Robert S. Ivker, D.O., is an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Family Medicine and a clinical instructor in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, and past president of the American Holistic Medical Association.From Publishers Weekly:
This dense volume attempts to provide a comprehensive picture of holistic alternativesAwhich include some of the world's oldest and most subtle medical traditionsAas well as a review of major physical complaints. Ivker (Sinus Survival), Anderson (Stress Power!) and Trivieri, a journalist with a specialty in holistic medicine, open with a sweeping definition of good health, in which they include such advantages as financial well-being. They provide a whirlwind tour of ideas for healing body, mind and spirit, including prayer, sex, laughter, meditation and affirmations. The bulk of the book consists of individual summaries of both conventional and holistic treatment options for common problems, from acne to diabetes. In their attempts to cover such vast territory, the authors are forced to give important issues short shrift. Cancer, for instance, receives only 18 pages; explanations of key alternative therapies from chiropractic to Ayurveda are relegated to the appendix and handled in one paragraph each. The book is carefully and intelligently written and serves well as a useful brief reference. However, its broad scope may force readers needing help with complex health issues to seek out more specialized volumes. (Oct.)
