  • Alternative Dictionary Of Symptoms And Cures

  • Increased health awareness means that more and more people are now looking for alternatives to the treatments offered by conventional medicine.

    In The Alternative Dictionary of Symptoms and Cures, Dr Caroline Shreeve describes and defines, in clear layman's terms, a wide range of disorders and their possible treaments, both orthodox and alternative. The way in which alternative therapists work and the philosophy underlying the therapies are clearly explained and the opportunities for combining alternative and conventional medicine are also examined, allowing the reader to make informed healthcare decisions.

    Easy to use with an A-Z of symptoms and conditions and cross-referenced sections on disorders and therapies, The Alternative Dictionary of Symptoms and Cures offers invaluable information and advice for when you or your family are ill.

Dr Caroline Shreeve qualified as a doctor at St Mary's Paddington, and practised for ten years in London and the Transkei. Her writing career began as assistant editor of Medicine and medical copy writer and consultant to the advertising agency of J. Walter Thompson. Dr Shreeve has written many articles on conventional and alternative approaches to medical problems and her books include The Premenstrual Syndrome - The Curse that Can be Cured, Depression and Overcoming the Menopause Naturally. Once a staunch supporter of orthodox medicine, her interest in alternatives was stimulated by her husband, a hypnotherapist (with whom she wrote The Healing Power of Hypnotism), and she now has a strong interest in promoting understanding between the two approaches to healing.
