These brain waves or frequencies are labeled Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta & Gamma. Dysregulation & disorganization of these brain waves leads to various challenges and is ultimately caused by a combination of physical, chemical and emotional stressors in-utero or after birth. These stressors cause what are known as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
Physical stressors that affect brain function include concussions, whiplash, strokes or medical procedures like radiation. Chemical stressors affecting brain function include insults from nutritional deficiencies or neuroinflammation resulting from infections and toxins like chemotherapy & heavy metals. Emotional stressors that affect brain function include psychological trauma experienced during critical periods of neurological development in-utero or following birth.
These stressors combine to form a perfect storm that can lead to emotional, cognitive and behavioral issues like Alzheimer's & dementia, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, reactive attachment disorder (RAD), anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), sensory processing disorder (SPD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder (BPD), fibromyalgia (FMA), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), 'chemo brain', and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). This dysregulation can also contribute to other health conditions including cancer, migraine headaches, chronic pain, autoimmunity, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), constipation, acid reflux, insomnia, high blood pressure, memory loss, epilepsy and seizures. Even in the absence of clinical symptoms, a poorly regulated brain can inhibit school, sports & work performance and even decrease IQ.
Traditional therapies often address these brain related issues on a biochemical level with medications, however, this approach often does not address the underlying causes of the of the brain dysregulation and comes with significant short-term and long-term side effects. The future of brain therapy, addressing brain related issues on a bioelectric level, has finally arrived.
The brain is an amazingly adaptable organ capable of learning & changing through a process known as neuroplasticity. Abnormal brain waves or electrical signals can be disrupted and new waves generated that teach the brain to enhance its function and performance over time. Utilizing state-of-the-art, radiation-free brain imaging techniques, we can map brain waves to determine if there are issues in the brain's circuits and firing patterns. If there are problems, state-of-the-art brain therapy and training, which includes neurofeedback, can be used to restore normal brain wave patterns & resolve symptoms. We invite you to explore how neurotherapy & neurofeedback can help you or your child.
"In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy [as neurotherapy] it would be universally accepted and widely used." -Frank H. Duffy, Neurologist
