Peer-reviewed articles are used to examine complementary interventions such as Tai Chi, cupping, and acupressure. Areas of emphasis include the whole-food, plant-based diet; mental illness comorbidities; and tobacco/nicotine use and cessation. Woven throughout the textbook are case scenarios, images of mock patient, and lots of color to engage the reader and enhance the learning experience.
