Description - Clinical Guide to Nutrition and Dietary Supplements in Disease Management by Jennifer R. Jamison
This text provides a contemporary approach to the use of lifestyle, herbal and nutritional interventions in health care. While conventional health care has long classified many nutritional and herbal remedies as folklore, there is increasing scientific evidence to support a number of "old wives tales". This title demonstrates the biological plausibility of using supplements in clinical care and supports the scientific validity of such interventions by referring to clinical trials. It provides the health professional with therapeutic protocols that can be used to manage or support other treatment regimes in promoting health, preventing and treating disease. The contents of the book are divided into three parts. The first part considers the principles of nutritional intervention. Part two lists prevalent diseases and provides a therapeutic protocol for their management. Part three lists nutrients (and some frequently used herbs) and seeks to catalogue the indications, doses, interactions and side effects that require consideration when providing safe and effective clinical care.
