For the record, even my admittedly very rapid rate for "natural" healing 
doesn't eliminate the call for healing potions & magic. It just takes the sharp 
edge off so that PCs don't rely 100% on magic for their healing.

The explaination for my own campaign is that healing spells don't scale down, 
that the minimum St cost for any healing spell is 50 St. So you get an IQ 19 
healing spell that heals everything for 50 St, but no one has bothered to work 
out the lower IQ healing spells that heal lesser amounts at a cost of 50 St 
in fatigue.
