When I saw her just a week ago, she told me she did not visualize at all, but worked at maintaining a positive attitude. My friend believes in the medical system and that is good. We have to do what is right for our own self.
I also told her of two people I knew that healed their own cancers, one by prayer and the other by visualization and meditation. I do not know if she held much stock in my "stories", but they are true. I believe we can heal ourselves more often than not.
"Spontaneous Remission An Annotated Bibliography by Caryle Hirschberg and Brendan O'Regan
In 1993, the Institute of Noetic Sciences published Spontaneous Remission: An Annotated Bibliography. In this work, the authors, Caryle Hirshberg and the late Brendan O'Regan, defined spontaneous remission as "the disappearance, complete or incomplete, of a disease or cancer without medical treatment or treatment that is considered inadequate to produce the resulting disappearance of disease symptoms or tumor."
Because there was no standard reference for the field of spontaneous remission before that time, the first task of the Remission Project at IONS was to catalogue the world’s medical literature on the subject. As a result, it assembled the largest databse of medically reported cases of spontaneous remission in the world, with more than 3,500 references from more than 800 journals in 20 different languages.
While the authors believe that the phenomenon of remission is relatively rare, the data from their research suggest that it may not be as rare as previously believed. It appears that the impression of rarity is at least partly an artifact of underreporting, but research shows there has been an increase in the number of cases reported in the last few decades."
