Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The battle between "real" and holistic medicine was dramatized on a weekly, 60-minute basis in this PAX Network series. Peter Strauss headed the cast as Dr. Isaac Braun, eminent head surgeon at a prestigious Ohio hospital. Braun's rigid, rules-are-rules approach to medicine is spectacularly challenged by a new member of the staff: Dr. Rachel Griffin (Larissa Laskin), who in addition to being a stalwart advocate of "alternative" healing processes was once Braun's most brilliant protégée. Scheduled to run for 13 weeks (with the option for more episodes if the producers were able to stretch their premise past the first season), Body and Soul premiered September 16, 2002.
