A clinical foundation textbook to help practitioners integrate the naturopathic perspective with conventional western medicine

Clinical Naturopathic Medicine is designed to assist with the incorporation of holistic traditional principles of naturopathy with the scientific justification of evidence-based medicine.

Systems oriented rather than disease oriented, this helpful handbook places a naturopathic focus on all body systems - from the gastrointestinal to the musculoskeletal and the male and female reproductive systems.

This expertly written medical textbook is logically arranged for readers to quickly locate similar information about a body system or medical condition within any given chapter.

Each condition is assessed from both a macro and micro perspective to encompass true naturopathic philosophy. It is then integrated into a concise discussion of treatment objectives and therapeutic considerations, with case studies to support recommendations.

Through clear, accessible directions, Clinical Naturopathic Medicine outlines ways in which health professionals can apply naturopathic medicine to the individual treatment of patients.


Key Features
· discusses the historical perspective, current position and future directions for naturopathic medicine within Australia's health care system
· reflects on the scope and skill of the main modalities used - herbal medicine and nutritional medicine
· naturopathic treatments provide readers with a solid understanding of the major therapeutic modalities to use within naturopathic medicine
· each system is reviewed from a naturopathic philosophical perspective and is then considered within mainstream medicine to correlate the variations and synergies of treatment viewpoints
· continues the theme of bridging traditional practice with evidence-based medicine to support confident practitioners within the current health care system
