Until recently, complementary medical knowledge has generally been treated as 'marginal' or 'heterodox' knowledge. However, the rise of complementary medicine within health-care systems has signalled the end of its marginal status. With this have come concerns about how knowledge is generated within complementary therapies; what kind of authority can be accorded to such knowledge; the nature of research agendas; what ideas and skills are central to training and how they are transmitted. This book examines these concerns in relation to a range of healing practices: acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic, reflexology, Chi Kung, herbalism and osteopathy. The contributors to bring sociological, anthropological and practitioner perspectives to the growing debate about the future of complementary medicine.

Bring your body into balance with over 100 healing recipes for a modern Ayurvedic lifestyle. The ancient science of Ayurveda teaches that food is divine medicine with the power to heal--but the best foods for one person may not be beneficial to another. Unlike many diets with rigid, one-size-fits-all guidelines, Ayurveda is a lifestyle that recognizes the ever-changing needs of each individual. Join author Sahara Rose on a journey to wellness and discover how to eat according to your body's specific needs. Identify your Dosha, or mind-body type, and find out what foods are best for your body. Learn how changes in season and climate affect your digestion and how to adjust what you eat accordingly. Rather than focusing on calories, you'll focus on food qualities. Rather than focusing on macronutrients, you'll focus on tastes--and you'll feel better than ever. Fall in love with cooking as you explore more than 100 plant-based, gluten- and dairy-free recipes for every meal of the day, including contemporary twists on classic Ayurvedic cuisine, such as turmeric-ginger kitchari and gut-healing seaweed broth. Packed with practical guidance and beautiful photography, Eat Feel Fresh integrates traditional Ayurvedic wisdom with contemporary nutritional science, and invites you to change your relationship with food and connect with your highest self. "Sahara Rose is a millennial thought-leader who is taking the torch of Ayurveda and burning it brightly. This is the second book of hers I have had the pleasure to introduce and an example of her dedication to modernizing Ayurveda so its wisdom can transcend time. Let it inspire you to make food choices that serve not only your body, but also your spirit." --Deepak Chopra, MD "Eat Feel Fresh provides a much-needed plant-based solution to Ayurvedic nutrition that the world has been waiting for." --Mark Hyman, MD New York Times best-selling author "Sahara Rose brings the perfect combination of intelligence and accessibility to her new book, Eat Feel Fresh. Her recipes are more than just food, they offer insight into healing and inspiration to live a healthier, fuller life." --Kino MacGregor, Ashtanga Yogi and author "Eat Feel Fresh provides a wealth of knowledge about the Ayurvedic way of cooking.

This book offers healing modalities for the body, mind and spirit in an age in which our personal resources are so over-spent that we need reliable ways to replenish them. The authors show that "Rosavin," or Rhodiola Rosea, is almost a candidate for the "Panacea" (heal-all) of the ancient Greeks, or the Golden Pill of Immortality of the Chinese sages. How can a heretofore little-known plant-substance do all these things? You will have to read the book to find out how adaptogens really fills in the gaps in our physical and energetic functioning. In our challenging world and time, we need all the help we can get to cope with the stresses that come our way every day. This book shows us that if you neglect to try Rosavin, you may be missing a really important ally!
Employing sources as far-ranging as Greek mythology, ethnobotany, and the hidden monographs of Russian cold-war scientists, as well as responsible modern medical research, Dr.s Brown and Gerbarg have written a tour-de-force of a book on the healing plant Rhodiola Rosea. The reader is not only carried along effortlessly and elegantly through Brown and Gerbarg's accessible prose, but led to the inescapable conviction that this adaptogenic herb definitely enhances quality of life! In fact, after reading it, you probably won't want to wait to try Rhodiola-for everything from chronic fatigue to depression, to enhanced immune response, to generic revitalization in a sometimes tiresome world, to optimal performance (as demonstrated by the studies on astronauts and elite athletes.)
