A GP clinic in Amsterdam Osdorp offers faith-healing, reports Het Parool. People with Alzheimer, Parkinson, Cancer or Aids can go there for a 'healing' session. The christian practice is run by Jan Boogaard and Cornelie Scheeres. A Parool journalist discovered the faith healers via the site Healingrooms Amsterdam.

Fake hiv-infection

The reporter went in for the treatment of a fake hiv-infection. The practitioners assured him that prayer would help him to overcome his illness. Het Parool confronted alderman Eric van der Burg with this practice. He expressed shock and promised to contact the Inspection for Public Health and the National Association for General Practitioners (LVH). According to the LVH this practice is contrary to the profession's guidelines . The inspection states it can't undertake action as long as the practitioners don't keep their patients away from regular healthcare.

Substantial network

Via the Healingrooms Amsterdam it is also possible to access the Evangelical centre Beréa in Amsterdam-Zuidoost. This Amsterdam site is part of Healingrooms Netherlands, – an organization under the direction of Erald and Mathilde van de Ridder – and as such a branch of Healingrooms International.

There are already Healingrooms in over 26 Dutch cities. Peter and Mardy Maas are directors of the Amsterdam branch.
