Abstract

This resource provides an evidence-based perspective on the health problems that affect men and the ways in which such problems may be prevented or treated utilizing a broad range of approaches. It covers how integrative treatments are becoming more popular with men whose healthcare providers understand that most of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in men, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, urologic disease, and sexual dysfunction, can be ameliorated using an integrative approach, with more emphasis on the patient-provider relationship, lifestyle change, and the use of proven complementary modalities in conjunction with conventional tools. All chapters take into consideration of all the factors that influence men's health including body, mind, and spirit in a way that neither rejects alternative approaches nor accepts any of them uncritically.
