Spiritual Prescription for Healing
Faith, Hope and Spirituality are all part of healing and recovery combining to create Holyistic Medicine.
Medicine is more than surgery and prescriptions. Outstanding physicians encourage and instill confidence for success in their patients. Don’t let your physician discourage you or make you lose heart. Sometimes skilled surgeons and physicians are not skilled in patient communications including bedside manner. Know every major surgery or illness is filled with moments of potential and even actual spiritual transformation.
Health-related crises produce windows of fear, vulnerability and susceptibility, sometimes calling into question everything pursued or achieved at a point in time.. A serious illness promotes a crisis of overwhelming doubt, but can also become an opportunity for revelation unlike any other experience in our lives. When the air is knocked out of us, we grasp the meaning of breathing.
Every patient wants his or her recovery to be exceptional – the fastest and most complete ever. Don’t be afraid to want it, to make it happen. Patients who believe they can cure themselves are usually the ones who do.
“The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs…and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11
