About this title


For several decades, a rapidly emerging new medical paradigm 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.

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 cowriter Byron Belitsos 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.

About the Author:

Len Saputo, MD, a graduate of Duke University Medical School, is board certified in internal medicine, and was in private practice in affiliation with John Muir Medical Center for more than thirty years. After his awakening to the deep flaws in conventional medicine, Saputo developed a new paradigm that is now known as integral-health medicine. He founded the Health Medicine Forum in 1994, and went on to found and direct the Health Medicine Center in Walnut Creek, California , one of the first integrative clinics. He is the coauthor of Boosting Immunity: Creating Wellness Naturally; has edited six books, including Beating the Years and Boosting Your Digestive Health; and has authored book chapters and journal articles on numerous medical and health subjects. Byron Belitsos is a widely published journalist, author, and editor. He was educated at the University of Chicago and was an inaugural member of the Integral Institute.
