Whether you are an ardent believer in alternative medicine, a skeptic, or are simply baffled by the range of services and opinions, this groundbreaking analysis lays to rest doubts and contradictions with authority, integrity, and clarity. Over thirty of the most popular treatments including acupuncture, homeopathy, aromatherapy, reflexology, chiropractic, and herbal medicines are examined for their benefits and potential dangers. What works and what doesn t? Who can you trust, and who is ripping you off? In its scrutiny of alternative and complementary cures, this book also strives to reassert the primacy of the scientific method as a means for determining public health practice and policy.

Reviews

"Physicians should recommend the book to their patients, and it will help health practitioners provide patients with sound advice." -- New England Journal of Medicine "Entertaining as well as informative. . . . The examination of evidence is comprehensive, forensic, and for champions of these therapies, damning." -- Toby Murcott - Nature
