Although there is an abundance of material available on various aspects of alternative medicine, there is no one source to which a user can turn for information on publications, organizations, educational and treatment programs, and products. Information on these resources is scattered, incomplete, and often of questionable authority. With respect to books and journals, users face a vast number of materials on these subjects which vary widely in quality, appropriateness, authority, and readability. This book contains information on resources and publications in the general field of alternative medicine and thirty-two specific modalities. It is organized into two main sections: a resource guide provides reference information on the specific services and products available to both the lay and professional audience by organization and company. Appendixes include a directory of publishers and a general index. Includes a bibliography. An essential reference for public as well as medical libraries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...provides information about, and referral to, sources of alternative medicine, which librarians are increasingly called upon to supply...all entries include an address and a phone number, which were checked for this work...an appendix of publishers and a good index complete the work...for librarians needing basic information or sources for referral on alternatice medicine, this book will serve very well. I recommend it highly, especially for public libraries, as well as health science libraries. * Reference and User Services Quarterly *
The gratifying element of this work is its success in clearing misconcptions about the numerous ways to maintain good health. There is no preaching, no judgment, no disdain for conventional medecine. This is a primary guide that will benefit and appease those curious and adventurous enough to take on the responsibility of their own health. As the title says, it is alternative medecine. * American Reference Books Annual *
...collection management librarians in public and health science settings will welcome this compendium of print resources... * Library Journal *
Anyone who wants to locate published and other sources of authoritative information on acupuncture, herbal medicine, naturopathy, osteopathy...and other alternative treatments would do well to start the investigation in this informative resource guide's pages. * Rettig On Reference *

...well-researched...an excellent basic listing...recommended... contains valuable information that has not been collected elsewhere, and will be an essential tool for research in the area of alternative and complementary medecine. * Medical Reference Services Quarterly *
A valuable addition to the literature, this source touches on high-profile material. * CHOICE *
