Dr Oz: Reconnective Healing – Miracle Or Hoax?
Dr. Oz discussed a form of alternative medicine that has many medical providers feeling very skeptical. While some people believe in the power of Reconnective Healing, others are not so sure. See what Dr. Oz had to think about this controversial form of energy healing!
Dr Oz: Alternative Medicine Cures Cancer?
Dr. Oz said that Reconnective Healing is a controversial treatment method and one that many of his colleagues would never consider, but he believes it needs to be discussed. Eric Pearl, a Chiropractor, explained that Reconnective Healing is a form of energy medicine that he uses to heal patients who are suffering from wide range of health issues. He is adamant, however, that it is always recommend that patients continue with the medical treatment that they are receiving.
Dr. Oz feels that this type of therapy can help with minor issues and stress, but he is not so sure about more serious health concerns. Eric Pearl told Dr. Oz that just like with medical treatments, 100% of the people will not always receive 100% of the benefits from his healing 100% of the time, but he has seen some amazing situations where people have overcome major health issues or disorders. He shared a story of a young child with Cerebral Palsy who was suddenly able to walk, talk and even run and another where medical tests showed cancer tumors, but after his treatment they disappeared.
Dr Oz: No Data To Support Reconnective Healing Works
Dr. Oz told Eric Pearl that he would like to believe that this form of energy healing really does work, just like many of his audience members, but he said he just has not seen any data to support that fact. Dr. Pearl responded by saying that he has trained around 75,000 practioners around the world, including about 15,000 who were medical providers, and his treatment method is being used by those providers in clinics and hospitals.
Dr Oz: No-Touch Therapy Heals Cerebral Palsy?
Dr. Philip Ralidis, an emergency room physician, explained that he and his wife brought their youngest child, Brian, to Dr. Pearl because Brian had been born prematurely and had a lot of health issues, including Cerebral Palsy. He shared how stunned that he and his wife were when after just a small amount of Dr. Pearl’s no-touch healing his son was walking practically normal when before he had some trouble doing so. Dr. Eric Pearl added that the child had no idea what to expect since he was so young, so this was definitely not a placebo effect, as some would argue.
Dr Oz: Reconnective Healing vs Acupunture
Dr. Keri Peterson told Dr. Oz that while she is open to alternative medicine and recommends massage and acupuncture to her patients all the time, but she is just not sure about Reconnective Healing because there is such a lack of good research. Dr. Oz wondered the same thing, especially with so many people trained in this therapy method. Eric Pearl said that there are a handful of studies, but he recognized the need for doing more peer-related studies in order to provide western doctors with more solid evidence that his method works.
