Chiropractic and Naturopathic Mastery of Common Clinical Disorders is a clinically-oriented textbook that introduces and reviews concepts in the assessment and management of the acute and chronic disorders most common in clinical practice: hypertension, diabetes mellitus type-2, immunonutrition, immunorestoration, viral infections, dyslipidemia, musculoskeletal pain, mood disorders (especially depression and anxiety), and allergy and asthma. Patients are increasingly looking for nondrug and nonsurgical methods for the alleviation of disease and the promotion of optimal health; Chiropractic and Naturopathic Mastery of Common Clinical Disorders provides you with the fundamental information needed for the successful integrative management of the most common conditions seen in the holistic practice of integrative medicine.
