This book traces the separate and interlacing paths of magic, religion, and medicine through the centuries as they relate to healing. Alternative Medicine or Magical Healing attempts to give a balanced picture of the new age healing movement, and is on the lookout for supportive data in the great bulk of relevant material. Which treatments should be approached with caution or entirely avoided? Which methods have good supportive studies and might be cautiously accepted as complementary additions to allopathic treatment? The book discusses in greater detail those methods having a scientific basis and suggests how others might benefit from further carefully controlled studies. It also discusses blatant quackery and the methods used to sell pseudo-medicine to an ever-gullible public eagerly searching for magical cures.
