HRH is a post-modernist?!

JRSM article by Prince Charles talks about his integrated approach to medicine and health. Includes too much of the spiritual and complementary for my liking but at least he quotes George Engel (eg. see previous post). And HRH knows that his is a wider definition of integration than is commonly used, so hopefully he won't undermine such an approach. However, he seems to have been taken in by psychoneuroimmunology and stress causing shortened teleomeres. The overenthusiastic  optimism of Paracelsus doesn't justify HRH's promotion of the irrationalism of alternative medicine.
