Consider the Alternatives: Healthy Strategies for Later Life

by Caroline Lindsay Nash
£5.00   paperback  Third Age Press (1998)

Consider the Alternatives: Healthy Strategies for Later Life by Caroline Lindsay Nash Acupuncture, Bach Flower Remedies, Chiropractic... it's not as simple as ABC but this book offers a clear and unbiased explanation of the nature and uses of alternative therapies... what you can expect from complementary medicine... and why yoga, tai chi, pets, music and humour can contribute to your personal strategy for a healthy old age.
 
Dr Nash, from a wealth of experience, looks particularly at conditions that affect people in later life and explores a wide range of possible treatments.
 
Dr Michael Lloyd, psychologist and pain management specialist, believes that choosing one's own mental and physical responses to pain is a central element of pain management since chronic pain is a mind / body phenomenon.
 
Conventional medicine also has an important role to play, but if you are dissatisfied with your health care or just want to try something different, as pensioner Tony Carter points out, this book will help you take control of your own health.
