Why does God heal in a manner that is indistinguishable from nature?
Some people who pray are healed, others aren't, and god never ever regrows amputations or other missing body parts.

Some things are simply more difficult to accomplish in the natural realm, than others. Jesus, while he still walked the earth, restored the totally absent visual organs of a man born blind by first, fashioning them from a natural substrate. Nothing similar to that has ever been accomplished by anyone else, at any time, which pretty much totally demolishes your argument.

After he set up natural healing
why would he choose to use alternate methods?
But in fact
we see in the Bible
and in many claims throughout history
Consider, for example, the many and well-documented miracles of Lourdes.

Many miracles have occurred, for which there was no possible scientific explanation. A person has pancreatic cancer, first discovered by X-ray, then confirmed by biopsy. The night before surgery, people from her prayer group come to the hospital, gather around her bed and pray for her. Next morning she is prepped for surgery, wheeled to the operations room. The doctor does a final scan, He tells the nurses this is the wrong patient. Everybody goes crazy, double checking the X-ray, her identification, etc. Yes, it's her, but there is no sign of the cancer.

God designed nature, so why would he not use the same methods, even if much quicker

Because he works according to natural and eternal principles. You're making the mistake of confusing God + nature with Nature.
Yes, God occasionally does cause body parts to regrow. My girlfriend grew a new kidney once.

God can heal any person if he prays to Him constantly for a time!
Therefore, God can revive a severed arm, or a leg, but the believer must always pray to God, God will reward prayer and faith with His miracles.

Jesus and his Apostles healed in a manner that went completely the opposite that of nature. They healed the blind, the lame, the sick, the lepers, and even raised the dead. That type of miraculous healing ended when the last of the Apostles died.

The Lord mainly enable the body to restore itself.

To preserve free will. If everyone agreed it was God, it would destroy any alternative. God's existence must be accepted by faith not proofs.

Because nature is a tool controlled by God. Since God is in control of nature, it should be expected that healing by nature and healing by God would render identical results. This could be viewed as further proof that God exists, for those who doubt.
