Brainmaster: A New Way To See Your Brain

Many of you have heard me talk about Brainmaster, a brain-mapping technology developed for neurofeedback. It enables you to see a map of the electrical activity in all the frequencies in all the parts of the brain, in real time.

There is a normative database, that has what is normal for each frequency in each part of the brain. The maps show where you are out, or far out, of the normal. When you know, given the part of the brain, that this is a problem for you, there are different ways to use feedback to bring the brainwaves back towards normal, which by the way fixes the problem. That’s neurofeedback!

Here is an excellent TED talk by someone who used this technology regarding her love life.

We are now launching Brainmaster in our office.

We have three ways you can participate at the beginning.

One: If you want to get an evaluation of your brain, perhaps just to verify what you think you know, debunk (or prove) what others might say in their loving or friendly criticisms, or just to see for yourself what’s really happening.  Of course, you could follow up with neurofeedback, but just seeing yourself (your brain) as your is a good start for most people.

Two: Many of my patients are medical cannabis users, and there is a paucity of real information on what cannabis does to the brain. We would like to do evaluation sessions with cannabis patients, perhaps three different ones. First, unmedicated, then medicated, then wearing off medicated.

Three: Cigarette smokers (or any other kind of addicts) are invited to come in when they are high on the craving scale. First we’ll do the brain mapping evaluation. Then a treatment with Alpha-Stim, ten or twenty minutes. Then we’ll do another brain map to compare. The craving is gone after two minutes, but we like to anchor it. The longer you do it, the longer the craving stays away.

If someone really wants to quit, and they’re willing to participate with us by repeating the brain map every few days until the craving stops coming back, we’ll do it at no charge (except a deposit for taking the unit home with them, returned after they quit and give back the device).

I’m very excited to begin this new part of my career.  You are invited to come and play!

Vitamin D: An Open Letter to the NY Times

Dear NY Times Editor, Your article (8/18/18) on the shadowy money behind the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D3, was wrong on almost everything, in my humble opinion. I have been one of the doctors on the Vitamin D3 bandwagon for many years.  I make no money from any manufacturers or lab companies.  In my practice andRead More

Medical Board Hearing Appears To Go Well

Folks, I just finished the in-court part of my hearing before the Medical Board (see my blog of 7/3/18).  There were 3 days of their two experts (and lack of witnesses) and my witness and two experts.  Now, closing briefs will be prepared, then rebuttals, then a month for the judge to prepare the ruling,Read More

Medical Board Accuses Dr. Eidelman, Hearing July 11-13

Friends, I’m sorry to report that I’ll be facing a Medical Board Hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge in Los Angeles on July 11, 12, and 13.  I’m accused of violating “standard of care” in my issuing a cannabis letter to a 5 year old boy, 6 years ago!  Being completely innocent, facingRead More

Medical Cannabis or Recreational Marijuana

Now that “recreational marijuana” has taken effect in California, many people are confused about if they still need the medical cannabis letter of recommendation. It all depends…  If you are only using small amounts, in your home, perhaps you don’t need the medical cannabis letter.  However, if your medical needs require larger amounts, and youRead More

Naturally, The Body Heals Itself

We can heal ourselves naturally.  In fact, it is natural for the body to heal itself.  That’s what it does all the time. Except sometimes it doesn’t, then we’re sick!  So, either we must remove the cause of the problem, the block of the body healing itself, or we need to add support in theRead More
