Infographic - How the brain sometimes does not work so well.

When we see how the brain sometimes does not work so well together, it helps us understand the symptoms we may be observing. The brain through its symptoms is requesting help. Neurofeedback assists the brain parts to work together cooperatively and may reduce or eliminate symptoms.

Who is Brian?

(This is the first part of a three-blog post examining Brian and his family’s journey with neurofeedback.)

Who is Brian and why might you be interested in this story? Below is a real story that happened to a family with their child. That child’s name was Brian. Brian had multiple challenges, some of them severe. Everyday all over the world many parents experience a journey similar to Brian and his family. See if you can relate to some of what Brian’s family went through. Does any of it resonate with you or sound familiar?

Imagine if you will that you’ve got a child that seems a bit ‘different.’ Perhaps the child has their own way of doing things. They may be having problems in school, at home, or with their peers. They may be giving you a hard time, acting-out, are angry, or possibly even get physically aggressive.

You’ve tried everything you know to better your child’s situation but are at a loss. Your well-meaning friends have been of little help as their children are ‘normal.’ You are crest-fallen. You wonder, why did this happen to us? Out of desperation you seek professional help for your child’s problems.

In one of your numerous appointments with numerous child professionals, things go terribly bad. One of the professionals mistakenly points the finger at you. The implication is that your parenting is responsible for the child’s behavior. You are devastated by the allegation. You are even more devastated that professional help is not improving the situation with your child.

Brian’s story typifies an experience that far too many families face. In Brian’s case, his parents were able to find relief for his symptoms with neurofeedback. Brian’s behavioral issues for the most part went away with his neurofeedback training and he got a more ‘normal’ life. His family finally found the relief they sought. Next month we will explore in detail Brian’s challenges.

What is Neurofeedback?

When people have asked me the last couple of months where I am working now, I tell them San Diego Center for Neurofeedback. More often than not, they reply, "Oh. Is that for brain injury?" I can understand why, as our society is not used to thinking that electrodes placed on certain spots of the head can increase brain strength in areas that can also help "everyday brains" improve "normal functioning".

In my couple months here at San Diego Center for Neurofeedback, I have already witnessed amazing improvements in quality of life of our clients. Some of the specific areas of improvement I have seen include reduction of headaches, less negative thoughts, increase in motivation, and increase in self-control. These improvements have happened in children and adults.

Some of the other symptoms that neurofeedback can help with are:  Anxiety,  Depression, Attention (including ADHD), Sleep, Sensory and Cognitive Symptoms, Physical and Behavioral Symptoms, Immune, Endocrine and Autonomic Nervous System, Pain, Appetite and Eating Disorders, Attachment and Personality Disorders, Developmental Disorders, Brain Injury and Seizures, Peak Performance, and Medication Efficacy.
