What is Neurofeedback and how does it work?
Neurofeedback is a therapeutic intervention to improve brain function and regulation.
Neurofeedback regulates and stabilises brain activity, so it can be used successfully to treat a range of symptoms and conditions associated with brain de-regulation. It works by providing high quality feedback directly to the brain allowing it to use its self-regulating mechanism to learn how to work better.
The sensors we attach to your scalp are simply there to listen to the brain; there is no stimulation or signal transmitted by the equipment: it can be thought of simply as a kind of ‘stethoscope’ to see or listen to the brainwaves. The brain does all the real work, adapting in response to the feedback.
You simply have to relax and watch a DVD or play a specially designed game into which the Neurofeedback information is cleverly incorporated.
As the client relaxes, the brain ‘tunes in’ to this feedback and adjusts in response. It is this positive reinforcement in the form of sensory feedback that trains the brain to correct any irregular behaviour it may have been exhibiting.

Peak Perfomance – sport and business performance
Neurofeedback is an evidence-based technology used by sporting champions and increasingly by executives and business people serious about their careers. By giving the brain direct feedback on how it is working, we can train it to work better so you perform better.
Neurofeedback can be used to ‘tune’ well-functioning brains to perform at their peak.
Neurofeedback has been used by an increasing variety of clients seeking peak performance:
- This Wall Street Journal article describes how professional and amateur golfers are using Neurofeedback to maximise their performance.
- The Italian football team that won the 2006 World Cup used Neurofeedback, described
- Chelsea FC are believed to have been using Neurofeedback since 2009 in the “Mind Room” set up by Bruno Demichelis who first applied the technology as Head of Sports Science at AC Milan.
US Special Forces
- Dr Jim Hardt describes how he worked with Colonel John Alexander to develop a programme for US Special Forces. This work is described in the original Men Who Stare at Goats book.

Dr. Thomas Nesslhut
I established a partnership with Dr. Thomas Nesselhut and his clinic because I believe that cellular immunotherapy with dendritic cells is the most complete and non-toxic response to fight cancer.
Cellular Immunotherapy is a medical response that defends that the way to combat disease should be made acting directly on the immune system.
When we are sick it’s because the immune system (our protector against external and internal attacks) is weakened and can’t fulfill its role as our guardian.
The solution is to repair the immune system so it can fight disease. We address the root of the problem instead of focusing on the symptoms that the disease triggers.
Thus the fight against cancer diseases as well as several other is possible by reprogramming the immune system. It is a “tailor-made” solution; unique to each person. The example that best illustrates this solution is the comparison between having a suit made by a tailor, or buy it already made at a regular clothes shop.
Dendritic cell vaccine to fight cancer
To reprogram the immune system of a cancer patient, a blood sample is taken from the patient. These blood cells are cultivated t in the laboratory, where diverse tumor information is given to them. These cells are then programmed to know which are the enemy cells that need to be destroyed and which cells are part of the immune system and should be preserved.
After this reprogramming , these cells are returned to the patient in the form of a vaccine given intradermally. Once returned to the body these cells are spread by the blood and lymphatic systems, thus passing the message to all cells of the immune system with the new instructions of which cells to preserve and which to attack.
This form of treatment is completely non-toxic and does not produce side effects apart from brief flu-like symptoms.
Professor Fred Fändrich
Professor Fred Fändrich is a specialist in autoimmune and degenerative illnesses. His approach to diseases is governed by the principles of integrative medicine: a holistic medical approach that treats the body as a whole and the person as a unique being.
His medical concept and treatment philosophy focuses on two platforms: 1- the use of individual cellular products (produced from the patient’s own blood) and 2 – in regulating the cell environment of the various organs and tissues. To this end, he has developed several unique treatment protocols (based on natural compounds such as amino acids, growth factors, enzymes and proteins) that generate metabolic and immune functions that are essential to the maintenance of our well-being and which stop and reverse the disease onset.
Which diseases are included in this therapeutic approach?
- Cardiovascular alterations and disorders
- Lung alterations and disorders
- Autoimmune diseases
- Degenerative diseases
- Acute and chronic inflammatory lesions
- Endocrine disorders
- Neurological system disorders: Parkinson, Alzheimer and Stroke
Professor Fändrich is the President of the European Society for Autoimmune Disease (EGAI) and is one of the five opinion leaders of the World Transplant Society, Oxford, UK.
He is the Director of the Dept. of Applied Cellular Medicine, at the University Hospital of Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel, Germany and the founder of Blasticon, the owner of a patented technology with monocytes: mature white blood cells.
He has published many scientific papers and clinical reviews under references for Transplantation, Oncology, Regenerative and Cellular Medicine, Immunotherapy and made several contributions to clinical reference books.
