Spontaneous healing usually occurs when a patient who is considered beyond all medical recourse does a complete and complete recovery in a way that most doctors can only describe as miraculous. There have been many documented cases of spontaneous healing in patients struggling with terminal cancer and other serious, incurable ailments. Doctors do not quite understand what causes spontaneous healing, but they think it may have something to do with the patient’s mental and spiritual condition. Patients who experience spontaneous remission of a deadly disease are often patients with a deep spiritual practice. Many doctors believe that these patients also tend to share a deep will to recover, even after medical science has declared all the alternatives exhausted.
Many doctors have a theory that true healing extends beyond the physical world of the body. Research seems to suggest that strong negative emotions, such as grief, can negatively impact the immune system and damage health. Some doctors have pointed out that today’s medical model, which focuses mostly on treating the physical body with medication and therapy, may lack some of the most important holistic components integrated into past medical traditions.
Research and anecdotal evidence seem to suggest that healing depends not only on physical therapy, but on psychological and spiritual health. Patients who have experienced spontaneous healing often perceive themselves as spiritually united with a cosmic force sometimes described as the universal mind. Some patients may understand this universal mind to be a deity, but specific religious beliefs are not considered necessary for spontaneous healing to occur. Doctors suspect that the most important thing is that patients undergoing spontaneous remission feel like entities connected to a larger, universal whole.
Patients who experience spontaneous remission from a terminal or incurable condition often show great amounts of courage, hope, optimism and faith. Some doctors have found that patients who refuse to accept the verdict in medical science, and continue to seek coverage even when doctors have given up, seem more likely to spontaneously recover. These patients are often more likely to take an active role in their own recovery, form strong relationships with physicians and other health care practitioners, and seek support from family, friends and other patients. They can seek out and try out unconventional treatment options, or make major life changes, to create the best possible environment for recovery.
