Book Description Harper, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A half century ago, acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, Chinese herbs, Christian exorcisms, dietary supplements, chiropractic manipulations, and ayurvedic remedies were considered on the fringe of medicine. Now these practices--known variably as alternative, complementary, holistic, or integrative medicine--have become mainstream, used by half of all Americans today to treat a variety of conditions, from excess weight to cancer.But alternative medicine is an unregulated industry under no legal obligation to prove its claims or admit its risks, and many popular alternative therapies are ineffective, expensive, or even deadly. In Do You Believe in Magic? Dr. Offit debunks the treatments that don t work and tells us why, and takes on the media celebrities who promote alternative medicine. Using dramatic real-life stories, he separates the sense from the nonsense, explaining why any therapy--alternative or traditional--should be scrutinized. As Dr. Offit explains, some popular therapies are remarkably helpful due to the placebo response, but there s no such thing as alternative medicine. There s only medicine that works and medicine that doesn t. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780062222985

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In Do You Believe in Magic?, medical expert Paul A. Offit, M.D., offers a scathing expos of the alternative medicine industry, revealing how even though some popular therapies are remarkably helpful due to the placebo response, many of them are ineffective, expensive, and even deadly. Dr. Offit reveals how alternative medicinean unregulated industry under no legal obligation to prove its claims or admit its riskscan actually be harmful to our health. Using dramatic real-life stories, Offit separates the sense from the nonsense, showing why any therapyalternative or traditionalshould be scrutinized. He also shows how some nontraditional methods can do a great deal of good, in some cases exceeding therapies offered by conventional practitioners. An outspoken advocate for science-based health advocacy who is not afraid to take on media celebrities who promote alternative practices, Dr. Offit advises, "There's no such thing as alternative medicine. There's only medicine that works and medicine that doesn't.". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0062222988
