Integrative Nutrition Therapy by Mary J. Marian

Integrative medicine is an approach to wellness that makes use of both conventional and alternative therapies to achieve optimal health and healing. Nutrition-based therapies are consistently among the highest used alternative therapies to treat a wide variety of illnesses. This book provides consumers and health care professionals with practical guidance on integrating nutrition therapies into disease prevention and management. It provides reliable and accurate information from experts in the nutrition field including dietitians, nutritionists, physicians, researchers, and academic professionals.

Integrative Nutrition Therapy includes up-to-date information on dietary supplements, popular diets, physical activity, and food allergies. The book covers disease prevention for cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Additional topics include liver/pancreatic conditions and musculoskeletal disorders as well as nutrigenomics, epigenetics, and metabolomics. The book provides evidence-based recommendations for which therapies might be appropriate for various conditions and discusses the possible adverse effects that may develop. It also includes guidelines and suggestions for creating individualized, integrative care plans.

Integrative Nutrition Therapy is organized in a systematic manner that presents the scientific data using an evidence-based, how-to approach. An overview of integrative medicine is written by Dr. Roberta Lee, a leading authority in the field.
