Summary note:
"The World Health Organization has acknowledged that the majority of people living in developing countries continue to use traditional medicine. Increased levels of immigration and migration also mean that health professionals are more likely to come into contact with patients using them. Traditional Medicine is therefore a vital and timely book which covers medical systems practised on five continents, including: traditional European folk medicine; Aboriginal/traditional medicine in North America; traditional medicine in the Colombian Amazon Tropical forest; traditional medical practice in Africa; traditional Chinese medicine; Indian Ayurvedic medicine; Japanese Kampo medicine; Korean medicine; traditional medicines in the Pacific; and traditional Jewish medicine."--Publisher's description.
