BrainCore Therapy provides a unique drugless approach
to treating Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (NDS) that may be
associated with the symptoms of many neurological based conditions including ADD/ADHD, Headaches, Migraines, Learning Disorders,
Memory Loss Associated with Aging, Overeating or Binge Eating, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Panic/Anxiety Disorders,
and Insomnia, just to name a few. NDS is a condition that results from tension on the nervous system caused by subluxation,
poor nutrition, stress, drugs or trauma. The BrainCore technology and science is based on a training procedure that effectively
regulates the nervous system providing proven relief of conditions associated with NSD.
In order to understand how BrainCore therapy works
we first need to understand how the brain works.The systems
that govern the human brain are the most complex and compact on earth. In order for the brain to function optimally,
the parts of the brain must talk to one another constantly. The brain accomplishes this communication by transmitting
electrical signals along neurons that connect one area of the brain to another. The electrical signals are expressed
as brain waves. Using non-invasive surface electrodes that are placed on the surface of the scalp, the BrainCore system is
able to translate these brainwaves on to a computer screen for observation – It’s like having a window to the
Brain Waves There are four distinct brain wave frequencies:
Produced when you are awake and engaged in active thought
Produced mostly when you close your eyes and relax.
Produced when you start to fall asleep.
Produced when you are sleeping
Over thirty years of research has demonstrated that, for any given circumstance
there is an accepted normal pattern of brain wave activity. This healthy pattern is referred to as Neurological Regulation. A healthy, balanced, and properly regulated nervous system will produce
the appropriate brain waves at the appropriate levels and at the appropriate times for any given situation. For example,
it is appropriate for the brain to produce Beta waves when it is focused on a task however in some individuals, focusing on
a task results in the production of Theta instead of Beta. Outwardly this particular patient would demonstrate symptoms
of inattention and hyperactivity - much like we see in some cases of ADD/ADHD. This reversal is just one example of
Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome. Some of the conditions
that may be the result of NDS include: ADD / ADHD, Headaches/Migraines, Learning Disorders, Memory Loss, Overeating / Binge
Eating, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Anxiety Disorders, Insomnia, Age Related Cognitive Disorders
BrainCore & Brain Wave Regulation BrainCore Therapy is a form of neurofeedback
that allows the nervous system to retrain itself to create new, more appropriate wave patterns and break the cycle of NDS.
Though the BrainCore technology is quite complex, the training activity is simple, painless, drugless and non-invasive.
Surface electrodes are placed on the scalp and EEG activity is transmitted to the computer screen. Visual feedback of
the patient’s brainwaves in the form of an animated game such as Pac Man, or a movie is provided instantly. The animated
game or a movie only plays when the patient is producing the correct brainwave. If the patient’s brain stops producing
the desired brain wave the game or the movie, stop playing. As the nervous system reorganizes itself based on this instantaneous
information, the patterns begin to normalize. Over the course of 10 to 20 training sessions, the brain modifies itself
to begin producing the appropriate brain waves at the appropriate times resulting in an alleviation of the symptoms.
What Is BrainCore Therapy?Dr. Stiso, a BrainCore Clinician located in Manasquan NJ, explains
BrainCore Therapy is a form of EEG Biofeedback (AKA: Neurofeedback). It is a drugless approach to treating Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (NDS)
that may be associated with the symptoms of many neurological based conditions such as ADHD, Asperger’s, Tics and even
“I was immediately fascinated by BrainCore Therapy ever since attending a symposium in Hilton Head, SC,”
explains Dr. Stiso.“The science has been around for forty years, but until
recently, it has only been available in large University laboratories. So far the results have been amazing! Coming from an
entire family of chiropractic physicians our offices have seen thousands of patients.And over the years there have been many new technologies and therapies to come along, but nothing compares to this.”
By using a computerized electroencephalogram (EEG), electrical impulses
known as brainwaves can be tracked and analyzed while the patient performs several different tasks such as reading or watching
TV.Ideally, the brain should switch between different brainwaves frequencies.However if the brain cannot produce the needed brainwave it will use an alternate,
less efficient wave to get the job done.It is like taking the long country road
to get to the store instead of the highway. Effective, but not efficient. Over time this inefficient wave becomes dominant
causing changes in outward behavior.
ADD/ADHD:When you perform a task, like making breakfast,
your brain should produce a fast brainwave (Beta wave) to keep you focused and allow for quick neurologic communication within
the brain.However, in an ADD/ADHD child, slow brainwaves (Theta waves) are used
when performing a task.Drugs like Ridalin and Aderol artificially elevate Beta
waves for a short period of time. However these drugs are derived from Cocaine and, over time, can have serious adverse effects.
How Does It Work? During a typical training session sensors
are placed on the scalp and brainwave activity is monitored by a BrainCore computer.Next, a DVD will begin playing on the computer screen.The child is told
to concentrate on the movie.If the correct brainwaves are produced the movie
will play; if the mind starts to wander, the movie will pause.This protocol
is repeated with video games, music, jigsaw puzzles and tactile stimulation (vibrating lounge chair). As the brain learns
it becomes stronger and more efficient. This is called neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to adapt and open new neural pathways
allowing for more efficient lines of communication. Similar to riding a bike, once the changes take place, the effects are
