In the excerpts below, Gurbani says, by remembering God, meditating and reciting his name, a person can obtain the cure for all ailments. Whether they be the ailments of the mind, body, or soul, the name of God is the cure for all. Does this mean you can be healed without any medicine or actions? Miracles do happen; however, sometimes, it is because of our prayers and remembrance that we end up in situations that alleviate our pain. Whether it is a person coming to help us (doctor), or finding medicine that works for you. Whether it be a friend suggesting the right solution, or perhaps, a good idea comes to mind.
In addition, when our mind turns to God, that positivity also alleviates a lot of effects of negativity. Science has also proven that the power of positivity is amazing, and there is nothing more positive then the name of God. Gurbani says, Vadaa Sahib, Oocha Thaao, Oocha Oopar, Oochaa Naao. You just have to remember that God can do anything. Sabhna Galaa Samarath Swami So Kyon Manno Visaareh . There is nothing beyond him. Hukmai Andar Sabh Ko, Baahar Hukam Naa Koe. All below is the teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Dukh Bhanjani Sahib, Sukhmani Sahib, and many other scriptures from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji deal with pain and suffering.

Without trust and faith, the process does not begin. The second step is to praise him at ever step. The next is to submit to his will. Then next comes…??
Select Verses, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji:
An attempt at translating these verses:
ANG 269 from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji
Does this mean you should give up everything else? That’s a complicated answer. All I can say is that I’ve come to understanding that remember God at all times, and secondly, do everything as God would want you to, which until you fully connect with him it is hard for a person to understand. If what you do gets you closer to God, then its an act that is better than one that doesn’t, but maximize the time that you spend on the contemplation of God, Singing his praises, talking about him, sharing information about him and so forth. Where does this come from? Love!
Most powerful pangti that I have ever read and it changed how I viewed things:
“Sagal Dharam Mehi Ootham Dharam. Karam Karathooth Kai Oopar Karam” Which is translated below to that remembrance of God is the highest of all religions. It is the highest act you can perform. Higher than any other ritual. In Summary, forget your mind’s desires, and remember God.”
