“Demanding immediate results is an aspect of unsteadiness of mind or laziness.”
-Matthieu Ricard, The Art of Meditation
The weight loss industry is rife with gimmicks and scams, and you may have tried everything under the sun and you are STILL dangerously high in body fat. Why? 2/3 of all Americans have an unhealthy body fat percentage and are classified as overweight. 1/3 of all Americans are obese, which is defined as a Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 30. This includes 1 in 6 children being clinically obese. This is a serious health crisis. The current estimate is that by 2020, over 50% of all Americans will be obese and diabetic. What is going on? Why has it become so hard for people to stay lean and healthy?
Brain Influence on Weight
Weight loss is influenced by neurotransmitters. A balanced brain leads to an inner sense of calm and peace. It is considerably easier to recognize cravings for what they really are and to make healthier choices once you are able to control your own internal state with your consciousness rather than with caffeine or sugar laden foods to compensate.
Not producing enough theta wave GABA, for instance, can lead to anxiety, irritability, headaches, and low sex drive. How can you substitute another chemical way to get that calm feeling: Krispy Kreme anyone? Not enough acetylcholine from decreased alpha waves can cause anxiety, stress, migraines, chronic pain and more. Never getting into deep delta sleep reduces human growth hormone and serotonin. Human growth hormone repairs all damage from tissue injury and reduces pain. Serotonin is important in lowering your perception of pain. Can you quickly see how an imbalance in your neurotransmitters can help create strong cravings for unhealthy foods at unhealthy times? Your body is trying to balance itself. Let us help it regulate and balance itself so it no longer needs to do that with food.
One Size Does NOT Fit All
With a QEEG evaluation, we can record and amplify these waves and detect any dysregulation. As neurofeedback addresses neurological dysregulation, it balances your brainwaves and the levels of the neurotransmitters associated with those brainwaves as well. We will also address any needed lifestyle and dietary changes needed to balance neurotransmitters for life. Neurofeedback, Nutrient Therapy, or True Cellular Detox may be the answer you haven’t tried yet.
