Faith and Healing


Mindfullness and Meditation

In 2010, Fadel Zeidan and a team of researchers from University of North Carolina published a study of “the effects of brief mindfulness meditation training on experimentally induced pain.” I asked Zeidan, now based at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, to tell me about that first study and its findings, and explain how his research has progressed since.

God's Medicine Man

Noble Red Man (Matthew King)

Are Miracles Real?

Paul Pearsall, Ph.D. by Paul Pearsall, Ph.D. Medical tests confirmed that I had been rescued against all odds from a virulent Stage IV cancer that had eaten away my bones and left me dying in agony.

Believing in Miracles

Believing in Miracles

by Marilyn Innerfeld.

Healing Power of Faith

Harold Koenig, Harold Koenig, M.D.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona M.D., Lewis Mehl-Madrona M.D., Ph.D.

  I trained as a conventional physician. I have also studied Native American healing for more than twenty-five years. I have walked with feet in two different worlds for my entire medical career.

Healing the Body by Healing the Mind and Heart

by Ron Roth, Ph.D. with Peter Occhiogrosso. Things happen in our lives because we believe in our subconscious mind that they should be happening. Yet when something bad happens, like an illness, you may say to yourself, "How can this be? I haven't been sitting here asking to get this disease."
