[Saputo's] recommendations for transforming our current disease-centric, crumbling paradigm are brilliant, life-saving, and should be immediately adopted by the current administration." --Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, department chair, Integrative Health Studies, California Institute of Integral Studies

  • Author Len Saputo

    Len Saputo, MD, is board certified in internal medicine and is the developer of a new paradigm that is now known as integral-health medicine. He founded the Health Medicine Forum and was the director of the Health Medicine Center in Walnut Creek, California--one the first integrative clinics. He lives in Walnut Creek, California.

For several decades, a rapidly emerging person-centered medical paradigm has catalyzed a renaissance in the understanding of lifelong wellness, and this timely book presents the inspiring story of this new medicine, revealing how it can unlock the door to a health care system that works for all Americans. This resource explains how corporatized medicine only gets to work once disease occurs, while integrative medicine prioritizes prevention and noninvasive treatments as the first line of defense, blending the best-evidenced solutions from both mainstream and alternative healing modalities. It argues that single-payer national health insurance is a necessary but insufficient solution and suggests a genuine return to healing by combining regulatory reform with support for a transformed medical paradigm. Rich with the latest research in both biomedical science and health care policy, this is a superb guide to the future of medicine.
