    Principles of Holistic and Integrative Methods for Treating and Preventing Diabetes Leslie E. Korn, PhD, MPH and Rudolph C. Ryser, PhD have collaborated in this informative approach to integrating traditional medicine with complementary/alternative medicine, and integrative medicine. The authors include a comprehensive discussion with practical guidelines for improving nutrition and diet as they relate to diabetes and its effect on functions of neuropathy, cardiovascular illness, stress, trauma, pain, and depression. The opening chapters deal with the culture and principles of traditional healing and diabetes and nutritional supplements and healing routines. The material dealing with medicinal foods and plant medicines identifies the relationships between plants and their use as medicines. The practical discussion and hands-on how to steps on energy medicine and polarity therapy protocol was extremely interesting. The accompanying photographs and detailed descriptions are an excellent... More > source for personal application and for anyone involved in polarity therapy. Worksheets provided with each chapter include objectives of the chapter and suggested exercises for implementation, application and assimilation. I found these helpful. They are easily adaptable to a support group or for use in a classroom situation. The glossary, compete index, comprehensive references and resource list add to the value of the book as a tool for review and further reading and future study. As Reviewed for Amazon< Less

    "An excellent tool for students, professionals, caretakers, and those battling diabetes. This book fills a void for addressing the natural and preventative measures of the illness. The writers have interwoven the components of botanicals, nutrition, lifestyle, and culture. I recommend this book not only to those currently treating diabetes, but also to the rising generation of health care students and professionals. These insights can be in turn applied to a whole host of medical issues. Wonderfully informative and I look forward to future works by the authors."

    I thought this book was great. I walked away from it feeling very informed and empowering about diabetes and hope I can help myself, my family and my community prevent and deal with this disease. What I really liked was how the authors talked about all dimensions of diabetes prevention/treatment. They discuss prescription medicine, herbal medicine and nutrition. The chapter on authentic foods and traditions was my favorite. There's even a chapter on energy and polarity therapy. There's an entire section on community-wide strategies for action, which I found to be very enlightening. It helped me understand the connections between the individual and community and diabetes and out lifestyles. I like the attention the authors draw to stress and trauma, which is often left out of most literature on the subject. There's a lot of information for people who are taking care of a diabetic family member as well. They give such a well-rounded and comprehensive view of diabetes and how to deal... More > with it. I recommend it for anyone who is suffering from the disease or is caring for someone who is.< Less
