Mindfulness is best…

 

W360 Brain Health Services

As part of our holistic approach to the individual, balancing the mind is equally as important as balancing the body. Integrative brain health services are an effective complementary approach to enhance mental wellness and mind-body balance. We offer a comprehensive package of solutions that can provide answers for neurological dysfunction, and offer new hope and direction for improving patient outcomes.

 

• Neuroimaging
• Comprehensive assessment of medical & mental

health history

• Nutrition & Lifestyle Evaluation
• QEEG Brain Map
• Neurofeedback Lab analysis of neurotransmitter

balance and hormones

 

Our Brain Health Team includes providers of advanced functional neurodiagnostics and neurotherapy.

 

  Common symptoms we can treat include:
• Brain fog
• Learning difficulties including dyslexia
• Fatigue, fibromyalgia
• Chronic pain

Common conditions we focus on include:

• Depression
• Anxiety
• Insomnia
• ADD/ADHD
• Migraine Headaches
• Autistic Spectrum Disorder
• Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery
• Mild to moderate cognitive impairment from age-

related decline, and/or vascular or Alzheimer's 

dementia.

 

A personalized program is developed for each individual and may include some or all of the evaluations described in greater detail below.

Neurodiagnotic Brain Mapping

We utilize an advanced neurological technology called a QEEG which produces a brain map that allows us to quantify the power, amount, distribution and ratio of various brain waves.  To conduct the test, we place a cap on the individual’s head. The cap contains sensors that measure brainwaves of various frequencies.

 

The Quantitative EEG Neurofeedback Test Shows Us How the Brain Is Functioning
• Delta Frequency – this is slowest frequency which is dominant when we sleep. If there is too much activity in the delta frequency, there are problems with motivation, the ability to focus and maintain attention. ADD sufferers will exhibit heavy activity in this frequency.  
• Theta Frequency – is a slow frequency that is present between sleep and wakefulness. Too little activity can lead to hyperactivity. However, too much activity can lead to inattentiveness.  
• Alpha Frequency – is one of the brain’s most important frequencies because it is a medium frequency that allows the individual to feel relaxed but alert. It enables individuals to accomplish tasks easily. Reduced amounts of alpha frequency cause worry, insomnia and an inability to effectively complete tasks which are common complaints of ADD sufferers.  
• Beta Frequency – is a medium fast frequency which is dominant when we are concentrating. We use this frequency to process information, problem solve and make solid judgments. Reduced activity in this area is associated with the ADD symptoms of inability to sustain attention and complete tasks.  
• High Beta Frequency – is a fast frequency used when we process high level information. A good memory comes from a healthy level of high beta frequency. An elevated level of high beta causes hyperactivity and distractibility.  

 

Healthy individuals have a balanced level of activity in each of the frequencies.  Excessive or severely decreased levels cause problems with attention, hyperactivity and mood regulation.

 

Neurotherapy

Our brains are constantly changing frequencies as we listen, focus, problem solve, relax or do a number of other cognitive and behavioral functions.  We do not have the ability to consciously demand that our brains produce varying amounts of wave activity, but we are able to train our brains to function better through neurocorrection.

 

Based on the results of the evaluative QEEG, we place sensors on the head in the places where the brain has been shown to be producing overactive or underactive wave patterns. The sensors are linked to a sophisticated computer that converts the information into visual stimuli on a screen which the individual watches.

 

The individual watches as the visuals change in response to the fluctuations in their brain wave activity. The brain learns what is needed to produce the correct brain patterns. If you do this repetitively the brain starts to produce the desired response with greater and greater ease.

 

Eventually the brain learns to automatically choose the correct wave patterns.  You can see this type of neurological learning when you watch someone learn to walk, ride a bike, drive or to recognize a song. It is the brain’s job to make doing tasks as fast and efficient as possible which means replacing old patterns with new, more effective patterns.
