Silvia Binder, N.D., Ph.D.
Naturopathic Doctor
Co-Founder of the Binder Institute for Personalized Medicine
CEO/President Ondamed GmbH Germany and Ondamed Inc. New York



Silvia Binder is the Founder of The Binder Institute for Personalized Medicine in Southern Germany and the CEO of the Ondamed Companies in New York and Germany. She was born in Germany, and grew up in Vienna, Austria, where she earned her degree in business. A motorcycle accident at the age of 15 brought her into a coma for 21 days and announced clinically dead 5 times. She spent her 16th year of life recuperating from her injuries, bound to a wheel chair. Her life changed dramatically ever since by having heightened awareness. Silvia’s career led her to New York in 1989 where she lived for 20 years until moving back to Germany in 2010. Her personal story with her 5-year old son fueled her passion for complimentary medicine. Silvia received her N.D. degree from the College of Naturopathy in London, U.K. followed by her Ph.D. degree in naturopathy. Silvia works with physicians and chronically ill patients from around the world and offers unique Healing Retreats in select locations. She is a faculty member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine, guest writer for FAIM (USA) and lectures and teaches specialized courses on Integrative Personalized Medicine globally and is the author of a number of articles and the book “ONDAMED - a story of love, healing, and medical revolution”.

My main task is the continuing education of medical professionals worldwide by offering a number of different courses, focusing on extended diagnostic perspectives along with a variety of pearls of wisdom from different cultures, as well as innovative technologies and therapeutic methods.
I collaborate with medical schools, local hospitals, and private clinics in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Australia. I am a faculty member of the Medical Wellness Association and a member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine in the US.
I write an online international newsletter, publish professional articles, give presentations at medical conferences, and frequently appear in the media.
Practice activity:
Most of my patients contact me via the internet and come from all over the world. I often support physicians in their treatment of difficult cases and get invited to treat celebrities and aristocratic patients. My community is also of great importance for me, and I treat patients in Schwanau, Baden-Württemberg and its vicinity.
I do not diagnose or treat any diseases. It is not my goal that my patients will depend on me or the treatment I offer. I like for them to assume responsibility for their own health and to actively work on their recovery and develop a healthy lifestyle.
It is my goal to identify the roots of medical conditions and use a non-invasive treatment approach:
1. ONDAMED in combination with biofeedback: localizing physiologically weakened tissue via the autonomic nervous system (patient biofeedback), which may be the underlying cause of chronic symptoms. The stimulation of these body areas by the focused fields generated by ONDAMED induces their regeneration. At the same time, the immune system, the lymphatic system as well as the central nervous system are stimulated and/or calmed. Tissue can be weakened by different factors, including a) inflammation, b) Infections, c) trauma, d) scars.
2. Support of acute disease events, e.g. preceding or following surgical procedures, fractures, sprains, bruises, edemas, infections, etc.
3. Lifestyle counseling
4. Nutrition counseling
5. Psychosomatic counseling to resolve emotional trauma or memories of shock.
My treatments are based on Naturopathic Medicine, traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Anthroposophic Medicine, and Energy medicine. These approaches complement traditional medicine and its various specialties.

Rolf Binder
inventor of the ONDAMED Technology and founder of the Ondamed companies in Germany and New York.

rolf-binderRolf Binder earned his degree in electromechanical engineering in Lahr, Germany, where he then continued to work in research and development at a German Bio-medical technology company for twelve years.

In 1993, Binder came up with a totally new approach to health and wellness with his invention ONDAMED. His goal was to create a treatment modality for the medical field which would offer a specific intervention driven by the patient’s hidden emotional information linking to physiological stress and disease.

In 1994 he founded the company, Ondamed GmbH, adding Ondamed Inc (in New York) in 2002 and, together with Silvia Binder, has grown the Ondamed companies into the leading worldwide provider of medical devices using pulsed electromagnetic stimulation. Binder continues to develop new bio-physical technologies and partnering with other leaders in the bio-medical technology field.
