African-Americans are susceptible to certain medical conditions, and thus, have an average lifespan that is ten years shorter than Caucasians. Previously, these disorders, which include sickle-cell anemia, diabetes, and vitiligo, had been ignored by the medical community.Health & Healing for African-Americans is an encyclopedia of medical advice and treatment prescribed by 150 leading African-American physicians. It offers a clear description of each condition, followed by home remedies, medical treatments, and strategies that have a proven track record in managing and preventing these pressing health problems.With a foreword from former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, M.D., every page of this valuable tome begins with personal stories from people who have faced and overcome their health problems. With its hundreds of helpful health messages, Health & Healing for African-Americans is on the cutting edge of a revolution in disease prevention and self-care among African-Americans.
