Brain / qEEG
Circle of Health is the first holistic center in the United States to offer groundbreaking office-based technology from MyNeurva, uniquely tailored to those experiencing symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Internet Gaming disorder (IGD), anxiety and over 100 other indications. It’s also for anyone seeking alternative ways to function at a higher level such as executives.
The technology uniquely combines Brain Electrical Analysis & Mapping (BEAM) and Computer Assisted Cognitive Rehabilitation (CACR). It employs processes of salience/default coupling and operative conditioning. Data is analyzed and protocol routinely adjusted to the unique needs of each individual through a proprietary system called ANNA (Advanced Neural Network Analysis). It is widely believed that successful cognitive function relies on a healthy coupling between the salience and default mode networks of the brain, which can become dysfunctional for myriad internal and external factors including TBI, PTSD, IGD, anxiety and countless others. BEAM, CACR and ANNA combine to help offer alternative assistance that many people have been searching for.
Appointments are all conducted in our office on what is affectionately called the “Scorpion Chair”. The terms “ANNA” and “Scorpion Chair” were coined by MyNeurva’s founder, Dr. Freddy Starr in 2014 and have since experienced rigorous development. The name ANNA resonates particularly close to the heart as it is also the name of Dr. Starr’s six-year-old daughter who passed away in 2008 due to epilepsy. The process has been used overseas for several years and while the term “Scorpion Chair” may sound intimidating, it is comfortable, drug-free and non-invasive.
Following is a before and after example of a 50-year old, male patient who fell and hit the right front side of this head at age 7. As was normal in the 1970’s, no treatment was sought and the injury was forgotten about over time. The patient is currently a top-performing individual, but always sensed there was something amiss, including lifelong attention issues, fatigue and a brain that did not seem to work when he wanted it to. Forty-three (43) years later a brain map was obtained demonstrating the exact area the injury occurred. The patient engaged in 10 sessions of Computer Assisted Cognitive Rehabilitation (CACR), which is an advanced form of Neurofeedback. In this treatment, the patient wore a cap that read his brainwaves, and “coaxed” the brain into a more electrically normal posture. After 10 sessions of CACR, the patient reported a greater sense of calmness, increased attention, and improved ability to handle high-stress situations.
In addition to the patient noticing a profound effect, his brain map also demonstrates a significant improvement over the initial scan (top) as compared to the image on the bottom after 10 sessions:
