NEUROCORE EMBRACES NEUROFEEDBACK TO TREAT MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

Suffering from mental health or behavioral health issues can be challenging when it comes to seeking treatment. The challenges are numerous ranging from the high cost of treatment to social stigmatization from friends and sometimes even family. In other cases, the illness itself prevents the patient from seeking the right treatment, and they end up living with the disease all their life.

The few that were able to surpass these challenges and get treatment were offered medication and psychotherapy. At the time, science had not yet evolved, and the treatments were not very effective but with time scientists have modernized everything. Pharmaceutical treatments and psychotherapy are combined to treat patients, and the results are better than before.

The treatments come with side effects depending on how the body reacts to the medication, and some patients are not ready to live with the side effects. Not everybody responds to treatment the same way as to some the therapy might be helpful, and to some, it might be toxic. These are the risks involved in undergoing psychotherapy. Neuroscience has however changed the approach to dealing with mental health issues by coming up with a new form of treatment known as neurofeedback. The treatment utilizes the brain’s power to assess different behavioral and mental health problems and then learn and better itself from studying the surroundings of a patient. Many brain performance institutions have embrace neurofeedback and have successfully dealt with diseases like autism, depression migraines, memory boot camp, and adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Neurocore is one of these centers that have incorporated neurofeedback into their treatment. The healing process solely depends on the strength of the brain of a patient. Some patients have stronger and healthier brains than others, and therefore they take less time to heal. Although the diseases might vary, treatment starts in the same manner. The patients are given a hat which records the electrical activity in different parts of the brain to wear. A brain map is then drawn from these records to have a rough copy of brain activity. The brain maps also help to identify further disorders of the patient by checking for irregular electrical activity. This is the beginning of neurofeedback treatment.
