Boca Raton, FL - Medicial  professionals continue to practice traditional allopathic medicine, the public has turned toward nutritional and integrative medicine therapies, especially for addressing the proliferation of chronic diseasaes. Physicians, clinicians medical students, insurance companies, as well as our government policymakers can benefit from this informative text, written by leaders in the academic and scientific world, that will help them undersrtand and navigate the various modalities that are available usually at low cost to help restore health.

In this manner, it connects the integrative model and the nutritional model with our traditional understanding of health. 

This book, written by eminent scientists at the forefront of their respective fields with a deep knowledge of their respective disciplines, provides an excellent reference. It is full of practical insights along with research to support the book's information. Physicians, clinicians, medical students, insurance companies, as well as our government policymakers can benefit from this informative text, written by leaders in the academic and scientific world, that will help them understand and navigate the various modalities that are available usually at low cost to help restore health. 

I realized long ago that standard medical care did not have all the answers. There were many times that I found myself unable to help chronically ill patients. Over the years of my practice, chronic illness and the toll it has taken on the population of the United States and the rest of the world, the cost of care, the burden on the caregivers has only continued to increase., says Bakhru, who has been practicing medicine for over 25 years. The financial ramifications, for the industry, government, society, and families are unsustainable in the long term. We can kick the can down the road only for so long. Amazingly, the answers are available but in separate pieces., Among them, as Bakhru describes in the book, are the ancient healing sciences of Ayurveda, yoga, Chinese Medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, plant essential oils, the use of light and sound in healing, mind-body medicine, the detrimental effects of toxins and electromagnetic/microwave frequencies on the human body. 

This is Bakhru's first reference about integrative medicine. She also published various articles in her local newspapers as well as appeared on public television in White Plains, and radio talk shows for WKIP and WVKR 91.3 FM out of Vassar College.
