Mind Alive Inc. – designs and manufactures a series of Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) devices . These products include the DAVID Paradise XL, Paradise XL+, Paradise TC, and PAL. These devices are being used worldwide to assist people from all walks of life to promote better health and increase relaxation. In addition, they have proven effective as a non-drug approach to treating chronic pain, fibromyalgia, insomnia, PMS and Attention Deficit Disorder as well as increasing creativity, improving sports and peak-performance. AVE technology has gained popularity because it has been proven to be a quick, yet safe and effective alternative to many pharmeceutical approaches.
Mind Alive also makes a cranio-electro stimulation (CES) device called the OASIS used for anxiety, drug rehabilitation and Attention Deficit Disorder. We also manufacture a highly sensitive electrodermal activity (EDA) (also know as GSR) biofeedback device called the EDA Bioscan, used to learn about a person’s reponse to stress and train for effective relaxation. Also available is the ABT Bioscan, a small, portable neurofeedback device that measures brainwaves, which is used for aleviating the symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADD, hyperactivity, and insomnia. Both the EDA Bioscan and the ABT Bioscan can be used with all of the DAVID Paradise products to enhance the entertainment experience.

University of Natural Medicine – Message From The Founder: When I first developed these Natural Medicine programs in 1989 it was with a vision and purpose. This was to create a University that would be one of the foremost educational institutions for Natural Medicine, create training programs that integrate healing practices from all disciplines and cultures, and to provide availability and affordability of education in natural medicine for people around the planet. It is now the year 2003, and I am very happy to say that with the collaborative efforts of our dedicated and committed international network of professors, clinicians/practitioners, board of directors, administration and staff we have fulfilled many of our goals while we continue to grow and expand, offering new programs and worldwide opportunities for education.
