Neurocore uses neurofeedback therapy as a way to treat ADHD without the use of prescription drugs. Neurofeedback therapy involves the use of electrodes attached to a patient that is sitting comfortably in a quiet room. A movie is then played as neuropsychologists monitor the patients brain waves and heart rate. If the patients brainwaves remain calm the movie will continue to play. The movie will pause if unbalanced brainwaves are detected.
It takes around thirty treatments for neurofeedback therapy to have lasting results. More than 70% of patients have reported being less dependent on prescription drugs after treatment. Neurocore uses a variety of techniques to assess a patients brainwaves. Quantitative Electroencephalogram screening uses a cap that is placed on the head of a patient to measure nineteen sites on the brain.
The cap measures speed and connectivity to determine how well the brain is functioning. Neurocore uses Heart Rate Variability to measure heart rate and breathing patterns. People taking drugs for ADHD have reported feeling sluggish, drowsy, and unmotivated. Some people have trouble sleeping at night, and some medicine can stunt a child’s growth. Neurocore’s approach is an effective alternative to ADHD drugs.
