Research on Spontaneous
Remission in Serious Illness


by Dan Benor


Dear All

As you may know, some people with serious, medically incurable illnesses recover unexpectedly. People with cancers, multiple sclerosis, scleroderma, Crohn's Disease, fibromyalgia, and many other diseases have returned to health - with no medical explanation as to how they managed to do so.

Modern medicine has occasionally reported the occurrence of these "spontaneous remissions" but has not delved into them to explain how people recover without therapeutic interventions. I was astounded to read a book with an annotated collection of 3,000 such reports from around the world, with no mention in any of them of complementary/ alternative therapies or of the possible factors in the lives of the healees that might have contributed to these remissions.

We are collecting these reports for publication in the International Journal of Healing and Caring – online. You can see a summary of these reports online by clicking here.

I would welcome your reports and/or those of others if you have seen a remarkable recovery or know personally of someone who has had one.

We are searching in particular for those who have medical examinations and laboratory reports to validate the original conditions and the changes after the remarkable remission.

Your information will be kept in strictest confidence. If the evidence for the remission appears medically convincing, we may discuss with you the possibility of publishing a report that includes your information. If this were to be the case, no information would be shared without your written approval.
