Why Brain Health Matters
The brain plays an active role in nearly every function of your body. From logic and critical thinking to imagination and talent; from digestion and sleep quality to heart rate and recovery, the brain is there, making sure everything runs smoothly.
So when the brain isn’t working properly, it can affect us in many negative ways. When we lose our temper or experience extreme sadness or lack of control, it could very well be that our brain is out of balance. An improperly balanced brain can lead to many neurological problems, such as:
- ADHD, Autism & Learning Issues
- Addiction & Substance Abuse
- Anxiety, Depression & Stress
- Brain Injuries & Concussiona
- Chronic Pain & Fatigue
- Epilepsy & Seizures
- Insomnia & Sleep Issues
- Memory Loss, Alzheimer’s & Dementia
- Headaches & Migraines
- Stroke, OCD & More
We Can Help Balance Your Brain!
The Taylor Chiropractic & Laser Center, Inc. offers a scientifically proven system that can safely fine-tune the brain to eliminate the triggers that often cause the issues above. We can also help overcome attention and focus issues, as well as improve memory retention. Best of all, this process is drug-free, safe and non-invasive.
What if you could eliminate or reduce chronic neurological conditions just by watching a movie or listening to music?
That may sound too good to be true, But this amazing technology works by re-aligning brainwaves while you are engaged in a movie or music. Decades of research have shown that properly aligned brainwaves can positively affect the way our body functions.
How Does It Work?
Neurofeedback does not directly target conditions and symptoms: it corrects irregular brainwaves and modifies timing patterns in the brain. This is achieved over multiple neurofeedback sessions, as the brain re-learns the proper patterns it has forgotten. The result can be 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. But if any brainwaves are off, it can impact your entire system negatively. Many common conditions like anxiety, depression and others can occur when brainwaves are running too fast or too slow. Neurofeedback teaches the brain to regulate its brainwaves properly, which can result in better overall health.
Is Neurofeedback New?
No. In fact, it has been around since the 1960’s. Only in the last 10 years has the technology advanced enough to come out of the university labs and into the doctor’s office. There are decades of research and case studies that document the effectiveness of neurofeedback in improving brain health.
Neurofeedback has 3 main goals:
- Identify irregular brainwaves (Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta)
- Re-establish neural connections to adjust brainwaves
- Train the brain to maintain regular patterns permanently
During a session, small electrodes monitor your brainwaves while you watch a movie or listen to music. The entire process is safe, non-invasive, uses no drugs and does not involve any radiation.
When the computer detects irregular patterns, it triggers a change in volume. This change alerts your brain to refocus in order to restore the volume. While a single instance is not significant, thousands of them over multiple sessions can be quite effective in teaching your brain to avoid the irregular patterns.
This process of retraining the brain to self-regulate properly is called Operant Conditioning. Over the course of multiple sessions, the brain eventually learns to make healthy patterns on its own. Results may often be permanent, meaning no further neurofeedback sessions are needed.
