HASH(0x8db27984) out of 5 stars Finally, a comprehensive resource guide! 16 Oct. 2008
By Aaron L. Krivitzky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a new student to the holistic/alternative health field, I found this book extremely helpful in finding out what opportunities are available to me for a career in integrative heath care. This book also contains invaluable knowledge about the ins and outs of a holistic practice, both at a legalistic and personal level. The book starts addressing one's first considerations when choosing a school (in nearly every healing modality imaginable), and follows the user through to post-doc and post-grad programs available to enrich an already established practitioner. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about starting their own holistic practice, practitioners who are looking to network within their field, and anyone curious about pursuing a holistic healing art in a professional or nonprofessional capacity.

This book reflects an important symbol of change within older medical paradigm; integrative medicine is the way of the future, and the A-Z Healing Arts Guide is right on the forefront of that change. Finally, a much needed comprehensive guide to an emerging medical field. Thanks for writing this!

HASH(0x8db279fc) out of 5 stars An excellent source if pursuing a career in integrative medicine 25 May 2010
By W. Gaoiran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a first year nursing student, this book has answered a lot of questions I had regarding the field of integrative medicine. I plan to pursue a career in Holistic Nursing and to excel in this field one should be knowledgeable in the different disciplines and therapies that are currently available. If anyone plans to pursue this avenue of medicine and needs a practical and concise source of information, this is an excellent book.

HASH(0x93f00264) out of 5 stars comprehensive and very valuable guide 18 Oct. 2008
By Arnold Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a unique and valuable reference source that is a one-stop guide to careers in the alternative medicine universe. What I particularly found useful and interesting is the extensive background information and history of each of the many healing areas covered. The listings seem to be very thorough, with lots of helpful sections for people thinking about a career (or even really just wanting to learn about the background) in these practises. I haven't found anything like it in researching the range and scope of educational options. In sum, it's a commendable addition to the public's introduction to training possibilities in integrative medicine and a great place to start (and maybe finish) any search for the learning possibilities in alternative healing. Top marks.

HASH(0x8e01d624) out of 5 stars Educational Opportunities in Integrative Medicine 15 Nov. 2008
By M. Balczuk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This education guide serves as a great resource when considering alternative health care. The book presents the history and a clear description of each method and modality. It is reassuring to see what the educational requirements are for your new practitioner before you put your body and mind in their care!

HASH(0x8db291a4) out of 5 stars Regarding Naturopathy's Science-Ejected Vitalism Premise, 2008: 26 Oct. 2008
By Robert J. Cullen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book -- co-authored by Bastyr ND Nathen Gabriel (2000 grad.) -- is an excellent example of naturopathy's 'purposeful life spirit' / 'vital force spirit' sectarian premise.

And I quote, from the naturopathy chapter:

"naturopathic medicine is an integrative and vitalistic medical system [...] there are seven principles of modern naturopathy [...#2] respect the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae). There is an innate healing force within all life that is always attempting to prevent and/or heal every possible illness [...a] 'life force' [...] naturopaths help their patients to optimize this innate force [p.119...] most medical systems in place before the rise of modern western medicine [...] were 'vitalistic' in nature, meaning that a spiritual 'vital force' or 'life force' was believed to be both the source of existence and the essential healing force for every person. Ayurveda's 'prana,' Chinese medicine's 'chi,' and Hippocrates' 'humours' are all versions of the vital force [p.120]."

I highly recommend this chapter for anyone interested the the central article of faith of in this form of sectarian medicine.
