Yes you can overcome Depression 

Depression Can change your life, and over time the symptoms can worsen, if not treated properly.

A huge number of people in America (and the world) suffer from some sort of depression. Even more go undiagnosed. For those who have been diagnosed, the #1 method of treatment is prescription medications. While they do offer relief, consider this: Medications won’t cure the problem or make it go away permanently. They can be considered at best a temporary fix for a chronic problem. This is because research has found that antidepressants do not correct the type of brainwave pattern that causes depression. New evidence has found that on average, antidepressant medications only have an 18% effect over and above placebo effects.

Why is this? The reason is that depression is primarily a brain issue, not a metabolic issue (body based). Medications have no effect on the brain other than to modify blood flow.

Brain maps of people suffering from depression reveal dysregulation in the Alpha brainwaves. Excess Alpha brainwaves can lead to feelings of sadness, mood issues, apathy, loss of motivation, sleep issues and many other negative feelings. Neurofeedback training works by re-training the brain to even out these imbalances and asymmetry.

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback training sessions are actually easy and fun. That is because you are simply watching a movie or listening to music of your choice while the computer does all the work.  Small sensors are placed on your scalp using a conductive paste to measure your brainwave activity in real-time. These measurements provide the computer with continuous feedback on how your brain is functioning, which it then uses to train the brain to function better..

If your Alpha brainwaves go too high, the computer will create real-time changes in the audio and visual inputs in response. Your brain notices and responds to these changes, helping to stabilize your brainwaves over time. Just like physical exercise can create new muscle fibers, neurofeedback promotes new, healthier neural connections in the brain. Best of all, results can be permanent!

Get Off Your Meds!

For those looking for a more permanent solution to depression, neurofeedback is worth consideration. By normalizing brainwaves in the right areas, it may help reduce or eliminate depressive thoughts for good. In fact, people with depression have been shown to see significant improvement in as little as 10 sessions. Sessions are enjoyable and involve watching a movie or listening to music, and results are often permanent.

Neurofeedback is backed by 50 years of clinical research that has shown permanent lasting improvement in many studies. Best of all, it requires no medications and you may eventually get off the ones you are currently using. Call us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about what neurofeedback can do for you.
