This book has been replaced in 2016 by the new edition: Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition ISBN: 0990620484; 978-0990620488 (1,180 pages in color, providing more than 20 hours of video access). Chiropractic and Naturopathic Mastery of Common Clinical Disorders is a clinically-oriented textbook that introduces and reviews concepts in the assessment and management of the acute and chronic disorders most common in clinical practice: hypertension, diabetes mellitus type-2, immunonutrition, immunorestoration, viral infections, dyslipidemia, musculoskeletal pain, mood disorders (especially depression and anxiety), and allergy and asthma. Patients are increasingly looking for nondrug and nonsurgical methods for the alleviation of disease and the promotion of optimal health; Chiropractic and Naturopathic Mastery of Common Clinical Disorders provides you with the fundamental information needed for the successful integrative management of the most common conditions seen in the holistic practice of integrative medicine. With several thousand citations to the biomedical literature and about 600 pages of clinically-oriented protocols, this book provides enough information to manage a wide range of conditions successfully with evidence-based protocols. Students at chiropractic/naturopathic/osteopathic/allopathic medical colleges will find Chiropractic and Naturopathic Mastery of Common Clinical Disorders to provide a needed blend of concepts as well as the practical how to information on patient management that is often neglected in other textbooks or which can only be obtained after years of clinical experience. This book will help you synthesize your courses in physical examination, manipulation, physiotherapy, nutrition, botanical medicine, neurology and therapeutic exercise into a cohesive set of skills that enables you to effectively help your patients overcome their acute/chronic health problems while you simultaneously promote optimal health--wellness--by looking at the bigger picture of their overall health rather than simply focusing on the problem. Chiropractic and Naturopathic Mastery of Common Clinical Disorders is a compilation of the most popular chapters from Dr Vasquez's previous editions of Integrative Orthopedics and Integrative Rheumatology with brand-new chapters on Asthma, Diabetes Mellitus Type-2 and Metabolic Syndrome, Hypertension, Disorders of Mood and Behavior, and Acute/Chronic Viral Infections. These new chapters help doctors extend their mastery beyond the musculoskeletal specialization detailed in Dr Vasquez's first three textbooks (Integrative Orthopedics, Integrative Rheumatology, and Musculoskeletal Pain: Expanded Clinical Strategies) to treat a much broader range of clinical problems and thus to achieve higher levels of clinical success. With these new chapters in addition to the time-tested chapters from his previous books, Dr Vasquez offers students and clinicians access to evidence-based protocols written specifically written for the successful private practice of chiropractic and/or naturopathic medicine.
