Anxiety & Depression Are Caused by a "Functionally Stuck" Brain

Treatment should NOT be a "one size fits all". Anxiety & depression are caused by many types of brain dysfunction.

We start by looking at the brain. EEG brain mapping objectively identifies the specific type and region of brainwave dysfunction causing the anxiety/depression.

We utilize nutritional and neurofeedback interventions directed at normalizing the specific brain dysfunction.

A post EEG brain map objectively measures functional improvements in brain activity after neurofeedback.

What is an EEG Brain Map?

 

An EEG brain map objectively measures brain function for people between the ages of 6 and 92. It identifies specific regions of the brain that may be producing too much, or too little electrical activity compared to a controlled, normative database of your same age and gender.

 

A brain map takes less than an hour to record and is neither invasive nor painful. You simply wear a cap with 19 sensors that record your brain’s electrical activity while you relax in a chair. It is similar to having an EKG record your heart. It’s as safe as a stethoscope!
