Autoimmune Disorder: Treatment Options
Neurofeedback is a safe and effective treatment to greatly reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with some Autoimmune Disorders and many other disorders. Clients typically respond to neurofeedback rapidly, with significant results noted within a few months of starting treatment.
Traditional Treatment Options:
There are a myriad of medications available as treatment options for Autoimmune Disorder , many of which have numerous side effects. Your physician would be the resource for more information about this option. Medication treats the symptoms, but does not address the true cause of the disorder. Effects are typically short-term; thus, this type of treatment is often on-going, with mixed results. Many of our clients are looking for a treatment plan without medication. We will work with your doctor in reducing or eliminating medications.
Many health experts agree that improved nutrition often plays at least a limited role in relieving some symptoms in many disorders, including Autoimmune Disorder, and should be included in treatment options for most people. Dallas Brain Changers can assist you in finding healthier nutritional choices and/or can guide you to an appropriate nutritional professional.
When performed alone or practiced in conjunction with medication intervention, counseling and psychotherapy are popular and well-known treatment options for a variety of disorders, including Autoimmune Disorder. However, this form of intervention may become a long-term and expensive endeavor, often spanning many years, with widely varying results.
Dallas Brain Changers Treatment Option:
When an integrated approach is utilized, involving both counseling and neurofeedback, results are achieved exponentially, often within a few months, and are proven to be more effective and long-lasting.
Autoimmune Disorder: Click here for Case Study
*Neurofeedback is an effective, non-drug, non-invasive treatment option that has been proven to permanently reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with many disorders, including some Autoimmune Disorders. It is a technique of operant conditioning which directly changes brain function. Neurofeedback dramatically affects arousal regulation. In so doing, this ‘brain training’ can normalize the propensity to high or low arousal as seen in the qEEG or Brain Map of those with some Autoimmune Disorders. Furthermore, neurofeedback directly acts on specific brain activity known to be altered in some Autoimmune Disorders. Neurofeedback is an option for those seeking treatment without medication.
Although there is nothing to suggest in any sense Neurofeedback reverses the course of the disease process, there is empirical evidence that Neurofeeback can assist in alleviating some symptoms of several Autoimmune Disorders. In the case of Diabetes, neurofeeback can create a higher tolerance to variations in glucose levels. Clients report feeling more robust and energetic and able to tolerate the pain of peripheral neuropathy more effectively and comfortably. Sleep and the ability to focus is improved in these clients.
For those with Rheumatoid Arthritis, the pain thresholds are affected and improved through neurofeedback thus allowing the client to possibly reduce or eliminate pain medications. And in many Lupus clients, the severity of the flare-ups is reduced.
*Interested clients are advised to make an informed choice regarding Neurofeedback therapists, since there are several treatment options available. It is advised to look for a provider who is board certified by BCIA and a member of AAPB.
