Quicklink: US Army Using 'Spirtual Healing' To Combat PTSD

Today's Quicklink comes from the Wired blog. Noah Schactman reports that:

The Army just unveiled a $4 million program to investigate everything from "spiritual ministry, transcendental meditation, [and] yoga" to "bioenergies such as Qi gong, Reiki, [and] distant healing" to mend the psyches of wounded troops.

Sure, we could try Reiki and acupuncture or we could, you know, not send people to kill other people for no good reason. I bet that's pretty reliable in reducing incidence of PTSD.

Some people would argue "War is necessary to keep peace."

Which if you ask me, is totally contradictory to itself, but meh.
