the intended audience is professional, laypeople will discover that most acronyms are spelled out, definitions (e.g., "Glossary of exercise terminology") are provided, and the index is adequate. The various sections show some repetition in their approach to issues such as the use of herbs, aromatherapy, exercise, probiotics, yoga, meditation, and acupuncture. The book includes some material on cost considerations and insurance coverage. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above. E. R. Paterson SUNY College at Cortland
