A woman who had been confined to a weelchair for 23 years was allegedly cured by a British faith healer.

A video of Delia Knox standing up during her visit to a faith healer has become a hit on Youtube with over 200,000 views. "I am in awe at seeing the power of God not just in my life but all over the world as a result of this miracle", she said.

"She was paralysed from the waist down when a drink driver ploughed into her car on Christmas Day in 1987."

Wow Rocketgirl, kudos for you getting out of the your chair and going through the nightmare of PT to walk again. I know how painful it is, been there, done that. I was only in the wheelchair full time about two months, but I was doing PT almost the whole time. I have Multiple Sclerosis so it relapses and remits. The PT folks didn't think I would walk again, but my doctor did because I was in a lot of pain. I did end up walking with a cane and a walker. I was lucky cause I do know a lot of MSers who are in wheelchairs with very little mobility in their legs and arms. Most of them are... [More]

A common misconception is that "nerves don't heal". Peripheral nerves, that is those outside of the central nervous system (CNS), do heal--In fact, even in humans they heal pretty well (much better in some other animals). The nerves are able to do this by "sniffing" out certain spots on neuromuscular junctions which contain laminins in the basal lamina of muscular sheath. A kind of "X marks the spot" deal. If this woman did something like injure the sciatic nerve or saphenous nerve before it innervates lower extremity musculature, its entirely possible she w... [More]

Copasetic, I am impressed with your knowledge of MS, but we are talking about a supposed miracle done by the Christian God. Why would God cure her and not my friends. I am sure how you said she was "cured" is what happened. I just get tired of people who take advantage of people who are disabled to promote their religion or a supposed cure which has no scientific bases.

My response to this and your PM; No, I'm a medical student and nerves are one of the first things you study in medical school. Followed by diseases of nerves. MS, Myotonia congenita, Myasthenia gravis, Leukodystrophies, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, etc are pretty big topics during that block. No I agree, I don't think its a miracle. For starters if there's nothing to hide, why not make the medical history available for people who know how to sift through medical histories to verify the claim. Obviously, that would ruin the miracle--Methinks. I thought you were genuinely... [More]

I'm not saying all these faith healers are frauds or real but my current pastor who was on oxygen from about 35 years of smoking in his younger years was "healed" at a Benny Hinn sermon. Now no problems at all, his doctor can't explain it either. actually uses him as a question to all of his new doctors, gives them his old medical records and has them try and explain why this man is even still alive. So far no medical answer.

Just remember - just because a doctor cannot explain it, it doesn't mean it must be a miracle....just saying...

Benny Hinn is nothing more then a lair and a cheat. To use him as something credible means your not credible. Benny is a con man that steals from the weak and personally I think he should step in front of a bus. People in my home town where scamed by the man and he should be put in jail. This video was taken not 20 km from me.
