Menssana Mindbody Medicine has been Dr Chris Millar's vision for many years. His principal concern in establishing this practice was to use non-drug solutions where possible and appropriate, and to heal the whole person. He did this mainly by employing nutritional medicine and cutting-edge technology, such as laser therapy and neurofeedback.
The Chris Millar Foundation for Integrative Medicine was set up to preserve and continue his vision, and to promote integrative medicine within the medical profession and the wider community. Integrative medicine is a term used by doctors who combine complementary medicine with conventional medicine.
The Foundation's aims and objectives are:
To honour the work and vision of Dr Chris Millar.
To publicly advocate for the integration of complementary medicine with conventional medicine in general practice, by:

The Connection – Mind your Body
a groundbreaking international documentary about mind-body medicine
After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, journalist and filmmaker Shannon Harvey travelled the world in search of the missing link in healthcare.
From interviewing world leading scientists to meeting people with remarkable stories of recovery from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis, this documentary delves into the link between our mind and body.
At a time when one in two people will be diagnosed with a chronic disease in their lifetime and the global cost of healthcare for chronic illness is in the trillions, The Connection is for people who have tried everything. It offers answers and proves that you can change your mind, change your health and change your life.
