Integrative Approaches for Health Book Review:

Despite spectacular advances, modern medicine faces formidable global challenges in several key areas—notably the persistence of major killer diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, leprosy, and newer threats including HIV/AIDS, resistant infections, and Ebola. As such, modern medicine has not led to a significant decrease in chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, and other degenerative and autoimmune diseases. The authors believe that modern medicine needs to experience a paradigm shift, an integration of traditions—in particular from the ancient systems like Ayurveda and Yoga. Integrative Approaches for Health: Biomedical Research, Ayurveda and Yoga brings together the basic principles of interdisciplinary systems approach for an evolving construct of future medicine. Such an approach is already emerging at the cutting edge of current research in omics, bioinformatics, computational and systems biology. Several leading institutions of medicine have adopted Yoga and complementary medicine to widen their reach, and deepen effectiveness in therapeutic practices. The amalgam of modern medicine, with its strengths in scientific rigor, blended with the basic principles of life drawn from Ayurveda and Yoga might evolve into a medicine of tomorrow. Integrative approaches are no longer alternative, perhaps taking these approaches is the only possible way to heal our sick planet. This book introduces important trends and tools for biomedical researchers and physicians alike, to innovate the practice of medicine for the better. Contains a harmonious confluence of ancient and modern concepts, historical perspectives, philosophical underpinnings, and a relevant review of literature supported by worldwide case studies. Provides a critical analysis of ancient wisdom, pointing to potential areas for future research, which provide food for thought for public debate on integrative health care for the twenty-first century. Explains Ayurveda knowledge, and its relevance to drug discovery, nutrition, genomics, epigenetics, regenerative biology, longevity and personalized medicine. Shares Yoga knowledge insights, and explains its relevance to body–mind complex relationships, psychology, neurobiology, immunoendocrinology, bioenergetics, consciousness, and cognitive sciences. Offers illustrations and logic diagrams for enhanced understanding of the concepts presented.

Integrative Men s Health Book Review:

As a field, men's health is far behind women's health in terms of the availability of reliable, scientifically based information that men, their partners, and health care providers can rely on when seeking information and treatment. Moreover, integrative approaches are becoming more popular with men whose healthcare providers understand that most of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in men, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, urologic disease, and sexual dysfunction, can be ameliorated using an integrative approach, with more emphasis on the patient-provider relationship, lifestyle change, and the use of proven complementary modalities. Integrative Men's Health provides an evidence-based perspective on the health problems that affect men and the ways in which such problems may be prevented or treated utilizing a broad armamentarium of approaches - from conventional tools to complementary modalities. All chapters take into consideration of all the factors that influence men's health including body, mind, and spirit in a way that neither rejects alternative approaches nor accepts any of them uncritically.

Textbook of Integrative Mental Health Care Book Review:

Dr. Lake has made a significant contribution to integrative medicine in this book by helping to weave the integral tapestry around the complex issues of mental illness. In honor of his efforts to restore healing and meaning to mental healthcare, I bow deeply. --From the foreword by Larry Dossey, MD Dr. James Lake once again illumines the path to future medicine in this comprehensive, carefully researched, and intellectually engaging exploration of clinical integration of complementary and conventional therapies in mental health care. In a rigorous, dispassionate analysis he both reveals the outer frontiers of medical possibility and describes the professional boundaries necessary to reach such frontiers in ways that are clinically responsible as well as ethically unassailable. --Michael H. Cohen, JD, MBA, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Assistant Professor, Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public HealthDr. Lake has written the defining textbook for evidence-based integrative mental health care. He has comprehensively evaluated the research support for both conventional and natural therapies and redefined how we understand and treat mental health patients. His careful flow charts help guide the clinician through the challenge of assessment and differentiation to personalize therapies based on each patient's unique needs. Clinicians will also find of immense value his many tables, which summarize the evidence base for each intervention. This is a tour-de-force that forever redefines mental health care. --Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founding President, Bastyr University This text offers an evidence-based approach to incorporating integrative psychiatry into practice that is pragmatic and useful, a great addition to the field of integrative medicine. --Roberta Lee, MD, Medical Director, Continuum Center for Health and HealingDr. Lake must be congratulated for this ground-breaking work on CAM in psychiatry. It not only provides a conceptual framework for a deeper understanding of disease of the mind-body-spirit, but also gives evidence-based blueprints for where we are and where we could go. A must read for mental health professionals interested in the philosophy and practice of integrative psychiatry. --Richard P. Brown, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and SurgeonsThis text is comprehensive and authoritative, well written and widely referenced. It will, I hope, enlarge the way we think about mental health and treat psychiatric disorders. --James S. Gordon, MD, Founder and Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine This book provides a comprehensive review of integrative approaches in mental health. Here the practitioner will find clear guidance in an evidence-based manner. A wonderful contribution. --Wayne B. Jonas, MD, Director Samueli Institute for Information BiologyThis book is a tour de force in the emerging field of integrative psychiatry. The author presents the material in each chapter in a systematic, thoughtful, thorough, and practical manner. The text itself is integrative in the way it discusses management issues that a provider may encounter. As the number of patients who already include - or wish to add - alternative methods in their overall treatment plan continues to grow, this text provides an important comprehensive resource for busy providers. Health care professionals from many different disciplines who need a serious reference text on integrative psychiatry and who wish to optimize options for their patients with chronic psychiatric disorders will find this book indispensable. --Iris R. Bell, MD, PhD, Professor, Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Psychiatry, Psychology, Medicine, and Public Health, The University of Ariz

Who Global Report on Traditional and Complementary Medicine 2019 Book Review:

This report is structured in five parts: national framework for traditional and complementary medicine (T&CM); product regulation; practices and practitioners; the challenges faced by countries; and, finally, the country profiles. Apart from the section on practices and practitioners, the report is consistent with the format of the report of the first global survey in order to provide a useful comparison. The section on practices and practitioners, which covers providers, education and health insurance, is a new section incorporated to reflect the emerging trends in T&CM and to gather new information regarding these topics at a national level. All new information received has been incorporated into individual country profiles and data graphs. The report captures the three phases of progress made by Member States; that is, before and after the first WHO Traditional Medicine Strategy (1999-2005), from the first global survey to the second global survey (2005-2012) and from the second survey to the most recent timeline (2012-2018).

Traditional Medicine Book Review:

"The World Health Organization has acknowledged that the majority of people living in developing countries continue to use traditional medicine. Increased levels of immigration and migration also mean that health professionals are more likely to come into contact with patients using them. Traditional Medicine is therefore a vital and timely book which covers medical systems practised on five continents, including: traditional European folk medicine; Aboriginal/traditional medicine in North America; traditional medicine in the Colombian Amazon Tropical forest; traditional medical practice in Africa; traditional Chinese medicine; Indian Ayurvedic medicine; Japanese Kampo medicine; Korean medicine; traditional medicines in the Pacific; and traditional Jewish medicine."--Publisher's description.

The author explains the foundational principles of both Chinese medicine and Ayurveda in detail, providing the reader with a working understanding of both disciplines. She examines shared concepts such as qi and prana, meridians and nadis, and energy centers and chakras. She explores the strengths of each practice, such as the clinical efficiency of diagnosis and the use of acupuncture for pain relief, improving fertility, and stress reduction in Chinese medicine and the dietary, detoxification, and spiritual guidance of Ayurveda, including the detox branch of Ayurveda known as Panchakarma. Moving beyond theory into practical application, she explores the Elements, known as the Five Phases and the Panchamahabhutas, and how they affect our well-being. She provides tools for self-assessment including a primer on tongue diagnosis and a mental, emotional, and physical constitutional questionnaire. Offering treatment and prevention strategies that draw from both disciplines, she encourages the reader to implement an integrated practice of these two systems in daily life or clinical practice. She details breathing exercises, dietary regimens, herbal recommendations, and guides for detoxification, including safe and gentle home cleanses, all rooted in the holistic synergy between Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. Sharing case studies that highlight the interconnectedness of these approaches, Shea provides a comprehensive guide for self-healing of body, mind, and spirit and a practitioner’s resource to cross-reference complex questions with respect to both healing traditions.
