From the moment I started practicing medicine, I was fascinated that the mind and the body are part of a cohesive system. My mission is to bring balance to this system because I believe that this is the key to alleviating a wide range of physical and psychological ailments. The seeds for this perspective were planted at an early age and has guided my approach ever since. Later, we will explore how BrainCore therapy in West Palm Beach could be the hidden solution to many issues that often go overlooked.
Resonance and the Universe that is Your Body
When I was thirteen, one of the only things that I learned from six months of guitar lessons (besides the fact that I had no musical talent) was the lesson of resonance.
My instructor showed me a really cool trick. He took a tuning fork, which was specific to a musical note and he struck it so that it vibrated. Then he held the tuning fork on top of a piano. Only the piano strings which were of the same note as the tuning fork began to vibrate along. The notes that were different did not respond at all, neither did one of the proper strings, which was not tuned properly.
I was awestruck.
How did that happen? It turns out that everything in the universe is vibrating all the time, even us, all the way down to the atomic level. The phenomenon that happened with the piano occurred because the tuning fork sent out a specific wavelength and the piano strings with the exact same wavelength responded.
Did you know that the same thing is happening inside your body right now?
Our brains are sending out millions of specific electrical vibratory signals. And our body should be receiving these signals perfectly and sending the appropriate response in this endless loop during our lifetimes.
Each of the organs in our bodies should be getting the correct frequency like the radio tuner in our cars. But what if the frequency of your nervous system (your tuning fork) were off just a little? What if the wavelengths of life were shortened, stretched, or interrupted? Would the strings of your piano (your body) respond appropriately, or would it be off just enough to cause a problem?
Our brains and bodies have to work together to keep us at our optimal health. When they are out of sync, dysfunction soon follows. You might not feel this disfunction right away, but much like the resonance of a musical note, the vibration of this dissonance comes in waves of sickness and symptoms of that sickness.
So, what if our minds and body are out of tune? Is there a way to restore harmony and balance to this delicate system?
Harmonizing with Neurofeedback Therapy
What is Neurofeedback Therapy?
Neurofeedback therapy is a cutting-edge treatment developed to enhance brain function. Using state-of-the-art brain tracking technology combined with a series of learning modalities that resemble video games, we can help change the way your brain reacts to certain stimuli.
How Does Neurofeedback Therapy Work?
This is a non-intrusive therapy that requires observing your brain patterns and rewarding reactions you’d like to see and withholding reward from those which you want to diminish. Furthermore, this is done by adjusting sensors to your head which capture your brain signals. During your therapy, we keep track of how your brain reacts and can make adjustments accordingly.
From your perspective, this will resemble a game. You will be presented with a series of visual or auditory stimuli. If your brain reacts the way we want, then you’ll receive a reward in the form of a visual or audio cue. If your brain exhibits the pattern we are trying to discourage, you will not receive a reward. This essentially trains the brain to behave in a more balanced and healthy way.
How Can Neurofeedback Therapy Help Me?
By training your brain to behave in a more balanced and positive way, you can curve many negative habits. This treatment has been proven to be effective in changing certain behaviors, reducing stress and anxiety, and even improving sleep patterns. There is also a lot of ongoing research into the effects of neurofeedback therapy on cognitive conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder showing promising results that suggest a level of effectiveness that resembles that of medication.
