    people are much more aware of health but given the power of the brain its actually damaging them.

    This is driven by a Pharma industry and Psychiatry especially that seeks to continually medicalise many things that could be addressed by looking at life circumstances and stress. Add to this the stigma around emotion in Western societies as it is seen as badge of shame to admit you are struggling with something.

    Tom, I enjoyed reading the article you posted.
    I am 84 and remember doctors making house calls.
    And they weren't quick to recommend tests, surgery, or give pills.
    But the ones I knew did not know anything about Mindbody healing such as TMS.
    If they didn't know the structural cause of a pain, they didn't say it was fibromyalgia.
    They didn't say anything. Then our mothers became doctors and gave us castor oil or
    just told us we were okay and would get well or feel better soon. Their love and care
    was the placebo that healed us.
