Spiritual Issues
In one of my Premed forums in college the speaker said that 75% of the medical problems she treats are related to spiritual problems. I read a book a few months ago called A More Excellent Way by Henry Wright. The book tells about the spiritual problems that cause specific physical problems. I was skeptical at first but the Lord confirmed to me what Mr. Wright was saying. Here's how:

A Testimony
Whenever I go home to NY I am faced with almost unbearable allergies. I dreaded the prospect of taking allergy medication for the whole year that I would be home on my sabbatical. A few days after I arrived home I was trying to get to sleep but hives inside my mouth had kept me awake for hours. Finally I asked God if there was any truth to the book, was it fear that was giving me allergies? Immediately God showed me an area where I was not trusting Him. I confessed that fear to Him and asked Him to give me victory over it. As soon as I finished praying my hives left along with all my other allergy symptoms. I have not had trouble since except for a few times when I have taken my cares back into my own hands again.

Mr. Wright seems to feel that all sickness is the result of spiritual problems. We know this is not always true. When Jesus healed the man born blind He said that his blindness was not because of his sin or his parents sin but for the glory of God. I have found a web site containing some of Mr. Wright's teaching. Healing in Body, Soul and Spirit
