Darwin, Thomas J.
Argumentation and Advocacy, v36 n1 p35-49 Sum 1999
Discusses how "mindbody" medicine has become the most prominent version of alternative medicine in the United States. Notes that it advocates an equality of patient and physicians in the deliberative process of treating illness and maintaining health; it also argues, on scientific grounds, that the body is a vast cellular democracy, providing a heuristic for effective healing relationships in medicine.
