What if you had the opportunity to retrain your brain?  A kind, gentle retraining.  Not the usual guilt, regret, control, and frustration that many of us get caught up in when negative thought patterns rule our lives.

If you have anxiety, depression, or ADHD, neurofeedback offers a chance to help find healing.  This therapy at Wholeness Center can be very beneficial for patients who haven’t been able to find relief from symptoms through other methods.

We’ve also found that patients with anger and emotional issues (outbursts, sudden mood changes, emotion regulation problems) often get results from neurofeedback training.  In fact, we’ve been able to help many children and adolescents with this therapy.

Neurofeedback / EEG Biofeedback can also help if you are experiencing symptoms related to:

Addictions

Anxiety

Stress

Sleep Disorders

Autism

Stroke

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Mood / Emotion Regulation

Seizure Disorder

Headaches / Migraines

Anger / Outbursts

You are in control of your neurofeedback training.  It’s true!  You are training your own brain to function optimally for you based on your needs.  Whether it’s healing from a traumatic brain injury or getting out of the spirals that depression can cause, each neurofeedback session supports and leads you into training your brain.

Most patients notice improvements after only 5 sessions.  After months, years, or even decades of covering up symptoms … think of it … only 5 sessions and you may find yourself on the road to healing and gaining a quality of life that you never may have thought possible.

During your neurofeedback training, we will look at how your different brain wave patterns are distributed.  We’ll then analyze the patterns to see which of them connect to the symptoms you are interested in alleviating.  At that point, we’ll come up with a custom treatment plan and help guide you as you begin to retrain your brain with our doctor’s support.

The Wholeness Center provides therapy and treatment plans for patients with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) .  We offer these alternative, holistic options for children, teens, and adults.  Contact us today for your free consultation at 970-221-1106.

Our team at the Wholeness Center firmly believes that our  mental health (children and adults) goes far beyond labels and medications.  A diagnosis and a prescription is the quick cover up for the complicated symptoms presented by ADHD.  We’re not interested in quick cover ups.  We’re here to treat the whole person, the whole child, with options that look deeply into the root cause of behaviors and symptoms.

ADHD, Depression, and Anxiety is on the rise, why?
Children, teens, and adults can’t focus.  Many of us, our neighbors, our community members, are depressed.  Teenagers are facing chronic anxiety.  Are generations being born with brain chemistry problems?  Is ADHD the new normal?

We’ve read statistics that are stating 1 in 10 children in the U.S. has ADHD.  In fact, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is showing a 67% increase from 1997 to 2016.  It’s been a slow progression and is causing a lot of concern.  Is the rise due to more awareness?  More health care access?  Better screenings for children?  Possibly.

Maybe it’s just a quick and convenient diagnosis for a variety of symptoms including depression or anxiety.  Many pediatricians and general practitioners are offering up this diagnosis after only a 10 to 15 minute evaluation with their patient.  Our Wholeness Center team agrees with other psychiatry professionals that observations and assessments take time and are difficult.  So, there’s a strong possibility that ADHD is being over diagnosed and patients are being overmedicated.

What is ADHD?
ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, has become one of the common mental health conditions for children over the past two decades.  ADHD shows itself differently for each person.  Generally, it’s thought to appear as hyperactivity.  Other symptoms are:

  • Difficultly with details
  • Making repetitive mistakes
  • Not following through with instructions
  • Difficulty organizing
  • Easily distracted
  • Forgetful
  • Fidgeting or tapping
  • Difficulty staying seated
  • Restless
  • Unable to enjoy relaxing leisure activities
  • Excessive talking
  • Answering questions before they are completed
  • Often interrupts

 

It’s important to note that the above symptoms would need to be chronic and seen often in a variety of settings to be considered ADHD.  It’s also important to note that depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and learning disabilities can have crossover symptoms with ADHD.  It’s easy to misdiagnose.

It is believed that ADHD is caused by both genetic and environmental factors.  However, ADHD research is ongoing and the cause is not known.

Do you offer alternatives to Adderall, antidepressants, and stimulants for ADHD treatment?

Yes and no.  Naturopathic medicine isn’t about replacing prescription medications with herbal supplements, it’s about understanding and healing.  Our alternative, holistic treatments for ADHD are fined tuned to each individual and are focused on long-term quality of life benefits.  Dr. Scott Shannon explains:

ADHD – Wholeness Center Spotlight from Wholeness Center on Vimeo.

ADHD, depression, and anxiety are symptoms.  They are extremely important indicators that our bodies, minds, and spirits  are in need of support.  Think of symptoms and diagnosis as a yellow flashing light, not a permanent state of being.

New, cutting edge sciences are showing us how amazing our bodies and minds are at healing.  Neuroplasticity and epigenetics are changing the way we approach health care and taking away our false sense of limitation.

Are frustrated with a diagnosis for you or your kids and you are weighing out your options?  Are you concerned with the side effects of a prescription you’ve been given or are you wondering about an ADHD misdiagnosis?  Give us a call or schedule your free consultation onlineOur bodies are built to heal and our Wholeness Center was created to support your healing process.
