Healed of Bechterews Disease

Geir Thorsen was healed for Bechterews disease when he laid/put his hand on the TV while Svein-Magne Pedersen prayed for the sick in March 1996. He has been well ever since. -He is almost more fit than me, says his wife Grete.
Bechtetews disease is a sickness/ailment that there is no medical cure for according to research, but Geir Thorsen, the SAS plane steward was able to experience that it is possible to get healed. He was healed when Svein-Magne prayed for the sick on the talk show «Lønning direkte» in 1996.

Bechterews disease is a chronic rheumatism of the intestines/sacrum, backbone/spine, the joints between the ribs and the vertebrae. The hips and the knees can also be subjected to this. Normal complications accompanied by this sickness are inflammation of the tendons/ligaments and eye infection. The sickness can cause stiffness to the ribcage and vertebrae.

Geir Thorsen had been diagnosed with bechterews disease in 1995. At that time he had been bothered by a lot of pain for a period of 3-4 years.

-It started with pains in my hips and pelvis and on the inside of my thighs, he tells. -The pains came and stayed for a few days before they stopped. I work as a plane steward in SAS and had to go home from work some days because the pains became so intense. Most of the time pains came when I was at home. When the pain got to be very bad I had problems walking because of the pain in my legs. I didn't manage carrying the grocery bags out of the store. I wasn't capable of doing anything.

The diagnosis was bechterews

Geir contacted his family doctor with the hope of getting help.

-My family doctor suspected that it could be bechterews sickness and took amongst other things blood samples, because in order to have this sickness, the blood had to contain a particular substance. It went to show that I could be dispositioned for beckterews sykdom and I was refered to "diakonhjemmet" in Oslo for a closer examination.

At the Diakonhjemmet Geir had an MRI performed and the doctors could clearly see an infection around the pelvis and the hips.

-I was told that I had bechterews disease, but the doctor advised me not to read up on the futuristic ramifications of the disease. -I believe he wanted to spare me from getting discouraged. I therefore didn't study the consequences of the sickness, but as a Christian, I wasn't worried about the future. I had a good feeling that it would be alright.

Put my hand on the TV

Geir took regular pain killers when the pains got to be too intense, and he took the initiative to start working out at a gym where they gave him a program designed for the sickness.

March 7 1996 Svein-Magne Pedersen was a guest at the Norwegian talk show Per Ståle Lønning direkte. At the end of the program Svein-Magne had the opportunity to pray for the sick on the air.

-When Svein-Magne prayed, I laid my hand on the TV, says Geir. -I didn't have any pain at the moment, and didn't notice any difference in particular.

Days, weeks and months went by where Geir did not feel any pain from the Bechterews disease.

-Now it's been almost 10 years, says Geir. -The pains have never come back.

-He has has almost become more fit than me, says his wife Grete.

-I am more flexible and strong than I was before I got sick, says Geir and touches the ground with his legs straight. -I was not able to do this when I had bechterews. Geir Thorsen was healed for Bechterews disease when he laid/put his hand on the TV while Svein-Magne Pedersen prayed for the sick in March 1996.

Can touch the ground: Geir Thorsen is touching the ground with straight legs. -I was not able to do this when I had Bechterews disease, he says.
