Overview

Seek Wisdom: The Modern Quest for Health and Sustainability by Keith Berndtson MD

In Seek Wisdom, the first book of his One Bodymind Series, Dr. Berndtson introduces a new approach to the care and prevention of chronic illness, with profound implications for health education, self-care, and the stewardship of living systems.

He shows how oversimplification of the physician's task is hurting patient care and limiting medicine's potential as a healing force in the world. With its problems mounting and no sustainability plan in place, humanity is in a bind.

He asks, "What might a planetary medicine doctor advise humanity to do?" In exploring answers to this question, his essays forge a new vision for health and healing - a call for unity around the lasting idea that wellness of the people, by the people, for the people, might yet flourish on the earth.

Synthesizing the insights of thought leaders committed to promoting the health of people and the planet, he lays the groundwork for a new type of social networking and cooperation, and gives it a bold platform in his wellness support website, onebodymind.com.

Seek Wisdom will change the way you look at the world - and yourself.

"Among the million or so physicians in the U.S., only a handful can also be described as both philosophers and futurists. Keith Berndtson, MD, is a serious contender for this select group. Concerned about the decline of our health care system and our steadily worsening health statistics, in Seek Wisdom, Dr. Berndtson offers a jump start to rethinking the way we approach longevity, good health, and the treatment of disease." - David Edelberg, MD, Author of Healing Fibromyalgia and The Triple Whammy Cure.

"Keith Berndtson provides us with compassionate and wise insight into the whole human person. No question presses upon moderns more deeply than this: What makes each of us unique, and how do we find true wholeness? This humane and revealing book contributes in a way that nurtures real flourishing. I welcome it with deep appreciation." - Dr. John H. Armstrong, President, ACT 3, and Author, Your Church is Too Small

About the Author

Keith Berndtson, MD, practices integrative medicine in Park Ridge, Illinois. In 1996, after ten years in family medicine and corporate health, he chose a road less traveled. On this path he came to realize the wisdom and value of the integrative and functional medicine traditions. He leverages his experience to explore the wider implications of a clinical systems biology approach to wellness.

His medical practice, Park Ridge MultiMed, uses functional medicine principles to evaluate and treat patients with medically unexplained and non-responsive forms of chronic illness.
Berndtson founded onebodymind.com to supply innovative online tools for people interested in a deeper, more effective approach to health education, self-care support, and the stewardship of living systems. The site is ground zero for a new social network that will help prepare the way for the modern quest for health and sustainability.
