Finding Your Inner Child to Heal Dis-ease
Neurofeedback & Functional Neurology
What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a way to reset and train brain activity to produce proper function. When the brain waves are imbalanced, headaches, anxiety, depression, addiction, procrastination, seizures, tics, tremors, emotional behavior imbalances, mood swings, concentration, brain fog, digestive challenges, vertigo, insomnia, and nerve pain (just to name a few) can result.
Why is it important to have proper brain wave activity?
Brain waves are impulses to communicate information from one nerve cell to another. Brain wave frequencies can change and can get interrupted. Interruptions can come from cell phones, screen time, internet, and chemical imbalances (medications, the wrong supplements, and environmental chemicals. The activity in your brain determines everything you feel and do. Brainwaves tell us a great deal about how you feel and function; your thoughts, habits, stress levels, underlying mood and overall brain function.
First Steps Towards Your Neurological Wellness:
This non-invasive process involves recording your brain waves for six minutes with eyes open and six more minutes with eyes closed. This process takes about 30 minutes total with preparation.
The next step involves the Doctor analyzing your EEG recording to determine Neurological components, as well as irregular brain patterns. This process takes approximately two hours. After which you will meet with the Doctor to understand the results and the path to take moving forward.
Report of Finding
One of the most important factors of your wellness journey is guidance and understanding of your Neurological deficiencies. During your one hour Report of Findings meeting, you will be educated on all the findings. A clear path to better living will be presented to you at this time for you to invest in your wellness needs with ease and support.
What is Brain Mapping?
The brain map is an important tool which allows us to image the brain in realtime. This is very similar to blood work but for the brain. This is am important tool we use to evaluate your brain waves and identify opportunities to improve communication between various regions of the brain.
The brain map is able to capture a window of brain activity, analyze the data and create a visual representation for each lobe of the brain and each specific brain wane (beta, alpha, theta, and delta).
What to expect from a neurofeedback session!
You will be hooked up to a computer using electodes. During a Neurofeedback session, we compare what your brain is actually doing to what it should be doing to optimize health. When your brain is responding to the changes that optimize function, you are rewarded with a positive response on a computer screen. Usually this Neurofeedback is in the form of music or movie.
The sounds and images tell you immediately when your brain approaches a more efficient place and when not. When the movie or sound plays and the colors are bright, this is because your brain is approaching the desired state. When the movie, sound and color fades, this is because your brain is heading the other way. The more your brain is exercised into reaching a more comfortable, more efficient position, the better it gets at it. As with learning any new skill, it simply requires time and repetition.
The process of Direct Feedback is a lot like re booting a frozen computer. The computer measures your real time brainwaves and sends an algorithmic message back to your brain for correction.
Not every person experiences the same symptoms when it comes to Neurological dis-ease. Some people have physical symptoms while others have behavior or emotional challenges. Through the process, patient's who maintain commitment to their health see a remarkable difference in their life.
