Micro Current Neurofeedback
IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback
IASIS MCN does not train the brain like traditional neurofeedback, rather it “un-trains” the brain and CNS (central nervous system) by allowing it to reorganize itself and shift from its formerly fixed patterns. This is analogous to re-booting a computer.
Our experience with MCN is significant: over 85% of clients begin to observe a noticeable positive response in 1-3 sessions. For example, more than 85% of mild/moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) report noticing a reduction in head pain, brain fog, impulsivity and and better sleep during the first few sessions. The same is also true for anxiety and PTSD. Reported changes are generally enduring and sustainable.
Some clients even notice helpful changes during the initial session. Early changes may be temporary, and due to the cumulative nature of IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback, are observed to last longer with each training. By the end of a series of training sessions improvements may be substantial. While some patients require “tune-ups,” for the most part the benefits endure. This is the result of the brain regaining healthier neuro-chemical balance, and developing more neuro-plasticity and a natural resistance to returning to a dysfunctional state. The number of sessions depend on the individual, their condition and acuity.
Reported benefits associated with sessions of IASIS MCN have included:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Post Concussion Syndrome
Causes of chronic fight-or-flight mode
It’s not just daily stress that can keep a person stuck in sympathetic mode. It could be stress from the past that has been hardwired into your brain, a concept referred to as negative plasticity. The neuron pathways in your brain have become highly efficient at stress so it takes less and less to trigger a stress response.
The most common example of this is post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. It can also come from long periods of overwork and sleep deprivation that have essentially trained your brain to be agitated all the time, even though your health is being sacrificed.
Signs of chronic sympathetic stress
Signs you are stuck in sympathetic mode include problems with sleep, anxiety, blood sugar issues (even with a blood-sugar-balancing diet), sexual dysfunction, brain fog, memory issues, fatigue, difficulty recovering from exercise or stressful events, getting sick easily, and chronic pain.
Chronic sympathetic stress not only creates negative plasticity, it also damages the gut lining, leading to intestinal permeability, or leaky gut. This allows undigested foods, bacteria, yeast, and other pathogens into the bloodstream, where they trigger inflammation. This chronic inflammation is the foundation to many health maladies.
