THE IMPORTANCE OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS SPEAKING OUT For
some time IANDS (The International Association for Near-Death
Experiences) has been working to encourage doctors and nurses
to understand and speak out about Near-Death Experiences.
They have even produced a medical
training video. Fortunately a number of medical professionals
have listened to what their patients have told them and
have become interested in researching NDEs.
But this is only a start. As the front-line caregivers who
deal with life and death on a daily basis, it is time for
medical professionals to come out of the closet about their
many afterlife experiences. In
a 2005 survey of 1,044 doctors in the USA, 76 percent
said they believe in God, 59 percent said they believe in
some sort of afterlife, and 55 percent said their religious
beliefs influence how they practice medicine.
A recent book by Dr.
Scott Kolbaba includes experiences by 27 physicians
(he actually gathered experiences from 200). Yet the culture
of the medical profession pressures staff to keep their
experiences to themselves.
While NDEs are important, there are some other NINETEEN
areas of afterlife evidence which medical staff need to
know about in order to help their patients the way that
the doctors and nurses in the following inspiring video
have been able to.

FRENCH ANESTHESIOLOGIST TALKS ABOUT
NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES font>"Although
I was a scientist and a highly technical medical specialist,
I finally admitted that death is only an obligatory passage
to an unknown destination. Unfortunately, the truth about
the afterlife is not obvious to everyone." Dr.
Jean Jacques Charbonier has written a number of books about
the afterlife, one of which, 7

DR. CHRISTOPHER KERR
Dr. Christopher W. Kerr is the Chief Medical
Officer at The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, where
he has worked since 1999. His background in research has
evolved from bench science towards the human experience
of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patients’
dreams and visions at the end of life. Although medically
ignored, these near universal experiences often provide
comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led
and the death anticipated.
DR. JOHN L. TURNER During his career as a board-certified surgeon, Dr.
Turner's curiosity drove him to explore nontraditional healing
techniques that broadened the scope of recovery for his
patients, including energy healing, chanting and meditation
(approaches historically found in religious practices),
soul travel, and astral projection.
In his fascinating book,Medicine,
Miracles, and Manifestations he discusses
* How metaphysical events such as remote viewing, telepathy,
consciousness, and life after death are all verifiable manifestations
of the way the human brain interfaces with the universal
*That consciousness persists after the death of the physical
*That our life is carefully planned before birth but there
is an element of free will.
*That we can interface with a spiritual world and a collective
