If you are interested in looking beyond traditional medicine and conventional approaches to managing MS, Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis, Second Edition, is essential. The nearly 300-page handbook provides accurate and unbiased information on a wide range of complementary and alternative approaches for symptom management as well as general health and well-being.
Written by the Medical Director of the Rocky Mountain MS Center and the Director of the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Program based at the Center, Dr. Bowling presents what is currently known on a range of potential treatments, cites evidence where it exists, and discusses treatment options clearly and objectively.
Readers will get the facts on Candida treatment, dental amalgam removal, Feldenkrais, hippotherapy, hyperbaric oxygen, low-dose Naltrexone, Prokarin, marijuana, vitamins, minerals, and much more. The third part of the book offers a five-step approach to integrating conventional and unconventional medicine and a summary of the effects of popular dietary supplements.
Each chapter provides a description of the treatment method, study findings in MS, possible side effects, practical information, a conclusion and additional readings.
