My answer to Can you cure illness with your mind?
Answer by Nature Crazy:
Yes. The Human Genome Project which gave birth to the field of epigenetics has transformed the way we understand biology and medicine. Science has now shown us that the human body is not just a biological machine but more of a vibrational energy force, governed by quantum physics, hence the success of the placebo effect.
As a result energetic medicine, meditation and prayer are now finally becoming recognized by western medical science and even some hospitals are recommending daily mediation or prayer and are even allowing Reiki practitioners or Acupuncturists to work on patients in the hospital for healing purposes.
And while there have been a plethora of studies and reports that are consistent in suggesting the potential measurable health benefits associated with meditation, prayer, or spiritual interventions The spontaneous Remission Project which was organized by the Institute of Noetic Sciences is the biggest scientific support of these types of healing actions. It has indexed the world’s medical scientific findings on the subject of spontaneous remission which has resulted in the most extensive repository of medically reported cases of spontaneous remission in the world, with more than 800 journals in 20 different languages.
To date they have collected over 3500 case studies reported in the medical literature about people who have undergone spontaneous remissions from apparently “incurable diseases.” Most of the case studies revolved around people with Stage 4 cancers who either declined conventional treatment or were given treatment deemed by conventional doctors to be inadequate for cure. But the Spontaneous Remission Project also includes case studies of people who had remissions from heart failure, autoimmune diseases, HIV, and even a gunshot wound to the head.
The Human Genome Project has showed us that genes can be repaired by positive action and tells us that these people were able to heal themselves by releasing suppressed emotions, increasing positive feelings through meditation or prayer, following their intuition, embracing social support, deepening their spiritual or consciousness energy connection, taking action in their life to correct issues they have never confronted before, and if applicable to their situation, correcting trauma they may have experienced in their life at the time they developed the disease.
