DETROIT (WXYZ) - A metro Detroit woman is praising the power of a healing service with Dr. Issam Nemeh for being able to walk and ride horses again after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis years ago.
Cindy Cook says it was nothing short of a miracle.
"He is just a conduit between God and the patient," she said.
Since her mid-20s, Cook has been living with MS.
"I had remitting relapsing, which is the most common and it transitioned into second progressive which is a steady downward spiral," Cook said.
Her condition worsened, and a nasty fall left her in a wheelchair, preventing Cindy from doing the things she loved the most. Her fiance, John Morrille, began taking care of her through the ups and downs.
"It was a very sad situation for her," Morrille said. " (I was) basically her sole caretaker to where I had to do everything for her. I mean, if she needed to get out of her chair to go to the bathroom I was picking her up to do everything – bathing her, dressing her, feeding her."
However, Cook is a fighter and wouldn’t allow MS to control her life, so she and her fiance did some research. That’s when she found Dr. Issam Nemeh in Cleveland and went to one of his healing services.
"I couldn’t walk at all at that point, and he touched my spine," Cook said. "He had me lean forward in my chair for about 5 to 7 minutes, that was it. He told me the MS had left my body and it was just unbelievable to hear those words."
We sat down with Nemeh back in 2010. He told us he gives God all the glory, and it's the holy spirit working through him.
"I know the perfect love that he has for us, and I know the perfect purpose that he has for humanity," Nemeh said.
He said he uses the power of prayer to heal people dealing with pain. Nemeh been featured on national television, and has helped countless people. Cook's fiancé John says he was inspired to see the miracle doctor.
"We walked in and he was there and as soon as I walked in and seen him I was just overwhelmed with joy, warmth," Morrille said. "I saw a glow around him. I didn’t understand. I mean, it brings tears to my eyes right now just thinking about it right now."
Cook says what happened to her is nothing short of a miracle. Now she can walk and ride horses again, and is looking forward to spending the rest of her life with her fiancé.
"I wouldn’t have believed it unless it happened to me, but it was such a remarkable experience going from not being able to walk to being able to walk again," Cook said. "I feel I have a second chance at life."
Cook says she still loves riding horses and says to anyone who may be skeptical of Dr. Nemeh to look online at some of his videos for yourself and do research before making a judgment.
