Are You Heading for a Nursing Home?

Are You Heading for a Nursing Home?

About 50% of nursing home residents are under the age of 85. Why are they there?

A significant number of residents have memory problems or problems making daily decisions. Persons with serious dementia certainly need nursing home care. Neurofeedback training can help other older adults who have less-serious memory and decision-making problems to improve mental function and remain in their homes.

Almost all nursing home residents have some type of physical disability that interferes with activities of daily living like cooking, bathing, shopping and cleaning. Many people could remain safely at home, able to do chores of daily living, if only they [...]

The Epidemic of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The human brain is one of the most amazing organs in our body. Its optimal function is imperative for life. It is a very soft structure, protected only by the bony skull. The skull is a hard covering with space between the soft brain and the inner surface of the cranial vault.

A blow to the head or any movement that causes the brain to move inside the skull easily bruises the brain. This is an image of what happens when you suffer from a concussion:

As you can see the brain is tossed around within the skull causing it [...]

Finally, Pediatricians are Waking up!

Believe it or not, I recently received a phone call from a local pediatrician (who is one of the more “open-minded” doctors I have met) asking me to see one of his patients (diagnosed with ADHD) for an EEG evaluation and neurofeedback training. He referred to a recent research paper, published by “Pediatrics – Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics”, http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/133/3/483.full.html

The article appeared in the February 17, 2014 journal. Basically, neurofeedback was used to help students with ADHD gain better concentration, attention and focus. The outcome in the study was quite impressive:
“This randomized controlled trial included

Doctor, There Is Something Wrong With Me!

Doctor, There Is Something Wrong With Me!

I just received three phone calls today from women who were desperately searching for answers to their crazy behaviors and why they don’t feel like themselves.  You may be in the same situation.  Do the following scenarios sound familiar?

  • If you are tired, stressed out, constantly battling weight and with a sex drive that is either gone south or off the planet, there is hope.
  • If you are yelling and screaming at your kids and husband for no apparent reason, there is a reason.
  • If you are in pain during your menstrual cycle so severe that you have to stay home from [...]
