Brain Healing Options

The world of natural, holistic care offers several science-based methods of locating and balancing problems with brain function. Whether or not you have a disease, these methods can contribute to better function, quality of life, and happiness.

The methods we offer are based on either correcting the over- or under-firing patterns of the brain circuit pathways, or balancing the brain chemically. Children, adults, and seniors may all see benefit in performance from these methods. Vaughan Vitality Wellness is one of very few clinics that combine the power of these methods with each other and with chiropractic, acupuncture, and sports or psychological counseling.

QEEG and Neurofeedback


We assess the electrical circuits in the brain using a noninvasive scan technology called QEEG or quantitative electroencephalography. This is a cap that measures brainwaves leaving the skull and captures them in full color 3D brain mapping reports that compare your brain to thousands of subjects.

This same cap can be used to teach the brain through feedback how to fire more efficiently and rest more deeply. This method is called Neurofeedback and has been highly studied. QEEG and Neurofeedback can be applied to patients as young as 6 years old. Our system is the most advanced available today reaching deep brain structures using the s-loreta processing system that guides imaging and treatment.

Functional Neurological Exam and Rehab


1990-2000 was called the Decade of the Brain because the National Institutes of Health funded massive university imaging studies of all types of brain function. These brain scans led to the knowledge of brain regions and their distinct functions. Examination methods became standardized and brain clinicians began to activate distinct brain regions with targeted precision. Today, physical examination and other testing can reveal very specifically where the brain problem is, and then therapies can be directed that stimulate those deficit areas perfectly.

We use a number of directed brain therapies, including specific balance training, eye movements, skin brushing, object or word identification, tilt table training, visual or auditory stimulations, double tasking, laser headset training, neurological muscle energy techniques, and many other fun, interesting, and pain-free exercises.

Metabolic Balancing or Functional Medicine


The brain is bathed in a chemical soup within the cerebrospinal fluid that can either be sustaining or toxic for it. For the chemistry of the brain, urine, and blood, we have lab tests, medical history, physical examinations, and imaging that can help us locate chemical imbalances.

Repairing such imbalances involves:

  • adding or subtracting foods from the diet,
  • adding or changing nutritional supplements or their serving size, and
  • changing exercise, sleep, and other lifestyle habits.

Some Indications for Brain Services


Symptoms and Conditions that may benefit from supportive, adjunctive, or palliative brain therapies include:

  • ADHD
  • Asperger’s
  • Tourette’s
  • TBI Traumatic and mild traumatic brain injury or concussion
  • Multiple concussion or post-concussion syndrome
  • Sleep problems
  • Concentration and focus issues or brain fog
  • Balance problems, falls, and clumsiness
  • Nausea
  • Vertigo
  • Mood disorders such as depression and anxiety
  • Bipolar and schizophrenia
  • Autoimmune diseases affecting the brain, endocrine, or digestive systems
  • Tics and tremors
  • Panic attacks
  • Headaches of several types
  • Behavior control
  • Auditory and sensory processing disorders
  • Reading difficulties and some learning disorders
  • Allodynia (pain from normal touch)
  • TMJ disorders of the jaw
  • Some speech and language disorders
  • Chronic vertebral subluxation (non-ligamentous spinal instability) that remains unresolved despite chiropractic care
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Posture and gait disturbances
  • Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other neurodegenerative disorders of the brain
  • Some vagal nerve conditions

Many conditions require co-management with a psychologist, psychiatrist, dentist, dietician, acupuncturist, naturopath, nutritionist, podiatrist, optometrist, PT, OT speech therapist, medical neurologist, or other health professional.

Nutritional and dietary supplements can make a huge impact too. Quality of life can be greatly improved even in the absence of cure. Advanced brain imaging centers are available to us for special testing and reports as well.

New and Advanced Types of Neurofeedback We Offer


Neurofeedback can be applied to patients as young as 6 years old. Our system is the most advanced available today reaching deep brain structures using the s-LORETA processing system that guides deep brain imaging and treatment so that you get a visible 3D QEEG every session-that is a fresh, real time brain scan guiding your training every session. These medical instruments are FDA cleared for doctors only-not like the brain training toys you see for sale for unsupervised use all over the internet.

S-LORETA deep brain neurofeedback

This method uses a full 19 channel cap to see and train all the brain waves from delta up to gamma, at a level of inches deep into the Limbic system-the emotional control center of the brain. Most neurofeedback only reaches 6 mm into the brain below the scalp. This deep limbic region regulates emotions, detects lies and errors, is deeply involved in the sympathetic and parasympathetic balance of the nervous system, it is heavily involved in PTSD, and it contributes much to the control and regulation over the endocrine (hormonal) and immune systems. It uses Z-scores which are power or amplitude scores from over 1200 normal brains to compare to yours to train up or down the voltage output of brain regions superficial and deep. Some areas become too powerful or too weak in their output. It uses beautiful harp sounds and can show most of the brain visually with color codes in 3D in real time as you train. We can also train with your favorite movie, show or video, or with brain-based video games.

ISF-Infraslow fluctuation Basic

This method uses 5 wires to train the lowest foundational resonant frequency of the brain, far lower frequency than the delta, which was previously thought to be the lowest. It plays very soothing low pitch rumbles that feedback to your brain, training it to find its Optimal Frequency and that feels fantastic. This is not simply amplitude or coherence, but it can combine all of these and even do cross-training between regions and wavelengths.

ISF-s-LORETA

This method combined the Infraslow waves with the rest of the waves throughout the brains deep and superficial regions and allow much flexibility in tailoring training to complex and delicate imbalances.

Coherence or connectivity training

This method is not training amplitude or power. It trains the connectivity or crosstalk between near and far brain connections. It is about communication, not power. This method trains you to turn down hyper cross talk channels, or to turn up messages when they are deficient across certain pathways. This coherence has a direction, just like a pair of dancers has a lead and a follower. It matters which brain regions are leading the signal and which are receiving. We can train your brain to correct errors in cross talk communication channels, so it calms down excessive chatter or raises needed talk between vital disconnected regions.
