Encyclopedia of Wellness: From Açaí Berry to Yo-Yo Dieting offers expert advice to anyone seeking information on a condition or illness. More than that, however, this three-volume resource is a compendium of practical information on how to reduce poor health choices and live a healthy, active, vibrant life.
A source of basic, easily understandable entries on health and wellness, the encyclopedia covers an extraordinarily broad array of health-related topics including acupuncture, art therapy, biofeedback, food additives, nutrition labels, organic foods, and workplace wellness. Bulimia is covered, as are depression, autism, cancer, and environmental hazards. Essays examine issues related to healthy living for the mind and the body, stressing the importance of the mind-body connection to good health. Information is also offered on practical concerns such as medical savings accounts, changes in medical insurance, and the U.S. health care system. Throughout, the encyclopedia presents knowledge gleaned from new research on treatment and especially on choices in nutrition and exercise.
