More on Electro-Magnetic Radiation and Cell Phones

Below I have posted a round up of stories on the recent news  from WHO on the increased risk of gliomas tied to heavy cell phone use. This issue is obviously still completely unsettled. As I have written before, I have no doubt about the effect of low energy electro-magnetic  (E-M) radiation on the human […]

EEGym® adds QEEG Services

The QEEG (quantitative EEG, a map of brain electrical patterns referenced to normative databases) issue is major in neurofeedback circles. Most of us old-timers don’t really see a need for QEEG in determining protocols–it is definitely not necessary for the three most often used systems in at EEGym. But I’ve come around to see its tremendous value diagnostically; sometimes it can tell us what is wrong with the patient with dramatic clarity, whether it is old head injury, sleep disorder, ADHD, headache, or generalized memory problems.

Breaking News: Cell Phone Radiation Affects Brain Function

Using your cell phone more than 50 minutes daily can affect the normal functioning of the human brain.  The study, out tomorrow in JAMA, also provides another important, although indirect, confirmation of the power of LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) EEG neurofeedack.  As noted in the following story, the new finding upsets the current orthodoxy […]

Bipolar Disorder: Sleep & Carbohydrate Control

Attention to sleep and carbohydrate management are two natural and important factors important in the recovery of Bipolar Mood Disorder. SLEEP. Restorative sleep is important for everyone. It is critically important in mood disorders and is close to the root of bipolar disorder, which is a disturbance in natural circadian rhythms.  Circadian rhythms are the […]

New Research on Genetic Origin of ADHD

A study in Lancet October 23 has added significant evidence to the growing knowledge that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is largely biological.  Non-genetic causes such as abnormal brain development, brain injury or environmental factors are also believed to play a role in the disorder, but this latest study suggests brains of some children with […]

Sports Head Injuries; More Concern

Study Finds Student Athletes Without Concussion Symptoms Remain At Risk. The Indianapolis Star (10/8, Newell) reports that a new study published online this week in the Journal of Neurotrauma has determined that high school football players “may be damaging their brains even if they have not been diagnosed with a concussion.” After examining the helmets […]

Food Additives and Hyperactive Behavior

Scientific evidence is now conclusive that food additives can cause hyperactive behavior. I say that clearly at the top, so there will be no confusion when I add: Food additives do not cause ADHD Food additives cause hyperactive behavior in only some children (my guess is that susceptible adults are more likely to suffer restlessness).
