The Integrated Health Bible : Healing, Vitality and Well-Being The Ultimate Reference Guide Paperback
by Mosaraf Ali
While conventional medicine has disease as its focus, integrated medicine concentrates on the powers of the body that promote health.
Central to Dr Ali's philosophy is this concept of self-help and the fact that 80 per cent of illness can be cured without drugs.
He believes the majority of illnesses are caused by the emotional, psychological and physical strain we put ourselves under.
The Integrated Health Bible shows you how to reverse this by helping the body heal itself and to restore vitality and well-being.
This is done by following the Lifestyle Programme, which consists of a regimen of diet, exercise, yoga, relaxation and meditation. And for when things go wrong, there is a diagnosis and treatment programme for up to 40 common ailments - including asthma, back problems, infertility, migraine, sinusitis and stress - combining specific treatments (such as homeopathy, acupuncture, ayurveda), exercises and tips for each problem.

Review by wyvernfriend
An interesting look at some of the alternatives to conventional medicine. A little strident at times it still encourages a participation from the reader in their own health. Without dismissing completely conventional medicine, he does ask the question why things aren't as concerned with ensuring health instead of defeating disease and that maybe we need to deal with the symptoms before they become an issue rather than having to deal with them on a crisis level.Interesting questions and should be read by most people working in health services today for the questions it leaves behind. His tone is a little strident but he does make some very good points, he advocates moderation which is an interesting change from most authors in this field.
