Creating a Multi-dimensional Approach to Healing with Dr. Nauman Naeem

Join us for a delightful chat with Dr. Nauman Naeem about his passion for improving lives by changing the way we look at and create healing outcomes. As a pulmonary and critical care specialist, caring for tens of thousands of chronically and critically ill patients over his career, he noticed that the majority of patients do not heal and remain trapped in the paradigm of chronic disease.

Motivated to dive deeper into the roots of true healing, he made it his mission to understand human behavior and how we achieve our highest potential. To achieve this, he pursued a thorough study of ancient healing traditions, the psychology of healing, consciousness, and metaphysics which has culminated in his popular book ‘Healing From The Inside Out: Overcome Chronic Disease and Radically Change Your Life.’
