Skin health has taken center stage for health care practitioners and patients alike. Not only has skin cancer quickly become the number one form of cancer in the United States, with 3.5 million cancers diagnosed in over 2 million patients annually, but concerns about sun protection and healthyaging have dominated both public media and individual patient concerns. As the largest and most visible organ, the skin displays all evidence of health and vitality, both real and perceived, thereby conferring a tremendous amount of psychological burden on those afflicted with cutaneous ailments.Clinicians are thus charged with the important task of caring for the whole person, mentally as well as physically, to achieve therapeutic success. Integrative Dermatology is the first comprehensive text in this growing field which strives to examine and combine best practices from both traditional medicine as well as complementary and alternative healing modalities such as: diet, supplements, and mind-body medicine. The book presents keyconcepts for synthesizing the best, comprehensive care plan for each individualized and contextualized dermatology patient.
