Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe

Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe

Dr. Jaffe has helped patients to heal from many serious diseases, including some that have been unresponsive to traditional medicine and deemed irreversible or terminal. These include both physical and psychological diseases such as advanced heart disease (atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure), cancer (breast, lung and others), pulmonary disease (asthma and COPD), thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s), infectious diseases (Lyme, etc.), depression and anxiety disorders, and many others. The Institute of Spiritual Healing offers courses and trainings to help teach these methods for professional practitioners seeking a Healer Certification in Spiritual Healing, and to students interested in personal transformation, and healing, through Sufi spiritual walking.

As a young doctor, Dr. Jaffe witnessed a miracle in the ICU when a young girl with end-stage hepatitis was healed. After doctors had exhausted all their options using Western medicine, her condition was treated with an ancient biblical form of health that quickly returned her vital signs to normal. Dr. Jaffe was so touched by the effectiveness and mysticism of this healing that he traveled the world for years, searching for the deepest and most profound forms of healing he could find. Later in his life, Dr. Jaffe suffered from temporary blindness and congestive heart failure, which were both healed through the Spiritual Healing Process. His personal experience of this process has fed his passion to share it with others.
