Book Review – Integrative Medicine: The Return Of The Soul To Healthcare
by Stacey Chillemi, The Complete Herbal Guide
Integrative Medicine: The Return Of The Soul to Healthcare is an empowering, informative and motivational read. Bonnie McLean’s book, “Integrative Medicine,” provides readers with insights to understand how the soul of medicine is returning.
Mclean helps the reader understand how the science of medical technology and the art of healing, contemporary knowledge and ancient wisdom, East and West are beginning to work hand in hand under the umbrella of integrative medicine.
Mclean also helps the reader understand how Integrative medicine is the wave of the future and how it plays a vital role in good health and well-being. Most individuals do not realize that integrative medicine can help protect your mental health, improve your physical health, quality of life, and overall well-being.
In the preface, McLean talks about how many individuals don’t feel they are listened to or cared about. I myself have witnessed as well. McLean goes on to discuss how many people feel they are not receiving a nurturing human touch and how many doctors feel frustrated because they are unable to give patients the care, they would like to provide them with.
Bonnie goes on to discuss how many hospitals and practices have to conduct themselves as a business and they are unable to provide the patients with what they need due to the way our healthcare system is run.
I have witnessed this in my own life and it was refreshing to read Bonnie’s own experiences. It made me realize how many people go through similar struggles with the healthcare system. As the book continues Bonnie discusses insightful ways both patients, doctors, and the healthcare system can overcome these obstacles.
In the preface, Bonnie opens up and lets you into her world sharing touching moments from her life journey. She shares heartwarming stories from her own life including how she was raised by a physician (her father) and by a nurse (her mother).
She goes on to share how she spent the first twenty years of her adulthood as an RN. After witnessing what she calls a loss of soul in contemporary medicine, she spent the next thirty years in a search of the soul in medicine.
She explored natural medicine, Chinese medicine, psychology, energy medicine, and shamanic healing. With the usage of integrative medicine, she strongly believes that the soul of medicine is returning and she goes on in her book why she has come to this conclusion.
In Integrative Medicine: The Return Of The Soul To Healthcare, Bonnie McLean helps you understand with her words of wisdom how we can use the appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s own innate healing process.
Her teachings in the book give the reader an understanding that as long as you are open for guidance and healing then guidance and healing will make its way into your life.

The book gives them the ability to take back control in their lives, so they can experience happiness and live a healthy and productive life.

Throughout the book, Bonnie McLean provides a vast array of information that helps readers acknowledge the vital importance of integrative medicine and how it plays an essential role in people’s mental and physical health.
One important factor I acquired from reading this amazing book on integrative medicine was that it’s crucial for individuals to understand the power of integrative medicine and how it can positively impact their health and well-being and how we can incorporate integrative medicine into our daily regimen.
Creating a healthy lifestyle with integrative medicine, exercising, meditating, yoga and eating right can help enhance your quality of life and improve your overall health.
At the beginning of the book on page 29, Bonnie provides a powerful quote from Bill Frist – “America has the best doctors, the best nurses, the best hospitals, the best technology, the best medical breakthrough medicines in the world. There is no reason we should not have this in this country the best health care in the world.”
I can’t agree more. Some of our “new” therapies are actually the renewing of treatments from ancient times. Healthcare needs to acknowledge this and cover more of the costs of these treatments so more patients can harness its healing power.
Integrative medicine is not only necessary for well-being, but it is vital for each individual to receive it so they can function well. Sadly, most people cannot afford to visit hospitals and practices to receive these treatments and therapies because of the way our healthcare system is currently running. Many therapies are not covered by our healthcare.
However, many of the integrative treatments can be done in your own home with the proper teaching. Bonnie provides many resources so you can obtain this knowledge in her book.
How can we learn how to heal our bodies, improve our health with integrative medicine and transform our lives so we can have a life filled with good health, happiness, and productivity? Bonnie McLean teaches you in her book how to turn your life around with the tips, tools, strategies, and techniques that are easy to incorporate in your life and very self-rewarding.
McLean not only discusses how to use integrative medicine in your life, but she also shows you how to transform your entire life as you read this astonishing life-changing book.
Bonnie also helps readers understand how the soul integrative medicine is returning to healthcare and how you can make it a part of your lifestyle to help heal your body and improve your health.
Bonnie McLean’s approach to integrative health helped me realize that WE control our bodies. We can change the way we look, think and feel by making productive lifestyle changes using integrative medicine.
In addition, through reading this book I realize no matter what age you are you can transform your life and create the life you always wanted for yourself. A life filled with happiness, inner peace, good health and strong inner strength that can lead you to endless opportunities and the ability to reach any level of happiness you desire.
I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in improving their health and emotional well-being. Bonnie McLean’s book is excitingly packed with outstanding advice, tools, and techniques and I find Integrative Medicine: The Return Of The Soul To Healthcare a rewarding, motivating, inspiring and enjoyable read.
