For each side-by-side conventional/alternative comparison, readers get: A description of the ailment each treats. The generic and common brand names of each treatment. Active ingredients. How each treatment works. Dosage, where applicable. Treatment efficacy and timing. Common mild side effects. Less common serious side effects.

Organized from "A" to "Z," this book also covers a special "spotlight" on various important natural remedies and methods that can be used for a variety of ailments.
