Alternative and complementary medicine offers a different perspective on medical treatment than traditional Western medical practices. Alternative medicine focuses on the patient's natural ability and desire to heal as an appropriate basis for medical therapy. Rather than seeking a cure to the disease, alternative medicine seeks to help the patient heal and achieve a holistic balance, both within the individual and of the individual within society.

Alternative Medicine Sourcebook helps the layperson understand the issues and controversies surrounding alternative and complementary medicine. It provides an overview of the different families of therapies as well as in-depth descriptions of some of the most common practices. A glossary of terms and a directory of resources are also presented.
