Dangers of Alternative Ways to Healing
Dangers of Alternative Ways to Healing
How to Avoid New Age Deceptions
by David Cross
This book explains many forms of alternative therapies. It covers what they are and provides clear guidelines on how spiritually safe or unsafe they might be.
The authors point to the early history and principles of alternative healing methods. This helps the reader to understand the spiritual origins of new age healing practices. Many of these practices, including reflexology, yoga and acupuncture, to name just a few, have seen a rise in popularity even amongst some Christians. But are these healing practices spiritually safe and what are the consequences?
This book highlights the dangers of alternative healing methods. It also provides positive steps you can take towards true wholeness and well- being in our lives. The teaching in this book will help those who have been involved in alternative therapies themselves and want to free from the effects.
This book is part of Sovereign World’s ‘Truth & Freedom’ series based on the renowned teaching program from Ellel Ministries International.
“This book is so good. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to arm themselves with knowledge. It clearly spells out the dangers without being over-bearing. Highly recommended.”

The main gist of this book is to ask if there may be unseen side effects with some alternative remedies. While we are avoiding chemical intrusion into the body, could we be allowing spiritual intrusion instead, which stores up spiritual bondage for us in the future? They argue that this is indeed the case and give many stories that will certainly open your eyes to new possibilities if you are a Christian! The book is well researched and balanced, with comparison between the Bible and the fundamentals of many specific complementary therapies/remedies. They believe that a Christian takes themself outside of God’s protection when they do things like this and their bottom line is that the practice of some of these therapies can give a foothold for non-Christian spiritual powers to influence the person’s life in an unhelpful way. It also has a chapter that goes step by step through what you can do about it (for yourself or someone else), with some example prayers.Sections include: Is there a life force? Where does the power to heal come from? Who is the founder (this is answered for a number of therapies, and often the founder was heavily into the occult). What if the practitioner is Christian? The difference between a therapist and a medium. Healing the body or the spirit.
I like the style which is quiet and respectful, yet pulls quite a punch. There is a useful checklist of questions to ask about a therapy, remedy or exercise regime, to see whether it may have adverse spiritual side effects.A very valuable book.

Information we shouldn’t neglect to consider when it comes to choosing the people we allow to speak into our lives, our families lives and decisions regarding our health.

This book clearly spells out the dangers associated with ‘alternative medicine’ without being overbearing or ‘superspiritual’ in any way. An important book to read for believers as the issues addressed are currently all around us. It will help you understand how to stay safe in today’s world without becoming fearful of anything. The clear style helped me absorb the material and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to every Christian in today’s world!
