Overview

Tapestry of Health artfully synthesizes the complex world of healthy living into a set of clear principles in guiding you to feel your best and thrive at your highest potential through evidence-based integrative medicine treatment of body, mind and spirit.


Transforming the way you feel, think, look and thrive requires a health care approach that integrates all aspects of your well-being, including the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, and nutritional. Doctors Monti and Bazzan lay out, step-by-step, how to gain and maintain long-term vitality by integrating a broad range of restorative medicine, nutritional science, and healthy lifestyle practices. This convergence of time-honored approaches and cutting-edge technologies offers new preventions and cures while maintaining the fundamental principle that the parts cannot be well unless the whole is well.


As clinical and academic leaders in the emerging medical specialty of integrative medicine, Drs. Monti and Bazzan have devoted their careers to developing wellness strategies that can transform the way you feel, think, function, and thrive. Their methods have become increasingly more profound as evidence mounts for the need for a new multi-faceted healthcare approach. One that integrates all aspects of wellbeing—the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, nutritional, and more. We are at the start of an incredible convergence of time-honored treatments and leading edge technologies to take us into the next era for healthy lifestyles, and Tapestry of Health offers a pathway towards them. Integrative medicine is preventive and also curative. Rooted and also futuristic.
