A Natural Treatment for ADHD & Focus Disorders
By some estimates, nearly 10% of children in the US have been diagnosed with ADHD, a number that keeps rising. And it's not just boys, there’s been a surge among girls and mothers.
Normal treatment for ADHD includes medication and behavioral therapy, but science suggests neurofeedback could be beneficial too. If you’re interested in neurofeedback for ADHD, it can help to understand how this natural treatment benefits focus disorders.
What is neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a computer technology that monitors brainwave activity in real time to make subtle changes. Neurofeedback participants usually watch a movie, which dims during desired brain activity and stops during undesirable activity.
This type of instantaneous feedback can help a patient gain increased control over their brain activity, which can contribute to changes in brain functioning and, in turn, their behavior.
Some of the signs of ADHD include:
1. Sustained Focus and attention issues
2. Excessive/constant hyperactivity
3. Lack of impulse control
How neurofeedback supports ADHD treatment
If you or a loved one is struggling to manage any of the above-mentioned symptoms, neurofeedback can help you manage them in a variety of ways.
Identify neurological patterns with a Brain Map
This non-invasive scan of your brainwaves can help precisely identify the issues going on inside the brain.
Upon analysis of your brain map, a clinician can determine the root of the problem and create an appropriate treatment plan based on their findings. Even if findings are not consistent with ADHD neurological patterns, treatment can still help increase your ability to focus, or your child’s ability to focus.
Treatment plans usually involve neurofeedback sessions to help restore healthy brain function and normalize ADHD related behaviors. The process is safe and has over 50 years of research studies.
The number of sessions you or your child will need depends on the severity of symptoms. Once the treatments are complete, the end goal is increased self-regulation in the brain and an overall reduction in ADHD symptoms.
