Researches show that people who have groundless fear and apprehension about health issues are more likely to fall sick and people who have greater will power and who believe in fate are more resistant to sicknesses. It is also known that people who have faith and tranquility are more responsive to treatment than people who have no faith and who have a lot of stress. The reason is that, apart from the chemical and material drugs, spiritual inspirations, a persons point of view with regards to sickness and life in general are important factors in strengthening a humans immune system. The more people are open to spiritual suggestions and have belief in fate, the stronger their immune system becomes and the more resistant they become to sicknesses.
It is certain that the good health of our thoughts, our emotions, our soul and our heart do have a positive effect on the health of our body. For example, when we experience events that affect us deeply or when we are very tired, our immune sys ...more

That the Quran is the truth and medicament for the believers. The non-believers have severity in their ears and the Quran seems closed and incomprehensible to them. they are being talked to from a far distance ,and they dont understand,Fussilat, 44
For the believers, we bring down things of medicament and mercy form the Quran. The Quran only increases the damage of the tyrants. al-Isra, 82
It is stated that the Quran is all by itself a source of medicament because the Quran promises a healthy body by treating the soul, heart, emotions and senses.

There is enormous growth in all areas and all branches of science all over the world. All the work has contributed quite a lot to the material and spiritual development of humanity. There are productive works being carried out in the fields of astronomy, genetics, physics, chemistry biology, medicine, etc. Some of the related work concerns only certain groups of people of today but some discoveries concern all times and all people. Discoveries related to medicine and health are the most important ones.

Ultimately it is our mind that make us living in this world with a smile till our death, unfortunately we indulge in unwanted things that is available in plenty and aspire it without knowing the side effects. which put us in bad state of mind results in health problems.
all health problems is originated from the mind alone hence it can be tuned to perform better by adopting believing what we do in future so that it will not go against our will to better ourselves.

For example, when we experience events that affect us deeply or when we are very tired, our immune system weakens and we can fall sick more easily. Good signals are sent to our body when our mind, soul and heart are in a good state. So, we stand stronger against the flu and the cold. When the opposite is true, we are more inclined to become sick. The more negativeness we face in our family life and at work the more likely we are to fall ill. When we fall to depression or when we are tired and exhausted spiritually, falling sick is inevitable. (Henry Dreher (1995).

Today, modern medicine has started to accept those truths, though not completely. We can already see that in the near future, modern medicine will bring that concept forward ...more
