Listen on:

After a friend recommended that I look into the concept of “miracle healing,” which I was admittedly extremely skeptical of, I read the book Miracles Every Day: The Story of One Physician's Inspiring Faith and the Healing Power of Prayer, which is the story of Dr. Issam Nemeh, a Cleveland-based physician and devout Catholic who has prayed over tens of thousands of people from all faiths and all walks of life in the past two decades.

The apparent result of Dr. Nemeh's work? Miracles.

No, I'm serious. I didn't believe it at first, but the stories in the book and the testimonials of legitimate, trustworthy people are mind-blowing. Injuries healed, cancers cured, sight and hearing restored. Yet, as Dr. Issam Nemeh will be the first to point out, “the miracles are just to get our attention.” The healings do not originate from him, but from God. It is this humility and dedication to those in need that have won him the respect and trust of laypeople and religious leaders alike.

The book traces the lives of the doctor and his dedicated wife, Kathy, and brings us the uplifting stories of the many people who have been healed through one man's powerful faith. Miracles Every Day is a compelling reminder of God's individual and unconditional love for each one of us. Along the way, you meet the dedicated family members, volunteers, and clergy who support the Nemehs in their work. They speak of a ministry of hope, of lives changed and saved through not just the power of prayer, but through the awesome Spirit-driven power of love.

After reading it, I was so inspired and intrigued that I just had to see and experience Dr. Issam Nemeh and his work for myself. So I hopped on a plane to Cleveland, Ohio, hunted him down, and recorded an intriguing and inspiring audio interview for you with content unlike anything I've ever talked about before.

One CBN article about Dr. Issam Nemeh includes the following:

“When Dr. Nemeh was 15 years old, he had a vision that he would share his gift of faith with thousands, but first he would have to form a solid base for his ministry with a medical practice. Midway through his career, he switched to the practice of Meridian Regulatory Acupuncture (MRA). MRA is different than traditional Chinese acupuncture. It consists of 2 parts: a diagnostic procedure and a treatment procedure. The diagnosis involves measuring the electrical resistance of the body at different points on the skin, known as meridian points. These measurements are graphed and treatment is performed with a small needle temporarily inserted for a few seconds.

Dr. Nemeh says he made the career change because he felt the Lord tell him this new practice would give him one-on-one time to work on people. His practice grew by word of mouth from his patients who told stories of their healings to friends and family. Dr. Nemeh says he only prays with the patients who ask him to and is quick to give the credit to God. “I don’t do the healing,” says Dr. Nemeh. “It’s Jesus. It’s the Holy Spirit.” Many of his patients are oblivious to the fact that Dr. Nemeh is already praying for them. “Prayer is non-stop,” he says…

Six days a week, Dr. Nemeh combines acupuncture and prayer for his patients and his Sundays are spent standing for nine hours in churches and meeting halls without a break at healing services. Tens of thousands of people have experienced physical, emotions and spiritual changes since Dr. Nemeh opened his practice in 1992.

Cancer tumors vanish, vision is restored, and other dramatic healings take place after Dr. Nemeh prays for people. He says these healings and miracles are manifestations or demonstrations of God’s presence. Basically they are proof that God is closer to us than we think and that He walks beside us in everything we do. It is Dr. Nemeh’s desire to see people grow closer to the Lord as a result of their healing.”

    Extraordinaire !
    Comment peut-on consulter le Dr Nemeh ?

  2. Kate says:

    Ben – I am really curious as to the healing Dr Nemeh did on your thumb. I know you ended up having an operation regardless … Iso the issue was not resolved with Dr Nemeh? Was there any improvement… ? You seemed to be surprised at the sensation you experienced on the day…?

    This really is a phenomenal podcast … would be very grateful to know of your experience following…

  3. Aurora says:

    How is your finger feeling now after that healing session during the podcast?

  4. Mary says:

    My husband and I can’t thank you enough for hosting Dr, Nemeh on your podcast, Ben! We just finished a virtual prayer session with him and have already felt our healing process begin. Dr. Nemeh is such a genuine, wholesome soul who truly cares about his patients, their backgrounds, and their journeys back to health and wellness. He was so generous with his time and energy – not just for us, but for our beloved 14-year old miniature pinscher Becks as well, who’s been suffering from kidney disease. As we were wrapping up our FaceTime with Dr. Nemeh, our vet called and left us a voicemail regarding Beck’s recent bloodwork…I kid you not, he said he’d never seen any dog’s levels improve to such a huge degree – from around 4,000 to 1400! Dr. Nemeh has definitely played a role in her recovery as well as our own and we are forever grateful – to him and you both! God bless!

  5. Steve Johnson says:

    God and Dr. Nemeh saved my life 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer with 2 tumors the size of my fist! I was given 2-3 months to live! The Holy Spirit entered my body and my MIRACLE healed my entire body! I was cancer free 30 days after my visit to Dr. Nemeh! I wish I could post a picture of what I looked like! 108 pounds left of a 150 pound body! I have a book out called “Miracle off the Field” which features Dr. Nemeh and his power of healing! When people contact me about my experience, I immediately send them to Dr. Nemeh! I believe you can go to to see my story! God bless Dr. Nemeh!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your story Steve!

  6. Steve Johnson says:

    I went to see Dr. Nemeh in June of 2016! I was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer, with 2 tumors in my body, the size of my fist! My pulmonologist gave me a death sentence of 2-3 months to live! I was then introduced to Dr. Nemeh through my dear friends! My MIRACLE suddenly happened! The Holy Spirit entered my body and removed every bit of cancer and tumors within one month of my visit to Dr. Nemeh! I sit here 5 years later enjoying my new life and family! God bless Dr. Nemeh!

  7. Amy Surrena says:

    i met Dr. Nemeh 2X several years ago. Dr. Nemeh and his wife/staff are truly a blessing. I also had some friends see Dr. Nemeh and they all raved about the experience. Truly wonderful people. Their stories are amazing. You have to experience his work to appreciate it. I would and hope to do this again. Funny is I was sharing Dr. Nemeh with somebody and came home to see this podcast. Thanks Ben for doing this.

  8. Adrian says:

    What Ben didn’t mention is that Dr Nemeh has worked with NASA and built machines for them to be used in space. It seems to me that NASA’s scientists believe in him.

  9. Hi Ben. Awesome interview! I was tracking/familiar with everything you talked about as we have a very similar practice model. We use a quantum and Neurologically-based chiropractic technique with RCT studies and an FDA 510k approved adjusting instrument. The developer of this technique also developed a micro current cranial nerve device for diagnosing and treating abnormal nerve frequencies throughout the whole body. And the best part is we start and end all of this with divine healing prayer to the power of Jesus Christ living in us.

    Please reach out to me to discuss the possibility of an interview!

  10. Stephanie says:

    Excellent podcast, Ben. What a calling this man has on his life….and you do too!

    I am reading this book right now.…

    As a follower of Christ, I was still skeptical, and I was prayed over and healed of some gut issues. This book may be enjoyable to you as well. God Bless you and your family.

    1. Thanks Stephanie! May God bless your family too!

  11. Catherine says:

    Loved this – I’ve listened to it a few times as I genuinely believe we are living this earthly existence in part to understand how to manipulate energy to our advantage and healing.
    Joe Dispenza is doing similar work – teaching people to heal themselves – mind and body.

    Amazing man – amazing podcast.

    Ben.- always grateful that you enrich our lives daily by bringing great individuals to the fore and living to your higher purpose…

  12. DonnA says:

    Thank you Ben for your interview with Dr. Nemeh. I have had a healing with Dr.Nemeh he is truly blessed with the gift of healing. I appreciate your insight and education on health for the whole body.

    We are body, mind and spirit. We must exercise and grow all of these areas to be truly healthy. I became a true fan of you and your work more as i watched you grow and mature in your faith.

    1. Appreciate the feedback Donna! Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  13. Aaron says:

    Ben, I think you are great at knowing the latest scientific research when it comes to bio hacking, etc. I assume you do tons of research to introduce your readers to new and proven supplements and activities to help your listeners.

    My question is being a man of science and proven facts how you could preach to your listeners to believe in a man in the sky with ZERO proof of his existence? The fairy tale probably gave people comfort and an answer 2000 years ago before little science based information and 90% of the population was illiterate but today? This is an honest question. I grew up catholic when I was told what to believe but once I gathered more knowledge and education the fairly take of course becomes ridiculous. Once again I do enjoy your podcast when not preaching religion etc. so I would like to know how you came to this belief. Please if you would let mind do not answer faith…faith in a flying purple elephant would not make it any more real or believable.

    Thank you for what you do.

    1. Chris says:

      I share your bewilderment at Ben’s gullibility when it comes to the supernatural and religious faith. I cut him some slack because it seems he was indoctrinated as a child, and delusional beliefs can be very difficult to grow out of (especially when there is a monetary incentive not to). I wish he’d stick to the scientific method, and stop peddling comforting delusions.

      1. Catherine says:

        Pretty sad analysis. Having had a near death experience I was fortunate to receive proof that God does indeed exist and belief, prayer and energy, is a powerful tool to connect us to a higher power (in whatever form that may take in terms of religion or spirituality) .
        I feel sorry that you feel the need to comment here to try and diminish someone else’s light and belief as if it is mere indoctrination and anti science.

        Truly appreciative for Ben’s authenticity on this.

    2. Gayle says:

      We need to ask ourselves…how often does science change its mind? How many “scientific facts” and “mathematical facts” are no longer facts. The field of quantum physics is so vast, I don’t believe we should be so arrogant as to assume that nothing is possible until we prove it.

      God is not about religion. The religious killed Jesus.
      God is about true love and relationship. We need to start over with our churches.

    3. Terry Hanusik says:

      Zero proof???? The proof is ALL around you! Sadly you are too blind to see it. Praying God will open your eyes to see His truth.

    4. Beauly says:

      Somebody clearly needs his consciousness raised.
