As of 2012, about half of all adults and children have one or more chronic health conditions. One in four adults has two or more chronic health conditions. And sadly, these numbers continue to grow at an alarming rate. The Holistic Rx offers the reader with one or more chronic health conditions or symptoms easy-to-follow evidence-based approaches to healing their ailments by targeting inflammation and its underlying root causes. Dr. Madiha Saeed covers the foundations of good health like digestive health and detoxification and the four S’s—stress management, sleep strategies, social and spiritual health—along with disease-specific supplements, homeopathy, acupressure, aromatherapy, and other holistic remedies to achieve lasting good health and wellness. The first part of the book addresses inflammation, the root of chronic health conditions, examining its root causes and possible treatment approaches that focus on the whole body rather than just the affected area. In the second part of the book, Saeed first advises readers on adjusting the Holistic Rx for their personal condition(s). Then, after briefly describing integrative approaches, she provides an A to Z guide to holistic and integrative treatment of chronic illnesses, conditions, and symptoms. For each condition, she outlines a healing plan that begins with digestive health, detoxifications, special considerations specific to that organ system, and covers the additional alternative, holistic, and complementary approaches most effective for that particular condition. This ready resource will help the whole family address the most common complaints and promote a healthy, balanced lifestyle that focuses on overall wellness.
