Dr Oz did a show unlike any of his others. Doctor Oz interviewed Dr Issam Nemeh to find out Is He A Faith Healer Or Not? For years, Dr Oz has heard stories about this doctor in Cleveland who people come far and wide to visit because he has an unexplained ability to heal people through prayer and his touch. A large section of Dr Oz’s audience were filled with people who say that Dr Nemeh has healed them with his unshakable faith and his hands. Could faith be the reason why the unexplainable sometimes happens?
Dr Oz: Who is Dr Issam Nemeh?
Dr Oz said that Dr Issam Nemeh is a trained Anesthesiologist who has gained a reputation for healing with his hands. Nemeh works in both a medical office to treat patients with acupuncture and infrared treatments and he also works in church where heals people through touch and prayer. Some people were healed from conditions they never thought that they could overcome. One lady said Dr Nemeh cured her of MS. Of course, there are skeptics, but Nemeh said that everyone who has doubt should come and witness it themselves.
Dr Oz: Is Dr Issam Nemeh A Faith Healer?
Dr Mike Roizen is intrigued by Dr Nemeh and visited his church. Is all of this just a Placebo Response or some absolute gift? One thing is clear, and that is that people seem to feel better. Dr Issam Nemeh said that there are no guarantees that you will be healed. He has been called a Faith Healer, but he says that there are scientific explanations and so he prefers to avoid the term “Faith Healer.”
Dr Oz: Dr Issam Nemeh Review
Dr Oz asked Dr Nemeh how he heals people. Nemeh said that it is through connectedness. When you are in the right state of mind, G-d connects us together. He can feel things happening in the body of those he prays for, so he is not disconnected. Dr Oz asked everyone in his audience if they believe that faith can heal or not, and 86% said that they believe it can. Dr Nemeh said that even his own brothers (who are doctors) have gone against him, but he had to make a decision to go one way or the other and this was his calling.
Dr Oz: Spontaneous Healing
Dr Oz said that there is something called Spontaneous Healing when the body somehow heals itself, and we do not understand why it happens medically. There can be a variety of explanations including that the person was mis-diagnosed – or others believe that it is the miracle of prayer and touch from someone like Dr Issam Nemeh.
Dr Oz: Dr Nemeh Heals Lung Mass
Kathy said that Dr Issam Nemeh helped a mass in her lung disappear. She was coughing up blood and was not breathing well. She went to Dr James Kelly who did a CT Scan and saw that she had a bad mass in her left lung. Kathy went to a friend’s beauty shop crying and her friend told her to go see Dr Nemeh, so she went for a 2 hour visit of Acupuncture and Infraray Light Treatments. After her treatment, she said she took a breathe of air and could not believe how much air she was able to take in. She went back to Dr James Kelly two months later and he said that she was 100% healed. Kathy said that she always had faith, but this experience confirmed her beliefs. Dr Oz said that another theory is that Kathy had a lung infection and it resolved on its own (just to play Devil’s Advocate).
Dr Oz: Dr Nemeh Heals Lung Fibrosis
Another patient of Dr Issam Nemeh was a doctor herself (Dr Patricia King) and she got a deadly diagnosis of a Lung Fibrosis where you increasingly cannot breathe and there is no known medical solution. She was diagnosed in 1995 and Dr Oz said that most patients die within 5 years of getting the diagnosis. Patricia said that faith is a big component of healing and that western medicine cannot reverse scar tissue, but her scar tissue was reversed. Dr Oz asked her how she knows that what she had was not mis-categorized or that she did not have the wrong diagnosis. Patricia said that the doctors did a biopsy of her lung which showed a fibrosis, and you cannot call it something that it is not when you look at it under the microscope.
Dr Oz: Dr Jeffrey Rediger & Harm of Faith Healers
Dr Jeffrey Rediger, a psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School and McLean Hospital, said that there is no harm in believing that G-d can make you better as long as you keep two things in mind. One, you must not judge yourself or others if you do not get better. Two, both faith and medicine are great gifts and you should not think in the mindset of either /or. We are not just physical beings that need oxygen, we are also spiritual beings that need love. Science is only now beginning to look at the connection between love and healing. Just by thinking you will get better, can you really get better? Well, some people use the word placebo to explain things that we cannot explain – it could be faith, a mental state, misdiagnosis, or mind over matter.
Dr Oz: Prayer Healing Study
Dr Oz said that there was a Prayer Healing Study that was done and people from afar prayed for various patients, which had no measurable impact on the healing of the patients. Dr Oz asks patients all the time how they get better, and he is often told that it is through prayer. However, sometimes people pray and do not get better. How can Dr Nemeh help people to get better better than people praying for themselves? Dr Nemeh said that the only thing that is important is his state of mind and his love for everyone around him. Dr Issam Nemeh said that people often come in with photos of people who are sick, and they do not know that we are praying for them, but they get better anyway because we prayed for them.
