Control Your Mind, Control Your Future: With Neuro- feedback

Neurofeedback is not widely known, nor widely recognized by the medical profession, yet this alternative therapy is seemingly working miracles for patients like Shanna Silverberg, a Hartford, Connecticut high school student who saw her debilitating migraines disappear in a matter of weeks, reports Jayne Keedle in the Hartford Advocate.

When no traditional remedies provided relief, Silverberg's therapist suggested she visit Rae Tattenbaum, a practitioner of neurofeedback. A branch of biofeedback, a technique that measures biological responses and then 'feeds back' that information, neurofeedback uses electrodes 'attached to the scalp to measure electrical impulses generated by the brain while a person 'retrains' their brain by playing what looks like a video game.'

These games, writes Keedle, 'encourage people to produce and maintain brainwaves within a certain desired frequency, using visual aids such as colored rocket ships that speed up when the person achieves the right frequency.' By maintaining the right frequency, the game ''retrains' the way the brain functions, stimulating the growth of certain neural pathways to strengthen this area of the mind on a more permanent basis.' -- Leif UtneGo there>>
