Philippine Faith Healer

Post New Topic

First, I would like to thank everyone for contributing to my question.
Overall, I have a healthy body. High is 180 cm (5.10 feet) and weight is 72 kg (158lb). In my lower spine there is a nerve that causes pain in the area of the lower back all the way down to the right leg. The doctors in the hospital did all the possible tests already but diagnosis came out different from different doctors.
Next week I will fly from Bangkok to Manila and from there looking for a Philippine “Faith Healer” If anyone has an experience with one of them or is willing to give any information I would like to thank you and maybe in return I could give you any information about Thailand.

There are may reports in the internet about if Philippines “Faith Healers” are real or not. So please don’t discuss this topic here. I would like to try and I’m asking only for help to find one whom I can trust. Thank you again, a

There are some Filipino faith healers that I have visited are amazingly gifted and there are others that are fakes that will try to scam you.

The good ones do not charge a fee and may see several hundred people daily. You may stand in line for hours.

Most of them do not speak English and are not educated. They discover their abilities to heal at an early age and usually quit school.

They can have some bizarre explanations of your condition. Just pay it no mind.

Your conditions sounds like sciatica and it sounds like the MDs are trying to milk you. Really, it's easy to diagnose.

I'll give you a hint about sciatica. Think about a goal you have that is being blocked somehow. Often that is the cause.

In the case of genuine sciatica, acupuncture or chiropractic has a 30% chance of helping you. You gotta figure out what goal or desire is being blocked. Putting this 2+2 together is sometimes enough to heal the condition when you have your aha! moment.

I've seen Bennie Hinn. He's quite extraordinary. Plows them down like tin soldiers....."H-E-A-L !" He's very successful, about a 100 million dollars, so far. Why not turn on your TV and just save some money. You can use black and white TV, as well. (You must touch the screen)

Faith Healer is a pretty broad and vague term. Christian, holistic, natural? Go to Siquijor, they live far back up in the mountains and have practiced their craft for thousands of year. Psychic surgery by a Catholic Priest has been shown on American TV. Many other types. Asian medicine can heal many things modern medicine can't. Herbal healing is widely practiced in Philippines. I am a practitioner and can heal many illnesses modern medicine can't. Colds, flue, viral or bacterial can be healed instantly with certain herbs. Not magic, just herbal medicine.

MCYRCPA I am interested in talking with you, as I have fairly bad Diabetes Type II. Kidneys not in good shape. Blood Sugar A1-C is good. Blood Pressure moderately OK. Not bad but could be better.

I would recommend Chinese medicine for your condition. They treat the cause while modern medicine treats only the symptoms. I have seen Chinese medicine cure diabetes many times. They use herbal remedies that are quite effective.

Darkfader….I respect you, but do not get involved with this 'faith-healer'. He will take every nickel you possess. You are being lied to.

"Faith Healing" is a generic term that implies that a person can be healed by faith. Even scientists and regular medical doctors realize that having an optimistic outlook will generally aid in recovering from illness while pessimism will adversely affect the same situation.

However, I will call anyone who claims "I am a practitioner" who can "Colds, flue, viral or bacterial can be healed instantly with certain herbs. Not magic, just herbal medicine" an outright liar and a fraud.

It sounds to me like you need a chiropractor and they are nigh on to impossible to find outside the USA. That nerve is the sciatic nerve and is being pinched between 2 vertebrae.

Try going to this site. Meds only mask pain while not addressing the actual cause.

I did some more research after recalling that I had seen ads for American trained Filipino chiropractors.

gelynch52ph I had the exact same injury. If you have not already done so, got to an orthopaedic surgeon for an X-ray and opinion. I went to a chiropractor and his treatment only worsened my pain. If a disc is ruptured, it requires extraction. That’s what helped me. I hade an 85% recovery. I posted this before. Not sure what happened with that.

I had sciatica for 5 plus years so I feel your pain. My calf would tighten up into a huge ball that felt like a rock and pain was 4-7 constantly. Stretching would help some but after many years the only thing that got rid of the pain was a spinal epidural injection. They inject anti inflammatory medication & pain meds with a needle in between the two disks causing the disk to retract and come away from the nerve. Good advice from others here as well. Be careful with Chiropractors and if you tell them their issue most won't even touch that section of your back until you have had a X-ray and MRI.

Thank for all your answers.
Since August I am visiting a healer. He told me that it will take weeks and not months until I will feel better.
At the moment it is too early to talk about the result of the treatment.
