are you sure, Sbrinz? I healed my own piles by applying cream to my bottom
No, they are still there, I know they are in remission. You need a doctor with a soldering iron to actually cure you of the hemorrhoids.

There is a Swiss law against quackery, a nurse told me, she was married to a doctor (Qualified) and she is now over 60 years old, so it's almost certainly true. A person can make you feel better, give you a massage, advise on diet, recommend sport etc, but they cannot claim to heal your body. Whenever I asked my nurse for serious help, she sent me to a doctor, and explained why she couldn't treat me.

I really don't care if you don't believe me, I am not the one promising any healing. This Brazilian "Healer" doesn't claim to heal anyone either, he claims to channel God's powers to the patient,

Gleichzeitig behauptet er: «Ich habe noch nie einen Menschen geheilt, es ist Gott, der heilt.» Fragt sich nur, weshalb er dann als grosser Heiler verehrt wird.

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

Wow there really is a lot of negative feeling towards healers and energy workers. To answer some of the questions put down. In England I am part of and qualified with an association that was called the NFSH, National federation of Spiritual Healers. I trained for two years and in UK you can be referred to a healer from this federation directly from a GP. In Switzerland however there is not a registered government approved association yet. Though they hope to organise one later this year. Unfortunately the website is down at the moment which I am very sorry for. Sadly I cannot power a hot tub though I would love to be able to. I also have qualifications in anatomy and physiology, Biology, physics and chemistry. Do my qualifications make me good at what I do? Sadly no, As with many things you can have a lot of qualifications in you need experience to be good at. Some healers I have met have no qualifications and yet what they appear to be able to do is astounding. Thank you 3wishes for your comments. And no, It is not only English people I work with though it is easier for me to give feedback in English. The healing itself does not involve talking. I hope that has answered most of the questions but please let me know if not

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

Have you considered partnering with a homeopathist? My guess is that there is a lot of overlap in your customer base.

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

Hi Village Idiot,

I currently work with two Cranio Sacral therapists, a homeopath and two psychologists. But I would love to work with others also. Thank you for the suggestion

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

Such a cynical bunch!


There are other methods of healing than thru pure science and medical doctors. One has to have experienced it to believe it - sadly for those who have never experienced it.


I`ve had(and my Family have) absolutely incredible experiences in this field, that my very first choice of healing would be this. But ... also not easy to find a "genuine" healer. Mostly it dwells in the practices of Chinese medicine.


When a medical Team reccommend surgery as an only Option, and then one of These "Healers" does their thang, and the pain vanishes, and all is well - well, it has to be experienced first Hand. (excuse all the capitals, my pc is again going into it`s German mode) (it Needs a "PC Healer" hahahaa - sorry, I`m being fascetious )

What kind of qualifications? GCSEs?

Qualifications and professional organisations enable the public to differentiate between the genuine and people who are just in it for the money. If it wasn't a commercial outfit, then it wouldn't matter. But it is, and so it does.

Not that membership of the NFSH is any indication of trustworthiness. A friend of mine saw one of their members, looking for treatment for her autistic son. That quack prescribed Magical Mineral Solution (aka Sodium Chlorite, aka bleach...).

Oh well - definitely quackery then.

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

I must say that i think homeopathy, hypnosis, reiki, crystals and all of that stuff is complete nonsense mumbo jumbo hippy tree hugging rubbish.

However..

I also think that the mind is a powerful thing and if you believe in one of these things it might just help you. Ok it's not gonna fix a broken leg but for certain people and certain conditions, who knows?
I've had crappy blocked sinus for years and tried everything, ears popping and ringing, sniffing etc.. I keep looking at that ear candle stuff and thinking - it's crap - maybe i should try - no it's nonsense - but what if

For now i stick to the tried and tested whiskey!

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

Switzerland, or certainly this part of Switzerland have a tradition of "healers". They are called "coupeur de feu".

I wasn't in Switzerland but a couple of months before I encountered one of these..... Interesting experience.

Once again thank you for the posts. I am also a great believer in Whiskey. And thank you NotAllThere, you made my point exactly for me. It does not matter what qualifications you have or what organisation you are part of. Just being part of the NFSH does not make you good at what you do so thank you for agreeing with me and yes people are far too hung up on qualifications etc. In most cases I can only talk about and from my own experience. I had a car accident many years ago which left both my legs in a bad way (I was not in a car, I was run over by one). At first they were going to cut the right leg off and try to save the left but because of press involvement they decided it would be good publicity to try to fix me (I was over 21 so at the time I was thought to be too old to waste too much money on). Three of the best surgeons in the country were brought in, one from Scotland by plane to the hospital I was at (the Royal Gwent). A ten hour operation took place and they put my left leg back together with lots of metal and pins. Unfortunately somehow my foot was put on at 90 degrees. By everyones response I should now class all surgeons as Quacks because even with the best qualifications and and the best government organisations these mistakes still happen. They did attempt to correct it later but it is still at between 30 and 45 degrees out. No responsibility was taken and as I had signed the forms before my operation that no responsibility is carried by the hospital there was not a great deal to be done. Despite this I am very grateful to the surgeons who worked on me. I would not have survived let alone walked after two painful years of learning how to with my new feet angles. I do not think healing could have sorted that out and I still have great faith in the medical world. I would not allow my own experience to cloud the judgement of others.

Oh and John H, For the sinuses I would consider maybe going to see an acupuncturist. As you say some treatments fit better with some people than others. Maybe nothing will work for you and maybe it will. For me a maybe is still better than a no. And I hope you are drinking the whiskey not trying to swill it through your nose

Now you've given up smoking, they'll probably clear up - or at least improve after a few months.

And in future, when you get a cold, the blocked sinuses won't be so severe.

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

I was never a big fan of the various faith healing movements, but didn't have a terribly strong opinion. Then I read a fascinating blog post about the African Sangoma tradition and since then have had no doubts what so ever.

Either a particular practice survives scientific scrutiny for safety and efficacy, or it does not. It is disingenuous, and potentially dangerous, to claim otherwise.

Re: Healing, clearing and general energy work

It is all about better body awareness and stress reduction which can extend your life quite a bit. I am not a fun of reiki but I never tried. I don't have any interest to try it at the moment but I sometimes read and watch videos about chakras and some of it makes sense. This is ancient knowledge (if we should call it knowledge) we should at least try to explore. We can always somehow benefit from it. Some chakra strengthening techniques look more like scientific based psychotherapy and I can trust it more. I wouldn't take it literally but if you start thinking of it and give yourself 5 minutes to focus on what happens in your body then it is 5 minutes of pure attention and awareness just for yourself and this is reducing stress and helps to make you feel more at home in your body which is feels lovely and is priceless.

No, go to youtube, search mindfullnes meditation video and do it. Report results.
Body Scan Meditation is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daU-xneLA0g

An off-the-shelf version is Novartis Rhinomer. It forces the saline solution through under pressure.

Either a particular practice survives scientific scrutiny for safety and efficacy, or it does not. It is disingenuous, and potentially dangerous, to claim otherwise.

The Sangoma`s practice their tribal medicine, which is more a mind over matter thing to do with their tribal beliefs, nothing to do with actual healing, unless a co-incidence happens.


I once knew a Sangoma, who told me she`d given up the practice as it was not worth it ... the patient pays once to be healed, and keeps coming back until healed, or not, so she was very poor. She also scoffed at her own healing methods, saying the people did not have any "faith" anymore in the traditional healers.


Another lady consulted a Sangoma because she was not satisfied with the European doctors diagnosis of the state of her pregnancy. He`d told her to "resign her job and take it easy" as she was spotting and could lose the baby if she continued walking such vast distances to work.
The Sangoma told her the spotting was simply that she had twins and one was absorbing the other (!) - the "medicine" she was given was a cord woven from two different colour twines to wear around her waist, to ensure the two babies became one complete and healthy one.
Ja, she gave birth to only one baby, and both were healthy - despite not leaving her job and continuing to walk the vast distances.
Her faith lay in her Sangoma!


Mind over matter - it does work.
Once upon a time, I had my car radio stolen, and knew who had stolen it, so I hung two pieces of very dried out old meat on a bush next to where I parked my car at home, and told the guy working there that it was "Muti" from a Witchdoctor who`d said the person who stole my car radio would die.
Two years later I met this guy again, and he told me the friend of his who`d stolen my car radio had died two weeks after I hung the "Muti" on the bush.
Go figure. I was just trying a deterrent to future robbery! Not meaning it that seriously! Or was it just co-incidence?
