i totally agree with you. whilst we were living in england, we became interedted in "spiritual healing," or what in the us is called "the laying on of hands." just for fun, there is an association of jewish healers in england, headqyartered, i believe, in kentish town.
anyway, when i was learning about spiritual healinh, i asked my teacher about using spiritual healing for a broken bone. she told me that one should always use that which is most appropriate for the illnessd and that a dr could set the bone much more effectively and quickly than we could with spiritual healing. she emphacised, however, that the healing process would be quicker and less painful if spiritual healing was used. some studines backed her up on the last statement.
bp is both psychological and physical. i believe that using all mehtods appropriate, including abiding faith in you god, will help you to live with and to eal with this disease.
