Why Choose Neurofeedback?

Actually, the answer is very simple and straightforward, 40-45 years of research, over that time, the results from neurofeedback have consistently improved the efficacy rates get better and better such that now neurofeedback is a level four or five intervention for many psychological disorders which we don’t have other high quality interventions for, anxiety, depression, ADD, ADHD. By the way, level five is as good as it gets. So, there are hundreds of studies that have supported these conclusions and yet it’s often not well known because a.) it’s not a pharmaceutical agent and most clinicians aren’t that aware of it b.) it takes time it’s not a quick fix, and we’re a society that tends to like those quick fixes.

But unlike therapy, medication, other treatment techniques, and the research is really clear if you look at this by the way, you things might improve for a bit but when you in therapy a year later most people are worse than they were when they began therapy, medications ,you don’t even have to stop medications they kind of have a significant placebo effect and then they begin to drop it when and then people want to change have another type of medication another type of medication. So, but the bottom line is: there are no side effects with neurofeedback, well very rare people get tired a little bit and sometimes they complain of headaches, but there are no serious side effects because we’re not coercing the brain, we’re not forcing anything upon the brain, it’s a very organic process where the brain moves into a better function, better feeling State, very temporarily and we take that opportunity we seize that opportunity to ceaselessly, ceaselessly reward every one of those and the brain then learns from that over time.

Here’s Why Use Neurofeedback:

So, the bottom line is, we have this whole list of reasons why you would use neurofeedback a.) it works b.) there aren’t side effects c.) it’s sustaining the results last typically and most of the follow-up studies suggest because what’s happening is we we’ve taken a brain that was locked down right, it’s kind of working against itself and as we free it up with neurofeedback. it appears that in many cases, that brain is functioning better six months later or a year later for many kids with ADD, kids with anxiety.

When they go through a full treatment of neurofeedback, the results suggest 15 to 20 points Improvement in their IQ. That’s a full standard deviation of improvement so there’s a list of reasons why you would choose neurofeedback, keep in mind that neurofeedback produces this incremental change over time, incremental improvements, and so if you’ve imagine a stock chart where the stock is going up right, that’s what it looks like it’s sort of add a little bit of jumps and then dips and jumps but it’s not a straight course it never is, but the results are consistent, they are compelling and it is an extraordinary technology provided that it’s coupled with an understanding of how to shift the environment so that everything that’s high in our child is doing supports a more forward-focused change process which is what neurofeedback is all about. Hope that helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out, take care now.
