In today's world, living a balanced life seems more difficult than ever. While most texts promote one therapy or minimize the role of conventional medicine, the recently published Invitation to Holistic Health: A Guide to Living a Balanced Life, Fourth Edition by Charlotte Eliopoulos offers a survey of all major contemporary and alternative therapies and demonstrates how to integrate them with allopathic approaches.
Written by a nurse and focused on practicing nurses, the text provides evidence-based information on practices that promote optimal health and well-being for the body, mind, and spirit. Easy-to-use and far-ranging in scope, it offers solid principles and proven practices in the fields of nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, supplements, Chinese medicine, energy therapies, aromatherapy, and herbal and homeopathic remedies. Topics include lifestyle balance, recovery from addictions, wise use of medications, living fully with chronic conditions, and the role of spirituality in health.
