Integrative approach to Health – Books I like

These are some books that expanded my knowledge and proved useful in working with my clients. The prices shown are the total costs for getting used books in ‘Very Good’ to ‘Good’ condition by US mail (total cost of book and shipping) from, unless otherwise mentioned. Most books arrive in a week. I was rarely disappointed with the quality. I also buy used books sold at the local library book sales. They cost $0.50 to $2. I label their prices same or lower than what I have to spend, to get a replacement copy from

I sell them to my clients on “Return anytime and get full refund” policy. Many of them are happy to buy them. Some kept them forever, some returned for refund and some said “I don’t want any refund”. This arrangement is very practical and really helpful for expanding the skill set of my clients.

  • Do you believe in Magic?- The sense and non-sense of Alternative medicine by Paul A. Offit M.D

The author says “There is no such thing as conventional or alternative or complementary or integrative or holistic medicine. There is only medicine that works and medicine that does not work. And the best way to sort this out is by carefully evaluating scientific studies – not by visiting internet chat rooms, reading magazine articles or talking to friends.” $ 25
