Brain fog refers to irregularities and challenges with thought processing, memory and concentration.
While not formally classified as a medical condition in and of itself, brain fog is often a symptom resulting from other medical conditions. It’s a type of cognitive dysfunction marked by memory problems, lack of mental clarity, compromised concentration and an inability to focus.
Some medical professionals also describe brain fog as mental fatigue. Depending on the severity of your brain fog, the condition can interfere with your life at work, school or home.
Brain fog doesn’t need to hold you back from achieving goals and being successful in your life. Studies have found that Neurofeedback therapy, also called Neuromodulation therapy, is effective in improving attention and working memory performance.
Effectively, at our practice we use qEEG to create a map of your brain and identify where you are facing challenges in processing information and self-regulating in the areas of memory and concentration.
This process identifies specific regions of the brain that may be producing too much or too little electrical brainwave activity when compared to a controlled, normative sample of your same age and gender.
After we complete the brain map, we develop a regime of neurofeedback sessions to address your unique and specific needs.
Neurofeedback therapy sessions are all natural and pain-free, detecting the root of the problem within the brain so long-term functional changes can be made to improve symptoms of brain fog – without any negative side effects.
The early symptoms of Lyme disease, a condition known to be spread by ticks, may include a distinct rash, fever, aches, joint pain and fatigue. The disease is usually treated with a rigorous course of antibiotics. While this usually clears the illness, long-haul patients may experience Lyme symptoms long after the completion of antibiotics. This chronic illness can be marked by cognitive difficulties – such as issues with concentration and memory – as well as depression, insomnia, muscular pain and fatigue.
Ongoing research from Johns Hopkins University has revealed that Lyme disease patients in the post-treatment phase exhibit distinctive changes in white matter and other brain tissue physiology. The same research also identified irregular activity in the frontal lobe, a brain area responsible for memory recall and concentration.
Neurofeedback, while not a primary treatment of Lyme disease by itself, can help rebalance some of the neurological irregularities associated with the condition. As a result, the Neurofeedback treatment, which is also called Neuromodulation therapy, can alleviate some brain and nervous system related symptoms that long-haul Lyme disease patients often experience.
At our practice, we adapt treatment plans to account for individual needs and tolerances. We start out applying qEEG technology to map the brain and identify where dysfunction lies. When we have a picture of the patient’s brain wave activity, we can pinpoint the imbalances triggering the symptoms. We then tailor our protocols to target those specific areas.
