A disused, rubbish-filled well in Pasir Putih, Malaysia, has been miraculously

after it was fouled by rubbish and became unfit for use. On 8 November
2007, however, a white light shone from the well, and residents found
that the water had become crystal clear and was exuding a sweet fragrance.
trader Basri Hashim said he was performing the Subuh (dawn) prayers at
a nearby surau (Muslim prayer room) when the congregation smelt the fragrance
coming from the well. "After completing the prayers, many heard the
sound of water gushing in the well. We went and saw that the water was
clean and clear," he said.
Since then hundred of people have travelled long distances to visit the
well and drink the water, claimed to have healing powers. Some even bring
buckets to fill so they can bathe in the water. Journalists visiting a
few days after the story broke reported that the water was "clear
with a slight, sweet scent". Pasir Putih district health officers
have taken samples for tests.
"In the past, water from the well was reddish in colour and had a
foul smell. Many would not even go near the well," said fishmonger
Baharum Mamat. "Now, you can even drink it straight from the well
without boiling the water first."

healing springs in Switzerland.
local newspaper in Heiligkreuz, near Lucerne, carried the story of a spring
at the home of a group of Franciscan nuns in Ingenbohl. The water was

Local media also reported a healing spring at the Benedictine monastery

monastery has for centuries attracted pilgrims, who continue to visit
its Black Madonna statue which is believed to have healing properties.
Two further healing springs were reported: a mountain spring in the Alps

The water, described as "God's water" by Mrs Lucille Pope, spurts

The water-tree was discovered by Mrs Pope's son Lloyd and has now been

that the "mystery tree" is, indeed, special and that the water
has healing properties.

A fountain of water with healing properties has been discovered in the
Barangay New Pangasinan district of Koronadal City, Mindanao, southern
Philippines. Lauro Daguro, a faith healer, discovered the healing fountain
on 24 March 2005, the Thursday before Easter Sunday. He was walking with
the help of a stick when he saw water coming up from the dry ground. "I
became curious and drank from it," said Daguro, who suffers from
arthritis. "I also put some water on my aching elbow and knee. Some
moments later, I felt the pain gone. It's really a miracle."
Daguro said he did not understand how the fountain could exist, because
ground water in the area can only be extracted after drilling deep into
the ground. The miraculous fountain churns in water less than a foot from
the surface. News of the healing fountain quickly spread throughout the
largely impoverished region, and thousands of people have since visited
Antonina Agustin, a woman in her 70s, suffered from severe back pain and
found it difficult to walk. Her bent posture was like the letter 'C',

I was wiped with the water from the fountain, I can stand and walk straight.
The pain has subsided," she said. Another woman said that the water
had cured a five-year old child whose head was swollen.Daguro and several
women who attend to the visiting crowds said they do not collect money
from those who seek healing from the fountain, believing that if they
did charge a fee, the healing powers of the water might disappear.

There have been reports from Australia of a healing spring in the Monaro
region, near the Snowy Mountains south of Canberra. Cattle and sheep on
seven adjoining farms have been found to be extraordinarily healthy, fertile
and long-lived. The water on these farms comes from a local spring. Despite
extensive research since 1955, scientists have been unable to find a genetic
reason why the animals live so long. Stock on other neighbouring farms
without access to the spring water have normal life-spans.

water discovered in Chinese church
Miraculous water reportedly flowed from a cross on a church spire in Sanban
village, near Guigang city in southwestern China. "The fluid was
tasteless and did not flow every day," said the diocesan bishop,
Joseph Meng Ziwen. On 7 October 2000, the day of the feast of Our Lady
of the Rosary, a reddish-brown, water-like fluid began flowing from the
base of the cross erected on the church spire.
The water was discovered by a parishioner who was drying herbs in front
of the church property and found the herbs wet. The region had had no
rain for months, and there is no water pipe on the church towers.
Father Simon Huang Qingeai, priest of a nearby parish, has led pilgrimages
to the church, and witnessed the flowing fluid. He said the liquid flowed
for about 20 days beginning on 7 October and for 20 more days after Epiphany
on 6 January 2001.
A lay person took samples of the fluid for laboratory tests. An initial
report stated that the fluid contained red and white blood cells. Father
Huang said an elderly relative who suffered from stomach cancer claimed
that the pain disappeared after he drank the fluid. News of the miraculous
water has drawn thousands of people to the church.

spring in Thailand
to 700 people a day have been visiting the Wang Kanai Temple in western
Thailand to soak in the hot springs there because of reports that the
waters have miraculous healing powers. The temple Abbot, Phra Sompong
Putthasalow, said he discovered the water in a dream: "A man wearing
all white told me to dig in front of the temple where I would find something
that would benefit the people."
The monks discovered a hot spring after digging for about seven metres.
A tank was built and when Abbot Phra Sompong brought his partially paralysed
father for a series of baths, his condition vastly improved.
Since then many Thais have brought their ailing relatives and friends
to the temple in Kanchanaburi province. The monks have had to build 55
tanks to cope with the crowd and are planning to build more.
According to the monks, more than 50 people have been cured of various
ailments, including five paralysed people who now walk unaided. One
visitor, Mr Kwanruen Mahasengpachai, said: "I have been suffering
from rheumatism for 18 years and I am not in pain any more. I have only
been here twice for a soaking."

Dr Steinbrück conducted his study between September and December
1992 among 42 volunteers, most of whom had chronic diseases (50 per cent
suffered from rheumatism, 11 per cent from psychiatric or neurological
illnesses). The study was commissioned by Theo Tommes, the owner of the
grotto, to investigate scientifically the phenomena of healings. It was
carried out on a strictly medical basis by way of a clinical trial.
In most cases the actual visit to the grotto - ie the 'radiation' in the
grotto - was claimed to be the cause of the healings. Only 40 per cent
had a positive reaction following the drinking of the water alone. However,
Dr Steinbrück found that what he called "total treatment"
- ie the combination of both the radiation in the grotto and the drinking
or applying of the water - brought about the most effective improvements.
