Description
"

The first edition of Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis quickly became the single source for accurate and unbiased information on a wide range of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches that can aid both in the management of multiple sclerosis symptoms and in promoting general health and wellness. The second edition of this authoritative book continues to offer reliable information on the relevance, safety, and effectiveness of various alternative therapies.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis, 2nd Edition is completely updated throughout, and reflects the advances in the field since the first edition's publication in 2001. There is a new chapter on low-doseNaltrexone and a pivotal section on integrating conventional and alternativemedicines.

Therapies are organized alphabetically so that readers can readily pinpoint a specific treatment and learn about its origins, merits, and possible uses in MS. They will find in-depth discussions on topics that include acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic medicine, cooling therapy, yoga, diets and fatty acid supplements, the use of herbs, vitamins and minerals, and much more.

With this book, readers will be able to:

  • Find other options that may provide symptomatic relief when conventional therapies are limited
  • Learn about potentially dangerous interactions between CAM therapies and medical treatments used in the management of MS
  • Identify CAM therapies that are effective, low risk, and inexpensive
  • Recognize ineffective, dangerous, or costly alternative therapies
