Okay, it’s here!!
Guided Imagery for Resisting and Preventing Viral Infection by mind-body pioneer (and extremely good guy), Emmett Miller MD, has been edited, equalized, de-essed, de-popped, re-spaced, newly balanced, mixed, bounced, compressed, amplified and possibly even sanctified for all I know.
It’s now ready for dispatch to anyone interested in elevating their immune system and warding off this nasty virus and any others.
Our team, working and meeting virtually, (but for one plucky rotating staffer, who shows up daily to mail out actual things that have mass and exist in real space - like CDs, Playaways, sleep masks and N.O.W. tone therapy peace pucks - wishes you well. Our new mantra/blessing?)
- May you be present.
- May you be kind.
- May you be well.
- May you be at peace.
And we’re committed to doing everything we can to help support those healing mind-states.
In the past few weeks, we've received a flood of questions about COVID-19 and what audios we recommend to help deal with the nerves and anxiety produced by this outbreak.
Morning sickness in the first trimester of pregnancy is pretty commonplace, typically showing up after 6 weeks, with the yuckiness peaking around week #9 and usually fading by week #12, at the end of the first trimester. It’s likely the result of a sudden rise in pregnancy hormone levels – estrogen and hCG, (human chorionic gonadotropin).
And although it’s no day at the beach to feel seasick for weeks, it’s nothing like Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), a truly nasty condition that affects maybe 1-2% of pregnant women. It means persistent, severe nausea and vomiting, so intense that it can lead to weight loss and dehydration. Some women have to be hospitalized so fluids can be replenished with an IV tube. And they feel unspeakably horrible.

When the plucky, resourceful Louisa Nedkov, Manager of Staff & Physician Well-Being at Halton Health Care, (Toronto) reached out to Health Journeys to ask what we could do for surgery patients at her hospital, we talked about the options.
She’d been using our CDs for years and was ready for something a little more in line with our digitized times…. Something handy, user-friendly, private and portable. …and it goes without saying, reasonably priced.
Emmett Miller MD is arguably our leading pioneer of physiologically and biochemically targeted guided imagery. He was the very first practitioner to offer hypnotic guided meditations to target specific health conditions, such as cancer and hypertension, starting in the ‘80s. We’re honored and delighted that he accepted our invitation to create imagery for osteoporosis for us.
It’s that time of the year, when by some estimates, more than three-quarters of us have given up on our New Year’s Resolutions. Some of the most common changes we aim to make are to quit smoking, eat better and exercise more. Other goals may involve starting (or completing) an important personal project, making more of an effort to get together with friends, and perhaps vowing to set healthier limits with people who take more from us than they give.
We set these goals for ourselves because we believe that they will make us better in some way – happier, healthier, more productive, and so forth. And yet, most of us quickly get discouraged and slip back into familiar patterns that feel easier in the short term but prevent us from getting to where we really want to go.
Recent studies are clarifying and refining what works best for reducing the severity of posttraumatic stress symptoms in our Veterans, turning long-held assumptions upside down.
Two recent studies find that general meditation training (ie, practices that do not focus on specific traumas, but instead serve as all-round resilience and self-regulation training) can do a way better job at reducing symptoms than what for years was touted at the V.A. as preferred therapies: Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) and Present-Centered Therapy (PCT).
I’m trying to remember when we first began working with Progressive. It was a long time ago… had to be the early ‘90’s.
It was love at first sight.
Peter Lewis, Progressive’s bigger-than-life, hell-raising, out-of-the-box-thinking CEO, put the capital P in Progressive in more ways than one.
Every now and then we get lucky and Emmett Miller MD agrees to develop some guided imagery for us – this time it’s for bone health – osteoporosis and osteopenia – something you’ve been repeatedly requesting for a long time.
Emmett is arguably the first and foremost pioneer of medically based and psychologically sound guided imagery.
