Train your brain using neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback or brain wave biofeedback. Neurofeedback is a scientifically validated intervention that uses operant conditioning to train your brain into a more balanced and flexible state.
Drug free treatment for ADHD
Are you sick of the side effects of your ADD medication? Are you concerned about the potential long term effects of taking ADD meds? Have you had limited results with meds or behavioral therapy? If so, neurofeedback may be for you.
Much of the research on brain wave biofeedback is in the area of ADD/ADHD. The results are so impressive that neurofeedback is now recommended as an effective treatment for ADD/ADHD (Arms, 2009). Many people begin noticing results in 1-5 sessions, and find permanent change after 20-40 sessions.
Improve Your Mood
If you have problems with anxiety, depression, the effects of past abuse, PTSD, or worries that you can't shake, neurofeedback may be the next step. Especially if medications or traditional talk therapy have not been effective for you. These conditions may be understood as over arousal, under arousal, or mixed arousal of the brain, and neurofeedback specializes in showing your brain how to get back to a properly regulated state.
Although research in this particular area is scant, one of the main benefits of neurofeedback may be in it's impact on sleep. One person said, "After treatment with neurofeedback, I got the best night's sleep that I've had in 20 years!" Many people report waking up feeling like they've slept more soundly, are more rested in the morning, need less coffee to get going for the day, and feel more alert for the rest of the day. What a gift in this sleep deprived society!
Do you spend your day feeling like you are in a fog? Are you scatterbrained? Is your brain so full of thoughts that you crave a moment of silence from yourself? Do you feel like your thoughts control you? These are all signs of chronic over or under activation of the brain. Brain wave biofeedback can restore your brain to a more balanced state. When that happens you will experience more clear and calm thinking.
Some of the most exciting research in neurofeedback is in the field of addicitons. In one study with people who were getting treatment for alcohol or drug problems, those who received neurofeedback as part of their overall treatment were half as likely to relapse as those who did not get neurofeedback. It's use for smoking cessation has some exciting possibilities.
