Electric feet give kick to Vietnamese village’s economy

Pham Thi Phu claims to cure people with cancer, polio, mental illness and autism by transmitting “electricity” to the patients through her bare feet.

Sometimes 600 people come for treatment in a day, a local man only identified as Nam, told news website Phap Luat.

There’s a funny thing someone noticed though…

“When I came here for the first time, I met a group of young men and women, who told me they had come to thank her for her wonderful treatment,” Tran Van Thang, a 65-year old man with lung cancer from Hanoi, said.
“But after a few months, when I came back to her house, I saw the same group with the same thanks.”
Hmm. There is word that some people DIDN’T fare well with treatment and went to the health clinic or, unfortunately, died. Those people aren’t singing Phu’s praises.
Phu used to be a fortune teller but turned to “healing”. She does not charge impressive fees, but as is regularly seen, even donations of whatever people wish to give end up being substantial. Also, she doesn’t treat local people who seem to not like her at all. People come from out of town and spend money at the businesses nearby, some of which, it’s said, are owned by her relatives. With this information, it sounds like miracle tourism, not real miracles.
