MILWAUKEE – Dr. Anne Jackson, a three summer alumna and current pulmonologist, is under close watch lately by the American Medical Association for reportedly writing prescriptions of positive affirmations to her patients suffering from respiratory illnesses.
According to reports, Jackson’s patients with moderate to severe cases of pneumonia were given prescriptions that advised them to say that they feel “happy, healthy, and terrific” out loud in front a mirror every morning, and to follow it up with jumping jacks and a cold shower.
Jackson denies that the positive phrase prescriptions were the only treatment offered patients. The doctor explained to reporters that patients were also given a PC, provided with Og Mandino books to read, and reminded that the answer lies behind the next door.
At press time, Ruth Cartwright, 87, was flatlining with only half of her “
Sizzler Health Thermometer” poster filled up, hanging on the wall behind a stack of “Advanced Sales Health” CDs.
