With an easy-to-follow format, the text will help you assimilate thousands of years of healing methods into Western health care practices. You'll learn techniques for improving your patients' health as well as your own.

The 5th Edition further explores practical applications of complementary and integrative medicine, while providing new research, resources and topics of interest. It places more emphasis on strategies for incorporating alternative therapies into your nursing practice and your own life. New topics include African healing, forest bathing, health disparities, health literacy, Native American sacred land, and Precision Medicine Initiative, among others.
