A special NYCRA-NEWS interview with Dr. Leslie Valle-Montoya on the ONDAMED®/BrainTap Connection
Supporting the public access to the vast arena of pain/injury relief and therapy solutions, the clinical members of the NY Cancer Resource Alliance (NYCRA) freely shares professional insights and resources for better health and wellness. Oftentimes, our members spotlight experts and developers who share remarkable out-of-the-box innovations, protocols and strategies that bring modern concepts that support the news understanding about non-invasive and safer health alternatives. This includes the latest innovations in diagnostic and therapeutic solutions.
Through a recent virtual health technology conference about biofeedback innovations at the Women's Diagnostic Network, we learned about the work of Dr. Leslie Valle-Montoya of Santa Barbara, CA. "Dr. Leslie" (as she is often called) incorporates her medical training and other extensive knowledge in functional and integrative medicine. She works with patients challenged by cancer and chronic disorders through integrating Bioenergetic medicine, nutrition and Biological medicine. She offers patients a set of options between conventional and alternative medicine to heal and rejuvenate- pursuing a mind-body-spirit paradigm where individuals can reach optimum health and a resilient outcome.
Years ago, I learned about biofeedback and electromagnetic field therapy. The market was robust with choices, but something called ONDAMED® won me over- largely due to the functional health strategy by design, indicating a heavy focus on a whole-body care. It combined the diagnostic abilities of biofeedback science to "communicate with the body" to monitor conditions and imbalances. Then the intuitive energy healing aspect comes in the form of its PEMF element (pulsed electromagnetic field) to 're-balance' the body or support the body to repair itself painlessly and non-invasively. Treating patients showed many positive results including tissue stimulation for pain relief in soft tissue injuries and wound healing.
Next, patients would tell me about having difficulty with reducing their stress. I was introduced to BINAURAL BEATS therapy, an auditory illusion perceived when two different pure- tones, separated in frequency by only a few Hertz, one in each ear - the brain is left with a unique third tone. Many claim that binaural beats can induce a meditative state more quickly and is said to: manage/reduce anxiety, improve focus and concentration, support positive moods and even help with pain management.
In addition, I discovered advantages to things like RED & BLUE LIGHT therapy as far as helping somebody not only meditate and 'train the brain' in noninvasive ways. Light has its own frequency just like our tissues have their own frequency. To penetrate light into the meridians in the ear, you are delivering the therapeutic frequency to our body to amplify and help certain tissues to restore balance. Not only is light therapeutic or soothing, but it is known to actually heal tissues with its unique frequency and applications.
Upon review of various models and designs, I narrowed my choice to the device called "BrainTap". It works great as guided meditation and it actually feels a little like EMDR when they're using it.

ONDAMED® Biofeedback/PEMF & the Doppler Ultrasound
8/5/2022- An exploratory analytical project is co-directed by Dr. Bard (NYC) and Dr. Silvia Binder (Germany) at the Bard Diagnostic Imaging research facility. Combining the diagnostic prowess of the ultrasound has become Dr. Bard's preferred choice for imaging because of its (safe) non-radiation and real-time properties- and added to this is its ability to perform near and within other electronic regenerative technologies (like the ONDAMED® Biofeedback and PEMF) without any interference.

I find these innovations to offer so many advantages to our patient community. As one example, I have patients with addiction disorders- for things like smoking per se. You have to train the brain to deal with the addiction. You can't just remove the source and think that it's going to work. So not only does frequency medicine with ONDAMED® and water treatment help to regulate, the binaural beats work in conjunction to "train" the brain to open up and let go of that addiction.
Another common advantage to this energy therapy is managing ANXIETY within the younger generation. I've seen a lot of teenagers in my office recently for just anxiety purposes, which I think has been amplified during this recent era. To introduce BrainTap while on an infrared bed, or sitting in ONDAMED® session has opened up that possibility that they can be able to manage their anxiety, which is sometimes not easy to do with a counselor or a psychologist. The use of BrainTap has been extremely beneficial for the young population. There are numerous ways to incorporate different methods of biohacking your mind and body into your daily routine.
SHAPING A SPECIALIZED PRACTICE IN
Developing my program was based on combining my medical training with exploring what's out there. I also maintain a constant ear for what's current by listening to my patients. I am a big proponent of technical research, and part of being in this information age includes SHARING what's available. Most often, I also get educated by my patients on their findings because there's a lot of modalities and therapies out there that were not part of my conventional training. I find that today's patient (including those in critical situations) are armed with an open mind to explore and try new and innovative solutions, alongside the access to unlimited resources thanks to the web. The idea of collaborating is not limited to doctor-to-doctor. Once I found enough answers that made sense to me, I learned the different ways of detoxing and amplifying your immune system. I introduce this entire health program to my patients as part of an educational effort.
