Optimal Recommendations


C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.


In 1977, the concept of Biogenics, the “genesis of life,” was created with my first major book, 9O DAYS TO SELF-HEALTH.  Initially this included a major “software” program for biofeedback and cassette tapes of a number of the mental exercises.  Over the ensuing decades our research has expanded so that I can comfortably state that AVERAGE life expectancy should be 100 years IF one chooses a healthy lifestyle—

Eat wisely, avoid tobacco and street drugs, exercise daily, keep weight within the ideal and BE POSITIVE.

There are a number of tools that assist this process and, indeed, by adding a few techniques, I believe average life expectancy can be a healthy 140 years.  See FIVE SACRED RINGS for details.

A truly wise lifestyle includes:

  • Be positive.  My book 90 DAYS TO STRESS-FREE LIVING provides Biogenics exercises as a foundation for dealing with all unfinished emotional issues.  Eighty-five percent of depressed patients who follow this program after initial non-drug therapy remain out of depression.  Great tool for all people.
  • Magnesium deficiency is epidemic.  Everyone with normal kidney function will benefit from magnesium supplements.  Oral magnesium is notoriously poorly absorbed.  The best we have found is Biogenics® Magnesium Lotion, well absorbed through the skin. For those who wish a pleasant, health-enhancing bath, soak in Biogenics Magnesium Crystals.
  • Dr. sHEALy’s Eugesterone cream—most individuals over age 50, men and women, will benefit from natural progesterone cream.  It helps restore DHEA, the most critical hormone in the body.  See my booklets DHEA-THE YOUTH AND HEALTH HORMONE and PROGESTERONE.
  • The Biogenics® Spa—a major boost to rejuvenation.  The most critical factors are  an hour on the RejuvaMatrix™ bed, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, Photostimulation with the Shealy RelaxMate, and vibratory music and sound therapy. Five days of this experience often provides the foundation to begin a major anti-aging regimen. There are a number of ancillary tools to enhance this experience.
  • The Rings—We have demonstrated that stimulation of 5 specific circuits in the body selectively enhance natural, essential neurochemicals.  Using Air, Fire, Earth, Water and Crystal BLISS you can optimize DHEA, neurotensin, aldosterone, calcitonin, and reduce free radicals.  At least the DHEA, calcitonin and free radical components are crucial for longevity. And these can be optimized with specific essential oil blends!
  • Basic supplements—our food supply is not necessarily optimal in essential nutrients.  Thus, I believe that most individuals will be healthier and feel better with supplements.  These are outlined in my Recommendations for everyone.
  • Water—Biogenics® Water Conditioner, laminar micoid crystal, embedded in pottery, appears to change the hydrogen bonding of water.  Plants grow 20% faster and greater volume.  Most individuals prefer the taste.
  • Relaxation is the greatest antidote to stress. Daily relaxation for 30 minutes lowers adrenalin production and insulin requirements by 50% for the entire 24 hours.
  • Crushed sapphire crystal, worn in pouches around the neck significantly reduce anxiety and depression
