How does anxiety and stress affect my brain?
Due to our environment and the ongoing stressors impacting the body every second of everyday, the body can become overloaded and our brainwaves can become abnormal. This most commonly occurs as a result of over stimulation. This irregularity, often found in people suffering with anxiety can create abnormal responses to incoming stimuli. Neurofeedback is shown to normalize brainwaves.
There Is Another Option.
Medications aren’t actually correcting the problem, they are unable to monitor your brain function and know if you need more or less of key neurotransmitters.
How is Anxiety Usually Treated?
The standard protocol for anxiety is the prescription of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) also known as anti-depressants. These work to stimulate the production of serotonin- the “feel good” neurotransmitter. Short term, these are effective in helping a patient “feel good” but they don’t actually correct the problem.
Problems With Anxiety Medication
Medications can have their place in the short term but they do not address the underlying effect of brainwave imbalance. The medications can even go one step further to cause abnormal brainwave patterns themselves which can lead to greater symptoms causing one big vicious negative loop.
How Can BrainCore Neurofeedback Help Anxiety?
Neurofeedback is also known as EEG Biofeedback. It is guided exercise for the brain that is shown to help normalize brainwaves. Neurofeedback is actually a learning modality designed to retrain abnormal brainwave patterns.
