What are the potential risks and side effects of spiritual healing?

While spiritual healing is generally considered safe, there are some potential risks and side effects. One potential risk is that spiritual healing may be used as a substitute for conventional medical treatment. This can be dangerous, particularly in cases where a serious medical condition requires immediate attention. Spiritual healing should always be used as a complementary therapy to conventional treatment.

Another potential risk is that some individuals may have a negative reaction to spiritual healing.
