Anyone who has struggled with an addiction will tell you that addictions are very difficult to beat. Even those who desperately want to quit may go to rehab multiple times before succeeding.
For over three decades, neurofeedback successfully helped reduce cravings and resolve any underlying issues that may be driving addictive behavior. In a 1989 study of veterans with PTSD and alcohol use disorder, 80% of clients were able to remain sober for at least 18 months. Most of the clients also were able to eliminate their PTSD symptoms. ...continue reading →
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) are common issues for both children and adults. Symptoms may include:
narrow focus on the present moment
lack of attention to details
lack of body awareness and control
prone to distraction
failure to consider the consequences of behavior
difficulty with organization
difficulty with sustained projects and following through with chores
frequent fidgeting or squirming
very active, difficulty sitting still
blurting out answers, not waiting their turn
Individuals with ADHD/ADD often perform poorly in school and in the workplace, even though they may be highly intelligent and creative. These attention issues are often inherited, with the condition appearing in multiple generations of the family.
The most common treatment for ADHD/ADD is medication, but when the medications are stopped, the condition returns. Neurofeedback can be a highly effective alternative because it allows the areas of the brain that control arousal and focus to learn how to self-regulate. Neurofeedback can improve school, sport, and work performance, as well as social skills and self esteem. Unlike medication, the effects of neurofeedback training are often lasting, although occasional "touch-ups" are sometimes necessary in order to maintain the progress.
In this video, a boy who had ADHD describes his experiences before and after training with EEG neurofeedback.
I provide several forms of neurofeedback, including the one described in this video.

Who do you think of when you hear the term "PTSD"? Many of us associate Post Tramatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) with veterans, and for good reason. Military service, especially in a combat zone, can lead to PTSD symptoms.
In this video, two veterans share about the PTSD symptoms that had taken over their lives and how neurofeedback helped them recover. ...continue reading →
Military personal sometimes develop symptoms of PTSD as a result of experiencing trauma. This may include experiences such as battle, assault, military sexual trauma, on-the-job injuries, or traffic accidents. Often there have been often multiple traumatic incidents in the service, as well as traumatic events from childhood.
Many who have tried neurofeedback report that this non-invasive, gentle and safe technology has given them their lives back. Neurofeedback can help even decades after the initial traumatic event occurred.
