ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES FOR MANAGING DIABETES
"David Drum's Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes is a comprehensive and useful look at alternative therapies for men and woman with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in "going a little farther" along the road to self-managing diabetes."
--Terry Zierenberg, RN, CDE*
The self-management of diabetes doesn't have to stop with diabetes pills, insulin shots, and blood sugar testing. Many people with diabetes can benefit from alternative therapies to help them manage or control symptoms in tandem with conventional medicine.
To explain how this may be done, the updated Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes contains clear and practical explanations of many therapies as well as interviews with several people with diabetes who have used and benefited from alternative or complementary therapies to maintain their good health.
One of the most useful books ever produced on integrating alternative therapies with conventional medical treatment, Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes is now available as an e-book from Burning Books Press. Recently updated by medical journalist David Drum, the book's original author, the new Vintage Wellness Edition of Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes remains a classic and thoughtful look at the virtues and drawbacks of a great many alternative or complementary therapies that may help men and women seeking to control the ravages of diabetes.
In 24 well-researched chapters, Alternative Therapies for Managing Diabetes examines the available research for several dozen therapies to support their use for people with diabetes. The book includes chapters on vitamins, minerals, foods, and herbal medicines which may be useful in controlling high blood sugar and other symptoms.
