Patient-Based Medicine: Treat the Patient, Not the Disease

This book addresses the deep chasm that exists between the traditional and conventional practice of medicine on one hand, and the existence of critical reasoning and astute evaluation of what constitutes benefit for the patient, and not just the improvement of a symptom, on the other hand. The book clearly spells out how the deeply conservative conventional medical approach not only is callous and insensitive, but can also be quite dangerous to patients’ health. Furthermore, the book introduces the reader to a world of effective alternative approaches which can lead to betterment or even complete remission of patients’ conditions. Also addressed is a relevant paradigm for devising studies that focus on patient improvement rather than symptom alleviation. Indeed, the book’s focus on patient improvement and wellbeing.
