LENS Neurofeedback has been shown to relieve PTSD symptoms. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety as well as uncontrollable repeating thoughts. LENS neurofeedback is an advanced form of EEG biofeedback that provides a low energy micro-pulse to reorganize brain neuro pathways. This information shows the brain how to let go of negative traumatic patterns and rebuild healthy neural networks without medication. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that often leads to isolation, depression and addiction.
The cause may be unknown because symptoms often begin many years after the traumatic events. Any event that caused an adrenalin rush can set up PTSD patterns in the brain. Physical, emotional, and mental events or mild head trauma from sports or fender-benders can be the root cause of PTSD.
Symptoms may not cause enough difficulty in daily life to qualify for a DSM diagnosis however everyone has a slight degree PTSD. This is because of the brain operates with a negative survival bias. Human brains have evolved to stay on high alert to guard against life threating events.
LENS neurofeedback reads brainwaves, and feeds back an outline of this EEG information through the sensor wires to show the brain how to let go of addictive-repetative negative patterns.
Treatments and rebuild healthy neural networks without medication or effort and takes only a fews minute. The result is a relaxed body and calm mind that is organized for better decision making. Within minutes, the brain lets go of reaction patterns triggered by the fight-or-flight sympathetic nervous system and replenished by the paratympanic nervous system.
Passive treatments help manage habitual PTSD symptoms such as anxiety, OCD, constant wariness and negative thoughts, while supporting healthy brain development for clearer thinking and renewed confidence.
