Although many medical professionals are unfamiliar with neurofeedback, several thousand RN’s, psychologists, psychiatrists and other physicians, recognize the power of using brain training to help individuals become more stable. Increased stability correlates to decreased seizures. As an alternative to medications, neurofeedback can often help people reduce or eliminate drugs as their brains become more stable. Doctors then are able to help their patients reduce seizure medication after they see their increased stability.
Seizures indicate a brain that has lost its stability. There are 18 excellent studies showing the effectiveness of neurofeedback in reducing seizures, and everyone should be given the chance to try neurofeedback and train their brain.
Dramatic Reduction in Seizures
Virtually no neurologists are familiar with this technology. A key reason is low reimbursement. In the early 1990’s, biofeedback reimbursements were cut by 75% by Medicare and other insurance providers. Most doctors dropped most biofeedback at that time. They’ve never become unaware of the advances in the field since, and the advances are significant.
If you know a seizure patient who is interested in neurofeedback, we strongly suggest learning about the significant amount of research published about how neurofeedback can help seizures. Or, come for a consultation so we can talk about your specific situation and answer questions.
Give people who have seizures the chance to try neurofeedback. If it works, its impact can be life-changing.
