Quick background info – My fiance was injured last October in a truck accident. He’s paralyzed from the chest down. His spinal cord wasnt severed completely but it was extremely crushed. The docs gave him 0% chance of walking agian. He has a “complete” spinal cord injury which means that he has absolutely no feeling/function below the level of injury.
I went to see a psychic on Sunday & she told me she does natural healing and that she honestly feels like she can help my FI with his injury. So I referred him to her and he went to see her today. His entire reading, she basically talked about how she honestly truly 100% believes she can help him regain function. She even told him she sees him walking down the aisle on our wedding day (but added that he might be using an assistive device..like a walker or cane). So, my FI is going to contact her tomorrow and make his first appointment for a natural healing session. We’re both super excited but, at the same time, trying hard not to get our hopes up. Although she (the psychic) warned us about that. She said something like “a lot of ppl would hear what I just told you about walking again someday and not want to let themselves get excited about it because they don’t want to be disappointed if it doesn’t happen..but do you know what that does? That lets in that little seed of doubt and that’s not going to help your healing process either!” So, who knows what’ll happen! My FI has been extremely positive through the entire process right from day one! When he was in the ICU, he looked at me and was like “well…I dont think we’ll be swing dancing at our wedding anymore babe!” [we were planning on surprising our guests with an amazing swing dance as our first dance and even bought swing dance DVDs to learn] and was making jokes about the injury lol. So I think that definitely has helped him…and me! If he were depresed about his injury and life after his accident, I think I’d be 10x worse than I am right now!
Anyway! I’m just wondering if any of you ladies have had natural healing done or know someone who has had it and if you could share your experience with us?

Hmm I would be skeptical. While I fully believe in the powers of non-western medicine (acupuncture anyone?) I would be cautious of a psychic who claims she can make your husband walk in less than a year when the doctors held out zero hope for him. May I ask how much she is charging for her services?
If you go through with it I would not get your hopes up. That way if it does work you can be extra excited but if it doesn’t work than you aren’t feeling a huge disappointment.

Three years ago I was diagnosed with terminal thyroid cancer (very rare for papillary carcinoma to be terminal, but I was 25 and in other wise perfect health so by the time we found it, it was everywhere). I refused to believe the doctor’s diagnosis. I kept an EXTREMELY positive attitude and found a doctor who agreed to take on an aggressive treatment plan than what others where comfortable with. It took 3 years to get a clean scan, but I finally got one.
I believe that one’s attitude towards life and their ailment has a lot to do with how well they overcome and beat the odds. Personally, I would be very skeptical of the psychic and I would focus my energy on finding doctors willing to take a chance on me.
If you do choose to go with the psychic’s treatment plan, I really hope things work out. 🙂

I agree with babyboo. Be very skeptical.
How much is the psychic charging for these “natural healing” sessions? There are bad people in this world that will take advantage of people in a situation such as your fiance’s.

She actually doesn’t charge anything, that’s the thing. She said she doesn’t feel right charging people who suffer from pain and are looking for relief from it. She herself has had issues with chronic pain so she knows what its like. She said she will charge whatever you feel like you should pay her.
And although the doc gave him 0% chance, they said “anything can happen.” Everyone’s body reacts differently to a spinal cord injury. There can be people who are paralyzed for decades and then gradually they start getting sensation back. There’s always hope. =]
Ive been to this psychic before and 100% believe her. She told one of my best friends that her friend who had just passed away (suicide) was in the room with their during her reading when my friend hadnt mentioned a single thing about her life or her friend who had passed. She described him to a T and explained why he hasn’t yet “passed on.” It was really eerie and creeped my friend out so bad. I can’t even imagine!

Well if she doesn’t charge anything, what would it hurt to try? The mind is a powerful thing and there are many things between heaven and earth that we do not know about. And I am a scientist!

@bluespurrs: We are definitely going to try it! =] I was just wondering if anyone had any positive (or even negative/neutral) experiences with this kind of therapy.

I have had AMAZING success with Acupuncture, I had a 3 herniated discs in my lower back causing a lot of nerve pain. However, I tried 3 before this guy that didn’t really help, you really need to find the real deal. I am fascinated about thi natural healing, please post how it goes!

What exactly are her treatments going to entail? Be very skeptical and protective, it’s hard to imagine, but there are plenty of people in this world that have no problem with taking advantage of people in desperate situations. I would be even more skeptical BECAUSE she’s not asking for any money right now.
I also wanted to add that there are plenty of “alternative” therapies that don’t involved psychics. For example, Boston Medical Center has a revolutionary program called the NeuroRecovery Network (a friend of mine worked there for a period). Be careful and protect yourself AND your fiance!

I’ve been extremely pleased with Network Spinal Analysis, which is gentle form of chiropractic and uses pressure points. I doubt my chiropractor would say she can cure paralysis, but it might help stimulate some nerve function.

I’m just wondering if most of you are skeptical because I said the word “psychic”? If I just said she heals with crystals, would it have been a different story? Because she does both as two separate things – she does psychic readings and she does natural healing as well, but not together.

I haven’t had experience with this – but I believe in the power of the positive thought.
When are you having a treatment? I’d be really interested in hearing how it goes.

@ChantelleyLace: Please be careful. I know you don’t agree with me on such things (I think we’ve had the psychic conversation in an old thread) but they’ve done studies related to crystals, and the results suggest that it is only effective insofar as the placebo effect – i.e., people feel it warming and report feeling what they are told they should expect whether or not they are actually holding a crystal, but there is never significant progress that can be linked to crystals.

I would be skeptical regarding a psychic performing this work. Like many others have said, I’m a big fan of non-traditional medicine and I fully believe that certain herbs and plants can help your body.
But I have a hard time believing a psychic can perform a miracle where a trained surgeon can’t fix something. If you said she heals with crystals, I’d still be skeptical.
My chiropractor practices a natural form of healing called Nutrition Response Testing; it involves providing your body with whole food supplements so it repairs itself.
But if you believe in this kind of stuff, you may as well give it a go. Plus if it’s free, it can’t really hurt you.
It’s a shame stem cell research isn’t available to your FI. There is some research out there regarding it–i’d put my eggs in a basket for something like tha.

I definitely think it’s worth a shot. Personally I know of one psychic I would absolutely trust, and my guess is it’s similar for you. If that is the case I wouldn’t worry about it. I don’t think she’s trying to rip you off or anything, especially since you can decide how much you want to pay her. I think that the power of positive thinking by itself makes a huge difference in recovery, so if you believe that this will work, then it will make a difference. I hope the best for you and your FI, and I’d love to hear an update after the sessions!
