The Faith Factor by Dale A Matthews
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Can prayer help heal what doctors and drugs alone can't? Dr. Dale Matthews, armed with the best clinical and scientific data, confirms what many patients have long suspected but many doctors don't acknowledge: faith and religious practice can be valuable medicine. In this comprehensive book, Dr. Matthews, a leader in the field, seeks to revive the ancient connection between science and religion, restoring them to their original roles as the twin traditions of healing. The neglect of religious values and practices in medical settings has serious implications - not only for doctors, patients, and national health policy, but also in the treatment of hypertension, drug abuse, depression, cancer, heart disease, and more. Solidly grounded in the latest scientific evidence, The Faith Factor is filled with remarkable case histories from Dr. Matthews's own practice, where he prescribes both faith and medicine, prayer and Prozac.
