Since its initial publication in 1990, Mayo Clinic Family Health Book has become a classic home medical reference, selling more than 1 million copies. Now in its third edition, this completely revised, generously illustrated volume offers the latest in medical knowledge with a strong emphasis on self-care. From prevention to treatment, from infancy to old age, this comprehensive health guide offers reliable, easy-to-understand information in six convenient sections.

Part I: Living Well

Filled with health-promotion strategies, this section details nutrition, fitness, stress management and other practices for healthy living.

Part II: Common Conditions and Concerns Through Life's Stages

Here you'll find explanations of human growth and development, descriptions of health issues common to children and adults, and a discussion of issues related to death and dying.

Part III: Making Sense of Your Symptoms

This all-new section is intended to help you better understand what may be causing certain signs or symptoms that you're experiencing. It includes information on frequent concerns and complaints common to adults, as well as those common to children.

Part IV: First Aid and Emergency Care

Here you'll find guidance on how to respond to situations ranging from simple sprains and cuts to urgent events such as chest pain and choking.

Part V: Diseases and Disorders

The largest section in the book, Part V includes discussions of more than 1,000 diseases and disorders. Here you can find detailed information about specific conditions. Each discussion lists common signs and symptoms, followed by a description of the condition, information on how it's diagnosed and a review of treatment options. Preceding this section are 40 pages of color illustrations to help you better understand human anatomy and common disorders.
