"For more than two decades, C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., founder of the American Holistic Medical Association, has been investigating claims of extraordinary healing through Divine intervention. Here, in Sacred Healing, Dr. Shealy unveils the mystery and offers a readers a prescription for health. ""Sacred healing"", the life-giving power of a higher energy source, can cure seemingly incurable diseases when conventional medical procedures fail. But why? Dr. Shealy's quest for an answer to this question took him to the Philippines, where he and a team of experts watched psychic surgeons use only their hands to perform complex operations, and to the Ukraine, where he worked with physicians who had cured thousands of patients of everything from diabetes to cancer. In addition, Dr. Shealy tested the abilities of renowned sacred healers. In clinically controlled settings, he conducted a series of scientific trials using sophisticated medical equipment to measure the effects these healers had on patients - even at a distance. He also documented more than one hundred cases of terminally or chronically ill patients who were miraculously cured after modern Western medicine had given up on them. During the course of his investigations, Dr. Shealy came to the realization that all healing ultimately comes from a Divine source, and all illness stems from an imbalance or sickness in the spirit of the individual patient. He concludes that we all have the power to heal ourselves. We all have the potential to be sacred healers."
