For several decades, a rapidly emerging new medical paradigm--integrative medicine--has supported a renaissance in our understanding of lifelong wellness. In this timely book, Dr. Saputo presents the inspiring story of this new medicine, and reveals how it can unlock the door to a health care system that works for all Americans.Dr. Saputo and his journalist coauthor Byron Belitsos point out that corporatized medicine only gets to work once disease occurs. Integrative medicine, on the other hand, prioritizes prevention and non-invasive treatments as the first line of defense, and blends the best-evidenced solutions from both mainstream and alternative healing modalities. Conventional medicine's obsession with profitably treating symptoms drives up the cost of health care. And with nearly half of us lacking access to adequate health insurance, how do we deliver care to every American? Saputo and Belitsos further argue that single-payer national health insurance is a necessary but insufficient solution. A genuine return to healing requires that we combine regulatory reform with support for a transformed medical paradigm. Dr. Saputo's novel prescription for change draws from his front-line work as a cofounder of the Health Medicine movement and originator of one of America's first integrative medical clinics. Studded with essential wisdom for healthy living and with compelling stories drawn from his forty years of practice, A Return to Healing is rich with the latest research in both biomedical science and health care policy--and is a superb guide to the future of medicine.
