内容紹介

These therapies are organized alphabetically so that readers can readily pinpoint a specific treatment and learn about its origins, merits, and possible uses in MS. They will find in-depth discussions on topics that include acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractic medicine, cooling therapy, yoga, diets and fatty acid supplements, the use of herbs, vitamins and minerals, and much more. With this book, readers will be able to: * find unconventional options that may provide symptomatic relief when conventional therapies are limited * learn about potentially dangerous interactions between CAM therapies and medical treatments used in the management of MS * identify CAM therapies that are possibly effective, low risk, and inexpensive * recognize ineffective, dangerous, or costly alternative therapies A section on integrating conventional and unconventional medicine links specific symptoms to potentially useful CAM therapies. This means that if readers have a particular concern, such as spasticity or bladder problems, they will be able to identify potentially useful alternative strategies. A glossary of popular supplements that are commonly used in MS care is provided.

レビュー

"Rarely does a publication address an unmet need as thoroughly as Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis...Dr. Allen Bowling is uniquely qualified to produce a book on CAM, having a doctorate in pharmacology and clinical experience as a neurologist treating people with MS. Organized in a user-friendly format, the topics are grouped in logical categories. In addition, references are provided, encouraging further exploration. Highly recommended for people with MS, their families, and their health-care providers." -- InsideMS "Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis is a much-needed resource. Dr. Bowling has done an excellent job of making his reader more aware of the myriad forms of non-traditional therapies available." -- Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers "In Dr. Allen Bowling's Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis, he enables the reader to find unconventional options that may provide symptomatic relief when conventional therapies for multiple sclerosis are limited or otherwise unsatisfactory. Dr. Bowling explains the potentially dangerous interactions between complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies and medical treatments utilized in the management of MS; identifies CAM therapies that are possibly effective, low risk, and inexpensive; and exposes ineffective, dangerous, or needlessly costly alternative therapies. Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis is a very highly recommended and informative addition to any personal or professional multiple sclerosis reading list." --The Bookwatch February 2001

5つ星のうち 3.0 MSの代替治療 2004/8/19
投稿者 julietomato
形式:ペーパーバック
多発性硬化症の代替治療法。どれもこれも根本的に病気を治すものではないけれど、インターフェロン以外の何か別の治療がないか考えている人は試してみては。その効果も人それぞれだろうけれど、一時的にでも楽になって、それが自分に合うとわかればもっといい。

5つ星のうち 4.0 A good resource 2002/4/18
投稿者 Kathleen - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
I don't agree with the reviews that state this book as not being helpful. Obviously a MD is careful about recommending alternative therapies (and to do it in writing goes even farther against their grain.) With that said, Dr. Bowling includes a multitude of options and resources that any proactive patient would find of value. And he states right up front that he supports a complementary approach that uses western practices along with the alternative therapies. He offers fact, theory and opinion on these therapies (he's ok with just about every one that doesn't involve infusions/IVs, chemicals and the like) And yes, he has a bias for the ABC&Rebif drugs (and there's nothing wrong with that... I've read a lot of books written by alternative practioners who don't have anything good to say about western options/drugs; so one needs to consider the source and take a proactive approach to his/her own healing.) Just the section on Vitamins, Minerals & Other NonHerbal Supplements is worth it (having that info whittled down to 23 pages versus some oversized volume on the topic was great.) If you've gotten this far (meaning you're interested enough in this title to be reading the reviews), I say Go For It; one can never have enough info and if this book gives you just one new piece of information... then that's one more than what you started with.

5つ星のうち 5.0 An excellent starting point 2002/10/11
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)

To explore alternative medicine is to take a journey into aspects of healing that are outside of patentable pharmacology. The journey is easier with a map, but the map is only a starting point. When considering alternative medicine, we need to make our own decisions about approaches to health that often have not been studied in the way that patentable drugs have been studied. Even so, the journey should begin by learning what has previously been reported on the subject.
Dr. Bowling's book is a fist-rate description of the terrain of alternative medicine. Unlike other MS-specific books about alternative medicine, his is based on a review of published literature rather than on personal experience, anecdote and fancy.
Part of Dr. Bowling's accomplishment is that he has managed to catalogue a diverse and hard-to-define area. More imortantly, it describes, in succint and easy-to-understand and language, the published research that is available on about 40 different areas of alternative medicine.
Don't buy the book thinking there is a cure for MS to be found in its pages. On the other hand, if you are looking for a starting point for understanding alternative medicine, then this book is a useful resource.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Better than expected 2003/1/20

After reading some of the reviews I hestitated on buying this. I had just been diagnosed with MS. I started taking the shots (and still am) but wanted to find other things that I could do. From the reviews I thought this would be an alternative medicine bashing book but its not. It states the facts as they are and shows pros and cons, leave a lot for the reader to consider. I found this to be a well-rounded book that had good info.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Not Worth the Money 2001/8/28
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)

I was dxd about a year ago, and I decided not to try the ABC drugs. I use a completely holistic approach, using a modified Swank Diet, supplements, exercise, yoga, etc. I have been in remission for over a year. I know that R/R MS goes in remission naturally anyway, but I feel alternative therapies have a great deal to offer someone with MS. This book discounts most of them or simply says "not enough information" or "no real evidence to prove this therapy." I have a problem with Dr. Bowling discounting the Swank diet when so many MS patients have used it with success. He notes that the diet never went through a clinical trial; however, it is impossible to do a clinical trial on a diet because there cannot be a double blind study (you can't have a blind control group with a diet because they will know they are changing their diet, etc.). This is not a valid reason to discount the diet. Also, he says the ABC's have gone through clinical trials, and have been proven to work. Well, they offer about a 30% reduction in relapses, have severe side effects, and cost $1k a month. This does not seem that great to me. Also, I don't completely trust the results of a clinical trial done on the ABC's too because the group getting the drug may know they are getting something (i.e. the side effects of the drug are pretty severe and this will indicate to the group that they are not in the placebo group), and this in itself may lead to their decrease in relapses (sheer belief that they are taking something to help. Doctors today do not know how or why these drugs work (if they do). They don't even know what causes MS. The book doesn't offer much, in my opinion. It is very wishy-washy about whether any therapy works (except for the drugs, which he strongly advocates). I would advise one going to mercola.com for a better treatment for chronic illness. Diet takes willpower and lots of people say to me that they cannot do it while they are stuffing their face with a doughnut, but I would think having MS would be enough motivation to change one's lifestyle, wouldn't you??
