The only healing affected is that which involves HT rolls to regain HP. I may be overlooking one or two obscure rules somewhere, but normally, the only circumstance under which HT rolls regenerate HP is natural healing. It's true that you roll dice for the Healing advantage, Healing spells, First Aid, etc., but those aren't HT rolls.
