Seven Most Famous Religious Healers in the Philippines

In today’s era, as the population increases rapidly, many diseases have been proliferating. Some are curable, some are not. And in the Philippines, where the government has limited support to its people’s health care, people turn to different alternatives to cure their different illnesses. One of them is turning to faith healers. These people, according to their patients have healed them in many ways than one. Especially for people who are at the terminal stage of their illness, turning to these faith healers is one of their first option.

In a country dominated by Catholicism, Filipinos under this Church are fortunate to have many religious healers. They are not just serving the Church and men, but have also included healing the sick in their chosen vocation.
