Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Epilepsy Hardback
Epilepsy is a difficult illness to control; up to 35% of patients do not respond fully to traditional medical treatments.
For this reason, many sufferers choose to rely on or incorporate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into their treatment regimens.
Written for Physicians, knowledgeable laypersons and other professionals, Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Epilepsy bridges the worlds of traditional medicine and CAM to foster a broader perspective of healthcare for patients.The book respects cultural differences that may incorporate alternative medicine into a medical management programme, and encourages patients to safely continue receiving necessary medical treatments.
Wherever possible, scientific evidence supports the choice of treatment modalities, as well as the effectiveness of a combined traditional and CAM approach.
