Catching ZZZs to Ward off Alzheimer's Disease

Restorative sleep is critically important to health, yet in our busy society it's one of the things that often gets placed on the back burner. Lack of solid shut eye is attributed to a host of disorders, from weight gain to depression to stroke risk. Experts have long suspected a tie between sleep deprivation and Alzheimer's, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that destroys memory and other crucial cognitive function.  Studies show that while our body is in a deep restful state, the brain's "glymphatic system" is actually busy at work recirculating cerebrospinal fluid to clear out harmful amyloid plaques that cause brain cell deterioration seen in Alzheimer's patients.  
Insomnia takes a toll on the body and affects a person's quality of life, draining energy levels, dampening mood and affecting work performance.  Sleeping aids that are so widely advertised can actually be counterproductive as they do not

drive the brain into the deep sleep stages required for a neurotoxic cleanse. Additionally, those who take sleeping medications often find that they quickly build a tolerance to the drug, requiring higher doses to achieve the same sleep-inducing effect. Side effects like next-day drowsiness, headaches and dizziness as well as "rebound insomnia" when ceasing the drugs are often common problems. 
If you are suffering from chronic insomnia, neurofeedback brain-wave training can help retrain dysregulated brain-wave patterns that often underlie sleeping disorders. Simple, painless and non-invasive, neurofeedback helps patients achieve a sustained, restorative sleep. Significant improvements in restless leg syndrome, bruxism (teeth grinding), sleep walking, nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting), sleep quality and other sleep-related issues have also been reported in patients undergoing neurofeedback brain-wave training. Watch Dr. Chiappino's video above to learn more about overcoming sleep issues with BrainCore neurofeedback therapy.

New Year's Resolution Check In--
How Are Your Weight Loss Plans Coming Along?
Losing weight is number one on the list of New Year's resolutions, but studies show by the time February rolls around, 80% of dieters have given up on their pledges. Lack of willpower and setting fuzzy goals are often at the heart of failed
plans, sabotaging the best intentions.   Whether it's eating less or exercising more, changing old habits is a very difficult task. 
The chiropractic care model is all about helping patients achieve total health and balance with their body. We offer nutritional consultation services and offer specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help our patients reach and maintain their weight loss goals.  To further support our mission, we offer weight loss psychotherapy services at our wellness center.  Enlisting the support of a mentor or coach can help you make behavioral changes that can improve your weight loss outcome. 

Contact our office for more information on nutritional counseling or to schedule a coaching session with our weight loss psychotherapist Dr. Andreas Michaelides. (See special offer in coupon block below.)
ADHD Meds Alert: Stimulants May Raise Risk for Psychotic Side Effects in Children

A study published in January's issue of the Journal of Pediatrics reveals disturbing news that ADHD drugs like Ritalin may induce hallucinations, delusions, perceptional disturbances and other psychotic side effects in children of parents with serious mental illness. 
Of the 141 children and young adults age 6-21 years studied, nearly two-thirds reported hearing voices and other alarming psychotic events. While doctors have long known of the serious side effects that can be produced by stimulant medications "No one suspected that these side effects could be so common," said study lead author Dr. Rudolph Uher.

Unfortunately, medications are often considered a first line of treatment by the medical community for attention and other neurological disorders in children. Neurofeedback is an effective, safe, non-drug therapy that is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a Level 1 Best Support Intervention for ADHD.

If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, call our office to learn how BrainCore neurofeedback can help your child overcome his/her symptoms. 631.265.1223.
