About Silvia

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 she was announced clinically dead 5 times. She spent her 16th years of life recuperating from her injuries, bound to a wheel chair. It was then that her life changed dramatically by having heightened awareness.

Her career led her to New York in 1989 where she lived for 22-years until moving back to Germany in 2010.

Her personal story with her 5-year old son, who had heart problems and was treated with ONDAMED by her, 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 has been helping chronically ill patients from all around the world. Patients suffering from symptoms related to Lyme disease, Fibromyalgia, depression, cancer, autism, and many various other diseases have enjoyed reaching and maintaining a new level of health being in my care.
There are over 4,000 disease labels; This number is growing by new labels being added on a continuous basis. The more important question for me is what's behind the disease label. In other words, what dysfunction on the patient's body drives her/his symptoms? Where are these dysfunctions located on her/his body? In all reality, any disease and symptoms have one common denominator: dysfunctional cells and tissue. So, we have to search for these dysfunctional cells and tissue and treat these areas of dysfunctions in a personalized and focused way, without harmful side-effects.
Silvia's treatment approach is dynamic. Using all her available senses, she addresses the needs of each individual physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Her approach is not alternative but integrative and complimentary to available medical solutions that make sense.


Being a passionate educator, she is a faculty member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine, and she is on the Advisory Boards of the Medical Wellness Association and the Occidental Institute Research Foundation. Silvia collaborates with community hospitals and university clinics; lectures around the world; and offers specialized courses for healthcare practitioners.

My main task is two-fold: It is my teaching to medical professionals offering a number of advanced courses that focus on extended diagnostic perspectives along with a variety of pearls of wisdom from different cultures, as well as innovative technologies and therapeutic methods. I believe that the better teacher is one who teaches from experience, therefore my other main task is being hands-on work with patients suffering from chronic disease and their related symptoms. I see these patients at my private practice, or I consult with them by phone, skype, whatsapp, fb and other platforms. This allows me to reach those at far distance, giving them tools to help themselves without necessarily having the expense and needed energy and time to travel to my location.
I collaborate with local hospitals and private clinics & practices in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Australia. I am a faculty member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine, Medical Wellness Association in the U.S., and the Occidental Institute Research Foundation in Canada.
I have been lecturing at various well recognized medical conferences around the globe.
Community reach-out programs are important to me. I hope for domino effects taking place in my community and nearby communities touching on other communities by raising hope and awareness for living a healthier and happier life.

I am the author of the book "ONDAMED A story of love, healing, and medical revolution" and I write and publish professional articles. I love to teach! I am the creator of the CME certified "Biomedical Information Therapy (Bio-IT) Symposium" and a unique Intensive Course on Personalized Integrative Medicine. These educational programs are offered several times per year in various parts of the world. 
If you love to travel and explore, then you may love taking part in one of my specialized Intensive Healing Retreats taking place in beautiful and healing locations. You will find more information on my services on this site.
