Alternative Medical Help: Praying for Health

There are many people that belong to a religion.  The fact is that about 95% of Americans believe in God.  When a person is sick or in pain, it is very common to pray for health.  Many wonders do this work?  There are studies today that are committed on the accuracy of prayer for health.  The alternative to traditional treatments can be used to help a person in both the physical and spiritual aspects of life.  Studies are now looking at if prayer can be used in place of other medical procedures or if it is used in connection with the traditional ways.


It is logical to say that prayer can help with your mental conditions.  However, the belief in a higher power and heaven will give you a more positive outlook on life and your medical progress.  Relieving stress in the mind is going to make for better health decisions.  The people that pray are going to have a larger support group of people who are also of the same religious belief, and it will bring a sense of community to the person that is praying.  All of these can help improve overall health.


One question is if prayer can help physically and bring healing to the body?   The answer according to my experience is “yes” It has to do with how much faith you release that healing take place. We by a bottle of water or milk for example and put it to our mouth and drink because the label says so but had faith in the company selling the product and consumed something that we our selves have not tested. That is drinking by faith similarly trusting God for healing is substance of things hoped for.


With many of the different alternative therapy options, advocates will say that it is not going to hurt anything.  This is true for sure.  Praying does not cost anything, and it takes little time.  When used with typical medical procedures it can only help with a person’s health.  The medical field was started in ancient times as a type of religion and with many doctors and the nursing staff as the roles of religious leaders.  In the world today, and in most hospitals there are still employees who are chaplains, or the clergy of a church who visit the patients if they want.


You need to discuss this with your doctor and religious leaders so that you have the best course of action for you and your medical problem.  If you are using prayers, it will make you feel more positive about your condition and you should continue to do this.
