Many believe there is no scientific evidence that supports the value of spiritual healing. Daniel Benor, M.D., reveals a world of science that few knew existed. Included in this groundbreaking book are 124 scientific studies showing that spiritual healing works! Many of the controlled studies look at the effects of spiritual healing on humans; others look at its effects on plants and animals. Some of the most interesting laboratory studies demonstrate its effect on water and other materials. You'll read how many of the world's most successful healers, such as Olga Worrall, Oszkar Estebany, and Harry Edwards describe their methods and subjective experiences. A foundation is provided for understanding the mysteries inherent in such practices as laying-on of hands, focused prayer, Reiki, and Therapeutic Touch. Book jacket.
