Mind and Body Medicine: Is Prayer an Alternative Treatment?Ralph, Betty; The College at Brockport (2018-07-01)My research involves exploring Mind and Body alternative medicine. Through a literature analysis, I will examine the relationship between prayer and healing. Research shows that most individuals who have been hospitalized either believe or have prayed for improved health. If there is a significant relationship between prayer and healing, it is necessary to ask the following questions: When should prayer be offered? Should it be planned? Should prayer be a choice? These are questions that would need to be taken into consideration if this treatment is to be implemented.
