Natural Treatments For Disorders of Mind, Mood, and Behavior how conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADD, and addiction are often related to imbalances in brain chemistry that can be corrected with appropriate use of well-researched supple- ments -- vitamins, minerals, amino acids (tyrosine, GABA, DLPA) and botanicals (e.g. St John's wort, ginkgo, ginseng). Their use can enhance the results of neurofeedback, as well.

Samuel Mueller Neurofeedback at Salem-Stadtsteinach

Since 1999, he has been the manager of the Bruderschaft Salem GmbH (Brotherhood Salem, plc) in Stadtsteinach/ Germany, a globally acting relief organisation, together with his father Gottfried Mueller, the founder of SALEM.

 By the longstanding friendship with Thom Hartmann (see The Prophet’s Way), he got to know about ADD and Neurofeedback as an alternative to Ritalin. He decided to include Neurofeedback in the concept of Salem. By different special seminars he learned the application of Neurofeedback from the qualified psychologist Mrs Doerte Klein from Hanover. Since November 2002, there has been the first centre for Neurofeedback in Stadtsteinach/Germany.

Edwin C. May, Ph.D.  is internationally known for his work in parapsychology. Having spent the first part of his research career in his chosen Ph.D.-degreed discipline, Low Energy, Experimental Nuclear Physics, he became interested in serious parapsychology in 1971. At that time, he was peripherally involved in a psychokinesis (i.e. putative mind over matter) experiment that was being conducted informally in the physics department at the University of California at Davis. Starting in August 1974, Dr. May spent nearly a year in India researching so-called psychic phenomena with Yogis and other Masters. In 1976 he joined the on-going, CIA-funded, program at SRI International, and in 1985 became the contractor director is what has become known as the STARGATE program: the US Intelligence community’s use of ESP during the Cold War. The research continues now at the Laboratories for Fundamental Research. Ed and his colleagues have published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journal on the evidence for, applications of, and potential mechanisms for ESP. Dr. May has managed complex, interdisciplinary research projects for the US federal government since 1985. He presided over 70% of the funding ($20M+) and 85% of the data collection for the government’s 22-year involvement in parapsychological research.

They will also focus on the pitfalls and landmines that can come from the undervaluing of transference and countertransference in the biofeedback processes.
