Neurofeedback Supports Women’s Health
Because women have specific reproductive cycles in their lives, they have certain health concerns and possible symptoms that neurofeedback can help.
Often, women’s health is thought to be related to their ovaries or uterine functioning, and that can certainly be the case in certain disorders. However, with the normal biological processes of menstruation and menopause, many discomforting symptoms actually originate in the brain. By helping the brain function better through neurofeedback training, symptoms of PMS, perimenopause, and menopause can be resolved or reduced.
The brain is linked to overall well-being in more ways than is widely known. Since women have different life cycles which impact their brains in different ways, neurofeedback can supply a solution that focuses on the brain where imbalances originate.
A Clear-Sighted Option
Medication and hormonal procedures are not always the answer. Neurofeedback supports women’s health in a controlled and easily measured approach. Training the brain helps it function better. More women are choosing neurofeedback as a clear-sighted option to help balance their bodies through life transitions.
There are times when women feel “out of whack” due to hormonal cycles. Cases of PMS for instance, are known to introduce a further state of imbalance all through a number of the body’s systems. With neurofeedback women can be afforded a regulative option which guides these cycles into a state of balance.
There’s no doubt that for some women PMS can be an agonizing event, sometimes month after month or year after year. Research has shown neurofeedback to be effective in reducing the effects of PMS to the point that women no longer worry it will interfere with their daily living.
One study involving 24 sessions of neurofeedback for women with PMS demonstrated these positive effects in 9 out of 10 women, while some found that they actually experienced no more symptoms of PMS.
The Truths in the Myths
Neurofeedback illustrates that some of women’s symptoms are “all in their heads” physiologically and not psychologically. It trains the brain into operating with higher levels of control and stability, which in turn stabilizes the many symptoms of PMS and menopause. A number of women’s hormonal symptoms are a result of dysregulation in the brain, and neurofeedback provides a way to normalize unhealthy brain patterns. Once the brain is working better, symptoms tend to resolve.
Neurofeedback – Getting to the Root
For women who’ve experienced disruptions to sleep, focus, mood, energy and attention, other adjunct symptoms may arise as well. Anger, for example, as well as migraine or seizure disorder has been known to arise from PMS. When these issues are handled with neurofeedback, the benefit to the brain, and in essence the whole body system, is well worth considering.
Managing Menopause and Other Concerns
The specific reproductive cycles women undergo in their lives contribute to a number of possible health concerns. Uterine functioning, as well as the ovaries, are often considered to be related to women’s health. However, with the normal biological processes of menstruation and menopause, many discomforting symptoms actually originate in the brain. This is where neurofeedback can help. By helping the brain function better, symptoms of PMS, perimenopause, and menopause can be resolved or reduced. In cases where women express vulnerabilities during such hormonal shifts, there can be a negative impact on overall brain function and stability. Cases of panic, rage, anger or even seizures become more possible. Intervention via neurofeedback ensures a regulatory solution which does not rely on medication or hormonal treatments to facilitate well-being.
