This book is all about hope. From ancient healing therapies to the latest American innovations, you have more options for great health today than ever before. Complementary and alternative therapies, known as CAM, are about more than just improving your health. These therapies are about helping you rediscover the joy, the wonder and the beauty of living.
Impressively organized and presented
As the babyboom generation ages (as well as generations X, Y & Z, for that matter), personal health and physical fitness have become more than just fashionable -- they are recognized as fundamental to being able to enjoy life, pursue goals, and live longer. The rise in the popularity of what is described as Alternative Medicine has also taken place because of the shortcomings of traditional medicine to insure continued good health and/or speedy recovery from illness or injury. In "Unbreak Your Health: The Complete Guide To Complementary & Alternative Therapies", Alan E. Smith has compiled more than 300 entries on more than 135 alternative health subjects, providing both students of alternative medicine and non-specialist general readers with an interest in alternatives to what traditional medicine has to offer them with respect to basic health concepts. Impressively organized and presented with an alphabetized roster of therapies for the body, a section devoted to therapies for the mind; and an entire chapter of therapies applicable to the human 'spirit' or 'energy', "Unbreak Your Health" is thoroughly 'reader friendly' and accessible. Of special note are the chapters on Insurance, Alan Smith's conclusions, his recommendations, the resources list, bibliography for further reading, and a comprehensive index. "Unbreak Your Health" is very strongly recommended and fundamentally useful reading for students of Alternative Medicine, and would prove a popular addition to community library Health & Medicine reference collections.
Midwest Book Reviews
Most comprehensive and reader-friendly guide for alternative health solutions that I have ever read.
"UnBreak Your Health is the most comprehensive and reader-friendly guide for alternative health solutions that I have ever read. The author, Alan E. Smith, through personal experience presents a compelling argument for the power of our bodies to heal themselves if we would give them the opportunity. However, Smith is not an opponent of conventional medicine, and states that this book is meant to give hope and options to complement healing therapies.
The reader-friendly format of the book provides an introduction to alternative therapies, the best way to use this book and chapters on overall health concepts and working with the body, mind and spirit. Topics include acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, osteopathy and environmental medicine. Other therapies covered are mind-body therapies, manual healing therapies and herbal remedies. The methods listed in this book include therapies that have been around for thousands of years to life-changing new devices.
I was amazed at the number of alternative therapies that are available to a person. Our technology-based culture can learn so much from the cultures of ancient lineage around the world following time-honored systems. The Western approach often fails to treat the whole patient - mind, body, emotions and spirit, and treats the symptoms instead of finding the root of the problem. Additionally the author has included user comments throughout the book that are testimonials of healing from people who have given up on conventional medicine. I recognized several of the therapies and was pleasantly surprised to see the Network Spinal Analysis included, a chiropractic technique that uses specific touches to heal. I was introduced to this technique several years ago and was able to avoid surgery by using it. I was also really glad to see the Radical Forgiveness Technology listed, an amazing technology that I started using several months ago.
UnBreak Your Health would complement any home-based or business library. I applaud the author for creating such a comprehensive guide."
Cherie Fisher for Reader Views
"Unbreak Your Health has a great concept going for it. Alternative health techniques have flooded the market in recent years, and their sheer variety overwhelms most people. It's a laudable goal of Smith's to explain these many practices, which he does clearly and concisely. Smith also covers an amazing number of therapies in a mere 212 pages. An extensive appendix of Web sites provides further avenues for research."
