Updated for its second edition, this book is the only reference to focus exclusively on natural medications in psychiatry.

Eminent psychiatrists from the Massachusetts General Hospital and other leading institutions examine current scientific and clinical data on the applications, effectiveness, and safety of natural psychotropics and acupuncture. Quick-reference tabular appendices list indications, contraindications, dosages, combinations, and drug-drug interactions for each remedy.

This edition includes brand-new chapters on acupuncture, homeopathy, and therapies for substance dependence and weight management. The chapter on polypharmacy and side effect management addresses the growing issue of drug-drug interactions. New introductory chapters discuss complementary and alternative medicine in society and examine research limitations and quality assurance issues.
