About the book:

Lack of insurance coverage, astronomical health care costs, and an overall drop in medical consumer confidence have led to a surge of interest in alternative approaches to traditional medicine. The perfect guide for readers looking to take control of their bodies, The Self-Health Handbook profiles 50 self-administering therapies from around the world. Each entry features a detailed description of the therapy and its applications, a history of the origin of the therapy, contraindications (if any), and equipment (if any). In most cases the therapies described in the book go beyond a simple problem-and-cure relationship; they often lead to changing one's whole way of life. The Self-Health Handbook is a vital resource for health care instructors, holistic health devotees, and frustrated health care consumers looking for alternatives. No need to search through hefty medical texts or attend far-flung health spas: The Self-Health Handbook presents the most effective therapies from the vast therapeutic spectrum, in sufficient detail not only to understand how they work but why.
