Dangers of Alternative Ways to Healing

How to avoid New Age deceptions

John & Cross David Berry

ISBN: 9781852405373

Many forms of alternative therapies are available today and this book provides fascinating coverage of what they are with clear guidelines on how spiritually safe or unsafe they might be.



The authors point to the early history and principles of alternative healing methods that enlighten the reader to the spiritual origins of new age healing practices. Many of these practices, including reflexology, yoga and acupuncture, to name just a few, have seen a rise in popularity even amongst some Christians. But are these healing practices spiritually safe and what are the consequences?


This book highlights the dangers and provides positive steps to take in the right direction towards true wholeness and well- being in our lives. It will help those who have been involved in alternative therapies and want to free themselves from its effects.


This book is part of Sovereign World's 'Truth & Freedom' series based on the renowned teaching program from Ellel Ministries International.

About The Author

About The Author

David Cross is Deputy International Director for Ellel Ministries and Regional Director for the Ministry in Western Europe.

He graduated from Nottingham University in 1969 and qualified as a chartered civil engineer, leading to a varied working career, which included building roads and bridges in the Highlands of Scotland and, in the early 1980’s, overseeing the construction of new town development in the New Territories area of Hong Kong. It was here that a huge personal change of direction occurred when he gave his life to Jesus.

Returning to Scotland, David became very active in church life and in leading ski tours in the Cairngorm Mountains. In order to further the Christian healing ministry in the Highlands, as an elder in the Church of Scotland, he and others in the local church made contact with Ellel Ministries in 1991, and two years later David and his wife Denise joined the Ministry at the international headquarters of Ellel Grange, near Lancaster.

David and Denise have three children and eight grandchildren, all giving much joy in the midst of very busy lives. Besides the thrill of sharing God's truth through teaching and writing, David loves walking and photography. His authoritative explanation of God's word has brought understanding and healing to many who have been confused and damaged by the ungodly ideologies of today's world. David has written four other books: Soul-Ties, God’s Covering, Trapped by Control and A-Z Guide to the Healing Ministry.

A very valuable book.Review by Sparklingcolour

The main gist of this book is to ask if there may be unseen side effects with some alternative remedies. While we are avoiding chemical intrusion into the body, could we be allowing spiritual intrusion instead, which stores up spiritual bondage for us in the future? They argue that this is indeed the case and give many stories that will certainly open your eyes to new possibilities if you are a Christian! The book is well researched and balanced, with comparison between the Bible and the fundamentals of many specific complementary therapies/remedies.
They believe that a Christian takes themself outside of God's protection when they do things like this and their bottom line is that the practice of some of these therapies can give a foothold for non-Christian spiritual powers to influence the person's life in an unhelpful way. It also has a chapter that goes step by step through what you can do about it (for yourself or someone else), with some example prayers.
Sections include: Is there a life force? Where does the power to heal come from? Who is the founder (this is answered for a number of therapies, and often the founder was heavily into the occult). What if the practitioner is Christian? The difference between a therapist and a medium. Healing the body or the spirit.
I like the style which is quiet and respectful, yet pulls quite a punch. There is a useful checklist of questions to ask about a therapy, remedy or exercise regime, to see whether it may have adverse spiritual side effects.
A very valuable book. (Posted on 29/09/2016)

This book is so good. It gives warnings on the dangers of New Age deceptions and holistic therapies. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to arm themselves with knowledge. It clearly spells out the dangers without being over bearing. There is a section on prayers you can make to be released and set free from their influence. Highly recommended (Posted on 29/09/2016)

This book clearly spells out the dangers associated with 'alternative medicine' without being overbearing or 'super spiritual' in any way. An important book to read for believers as the issues addressed are currently all around us. It will help you understand how to stay safe in today's world without becoming fearful of anything.
The clear style helped me absorb the material and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to every Christian in today's world! (Posted on 29/09/2016)
