Johnny, an 8-year old boy, was always
getting into trouble at school. He was constantly distracted, didn’t pay
attention to what the teacher was saying and disturbed other children.
His tutor said he was defiant, because she had a difficult time getting
him to do what she wanted. He frequently forgot to do his homework,
fidgeted constantly, had nightmares and frequently rocked himself.
What we found
After obtaining a detailed history
from his parents and discussing Johnny’s physiological, cognitive and
emotional assessments, we investigated the underlying causes of Johnny’s
symptoms with a qEEG brain map.
After collecting his EEG data and
analyzing the qEEG report, we found features of a child with ADHD, such
as a high slow to fast wave ratio in the frontal cortex.
His brain map also showed features of
underlying physiological anxiety and inflammation. Inflammation affects
the myelin (the protective coating covering the nerves) which slows down
the brain and creates brain fog.
With an additional nutritional
evaluation, we were able to identify that Johnny had underlying microbial
and fungal infections, and was sensitive to certain foods causing
inflammation in his brain.
How we treat
We created a custom designed clinical
protocol specifically for Johnny. This included 30 sessions of qEEG
neurofeedback and brain entrainment, twice per week. We recommended
supplements and advised an anti-fungal diet, removing all sweets, sugars,
sodas, etc. to address the inflammation.
Using cognitive performance tests and
a personalized progress tracker, we monitored and managed his overall
progress. When we compared a post-treatment qEEG brain map with the
baseline map, we found substantial positive changes in his theta/beta
ratio, anxiety and inflammation. This correlated with great improvements
in his behavior and academic performance as reported by his parents and

daughter has been suffering from ADHD and behavioral issues. Her teachers
complained about her bad behavior at school, inability to pay attention
and disturbing other kids. The school psychologist encouraged us to get
her on medication while the school has been giving her special ed classes. She has been on Ritalin for over 4 years
and we are very concerned about the side effects. Doctors had to keep
increasing her dosage to manage her symptoms.
decided to try neurofeedback. After working with the Jamieson Health
Center, we have seen great improvement in our daughter’s behavior. She is
a much happier, compliant and positive
little girl. A few weeks ago, she received the “Student of the Month”
award at school. All her teachers have noticed the amazing changes in her
behavior and cognitive function. We are so thankful to have found the
Jamieson Health Center.”
going to Jamieson Health Center (JHC), we had previously consulted
another health center but were quickly turned off by their unpromising
treatment plan and lack of genuine concern for our son’s welfare.
Instead, when we chose JHC that’s where we learned about our son’s gluten
sensitivity and metabolic issues. Our 5-year old son had substantial
brain fog which impaired his emotions, and mental and social abilities.
previous place only offered neurofeedback treatments whereas JHC’s
approach is more comprehensive. They evaluate each case and make a
customized treatment plan for each individual. JHC educated us on how
diet can benefit or harm the brain. Based on their recommendations, we
changed our son’s diet to eliminate gluten and some other foods. Along
with his diet change, proper supplements and neurofeedback sessions we
saw tremendous change in a matter of weeks. Before the treatment, our son
was a socially unresponsive child with much learning difficulties. Now
that his brain fog has been removed and his brain is stimulated, our son
is talking a lot more at home and at school. He is also able to manage
his emotions and interact with his classmates much better.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics considers neurofeedback a
"Level 1 - Best Support" Intervention for ADHD.
qEEG guided Neurofeedback is a
promising alternative to drugs without
reported adverse effects. It significantly reduces attentional
problems and hyperactivity by retraining your brain. When done
consistently over a period of time, the healthy brain changes become
permanent and symptoms disappear.
Moreover, Advanced Neurofeedback, which combines
qEEG neurofeedback with brain entrainment and nutritional solutions,
greatly enhances the effectiveness of your brain training, so you’ll need
less sessions to achieve your goals.
