Cures in the Grotto of Lourdes


TOULOUSE – The water from the source to the sanctuaries and the very place of pilgrimage could be the source of healing found in the city where the Virgin appeared to Bernadette, scientists have considered together in conference, including the Nobel Prize Luc Montagnier.

“I look for rational reasons,” noted Professor Montagnier, co-discoverer of the AIDS virus, who presented his theories on the influence on health of electromagnetic waves of very low frequency of water.

“I can not explain the miracles,” said American rheumatologist, Esther Sternberg, claiming that a place like sanctuary created the “emotions” and that they probably have a “role on health, healing the sick.”

Professor Montagnier wanted to bring “a message of science alongside that of faith,” he warned before the participants of the symposium organized by the office of the medical findings of Lourdes on the theme of healing “in terms of reason and science, in connection with the influence of faith and prayer on human health.”

He recalled the “disturbances” (neurodegenerative diseases, cancer …) could result in the human body’s electromagnetic waves, and his own experiences on the water structure and its role in human disease.

He thus suggested that the spring water from the grotto of Lourdes, where the apparitions have taken place, could affect patient health, while stressing that the analyzes of this water did not show any particular property.

For Professor Sternberg, if stress can cause the disease, being “immersed in an atmosphere of compassion, as in Lourdes, can affect the emotions, and thus the brain.” It occurs “a change in the brain that allows the body and the immune system to heal,” she said.

“In a place like this, it already happens with the hope that we will feel better and it reduces stress,” rated the rheumatologist.

The Church recognizes that healing dropper: more than 7,000 cases of unexplained healings were recorded at Lourdes since 1884 but less than 1% of them, sixty, received official recognition.
