I’m ecstatic to be featuring Norm Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. on Gratitude Speaks! He’s a pioneer in medicine, personal hero of mine, and all around rockstar physician. Norm’s a neurosurgeon, psychologist, founder and first president of the American Holistic Medical Association, founder of the Holos Institutes (a 502-C-3 organization for research and education), co-founder with Caroline Myss of the American Board for Scientific Medical Intuition, and best-selling author of gems such as 90 Days to Self-Health, Energy Medicine, and Living Bliss: Major Discoveries Along the Holistic Path. He’s circled the sun more than most and continues to lecture, consult, and innovate daily. You may chat with Norm directly on his weekly radio shows every Wed 9-11am CT, every Thu 2-3pm CT, and every Fri 1pm CT. Talk about walking the talk!
I always chuckle when I notice the cosmic giggles that are all around us. I mean, if your name’s sHEALy you’re destined to be in the healing profession. Couple that with Norm’s gutsy, genuine sense of caring and you see the pulsating archetypal physician energy that animates his being.
I recently had a chance to fly out to Missouri to visit with Norm and experience the power of Holos Institutes where holistic research and education are at home. So happy I went! If you’d like to see Norm, make an appointment at the International Institute of Holistic Medicine in Springfield, MO where he and his associate Sergey Sorin, M.D. work. It’s a multi-dimensional approach that honors mind-body-soul-spirit, the way it should be.
In addition to the above mentioned books, I’d like to highlight several more because I feel they’ll be of value to you: Medical Intuition: Your Awakening to Wholeness; The Creation of Health: The Emotional, Psychological, and Spiritual Responses That Promote Health and Healing (co-auhored with Caroline Myss); Life Beyond 100. Pick up the ones you’re most drawn to. They may change how you live your life.
The treasure trove of information Norm’s shared in his books, online tele-conferences, seminars, lectures, and radio shows is powerful and practical. I follow all of his channels and formats, and encourage you to do the same if you feel inspired to create vibrant health for yourself and others. Case in point:
I was introduced to Kyani, a line of nutritional supplements (that are so much more than just that), by Norm and Caroline Myss, an exceptional medical intuitive, teacher, five-time NY Times bestselling author, and another personal hero of mine. Some of my family members were having wellbeing issues so I reached out to Norm to see what he would do if he were in my shoes. First of all, I’m forever grateful he took the time to respond to my question; second, his advice’s spot-on. Top tip: Kyani Nitro. If you or someone in your world is looking to rebalance their health, check out the Kyani triangle of health: Sunrise, Sunset, and Nitro (Fx and Extreme). I’ll be dedicating a separate post to Kyani soon but want to share now that the Nitro products, made from concentrated noni, are outstanding as they help harmonize your system. I use ‘em daily.
Norm gets to the core of issues straight away so it’s only natural that his answers to my questions hit the heart of the matter. Enjoy, tweet away, and share your favorite jewels from Norm on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube, Snapchat, Tumblr, email, or in good ole in-person conversations. Here’s to your wellbeing!
