Brain Maps & Neurofeedback
Solutions Integrative Health Care is excited to offer brain mapping and neurofeedback brain training programs within our model of integrative health care. Collectively, we spend a lot of time exercising the rest of the body, but it rarely consider ways we can strengthen our brain and improve brain function.
Imagine your body as an orchestra: the brain acts as the composer, working to keep all the musicians (your endocrine system) operating in tune. Just as there are many ways musicians can create discordant sound, there are many was the brain can get out of sync.
Neurofeedback sessions correct irregular brainwaves and modify timing patterns in the brain. Over a series of sessions, the brain relearns the proper patterns it has forgotten, which can result in better overall health.
Neurofeedback training has been proven to help a
variety of conditions including:
ADHD, Autism & Learning Issues
Addiction & Substance Abuse
Anxiety, Depression & Stress
Brain Injuries & Concussions
Chronic Pain & Fatigue
Epilepsy & Seizures
Insomnia & Sleep Issues
- Memory Loss, Alzheimer’s & Dementia
- Headaches & Migraines
- Stroke, OCD & More
I have always been an over-thinker and tend to be anxious. I like to do things naturally, so I wanted to try this before trying a prescription drug. The results speak for themselves. I didn’t realize how exhausting over thinking was until I started seeing results after my first few sessions. I did what was recommended to optimize my results as well. I ate a well-balanced diet, got a good night’s sleep the night before, I would typically workout immediately after each session and I would see a counselor on occasion. I saw the biggest change after completing my first round. It was night and day for me and I found myself being able to transition my thoughts more quickly and without overanalyzing each situation. I completed another round of sessions and continued to feel better. Anytime I was hung up on an issue, Dr. Hamid would use NET to first find out the real problem and then try to help me get past the hurt I would feel when thinking about it. It’s hard to explain, it’s one of those things that you just have to try for yourself. I am so glad Dr. Hamid started working with Dr. Overdorf. I honestly feel like I’m in a completely different place in my life and my mind is so much calmer and I can work through things that come up much easier. I would do it again, actually I am signed up for more neurofeedback sessions, and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone that experiences anxiety or over thinking like I did.
I tried the neurofeedback with Dr. Hamid. I really did it to see if the four concussions I had gotten over the years would show up, which they did. Dr. Hamid then focused on those couple of areas. We were able to correct one and are going to work more on the other at a later date. An unusual thing did occur from the sessions in that I am ADHD and reading is very stressful to me. I hate it and have to read things over and over just to retain something. I have read one short book in my entire life–that is it. After the tenth session, I did feel different. I felt my brain was settling down some, and the sessions made me feel more relaxed. I then tried to read a book and found I was able to do so as well as remember what I read. Huge breakthrough. Where was this when I was going to school? I do look forward to doing more sessions with Dr. Hamid and getting more results.
I have struggled for years with insomnia and periods of anxiety. When my dad was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia (an aggressive and rapidly debilitating form of Dementia, Parkinsons, and Alzheimers) I decided to take some proactive steps to treat my brain and hopefully not suffer the same tragic diagnosis. So far, I have done a little more than half of the recommended treatment and started to have a better quality of sleep and my short-term and working memory seem to have improved as well. The process has been painless and I can say the sessions sometimes have been the best part of my day. I look forward to continuing seeing changes that can support my goal of a better quality of life.
