From the publisher. This is a vital and timely book that covers medical systems practised on 5 continents. The World Health Organization has acknowledged that most people living in developing countries continue to use traditional medicine. Increased levels of immigration and migration mean that health professionals are more likely to come into contact with patients who use such systems. This book is therefore a crucial resource for complementary and alternative practitioners and students worldwide and for health care providers working in a multicultural society, enabling them to interact effectively with their patients.
