Everything you need to incorporate complementary and alternative therapies into traditional cardiology practice

"...a milestone in the inevitable merging of the two fields."--Dr. Andrew T. Weil, MD

Comprehensive coverage includes:

  • CAM treatment modalities
  • Legal and ethical issues
  • An important overview of the mechanistic and physiologic links between CAM and the cardiovascular system
  • All categories identified by the NIH's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) study
  • Special considerations in such vital areas as women's health, obesity, aging, and end-of-life care
  • Useful appendix that provides reliable sources of further information for both physicians and patients
