Reviews

-From the newly interested integrative practitioner to the more experienced, this book is a necessary book in your clinic office, and should be on hand if trying to search for the evidence that exists to support a well trained ACNEM doctor.- ACNEM Journal Vol 30 No 1 - April 2011 -... this book is a thoroughly referenced evidence based text on integrative medicine dealing with a range of common disorders seen in clinical practice, although it does appear to be geared more to the medically?qualified practitioner with its emphasis on evidence based medicine, but this can only be viewed as a positive step toward CAM therapies being taken seriously. The book may encourage doctors to be more understanding?and accepting of their patients' desires to integrate CAM therapies with conventional treatment. ? All health practitioners should find the text a handy reference tool and useful addition to their library. Advanced students of naturopathy may find it invaluable?for assignments.- Australian Journal of Medical Herbalism 2011 23(1) -This textbook is written by three of the most renowned doctors of integrative medicine in Australia. The undertaking of such a book is to be commended and will surely be the forefront textbook for this subject.
