Dr. Aretoula Fullam

Dr. Aretoula Fullam, a resident of Ridgewood, New Jersey, received her PhD in Psychology with specialty in personality, health psychology and human development from Rutgers University. Dr. Fullam continued her career in psychology and health as a Clinical Instructor and Research Fellow Scientist at UMDNJ – New Jersey Medical School focusing her research in disabilities, especially Multiple Sclerosis. Following this, Dr. Fullam accepted a position at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, as a Research Fellow in Medicine, where she conducted research and studies in the Division of Sleep Medicine and Mind/Body Medicine. She has trained in Clinical Mind/Body Medicine with Herbert Benson, MD. Dr. Fullam received additional training from Harvard Medical School and is certified in "Mind/Body Medicine", in “Spirituality and Healing in Medicine" and in "Meditation and Psychotherapy."

Dr. Fullam, conducted an extensive research on the role of mental representations developed in infancy known as Internal Working Model (IWM), or Delta/Theta Programming, and how this developed emotional/cognitive “inner knowing” affects the decisions people make in their lives, their choices they make in romantic relationships, success, problem solving, life outcomes, interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships, dealing with stressors and in health (emotional, physical, psychological/mental and immunological).

She extended her research to study Emotional Intelligence, emotional expression, emotional ambivalence, resilience, psychopathology, social support, perceived stress and its effect on attention. She also included in her research variables and experiments to test for cardiovascular activity and immune response under stress and non-stressful conditions. The results from her studies demonstrated in more than 1000 participants and at a level of significance p<. 00001, that the programming (conditioning) of the early developing brain predominantly vibrating at delta and theta brain wave frequencies, affects significantly the later performance in life and health in all the areas studied and mentioned above.

Dr. Fullam developed a course in Emotional Intelligence, which, has been adopted in the curriculum of Rutgers University, where she presently is a professor in the Department of Psychology.

The uniqueness and the advantage of learning from Dr. Fullam is that she offers you the best of both worlds, the world of science and research from the world's best Medical School and University, Harvard Medical School, and the best from the Mind/Body/Spirit research. She shares her knowledge with you, combining her expertise in the field of Psychology, Personality, Health and Science and her expertise and training in the field of Parapsychology, especially Psychorientology (the science of educating the mind to function consciously within its own psychic dimension; it means becoming aware of the enormity of human potential and learning how to actualize this potential for the betterment of humanity), researched and developed by Dr. Jose Silva. Even though she investigated different disciplines and approaches to metaphysics and spiritual growth, received extensive training in Hypnosis and other meditation traditions and has been trained in Kundalini Yoga, Relaxation Response, TM, Zen Buddhism, Soto Zen, as a scientist, she has found The Silva Method, a superb training that brings science and spirituality together in (a) a unique scientific way; (b) is suitable for all people who truly desire to experience the mind/body/spirit connection; (c) is offering immediate results with validity and reliability; (d) provides an objective evidence of the subjective psychic functioning ability at the completion of the training, and (e) anything applied from the outside only treats symptoms temporarily. When you know how to do it yourself with conscious awareness at the alpha level of consciousness, you TREAT the CAUSE of the problem, addiction, habit, symptom or illness. That is why the Silva Method has worked better than hypnosis, yoga, biofeedback and other procedures. The Silva Method succeeds where other methods succeed, and it also succeeds where they (the other methods), fail - because with the Silva Method training you are helping yourself. This is the Silva Method's "secret" of success.

Dr. Fullam, is showing you how to turn anxiety, stress and worries into positive energy for your success, transforming unproductive habits into productive ones and how to get in touch with the “Genius” within you, by eradicating the limiting beliefs - IWM programming - that holds you back and replacing this failure system with a productive IWM, a new belief system that leads you to the “Genius default" within and the fabulous life you deserve to live.
