One reason I’ve been successful as a health practitioner is that I try things on myself before I ask others to do them. And, my own health is often in need of serious support, so any information I gather is good for me as well! The question this month is: can neurofeedback change your life?
New types of lab tests, new styles of therapeutic healing, new supplements…. I want to check them out and report on them to my clients (and my readers). So of course I started Neurofeedback sessions after my recent Interview with author and Nutritional Therapist Nora Gedgaudas. (Listen to our podcast here). Neurofeedback healed her chronic depression, and we spoke of how the new Cygnet feedback technology is so much easier for the practitioner to “tune in” to the person’s needs than the old style Qeeg feedback.
My issues deal more with anxiety, sleep and brain regulation than depression, but Neurofeedback can apply to a huge variety of issues. Fix the brain and most everything else gets better or easier to deal with, right? Imagine changing your boss to be a better boss in every area…. More sympathetic, better able to place the right people in the right job, more accessible, open to new ideas, etc. That would be a better boss, or brain, to have.
Neurofeedback is SIMPLE! You watch a video that the practitioner encodes with brain frequencies they feel your brain needs and will like, and will steer the brain to operate (permanently) in a better way. Easy! You repeat this frequently for a while, and as the brain learns the new pathways, you can reduce your sessions. Take tune-ups once you’ve reached your goals but need a little support. Find a practitioner using CYGNET software, as per Nora’s advice, (not the older style Qeeg software, if possible).
Find someone in your area and perhaps have sessions with several of them if more than one. I tried both practitioners in my area and found one was brilliant for children with ADD and ADHD and the other seemed a better match for my adult trauma and stress issues. Here’s a few of the issues Neurofeedback may help:
- ADD/ ADHD
- Headaches and Pain
- Learning Disabilities
- Concussion and Brain Trauma
- Bi-Polar Disorder
- Athletic Performance
When you search Neurofeedback in your area, look for Cygnet users rather than the old Qeeg practitioners. While they may still be the best (or only) solution for you, the Cygnet is faster and more fool-proof. I tried Qeeg work some 10 years ago and it did not help me. I hope you will try Neurofeedback. It’s a commitment of time and money, but if it can CHANGE your brain, it is a “cure”, not a temporary fix. I noticed a distinct difference in sleep after my first “demonstration” session, and others I have referred are seeing results too. It’s great to see yourself pick a different response to a situation than you normally would have. Yes! That’s a nice change…. And remember, the brain runs everything, so fix the brain and almost anything can change. Enjoy, and let me know if you have any experience with Neurofeedback to share with others.
