Medicine & the Supernatural

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - March 13, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. Allan J. Hamilton, Marc Salem

Brain Surgeon Dr. Allan Hamilton discussed his experiences with spirituality and the supernatural and how they are manifested in the lives of patients. In one case, a woman with a brain aneurism was placed on a heart/lung machine during surgery, and there was no blood flow to her brain. Yet, afterwards she was able to recount exactly what happened during the operation. Where were these memories stored?, Hamilton pondered.

He described his own healing experience with an Indian medicine man who determined that the pain he was undergoing was caused by not letting go of the spirit of a little boy who had died in his care. When people or animals are close to dying, Hamilton said he has often observed a waxy, yellow light almost shining off their body.

Dr. Hamilton also shared some helpful rules for when you or a loved one goes into the hospital. Among them:

Never underestimate luck-- good or bad.

  • Find a doctor who cares about you, someone that can serve as an advocate.
  • Life your life with death in it-- don't take a single day for granted.
  • Ask your doctor to pray with you.
  • Don't be turned into just another patient-- hospitals tend to strip patients of their identity.
  • Listen to your favorite music-- music has a connection to emotional states.
  • Develop your own healing rituals.

Mind Matters

Appearing live in the studio during the first hour, mentalist Marc Salem spoke about powers of the mind and human psychology. He conducted a couple of experiments and noted that the brain works better when a person is standing as opposed to sitting down.
