NeurOptimal Neurofeedback: update and summer special

NeurOptimal neurofeedback is an amazing therapy with benefits for autistic-spectrum disorders, ADHD, Lyme disease, depression, anxiety and eating disorders to name just a few.  We have had a wide array of people doing sessions over the past year, with varying diagnoses, and the results have been impressive.

Improved sleep, more positive emotional state, improved memory & cognitive function, and better ability to focus and concentrate are among the top benefits.

Here are what some of our patients have experienced so far:

N.L. is a Lyme patient who has had horribly interrupted sleep for many months.  After just a few sessions of neurofeedback, she was sleeping soundly for hours at a time.  In fact, for the first couple of weeks, she was sleeping 12 hours a night.  We figured her body had some catching up to do!!

E.P. is another Lyme patient who suffers from the debilitating cognitive effects of this disease.  She has had upwards of 20 sessions, and she definitely notices a significant difference.  She reports that she is more centered and balanced and better able to cope emotionally with all the repercussions of her illness.   Her mother noticed that she had started drawing again, something she had not done since she became sick three years ago.  She continues to have “tune-up” sessions every couple of weeks.

One of my most rewarding cases was C.C., a teenager who had been struggling with depression and anxiety.  Below is a letter written by her mother after her 20 sessions.

Dear Dr. Nicola,

I am writing this letter to you with regard to the Neurofeedback treatments you have been administering to my teenage daughter since early November. Prior to beginning treatments with you, my daughter was suffering from 9 out of 10 of the “Symptoms of a malfunctioning Central Nervous System” listed on your website. These symptoms were severely impacting the quality of her life. For the past year and a half she has had difficulty overcoming small challenges and has been easily overwhelmed. Memory problems and poor performance on tasks were making it difficult for her to succeed in school while depression and anxiety had a negative impact on her social life. In October of this year, my daughter expressed a desire to “feel at peace and was tired of hurting inside.” There are no words that can describe how a parent feels when you hear your child say those words.  You were the first doctor I thought of when seeking treatment for her.

I am writing this letter to you 6 weeks after beginning your recommendation of amino acid therapy and 10 Neurofeedback therapy sessions and would like to tell you that I am absolutely amazed at the progress I have seen in her mental health. Lately she has had a spark in her eye and a consistent lift her in her mood. She is progressing well academically and as a junior in high school attended her first winter formal dance this past weekend. These changes have even been noticed by family and friends who are not aware of the treatments she has been receiving. They have simply just commented to her how “happy” she seems to be.

I write this to you with tears of happiness streaming down the keyboard about how thrilled I am with the treatments she has received so far. We are set to schedule an additional 10 treatments of Neurofeedback. If she has made this much progress after 10 treatments I can’t wait to see how much better she will feel after 20!

Many thanks to you and your staff for all the specialized and individual care you have provided us!

– H.W.
