Specializing in Helping People Overcome Brain and Mental Health Conditions
Neurofeedback is an enjoyable, painless, and extremely effective training program that is used to improve and treat disorders of the brain and the central nervous system, including ADD/ADHD, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, stroke, seizures, involuntary tics, tinnitus, coordination and mobility problems, insomnia, cognitive deficits, focus and concentration issues, headaches and migraines, pain, and other problems. Neurofeedback trains our brain to stabilize irregular brainwave patterns that have caused mental health symptoms. Once our brain learns to regulate and stabilize its brainwave patterns, the effects and improvement in symptoms are usually permanent. Neurofeedback is like an exercise for our brain just as weight lifting and yoga are exercises for our muscles.
Neurofeedback training usually consists of the client watching a movie or listening to music while sensors are attached to their forehead with gel.
These sensors provide real-time feedback on the client's brainwave activity. When the client's brainwave activity changes in the direction that is desired by the neurofeedback training protocol, a positive "reward" is given to the individual via the movie or music and the brain learns to keep that brainwave firing at its optimal speed. Neurofeedback can either help train the client's brain to speed up or slow down certain brain waves so that they'll fire at optimal patterns, and this helps to permanently improve or eliminate the client's symptoms.
Many people don't realize how important nutrition is to brain health and well-being. Just like every other organ in our body, our brain requires certain micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and macronutrients (fats and proteins) in order to function properly.
In addition to becoming malnourished, the brain can also become inflamed just like other parts of our body. A malnourished and inflamed brain has a very difficult time regulating our thoughts, emotions, and behavior, and this is often a major contributing factor to people developing mental health or neurological problems such as ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, hyperactivity, chronic stress, and fatigue.
Life Wellness specializes in helping our clients utilize optimal nutrition so that their brains can be properly nourished, supported, and strengthened. Many people have significantly improved their emotional and mental health, reduced or eliminated their symptoms, lowered their stress levels, and increased their energy levels by removing inflammatory, processed foods from their diet and by focusing on eating properly-prepared real, nutrient-dense whole foods.
Our nutritional therapy services are available in person, by phone, or by video chat, so this service is available to you no matter where you live.
Psychiatric Services and Medication Management
Our goal is to help our clients overcome their mental health conditions in a holistic, non-pharmaceutical manner that addresses the root causes of their symptoms so that they can experience long-term improvements in their health, mood, and functioning. However, some people with very severe symptoms can benefit from psychiatric medication for a period of time to help balance their symptoms while they're pursuing long-term solutions to their mental health issues. We also work with people who are currently taking psychiatric medications and who would like to reduce or stop taking their medications. Natural and holistic interventions such as neurofeedback, nutritional therapy, and lifestyle changes help many people significantly improve their mental health and functioning so that they'll eventually be able to stop taking their medications.
