PTSD

Neurotherapy solution for PTSD

PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is experienced by 60% of men and 50% of women in U.S.

Symptoms include:

  • Flashbacks

  • Nightmares

  • Insomnia

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Jumpiness

  • Emotional Numbness

  • Addiction/Substance Abuse

  • Avoidance & Withdrawal

PTSD can develop from direct or indirect exposure to any of the following traumatic events:  sexual assault, sexual or physical abuse/assault, accidents, combat, disaster, death of a loved one, witness to injury or death or perceived threat to safety/life, and traumatic brain injury.

qEEG Neurotherapy is an FDA proven way to help you improve your brain function through intensive brain training exercises. Although the technology is quite sophisticated, the process is simple, painless, and non-invasive. You learn to alter your brain activity the same way you learn every other skill – through feedback and practice. (practice makes perfect)

What is new in qEEG Neurotherapy is that you are guided by a form of feedback that was previously not available. Every half second, your brain activity is compared to your targets for change. You get a signal and “reward” when you meet the goal. No signal or reward when you do not meet the goal.

 

In 20 qEEG Neurotherapy sessions, with feedback every half second, you get 72,000 chances to learn. That’s a lot of repetition and practice. Brain science has shown that repetitive exercise of brain networks reshapes the brain. qEEG Neurotherapy allows you to reshape your brain.

The limits of traditional treatment

The majority of PTSD patients continue to have substantial symptoms after treatment ends.

 

Less than half of those entering psychotherapy improved significantly.

 

Treatments for combat-related trauma showed the lowest level of benefit.

 

Even the most effective available treatments do not result in full recovery for the majority of veterans with PTSD.

 

In published research and our experience, qEEG Neurotherapy is consistently helpful in reducing or eliminating the symptoms of PTSD.

Our promise to you

We measure treatment outcomes with every qEEG Neurotherapy patient. We will measure yours.

We will use well-established psychological tests to measure your symptoms before and after twenty qEEG Neurotherapy sessions.

You will see your progress, in black and white.

Our treatment outcome data show that 70% - 80% of qEEG Neurotherapy patients show significant improvement after their first twenty sessions.

We make this promise in writing, with every qEEG Neurotherapy patient:

You will see significant improvement, as measured by accepted psychological/qEEG tests.

 

If you don't, we will continue to provide treatment, without charge, for another twenty sessions.

Free qEEG Neurotherapy for uninsured veterans with PTSD

Are you among the many veterans who returned suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or traumatic brain injury? Have you tried conventional treatment but still experience symptoms?

Unfortunately, you are not alone. Standard treatment approaches for both disorders can be helpful.

But many if not most PTSD patients continue to suffer symptoms, even after the best treatment. We will help you.

For uninsured veterans, we are proud to offer free of charge our initial assessment for qEEG Neurotherapy, a full qEEG mapping.

Our early treatment outcome results indicate that qEEG Neurotherapy is often very helpful with the symptoms of PTSD. Research also shows effectiveness for symptoms of traumatic brain injury.

Who we are?

White Ink™ is specialized in the most advanced FDA approved BCI tools and software to utilize the technology of future today, in order to design a customized, life-changing treatment protocols for various brain related conditions.

The Dry Sensor Interface (DSI) headsets integrate revolutionary dry electrode technology that acquires clean EEG signals, without the need for skin preparation.

They are faster and more accurate than wet caps, and can identify and target specific Brodmann areas responsible for all brain functions. Revolutionizing neurofeedback, this qEEG brain-computer interface provides powerful results, regulating poorly functioning areas of the brain.

What are the Brainwaves?

mozdani-talasi2-011.jpg

At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviors is the communication between neurons within our brains. Brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.

Brainwaves are detected using sensors placed on the scalp. They are divided into bandwidths to describe their functions, but are best thought of as a continuous spectrum of consciousness; from slow, loud and functional - to fast, subtle, and complex.

 

It is a handy analogy to think of brainwaves as musical notes - the low frequency waves are like a deeply penetrating drum beat, while the higher frequency brainwaves are more like a subtle high pitched flute. Like a symphony, the higher and lower frequencies link and cohere with each other through harmonics. 

 

Our brainwaves change according to what we’re doing and feeling. When slower brain waves are dominant we can feel tired, slow, sluggish, or dreamy. The higher frequencies are dominant when we feel wired, or hyper-alert.

Altering our Brainwaves

As rule of thumb, any process that changes our perception, changes our brainwaves.

 

Traditional Eastern methods, (such as meditation and yoga) train our brainwaves into balance temporarily. Of the newer methods, computer game type brainwave entrainment is a method to temporarily alter our brainwave status. If we are trying to solve a particular difficulty or fine-tune our brainwave function long term, state-of-the-art qEEG Neurotherapy delivers targeted, quick, and long lasting results.     

But why is it possible to train and change our brainwaves? The answer is a phenomenon called Neuroplasticity.

What Is Neuroplasticity?

9-neuroplasticity.jpg

Our brains are constantly being shaped by experience. Most of us have very different behaviors and thoughts today than we did 20 years ago. This shift is neuroplasticity in action; changes in brain structure and organization as we experience, learn, and adapt.

 

With every repetition of a thought or emotion, we reinforce a neural pathway - and with each new thought, we begin to create a new way of being. These small changes, frequently enough repeated, lead to changes in how our brains work. 

 

Neuroplasticity is the 'muscle building' part of the brain; the things we do often we become stronger at, and what we don’t use fades away. That is the physical basis of why making a thought or action over and over again increases its power.

Over time, it becomes automatic; a part of us. We literally become what we think and do.

 

Neuroplasticity is at work throughout life. Connections within the brain are constantly becoming stronger or weaker, depending on what is being used. Younger people change easily; their brains are very plastic. As we age change doesn't come as easily; the brain loses some of its plasticity and we become more fixed in how we think, learn, and perceive. 

 

Since the brain is pivotal to all we think and do, by harnessing neuroplasticity we can improve everything we do and think. qEEG Neurotherapy works with these fundamental principles of neuroplasticity to help us take control of our mind. 

What Is qEEG Neurotherapy?

Since we've already learned about the roll Brainwaves play in our life and how neuroplasticity works, we are able to explain why qEEG Neurotherapy is able to reverse brain conditions and mental disorder symptoms.

 

Using sensors on the scalp, we can measure and monitor brainwave activities. With brain analysis software (QEEG brain map), we can identify what specific activity is giving rise to our symptoms. By the way, qEEG stands for, Quantitative, Electroencephalography.

Once we know the areas of concern, we can create a training plan to help draw our brain into a comfortable, efficient status. That brings us to qEEG Neurotherapy.

During a qEEG Neurotherapy session, we compare what our brain is actually doing to what we'd like it to be doing. When our brain is nearing a more comfortable state, we are rewarded with a positive response on a computer screen.

Usually this ‘neurofeedback’ is in the form of a video game, music, or movie. 

 

The sounds and images tell us immediately when our brain approaches a more efficient place and when not. When the movie plays, it is because our brain is approaching the desired state. When the movie stops, it is because our brain is heading the other way. 

 

Much like physical exercises develop specific muscles, the more our brain is exercised into reaching a more comfortable, more efficient position, the better it gets at it.

 Why? Correct! Because of the Neuroplasticity. As with learning any new skill, it simply requires time and repetition.
