Prior to 1971, pain clinics were the nerve block cut cesspool of medicine. That is when Shealy, visited Bill Fordyce’s passive behavioral modification program and came back to start The Pain Rehabilitation Center on October 15, 1971, in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. It was the first REAL chronic pain clinic.
He started with active behavioral modification. His protocol included keeping patients busy 12 hours a day with physical therapy, swimnastics, ice rub downs, slapping massage, physical massage, hot tubs, electro-acupuncture, TENS, and psychotherapy; as well as spinal cord stimulation in selected patients, and help with drug withdrawal.
Within a year he added Past Life Therapy, Autogenic Training and biofeedback. Shortly after came the addition of spiritual counseling and medical intuition.
In treating over 400 patients a year at his chronic pain clinic, each whose chronic pain had been worsened by multiple surgeries, narcotics and Valium, his success rate then was over 85%. He soon introduced spinal facet rhizotomy.
Working with 12 to 16 patients at a time, it soon became obvious that these patients also had not just pain but other chronic conditions too. These conditions included also hypertension, diabetes, and as always, anxiety and depression.
By 1974, The Pain Rehabilitation Center was a full-fledged Holistic Clinic for ALL chronic disease, including cancer, chronic Lyme disease, autoimmune diseases, etc. Spinal cord stimulation continued but at an ever-decreasing rate, with increasing facet rhizotomy rates.
The chronic pain clinic continued with a majority of patients receiving two weeks of 8 hours a day of the multiple physical, mental, emotional, spiritual approaches.
In 1982, after real estate taxes went up 1600% in Wisconsin, Shealy relocated to Springfield, Missouri, the state with the 49th lowest total taxes per capita.
By 1995, it was obvious that the insurance mafia was paying only 50% of charges with overhead ever increasing, so his clinic withdrew from the third-party system. Incidentally, that is also the year he wrote THIRD PARTY RAPE, emphasizing the complicity of insurance companies, hospitals, the legal system, medicine, and government in controlling medical care.
Many hospitals and clinics continue the rape system, with useless and harmful drugs, surgeries, alternative, complementary and integrative claptrap. None of these are even remotely Holistic.
The Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute continues as a full-fledged Holistic clinic. It remains the premier chronic pain clinic. About 50% of our patients come in complaining of pain. However, their pain is always accompanied by significant anxiety, depression and a wide variety of chronic diseases.
We continue to offer TENS, photo stimulation, cranial electrical stimulation, electro-acupuncture, the RejuvaMatrix, Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF®, Sapphire Enhanced AdrenoScalar®, Autogenic Training, Biogenics®, as well as intensives of one or two weeks at the clinic or by virtual consultation.
Interestingly, we no longer do facet rhizotomy or spinal cord stimulation and have referred only one patient for the latter in 6 years.
The biggest problem in most chronic pain patients is opioids, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-depression drugs, and anti-hypertension drugs. Weaning from these harmful, useless drugs is foremost and ignored by the majority of chronic pain clinics.
Retraining the brain and proper use of TENS, cranial electrical stimulation, The RelaxMate II, the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF®, The Sapphire Enhanced AdrenoScalar®, and our now 68 exercise Biogenics® program remain the best Holistic approach for pain, anxiety, depression, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and obesity. Nutrition, supplements, IV vitamin C and ozone, are particularly needed in cancer and severe inflammation. Past life Therapy remains an essential for some of the most severe problems.
In addition, for the past ten years we have also emphasized HEALTHY LONGEVITY. We do this by using safe and effective tools. The result of these tools is to minimize the wear and tear of aging and enhance rejuvenation through telomere regeneration. Every cell is replaced within 7 years maximum, so replace them with younger cells!
Today the average chronic pain clinic is back to the cesspool. The average clinic now offers more narcotics now called opioids, some nerve blocks and surgeries. Repeated surgeries are still likely to fail. You may have to wear a mask to get into one of these places. And you may soon be required to have a COVID-19 vaccine certificate as well.
In general, all conventional clinics for all chronic diseases are store fronts for the PharmacoMafia. There is NO chronic problem of any kind that we would treat with any drug. If you are not at least 50% better in three months after taking any medication, the “side effects” far outweigh the benefits!
Holistic Medicine offers the only safe and effective treatment programs for ALL chronic diseases. The fifty-year champion of Holistic Medicine effective treatment for chronic pain is Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute. The Institute offers the safest and most effective treatments.
