ARLENE GREEN


2002 CONFERENCE PAPER


There has been a growing interest in the scientific community over the last few years in exploring the role of spirituality in the healing process. There have been over 1500 studies of the effect of spirituality to health. At least half of the 80 medical schools in the U.S. are offering courses on spirituality, and some specifically on “spirituality and medical practice”. Conferences on spirituality, prayer and healing are being held at some of the most prestigious medical schools in the country. Psychic and spiritual healing are gaining new credibility in contemporary medical circles as well as governmental agencies. The National Institute of Health(NIH)is funding studies on spirituality and healing. Many physicians and hospitals are participating in double-blind clinical trials of spiritual healing.
