Last September, I treated a young man who stated he had two problems. One, he has MS (multiple sclerosis), and two, he has a ruptured disc in his low back. He has been doing a great project that is going to help a lot of people, but has been physically limited, mostly because of his back. After he reported to our group about his project, someone at our meeting asked him about his back. And this is where I came in.
During the break, I asked him more about his back, and then said, I can fix that.
He looked at me with a quizzical look on his face, and asked, “How long will it take?”
Oh, about 45-50 minutes. Then his face became really surprised.
And so I added, Well, maybe we should allow at least an hour, depending on what else I find.
He was so unbelieving (I love doubters), but agreed to meet with me that afternoon. An hour after I began the treatment, I told him that I was finished. He said, “It doesn’t feel like you did anything.”
I know. That is how it is. But I know that you are better, because of the things that I felt. I am just taking tension off so that your body can do the work of repairing itself. And, I know what an amazing God we have, and what He can do to heal our bodies.
This young man said, “I hate that kind of theology – God CAN heal, but does He CHOOSE to?”
Well, I know what I felt, and your body is different. When you stand up, you will either say, ‘wow, I am so different’, or in a week or two you will notice that you just don’t seem to have that same type of pain. It doesn’t matter to me, because I know what I did and what I felt, and I know that you are different.
After I thanked God for the gift that he has given to me, for being able to see our bodies from his eyes, and for being his healing hands here, the man stood up, and started jumping around, “Oh, I am so different! I am SO different!” I just smiled.
Fast forward to January. I saw this young man again (we live in different countries in Asia). He said, "I don’t know what you did to me, but I am so different. My body feels like it did when I was 12 years old. I feel great! But I still have this pain in my leg.” When scanning him again, I was drawn to his right kidney. I never question these things anymore, as I have learned just to trust my hands, and I just treat what I find. His kidney was tipped forward about 60 degrees. After taking the tension off so the kidney could go back to its normal position, I asked this man about water retention, especially around his middle. (He has a slight build, but retains a lot of water, not fat, around his middle). He said that this has been a problem, but he has ignored it, as it has not been as significant as his leg and back pain. And he has had no back pain since I saw him in September. So I started to treat his portal system, starting at his spleen, and working towards the liver. And I kept getting stuck, just to the right of midline. When I started to look further to see what was going on there, I found this HUGE scar.
What is THIS?
“Oh, when I was 5 months old, they did surgery on me, because my intestines were folded back on itself.” OK. When I started to release this scar... WHOAH!!! It stimulated his leg pain!!! His same leg pain that he thought was coming from his back was actually coming from this old, old scar. And that had also been pulling on his kidney, and a host of other places in his body. He was amazed! I was amazed! He had consulted the premier MS specialist in America, and they said the leg pain wasn’t coming from his MS. He had consulted the premier back specialist in America, who said that this pain wasn’t coming from his back. But he hadn’t consulted the Great Physician – the One who Knows All. The leg pain was coming from loads of scar tissue that had built up from a surgery that had been done more than 30 years previously!
I released more scar tissue, then taught him some things he could do on his own. I look forward to the next treatment, next month, to hear about what great things have already happened, and in anticipation of what great things will happen, and how this young man's life is changing. And so that you don't get the wrong idea, I am just an ordinary person, doing an ordinary job... who happens to work for an extraordinary God.
