Spiritual Medicine


"Spiritual Medicine has two components: Distant Healing and Self-care (that is healing by patient's own efforts). Distant healing is defined as any purely mental effort undertaken by one person with the intention of improving physical or emotional well being in another. In clinical practice, healing may involve a mental effort in or out of the healer's presence, with or without his or her awareness, and with or without touch. This broad definition would also include petitionary prayer or Du'a in which the practitioner generates a mental request for a particular outcome or that God's "will be done."
