Not normally discussed, but the average person in Australia will consider that healing and health on the physical body involves:
- A physical cause (including microorganisms) – in other words, something that can be witnessed visually or through technological methods (e.g. microscopes, lab tests, X-rays, MRIs, etc)
- Something physical needs to be applied (either force/manipulation or something taken intravenously, injected or oral/cavity administration)
- The application must be done on the physical body itself, in some way and in real time
- The application has usually been known to create an effect on the physical body/psyche of others, either through historical anecdotes or research testing
And in most cases, this remains to be true.
And then there are those ‘other’ cases.
