Who in St. Petersburg raised the banner of charlatans-healers?
“It would seem that the peak of popularity of all kinds of healers-healers, able to solve any alleged problem of the patient with an unpredictable diagnosis, long gone. And in the past left a mass psychosis believing in the supernatural powers of anyone. But no. Field-Union water recharge (batteries and belts), as well as interrupts the effects of hypnosis on TV unwanted pregnancy (or the formation of malignant tumors) again generously seeded in our country and, moreover, in St. Petersburg. Reaping a considerable shoots as in rubles, and in the form of truly sincere gratitude healthy or even just believed in the possibility of a cure from their ailments.
You ask who (what) actually? The answer is simple – on practitioners in our city is not the first year the Dr Konovalov and his so-called clinic. “Dr. Sergei Sergeevich Konovalov and his Humanitarian and rehabilitation center is a miracle, worthy of crowning leaving the twentieth century”. This fragment of the order date annotation on one of the books healer offered today in bookstores. But similarly pompous phrase about another work of Konovalov: “the Most famous healer of St. Petersburg Dr. Konovalov knows how to restore people’s health, how to save humanity from disease. The book contains the Energy booklet. He already pomognem. Now he will help you, even if the Clinic Doctor is thousands of miles” (spelling and punctuation preserved. – Approx. ed.). Feel, what is it? Buy a book where ever you are, and take care of yourself. In the distance. From any disease. Familiar?
The straw of hope is always in demand
The patient, whom the doctors said that the medicine, alas, in his case, powerless, doesn’t want to give up. He wants to live. And to be healthy. He and almost all, to get rid of his terrible disease or injury. Man, like a drowning man, clutching at any straw. It is here that enter the stage a variety of healers-healers, psychics, sorcerers. Official science looks at them skeptically, but place, alas, can not. To a greater extent because the patient wants to believe in supernatural healing, and also because the authorities about, and without toying with the charlatans.
Having the calculator may find understanding
The ticket for sessions of doctor Konovalov (10 visits within one month) from 23 July to 24 August 2002 at a cost of each patient in 1300 roubles (at the next sessions the price is, say, raised to 1500). In this treatment the doctor carried out in two rather famous in our city’s cultural (?!) institutions: Music hall (1500 seats) and in DC. Leningrad city Council (capacity up to exactly 1,000 seats). Interested in by simple arithmetic manipulations can count that only the tickets will give the clinic a respected doctor nearly 3 million (!) rubles. To this it remains to add that people aren’t sitting in the hall and in the lobby. And that during the sessions on sale are “charged” personally Konovalov books-booklets and bottles of water (all of which actively purchase! Our reporter bought “charged” the booklet is in A4 format, folded in half, over 60 blood rublikov! In this case, the grandfather-the seller took the “magic” piece of paper in the rubber fingertips, so as not to damage its original “energy value”!).
By the way, the rent of the hall for two hours (and it takes so much session Konovalova) in the same Music hall will cost anyone from 50 to 120 thousand rubles, depending on day of week and availability performances. The Lensovet Palace of culture – less. That is the maximum Dr in 10 sessions you will pay the rent 1.2 million in Music hall, leaving the team for something around 400 thousand. Plus earnings at the city Council and fees from the sale of books-booklets (they strongly recommend to buy to everyone!) and the “charged” water from one of known manufacturers. Consider.
“I am God”.
Different psychics promising people healing, explained (if explained at all) its miraculous possibilities. Someone says about their own relationships with the primordial cosmic energy flows, which, in fact, treat-maim. Another claims that, having plunged into the study of ancient manuscripts and cave paintings, was able to decipher hitherto yielded to no one the secret of the astral connection with the center of the Earth (or the navel of the Universe). Third, without a moment’s hesitation, says he hit him with a fireball in the country and suddenly appeared to him amazing abilities.
Doctor Konovalov maintains that his power is from God (with a capital letter and not otherwise). Like, where is God, here you are, you have your personal angel. And between all of these – he, Konovalov. You are blind, don’t see that. But do not worry. The doctor will help to find his angel to communicate with him personally and with God to cure any disease.
Who did what in response?
One would think people can believe in kanavalau, well pay him crazy money for “treatment”, we care. Let it be deceived and eager to be deceived. Suppose one believes the chain healed, singing the praises of the doctor from the stage during his really professionally delivered show. Maybe people will be easier? And if Yes then let. And if not?
A citizen of, say, N. (her family is asked not to mention names) came to St. Petersburg from Riga on sessions Konovalov. The benefit here is living water on the seventh jelly – very dalacoura sister, who agreed to shelter her. And to Moscow, where the daughter and son-in-law live, at hand (after all of the guests you can go). But here she went to the Music hall once, twice. Yes and lost! Quite, meet. In Moscow received a disturbing call: say, your mother yesterday to the session is not returned. Of course, the next morning, Peter came running daughter disappeared, the old Regency with her husband. Immediately to the police. And they say, they say, don’t rush into a statement, three days wait, maybe she found the guy, the point is everyday. Not what “the man”, of course, speech could not be. And what it turned out. after a good week. Missing woman police found in the hospital. As it turned out after a couple of hours – the law enforcement officers relied on stale data, since the citizen N. already transferred to a specialized psychiatric clinic. What happened?
– She is never anything “such” did not hurt, – has told in edition of the daughter of the victim. – To doctor Konovalov came for the second time. At first everything worked without problems. And here. She’s in the hospital, I didn’t recognize. Said something about the angel, about Konovalov. I called the doctor, his assistant Valentin Vladimirovich Arost simply insulted me, saying that they no any abnormal do not have.
What does the healer?
Stop! Here I would like to understand. But for what meets “the healer”, “enslavery” in the most capacious halls in the city. Is it just that on the back sold for 1200 rubles entrance ticket was a round seal “Doctor S. S. Konovalov”? In this respect there are several different and quite authoritative opinion: according to the article 57 of the fundamentals of legislation about health protection of citizens, the holding of sessions of mass healing is prohibited. The foundations of these several times, shook up, and it turns out that if local authorities sessions allowed, then it can be appealed in court. And the healer may be subjected to administrative liability (a fine) or criminal (if the patient’s health is harmed). But in our town for some reason do not care. Got a license and off you go. Ogareva gullible citizens “health” for their own account.
