“I have a client challenged with depression, anxiety and sleep disorder. After 10 hours she felt some of her symptoms lift. Within 20 hours she had her first good night’s sleep in years. After 25 hours, she felt so much better she went to the doctors and, with his consent, stopped her medication for depression. She comes back every once in a while for a mini-session for her sleep disorder. She is so grateful for NeurOptimal®: it has changed her life!”
“[A woman], admitted to the hospital on 2 occasions for depression and anxiety, did 45 sessions of neurofeedback. She is now off all meds and experiencing no depression or anxiety.”
“A 27-year-old college junior came to me with extreme social anxiety, to the extent that she would have panic attacks if the professor called on her or she had to make class presentations. Her symptoms totally resolved after 10 NeurOptimal® sessions, her grades improved dramatically, and she was able to make presentations to incoming freshmen and make videos for her communication classes without symptoms.”
“A man came because he was depressed. He had lost his son in an accident 3 years ago, had changed jobs and did not feel appreciated in his work place. After 6 trainings he started looking for another job. He is now happily employed in a new job which takes him outdoors: he is in touch with nature, on a steep learning curve and loving it. His depression has lifted and he now exercises regularly.”
“I have used NeurOptimal® with two business owners for stress management, which then continued on for peak performance via intermittent booster sessions. After the presenting problems of sleep and anxiety were resolved, both continued because of the sharpness of thinking, ease of problem solving and decision making, and inner calmness they experienced as a consequence of attending a session. One of the two enjoyed a number of deep insights involving the resolution of technical engineering design problems during two sessions.”
“Woman, 37 years old. Diagnosed with depression, multiple personality disorder, and has had clouds (smog) in her head for years. After 3 sessions, the smog was gone. After 29 sessions the depression had resolved. She forgot to take her antidepressant medication, resulting in the fact that she did not need to take any anymore. The multiple personality disorder had also resolved for the greatest part.”

Brain training to help with anxiety and ADHD
Linda Ciampa tells us how some patients with severe anxiety of ADHD are using neurofeedback instead of medications to change their brainwaves and help their conditions.
When meds didn’t improve my depression, I tried retraining my brain waves instead
According to the Washington Post, in addition to depression and anxiety, neurofeedback is currently being used to treat a number of other conditions including attention deficit disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, addiction, autism spectrum disorder…
NeurOptimal® is not a treatment for specific conditions. Although it does not directly treat symptoms of anxiety or depression, it is a tool that helps alleviate symptoms of many conditions by improving the overall functioning of the central nervous system.
