Brain training is one of the most effective forms of therapy for improving an individual's mental health, specifically when it comes to depression. Learn what it is, how it works, and why it’s so effective.
Talk counselling & coaching are part of the puzzle, but it's important to utilize methods like neurofeedback and hypnosis that reprogram your subconscious
brain How the Brain Works: NeurOptimal® brain training works with the central nervous system and your brain by targeting shifts in the brain’s activity that can undermine optimal brain unction. The brain is the most complex dynamical structure known within the universe. It is able to process massive amounts of information, develop responses and apply these responses for increased efficiency and mastery. Fortunately, consciousness is self-regulated, such that processes not requiring our immediate attention take place outside of our awareness, within the subconscious. This leaves our conscious mind unencumbered to deal with important immediate stimuli that require awareness and focused attention. In learning behavior, a network of supporting neural interconnectivity is established. With repetition, the neural connections are strengthened and more easily activated. Eventually the behavior can become a primary and unconscious response. The brain’s on-going ability to create new pathways and interconnections is essential for learning and adaptability. These features of the dynamical brain have profound implications for day-to-day living. For Example: If we repeat behavior often enough, it develops a self-organizing dynamic that then drives the behavior. Self-sustaining problematic behaviors are largely unconscious and may be as simple as obsolete coping strategies or as extreme as serious psychological and emotional conditions. Once established they influence the way we perceive the world, our relationship with it and our sense of self. Behavioral dynamics are like a car rolling down a hill. If you jump in front just as it starts to move, it is a lot easier to stop than if it has developed momentum. When behavior has an unconscious component, we are unaware of the activation and the build-up of the dynamical intensity. By the time, it reaches awareness [...]
Back from the Brink Following a terrible accident, a mother uses neurofeedback brain training on her comatose son to help him recover from TBI (Tramatic Brain Injury). Attending doctors and nurses are amazed at how rapidly her son recovers.

Neurofeedback brain training regimen reverses cognitive impairment symptoms in over 90% of chemo brain patients tested, a new study by The Applied Brain Research Foundation of Ohio shows. Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) May 01, 2013 -- Zengar Institute, Inc. announced results today of a new peerreviewed study measuring the effects of NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback on patients suffering post-cancer cognitive impairment (PCCI) or “chemo-brain”. The research, conducted by the Applied Brain Research Foundation of Ohio, reported a 91% success rate for PCCI patients using NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback’s brain training system. 21 of the 23 participants in the study reported a complete reversal of the cognitive impairment or “mental fog” commonly associated with chemotherapy treatments. The results of the study were published online April 12, 2013 in Integrative Cancer Therapies, a professional Research journal. "Almost everyone improved and returned to normal levels. That was surprising and gratifying”, research director Jean Alvarez told The Cleveland Plain Dealer earlier this week. The neurofeedback system’s designer, Zengar Institute, Inc. released a statement through Operations Director, Samantha Diavatis, “The results are exciting, but behind the numbers is the fact that our system provided real relief for people struggling with cognitive impairment.” As many as 70% of patients who undergo treatment for cancer experience diminished cognitive function side effects, including impaired memory, loss of verbal fluidity, or increased anxiety or depression. While the cause of PCCI is largely unknown, chemo brain has become a subject of growing interest within the medical community. The NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system used in the study was not altered or customized to treat chemo brain specifically, nor does the training software target specific neural areas to ‘fix’ cognitive performance problems. Instead, the unique NeurOptimal® program prompts the brain’s own natural [...]
