illnesses & conditions
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.
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.
Osteoporosis, which literally means “porous bones,” happens when your body can no longer make new bone tissue fast enough to replace the old. Your bones silently get weaker and more brittle until one day something snaps when you fall – or cough, or get out of a chair. Yikes!
Osteoporosis affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over 50 worldwide. That said, you’re a lot more likely to have it if you’re female.
A new hospital department of Integrative Medicine can be vulnerable to becoming siloed and separate from general patient care.
The genius of the Connor Integrative Network (CIHN) at University Hospitals of Cleveland is that, as a network, it can be everywhere, seamlessly woven into the fabric of everyday patient and employee care.
Champions of Whole Health Care are either recruited from specialties at the hospital or are hired outright. They are first-rate providers, chosen for their expertise, skill, commitment, and compassion.
