There has been a great focus in recent years on alternative forms of healing apart from the main stream allopathic medicine.FAith healing is one of them. Do you believe in faith healing ??

Hi there , [i]Nobody knows the science behind these Faith healings and thats the reason ,few rationalists have difficulty in believing. But i feel there is something beyond science ,which has not been fully explored. If reserchers are able to make a breakthrough and could explain ,then it would do a lot good to Faith and other superhuman experiences which as of now is believed to be superstiotious . [/i] Cheers

I can't say that I personally do, but I know an extremely large number of people who do. Like my mother, she has only been to the doctor 3 times in her life. Twice to have me and my little brother. She had my older two brothers at home. My grandmother as well she broke her foot and within two weeks she was healed and walking on it.. and every customer I talk to every day!

I believe it works if the participant believes it works. Science has clearly demonstrated that our emotions greatly impact our health. If we are optimistic and happy and focused on healing our bodies are more able to heal quickly and effectively. Thus, if one believes in faith healing than they will be optimistic and happy and focused on healing and thus will heal faster. It is scientifically proven. The reason why this is the case is still not understood yet so whether or not this healing comes from God we cannot be sure yet but it definitely works.

Faith can influence the state of your heart and the attitude towards life,and the state of your heart and the attitude towards life, i think,can influence the determination that you fight with illness,so faith healing can work to some extent.

i do believe in faith healing. but i also believe in our usual medical healing by doctors. i said so because i have experienced it many times. a lot of times i was healed by my faith in God. i just ask for His forgiveness and whatever it is that is hurting me i ask Him to take it away from me. i dont know about the others.

I do believe that people can heal, but I don't believe that it has anything to do with faith. I think a lot of us have the ability to heal others, it's just an inbuilt gift that has become buried. I sometimes heal others, though only friends who ask me. I wouldn't say that I can cure people, rather enable them to heal themselves.
