Spiritualism is a Science because it investigates, analyzes, and classifies facts and manifestations from the spirit side of life.
Spiritualism is a Philosophy because it studies the Laws of Nature on both the seen and unseen sides of life and bases its conclusions upon the present observed facts. It accepts statements of observed facts from past ages and conclusions drawn therefrom, when sustained by reason and by results of observed facts of the present day.
Spiritualism is a Religion because it strives to understand and to comply with the Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Laws of Nature, which are the laws of God.
Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World.

A Spiritualist Healer is one who, either through one's own inherent powers or through his mediumship, is able to impart vital, curative force to pathologic conditions.
