In 1930 the Cretan healer Nikolaos Konstantinos Theodorakis of Meronas re-copied a notebook containing medical lore passed down through his family over generations. The present volume offers an edition of this notebook together with an English translation, the first of its kind. It belongs to the genre of iatrosophia, practical handbooks dating mainly to the 17th to 19th centuries which compiled healing wisdom, along with snippets of agricultural, meteorological and veterinary advice, and admixtures of religion, astrology and magic. Both fascinating and of critical importance, iatrosophia allow glimpses of classical and Byzantine medical sources and illustrate the vitality and resilience of Greek traditional medical and botanical knowledge. From years spent exploring local healing customs in Crete's Amari region, Patricia Clark is able to present Theodorakis' iatrosophion against a rich historical, geographical and social background. Introductory essays and explanatory notes to the translation give context to the iatrosophion and provide the specialized information necessary for a good understanding of the text. The abundant materia medica of the notebook is treated in a substantial appendix. Each animal, mineral, plant or product is provided with an overview of its various names through the millennia. Such entries are not only a key to understanding the Greek medical legacy, but also a vivid illustration of its usage from antiquity to the present day.

The Handbook examines the developing social position of alternative medicine, including legal, political, scientific, educational, and demographic aspects, and considers why people choose complementary therapies, how many do so, and what happens during and after their treatment. For each therapy, there is a concise review of the theoretical, practical, and research aspects, written in collaboration with a leading practitioner, and providing an authoritative introduction to the field. The book also includes an invaluable resource guide, covering all the significant colleges, professional bodies, and societies in this area of medicine, and detailing over 250 organizations, as well as an extensive glossary and bibliography. This third edition has been extensively rewritten, expanded, and updated, and reflects the dramatic increase in complementary medicine over the past few years - in the UK alone there are more alternative practitioners than general practitioners now. It charts the growing level of interest among medical professionals and the general public; the coverage of research has been extended; new sections have been added dealing with the UK National Health Service and education. The Handbook is an invaluable reference source for all medical practitioners, including nurses, researchers, and administrators, as well as members of the general public who want to make an informed choice about complementary medicine.
