Ah…How to begin a blog about the process of regulating the dysregulated brain while experiencing the symptoms of a dysregulated brain…Quite challenging.

I decided to do BrainCore therapy after learning about its success in treating many neurological conditions and its aid in maximizing the brain’s overall cognitive performance. BrainCore Neurofeedback is a sophisticated, effective and easy to use brain exercise system for both the young and the aging brain. After all, I could certainly use any and all assistance in optimizing my brain function. Who couldn’t?

BrainCore therapy is a non-invasive, non-drug, cutting edge approach to addressing neurological disorders resulting from tension on the nervous system caused by trauma, drugs, toxins, a subluxated spine, stress, or poor nutrition. Using neurofeedback it enables the nervous system to retrain itself to create new more appropriate wave patterns in the brain and to break the cycle of NDS (Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome), resulting in the alleviation of symptoms. Among the disorders it can address are ADD/ADHD, insomnia, migraines, memory loss, eating problems, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, ASDs, learning disorders and Panic/Anxiety disorders. The symptoms I am interested in alleviating include anxiety, insomnia, memory problems, difficulty making decisions and depression. But my biggest complaint is that my overall ability to focus and concentrate has quite deteriorated over the last several years, hence my challenge writing this blog.

I spoke to Dr. Chiappino and Dr. Eissler and we thought it might be informative and helpful to document the actual process from beginning to end so that others might have a better understanding of what to expect from the experience. So here goes:

Upon making the decision to embark on BrainCore therapy, and having spoken to the doctors, I received an email instructing me to login to www.mybraincore.com using my email address and a patient number assigned to me. The email also gave detailed instructions on what to fill out after logging in. This included a patient profile, a physical symptom checklist, and a cognitive/emotional checklist. After filling each page out I clicked save and Voila! I had taken the first step on my journey toward greater brain health. Now the sky is the limit! And…

I was ready to make an appointment for my QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) Brain Mapping.
