There was a real neat article in the Military Times by Bret A. Moore.  The author argues going beyond talk therapy. Research and evidenced is discussed.

What did Bret Moore suggest?

“We need to fund studies looking at the benefits of meditation, exercise, recreational therapies and other noninvasive approaches to achieving and maintaining health.”
