Depression is often a misunderstood mental health condition. Yet, over 40 million Americans are struggling with it. Moreover, there are negative stigmas associated. Sufferers are often told they’re lazy or overly emotional. Many people brush off the idea of depression as something to ”just get over”. But depression is a serious condition that requires treatment.
The good news is that awareness around depression and available treatments are on the rise. Braincore neurofeedback is one such revolutionary treatment. It’s a powerful way to overcome this mental disorder, bringing new hope to millions of people across the globe.
Understanding Depression and Neuroplasticity
Negative stigmas aside, you may be depressed and not even know it. This condition affects all aspects of your life, including how you feel, act, and think. Most sufferers experience:
- Feeling sad most of the time
- Losing interest in hobbies
- Loss of appetite or emotional eating
- Oversleeping or restless sleeping
- Feelings of malaise
- Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
- Difficulty thinking and making decisions
- Thoughts of death or suicide
The brain is an incredibly powerful muscle – this is where neuroplasticity comes in. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s mechanism for creating brand new neural pathways. Our brains are far from hard-wired – they have the ability to heal themselves.
Braincore neurofeedback works on the basis of neuroplasticity. Basically, it teaches our brains to react and think differently in order to beat depression.
Braincore Neurofeedback Explained
Braincore neurofeedback is also known as EEG biofeedback. This form of therapy monitors your brain’s electrical activity, such as the brainwaves. It also tracks the reactions of all five forms of brainwaves: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma.
During this process, a therapist regulates your brainwaves by tracking brain activity. He sends this information back to the brain via computer imagery and electrical signals. Sounds like a big ol’ bunch of quack straight out of the ’60’s, doesn’t it? Well, the process does date back to this time period.
Initially, Neurotherapy was used on NASA astronauts to prevent rocket-fuel induced seizures. And yes, they were successful.
Essentially, Braincore neurofeedback is a form of learning for the brain. This organ begins to adjust itself to the positive signals sent by electrical stimuli and imagery. The treatment is not only used to treat depression but a host of other conditions including:
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Learning disabilities
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Traumatic brain injuries and memory loss
The goal of neurofeedback is to improve your brain’s ability to self-regulate without medications.
You can get your life back on track as your brain learns how to maintain its flexibility between states of relaxation and stress.
