Medicine X 2015- Pritpal S. Tamber

In our world of lifestyle-related chronic conditions, aging populations, and increasingly expensive health care, enduring sickness has become the normal human experience. Rather than throw more health care at the problem - little of which works anyway - it’s time to ask ourselves, collectively, what we really want. Through the stories of a grandmother and a soccer player, Pritpal illustrates how a deeper understanding of people’s lives enables us to see health beyond pathogenesis, and hence be able to create it - an idea called salutogenesis.
