Jack Miller, CTN

Professional Association with Dr. Lee Cowden

Jack Miller first met Dr. William Lee Cowden in 2003 as a late stage Lyme patient in the 2003 pilot study in Dallas, Texas. This pilot study simply asked and answered the question “Can late stage Lyme patients make a complete recovery without the use of antibiotics? Will natural medicine work?” The resounding answer was yes! In a 28 patient study, the 14 patients under doctor Cowden’s care made dramatic improvements in all key symptomatic areas and went on to recover their health. The 14 late stage Lyme patients that did antibiotics failed to make much improvement.  The key to the recovery of the 14 Lyme patients under Lee Cowden’s care was the incredibly comprehensive and individualized care they received.  Yes, they took antibacterial herbals including the newly introduced Samento rainforest herb, but the additional holistic support was a key to full recovery.

After recovering in 2003, Jack Miller moved to Arizona and enrolled in a college of natural health.  Dr Cowden also moved to Arizona in 2007 so that Jack was able to begin directly training with him in Phoenix, Arizona as he completed his degree.  The training included evaluative kinesiology, Electro Dermal screening, homeopathy, natural detoxification, Bio Energetic medicine, homeopathy, and herbalism as well as many other modalities.  Later the Cowden Support Program was developed as a standardized protocol to try and duplicate the benefits of the original Cowden pilot study.  This natural protocol currently for sale through the supplement company Nutramedix (not owned by Dr. Cowden) is excellent. Of course it cannot possibly duplicate the benefits of working with a practitioner like Dr Cowden M.D., or Jack Miller  CTN, or another practitioner trained to individualize the support program and bring in additional modalities that could be key to the healing process.  This applies to both Lyme disease and many other health conditions with common underlying root causes of toxicity and infection.

Jack Miller’s Credentials as a Holistic Health Practitioner

Jack Miller CTN established Natural Health Sciences of Arizona, LLC in 2007 and functioned in a consulting capacity until graduating with highest honors in 2010 from a reputable traditional naturopathic school and successfully completed the exam with the American Naturopathic Certification Board.

Dr. Lee Cowden Biographical Info

How I became interested in medicine and the type of medicine practiced.

In 1975, I moved from arid Lubbock, Texas to hot and humid Houston, Texas to attend medical school at UTMSH.  Soon after arriving in Houston I developed allergic rhinitis, then allergic sinusitis, then infective sinusitis, then bronchitis, and finally pneumonia.  Isought help from the chairman of the UTMSH Allergy and Immunology department, then the chairman of the UTMSH Ear, Nose and Throat department and finally the chairman of the UTMSH Pulmonary department.  I continued to get progressively worse, despite following the instructions of these chairmen and taking their recommended drugs.  Fortunately, my wife’s grandmother came to visit us in Houston.  She was a school teacher and self-taught nutritionist.  She took me to the health food store and got me started on some vitamins, minerals, and herbs.  I then rapidly improved and was able to perform well in medical school again.

In my spare time during medical school, residency and fellowship, I read books on orthomolecular nutritional therapies, on Western herbal therapies, on Eastern herbal therapies, on homeopathy, on fixed magnetic therapies, diet, lifestyle, and so on.  As I learned new things, I would apply this new knowledge to my own health and the health of my family and friends.  The success that I had with these integrative therapies gradually improved.  In 1984, I finished my fellowship training in cardiology and critical care medicine at St. Louis University and opened a partnership practice with another doctor who had gone through the same training program with me. We were on the staff at several hospitals and did hospital rounds twice a day, mostly in the intensive care units.  I saw many of my patients improve to the point of leaving the hospital.  However, after a month or two, many of them were back in the hospital with the same problems, because they had not changed their lifestyle or diet nor supplemented with nutrients. After one year of this type of practice, I decided two things. First, I was intervening much too far downstream in these patients’ lives to make the kind of difference I wanted to make. And second, I realized that I could no longer, in good conscience, practice a type of medicine on my patients that I then knew was inferior to the type of medicine I was practicing on myself, my family, and my friends.  I then set up a preventive medicine/preventive cardiology practice in St. Louis.  Shortly after that, I moved to Dallas, Texas.  I could not find another doctor who had a similar philosophy of practice, so I rented an office space across the street from the busiest hospital in Dallas. As fate would have it, my office was also between the elevator and the busiest cardiologist in town. Many patients came to see me after they left the office of the cardiologist down the hall, who had a four-month waiting list.

I often recommended nutrients to my patients and would send them to local health food stores to get their therapy. The health food stores soon started referring patients as they saw my patients coming in with better and better health each visit. The patients who were referred were those who had failed conventional allopathic medical therapy and had failed self-treatment. My practice grew from a few patients in 1987 to four thousand patients in 1994. I had to close the Dallas practice in 1994.  Because of the extreme stress of that practice, my wife, who helped manage the practice, and I had both developed unstable angina (a heart attack waiting to happen), as well as likely malignant conditions.  I used only natural, non-invasive means to treat my wife’s and my conditions. When I went back into practice after recovering our health, I spent much of my time travelling and teaching, which I still do to this day.

Areas of greatest interest in medicine.

I have a passion to educate health professionals how to use all the different diagnostic and therapeutic modalities that are available in integrative medicine to help their patients, especially those patients who are given no help and no hope by the allopathic medical community.

Therapeutic modalities I have used.

Diagnostically, in addition to the usual allopathic history-taking, physical exam, laboratory testing and imaging procedures, I have used evaluative kinesiology, Chinese pulse assessment, sclerology, iridology, Chinese tongue and fingernail evaluation, and various forms of electro-dermal screening.  Recently, I have found the fully-automated, quantitative electro-dermal screening systems to be the most useful single diagnostic aid. Therapeutically, I use diet, lifestyle counseling, emotional counseling, Recall Healing, EMDR, REMAP, Thought-Field Therapy, orthomolecular nutrient therapy, herbal therapies, homeopathic therapies, fixed-magnetic therapies, pulsed-electro-magnetic frequency therapies, oxidative therapies (ozone, IV hydrogen peroxide, etc.), color therapies, laser and other photonic therapies, sauna-therapy, colon hydrotherapy, lymphatic-drainage, modified fasting and various other detox therapies, German Neural therapy, reflexology, electro-acupressure therapy, Ki-Iki-Jyutsu therapy, and prayer (just to name those I use most often).

Health conditions with which I have had the greatest success.

I have had very good success treating non-invasively the following conditions: atherosclerotic disease, cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, all types of arthritis, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, Autism, most cancers, type 1 and 2 diabetes, chronic sinusitis and a variety of other chronic diseases.
