This first-of-its-kind book describes the roles of conventional medicine, complementary therapies, and natural alternative therapies in the treatment of gynecological disorders. The book gives practitioners much-needed information on how complementary and alternative therapies work and how they interact with conventional medicines. The chapters are organized by disease and each includes information on etiology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, the conventional therapy (drug, procedure, etc.), complementary therapy (acupuncture, chiropractic and manipulative therapy, biofeedback, etc.), and alternative therapy (nutrition, herbal, homeopathy). The sections on complementary and alternative therapies explain what the therapies are and describe the postulated mechanisms of action.Nunez Esteban M, Sanchez Fernandez C.
