Neurotherapy is a clinically proven, non-drug method of treating ADD/ADHD and other learning disabilities
Neurotherapy is an innovative, non-drug treatment using EEG Neurofeedback to create positive, lasting changes in adults and children.
At the Enhancement Institute, neurotherapy is used to help the individual train his or her brainwaves to produce more of the faster brainwaves associated with concentration and focus.
Someone with ADD/ADHD has an excess of slow brainwaves associated with daydreaming, which makes it difficult to concentrate long enough to accomplish a task quickly or efficiently.
Once a patient learns to produce faster brainwaves, they can access them as needed to better perform everyday tasks such as:
- Following directions
- Working analytical problems
- Staying focused
Diminish the symptoms of ADD/ADHD
Most patients are able to diminish the symptoms of ADD/ADHD in a few short months and therefore significantly reduce or eliminate their use of medications.
In addition to ADD/ADHD, other disorders helped by this program include head trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety and other psychobiological disorders. Neurotherapy appears to produce changes in brain chemistry, which may underlie some personality disturbances.
