"A Return to Healing" by Len Saputo, MD - Hardcover Book
A Return to Healing is a book about sustainable health care reform and the future of medicine. It is the story of a veteran physician's experience through 40 years of medical practice and an expose of the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry, the insurance industry, medical research, medical education, the FDA and CDC, and of the US Congress. Health care has become a business first and service only when it does not interfere with return on investment. Forty six million working Americans are without health insurance, and despite the fact that we spend $2.5 trillion on health care, we are ranked 37th in the world by the World Health Organization in overall quality of care.
Saputo goes on to share the story of the Health Medicine Forum and how it pioneered a new model of health care called Integral Health Medicine. Health Medicine is built on four principles: integrative, holistic, person-centered, preventive health care. He describes the challenges and rewards he faced over the past decade as he brought this model into clinical practice at the Health Medicine Center in Walnut Creek, California.
Lastly, Saputo tackles the imperative of radical health care reform and offers possible solutions in an environment that is competitive and corrupt. He also reminds us that before we can heal our health care system, we must heal our culture, and we cannot heal our culture unless we are first willing to heal ourselves.
