MANILA, Jan. 26, 2016 – A priest lauded a group’s 20th pain-healing outreach that recently benefited over a hundred less fortunate villagers in a mountainous section of Quezon Province.
Fr. Dari Dioquino, former Kanlungan ni Maria priest-in-charge, likened Helping One Person Everyday’s (HOPE) pain-healing team to the four men who, despite great difficulty, brought a paralyzed man to Jesus.
“They were undaunted by the difficulties,” he said. “They carried the man to the roof, opened a hole in the tiles. Through it they lowered him down before Jesus.”
Painful conditions treated
HOPE conducted magnesium therapy sessions for at least 125 indigent people during the three-day outreach at barangay Kinabuhayan in Dolores town, said HOPE executive director Victoria Baterina-Solis.
According to her, recipients of the free magnesium therapy were patients with various painful conditions, like headaches, arthritis, muscle cramps, back pain, and also skin itchiness.
HOPE also gave away 150 bottles of 100 ml. magnesium oil, Baterina-Solis said. They were also able to train seven magnesium therapy volunteers.
HOPE rolled out its pain-healing outreach in 2015. The effectiveness of magnesium therapy in addressing painful conditions related to magnesium deficiency inspired the team to venture across the country to reach more people.
Magnesium healing sessions
Hundreds who complained of migraine, frozen shoulders, stiff fingers, and other painful conditions as well as insomnia experienced relief and treatment during HOPE’s outreaches in Rizal, Bohol, Sorsogon, Camarines Norte, Sagada, Tagum and other parts of the Philippines.
HOPE’s 20th pain-healing mission was sponsored by Magiteque Pain Therapy Centre, the first magnesium clinic worldwide.
Mary Jean Netario Cruz, owner of Magiteque Pain Therapy Centre, expressed gratitude for magnesium therapists Lyn Iglesias Domingo and Shirley Umali Griba, Rudy Encela, and everyone who supported the 20th mission in Mt. Banahaw.
Dioquino, who is assistant priest at the Immaculate Concepcion parish in Marikina, noted that “human concern for others, combined with faith in God, can work miracle.”
