Alternative Health Dictionary, A-Z
Alternative Health Dictionary
|This work is a dictionary in the sense that it features a list of expressions that pertain to a particular subject and describes their referents briefly. It concerns alternative medicine in the broadest senses of the expression "alternative medicine" and its synonyms (which number more than 30). More specifically, this work concerns particular methods of alternative medicine, including self-contained methods, component methods, groups of methods, systems, and substyles. It is reasonably describable as concerning both alt-med methods and close relatives of alternative medicine.|
- With an emphasis on theories, it succinctly describes well over 1,300 health-related methods - ranging alphabetically from abhyanga to Zulu Sangoma bones - that are medically non-mainstream in the Western Hemisphere.
