Head Trauma and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Treatment with LENS Neurofeedback, Brain Supplements and Mindfulness

” …Use neurofeedback to help with the hyperarousal, confusion, and concentration problems of people who suffer from developmental trauma. ” The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel Van Der Kolk, MD, p. 328″It calmed me down.  It stopped the dissociation.  Neurofeedback made it possible for me to have a relationship.  Neurofeedback freed me up to live my life the way I want to, because I’m not always in the thrall of how I was hurt.” p. 329

The Bad News:
Small bumps to the head add up to big losses of concentration and attention. You don’t have to have a history of contact sports or fender- bender whiplash to suffer from head-trauma symptoms such as memory loss, irritability, foggy thinking, procrastination, light sensitivity, and low confidence.

The Good News:
Inexpensive EEG neurofeedback  can now restore your brain’s optimal functioning after head trauma. Thousands of clients have reported easier thinking, contentment, clarity, energy regulation, greater awareness, new confidence based on experience, better concentration, and wise decisions after their sessions. In Low Energy Neurofeedback (LENS), an EEG reads brainwaves on the head, and faintly echoes them back through the same three sensor wires for just a few seconds.  Our wise brains use this faint yet accurate information to reorganize priorities, letting go of obsessive energy patterns that still defend against the head trauma that has already happened.  The result is a spacious mind, with new resources to easily handle the challenges of today.

More Good News: Most of my health-professional colleagues agree that LENS neurofeedback is the preferred treatment for thinking problems after head trauma.  And TBI symptoms are also the easiest thing for LENS to fix! Therefor we are confident and optimistic with anyone who has a lifetime history of several blows to the head.  The results are evident to the majority of these clients after the first session. Often just a few sessions are needed to restore full mental functioning.
