I have been a researcher, educator, speaker and consultant in holistic natural health and wellness, human nature, personal growth and life improvement since the 1970's.
Through seminars, lectures, consultations, writings, recordings, radio, television and the internet, I have communicated the natural wellness message of stress reduction and better nutrition, as well as personal growth modalities.
I am a native of Akron, Ohio, and the father of four successful adults who were raised with a natural health diet and lifestyle and holistic education.
Academically, I have a Bachelor of Arts (1969) with honors in economics, social science and philosophy from Ohio University, a Master of Arts (1972) in religion with emphasis in psychology (especially the work of Carl Jung), and a Master of Divinity (1973) specialized in counseling, from Hartford International University for Religion and Peace (formerly Hartford Seminary) in Connecticut.
I worked for a church during the grad school period, which was part of a coalition of downtown churches in Hartford. I was running programs for children and young adults in the inner city, plus serving on a church staff. I was listed in the 1972 edition of Outstanding Young Men In America in respect of this work.
In an interesting adventure exploring society and the economy, my unusual array of work experiences have included for varying lengths of time: intern in international finance for officers of a giant corporation, Teamster Union freight dock worker, factory worker, farm hand, actor, professional singer and musician, substitute teacher, math teacher, basketball referee, director of music and arts programs, minister, church youth ed director, professional counselor, holistic natural health consultant, author, speaker, financial planner, business owner, storekeeper, internet marketer, corporate officer, non-profit board president and salesperson (including many various products and services).
Since the folk music era of the 1960's, I have been performing music before many audiences with voice, guitar and harmonica, as a singer and songwriter of mainly philosophical songs about life and people. You can hear recordings at JonDavidMiller.com.
Over the years, I have been active in numerous organizations as founder and/or board member, including a non-hazing college fraternity chapter, an urban neighborhood children's program, an urban coffeehouse arts center, "new thought" metaphysical groups, a natural foods cooperative, a holistic health center, a community garden project, a publishing company, life improvement seminars, several musical groups and theatrical productions, three health products businesses and several websites.
As a student of social science and human nature, holistic natural health and wellness had become important in my work as I studied yoga, relaxational breathing, iridology, kinesiology, organic agriculture, herbs, nutrition, water, magnetic applications, homeopathy, enzymes and more.
I made my first visit to a health food store for brown rice and sesame seeds in 1968 when I was a college student. By 1973 I was eating mostly natural foods and telling others about it.
I brought natural and organic foods to my hometown in 1975, opening a natural foods store that became the food co-op. Soon I was distributing organically-grown produce to local health stores and restaurants long before certification was instituted. A couple years later, I was co-authoring a newsletter about organic foods and the problems with chemical agriculture and pharmaceutical medicines.
Since writing for several cultural publications in the 1970's, I have edited and published various newsletters: OrganoFarms News (co-editor 1978-1981); Wellness Notes (1981-85); LifeLines (co-editor 1993 to 1997), The SCOOP (a newsletter for Akron's Cooperative Market, 2001-2004), and Natural Health News, an e-newsletter. I have written many articles for ActivistPost.com.
After my first book came out in 1978, for many years I appeared as a guest on radio and television, conducted seminars, spoke at natural health meetings, organizations and conventions all around the country, and published additional articles, books and recordings.
I have met and learned from many of the best-known and respected teachers and leaders in the fields of personal growth, arts, culture, natural health and success, and have actually had face-to-face conversations with a number of fairly famous people.
In the 1980's I was doing many consultations, workshops and health-related services in holistic health centers, including my own office and store, and at a chiropractic clinic where I was the natural health consultant.
In the early nineties I was part owner of a company distributing water purifiers and our own pollen extract and herbal products. We had a website starting in 1993.
By 1995 the business I started, Natural Health Enterprises, was doing business online, operating ReallyWell.com since 1999, with FlaxFood.com and Waterus.com added a little later. SurviveTheChanges.com, NaturalHealthPortal.com, HolisticReality.com, YESwise.com and AwareMore.com also present various aspects of my holistic educational content.
My commitment is to serving people with helpful information, greater knowledge and highest quality products at low prices to help you improve health and well being.
