EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a therapeutic modality that can speed the healing process from emotional trauma. Please see the video, "In The Blink of an Eye" to know how EMDR and the LENS are such a perfect marriage. EMDR coupled with the LENS is like a 1-2 punch for trauma. Check it out.

The following conditions can affect how well the LENS works for you and if any are present you will be referred to the appropriate practitioner. Once corrected it will help speed the healing process:
Dysbiosis: this is all about gut flora (bacteria). Is yours healthy?
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Increased viral load in Hep C or HIV infection
Lyme disease and other tick born illnesses
Constant exposure to mold
Heavy metal exposure
The informal migraine case study at Seacoast Neurofeedback LLC, has been extended. The original dates for the 10 week study were April 14th, to June 23rd. One subject needed to suspend treatment due to life circumstances but is now ready to proceed. This period will likely be completed sometime in mid November and data compilation will be complete after the first of the year.
Leaky Gut Syndrome or intestinal hyper permeability is a condition that's more common than previously thought so if you have any of the following you may want to consider leaky gut as a possibility:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); functional GI diseases
Inflammatory bowel disease, Celiac disease
Cancer (esophagus, colorectal)
Infections (e.g. respiratory)
Acute inflammation (sepsis, SIRS, MOF)
Chronic inflammation (e.g. arthritis)
Metabolic diseases such as type I and possibly type II diabetes
This problem is so pervasive that it should be addressed as a consideration in everyone, especially in that it may improve your response to The LENS. Please check out the video from
Dr. Gundry. It's long but it's worth it.
This is an appropriate discussion here because this condition and others can slow progress with the LENS.
Cure is a word often used indiscriminately as though it has more than one meaning. It’s even been used to define the use of vaccination as a cure for such maladies that have plagued mankind for centuries. Some of these are as follows:
There’s a difference between cure and prevention. They don’t mean the same thing and they’re not interchangeable.
Malaria? Hundreds of thousands worldwide continue to die every year from this dreadful disease, mostly in African/Sub-Saharan regions, so we can hardly say it’s been cured. Once a person has malarial infection it’s extremely difficult to treat.
Have these diseases really been cured? The official definition of cure states: To relieve the symptoms of a disease or condition (I challenge this definition). Save bacterial infection, have we really cured anything? The above listed diseases have not been cured. They have been prevented. Cure means that you can treat the people that actually have the disease and rid them of the disease itself, not merely alleviate symptoms. This has rarely happened in Western Medicine, or any medicine for that matter.
If you’re being seen for any condition in which the practitioner uses the word cure, start asking a lot of questions? What does that mean in terms of how they are treating you and possible outcomes? Once you’ve gathered the necessary information you will have what you need to make a decision on how you want to proceed and whom you want to see.
Brain based conditions respond very well to the LENS (low energy neurofeedback), including migraine. I like to hear words and phrases such as Freedom; I just don’t have them anymore; I haven’t had any since…
Hemiplegic migraine, familial (runs in the family) or sporadic (single individual). A frightening experience, the symptoms can mimic a stroke and medical attention should be sought immediately. Extensive diagnostic workup will help determine treatment options. Symptoms are characterized by motor weakness on one side of the body, headache, aura, nausea, light and sound sensitivity.
Neuroplasticity is everything and it could be the key to entrepreneurial success. It could be the key to any success for that matter. The best part is you're never too old. Neuroplasticity and malleability are always within our grasp. So what does that say about the old dog and the new tricks? Everything.
Just completed week 4 of 10 in the informal migraine case study. To date, one subject with complete resolution of headaches after 8 sessions. We worked with her outside the study period due to time constraints so she is ahead of the rest of the group in the study. A second subject with chronic migraine of more than 15 days/ month and multiple triggers, reports she is doing very well and seems to be smiling a lot these days. Two others are reporting a shift in headache patterns. One subject continues with little movement but her reports are promising. One subject has been released from the study due to unreported health issues during the assessment period. That's it so far.
Stay tuned for future updates as the study progresses. Study ends mid July and data should be available by the 1st of August.
When we think of migraine we often associate it with women. 75% of migraineurs are women but it's been estimated that as much as 10% of men are sufferers. The difference is that men are incredibly under-diagnosed. Check out this article about men and migraine.
