Publisher's Weekly Review

Larry Trivieri Jr., contributing editor of Alternative Medicine magazine and coauthor of The Complete Self-Care Guide to Holistic Medicine, advocates self-care and prevention in The American Holistic Medical Association Guide to Holistic Health: Healing Therapies for Optimal Wellness. Proper eating and exercise, vitamins, herbal remedies, "Conscious Laughter," environmental awareness and a host of other salutary, common-sense practices play a part. The no-frills presentation and imprimatur of the Association (active since 1978) should convince skeptics and the curious alike. ( May 18) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Choice Review

Triveri, a lay author, wrote this work in consultation with members of the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA). It provides a resource about holistic medicine for users or potential users of complementary or integrative therapies. Chapter 1 overviews holistic medicine: its definition, advantages, history, and philosophy. It discusses each of the 12 principles of holistic medicine as developed by the American Holistic Medical Associative and describes the six components of holistic health. Chapter 2 presents guidelines for creating and maintaining health from a whole-person perspective. Specific self-care approaches are offered for each of the six components (physical, environmental, mental, emotional, spiritual, social). Chapters 3-15 overview the various therapies used in holistic medicine: nutrition, mind-body, osteopathic, chiropractic, traditional Chinese, homeopathy, naturopathy, botanical, Ayurveda, yoga, and others. Each chapter includes an introduction, "fast facts" or key points, history, principles, specific approach, conditions that benefit from use of that therapy, a case study, the first session, selecting a practitioner, resources, and recommended readings. Several therapies also include a section for cautions and contraindications. Well written, with an extensive bibliography. Suitable as a practical guide for many health professionals as well as anyone interested in learning more about holistic medicine. General readers; undergraduates; professionals. M.
