    Despite tremendous gains in medical knowledge, most conditions are managed, rather than cured, by medications. As a result, countless patients seek supplemental modes of care to better control their symptoms and conditions to improve their overall wellbeing. This reality spotlights the need for adjuvant medical procedures.

    Adjuvant medical care refers to any supportive therapy that enhances the outcome of medical measures already in place. Adjuvant care does not replace primary or traditional treatments, but instead serves as add-on care to the initial medical treatment plan prescribed by a health care provider. The addition of one or more non-prescription therapies (e.g., nutritional support, over-the-counter remedies, home care, dietary measures, supplements, etc.) to the primary medical management regimen has become increasingly popular and mainstream thanks to scientific studies that have documented favorable outcomes for many patients.

    The verifiable scientific merit of these additional medical options demonstrates their usefulness in the treatment of many medical conditions. The purpose of this handbook is to provide support to doctors and patients who are interested in safe and effective non-prescription and non-pharmacological medical therapies for specific conditions to minimize symptoms and optimize recovery and quality of life.

    • Helps doctors and patients discover additional therapies that can reduce pain, advance health outcomes, minimize complications and disability, and extend life.

    • Presents safe, reliable, and practical options that are available to reduce symptoms, maximize recovery, and positively augment the management of a variety of conditions.

    • Provides medical insight into less traditional, yet often effective, supportive options for enhancing and optimizing patient response to care.

    "This book uses an encyclopedic format to list and give suggestions for treating a wide variety of conditions using over-the counter medications, alternative and complementary modalities (chiropractic, acupuncture, meditation, and others), and nutritional supplements. It is a fairly well-referenced work that could be useful as a starting point for primary care, portal-of-entry physicians as well as patients to investigate alternatives/additions to pharmaceutical treatments for many common (and some not-so-common) conditions."
