Homeopathy is over 200 years old and is still experiencing an uninterrupted influx of new practitioners and patients. Many patients and therapists swear by this "alternative healing method", which in some countries is even financed by health insurances.

Abstract
Homeopathy is over 200 years old and is still experiencing an uninterrupted influx of new practitioners and patients. Many patients and therapists swear by this "alternative healing method", which in some countries is even financed by health insurances. This seems completely incomprehensible to critics: For them it is clearly evident that homeopathy is hopelessly unscientific and has at best a placebo effect. The positions of supporters and opponents seem to be just as immutable as they are incompatible. This book answers some essential and fascinating questions: What remains of the founding ideas of homeopathy in 21st century medicine? Does it really work and, if so, how? Which of the original theories can we still apply today with a clear conscience and use for the benefit of patients and the healthcare system? Where does homeopathy have its limits and does it indeed need to be critically reconsidered and evaluated? The author has dealt with the points of criticism for years, but at the same time also takes seriously the wishes and concerns of patients who often feel insufficiently cared for by conventional medical practice. Against the background of her own personal history, her book attempts to bridge the gap between these two traditionally opposing camps.
Contents
How and on what basis does homeopathy treat? -- Homeopathy: What are we talking about? -- Is homeopathy part of today's medicine? -- Why do patients turn to homeopathy? -- What remains of homeopathy in the 21st century? -- Here and Now.

Abstract
Comprised exclusively of clinical cases of patients with hypoparathyroidism, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat the various forms of the disorder they may encounter. It presents a detailed cross-section of patients across all age groups, with different etiologies of the disease and possible complications, to present sensible management scenarios to physicians treating patients with hypoparathyroidism. The cases presented include the management of acute and chronic hypocalcemia following neck surgery, as well as autoimmune, syndromic, idiopathic, and autosomal dominant etiologies. Conventional management with calcium and active vitamin D as well as parathyroid hormone therapy are discussed. In addition, cases are presented highlighting the chronic manifestations of the disease, including complications involving the renal, neurologic, and skeletal systems, as well as cataracts and quality of life. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Hypoparathyroidism: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for endocrinologists and other clinicians caring for patients with this disease.

Abstract
This handbook has been designed for practicing dental clinicians and students, which includes dental hygienists, general dentists, periodontists, and students of dental hygiene and dentistry who are responsible for treating patients with a broad spectrum of periodontal diseases. The book will enable practicing clinicians and students to successfully meet the challenge of excellent patient care, by providing , in a concise and simplified format, both classic and contemporary practical measures that address all aspects of non-surgical periodontal disease management. Readers are carefully guided through an extensive body of accumulated knowledge in eight broad chapters which includes: the patient's involvement in disease control and prevention, the clinician's instrumentation for the diagnosis and basic treatment of gingivitis/periodontitis along with pharmacotherapeutics and supportive maintenance therapy to ensure long-term success. Numerous illustrations help to bring the presented ideas and suggestions to life and the succinct nature of the text will allow readers to transfer useful information quickly to their own clinical settings.

Abstract
This text comprises of sixteen first-person narratives from some of the most influential women in psychiatry about why they went into the field, what they attribute to success, and how they overcame their challenges. The second part of this text analyzes the themes brought to light in the narrative and discusses strategies for success. Though several of the chapters target issues that women in academic psychiatry may not have a resource for, several of the chapters discuss challenges that both men and women face, including strategic actions and decisions and the time investment necessary for a successful career in academic psychiatry. The topics are relevant to medical professionals at every level of their career who are or work with women in the field. Women in Academic Psychiatry is a unique resource for the professional woman in psychiatry, psychology, medical school, for men who face particular career challenges in academic medicine or are cultivating young women who are eager to succeed.

Abstract
The authoritative reference on depression and mood disorders, this volume brings together the field's preeminent researchers. All aspects of unipolar and bipolar depression are addressed, from genetics, neurobiology, and social-contextual risk factors to the most effective approaches to assessment and clinical management. Contributors review what is known about depression in specific populations, exploring developmental issues across the lifespan as well as gender and cultural variables. Effective psychosocial and biological treatments are described in detail. Each chapter offers a definitive statement of current theories, methods, and findings, and identifies key questions that remain to be answered.
