Description

Quick Access is an information database developed by Integrative Medicine Communications to allow health professionals from various educational and philosophical backgrounds access to a complete picture of the different approaches used to maintain health, treat disease or manage conditions. By bringing together many specialists, including pharmacists, doctors, nutritionists, herbalists and naturopaths, Quick Access has developed into an accurate, practical, essential and fully referenced database providing monographs on conditions, herbs and dietary supplements. For the first time this information is being made available in a user-friendly format aimed directly at the general public. Quick Access Consumer Guide to Conditions, Herbs & Supplements offers authoritative, concise and readable information that makes sense of the most popular dietary supplements on the market. The book has three broad categories that allow quick answers to your questions: Conditions - learn about a condition's signs and symptoms, what causes and what to expect from the doctor. This is followed by a number of treatment options including drugs, nutrition and the use of complementary therapies. Only those complementary therapies considered safe and that work well with conventional care have been included. As a result, herbs and dietary supplements receive a relatively large share of coverage. Herbs - this section gives the best evidence to support the use of herbs in maintaining health or in treating conditions. You are able to search for a particular herb, using this section first, or look here for more information on an herb, having seen it listed under treatment options for a particular condition. Supplements - this section offers substantive information on the use of dietary supplements in maintaining health or in managing conditions.show more
