Faith healing comes in various flavors with the most well-known being that which occurs in tents in the Southern part of the US - with great ceremony and flare. The underlying claim is that a faith healer can summon the power of the supernatural to cure people of diseases and physical disabilities. The people must have 100% faith in the power of this healing method for it to work. Many frauds and scams perpetrated by faith healers have been exposed.
