At Hope4Cancer Institute we require that the patients watch an Immuno-Imagery program, a health imaging video and audio series that promotes health from within. This unique self-imaging system combines the scientific discoveries of psychoneuroimmunology (the study of the interaction between the mind and the immune system) with the latest professional guided imagery and deep relaxation techniques of Emmett E. Miller, M.D., a nationally acclaimed physician specializing in Psychophysiological Medicine.
This comprehensive program contains time-lapse motion picture photography through a microscope of actual immune cells. It reveals captivating animation, coupled with an inspiring narration that describes just how the body defends itself. These images guide the patient through a visualization process that helps activate their immune system. The audio provides relaxation and visualization guidance with soothing music and calming sounds of nature. Dr. Miller comments, "IMMUNO-IMAGERY provides a crucial element in any program designed to support the healing process in a most beneficial way, providing clear, vivid images of healthy functioning immune cells doing exactly what you want them to do within your body."

REALIZE the power you have to help activate the natural intelligence of your immune system using IMMUNO-IMAGERY. This program will allow you to take an active role in maintaining your health and improving the quality of your life. Relax, Imagine and Realize good health through your mind's eye...with a little help from your friends. IMMUNO-IMAGERY© is based on the conviction that your immune system is the wellspring of good health. The Immune System is a miraculous mechanism of defense, attack, and repair consisting of a network of cells and organs that instantly respond to the presence of any disease-causing intruder. It is well recognized that stress can have a negative effect on the function of your body's immune system. During periods of high stress we tend to get tired, "run down", and sick. Research has documented that deep relaxation can increase the function and efficiency of immune cells. In addition, a communication link has been discovered between the cells of the immune system, and the cells of our brain.
IMMUNO-IMAGERY incorporates research findings based on the science of Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), the study of the interaction between the brain and the immune system. Through an intricate network of neurons, the brain communicates with the immune system to regulate your health and defend your body from harmful invaders. Current trends in PNI suggest that you can affect your body's health through deep relaxation and visualization techniques.
IMMUNO-IMAGERY is your guide to activating the natural intelligence of your immune system. Visualization, seeing your body become healthy through your mind's eye, is the key to the IMMUNO-IMAGERY process. Once you have complete understanding of how your body biologically reacts to preserve health and heal itself, you can combine relaxation techniques and our unique images to experience the process of IMMUNO-IMAGERY.
IMMUNO-IMAGERY introduces you to your body's friends, the T-cells, B-cells and macrophages. Our program shows you exactly what they do and how they do it. IMMUNO-IMAGERY also uses powerful methods of deep relaxation preparing the subconscious mind to receive the stimulating images of a healthy immune system. Once you have been trained to these fundamental skills, IMMUNO-IMAGERY provides a repetitive program of deep relaxation combined with active visual stimulation.
The program features the relaxation and guided imagery techniques of Emmett E. Miller, M.D., a pioneer in the use of deep relaxation and imagery in healing. Dr. Miller is co-founder of The Cancer Support and Education Center which extensively uses visualization therapy. He teaches patients to take an active role in their treatment to fight disease, and promote good health and well being. Dr. Miller comments "IMMUNO-IMAGERY provides a crucial element in any program designed to support the healing process in a most beneficial way, providing clear, vivid images of healthy functioning immune cells doing exactly what you want them to do within your body."
