Lyme Disease: There is hope for improvement!
Lyme Disease is an inflammatory disease caused primarily from tick bites. The bacteria that is transmitted into your system can lead to arthritis and neurological / cardiac disorders. It is estimated that 300,000 people become infected with Lyme Disease every year. Sadly, many don’t know they are infected and live with it for life.
Common symptoms are severe headaches, neck aches, heart palpitations, facial palsy, arthritis and severe joint pain. More serious symptoms can include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue and brain fog.
As Lyme Disease gets more serious, it affects the brain. This can cause the brain to send the wrong signals to the body, which can result in severe pain and neurological issues. That being said, a brain-based therapy approach may offer the best long-term results when fighting the effects of Lyme Disease.
Neurofeedback is a popular brain-based therapy with over 50 years of qualified research and case studies. Neurofeedback uses computer technology to help the brain re-establish proper neural connections that have been shut off as a result of illness, injury or infection. Inside the brain are billions of neurons that “talk” to each other through electrical activity. However, these neurons can stop transmitting directly when disrupted.
Neurofeedback helps the brain make these connections again by monitoring brainwave activity and guiding the brain where needed to help neurons connect with each other properly. This process is called neuroplasticity, or the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections following injury or infection.
Over time these connections can be repaired, helping the body as well overcome the bacterial infection Associated with Lyme Disease. Compared to medications, neurofeedback may offer a permanent solution for Lyme Disease and its related symptoms.
Neurofeedback is backed by 50 years of clinical research that has shown permanent lasting improvement in brain health time and time again. And it is already being accepted by many primary physicians and even insurance companies for treatment of mental health issues. When it comes to keeping your brain healthy and in balance, neurofeedback may be one of the best options available.
