Daniel Benor, MD. states in his book, Healing Research: Holistic Energy Medicine and Spirituality, in which he reviews 155 controlled and published studies, "(it) leaves little doubt that PSI energy healing is a potent therapy".
A recent study, in which I participated, has generated a lot of excitement in the complementary health community and is being called landmark. It was designed and overseen by the NIH and Larry Dossey, MD, and was published in the December 1998 issue of the Western Journal of Medicine. The study was on: "Distant Energy Healing in a Population with Advanced AIDS". The results showed that Energy Healing played a significant and positive role in the healing process. Specifically, the study reports, "they acquired significantly fewer new AIDS-defining illnesses; they had noted decrease and/or elimination of various secondary diseases; they had lower illness severity and required significantly fewer doctor visits, fewer hospitalizations and fewer days in the hospital." Since opportunistic diseases are seen as 'the real killers' of AIDS patients, due to the patient's lowered immune systems, these results are considered highly important.
