Neurocore clinic is known as a treatment center for attention and focus issues, lack of sleep, stress and migraines. It was founded by Dr. Tim Royer, a neuro therapist whose worked in several hopitals including Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, in 2004. At Neurocore, they use a combination of two technics to help their patients get better. They teach their patients to breath in deeply, which they call biofeedback and chart the patient’s brain activity, a technic they call neurofeedback. Learn more about Neurocore at Crunchbase.
The treatment process is pretty simple. The patients are taken to a room that’s quiet and has a screen where a movie plays. The patient then sits in a chair to watch the movie. Two electrodes are connected to the patients head through the ear. The electrodes are connected to the screen showing the movie and charts the heart, breathing and brain waves. All the patient has to do during the therapy is watch the movie and breathe deeply. By doing this, the brain is engaged in giving neurofeedback and biofeedback. If the brain responds erratically, the movie either poses or shrinks. Soon, the brain starts recognizing the poses and does its own correction to make the right responses. With time, the patient will be able to go through the therapy with no poses when watching the movie.

This is what makes the treatment so effective. Instead of giving the brain supplements and trying to correct it using behaviour based therapies, this therapy treatment lets the brain figure out the problem and fixes it on its own. This renders the treatment permanent. It’s like a reward system for the brain; function correctly, movie plays. Function incorrectly, movie stops or shrinks.
The beauty of this treatment is that there are no toxic side effects. Prescription meds, often have side effects; skin irritation, bad after taste, among others. This treatment has none. In addition to having no side effects, the correction it does to the brain is permanent. You do not have to keep going back to the hospital to have it done all over again. When taking meds, there is the possibility of the condition recurring. Especially if the medicine prescribed were supplements of an inadequate hormone or chemical. That would mean you have to keep taking the medicine to avoid a relapse.
Neurocore has experienced a lot of success using this treatment therapy to tread ADHD and depression. They say that the therapy has seen 75% of their patients not only spring back to normal but also stop using their prescription meds. Read more about Neurocore at glassdoor.com.
