HEALERS, MAGICIANS AND SORCERERS. WHETHER THEY SHOULD ENTRUST THEIR HEALTH?
At the moment, medical science has reached enormous heights. In fact, everything is possible. Transplantation of organs, increasing the missing limbs. And this is not to mention the ordinary treatment of gastritis and degenerative disc disease. With proper treatment, you can forget about long-standing chronic diseases and to feel young and healthy even at the age of 50. All the more strange that all this still was unable to abolish all traditional healers and mages who are willing to even cure cancer patients with sprigs of wormwood, plantain leaf and chopped the ears of a bat.
History tells us that in pagan times people really often resorted to otherworldly forces, wishing to rid himself of troubles and misfortunes. Witch doctors and healers were a special caste of people who owned the recipes of healing, passed on from generation to generation. However, with the advent of Christianity people began to pray to the virgin Mary and the Holy apostles, which partly could replace the ancient art of herbalism. At the moment, modern healers often offer a combination of services – a kind of Orthodox paganism. That is, they are treated by means of questionable potions in combination with the Church’s prayer. Of course, for anybody not a secret that among such “magicians” are a big part of Obyknovennaya.
But people still go to them. There appears to be some gradation of healers that somehow vie with each other in the degree of its clearness. The main reason for the unrelenting flow of customers is the faith. The belief in salvation and healing. People will believe anything, if only it gave them hope for a better life.
It turned out that even the State Duma Committee on health services of various kinds of healers and mages extremely confusing. The fact that such healing practices are not amenable to rational explanation and therefore to evaluate their effectiveness from the point of view of science it is impossible.
More recently, the deputies rejected the draft law, which envisaged the introduction of licenses for mages, healers and psychics. The proposal to issue official licenses of the workers pushed themselves magic magicians. Perhaps they decided to use their techniques under the strong wing of the medical institutions. However, the regulation of the occult and mystic services in the field of health considered completely impossible.
The bill mages, and healers are forbidden to treat people suffering from cancer, infectious, venereal, skin diseases, AIDS, mental illness, drug addiction, complications of pregnancy, as well as those that require surgical intervention.
