Distant Healing Therapy in HIV/AIDS (California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute subcontractor)
A collaboration with the Complementary Medical Research Institute and San Francisco Community Consortium, a division of the San Francisco General Hospital. Sponsored by the NIH/NCCAM.
Purpose of Research
The purpose of the proposed trial is to extend preliminary work by:
- studying a much larger sample
- examining additional biological markers of disease progression
- following medical and quality-of-life outcomes for a longer time period
In addition, the study will compare distant healing (DH) efforts by professional "healers" with DH efforts by professional nurses with no previous DH training.
