The Alternative Medicine Handbook

The Alternative Medicine Handbook:
The Complete Reference Guide to
Alternative and Complementary Therapies
by Barrie Cassileth
Hardcover (1998)

An estimated 60 million Americans use alternative therapies each year. Cassileth, affiliated with the National Institutes of Health Office of Alternative Medicine, the American Cancer Society, and two medical schools, offers a survey of 54 therapies from a decidedly conservative, mainstream medical point of view.   Though claiming that her book "neither promotes nor opposes" any therapy, she clearly has not made the paradigm shift necessary to understand the bases of much of this vast array of approaches, particularly alternative anticancer therapies or those originating in other cultures.
