From a former New Ager turned Christian:
My advice is to not consult anyone who calls him/herself a
The above are the same or in the same category: New Age, which means, in most cases, that occult methods are used.
Gwyneth Paltrow, who is New Age, recommends Anthony William, a “medical medium,” who calls himself a healer. This has led to his current fame. People are drawn to his site because of the word “natural” and recipes for healthy meals. This post is a rewrite of my first of several warnings on Anthony William over a span of 3 years’ time.
It took me about 90 seconds or less to discover he is a psychic healer. His consultations are by phone:
“Your consultation with Anthony William will consist of a body scan, allowing him to identify where the imbalance(s) are in your system. The most pressing health issues that are scanned will be discussed.
He will then answer any questions or concerns you have about your physical, emotional, and spiritual health in detail.
You’ll receive a comprehensive plan to help give you the best results in the shortest amount of time. You’ll want to have pen and paper handy for note-talking.” At http://bit.ly/1OFLfOg
Comment from CANA
So he consults by phone yet gives you a body scan — how does he do that, you may wonder. Well, psychically, or he might say, intuitively. I learned how to do this in a class I took called Inner Light Consciousness. It is taught in many New Age based healing classes or in psychic development classes (which I also took).
Also note another red flag: “spiritual health”
Have a loved one who is ill? No problem:
“If you have a loved one that’s in need of a consultation but is unable to speak to Anthony, you can have a session on their behalf.
The person concerned does not need to be in the room at the time of the consultation for Anthony to provide answers about their health.”
(A 30 min. reading is $500)
If he does not need to see you, he does not need to see or even talk with the loved one since it’s all allegedly done remotely via his intuition or psychic abilities. This is what many such healers do.
In the video on this page, http://bit.ly/1RPPdSj, he recounts how he heard a voice at age 4 which told him:
“I am the spirit of the most high; there is none above me but God himself”
Later, Anthony William was visited by a spirit at dinner who told him to tell his grandmother she had lung cancer. She went to the doctor and found out she did. We don’t know if this story is true or not but it’s what he claims.
Clearly, this was a spirit guide (fallen angel) who entered his life and is still with him. Notice how this spirit called itself the “spirit of the most high” and that there is “none above me but God himself.” Pretty audacious claim but this is typical of fallen angels who act religious. They use religious language and exalt themselves. They never praise Jesus (or at least the Jesus from Scripture) or God.
AW’s bestseller, “Medical Medium,” has influenced many and he is followed by tens of thousands, including many Christians. His radio program is from Hay House Radio.
This is another Red Flag! Hay House, started by New Age “healer” Louise Hay, only promotes New Age material.
He even has a page on angels:
“You were born with the divine right to reach out to the angels whenever you need them. They hear you, they see you, and for your entire life, they’ve witnessed your joys and hardships. They want you to contact them. They want to help you more. The secret is, you have to know which angels to access, and you have to know how to access them……These are ancient, named angels who are rarely called upon, so they’re readily available to come to your aid. The essential angels want to help you heal, protect you from harm, and lead you to the right choices. They want to connect you with financial support, the right partner, your true home. They want to help you experience the miracles of this world amid the chaos. The angels are here for you.” http://bit.ly/1HBD9Ui
The above quote is damning, on both levels (as a metaphorical adjective and as real applied to AW unless he repents and turns to Christ).
No one has “the divine right” to contact angels. In fact, no one in the Bible ever does this; God sends his angels (the holy angels) when he wants for specific tasks to further God’s agenda and glory.
No angels heal in the Bible; that is not their role. Nor do they help with finances, romance, or find you a home, as alleged by AW in the quote above.
He includes a chapter on angels in his book. The above quote is quintessential New Age belief on angels. Of course, these are fallen angels and yes, they would love you to contact them. I am sure Anthony William has many such angels as his guide which is how he seems to know what illnesses people have (in the cases where he is right).
All such healers (and all psychics, mediums, New Agers, tarot card readers, etc.) have such angelic guides.
There were many red flags here:
medical medium (don’t miss the word “medium”)
remote body scanning
So watch out — amongst the fruit and alluring recipes on such sites are the nests of viperous fallen angels.

SHORT LIST OF POPULAR NEW AGE “HEALERS”**
Mike Adams (Natural News)
“Dr.” Sebi (not a doctor)
Anthony William (Medical Medium)
Barbara Brennan (Hands of Light; energy healing)
**Oz, Seigel, Weil, Chopra, Shealy, Hyman, and Northrup all have medical degrees but are followers of some or many New Age beliefs. Others on the list are chiropractors (Nelson, Dispenza); Mercola is an osteopath; and as far as I know, Adams and Wolfe have no medical training or background.
It is a fact that Anthony William has no medical training or background (the disclaimer on his website states this so he can be protected from lawsuits). Carolyn Myss is a “medical intuitive” who supposedly fine tuned her skills under the guidance of New Age doctor Norman Shealy. Myss is 100% New Age.
Most promote pseudoscience or worse, especially Nelson, Dispenza, Adams, Wolfe, and Mercola, along with New Age beliefs.
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I repent of my sins and turn to you. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
