Beyond Mainstream Medicine: Dialogue Towards a New Paradigm for Health

“With their publication, Beyond Mainstream Medicine, Thomas Hardtmuth and Richard House have presented a small masterpiece for which one can only be grateful… Particularly inspiring is the clear description of a necessary paradigm shift in medicine, in which each and every one of us can actively participate. For at the center of this new paradigm for health is the individual human being with his or her special possibilities to strengthen his or her spiritual, emotional and physical health and thus his or her complex immune system.” Michaela Glöckler, M.D., from the Preface.

In Beyond Mainstream Medicine, Thomas Hardtmuth, M.D. and Richard House, Ph.D. dive deeply into the very foundations of human well-being, exhaustively detailing what is wrong philosophically and clinically with the current prevailing biomedical paradigm of health and disease; how these shortcomings have been highlighted in the course of the Covid crisis; and what changes need to occur for the radical re-founding of a genuinely holistic understanding of health, illness and healing to occur.

“Thomas Hardtmuth and Richard House agree that mainstream bio-pharmaceutical medicine is in need of urgent reform, if not a revolution. In this searching dialogue, they dive deeply into the most fundamental assumptions and ontologies of illness, health and well-being, and offer pointers for how health systems need to change. Unmissable.” Dr Christian Buckland, Psychotherapist.
