A guest post written by Elizabeth Nelson from San Diego, California

I have often pondered the importance of understanding health and how it is best achieved. Most health-conscious adults approach health by focusing on diet, physical exercise, sleep, medicine, and emotional well-being.

I’ve found that prayer is crucial to everything I do and believe. So you can imagine how interested I’ve been to find prayer surveyed and reported as part of national studies on alternative and complementary therapies.
