Gastroenterologists, internist, and nutritionist Minocha (medicine, Louisiana State U.-Shreveport) offers health care practitioners a guide to the remedies that patients are trying and asking about but that are not part of the standard Western medical training. He covers the digestive system and complementary and alternative medicine, humans as superorganisms, leaky gut syndrome, types of complementary and alternative therapies used, the safety of dietary supplements, some commonly used non-herbal supplements, upper and lower gastrointestinal disorders, feeding disorders, cancer, liver, biliary and pancreatic disorders, and healthy nutrient potpourri. The guide is peer reviewed and heavily referenced.
