mind and body
A few years back Dana Reeves hosted a program called, "The New Medicine.' It explored the use of Reiki, acupuncture and other holistic healing modalities. It also showed that just using guided imagery -seeing yourself overcoming the medical ailment in your mind's eye made significant chemical and physical change in the body. Guess why these modalities, especially visualization is not used in American hospitals?? Lame excuse!! It does not fit into the schedule of the hospital day-the day is already full of labs, tests, Dr visits, meals, PT and OT appointments and coordinators don't know where to fit it in. What do you think of that one!
