What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and pleasant process where brain waves are monitored in real time and integrated into a feedback protocol to produce positive changes in your brain’s bioelectrical activity. The process of adjusting brainwave activity is known as operant conditioning which is a method where rewards for positive behavior increase learning capabilities.
Neurofeedback (brain training) is a groundbreaking approach that utilizes advanced computer technology along with the professional expertise of the staff at Integrative Medicine of Idaho to guide the brain into a more balanced and healthy pattern. We use the Clear Mind System and QEEG Data to create a personalized protocol to balance your brain’s electrical activity, often leading to a reduction in neurological symptoms.
Over 1,000 studies have been published that are related to Neurofeedback and Biofeedback. Multiple studies of animal and human subjects in peer-reviewed journals have shown that brainwaves can be changed through operant conditioning used in Neurofeedback. The results have reduced the symptoms of seizures, migraines, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, depression and more.
Neurofeedback is ideal for helping people with symptoms such as:
- ADD / ADHD
- ANGER MANAGEMENT
- BIPOLAR DISORDER
- BRAIN INJURY
- CHRONIC PAIN
- EPILEPSY / SEIZURES
- LYME DISEASE
- MEMORY LOSS
- OCD / TOURRETTE’S
- STRESS / PTSD
- SLEEP DISORDERS
- SUBSTANCE ABUSE
- ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE
How does Neurofeedback work?
Your brain produces four primary types of brain waves: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Beta is primarily active during your awake state, which is the majority of your day. Alpha has to do with your subconscious and is dominant during relaxed states when your eyes are closed but you are not yet asleep. Theta is present briefly during the periods before you fall asleep and before you fully wake up. Delta is primarily active when you are asleep.
All of these brain waves are equally important to your health. Neurological disorders can be attributed to specific brain waves. For example, when you have brain irregularities caused by a head injury, your brain may have too much frontal Theta or Delta being produced when you are supposed to be awake and alert. By retraining these abnormal patterns in the affected areas, symptoms can be improved or eliminated.
