Director Kelly Noonan Gores' documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.
HEAL not only taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers but follows three people on actual high stakes healing journeys. Healing can be extremely complex and deeply personal, but it can also happen spontaneously in a moment.
Through these inspiring and emotional stories, we find out what works, what doesn't, and why.
Featuring Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr Joe Dispenza, Anita Moorjani, Bruce Lipton, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Gregg Braden, Anthony William the Medical Medium, Dr. Kelly Turner and many more.

Kundalini Running founder Doug Wilson overcame a life threatening brain tumour in 2013 and used yoga, meditation and mindful practices like a plant based diet to support his rehabilitation. In just over 12 months after suffering extensive cranial nerve damage, meningitis and leaving hospital in a wheelchair the changes to his lifestyle led him toward becoming the first person to run 7 competitive marathons on the 7 continents in under 7 days. Doug now shares his experiences of coping with the stresses of the modern world through teaching and working with people in drug rehabilitation. His background in investment banking Enterprise IT compliments his scientific approach to health which is backed up by practical, real world experiences of developing a healthy body, mind and spirit.
