10 examples of mind over matter


"While we often think of our bodies and minds as two distinct entities, it turns out they are much more entwined than we might assume. Researchers are continually finding evidence that the brain has a distinct power to manipulate the body’s physiology. As these 10 examples show, the mind/body connection can work in our favor or detriment, depending on our knowledge of a situation and our ability to control our thoughts....."
I doubt that most dualists believe the mind and body are distinct to the degree of neither affecting the other. They just believe that physiology is more subordinate to the mind, while materialists tend to think the mind is subordinate to physiology.

And most those examples are fairly uncontroversial. So I wouldn't call the bulk of them "alternative theories".
