Book Description

This book explains the treatment of endocrine disorders using natural therapies. Donald Beans provides the reader with everything there is to know to treat endocrine disorders without hormones. This book outlines the function of the endocrine glands and the testing of their function including clinical laboratory evaluation and bedside diagnosis. This is the first book to include the entire endocrine system and many natural therapies in one text, thus allowing the practitioner an unprecedented insight into endocrine treatment. Integrative Endocrinology discusses, in depth, the fundamental philosophical difference between hormone replacement therapy and integrative endocrinology.

Natural therapies include acupuncture, gland cell therapy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, and a number of other methods. This book is of great value to health professionals, students and scholars in integrative medicine, alternative medicine and endocrinology. It is also valuable as a self help handbook for the motivated non-professional.
