A practitioner of holistic medicine, Dr. C. Norman Shealy has been offering pain relief and wellness services utilizing alternative methods for the last five decades. At his private practice in Springfield, Mo., he treats patients facing chronic pain utilizing safe and effective programs including Biogenics, which works to reduce inflammation and relieve physical and generalized aches and pains. Because chronic pain can often lead to anxiety and depression, Dr. Shealy incorporates natural treatment plans to help resolve feelings of anxiousness and “giving up.” Throughout his career, Dr. Shealy’s intensive pain and stress management research has resulted in numerous pioneering treatments. In fact, back in the early 1970s, he established The Shealy Institute, the country’s first comprehensive pain and stress management facility. Today, Dr. Shealy continues to develop innovative treatment plans, including his latest in research and discovery: “By using a specific blend of essential oils, I can effectively stimulate the circuits which enhance DHEA, oxytocin [and] calcitonin, and reduce free radicals. This has been tremendously helpful for patients who are suffering from mental disorders. It provides detached calmness and relief from both depression and anxiety,” he says of his most recent findings.
