Welcome to Faith
Healing at Natural Earth
Healing is the use of solely 'spiritual' means in treating
disease, sometimes accompanied with the refusal of modern medical
techniques. The term is usually used by some Christians who believe
God heals people through the "laying on of hands". Faith
healing has not scientifically been proven effective, although its
practitioners often cite much anecdotal evidence of cases where
it has been successful. Doctors often ascribe any success to the
placebo effect or to spontaneous remission: some people will heal
with or without treatment, and it is generally natural to credit
the most recent treatment for the cure (this form of reasoning is
called post hoc ergo propter hoc).
healing can pose serious ethical problems for medical professionals
when parents decline or refuse traditional medical care for their
children. In some countries, parents argue that constitutional guarantees
of religious freedom include the right to to rely on alternative
healing to the exclusion of medical care. Advocates of conventional
medicine argue studies have shown faith healing no more effective
than a placebo, making it unethical to rely on, though advocates
of spiritual healing argue there exist methodical and bias issues.
Doctors as a rule consider it their duty to do everything that they
can in the interests of the patient. In consequence, where they
judge medical treatment necessary to save an individual's life or
health, and balancing the question with legal and privacy concerns,
they may act contrary to the patient's or parental wishes. In 2000
in Britain, a government ruling allowed a child, against much protest
from the parents, to be treated by doctors.
people who resort to faith healing as a natural health and healing
modality do so in cases of otherwise incurable disease. However
there are groups that believe in faith healing as the sole remedy
for any health problem.
The term is occasionally used in connection with Christian Science,
though its adherents maintain its practice of healing is methodical
and does not rest on faith merely.
