Medicine today is experiencing a booming interest in alternative treatments of all kinds; as replacements for and complements to traditional medicine. At the same time, there is a resurgence of spirituality - people going back to the religious roots of their childhood or discovering new forms of spiritual awareness. Much is being researched about the effects of this spirituality on medical patients. This subject covers topics as diverse as prayer, mysticism, self-empowerment, reiki, aroma therapy and music therapy.
"A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
- Proverbs 17:22, NIV.
