March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!
There is no better time to discuss brain health than now! Unfortunately, many individuals suffer from neurological disorders, and public health records reveal that one billion people are affected worldwide. While modern medicine focuses on using medications to treat such conditions, neurofeedback is an alternative approach that has been making profound progress with over 50 years of research and case studies proving its effectiveness.
To understand how neurofeedback works, it’s important to identify our brains as intricate systems of chemical and electrical activity, producing brainwaves. Our behaviors, emotions, and thoughts are all dictated by the communication between masses and bundles of neurons. Responsible for different body function, all brainwaves are equally important to your well-being.
However, for a variety of reasons (genetic and environment), brainwaves can become dysregulated. Abnormalities in brain function can influence the development of specific neurological conditions. For example, when certain areas of the brain are over-aroused, an individual may experience anxiety, sleep problems, impulsivity, and aggression. Too little arousal in the brain, on the other hand, has been correlated with depression, memory loss, insomnia, and chronic pain.
Now, let’s get back to neurofeedback and talk about why this treatment is worth looking into…
Neurofeedback is a technology that is non-invasive, requires no drugs, and is pain free!
Neurofeedback specifically monitors brainwaves and looks for irregularities, then produces a signal to gently help guide brainwaves back into optimal ranges. Just as your brainwaves can become compromised or out of balance, neuronal plasticity allows the brain to learn new behaviors and regulate brainwave patterns. Like any other organ, your brain is a working cog in the machine of your body that needs both maintenance and attention. With repetition, your brain will learn to operate within those optimal thresholds for improved function.
Brainwave regulation can significantly reduce or eliminate many neurological symptoms.
