Libby and Mary Ann attended the ISSSEEM (The International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine) on September 21-24 in Unity Village Missouri.

One of the presenters was Dr. Norm Shealy.  Dr. Shealy’s background is extensive and very impressive. He is a MD and is Board Certified in Neurological Surgery. In 1971 he founded the first comprehensive pain and stress management clinic in the world. The Shealy Institute was recognized for several years as the most successful and most cost effective pain clinic in the U.S.  Over a 30-year period his clinic treated over 30,000 chronically ill patients with a remarkable 85% success rate. He is the Founder and first President of American Holistic Medical Association and has over 312 publications, including 23 books.  Dr. Shealy now primarily does research.  He owns an EnergyGenesis chamber and has done research on the effectiveness of the EnergyGenesis on people with diabetic neuropathy and is now looking at how it can help people with Parkinson’s.   We hope to soon be able to share his research findings once they are released.

Below is a synopsis of his presentation:

Top items that lead to a healthy long life:

  • No smoking.
  • Stress management
  • BMI 18-24
  • 5+ servings veggies/fruits
  • Exercise 1 hour/day (minimum is 30 minutes 5 days a week)
  • No anger, guilt, anxiety, depression
  • Sleep 7-8 hours

Stated that only 3 % of Americans have all of these items

Causes of Premature Death:

  • Obesity
  • Cigarette smoking/tobacco
  • Rx drugs and medical complications
  • Alcohol and drug abuse

Where Conventional Medicine Shines:

  • Postponing death
  • Sustaining some chronically ill patients



Where Complimentary Alternative Medicine (CAM) Medicine Shines

    I am interested in the vagus nerve and how to calm down its hyper-reactivity in my gut.
