Sandy Edwards, author of “Healing in a Hospital: Scientific evidence that spiritual healing improves health”, had no sign of a natural healing ability, yet still decided to be a spiritual healer.
After training with The Healing Trust, a non-religious UK charity, she approached a senior consultant at a city hospital and offered to give healing to his patients. Within 10 years of starting this voluntary healing work, Sandy had instigated the largest medical research trial of healing in the world. The clinical research study was led by a Russell Group university and funded by the National Lottery, with two research papers being published in medical journals.
The compelling research results demonstrated that healing has the potential to benefit anyone whether they are in pain, sick, stressed or depressed. Case studies added to the evidence. Many of the research trials she references dispel the myth that healing is only placebo.
