Taylor was a practicing criminalist for over ten years while completing
his ministerial education. He supervised and conducted investigations,
recovery and detection of deception testing. He specialized in physical
security, lie detection, forensic hypnosis and intelligence and counterintelligence
measures. His earliest work with subliminal information processing was
conducted from this setting, including a double blind study conducted
at the Utah State Prison in 1986-87 and published in his book Subliminal
Eldon Taylor has made a life long study of the human mind
and has earned doctoral distinctions in psychology and hypnotherapy. He
is a certified psychotherapist and diplomate with the American Psychotherapy
Association (APA) and a certified hypnotherapist with the American Guild
of Hypnotherapists. At present, he is the President and Director of Progressive
Awareness Research, Inc. and an adjunct faculty member in the Department
of Psychology at St. John's University in Louisiana.
Eldon Taylor has made numerous appearances on television
and radio and his work has been cited in the national press on many occasions.
He is considered by many to be one of the foremost authorities on subliminal
information processing. He has been featured in a 30 minute television
show that focused only on his work and was aired on public television
as well as two three hour national radio shows with host Art Bell.
Eldon Taylor has participated in independent studies regarding
his work with a number of researchers at leading institutions such as
Stanford University, Weber State University, Colorado State University,
Munich University, Bremen University, and the Institute of Mexican Social
Services (Medicine)to name a few.
Eldon Taylor's experimental educational properties (e.g.
Cancer Remission, AIDS, etc.) have been prescribed for patients across
America and Mexico. The data from a longitudinal study regarding these
properties has demonstrated a solid mind-body connection (psychoneuroimmunology)
and has led to the development of new innovative non-intrusive health
care adjuncts. Some of these new evolving technologies have been rigorously
studied in double blind designs, (e.g. depression and attention deficit
hyperactive disorder) and found to have statistically significant efficacy.
Eldon Taylor's books and other works are available in
public libraries and are currently offered in seven languages and in fourteen
countries. He has led many work shops and made presentations in the United
States, Mexico, China, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Eldon Taylor's work has been featured and written about
in major popular publications of a diverse nature, such as Omni, Newsweek,
Body Mind Spirit, and The Spinal Network.

In addition to the papers and presentations listed, many
articles and re-prints written by Eldon Taylor have appeared in his newsletters,
The Mind Review and InnerTalk® Review as well as on the net in his
own sites and many others. Eldon Taylor also co-hosted a one hour radio
show for nine months in 1986 and 1987, originating its broadcast from
Salt Lake City, Utah. The show was a "talk radio" format and
the subjects ranged from brain washing to parapsychology.
Research and research contributions regarding the patented
"Taylor method," also known as Whole Brain® InnerTalk®
1998 Under the direction of Dr. Jose Salvador Hernandez
Gonzalez and on behalf of the Department of Social Security for Mexico,
25 patients were exposed to both video and audio Freedom From Dental Anxiety
tapes for thirty minutes prior to treatment and thirty minutes during
treatment. The conclusion: "..the use of InnerTalk® before an
integral odontologic treatment is 100% effective, reducing patient's anxiety
and the noise made by the high speed hand piece used in this type of work,
and furthermore, reducing the pain suffered by comparison to previous
experience." The report goes on to recommend InnerTalk: "Therefore
it is convenient to promote, among Dental Surgeons, the use of InnerTalk
to improve their patients comfort and achieve a better collaboration to
treatments. In the same way, use will change the Estomologist image (feared
for so many years).
1998 Combining Whole Brain® InnerTalk® Weight
Loss audio and video with Echo-Talk audio and a special nutritional program
developed and marketed by Oxyfresh International, Dr. Harbans S. Saran,
a biochemical geneticist) of the University of California at Irvine conducted
a ninety day weight loss study. Dr. Saran coached each subject to visualize
their clear goal in terms of body fitness and reviewed progress weekly.
Saran reported that 90% of the subjects (10 men and 15 women) lost significant
1997 Under the direction of Maurice P. Shuman, Jr., General
Director Special Programs of Instruction, a Pilot Study was conducted
by Duval County Public School System at the Pre-trial Detention Center
in Jacksonville, FL. Twenty two incarcerated juveniles participated in
a study program using Progressive Awareness Research tapes designed to
assist in preparation for GED examination. "The GED final test results
show that 18 students passed the full GED examination." A follow
up study is currently underway in the same facility.
1993 Thomas Plant, faculty member of Stanford University
and Director of the mental health services for the Children's Health Council,
together with Michael DiGregorio and Gerdenio Manuel of Santa Clara University,
evaluated the effect of Whole Brain® on test anxiety in a double blind
experiment. The statistical data indicated significance supporting the
hypothesis that Whole Brain® subliminal technology could be an effective
tool in lowering test anxiety.
1993 Kim Roche of Phoenix University studied the effect
of Whole Brain® with children diagnosed as having Attention Deficit
Hyperactive Disorder in a double blind experiment. Her findings indicated
a significantly positive effect.
1993 Diana Ashley at the University Of Southern California
studied the effect of subliminally presented reinforced stimuli on factual
material using the Taylor's Mirrored Imaging Processing (MIP) model in
a double blind experiment. Her conclusion found a significant increase
in learning among students in the experimental group.
1991 A study carried out by Prof. Pelka of Munich University
in Germany on a Whole Brain® tape for weight loss, showed average
weight losses of 13 pounds in subjects who used the program.
1988-1991 (Reported in 1992-1993) The findings from a
longitudinal study on the Whole Brain® program for Cancer showed that
43% of the patients who used the program, went into remission. For the
patients who had passed away, the average life span beyond the original
prognosis was significantly extended.
1991 Experimental psychologist, Julian Isaacs, investigated
the effects of the following Whole Brain® programs; "No More
Procrastination", "Time Management", "Confidence Power",
"Freedom From Stress", "Positive Relationships", "I
Am Assertive", and "High Self Esteem." After three studies,
it was concluded that the programs produced significant positive results
that were verifiable.
1991 A double blind study conducted by Prof. Peter Kruse
at Bremen University in Germany, using a specially created Whole®
Brain program, strongly demonstrated the influence of the program on decision
making. Kruse said, "the Taylor Method" works!
1990 A double blind study was carried out at Weber State
University on the effects of the Whole Brain® program "Freedom
From Stress." The psychological test results showed a significant
decrease in stress.
1990 In a double blind study carried out at Colorado State
University, it was found that using the Whole Brain® program "Freedom
From Depression" for more than 17 hours, led to a significant decrease
on the Beck Depression scale. This study not only shows the effectiveness
of the Whole Brain® program, but also indicated that the effectiveness
of the programs were dosage related.
1988-1990 Cosmetic Surgeon, R. Youngblood and surgical
staff tested the effect of the Whole Brain® "Pre And Post Operative"
tape on 360 patients. They reported a decrease in anesthetic requirements
of 32% by volume as compared to a historical control group.
1985-1986 In a double blind study at the Utah State Prison,
which was performed by McCusker, Liston and Taylor, the Whole Brain®
technology was deemed effective in altering self esteem among inmates.
As a result, the Utah State Prison installed and maintains a voluntary
tape library for inmates.
Numerous clinical studies with single and multiple subjects
have also found effectiveness with Whole Brain® in areas as diverse
as anorexia to dyslexia. Additionally, Whole Brain® has been credited
by professional coaches for significantly contributing to winning sports
events ranging from football championships to National and Olympic judo
