Doctors Who Believe in Life After Death

1. Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon who never believed in Heaven, now does. He says, "In the fall of 2008…after seven days in a coma during which the human part of my brain, the neocortex, was inactivated, I experienced something so profound that it gave me a scientific reason to believe in consciousness after death."

2. Dr. Jeffrey Long reports on some 1,300 near-death accounts. He says, "“My research involved experiences of young children age 5 and under, and I found the content of their near-death experiences is absolutely identical to older children and adults,” he told Vieira. “It suggests that whether you know about near-death experiences, what your cultural upbringing is, what your awareness of death is, it doesn’t seem to have any effect on the content of the near-death experience.”

3. Dr. Melvin Morse, M.D., is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington. He has studied near-death experiences in children for 15 years and is the author of several outstanding books on the subject:Closer to the Light, Transformed by the Light, Parting Visions, his latest book, Where God Lives. He is primarily interested in learning how to use the visions that surround death to heal grief. The stories that children have told him about what it is like to die have lessons for all of us, especially those attempting to understand the meaning of death or the death of a child.

4.Dr. Mary Neal is a surgeon who was skeptical of near death experiences, until she experienced her own. In this candid interview, she explains the experience that changed the way she practices medicine and her perspective on life.

5. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D.  (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004) was a Swiss American psychiatrist, a pioneer in near-death studies and the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying (1969), where she first discussed her theory of the five stages of grief. She described five stages she believed were experienced by those nearing death—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Read More About Her Here
