In this conversation with Kimberly Braun, you will learn about the profoundly positive role that silence can play in your life if you tune in to it! Continue reading
Since Dr. Miller reported on his original findings in the new field of Mind-Body Medicine, many studies, both in the lab and in clinical populations, have confirmed and reconfirmed his observations – that the overwhelming majority of all our illnesses have a strong stress component. They show that how we feel about ourselves, the nature of our relationship with others, and our attitudes about the world are the most important factors in how sick or well our bodies will be, and how excellently they will perform.
Dr. Miller is a mathematician and a scientist; he believes in basing decisions and choices on scientific evidence and high quality critical thinking. Here you will find summaries of and references to the basic studies showing the impact of mental and emotional activities on health and survival. New research will be explored here on a regular basis.

Some of this research is the type done under controlled conditions in the laboratory; this type shows how our thoughts and emotions impact the physiology of our bodies. Research on clinical populations collects health data from large groups of patients, evaluating how certain ways of thinking, feeling, and interacting cause health or disease. Likewise this research demonstrates the effectiveness of the Mind-Tools presented here at DrMiller.com.
Another type of research shows how specific illnesses are affected by our emotional state. For instance, being depressed has been shown to dramatically increase the likelihood of a second heart attack.
– and from this we may infer that it is likely that it increases the likelihood of a first heart attack as well. As you scroll down the articles below, you will be amazed at how fully independent research supports the principles of Mind-Body Medicine.
