Editors' reviewThis reference-based product contains information about natural healing therapies but the crowded interface and poor navigation make it cumbersome to use. It also lacks the ability to print the in-depth information it provides. The program's elementary buttons crowd the screen and the busy background interferes with the ability to read the text on the menu screen. Content options include topic definitions, treatments, and clinical studies, and also provides a list of related organizations and reference books. Unfortunately, the design is not impressive. As an example, content screens include Next navigation buttons, but no back buttons to get to previous pages. Natural Healing Introduction also lacks an uninstall feature. While this freeware does offer information for users of natural therapies, some may find its database elementary.
The Natural Healing Introduction presents many of today's popular alternative medicine therapies alongside ancient healing traditions and new discoveries. Featured Therapies: Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Autogenic Training, Ayurveda, Biofeedback, Chiropractic Treatment, Color Therapy, Herbs, Homeopathy, Hydrotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Light Therapy, Magnetic Fields, Meditation, Nutrition and Acid-Base Balance, Reflexology, Sound Therapy, Therapeutic Touch, Tissue Salts, Visualization and Yoga. Also includes the Herbal First Aid Kit and the Tridosha Self-Test. The information pages also include listings of useful applications for each particular therapy. For educational use only.
