C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
In 1971, as a neurosurgeon who had introduced Dorsal Column Stimulation and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), I was overwhelmed with referred patients who had failed conventional medicine, at least 400 each year, mostly failures of multiple back surgeries. I could justify doing Dorsal Column Stimulation on only six percent of them. I knew that the rest were so damaged from excessive surgery, narcotics and tranquilizers. They averaged 49 symptoms and had an average of 5 medical diagnoses in addition to pain. I jumped out of the box to start the first physician managed Pain Rehabilitation Center. Initially I did just an active behavior modification program, including physical exercise, massage, whirl pools, etc. The end of that first year 75% of the 400 patients were off drugs, with marked or total relief of pain and resumption of a functional life.
Then, in 1972 I learned about autogenic training, biofeedback, and Past Life Therapy and added those to my routines, as well as the best one on one spiritual counselor I had ever know, Rev. Henry Rucker. This was the beginning of Holistic Medicine at its best. That program evolved and continued in working with 30, 280 patients, all of whom had failed conventional medicine. Our success rate of 85% was rated the most cost effective and most effective pain clinic in the U.S. Over the years our experience has broadened to treat many other chronic problems which fail conventional medicine.

Together we operate the International Institute of Holistic Medicine in Springfield, Missouri, providing the widest range of Holistic approaches for all chronic problems–and the most scientifically proven way to rejuvenate telomeres, the secret to a long and healthy life!
Health is the natural state of being: free of anxiety, depression, and symptoms that nag you that body and mind are not functioning normally. The key is Self-Regulation, the ability to detach from those aspects of life that one cannot change and to focus on creating inner peace and harmony. Just as there are many roads to Rome, there are many tools for Self-Regulation, including the broad field of Energy Medicine to optimize nutrition, biochemistry, strength, vigor, endurance, mental peace and spiritual attunement.
The primary focus of IIHM is based upon the 44 year experience of C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., creator of TENS, in working with over 30,000 individuals who had suffered from incapacitating pain, depression and the wide variety of problems that are not helped by conventional modern medicine. The Medical Director is Sergey Sorin, M.D. who is experienced and active in Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Music/Sound Therapy. He has extensive experience in Holistic Sound Therapy, Mind/Body/Spirit integration, Wellness/Health/ Weight Management and Energy Medicine. He is also a Reiki Master-Teacher. IIHM offers individuals the opportunity for a new beginning and transformational experience.
Individuals can take advantage of a one hour consultation, an hour of any of the above services, or a one day, 5 day or 10 day spa experience.
