Self Health Empowerment Movement (SHEM) is an all-volunteer organization engaged in self health empowerment and a member of HCN based in the Philippines. SHEM works to manifest the vision of a love based health care system. Dr. Romy, the founder of SHEM, said, “We believe that a combination of doing, thinking, having and being is a powerful formula in realizing the vision of an empowering healthcare system that is built by the people and for the people, a healthcare system that is empowering. A healthcare system that brings back the truth that our body is ‘intelligence’ because it is divinely designed. Our strategy is to focus on the consciousness level because it is at this level that the root cause of all problems of society originate.”
SHEM will be participating in the Lifestyle Medicine Conference Aug 25-27 at Parklane Hotel, in the beautiful Cebu Islands. Attendees are from different countries, with about 80% from the Philippines. Dr Romy is excited to share about HCN with the people of the Philippines as in his experience lifestyle medicine there is more mind based than a holistic approach.
“The HCN network and our membership inspires us to evolve our programs and our set-up. It’s not easy to change towards being more of a holistic center, but we are willing and committed,” said Dr. Romy. “Every time I get lost in what we are trying to do here, I go back to HCN, watch the webinars, read the articles, check again the HCN website. HCN has been our guide and I am in deep gratitude that somewhere along the way, we connected. I am still hoping someday I can join you all in a Centers Gathering.”
Inspiring The Manifestation of an Empowering Healthcare System
Friends, let me share to you a movement that is close to my heart. Self Health Empowerment Movement (SHEM for short) is a wholeness and oneness movement.
I would like to invite you to join us in this vision quest towards the ultimate HEALTHCARE SYSTEM…
- a system of self-health education
- a system of self health empowerment
- a system that is built by the people and for the people
- a system that brings back the glory of the DIVINE DESIGN of human beings (WHOLENESS)
- a system that bolsters people’s sense of their own DIVINE magnificence (ONENESS)
- There are more diseases today than ever before
- There are more medical procedures today than ever before
- There is more cancer today than ever before
- Health care is more expensive today than ever before
Long term health is vastly different compared to short term health. In short term health, there is no empowerment. In long term health, there is empowerment. I truly believe that our body’s ability to heal itself is much much greater than anyone has permitted us to believe.
A new era of human health begins and NOW is the time for all of us to join forces together. As we begin to cooperate and imagine a better health care system, our small ripples of cooperation will someday become waves of change. Cooperation is more powerful than competition. The truth is competition is a mistake, because it is coming from a fragmented mindset. Cooperation comes from a Oneness mindset.

A Call To Action
My dear friends, together, we can make things happen. Together, we can make our small ripples become waves of change. Together, we can manifest the greatness of our beings.
No matter how many hospitals we build, how much medical sciences develop, health is not going to happen unless each individual takes it in his or her own hands. Each one is responsible for their own wellbeing, for their own joy, and their own ultimate liberation.
Governments, corporations, and administrations can provide infrastructure for wellbeing, but the source of wellbeing is within. Only in taking charge of our inner nature is there true liberation for Humans.
