About this book
This book establishes and specifies a rigorously scientific and clinically valid basis for nonpharmaceutical approaches to many common diseases and disorders found in clinical settings. It includes lifestyle and supplement recommendations for beginning and maintaining autonomic nervous system and mitochondrial health and wellness. The book is organized around a six-pronged mind-body wellness program and contains a series of clinical applications and frequently asked questions. The physiologic need and clinical benefit and synergism of all six aspects working together are detailed, including the underlying biochemistry, with exhaustive references to statistically significant and clinically relevant studies. The book covers a range of clinical disorders, including anxiety, arrhythmia, atherosclerosis, bipolar disease, dementia, depression, fatigue, fibromyalgia, heart diseases, hypertension, mast cell disorder, migraine, and PTSD. Clinical Autonomic and Mitochondrial Disorders: Diagnosis, Prevention, and Treatment for Mind-Body Wellness is an essential resource for physicians, residents, fellows, medical students, and researchers in cardiology, primary care, neurology, endocrinology, psychiatry, and integrative and functional medicine. It provides therapy options to the indications and diagnoses published in our book Clinical Autonomic Dysfunction (Springer, 2014).
