Balancing The Brain For Better Health

What if there was a safe, non-invasive system that could improve conditions like ADD, Anxiety, Depression and Chronic Pain for good and even eliminate the need for medications?

Neurofeedback is a non-drug approach that can improve your quality of life dramatically. Imagine getting better sleep, improving memory, having more energy or being more alert and focused? Neurofeedback can do all of this and more!

What does Neurofeedback do?
Neurofeedback does not directly target conditions and symptoms: it corrects irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. This is achieved over multiple neurofeedback sessions, as the brain is re-trained into normal patterns. The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which can impact a variety of symptoms.

Think of your brain as a musical quartet: When all musicians are in sync, the sound is harmonious. But if one musician is out of tune, the overall sound is affected. Brainwaves operate in much the same way, working together to keep your mind and body in sync and running smoothly. But if any brainwaves are off, it can impact your entire system negatively. Many common conditions like anxiety, depression and others can occur when brainwaves are running too fast or too slow. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to regulate its brainwaves properly, which can result in better overall health.

How does it work?
Neurofeedback has 3 main goals:

  • Identify irregular brainwaves (Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta)
  • Guide those brainwaves back into regular patterns
  • Teach the brain to maintain regular patterns permanently

Why does it work so well?
Research shows that people who suffer from neurological issues can have irregular brainwaves. As an example, a person with ADD will have slower Beta brainwaves, which are responsible for attention and focus. They also have faster Theta brainwaves, which can lead to daydreaming.

Training the brain can change these brainwaves over time, speeding them up or slowing them down where needed. Neurofeedback can improve alertness, attention, emotional regulation, behavior, cognitive function, and mental flexibility. When brainwaves are running at the right speed, users will often see a reduction in symptoms.

Results are often permanent, which may allow someone to eliminate medications completely. Where medications only manage the symptoms, the goal of neurofeedback is to address the underlying cause and restore normal brainwave function.
