Guided by Hippocrates' dictum, this book takes a scientific look at the current plethora of alternative treatments that are rapidly growing in popularity.

This work contains in a condensed form a very large portion of all that is practically useful in the treatment of
the diseases ordinarily occurring in this country. The symptoms are given with sufficient minuteness and
detail to enable any one of ordinary capacities of observation to distinguish the complaint; and the treatment is
so plainly laid down, that no one need make a mistake. If strictly followed, it will, in a very large proportion
of cases, effect cures, even when administered by those unacquainted with the medical sciences generally.
OVER THE PAST DECADE, alternative medical therapies have played an increasingly prominent
role in American health care. In the nation’s grocery stores, homeopathic treatments and over-thecounter

coffers, hospitals advertise—even celebrate—the inclusion of nontraditional medical practices.

Most wood furniture manufacturing facilities exhaust their emissions directly to the outside of the
facility without any treatment. Therefore, in addition to possible occupational exposure to
VHAPs, persons living in close proximity to the plant might also be exposed to air toxic emissions
from the facility. Chemicals enter the body via three primary routes: inhalation, ingestion or direct
contact with the skin. In the work environment of a wood finishing line, the primary exposure
route to VHAPs is inhalation.
Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) is a phrase used to
