An Integrative Health Sourcebook
Dr. Matilde Parente, M.D., F.C.A.P. - All books by this author

When it comes to your health, it’s important to know and understand all the options available to you. Should you stick with Western medicine alone? What are the benefits and dangers of alternative medicine? Can acupuncture, massage therapy, or meditation really help? In Healing Ways: An Integrative Health Sourcebook, you’ll find important information about conventional and alternative therapies, and how they can work together to help you reap maximum benefits. This approach is called Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), and it lets you combine the best of both worlds: mainstream medical therapies and alternative solutions that have high-quality scientific evidence for safety and effectiveness. In the pages of this guide, you will find:
  • How traditional Western medicine can work with CAM
  • Expectations, cautions, and myths
  • Talking to your doctor about CAM
  • How to be a better health consumer
  • How to decide which CAM methods are right for you
  • Integrated Approaches—from ancient to modern
  • Mind-Body Approaches, including mediation, yoga, relaxation techniques and more
  • Chiropractic, massage therapy, reflexology, and other body work
  • Herbal Medicine and Supplements
  • CAM Method Finder, and more
Take charge of your life—and your health—with this new approach to treatment that grows in popularity every day.

From the Reviews:
“Healing Ways: An Integrative Sourcebook provides a fresh and comprehensive overview of the various methods that comprise the field of integrative health, much of which was once considered alternative and hardly worthy of mainstream medical endorsement or interest.”
