Esteemed Neurologist, Dr. C. Norman Shealy, MD is Meritoriuosly Named A ‘Patient Preferred Physician’ For Holistic Pain Management, 2021!

Hauppauge, New York - 02/23/2021 — For his expertise and excellence in pain management, Patient Preferred Physicians and Practitioners proudly named Dr. C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, D.Sc. FACS, DABNS, and a “Patient Preferred Physician” for 2021 representing the state of Missouri.  

With over six decades of achievements in his field, Dr. Norman Shealy is respectfully known as a pioneer of holistic pain management. He is the founder of Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute and is one of the world’s leading experts in natural chronic pain relief solutions. He was the first physician to specialize in the resolution of chronic pain. A pioneer in developing safe and effective treatments such as Biogenics, he founded, in 1971, the first comprehensive pain and stress management facility in the country. Shealy Wellness is respected world-wide for its innovative and successful rehabilitation approaches in over 30,000 patients.  

His holistic approach to pain management has landed him on several TV programs throughout the country, including the Joan Rivers Program, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Oprah, and many other local television and radio programs. Since 1971, he has lectured worldwide at hundreds of medical schools, hospitals, and churches with up to 100 appearances each year.

At the International Institute of Holistic Medicine, Dr. Shealy engages in daily responsibilities, including the education of biofeedback, behavior modification, biogenetics, and various treatments for chronic pain. Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute offers a comprehensive approach that includes, especially in acute situations, appropriate drugs or surgery focusing on major problems where conventional medicine fails. He is credited with the invention of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator, spinal cord stimulator, and radiofrequency ablation.

Proving a combination of autogenic training, Far Infrared heat therapy, biofeedback, and Past Life Therapy, Holistic Medicine evolved and continued in working with individuals who had suffered from incapacitating pain, depression and the wide variety of problems that are not helped by conventional modern medicine. With a success rate of 85%, International Institute of Holistic Medicine was rated the most cost effective and most effective pain clinic in the U.S.

C. Norman Shealy entered Duke University at age 16 and Duke Medical School at 19. He was elected to both Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha honor societies and became the permanent class officer of his graduating medical school class. He interned in Internal Medicine at Duke and then had a year of General Surgery at Banes Hospital, followed by a five year residency in Neurosurgery at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital. He is Board Certified in Neurological Surgery. In 1961 he spent 9 months working with Sir John Eccles, Nobel Laureate, at the Australian National University. In 1977 he earned a Ph.D. in Psychology from Saybrook Institute, the leading Humanistic Psychology School. And he received a Doctor of Science degree from Ryodoraku Institute.

He then spent 3½ years at Western Reserve Medical School, where his research led to both Dorsal Column Stimulation and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS™), both now used worldwide to help control pain. In 1966 he became Chief of Neurosciences at Gundersen Clinic, one of the 10 largest clinics in the U.S.

Shortly after graduating from Duke Medical School, and beginning his career as an accomplished neurosurgeon, Dr. Shealy noted: “The most common symptom in the world is pain, and yet nobody specializes in it.” At this early phase of his medical life, he decided to look into pain, what causes it, what we can do about it, and how it affects us as human beings.

He had not been investigating long before he recognized that the majority of long term fixes for chronic pain did not come from the established medical community, but from the ”folk domain.” Shealy began a series of research and experimental processes which included any ideas he could come across that claimed to be able to treat chronic pain in the long term without the use of narcotic medications. Consulting and researching with acupuncturists, mystics, faith healers, color therapists, folk healers, and other non-traditional therapists, and blending this new knowledge with his medical background, Dr. Shealy came to the conclusion that, while none of these methods was THE cure for chronic pain, almost all of them had developed a documented history of being able to successfully eliminate chronic pain in a good number of their attempts. It is at this juncture that he decided that it is the interaction of the four main fields of stress; the chemical, physical, electromagnetic, and emotional; that is the cause of all illness...not some, all.”

Dr. Shealy is author of over 312 scientific publications, 36 books, 14 patents, and has served on many national advisory and editorial boards. His first major public book,

90 DAYS TO SELF-HEALTH sold 130,000 copies.  

Dr. Shealy has been garnered with numerous professional awards and honors throughout his career, including the AHMA’s Holistic Person of the Year Award (1985), the Stress Award from American Institute of Stress (1997), the Pearl Award from Bio-Medical Synergistics Education Institute (2000), and the Surgeon English Humanitarian Award from Temple University (2002). He also stands as the First President of the American Holistic Medical Association (1978-1980).

Today for his dedication to pain management and for his many achievements in patient care, Dr. C. Norman Shealy is recognized by the exclusive Patient Preferred medical society and is now listed among the “Top 100 Patient Preferred Physicians” of 2021.
