In brief: Spiritual health

The belief in, and engagement with, something meaningful to us and greater than we are, has complex and positive effects on our physical, emotional, and mental health.
Sometimes this may be religious, but it doesn't have to be. Dr. Harold koenig at duke medical center has an entire center devoted to studying this subject. See informative video: http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=xkig3fwblca.

Check out my book I wrote based on my experience of automatic writing at www.maygodblessyou.net. Another spiritual experience I witnessed was a patient's Dad who is wheelchair bound for years and was told that his condition was hopeless. I met his Dad last year and advised him to pray for healing and I'll do the same. After he left my clinic, his Dad started to gain strength, stood up and started to walk. Now he is walking with a cane. I noticed that my patients who have strong faith in a Supreme Being have higher tolerance for pain and are Less afraid to die. God bless you!
