Dr. Miller is Host of Healing Times Radio~ Conversations with Extraordinary People Fridays 1pm & 1amEST on the Dreamvisions 7 Radio Network
Widely acknowledged for his seminal work in the field of holistic health and Mind-Body Medicine (1970), physician Emmett Miller earned his MD from The Albert Einstein College of Medicine and has served as lecturer and preceptor at Stanford, University of California, as well as other universities and medical schools introducing his groundbreaking work in Mind-Body Medicine, mindfulness, and stress reduction.
His chief contributions have been his discoveries of how thoughts, emotions, and mental images can be guided to have a profound impact on illnesses, wellness, and performance. Dr. Miller discovered that the unconscious part of the mind behaves in a way analogous to a digital computer; it perceives, reasons, and reacts the way it was programmed –ways that often produce negative or inadequate results. He found in his medical practice is that self–induced states of deep relaxation, meditation, or hypnosis made it possible to alter this programming through the use of mental imagery.
This led to the development of his ‘Software for the Mind’ guided imagery recordings that soon became standard at such institutions as Mayo Clinic, Scripps, Mt. Sinai, and Kaiser, and are in widespread use by health and helping professionals and centers worldwide.
Miller’s first book, Selective Awareness – Introduction to the Medicine of Mind and Body (1973), introduced his concepts for the first time. In 1977, he co founded and served as and medical director of the Cancer Support and Education Center in Menlo Park, the first such institution in the world. He has authored numerous other books, including the classic, Deep Healing – The Essence of Mind–Body Medicine, and his most recent, Our Culture on the Couch–7 Steps to Global Healing. Through the years Dr. Miller has continued to develop his understanding of the healing process, and to serve as physician, psychotherapist, coach, speaker, and professional trainer, and to continue to develop tools and skills to empower people to heal and to do their very best. He has offices in Los Altos and in Nevada City, California, where he practices Mind-Body Medicine and Peak Performance Coaching. His future vision includes the development of a web-based global healing center on the Internet distributing low cost yet powerful self–healing tools. www.drmiller.com
