Understanding Neurofeedback with John Mekrut

Episode 26 of Happy and Healthy Over 40: Understanding Neurofeedback with John Mekrut. This is a conversation with leading Neurofeedback expert, John Mekrut. We discuss the human brain, getting older, training your brain through Neurofeedback – and bees!

John Mekrut’s Bio

Mister Mekrut is the owner of The Balanced Brain Neurofeedback Training Center which specializes in training the brain in self-regulation for maximum performance. He is the father of two teenage girls. One of his daughters is on the autistic spectrum. Neurofeedback training helped her improve her self-regulation and stop taking medications. It was a wonderful transformation and set her on a path of success in school and life.

His experience with his daughter, led John to train at the Othmer Institute in Woodland Hills, California. John trained with Sue and Siegfried Othmer. They are two pioneers in Neurofeedback training.

“I keep myself informed about the latest developments in neuroscience, attend professional development courses and am always looking to add elements of mind/body work to my practice. Since the brain does not work in a vacuum, I encourage proper nutrition, sleep habits, and behavioral changes that will aid in the work of properly re-regulating a disregulated brain.”

John’s decade long experience with biofeedback and Neurofeedback technologies has made him a recognized leader in his field.  He is the President of the Western Association of Biofeedback and Neuroscience. It is the oldest professional organization for biofeedback professionals and for the second year in a row.

John is also included in the TransTech 200 as one of the two hundred thought leaders promoting the use of technology for mental, physical and spiritual wellness. John Mekrut is a sought after speaker in a variety of  venues. He maintains a robust clinical practice serving clients from toddlers to senior citizens.

What are some applications for Neurofeedback?

John Mekrut utilizes state of the art technologies, which provide direct awareness of the brain’s own signaling. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to build new neural pathways and increase blood flow to specific regions that need it, physically rewiring your brain to transform the way you think, feel, and experience the world. It is taught to re calibrate its behavior and promote stability and flexibility of response.

The clinical applications go back over 30 years. The applications include improving the symptoms of complex and developmental trauma. Some of the issues addressed are: ASD, ADHD, ODD, anxiety/depression disorders and many more.  The holistic nature of the training complements and augments any other interventions that may comprise a treatment plan.

This led to Mr. Mekrut’s association with Hope Psychiatry, where integrated modalities are the cornerstone of long-term recovery. John is a valued member of the team, and his work is part of the integrative effort to improve the lives of the growing community.

Relieving Suffering Through Emerging Bio-Technology

What could Einstein accomplish if he was alive and healthy Today?

Relieving suffering through emerging Biotechnology, is an informative and refreshing conversation with CEO of Bioquark, His company is committed to developing medicine that will be used to regenerate and repair the complex organs and tissues of our bodies. In this episode, Ira explains the future of medicine, and it’s looking bright.

A Dark Past Leads to a Bright Future

Imagine that your cruising down the boulevard on your motorbike. The engine rumbles underneath you. You feel like the king of the world. You’re off to meet some buddies, for some fish tacos and beers, by the beach.

BAM!

Your life has suddenly changed for the worse and forever. The doctors tell you how lucky you are to be alive. Loved ones keep telling you, “I told you so” and “Motorcycles are so dangerous”. None of this helps you – But you know what might just help?

Cutting edge biotechnology, is changing mankind’s future. Bioquark, and other biotech companies, are inventing medications to help people who’ve lost limbs grow new ones. Many with spinal injuries will walk again. Organ transplant lists will become a thing of the past. You will be able to regrow kidneys, and other organs. Your doctor will not have to worry if your immune system will reject the organ. because it will be your own!

Bioquark is also working on reversing the aging process through biotechnology. They’re studying some amazing creatures in nature, and our own DNA, in order to understand how to turn  on genes in our bodies, that have laid dormant for thousands of years. Creatures like jellyfish, lizards, and sharks hold the keys to the future of modern medicine. Mr. Pastor and his team have learned a lot from studying the genome of these animals and comparing it our own.

“Combining regenerative biology, molecular biology, and biological cybernetics, Bioquark’s main objective is on developing a new type of medicine called combinatorial biologics, which take a unique approach to reversing life threatening disease, and aging, as opposed to just treating the symptoms of these conditions.”
