Dr. Miller uses an Integrated Traditional Chinese, Auricular (ear), and Western Medical approach to acupuncture in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions. Acupuncture is an essential part of Dr. Miller’s approach to treating stress-related conditions, as stress contributes to all chronic diseases. There is no condition that will not benefit from acupuncture, and as such, it forms an integral part of Dr. Miller’s treatment strategy.

He has devised a cure for herpes labialis – Cold Sore Stop.
