From the Publisher:

An accessible guide to health, pathology and disease written for the non-medical therapist

From the Back Cover:

This book explains with a minimum of jargon how diseases start, what that main symptoms are and how they may affect us.

It is intended as a concise guide for those working in alternative medicine and also for those without a medical background who want a clearer understanding of the ways in which common illnesses develop and the terms used to describe them.

"... a major gem from a former GP and now a Devon-based practitioner of the alternatives, who has written his own handbook for the non-medical therapist.

"With a minimum of jargon but a maximum of precision, Dr Ball runs with skill and clarity through the causes of disease, giving the main symptoms and their likely effect.

"Complete with illustrations, this well-produced and admirably concise volume not only constitutes an impressive addition to the literature available but presents an invaluable guide to anyone in the alternatives, particularly those with no medical training."

Richard Thomas,

Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine
