  • Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)1 is now a major part of the healthcare system in all advanced societies.2 It is also a common part of discourse in medicine and healthcare. This growth of interest has only partially been matched by academic study of it. Indeed, over recent years there has been an increasing recognition that CAM is essentially under-researched (House of Lords 2000).

  • In defining a new paradigm it is difficult to know where to begin. How do you take fifteen years of medical practice in pathology and ten years of clinical observation utilizing the theories of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and therapeutic nutrition and meld them into a model of biological understanding and medical practice? The answer is actually quite simple — start from the beginning and build a convincing model based upon sound physics, physiology, pathology, and clinical medicine and see if the model fits the expected outcome.

  • I’ve spent the last 28 years studying, practicing, teaching, and evolving as a naturopathic physician. Two themes have been consistent: natural medicine and the health care of women. Alternative medicine has come to be the popular term used to distinguish natural, noninvasive therapies from conventional medicine.

  • Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health is being published at an interesting time and speaks simultaneously to a number of converging constituencies. It is a time of growing stress on both the medical system and the patient. Medical care is in crisis with large numbers of underinsured or uninsured patients needing care. Costs are rising from the practice of increasingly technical medicine while patients complain of the decreasing time and attention they are receiving from their medical providers. Further, the burden of chronic disease is growing in an aging population.

  • Alternative medicine is a term that causes confusion for most people. What is alternative medicine? How does it compare with conventional medicine? What is integrative medicine? Is integrative medicine the same as alternative medicine? How does alternative medicine compare with holistic health? What do all of these practices have in common, and what are their differences? Do they work? Are they safe? The reason most consumers choose to explore alternative approaches to healing is a very simple one: what they’re currently doing isn’t working.

  • “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” a phrase taken directly from the Declaration of Independence, indicates the basic values identified by the founders of our nation. Of the three, life is the most fundamental as without it, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are meaningless. Health, of course, is the underpinning of life and therefore, it is puzzling that there is so little general demand for an explicit public emphasis on nourishing health as a personal and social resource.

  • Falconers, from China through Central Asia down into the Middle East, up across Europe and on to the Americas, awake daily to begin a time honored management routine to prepare their birds for the field. The origins of the steps each falconer takes daily are often steeped in tradition, gleaned from experiences through centuries, learned from the falconers who preceded us.

  • Shortly before I began research for this book on alternative and complementary medicine, I informed a dear friend of the pending task. His first comment was “How many volumes?” Those three words would haunt me throughout the project. One book hardly scratches the surface; therefore my objectives were to compile up-to-date information on and explanations of as many alternative, complementary, or integrative healing methods as possible and to present them in an unbiased and accessible A-to-Z format.

  • The field of Pain Medicine has evolved over the last 20 years to include an increasing array of sophisticated and technologically complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Concurrent to this advancement has been the development of a battery of pharmacological options to treat pain, from extended-release formulations of analgesics to antidepressants and anticonvulsants designed to treat specific types of pain syndromes.

  • What is alternative medicine? Attempts to define what is conventional and what is not conventional introduce a bias, no matter who the arbiter is who sets up the definitions (Table 1). Many alternative therapies pre-date conventional medicine by hundreds or thousands of years. Some are quite well known, others seem mysterious or strange, and some pose serious risks (Murray and Rubel 1992). Many of us use unconventional therapies acquired from grandparents, parents, or friends (chicken soup is perhaps the most famous) in our personal lives without a second thought.

  • Diagnostic Hypothesis Generation Cognitive scientists studying the thought processes of expert clinicians have observed that clinicians group data into packets, or "chunks," which are stored in their memories and manipulated to generate diagnostic hypotheses. Because short-term memory can typically hold only 7–10 items at a time, the number of packets that can be actively integrated into hypothesis-generating activities is similarly limited.

  • Evidence-Based Medicine The "art of medicine" is traditionally defined as a practice combining medical knowledge (including scientific evidence), intuition, and judgment in the care of patients (Chap. 1). Evidence-based medicine (EBM) updates this construct by placing a much-greater emphasis on the processes by which the clinician gains knowledge of the most up-to-date and relevant clinical research. The key processes of EBM can be summarized in four steps: 1. Formulating the management question to be answered 2.

  • In the autumn of 1994, a New Yorker cartoonist imagined a clinical scene in which a patient who is literally radiant with health, his body throwing off a nearly blinding aura of wellness, is nevertheless being sternly admonished by his physician because he has achieved his health the wrong way: “You’ve been fooling around with alternative medicines, haven’t you?” the doctor scolds.1 New Yorker cartoons constitute the most sensitive of barometers to shifting currents in America’s cultural atmosphere.

  • The rise of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) – a whole array of practices, products and approaches to health and illness1 – can certainly no longer be characterised as cultural fad or fashion. Changes in the use of titles (from ‘unscientific’ and ‘marginal’ to ‘complementary’ and ‘integrative’) reflect a more substantive relocation and transformation of many of these medicines from the fringe to the mainstream of both community and professional health-care discourse and practice (Tovey et al. 2004).

  • Mitochondria evolved from a bacterial endosymbiont ancestor in which the integral outer membrane proteins would have been b-barrel structured within the plane of the membrane. Initial proteomics on the outer mem-brane from yeast mitochondria suggest that while most of the protein components are integral in the membrane, most of these mitochondrial pro-teins behave as if they have a-helical transmembrane domains, rather than b-barrels.

  • For centuries, blood has been considered to have mystical properties and has been associated with vitality. In ancient times, bathing in or drinking the blood of the strong was thought to invigorate the weak. For instance, among Ancient Romans it was customary to rush into the arena to drink the blood of dying gladiators [1]; among others, to drink or bathe in blood was thought to cure a variety of ailments [2]. Bleeding was practiced to let out bad blood and restore the balance of humors, thus hopefully returning the patient to health...
