The idea that the mind is able to overcome a true physical ailment is a viable scientific hypothesis.

The inability of science to offer a satisfactory explanation at this moment does not remove this idea from being a valid area of scientific inquiry.

The idea that the healing was caused by God according to his will is not a viable scientific hypothesis since it cannot be investigated because humans cannot access the will of God and an assumption from the beginning is that God doesn't have to follow the laws of physics.
Yeah, but some of those cures are also not supposed to be possible per science too. And no one knows the scientific mechanism, unless the illness or disease is psychosomatic. It's simply "belief" on behalf of the person. One doesn't even have to prove what was in the mind of a God, if he/she even has a mind. Then there's the matter of a dead girl whose body did not decompose. That's not done by her mind since she died.
