Torvund's FAQs otherwise look to be the same from the 1980s, with a little updating to include modern technology.
Does he claim that he can cure cancer? Torvund uses a lot of spiritual mumbo jumbo weasel words, he might know to sidestep such a direct claim.
The power of Divine intermediation can occur under any and all circumstances, but if someone is using strong pharmaceutical medications, especially chemotherapy, this must be assessed with respect to the balance of the physiological shifts and "side-effects" of such agents in the overall healing strategy.
For instance, while seeing Bill you can also see a homeopath, a naturopath, a massage therapist, or a structural therapist because they are not using physically invasive techniques.
So chemotherapy is positioned as a possible impediment to Torvund's supposed divine powers as are "physically invasive techniques" a.k.a surgery etc..
As far as I can see, this CEI forum is the only source of critical discussion of Torvund online. He has operated relatively under the radar.
Bill Torvund has a charismatic style, at times he was exhausting to be around. I saw glimpses of a possible inner circle, but could not tell if they were devotees or fellow New Age business types. I don't know what kind of following he has now. Torvund does look to have funded himself all these decades by this healer performance act.
