6 Ways to Heal Your Inner Self

Julie Silver, MD, writes:

“One of the most important components of healing is recognizing the powerful connection between your mind and your body. I know this from what I’ve seen in my medical practice and in the research. Studies show that stress and negative emotions can cause a physical reaction (ever get a headache when you’re arguing with a friend?) that can slow your body’s ability to heal. On the flip side, positive thinking and feelings can help you recover, whether it’s from a sprained ankle, arthritis or cancer.” Read more: Ways to Manage Stress – How to Heal Yourself – Woman’s Day

Sports Injuries Can Heal Naturally If Done Right

Dr. Paul Aaron writes:

“This week, I saw a severe knee problem resolve—almost entirely—without surgery and without drugs.”

Does Prayer Heal Disease . . . Really?

“In medicine, we see the touch of God all the time, but it is called “spontaneous remission.” If it happens at a prayer meeting, then God gets the credit! Otherwise it is just said to be one of those inexplicable marvels of the human body.

Is there any science that tells us whether prayer is working or not? You bet!”

    Here’s a question: What medicine did Jesus and his disciples use to heal people–of blindness, deafness, epilepsy, the lame man, a hemorrhaging woman, etc.? And how would a God who is Spirit heal the men and women He made today, and with what? I’d be interested to hear any comments at all on the subject.

    Interesting. I’d like to comment on the 2nd quote: “This week, I saw a severe knee problem resolve—almost entirely—without surgery and without drugs.” and say that I’ve seen a severe knee injury ENTIRELY healed in 3 days without any surgery or drugs.

    This quick knee healing came through prayer alone. As the Bible says in Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
