Adam Dreamhealer is not your average 19-year-old. This Canadian college student makes more than most doctors do. He says he can heal people with just his hands.
ABC News estimates that Adam will make more than $1 million this year, and that doesn't include the income from his books, DVDs and $150 healing sessions he offers over the Internet.
The $1.2 million does include his seminar work in darkened rooms, with 600 people gathered before him. That's when Adam goes into a trancelike state and begins to work what some say is magic.
It was at the age of 15, Adam says, that he began manifesting bizarre powers. "All these strange telekinetic things [started] happening around me. Just little things like pencils flying out of my hands, erasers flying out of my hands," he said.
Now Adam says he channels that power into healing cancers and infections.
Linda Peterson, a fourth-grade teacher from Minnesota, says she experienced the healing benefits of Adam's hands.
Linda was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in 2004. She went to one of Adam's workshops; then, two weeks later, when doctors took a look at her tumor, they discovered there was no tumor.
"There was nothing there. Gone," says Peterson.
Two years later, Peterson's cancer came back. So she returned to Vancouver to see if Adam could heal her for a second time.
Adam says when he is trying to heal a person he sees a "quantum hologram" -- a representation of the combined energy of everyone in the room.
"I'm not actually sure what it is I do. I go into this trance," says Adam. "I don't see anything else around me except for this person in front of me. And then I'm just changing these things, this image in front of me."
He says he uses his hands to fix breaks in the energy flow, which allows the healing to begin.
But Adam can't guarantee the success of his work.
Mavis Joy went to Adam to get healed and says her lymphadema did not get better. And another time, when "Primetime" cameras were rolling, Adam correctly diagnosed a woman as having minor back and shoulder problems but completely missed her bigger problem: breast cancer.
Then there are those, like Debbie -- who didn't want her last name used -- who believe wholeheartedly in the miracle of Adam. She says she's seen his power firsthand.
Debbie's fiancé, Trevor -- a journalist, author, and father -- went to Afghanistan four months ago. Debbie says he was mediating a dispute in a small village when a militant came up behind him and split his head open with an ax.
Debbie started a diary the night she got the news that Trevor was in a coma, from which doctors said he would not awake. Debbie says she was convinced the doctors were wrong.
A friend told her about Adam. Debbie says she asked Adam if he could do a long-distance healing on Trevor. Over the course of the next few weeks, Trevor began to gain consciousness.
Debbie wrote in her diary that when Trevor awoke, he said to Debbie, "I love you." Debbie writes that she began to cry. Trevor could speak and his humor had even returned. "Made you cry," laughed Trevor.
Although Debbie says Trevor still remains very sick, she credits the fact that he's still alive to Adam.
"The doctors said that he wouldn't recover, so to me, that's a miracle. It's a miracle that he's still alive and he's going to continue to be a miracle," says Debbie.
