Stay on the cutting edge of today’s most promising trends in complementary and alternative medical treatments with Dr. David Rakel’s Integrative Medicine, 4th Edition. Written by physicians who are experts in both traditional and integrative medicine, this highly regarded, evidence-based reference covers therapies such as botanicals, supplements, mind-body, lifestyle choices, nutrition, exercise, spirituality, and more. Integrative Medicine, 4th Edition uses a clinical, disease-oriented approach, offering practical guidance for reducing costs and improving patient care.


"This is a comprehensive reference that should be useful to medical physicians and other healthcare providers who are considering the use of nonpharmacological therapies for their patients with a wide range of health problems. Due to the expanding interest in the field of integrative medicine among both patients and healthcare providers, this update with 15 new chapters is timely and warranted." Reviewed by Charles E.
