What Clients, Parents and Teachers are Saying about Neurofeedback

Posted by mrneuro on February 20, 2009

“Five months ago I started having panic attacks at work and at home.  I felt extremely anxious in public places, and this anxiety increased to the point where I couldn’t go to my college classes, my job, or even make a trip to the grocery store.  Also, I felt that my mind was unable to rest.  I was only able to sleep about three hours every night, and even after those three hours I did not feel rested.  I was a prisoner of my anxiety. I found Neurofeedback.

After the first week of Neurofeedback, I was sleeping again for eight hours a night.  Being able to sleep at last was so wonderful.  Now that I am more than halfway through my sessions, I feel like I am in control of my life, even more in control than I EVER have been.  I go shopping again, and I’m working hard at my job.  I’ll be attending classes at the University again in a few months.

I would recommend Neurofeedback because it isn’t a medication with weird side effects, and it is so easy.  I can’t believe how much it has helped because it is so easy.  All I do is go in twice a week and watch a game for 30 minutes.  That’s all. I am so thankful to be in control of my life no, and I just want everyone else to feel the same control over their lives.”
- 25 year old woman diagnosed with Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia

 “My headaches have all but disappeared”
- Adult woman who had suffered from severe Migraine Headaches

 “Biofeedback has helped me… to more readily stay focused on the task at hand.  I used to wake up on and off every night, now I usually sleep all night.”
- 16 year old male diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

 “His teacher and I have seen a marked improvement in his school work; more focused on the work itself, done in a shorter time, less distraction from things going on around him in the classroom, and more satisfaction with getting it done.”
- Mother of a 12 year old male diagnosed with Depression and ADHD

 “[My son] is calmer…he’s not as quick to lose his temper.  He’s getting along better with his friends.  He’s more verbal, even his friend’s parents have noticed.  I’ve noticed his concentration has improved.  Before biofeedback, he would sit an hour to three hours at times doing his homework.  Now I don’t have to sit down with him at all.”
- Mother of a 10 year old boy diagnosed with ADHD

 “He has shown marked improvement over the last 4 to 6 weeks.  He willingly responds in class and his answers are appropriate, coherent, and usually correct.  He seems more ‘with it’.  He stays on task with determination until he completes it or takes the necessary steps to see that he can complete it at a later time.”
- Teacher of a 5th grade student diagnosed with ADHD

 “When I began teaching [this student], he was hard to manage…because he couldn’t focus on the task at hand…I can’t believe that vast improvement I’ve seen in him in such a short amount of time.  It’s like night and day.  Before he would get low test scores, now it’s common for him to score 100 percent on his tests.  One thing that really surprises me is to witness how his self esteem has improved.  The positive changes have taken place since he has been involved in your program and I attribute them to you.  So, as a teacher, thank you for the great job you’ve done.”
- Teacher of a 2nd grader

What Professionals Are Saying about Neurofeedback

Posted by mrneuro on February 20, 2009

“Among the newer approaches to managing ADD, the most exciting is a learning process called neurofeedback. It empowers a person to shift the way he pays attention. After more than twenty-five years of research in university labs, neurofeedback has become more widely available. This is a pleasing development, because neurofeedback has no negative side effects.”  
-William Sears, M.D. The A.D.D. Book

“In my 38 years of practice, I have never seen any treatment that comes close to producing the results that Neurofeedback offers . . . I have seen results achieved in days and weeks that previously took months and years to achieve, using the best methods available to us.” 
-Jack Woodward, M.D, Board Certified Psychiatrist

“In my own practice, I’ve used neurofeedback in a comprehensive medical treatment program to help more than 1,000 patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. When combined with supportive therapies such as family counseling and educational therapy, EEG neurofeedback is the most effective treatment available. Critics of EEG neurofeedback hold this treatment to more rigid standards than drug treatments. Yet unlike drugs, neurofeedback is benign.”
- David F. Velkoff, M.D .Medical Director Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine

 “In my experience with EEG Biofeedback and ADD, many people are able to improve their reading skills and decrease their need for medication. Also, EEG biofeedback has helped to decrease impulsivity and aggressiveness. It is a powerful tool, in part because the patient becomes part of the treatment process by taking more control over his own physiological processes.” (pp. 143-144)
- Daniel Amen, M.D. Change Your Brain Change Your Life

 “It improves seizures, depression, low self esteem or congenital head injuries, and it helps the ‘craziness’ that often comes with these . . . Patients report they sleep better, feel better, they don’t have seizures, they are more in control, and that they get more work done. It helps with closed head injury patients. It helps with chronic neurologic disease, where there is no active injury but there are problems with normal functioning. We’ve had success with multiple sclerosis, with toxic encephalopathy (for example, chemical poisoning interfering with neurologic functioning), with chronic pain, migraines and fibromyalgia. And of course, we get very good results with ADD.”
- Jonathan Walker, M.D., Neurologist, Dallas, TX

“Used selectively for patients, it is a very good tool. For psychiatry, this is an area to look into. Not everyone gets better with Prozac, or other drugs. This is a biological intervention that gets the brain firing. I’ve only used Neurofeedback on a limited basis so far, I’ve gotten good results in my private practice with depression. I’ve also gotten good results with some children we have used it for. I would like to do more with it.                                                                                 
- Terry Cook, Psychiatrist, New South Wales, Australia

 “This is one of the broad reach of tools available, and it’s a good tool. Like any tool, it doesn’t work for everyone, but it does benefit most people. It accelerates symptom removal and the development of healthy self-regulation – meaning it helps the patient’s own body make the proper adjustments. “
- Dr. Thomas Brod, Psychiatrist, Los Angeles, CA
