Abstract
This book reveals the numerous ways in which moral, ethical and legal principles are being violated by those who provide, recommend or sell ?complementary and alternative medicine? (CAM). The book analyses both academic literature and internet sources that promote CAM. Additionally the book presents a number of brief scenarios, both hypothetical and real-life, about individuals who use CAM or who fall prey to ethically dubious CAM practitioners. The events and conundrums described in these scenarios could happen to almost anyone. Professor emeritus of complementary medicine Edzard Ernst together with bioethicist Kevin Smith provide a thorough and authoritative ethical analysis of a range of CAM modalities, including acupuncture, chiropractic, herbalism, and homeopathy. This book could and should interest all medical professionals who have contact to complementary medicine and will be an invaluable reference for patients deliberating which course of treatment to adopt. - Cover

Abstract
Nous cherchons souvent le remède miracle à nos maux, la pilule qui permettrait d'enrayer rapidement nos symptômes. Il n'existe toutefois aucune solution «toute prête» pour nous prémunir contre les nombreuses maladies chroniques qui prolifèrent actuellement. Cela dit, le Dr Brouillard nous invite à prendre notre santé en mains en adoptant une vision globale qui réconcilie le corps, le c?ur et l'esprit. En s'appuyant sur la recherche scientifique, il bouleverse notre perception du corps et de ce qui l'entoure en démontrant à quel point notre mode de vie, notre environnement, nos dispositions émotives ou mentales et même nos pratiques spirituelles influent sur notre bien-être au quotidien. Puisant autant dans la médecine occidentale que dans la sagesse ancestrale et les traditions orientales, il suggère des pistes de solutions pour prévenir la maladie et augmenter la vitalité. Dans cette optique, la santé devient un art de vivre à cultiver ici et maintenant.

"Dancing with Cancer focuses on the creation of a positive and proactive mindset with which to face the specific challenges and stages of cancer. It combines the author's own experience of using what she calls Thought Work (including creative self-expression, healing energy work and meditation) with conventional cancer treatment in order to connect her intentions for healing to the everyday reality of a diagnosis of incurable bone-marrow cancer. The book offers guidance and inspiration not only to cancer sufferers as they undergo the various stages of treatment but also to those supporting them, enabling them to understand better the experience of the cancer patient as well as the possibilities of mind?body empowerment" -- Publisher

Le Taï Chi Chuan ou « méditation du mouvement » est issu du Taoïsme, qui est une forme de sagesse chinoise. Il peut être considéré comme une gymnastique, mais c'est aussi un véritable art martial, aujourd'hui pratiqué de manière non violente. Il favorise la détente et le relâchement musculaire, et développe le calme et la tranquillité, ainsi qu'une certaine force intérieure. Un livre bien adapté pour les enfants, des illustrations en couleurs pour décrire tous les mouvements.

This revised edition focuses on herbs, nutrition, and other natural health approaches such as exercise, aromatherapy, and visualization to offer a holistic plan for wellness during perimenopause (the time leading up to and including menopause) and the postmenopausal years. Experienced medical herbalist and author Amanda McQuade Crawford examines both the age-old wisdom of nature and new research on natural therapies to address a wide range of menopausal symptoms and bodily issues.
