Aug 4, 2010Principles of Holistic and Integrative Methods for Treating and Preventing Diabetes Leslie E. Korn, PhD, MPH and Rudolph C.

Jul 1, 2010"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 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.
