Health Now: An Integrative Approach to Personal Health by Linda B. White, M.D. covers the concepts you expect but adds a few important innovations that will capture students' attention and help you deliver the most current content. White pays far more than lip service to the rise of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
> Chapter 2 covers integrative medicine—the marriage of conventional and CAM therapies. And when appropriate, chapters throughout provide an integrative, holistic point-of-view to the topics discussed.
> Every chapter includes: “Assess Yourself,” which offers self-assessment tools for students, and “When to Seek Help,” which offers warning signs to keep in mind.
> Chapter 15 covers men’s and women’s health concerns, exploring the differences and providing both genders with tools to cope with gender-specific maladies.
