Dr. Blanc has long devoted himself to the integration of Western and Eastern Medicine. He has been in practice for over 30 years; but never stopped learning.
Besides being Board Certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, he became and remains a trained Psychoanalyst. To this day, psychoanalytic understanding is alternative and complementary to medicine. proper understanding of dreams, for example, can inform one's spiritual and emotional development and therefore guide success.
Dr. Blanc then also earned a separate California State license in Acupuncture from Samra University of Oriental Medicine. But, still not content, he sought additional training in Acupuncture from Neil Gumenick, M.Ac. in 5 Element Acupuncture <www.5elements.com>; a type of acupuncture which is more readily aligned with physical, spiritual and emotional issues.
Along the way, Dr. Blanc developed his own set of modern herbal formulas which are available at www.midwestfareast.com.
Dr. Blanc now could conduct focused psychotherapy of many kinds, but also he could address blocks in Qi energy that might otherwise defeat success. Also, via the selection of herbs and nutrition he could deal with general health.
Still not completely satisfied, Alan has recently added one more technique to his range of treatments, a form of EEG brain wave biofeedback. www.brainpaint.com.
He is in consultation with Bill Scott, the developer of Brain Painting biofeedback programs.
This may all sound a little overwhelming, but when put in combination these techniques yield the amount of power needed for success. They address the real life problems of people and free them to grow, to solve health issues and enrich their life.
Dr. Blanc is open to treat many conditions including blocks in creativity when people are not satisfied with the fulfillment of their potential. Dr. Blanc has presented a unique theory-and now often quoted in the general literature-concerning Vincent Van Gogh, explaining how his attempt to "Paint from Imagination" initiated by his temporary roommate Paul Gauguin, led to his emotional breakdown.
Dr. Blanc has a long ongoing interest in Inflammatory Bowl Disease and Gastrointestinal problems including Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's disease. He has attended conferences on this subject for many years and is familiar with these conditions and their treatment.
Other areas of expertise include: anti-aging, stress reduction, EEG treatment for addiction, attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), anxiety disorders, and depressions.
