Say Goodbye To Panic Attacks And Anxiety!

Some feelings of anxiety and worry can be common, but for those who suffer from an anxiety disorder, these feelings can interfere with everyday living. The fear of having an anxiety attack can intrude on your thinking, leading to racing thoughts, and over time, can create the very problem you want to avoid.

One Patient’s Success Story:

“My symptoms included test anxiety and short-term memory loss. I tried therapy and had an IEP in school. After only seven Neurofeedback sessions, I noticed that my anxiety was better. I was more laid back and not talking a mile a minute every day. I can concentrate better, get better grades, and have less anxiety.” Sarah K.

 

 

Just like Sarah, you can wake up every morning feeling calm, and in full control of your thoughts and feelings.

What causes panic attacks?

Panic attacks and anxiety are frequently related to imbalances in Beta brainwaves on the right side of the brain. Dr. Baric uses an advanced technology, known as a qEEG (Quantitative electroencephalogram) to measure and analyze the electrical impulses in each part of the brain. If an imbalance in Beta energy is the cause of your anxiety and panic attacks, this is how we will find that.

This brain map provides specific results used to design your personal neurofeedback training sessions.

Once these measurements are made, a personalized training protocol will be created for you to correct the measured imbalances. Even better – the training is both easy, and fun! All you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch a video!

While you are in a training session, we will have sensors measuring your brainwaves, and these sensors provide the data that leads to audio or visual feedback changes, based on your real-time brainwave activity.

If you have too much Beta energy, like when you are feeling anxious, the sensors will measure this, and cause the show to dim. Over time, your brain recognizes these feedback signals, and learns to develop new, healthier neural connections.

These new neural pathways allow you to think more calmly, resulting in reduced anxiety, and in many cases, can eliminate the panic attack symptoms entirely!

 

Long Term Relief From Anxiety Attacks

Referred to as “operant conditioning”, this is gentle, natural way of teaching the brain to function in a new, healthier manner. Everyone uses this process when they are learning a new activity – such as riding a bike, or how to play an instrument.

Once learned, the new skill is always there for you to call on in your everyday life. Even better, once your brain gets used to using these new, healthier pathways, improvements can continue long after your last visit to our office. The result – No More Panic Attacks!

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.
