New Age Medicine

I am surprised to find New Age terms — positive feelings, visualization, journaling of fortunate events, recall of positive events to summon them into the present moment — in medical journals and contents provided to patients such as patient newsletters. For example, below is an excerpt from a newsletter for patients suffering from psoriasis..

Recall the positive.  Think of the details of positive and fortunate events in your life, and how you felt in the moment.  Doing this can bring those feelings into the present moment.  Keep a running list to refer to when you need it.

Yesterday, I also happened to see an announcement of of a thank you note writing program in the bulletin of the church I used to attend. This seemingly innocuous activity is a subtle way of introducing Christians into New Age practices.
