Learn why Neurofeedback is right for you!
Did you know that over one million American, including Canadian military veterans are living with mood, anxiety, (PTSD) post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, insomnia and other disorders. While Veterans Affairs, or the VA, attempts to find successful therapies for veterans, many individuals are left feeling hopeless and defeated when none of the treatments they’re offered work. Naramata Lifestyle continues to explore new therapies for their patients, several are turning to neurofeedback, a form of biofeedback which empowers individuals to regulate their brain waves with technology.
Neurofeedback, also referred to as neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback, uses real-time displays of brain activity (called EEG) to teach the brain to function in a more regulated, balanced, and healthy manner.
Generally, a healthy brain is designed to adapt to changes in our body and environment. A healthy brain can self-regulate, altering its waves to cater to the current situation. In an ideal world, every individual would have a healthy brain and would possess the ability to regulate their moods, anxiety levels, and physical reactions. The reality is millions of people are living with mental disorders and illnesses which prevent them from balancing their brain activity—and many of these Canadian are military veterans or RCMP suffering from service-related post-traumatic stress disorder.
