Do you believe it will heal?

That was what my grandmother was asked by my great uncle when my grandmother was just a little girl. She had warts on her hands (she was a farmer's daughter). Her uncle rubbed her hands, said something under his breath, and then asked if she believed they'd be gone. She said Yes. About a week later they were gone. Her brother had the same thing, was asked the same thing and said No. His did not go away so quickly. Coincidence and / or luck? Maybe. Quite Possibly. A cousin of my grandmother's was prone to nose bleeds. A few miles down the road lived a woman who supposedly could stop bleeding. She was rang up and the phone as held to the ear of the cousin. Lo and Behold the bleeding stopped very soon after. Coincidence and / or luck? Maybe. Quite Possibly. My Great Uncle was supposed to tell a female the words he used to heal before he died. However, he developed alzheimer's and died without saying anything of it. Was he a medicine man or some sort of voodoo practitioner? Who knows. I never heard of any harm being done by the words he uttered. We aren't real sure what he did say, but according to my grandmother it was a verse from the bible. It's up to you whether you believe in the power of healing, or whether you think it was all coincidence and luck. Me? Oh I won't tell you what I think.

I have heard of warts being helped by what you believe. They are caused by viruses and what we believe can improve our immune response. What we believe can make us healthy or make us sick. Nosebleed, I am not so sure about. My husband has had problems off and on all of his life. Eating healthier and having a more humid room helps. Taking vitamin C helps.Not sure words will help in this case.

You are right about what we believe either making us better or worse. I am not sure about the nosebleed myself as I wasn't told about any changes of location or temperature in the room etc.

True. There is a lot of things we simply don't understand and can't scientifically explain.

@ScribbledAdNauseum It would be nice if we had some answers though.

If your grandma said "no", then she would not get healed. It is as much her faith as the faith of the healer. I think the law of attraction just proves this point.

The Law of Attraction is a good theory. Manifesting Good by thinking positively.

Are you saying the outcome (remedy) doesn't rely on the belief a person has?

I have no idea what to believe - but maybe it was magic.

Everyone believes differently on this. I have my own thoughts on this, but I'm just amazed it happened truly.

They say that words can either build (heal) a person up, or tear them down.
