The Treatment of Insomnia with Neurofeedback

Insomnia- An Epidemic in the Modern World

In the modern world, there are all manner of influences that might be disruptive to a normal sleep cycle. We over consume stimulants like caffeine and sugar. Our biological system is constantly under assault from electromagnetic frequencies from wifi networks and cell phone radiation. We are exposed to pollution to varying degrees. The stress level in general is high.

As a result, many of us fail to get adequate sleep at night. Insomnia has currently reached epidemic status in the developed world. Recent estimates of the prevalence of insomnia according to data analysis studies show us that almost 1/3 of the US population suffers from some form of sleep disturbance.

Modern medicine falls short of adequately helping insomniacs. All it can offer is sedatives or hypnotics, two classes of drugs that can create as many problems as they seek to alleviate. This is where alternative medicine can step in to take up the slack.

Can Neurofeedback be an Effective Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s Disease- An Overview

Parkinson’s disease affects the way a person moves. It is caused by a breakdown in the brain’s nerve cells that make a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) called dopamine. Dopamine signals the part of the brain controlling movement, which lets your muscles move smoothly and in unison.

Parkinson's diseaseCommon symptoms include tremor (shaking) affecting the extremities, stiff muscles, slower movement, and problems with balance. In the later stages of the disease, the patient may develop a blank expression, problems with speech, and a decline in mental acuity.

About one million Americans live with Parkinson’s disease (PD), which is more than the combined number of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig’s disease (or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis).
