At least six people have died in Britain after being told they had been healed of HIV and could stop taking their medication, Sky News has discovered. There is evidence evangelical churches in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow are claiming to cure HIV through God. Sky sent three undercover reporters to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which is based in Southwark, south London. All of them told the pastors they were HIV positive - all were told they could be healed.
At registration, they have to hand over a doctor's letter as evidence of their condition.
They are filmed giving before and after testimonies, which are put on SCOAN's website.
One of the pastors, Rachel Holmes, told Sky's reporter Shatila, who is a genuine HIV sufferer, they had a 100% success rate. Ms Holmes said: "We have many people that contract HIV. All are healed."
She said, if symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhoea persist, it is actually a sign of the virus leaving the body.
"We've had people come back before saying, 'Oh, I'm not healed. The diarrhoea I had when I had HIV, I've got it again,'" Ms Holmes said. . . "I have to stop them and say, 'No, please, you are free.'"

This woman and her little gang who are exploiting vulnerable people need to be locked up and set an example of. I highly doubt she has any knowledge of the any of the illnesses she is claiming to cure.
I hope these practices sees to exist as soon as possible. Im skeptic of self healing, but this is just exploiting, and many religious places practice this. . Need to stop!!
