  1. This is an interesting post. true, some people are blind to superstitions and seek the faith healing for contagious diseases. The funny part is,most of the channels in India, has a series of episodes in faith healing. to me, one should have the faith to heel from anything, be it physical or mental.

  2. I have always been sceptic of faith healers but this was a new perspective from you on dealing with them differently when it comes to mental illness. It’s a very positive approach as your story mentions but what if they are not willing to support and refer to a psychiatrist?

    1. That’s a huge no. If anyone tells you to obey him and not visit a psychiatrist then stay as far away from this person as possible. They won’t be any help at alp

    1. Hey Mayuri, It is true that sometimes faith helps but it must not mean that we end up ignoring our medicines for it. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

  3. I quite liked the approach of the psychiatrist. There has to be an all inclusive, holistic approach to cure of a patient. The religion and faith may act as a placebo, but it can strengthen the actual treatment.

    1. Exactly! If faith helps someone, we must not tell them they are stupid. If it helps them, we should let them follow it. As long as they dont start telling people to stay away from doctors
