Discover a Drug-Free ADHD Solution that Delivers Lasting Results!
People with ADHD are often inattentive, need redirection to stay on task, can be easily distracted, impulsive and hyperactive. ADHD is not just “bad” behavior or lack of discipline – modern science has proven that it is a Brain Problem. It requires a process that targets the brain specifically and does so without drugs. With neurofeedback, children and adults can increase self-control, attention, focus and reduce impulsivity.
It’s Time To Move Into 21st Century Care
Approximately 11% of children ages 14-17 in the U.S. are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Further, research shows 70% of children with ADHD will continue to struggle with significant symptoms into adulthood negatively impacting relationships and employment.
Overwhelmingly, the first line of treatment for the millions of children with this diagnosis is still drugs. These drugs only create a temporary shift in behavior but do not produce any permanent positive results leading to a drug dependance that many find undesirable. Not only that but these drugs often have serious side effects and provide limited relief.
Is medication the best answer or is there a less drastic, drug-free solution to ADHD symptoms?
Actually, there is! It turns out that a scientifically proven alternative solution exists. Our neurotherapy center is the Midwest’s leader in providing cutting edge neurotherapy care solutions for a variety of conditions with a particular focus on ADD & ADHD.
Imagine how much easier life would be if you could eliminate the loss of focus and concentration associated with ADD? Or put a stop to the fidgeting, outbursts, and overall poor behavioral control due to ADHD?
We’ve witnessed first hand, improved test scores and grades, reading comprehension, ability to complete homework without needing outside help, better emotional regulation, healthier relationships and brighter futures for kids and adults in our program.
What does neurofeedback do?
Neurofeedback gets to the root cause of ADD and ADHD by correcting imbalances in brain activity.
Neurofeedback monitors brainwaves in real time and sends signals to help the brain refocus and function better. It does not directly target conditions and symptoms: it targets irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. This is achieved over multiple neurofeedback sessions as the brain is re-trained into normal patterns.
The result is an improvement in brain regulation which can impact a variety of symptoms.
Think of your brain as a musical quartet. When all musicians are in sync, the sound is harmonious. But if one musician is out of tune, the overall sound is affected.
Brainwaves operate in much the same way, working together to keep your mind and body in sync and running smoothly. If any brainwaves are off, it can impact your entire system negatively. Many common conditions like ADD, ADHD, anxiety, panic attacks and depression can occur when brainwaves are out of sync and running too fast or too slow. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to regulate its brainwaves properly which can result in better overall health.
How does neurofeedback work?
Neurofeedback helps the brain refocus and operate better. The process is non-invasive, safe and requires very little effort by the patient.
Neurofeedback has 3 main goals:
- Identify irregular brainwaves (Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta)
- Guide those brainwaves back into regular patterns
- Teach the brain to maintain regular patterns permanently
Neurofeedback monitors brainwaves on the surface of your head by placing small sensors on your scalp. For the next 30 minutes, you get to watch a movie of your choice, listen to music or listen to audible tones. That is all that is required of you. It is non-invasive, uses no drugs and does not involve any electric shocks or radiation.
During a normal session, the computer monitors your brainwaves for any that are out of the normal range. When it finds one, the system triggers a response that changes the movie or music. This change is subtle enough to get your brain’s attention and make your brain focus more. Refocusing corrects the irregular brainwaves which then move into the normal range. At that time, the movie or music will resume normally. This process is called Operant Conditioning. Over the course of multiple sessions, the brain eventually learns to make healthy patterns on its own. At that time, no further neurofeedback sessions are needed and you graduate from care.
How do we know we can help you?
There is no guess work in our office. We use the only non-invasive objective test available to measure brainwave activity, qEEG (aka Brain Mapping). This test is our starting point to determine if you are a good candidate. If accepted into care we do further testing (cognitive performance testing, functional neurologic examinations and neurotransmitter tests) to gain a clear picture of how to best manage your care prescription.
Every person under our care receives individual care there is no cookie cutter care in our office.
