Fad-Free Nutrition

Frederick Stare
Elizabeth Whelan

Two experts show that today's biggest health problem may be the consumption of too much unreliable information about nutrition. Using up-to-date information and basing their approach on sound scientific principles and legitimate studies, the authors help the reader sort fact from fiction, and, equally important, fact from "maybe".

The Trick Is to Know the Difference

George A. Ulett

Although alternative medicine is now studied seriously in The National Institutes of Health and Harvard Medical School, questions of efficacy and practitioner motivation still cloud the topic. Alternative Medicine or Magical Healing attempts to give a balanced picture of the New Age healing movement and sorts out which treatments should be approached with caution or avoided, and which might be useful as complements to traditional medicine. Dr. Ulett was one of the first American physicians to study in China and Japan, and pioneered the use of acupuncture in this country. His long interest in holistic healing reflects an open-mindedness to other ways of treating and an interest in healing both body and spirit. Dr. Ulett is a past Director of the Missouri Department of Mental Health. He currently has a private practice in Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychiatry.
