Jessie’s story

Jessie, a 42-year old woman, had been suffering from depression for many years. Her grandmother had depression and her brother had been diagnosed with bipolar disease. Jessie is married and a full-time mom, but had been in marital counseling for some time.

Jessie felt generally unmotivated and apathetic. She had insomnia and didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning. She felt like a victim and would think obsessively about all the things that had gone wrong in her life, both now and in the past. She would get stuck on those thoughts and couldn’t let them go. She felt like she was on an emotional rollercoaster and her memory seemed to fail her more frequently. She would lose things all the time and couldn’t even find her car in parking lots. She had to re-read a paragraph several times before it would sink in. She felt restless and agitated all the time and ruminated over her to-do list constantly. She had frequent uncontrollable episodes of anger and often would blurt out things that she later regretted. She had taken SSRIs on and off in the past. She was then taking a long list of nutraceuticals, but hadn’t seen much improvement.



What we found

After obtaining a detailed history and discussing Jessie’s physiological, cognitive and emotional assessments, we investigated the underlying causes of her symptoms with a qEEG brain map. After collecting her EEG data and analyzing the qEEG report, we found features of underlying depression and emotional instability, as evidenced by her frontal alpha asymmetry and elevated posterior beta. Many of her memory areas were underpowered. Her map also showed that underlying metabolic issues exhausted and bogged down her brain. With an additional nutritional evaluation, we investigated the underlying causes and found that she had thyroid and other hormonal imbalances, adrenal issues and sensitivities to corn and gluten. The nutraceuticals she was taking didn’t address those issues. In addition, emotional trauma from her childhood and head injuries contributed to her condition.



How we treat

We created a custom designed clinical protocol specifically for Jessie. This included 45 sessions of qEEG neurofeedback, brain entrainment and alpha-theta training, twice per week. We recommended supplements for her thyroid, HPA axis and hormonal imbalances. We advised a Paleo style diet and to refrain from eating any foods that contained gluten or corn. Her treatments were monitored and fine tuned with monthly follow-up nutritional appointments. Using a progress tracker customized with her symptoms, we monitored her overall progress. When we compared a post-treatment qEEG brain map with the baseline map, we saw significant positive changes in her brain which correlated with the tremendous improvements that Jessie reported. The rumination had stopped completely, she felt more at peace and had her joy in life back. She looked beautiful!

Susan’s story

 “My life was out of control and I could barely function – even with simple tasks. I was constantly reaching for something to make me feel better – coffee, food, alcohol and pills. After every binge I would promise myself it was the last time, but instead I found myself ‘quitting’ my self-destructive habits every week. My mood swings were becoming noticeable to others. The highs were short-lived and the lows seemed to last forever, leaving me feeling hopeless, depressed and anxious. I had a constant, unexplainable underlying tension, putting me on perpetual edge.


During my first Advanced Neurofeedback session my body felt calm and I was able to release deep unconscious material that had been haunting me for years. As my session progressed, I found myself less reactive, the constant ruminations had finally stopped, and I felt more grounded in my body. This new space allowed me to step away from destructive looping patterns that had once dominated my life and gave me the ability to create a new, happier and healthy way of being.”


Neurofeedback should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy it would be universally accepted and widely used. It is a field to be taken seriously by all.”

- Frank Duffy, MD, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
