Judith Sachs is a leading medical researcher and writer who has authored 30 previous works, including The Anxious Parent and The Healing Power of Sex. She conducts workshops on preventative health care, sexuality and mid-life change for universities, holistic health centres and corporations.From Library Journal:
Sachs (The Healing Power of Sex, LJ 11/15/94) here turns her attention to alternative therapies for emotional and psychological disorders. The result is a wide-ranging resource guide written in a personal, nontechnical style and using testimonials from satisfied patients to reinforce points. What sets it apart is its concentration on natural treatments to combat conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress. Conventional practitioners may question Sachs's use of terms like the blues or a broken heart, but despite the deliberately naive terminology, the analyses are clear and sound, based on current homeopathic and medical thinking. Sachs offers a list of recognized authors and of national support organizations but also counsels readers to seek professional advice for chronic difficulties. The dictionary-like arrangement and readable style will make this book popular with most patrons, and it will also be useful for larger reference collections.?Elizabeth Braaksma, Thunder Bay P.L., Ontario
