About the Author:

Jane Heimlich is coauthor of Homeopathic Medicine at Home and wife of Dr. Henry Heimlich, inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver.

From Publishers Weekly:

Consumers could certainly use a solid journalistic examination of "alternative" medical therapies and their advocates. Heimlich's, unfortunately, is not that book. While justifiably deploring overmedication and unnecessary surgery, Heimlich ( Homeopathic Medicine at Home ) accepts uncritically many suggestions, so long as they do not emanate from the "establishment." The result is a melange of solid good sense (stop smoking to prevent heart disease), interesting potential (acupuncture as a treatment for sundry ailments; the mind-body connection) and much that is highly dubious and potentially dangerous, including discredited south-of-the-border cancer therapies, floral extracts, magnets and "psychic diagnosis." Typical of the author's gullibility is her failure to impute other than altruistic motives to her sources; she accepts, with no apparent awareness of conflict of interest, an "expert" opinion on vitamin megadoses from a manufacturer of such products. Her book will bolster the convictions of believers; its anecdotes, testimonials and naivete will rightly reinforce the doubts of skeptics. Heimlich is married to Henry Heimlich, the physician who devised the lifesaving Heimlich Maneuver.
