Spiritual healers frustrate medication in Tanzania-Doctors.
Tanzania medical Doctors have lamented that some religious sects interfere “quite seriously” with their medical work by praying for the terminally sick as a healing process.
The doctors are bitter that these spiritual healers only end up delaying or frustrating medical treatment as prayers cannot replace conventional medicines. It is on record that some patients eventually opt for medical intervention when they are on the brink of death, having stayed without medical help for too long.
The Doctors also noted that spiritual healers, who also pocket money from the sick, are not the only culprits in this health endangering foray, some traditional healers are equally dangerous in this country.
The healers should team up with conventional medical doctors to save the lives of the sick. It is imperative to mention here that event the lamenting medical doctors are no longer respected
