These therapies are organized alphabetically so that readers can readily pinpoint a specific treatment and learn about its origins, merits, and possible uses in MS. They will find in-depth discussions on topics that include acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic medicine, cooling therapy, yoga, diets and fatty acid supplements, the use of herbs, vitamins and minerals, and much more. With this book, readers will be able to: * find unconventional options that may provide symptomatic relief when conventional therapies are limited * learn about potentially dangerous interactions between CAM therapies and medical treatments used in the management of MS * identify CAM therapies that are possibly effective, low risk, and inexpensive * recognize ineffective, dangerous, or costly alternative therapies A section on integrating conventional and unconventional medicine links specific symptoms to potentially useful CAM therapies. This means that if readers have a particular concern, such as spasticity or bladder problems, they will be able to identify potentially useful alternative strategies. A glossary of popular supplements that are commonly used in MS care is provided.
