    Role of Spirituality in Holistic Healing

    November 16th, 2013

    Healing is a process that can take time especially when the disease is something like cancer. Many people across the world do suffer from cancer and they also do take necessary steps and treatments to deal with the problem. Let us make it clear at the very beginning that by writing on holistic healing we are not trying to advice or suggest that you do not consult the doctors or stop taking regular medicine, but we are only trying to suggest an complementary way to improve your healing rate if you find it useful.

    We will also like to make it clear that on this website mainly dedicated to medical issues, some of you might find this as an odd topic but still there is so much discussion and happenings on this that we thought it would be better to introduce our readers to this concept of holistic healing as well. Some of the concepts here may not be easily understood by someone who hasnt been at all into spirituality or things like meditation or prayers, yet we would suggest everyone to at least read it once before thinking it is not for them. We have also provided links to some spiritual concepts in case you would like to study them further, yet we will remain focussed on the theme of our website and will not go stray too much.

    The discussion on holistic healing can be best started by taking a look at the power of prayers. It is said that blessing and prayers can sometimes be more effective than a regular medical treatment. We in this article will try to see whether it is actually true and do medical treatments can be supplemented with prayers.

    Is There Something Known as Holistic Healing?

    Basically the concept of holistic healing includes the entire persona of the patient unlike pure medicine where the physical body alone is given prominence and drugs and medicines are prescribed based on the chemical composition of the elements and their effects of disease causing microbes. Yet there exist many instances where this logic seems to have been defied.

    There have been many cases in medical history that are considered as miracles. The doctors give up all hopes and then all of a sudden the patient shows signs of recovery. In some cases patients also revive and recover even after they have been declared dead. We know this is unbelievable but it is actually true and it does happen. The medical teams also call these miracles. Some also term them as near to death experience. Some people who have huge will power and determination to live can come back from a near to death experience too. We will now try to explain how this concept works.
