In Health and Healing
, Harvard-trained physician Andrew Weil explores the full spectrum of alternative healing practices available today, including holistic medicine, homeopathy, osteopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, Chinese medicine, Shamanism, mind cures, faith healing, psychic healing, and outright quackery.
