Fricker, Edward G. (1910-)

Fricker, Edward G. (1910-)

British psychic healer. When his mother died from cancer, Fricker prayed that he might be able to heal others. A Spiritual-ist medium brought him a message from his mother that Fricker indeed had such a healing gift.

His autobiography, God Is My Witness (1977), tells of his humdrum life as shop assistant, butcher, and costermonger (hawker of fruit or vegetables) before he developed his healing gift. He writes that he was inspired by a "voice" that put him in touch with a team of doctors in the spirit world. He claims to have healed over a million people during the last 25 years, although he has no medical knowledge.

After Fricker was featured on a television program, the station that broadcast the program was swamped with thousands of calls from sufferers. His clients at his clinic in the Westminster area of London have included such well-known personalities as British TV presenter Katie Boyle, actor Christopher Lee (famous for his Dracula roles), and actress Ann Todd.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
