Nutrition-based therapies are consistently among the highest used alternative therapies to treat a wide variety of illnesses. This book provides consumers and health care professionals with practical guidance on integrating nutrition therapies into disease prevention and management. It provides reliable and accurate information from experts in the nutrition field including dietitians, nutritionists, physicians, researchers, and academic professionals. Integrative Nutrition Therapy includes up-to-date information on dietary supplements, popular diets, physical activity, and food allergies. The book covers disease prevention for cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Additional topics include liver/pancreatic conditions and musculoskeletal disorders as well as nutrigenomics, epigenetics, and metabolomics. The book provides evidence-based recommendations for which therapies might be appropriate for various conditions and discusses the possible adverse effects that may develop. It also includes guidelines and suggestions for creating individualized, integrative care plans. Integrative Nutrition Therapy is organized in a systematic manner that presents the scientific data using an evidence-based, how-to approach. An overview of integrative medicine is written by Dr. Roberta Lee, a leading authority in the field. Award-winning nutrition experts provide practical knowledge for the integrative practitioner, covering topics such as: Nutrition screening and assessment Search for the optimum diet Functional foods and nutritional supplements Nutritional recommendations for women's health Health benefits of physical activity Diet and mental health Although unanswered questions still exist, this resource gives you a much-needed guide to the information currently available on nutrition and lifestyle-based therapies.
Consumers look to health professionals for guidance on how to integrate complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies into their lifestyles, yet most health care professionals are trained only in conventional practices. Integrating Therapeutic and Complementary Nutrition provides the scientific foundation necessary to understand CAM nutrition practices and how they are being integrated into conventional care. Working within a framework that examines complementary and alternative therapies alongside conventional nutrition practice, the authors examine controversial issues surrounding CAM practice. Integrating Therapeutic and Complementary Nutrition replaces popular myths with fact based and verifiable information from nutritionists, professors, researchers, and industry professionals. Each chapter describes in detail the underlying process involved in both healthy function and dysfunction of each organ system and disease state to provide the necessary background for the comparison, contrast, and conjunction of conventional and alternative therapy. Paying particular attention to determining which therapies might be appropriate for which conditions, including which supplements, in what amounts and from which manufacturers, this book uses scientific data, considered opinions and case studies to weed out the beneficial from the harmful. While aware that there unanswered questions exist, the editors provide a much needed reference to the information currently available, clearing the confusion between what is known and what is not; what is proven and what is, though well-intentioned, just wishful thinking.
