Whether its Moms chicken soup for a cold, black cohosh for menopausal symptoms, St. Johns wort for depression, or balancing your chi to renew your energy, every culture employs alternative and complementary therapies to help prevent or relieve disease symptoms or side effects, ease pain, and enhance life. The integration of these alternative and complementary therapies into conventional health care by health care practitioners and individuals is growing every year. Complementary Health Practice Review is one of the few resources that offers the cultural, social, demographic, political, economic, and legal implications of the use of alternative and complementary therapies as well as original basic and applied research from a wide range of health and social science disciplines. In every issue, Complementary Health Practice Review examines significant topics and trends that are shaping alternative and complementary health practice. Original and peer-reviewed articles address theoretical aspects of holistic health and discuss educational, legal, legislative, and policy developments influencing evidence-based complementary and alternative health practice. Historical, socio-cultural, and humanistic research helps provide a broad contextual basis for the clinically oriented content, which includes original clinical research, case reports, and expert reviews of clinical issues. The multidisciplinary nature of the journal illuminates relationships not often found in more specialized journals and fosters information exchange across disciplines and dialogue among health professional in new and effective ways.
