The author states that he was a skeptic, but that personal
experiences and research have convinced him that spiritual healing really exists and is a potent therapy. The book contains 124 scientific studies supporting various methods of spiritual healing.
Many well-known healers, such as Harry Edwards, Ethel Lombardi, and Dr. Ursula Thuberg are mentioned and their methods and approaches discussed. In 597 pages, the author seems to have touched all bases in providing proof that spiritual healing works. It is more than a book. It is an encyclopedia.
provides definitive scientific validation of spiritual healing. It
represents an incredible amount of comprehensive work in different
areas of healing. And it is an example of outstanding scholarship and
research. I believe the deterioration of our medical care system makes
it imperative that we learn to heal ourselves and others for many
problems for which we do not need conventional medical care. This book
& provides good evidence that many of us can be healers. In his Foreword
to this book, Larry Dossey, points out that "Modern medicine will change
dramatically,"and "perhaps the most important area in which radical
change will occur is in our understanding of the nature of consciousness
and its role in healing." This book is a major contribution to our
understanding of the role of consciousness in healing. As a
microbiologist. I particularly appreciate the information provided about
work with bacteria, yeast, fungi, algae, and protozoa. This information
is an introduction to a "new world" of microbiology. It is certainly
food for thought that should motivate more such research in
Benor has collected most of the scientific data available on alternative healing, passed it throught the filter of statistical objectivity, submitted it to the same rigorous analysis that standard medical interventions are submitted to - and the resulting argument stands on its own: we are not asked to believe, but simply to open our eyes and see. After reviewing this material, the only possible ethical conclusion is that we all have an obligation, as health providers, to integrate these principles in the treatment we offer our patients: no doing so will one day be considered medical malpractice.
