Healers like to work alongside the medical profession to offer further and complementary treatment to patients. Healing encourages the body and mind to start self-healing. In this state, the patient can often make more sense of their situation, think more objectively, feel stronger and more able to cope.
Historically medicine separated from healing (rather as surgery was separated from medicine) but nowadays they are slowly reconnecting. The Doctor Healer Network was set up to promote this process. WNHF is very keen to promote a highly professional organization that will be acceptable and comprehensible to the wider medical world and work with the medical profession wherever possible to enhance this reconnection.
