Offers information on alternative healing and examines treatments including herbal, nutritional, homeopathic, naturopathic, and stress management
In the winter of 1995/96, bestselling nutritionist Dr. Gary Null talked with more than a hundred leading alternative health practitioners from all over the country to ascertain which approaches they found most effective when treating the health problems that affect women most. He then conducted a wide-ranging computer search of studies reported in the medical literature on the same topics. The result is The Woman's Encyclopedia of Natural Healing, a health compendium for women, founded in holistic principles and featuring the most up-to-date clinical experiences and published research. Emphasizing tried and proven alternative approaches, The Woman's Encyclopedia of Natural Healing complements works based in conventional modalities such as The New Our Bodies, Ourselves. Divided into 28 chapters, each topic includes a thorough discussion of the health problem and the recommended alternative approaches to prevention and treatments.
