Your health is in your hands.
Tapestry of Health is your partner on your path to optimal wellness.

Tapestry of Health offers a new perspective on how we view wellness and reflects the shift from seeking medical care only when we are sick to one when we mindfully take responsibility for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Tapestry of Health offers you a path to a new kind of curative, preventive and transformative healthcare where your doctor is your partner on your path to optimal wellness.

In Tapestry of Health: Weaving Wellness into Your Life Through the New Science of Integrative Medicine, Dr. Monti and Dr. Bazzan present a step-by-step plan for this next generation of medicine through evidence-based restorative treatments, nutritional science and healthy lifestyle practices. Artfully integrating cutting-edge technologies—fMRI brain imaging, bone density diagnostics and DNA sequencing—with time-honored approaches—loving relationships, walks in the woods and plant-based meals—they invite you to enjoy a fuller, healthier life in service to Plato’s holistic understanding that “the part can never be well unless the whole is well.”
