Healing the Sick

"...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." Mark 16:18

It's an extraordinary calling. Not only are we to minister to the soul, but also heal the body. Jesus performed healing miracles everywhere he went. Sometimes when Jesus healed, he resorted to using more than just words. As an example, He mixed mud and spittle to heal the man born blind.

In addition to praying and believing, we may be called to use other tools to assist in healing:


  1. Prayer and fasting - Some sicknesses won't leave except with prayer and fasting. See Cleansing or Surgery book for healing fasts like the Lemonade Diet.
  2. If you have anger, resentment, or contempt toward another, it may be an obstacle to healing. Go and make amends with that person.
  3. Forgiveness - He who releases others will himself be released.
  4. Faith in Jesus Christ - "Go thy way; thy faith has made thee whole."
  5. Quit worrying - Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you.
  6. Take the scriptures like medicine. Let them fill your heart. Pray in joyful expectation of healing.
  7. Laying on of hands - "They shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover."

And finally, an unusual and effective technique that we have successfully used - Electrocleansing. It increases blood flow, kills microbes and activates the body's electrical system to help bring about healing. We believe that the electrical energy applied to the body through the contact pads intensifies the healing energy that takes place with the traditional laying on of hands.

Ultimately all healing comes from God. But I would not want God's healing to be limited to praying and waiting. We are also called to knock, seek and ask.

We do not know all the intricacies of why Electrocleansing works. For my wife, Rachel, Electrocleansing was the method God used to heal her of Cancer from DES exposure, Lyme disease, and Gingivitis. May God be glorified.
