May 20, 2004 Dr. Donald Novey, Medical Director of the Center for Complementary Medicine at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, wrote the book "The Clinicians Complete Reference to Complementary and Alternative Medicine. "

"The Clinicians Complete Reference to Complementary and Alternative Medicine" takes guesswork out of alternative medicine: physician from Lutheran General Hospital puts it all together for easy use. Public demand for complementary and alternative medicines has recently found its way into many physicians offices, and merging traditional and alternative treatments has created a great need for a resource that can be used by health professionals and consumers alike. Donald Novey, M.D., director, Center for Complementary Medicine, Lutheran General Hospital, Park Ridge, has written a unique text for consumers and clinicians alike. The book is designed to bridge the gap between traditional medical treatment and the growing field of complementary health care.

"The Clinicians Complete Reference to Complementary and Alternative Medicine," 850 p., is the first book of its kind to serve as that resource. The book, written by 90 contributors, all leaders in their field of alternative therapy, covers virtually every treatment from aromatherapy and meditation, to acupuncture and herbal remedies.

Each chapter is structured for ease of use and is broken down into categories that make it easy to find what you are looking for: Origins and History, Mechanism of Action, Forms of Therapy, Demographics, Office Applications, Research, Risk and Safety, Credentialing and Training, Barriers and Key Issues. This "everything you ever wanted to know about...." format for each therapy makes this an easy to use and understand guide.

"The book is designed for rapid access to the information that both clinicians and nonmedical readers need to know," said Dr. Novey. "The structured format allows easy location of very specific information on over 60 forms of alternative therapy, with guidelines for the conditions or problems for which each therapy works best."

According to Dr. Novey, the text provides information on alternative therapies on a level not previously found in a single source."Hopefully, this book will fill the gap left empty by most other texts on this subject," said Dr. Novey.

The Center for Complementary Medicine opened in August, 1998, and is located on the campus of Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. The center provides a unique team approach that combines the best of traditional and alternative medicines. All therapies are conducted under the direction of board certified physicians. Practitioners share their findings and treatment plans with the patient's physician.
