How It Works: BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy

Understanding Neurofeedback

BrainCore Therapy provides a unique drugless approach to treating Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (NDS) that may be associated with the symptoms of many neurological based conditions including ADD/ADHD, Headaches, Migraines, Learning Disorders, Memory Loss Associated with Aging, Overeating or Binge Eating, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Panic/Anxiety Disorders, and Insomnia, just to name a few.  NDS is a condition that results from tension on the nervous system caused by subluxation, poor nutrition, stress, drugs or trauma. The BrainCore technology and science is based on a training procedure that effectively regulates the nervous system providing proven relief of conditions associated with NSD.

The Brain

In order to understand how BrainCore therapy works we first need to understand how the brain works.  The systems that govern the human brain are the most complex and compact on earth.  In order for the brain to function optimally, the parts of the brain must talk to one another constantly.  The brain accomplishes this communication by transmitting electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another.  The electrical signals are expressed as brain waves. Using non-invasive surface electrodes that are placed on the surface of the scalp, the BrainCore system is able to translate these brainwaves on to a computer screen for observation – It’s like having a window to the brain.

Brain Waves

There are four distinct brain wave frequencies:

  1. Beta Waves: Produced when you are awake and engaged in active thought
  2. Alpha Waves: Produced mostly when you close your eyes and relax.
  3. Theta Waves: Produced when you start to fall asleep.
  4. Delta Waves: Produced when you are sleeping

Over forty years of research has demonstrated that, for any given circumstance there is an accepted normal pattern of brain wave activity.  This healthy pattern is referred to as Neurological Regulation.  A healthy, balanced, and properly regulated nervous system will produce the appropriate brain waves at the appropriate levels and at the appropriate times for any given situation.  For example, it is appropriate for the brain to produce Beta waves when it is focused on a task however in some individuals, focusing on a task results in the production of Theta instead of Beta.  Outwardly this particular patient would demonstrate symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity – much like we see in some cases of ADD/ADHD.  This reversal is just one example of Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome.  Some of the conditions that may be the result of NDS include: ADD / ADHD, Headaches/Migraines, Learning Disorders, Memory Loss, Overeating / Binge Eating, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Anxiety Disorders, Insomnia, Age Related Cognitive Disorders.

The purpose of the free, non-diagnostic consultation is for BrainCore of Manasquan, LLC to determine if your case is qualified to warrant further investigation with the quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG). We only accept cases that we feel will be best helped by neurofeedback.   Not all cases are accepted for care.
