Diabetes Self-Management’s Hidden Secrets of Natural Healing is a landmark volume that summarizes, defines, explains, and details in everyday language how the solutions offered by complementary and alternative medicine can work for you.
This illustrated, easy-to-read reference is a must-have for your health library. Inside, you’ll discover how everything from Chinese herbal remedies to guided-imagery techniques are being used successfully to treat a range of health issues...including diabetes.
Some therapies once considered to be alternative or complementary are now considered conventional because they have been shown to be safe and effective. Others, however, may be ineffective or even harmful under certain circumstances. For this reason, people with diabetes are encouraged to discuss their use of any complementary or alternative therapy with their conventional health-care provider.
The more you inform and educate yourself about any alternative or complementary therapy you’d like to try, the better chance you have of avoiding the ineffective ones and making the best use of therapies that can help you attain and maintain a high degree of diabetes control.
Diabetes Self-Management’s Hidden Secrets of Natural Healing is a wide-ranging, encyclopedic overview of complementary and alternative medicine — written specifically for people with diabetes.
