Creating Better Brains

Low Energy Neurofeedback (LENS) is a revolutionary technique for restoring optimal brain function. It is a brainwave-based biofeedback that has been shown in over 30 years of research to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Addiction, Migraine/Tension Headaches, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia, Autism, Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorders, plus many other disorders.

LENS sends a tiny, imperceptible signal to the brain causing a slight fluctuation in brain waves. This fluctuation allows the brain to reorganize itself, to release frozen, stuck patterns. LENS Neurofeedback helps the brain reset itself for optimal functioning, similar to rebooting a frozen computer. Patients find an enhanced quality of life–one that is calmer and healthier. LENS uses an FDA-registered EEG processor/amplifier and is extremely safe.

Are you looking for more balance and fulfillment, better health and performance? Transform feelings of anger, anxiety, stress and frustration into more peace, clarity and vitality. Heart Math’s Heart Rate Variability (HRV) training offers both monitoring and training to allow you to easily and effectively manage stress, and rebalance your mind and emotions.

Increase your ‘heart coherence,’ a mind-body state directly associated with improved health, emotional stability, mental clarity, and improved cognitive function–a deeper sense of inner balance and happiness.

You will learn how to shift into coherence at will, and readily see and experience changes in your heart rhythm patterns. When we are in heart coherence our physical and mental systems function more efficiently.

We also offer a Brief Sleep Therapy program.  Coming soon.

Medications are the dominant treatment in mental health, but they fail most patients and can have tragic side effects. ‘Trial and Error’ has been the approach to prescribing medication, until now.

Psychiatric EEG Evaluation Registry (PEER) technology was developed by physicians to provide objective information about medication response for similar patients.

PEER combines crowd-sourced data on physician outcomes with EEG, an accepted well-normed test of brain function. PEER uses ‘machine learning’ to improve as outcomes are added. See peer-reviewed studies on PEERDossier.com for more information.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy helps the natural healing process of the body to deliver non-invasive repetitive electrical impulses. Magnetic fields affect the biological processes and are effective in improving symptoms of multiple medical conditions. PEMF stimulates cell metabolism by increasing the flow of electrons and ions across the cell membrane.

This chain of processes leads to the repair and healing of damaged cells. Benefits of PEMF include increased cellular oxygen level, increased cell metabolism, stimulation of electron transport in mitochondria, opening ion channels in cell membranes, increased intracellular fluid and stimulation of intracellular communication.

Additional benefits include stimulation of ATP, release of endorphins, increased blood flow, reduced pain and inflammation, increased range of motion and function, accelerated bone and tissue repair. Increased blood and fluid circulation promotes faster healing from injuries and surgery and improves degenerative nerves in the brain and peripheral sites.

High Performance Neurofeedback (HPN) is a type of brainwave-based biofeedback that has shown clinical efficacy in addressing the symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Post-Concussive Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression, and Attention Deficit Issues (AD/HD).

HPN is the integrative approach to neurofeedback and the most user friendly of neurofeedback systems, producing the fastest results. HPN more directly and rapidly ameliorates suffering, giving patients more freedom, clarity, vitality and ease in their lives. HPN improves the quality of life.

An emerging legacy of the National Football League is a generation of retired players with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Accordingly, there is a need to develop treatments to reduce the morbidity associated with TBI, sustained by the retired NFL players during their playing careers. One treatment device that has made a positive difference is HPN.

Excerpted from a letter to the FDA on February 24, 2016 from Dr. Richard Landis:

“To Whom It May Concern:

We have used the Alpha-Stim CES technology at the Integrative Medical Institute of Orange County since 2002 and successfully used with hundreds of patients for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain.

We have found the Alpha-Stim products to be safe and effective with a full range of patients. The majority of our patients had poor experiences with traditional medications and are in need of a alternative. The Alpha-Stim has provided that safe and dependable alternative for them. I have found it especially effective for patients who have depression and who have had suicidal and/or homicidal ideation side effects from using traditional medications that were black-boxed for such side effects. In the 14 years that we have been using the Alpha-Stim CES, we have not experienced any incident of suicidal and/or homicidal ideation or other major side effect associated with the Alpha-Stim. Given its track record both here at the clinic and with my colleagues who also prescribe the Alpha-Stim CES, I feel confident and secure in prescribing the Alpha-Stim CES with these and other populations-at-risk. It has made all the difference for my patients between just existing in pain and having a productive, happy life…”

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is the application of light–usually a low power laser–to an injury to promote tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation and relieve both acute and chronic pain.

The use of low levels of visible or near-infrared (NIR) light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing tissue damage has been known for almost forty years since the invention of lasers.  Originally thought to be a peculiar property of laser light (soft or cold lasers), the subject has now broadened to include photobiomodulation and photobiostimulation using non-coherent light.

Much of the early work and indeed much of the available data on light therapies is based on laser light.  In recent years, LEDs have become a popular choice for delivering light therapy based on safety, cost and large area of coverage.  A number of prominent researchers have examined the question of whether there is a clinical difference in light sources.  They have concluded that source of light is not as important as wavelength, energy dose and frequency.  LLLT is now often referred to as phototherapy, photon therapy or as photobiomodulation, the use of photons to modulate biological activity, these terms can be used interchangeably.  We use the photonic stimulator.
