Lame Story Alert! Prevention Mag “Awards” Integrative Therapies

News flash:  Yoga and meditation are good for you!  So says Prevention Mag in the December issue’s Integrative Medicine Awards.

OK, it’s not as bad as the last lame story on women and sleep meds, but it’s seriously annoying. Prevention names the complementary and alternative medicine therapies, like meditation and yoga, that are “good.” Nice of you to notice, PRVTN editors! Feels like a scramble to catch up with the well established trend. And it’s just a weird way to package health service. On the plus side, I like the health insurance information and the love for Joan Gussow.

A real win? CAM modalities highlighted in every issue.
