What's In A Name? Wellness and Wikipedia

Talk:Wellness (alternative medicine) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"Nobody 'owns' anything here. We're carrying on a discussion to try to come to a consensus on how the page should look. We now have 'Wellness' as a disambiguation page. After giving the matter some thought, I really don't think there is anything ambiguous about the term 'wellness'. It's a New-Age term and has little, if anything, to do with classical reductionist medicine, which is primarily concerned with sick people. Therefore, I don't think the disambiguation warrants a whole page of its own. It can be accomplished in the main Wellness article with a line like this one at the top:
This is an article about Wellness as that term is commonly used in alternative medicine. For a classical medicine perspective, see 'Wellness (medicine)' "
