“My wife, Kyra and I have been patients of Dr Frank Lipman’s for 4 years. During that time we have often sought his advice and treatment for a wide variety of illnesses, aches and pains. We have always been impressed with his knowledge and caring, not to mention the results!
It’s great that people who might not be able to see him in person can take advantage of his vast experience and expertise with one easy-to-understand book”
“Frank Lipman is the kind of doctor that truly cares for and about his patients. He treats each one as if they are the most important person in the world. Reading Total Renewal, we see what makes Frank so special, he cares for the heart, soul and body. His passion to reach out and touch all is found in this book.”
Dr. Lipman is my main medicine man–a caring doctor who fuses the ways and wisdom of eastern and western medicine into a holistic practice. This book has everything you need to know to care for yourself–body and soul. And, it’s accessible, intelligent, wise, generous, hip, warm and organic, just like its author.

“Total Renewal is loaded with exactly the kind of information everyone needs to get well and stay well.”
Larry Dossey, MD
We once believed that the job of a physician was to “do” things “to” a patient and “make” him or her well. That view is now quaintly out of date, as science has revealed the importance of conscious intention and choice-making on the part of patients. The doctor is no longer (and never was) the benevolent dictator in health. He is off the pedestal, and in his place stands a new model represented by Dr. Frank Lipman. Dr. Lipman’s vision of the new medicine wisely emphasizes patient responsibility and doctor-patient collaboration. No one is more knowledgeable and capable of elaborating this form of medicine than he. Lipman’s vision is humane, practical, effective, and scientific.

This book is an extraordinary resource—a gift to us from Dr. Lipman. There is not a person who will not feel better once they begin to follow its tremendously important recommendations. Dr. Lipman has developed an incredibly clear, well-organized system for helping each of us achieve optimum health. Fascinating, well-resourced, practical—this book represents a quantum leap forward in pulling together state-of-the-art knowledge in some of the most important and overlooked principles of healthcare. As our planet’s health continues to be compromised, and the pressures of an increasingly difficult world confront us, this book shows us a path to wellness. It should be required reading for every medical student, healthcare provider, and patient in America.

Dr Robert Thurman
“Reading Frank Lipman’s Total Renewal definitely inspires you to take the plunge into the “total renewal” program for improving your own health and ability to enjoy life. Lipman’s approach is intelligent, balanced, and realistic, while still creative and comprehensively integrative. Most important, Total Renewal helps us understand our own bodies and minds, giving us a better basis for understanding various medical approaches. It is a book you can turn to again and again, with pleasure and benefit.”
