Does your anxiety prevent you from living a happy life? Do you suffer from uncontrollable panic attacks?

Anxiety and panic disorders can control your life. 

Neurofeedback is a proven safe, drug-free, and noninvasive treatment for anxiety, panic attacks and other stress disorders.    

What is happening in my brain during a panic attack or when I have anxiety?

Using our simple noninvasive qEEG we conduct a brain map by listening to your brainwaves.  In most cases, patients who suffer from anxiety have abnormally high levels of beta brainwaves in the wrong side of the brain, which keep your brain in an alert state.  Though beta brainwaves occur normally in our everyday activity, excessive amounts of these waves cause unnecessary elevated stress levels.  When these excess patterns occur, anxiety and panic attacks are prevalent.

 

How can neurofeedback reduce my anxiety or panic attacks?

Neurofeedback uses operant conditioning to help guide and reward the brain to a healthier calm state.  By generating the appropriate brain waves, the brain is able to stabilize moods preventing panic attacks and anxiety outbursts.

How do you know if this can help me or my loved one?

Monica’s Story

My son has been dealing with anxiety for 18 years we first noticed it when he was in like 3rd grade, he would just shut down and stare up into space. He was too overwhelmed with anxiety he would get a test and just write his name on the test and he could not get past number one. So over the years we tried everything.  We’ve done traditional medicine and homeopaths, we’ve done acupuncture, we’ve done coping mechanisms, herbal medicines, supplements, and vitamins.  We’ve been working on it for years and then we heard about neurofeedback and I thought why not we’ve done everything else.  I didn’t know if some lights and looking at TV would somehow magically solve our problem, but he’s gone all summer.  He’s really come out finally, I think what I’ve always seen as a mom.  I knew what he could do, he knew what he could do but, when we would leave the house he just would be seized with anxiety.  When we ran errands we could only do one a day.  He would come home and he would have an upset stomach. He would go to his room and wouldn’t talk.  He was just too overwhelmed with everything.  After neurofeedback he can now run 6 or 7 errands.  He actually volunteers to go get his passport so he’s even willing to consider an international experience, which before we wouldn’t even travel very far because going too far from home would stress him out and he would have panic attacks.  He would stop breathing and get lightheaded.  He wouldn’t want to leave the house.  Now he’s excited about going to college.  I’m excited that he now can make choices based on what he wants to do rather than the side effects his anxiety is going to cause him. – Monica

Neurofeedback offers a safe, chemical-free alternative to traditional treatments and is supported by over 50 years of research and clinical trials. Our unique approach combines neurofeedback and specific nutritional supplements promoting optimal brain health.

As with many medical conditions treated by traditional medicine, the default approach to treating anxiety disorders is too often a long and side-effect-heavy prescription drug plan.  The overuse of anti-anxiety medication is helping to fuel the epidemic of overdose deaths related to prescription drug use in the United States.  The American Journal of Public Health reports that overdose deaths involving anti-anxiety drugs rose 429% between 1996 and 2013 (3.07 per 100,000 adults in 2013, up from 0.58 per 100,000 adults in 1996).

Neurofeedback, which is 100% drug free, offers patients an opportunity to treat their anxiety and panic attacks without the concern of creating additional health risks.

1. Many anti-anxiety drugs can be habit-forming

2. Withdrawal can occur even without addiction

3. Serious side-effects can occur

4. Patients often require several different drugs before finding the one that works

5. Anxiety medications treat the symptoms, not the underlying causes

Additional Information

Yes, Neurofeedback Therapy is a clinically proven treatment for anxiety disorders.

There are many research studies that show positive support for neurofeedback as a treatment for anxiety. Please
see a few examples below and don’t hesitate to contact MyBrainDr for additional information and studies.

Orbitofrontal cortex neurofeedback produces lasting changes in contamination anxiety and resting-state connectivity.

View Study

From the Abstract:

“NF altered network connectivity of brain regions involved in anxiety regulation: subjects exhibited reduced resting-state connectivity in limbic circuitry and increased connectivity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. NF has been shown to alter brain connectivity in other contexts, but it has been unclear whether these changes persist; critically, we observed changes in connectivity several days after the completion of NF training, demonstrating that such training can lead to lasting modifications of brain functional architecture.”

“Training also increased subjects' control over contamination anxiety several days after the completion of NF training. Changes in resting-state connectivity in the target orbitofrontalregion correlated with these improvements in anxiety. Matched subjects undergoing a sham feedback control task showed neither a reorganization of resting-state functional connectivity nor an improvement in anxiety.”

“These data suggest that NF can enable enhanced control over anxiety by persistently reorganizing relevant brain networks and thus support the potential of NF as a clinically useful therapy.”

A review of EEG biofeedback treatment of anxiety disorders

View Study

From the Abstract:

Alpha, Theta and alpha-theta enhancements are effective treatments of anxiety disorders (Table 1). Alpha suppression is also effective, but less so (Table 2). Perceived success in carrying out the task plays an important role in clinical improvement. Research is needed to find out how much more effective they are than placebo, and which variables are important for efficacy. Variables needing study are: duration of treatment, type and severity of anxiety, number and type of EEG waveforms used, pretreatment with other kinds of feedback, position and number of electrodes, and presence of concomitant medication.
