The former terminally ill share their experiences and experiences, and also advertise the Philippine healers, the treatment of which has improved their health and prolonged life. Interest in them is warmed up by tourists, journalists, researchers, scientists. They try to understand what is happening and reveal the secret of their healing. Who is a healer? This will be discussed later.
Who are they?
By virtue of unconventional medicine, shamans, healers always believed. From time to time interest in them then weakened, then increased. This phenomenon is easily explained by the fact that desperate to be cured by traditional medicine refer to healers( this is how the word "healer" from English translates).Who are healers? Unlike clairvoyants and similar "healers", they use scientific knowledge, but perform all procedures with their hands, without using technical devices, devices and anesthetic substances. Analyzes and diagnostics are not carried out.
All folk healers are divided into five categories. First treat herbs and infusions. The latter enter the patient into meditation and heal with prayers. Some perform operations without a scalpel. The fourth group uses magic and is similar to psychics. Fifth - practice a regular massage. It is the treatment of injuries by Philippine healers that has become known all over the world and is of great interest.
A bit of history and facts
Filipino healers are known for a long time. Since the 30-ies of the last century information about them began to spread around the world. She came to our country much later.
The most famous Philippine surgeon was Eleutherio Terthe. His first operation took place in 1926.Instead of a scalpel, he used a knife. Operations he spent with his bare hands, leaving no scars on his body. How he did it - still no one knows.
Terthe helped not only the local population, but also the American military. Soon, director Ormond came to the Philippines. He was able to film the process of the operation and make a film, which was then shown in many countries. So Eleuterio became famous.
Since then, the activities of the Filipino healer have attracted the attention of scientists. Their opinions were divided: some believed that such operations can be conducted only by trained and dexterous hands, while others recognized the presence of mysticism.
Professor of Physics Steller, who had long observed the course of the medical procedure, rejected this version. He proved that the healer's actions differ little from the standard set of movements of an ordinary surgeon.
Later Japanese medicine professor Isamu Kimura joined the study. He did a blood test before and after the operation. As a result of the study, it was found that the composition of the postoperative blood had clots of inorganic origin. The doctor suggested that the disease materialized into lumps and left the body in this form. His words were confirmed by the healer himself: Eleuterio said that this is how the ailment transforms into bad energy and leaves the human body.
Scientists presented their research in articles, which led to the worldwide fame of Terte. Lines of sick people, journalists, scientists and simply curious onlookers began to line up with him. Enterprising fellow countrymen began to use the healer's popularity to boost the economy and founded the business industry. Now in the Philippine Islands, you can find many suggestions from surgeons-healers. Unfortunately, not all of them are real healers. Among them, there are a lot of scammers who are trusted by people, inspiring them to think about recovery under the influence of hypnosis.
Opinion of journalists on the activities of the
healers The journalists decided to tell the whole truth about the Philippine healers. They tried to describe the life and work of healers on the basis of their observation and experience of communication. Some of them lived in the houses of healers and were present at all operations. They believe that the healers have a gift, which has so far been little studied and does not lend itself to scientific explanation. Journalists saw how, after the usual massage, the hands of the healers easily penetrate into the person and extract the affected parts of the organs from there. Patients during the operation do not feel anything. Perhaps they are under hypnosis, the action of some drugs and drugs, or the autosuggestion force of very credulous and receptive people is triggered.
In addition to enthusiastic sketches and stories about miraculous healings, journalists show the other side of the coin. In their articles they talk about non-observance of basic hygiene and sanitary conditions: traditional healers can wipe their hands on the same towel, do not wash their hands after each patient, perform operations in the open air.
Reporters contacted some of the healed to find out whether a blood infection had occurred or whether the patient had received a new disease that could have been transmitted to him. Strangely enough, but the former patients did not find anything like this in their home. Moreover, they felt much better. The exception was people who fell into charlatans: their condition worsened significantly.
Statistics say that about ninety percent of healers' patients have turned to regular doctors for help on their return from the islands, since they did not help them with the Philippine healers, and in some people the condition only worsened. Five percent of the patients were really healed of serious ailments, and five percent of the sick were cured of a minor ailment that could be cured and improvised.
The history of the healer Alex Orbito: the experience of healing
The articles of the famous Baku journalist Sharif Azadov tell about one of the famous healers - Alex Orbito. The journalist communicated with Alex a lot, spending the whole day with him.
The morning of the healer began with reading prayers and saturating psychic centers with the energy that he was spending during the operation. He did not work every day and only about an hour. I took only adults, treated children with manipulations, because I was afraid that his strength and experience was not enough. Alex admitted that he received his gift as a legacy from his father, who was also a healer. Orbito began to practice at the age of sixteen when he discovered his abilities.
Patients Alex Orbito took in his operating room. It consisted of two different rooms, separated by a glass partition. In a large room, patients could be present and everyone who wanted to see the operation, and in the small room, the very mystery happened. At first, all present were reading the Psalms in chorus. Then the healer appeared and everyone fell silent. He took the Bible in his hand and read it for a long time. After the necessary mood, he approached his "medicines" - jars with oily liquids and cotton swabs - and "sanctified" them. Usually two nurses helped the healer. By the way, they have no uniforms: they performed the operation in ordinary clothes.
Alex Orbito rinsed his hands in one of the liquids and proceeded to treatment. By simply massaging and pressing on various parts of the body, his hands penetrated and extracted hernias, pieces of meat, bumps, tormented patients. The blood protruded, but there was not much of it: it resembled a thin pink trickle( like a small cut).Operations lasted no more than a minute. Patients did not experience any discomfort while their faces reflected calm and equanimity.
Treatment by means of alternative medicine Alex Orbito explained simply. He acted on psychic centers with the help of his energy and restored their working capacity, removing all unnecessary and "repairing" breakages in their structure. Tissues and blood vessels he did not sew, but soldered with positive energy. This took a lot of their own strength, so before the operation the healer prayed and adjusted for work for a long time. At this time he did not speak to anyone. After the operation, the healer renewed his energy balance for a long time.
The stories of Russian doctors who visited the
healers. People who want to try the magic of Philippine magic become more and more. Among them there are even notorious skeptics who want to debunk the myth of miraculous healing. As a rule, these are medical specialists who decided to turn to healers.
Mikhail Gershanovich Mikhail Lazarevich, MD, professor, a convinced materialist, went to the healer to test his work from the inside and to remove the basal pain on his left eye. The witch doctor tried to remove the tumor for a long time, but nothing happened to him. After a while she began to grow, and the professor had to urgently operate it in her native city.
Watching the work of many healers, Mikhail Lazarevich discovered that the same people act in the role of nurses and assistants in operations. In addition, almost all healers work as artisans in their free time.
Another doctor, Stanislav Suldin, decided to combine rest on the Philippine Islands with the removal of stones from the gallbladder, and turned to the healer. He performed the operation and assured that there were no more problems. But on his return to the homeland, the doctor performed an operation to extract gallstones.
Sergey Savushkin, a surgeon, for a long time was wound around the clinics, trying to eliminate the consequences of the accident. In the Philippines, his limp was cured in three minutes, completely restoring his foot.
Features of Philippine medicine and religion
Many people ask the question: "Do residents of the Philippines themselves turn to the healers for help?" Before answering it positively, it is necessary to understand the features of the healthcare system and the economy of the country. The fact is that most of the population lives poorly: many do not even have their own housing. They can not afford expensive medical care, so healers for them - the only way to stay healthy and alive.
The government is calm about the activities of the healers, realizing that these specialists take on all the responsibilities for medical care for the poor. The administration does not need to provide this category of citizens with medicines and insurance. Moreover, healers are referred to the category of psychosurgeons, as they affect the mentality of patients, combining the physical and mental. Such a philosophy is close to Philippine medicine, so healers are not forbidden.
The Philippine Catholic Church recognized the healership as a manifestation of the divine miracle. She gave her consent to the healing. But to be a healer, in her opinion, is a very difficult task: God takes away from the healer strength and health in exchange for this gift and the opportunity to heal.
With what diseases it is necessary to address to healers
According to statistics and opinion of many healed, healers successfully treat such diseases:
- benign tumors;
- malignant tumors in the initial stages;
- gastrointestinal diseases;
- cuts and fractures.
- clean vessels;
- remove stones from the kidneys and gallbladder;
- to correct the posture;
- eliminate cellulite and cosmetic defects;
- relieve phantom pain.
How to get to the healers and distinguish them from scammers
How to get to the Philippine healers? Today, getting a consultation or curing a doctor is simple: the Internet is full of reviews, travel agencies offer special routes, and the healers themselves advertise their services. All three ways are equally effective and will lead to the healer, but among this information it is necessary to be able to find really worthwhile offers and not to "run into" charlatans.
It is difficult to find true healers. Healers live in slums or on the outskirts. They have little communication even with the local population and do not like to talk about themselves. They do not set a fee for their services, allowing the customers themselves to decide how much they are willing to give for healing. As soon as the medicine men discover their ability to heal, they undergo serious spiritual and medical training, which takes decades.
If the healer asked for money for his work, gave a bloody show with the extraction of a large amount of "waste" from human flesh, prayed little and worked hard - this is a fraudster.
Method one: independent search for the healer
A good healer does not need advertising. But how can you find it for someone living on the other side of the world? First you need to know where the proven healers live and work. Mostly these are places that tourists prefer. One of these areas is Baguio. This northern part of the island of Luzon with amazing scenery and mild climate: a combination of warm weather and a cool wind make the accommodation unaccustomed to the heat of tourists comfortable. It is here that there are many Philippine healers. Unfortunately, most of them are charlatans. According to various estimates, only one in ten found healers is a real healer.
It is only possible to learn about healers from the local population, preferably from completely different and unfamiliar people. To do this, you need to know the language of the islanders, otherwise they will not make contact. Only in this way can you find the healers involved in surgical intervention.
Method two: special tours
Especially popular among tourists is the northern part of the island of Luzon. It is here that the industry of healership is well developed. But tourists are attracted by mysticism connected with this place. It is proved that many devices of helicopters and ships fail, while they are near. Local residents explain this phenomenon by the presence of a large number of island spirits who do not tolerate a foreign interference in nature.
But all this does not prevent enterprising locals from organizing tours to local healers. As a rule, these are innocuous suggestions related to the cleansing of the body with the help of potions, positive energy or a healing massage.
Method three: reviews on the Internet and advertising
It's no secret that most patients who turn to healers are easily inspired people who believe in mysticism, otherworldly forces, magic. Their power of autosuggestion is so great that even if they do not help, they believe that they have become better after treatment with the healer. Their opinion is unlikely to be objectively.
Nevertheless, among those who tried the act of the Philippine miracle, there are those who can lead a desperate person to a real healer. The reviews of the Philippine healers contain information about the exact place of residence or healer healing. Patients describe in detail what happened to them. Basically, these responses are positive. People provide information about the disease before the trip and after the operation in the form of documents, photographs. Reviews are supplemented by the positive opinion of the people accompanying them.
Many famous healers have opened their own clinics, and advertising their activities can easily be found in the media. June Labo, one of them, is still engaged in practice since the mid-1990s.
Philippine healers in Moscow
Healer Vergilio Gutiérrez, now living on the island of Cebu, was most famous in Russia. He came to our country and taught the most worthy disciples to his craft. Since then, many healers have visited Russia not only to pass on their experience, but also to treat other people. Some of them live here, continuing to heal with traditional methods for them. Vergilio himself comes to Moscow every year and is engaged in practice.
About twenty years ago in our country was organized by the Association of Philippine healers, which is now headed by the famous psychic Rushel Blavo. Healers live mainly in Moscow, conducting seminars and transferring the knowledge of alternative medicine to ordinary people. Particularly popular is manual therapy and treatment with stones, plots, herbs. These funds are similar to the known methods of traditional non-traditional medicine, therefore they are completely accepted by the Russian population.
The second famous place in Moscow where you can meet healers is the House of Doctor Vedov. An experienced Russian surgeon himself conducted about four hundred operations without a scalpel and annually hosts nine of the best healers of the islands.
Many healers permanently reside in other Russian cities: Tyumen, Tambov, Yekaterinburg, Tomsk. They are engaged in their practice and sometimes come to Moscow for the exchange of experience and healing.
So is it worth talking to healers?
It is difficult to answer this question unambiguously. First, in the treatment of non-traditional means you need to believe, without leaving even a shadow of doubt. In fact, it's not that hard. The world view of Filipinos and Russians is similar in some respects: both nations believe that there is a world of spirits, otherworldly forces and energy that can heal or destroy. Russian people often turn to sorceresses, wizards, wives.
Secondly, the treatment with hands positively affects only those who are already familiar with such techniques and experienced them on themselves. These are various types of massage, yoga, psychological gymnastics and practices.
Third, a great role is played by such qualities as self-hypnosis and susceptibility to hypnosis. They help to adjust the body to healing.
If all three factors coincide, then, on condition of applying to this healer, the probability of curing for ailment is very high.
