April is dedicated to Autism awareness. Many of us have been touched by Autism, whether it be a family member or friend. Children and adults on the spectrum face many daily challenges; by spreading awareness we can also spread understanding, compassion and respect.  Follow us on Twitter and Facebook this month as we take part in the worldwide campaign to support those in the Autism community. Be sure to check out our video below on non-drug therapy to help those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) overcome these challenges and maximize learning potential.

Lastly, we've extended the early bird discount deadline for our BrainCore Neurofeedback Summer Brain Booster Camp until April 15! (see details below). Don't miss this opportunity to build a better brain this summer and prep your child for a successful academic year!

April Is Autism Awareness Month

Click here to learn how neurofeedback training addresses core Autism symptoms

Autism is a spectrum disorder that presents a variety of symptoms related to an under or over aroused brain and is characterized by difficulties in socialization, communication and behavior. While there is presently no known cure for Autism, early intervention with behavioral, speech, occupational and other specialized therapies is key to a child's long-term prognosis.  

People with Autism often experience comorbid medical conditions such as mood disorders, anxiety, attention and sleep issues.  Antipsychotics are routinely prescribed to ease disruptive and aggressive behaviors, however these dangerous medications do not address the underlying issues and are known to produce significant side effects.

Research and clinical studies show that neurofeedback is an effective adjunct to educational and behavioral therapies, helping to regulate abnormal brain-wave patterns. Coupled with diet, brain-wave training can help reduce stimming, flapping and impulsivity issues associated with Autism, as well as improve sleep and anxiety issues.   Neurofeedback brain-wave training can help create lasting, long-term benefits in overall cognitive function.

This month we are offering a QEEG brain map at a reduced price of $75 for children on the spectrum. Schedule your "Q" to better understand the nature of your child's neurological deficits and how neurofeedback training can bring balance to your child's brain.  631.265.1223.
Antidepressants During Pregnancy May Increase Autism Risk
  Neurofeedback therapy can     help alleviate depression
  during pregnancy.

The long-standing belief that prescribing antidepressants during pregnancy outweighs the side effects to the fetus may now be up for reconsideration as new research indicates that these drugs that cross the placenta and fetal blood brain barrier may increase the risk of Autism.

A new study published in JAMA Pediatrics reports that expectant moms who took antidepressants during their second and/or third trimester had an 87 percent increased risk for a baby with born with Autism.  Those who took selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), popular antidepressants like Zolof, were shown to have a 200 percent increased risk of having a child on the spectrum, or with birth defects such as club foot, cleft palate and heart problems.

Untreated depression or anxiety during pregnancy can be detrimental to both the mother and baby. Expectant moms who experience depression can find hope in non-drug therapies like neurofeedback training which addresses abnormal brain waves that often underlie depression.  Based on operant conditioning, neurofeedback retrains the brain to produce healthy new brain-wave patterns to relieve the symptoms of depression.  

Neurofeedback therapy can play an important role in pre-conception planning and pre and postnatal care for women with depression.  Call our office to learn how this cutting-edge therapy can help you achieve a healthy pregnancy. 631.265.1223.


It's Allergy Season:  Some Tips to Survive The Sniffles & Sneezes Naturally.
Itchy eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat?  You guessed it - spring is here and for many of us that means seasonal allergies.   Allergy proofing your home is a good idea to head off some triggers like dust and dander, however it is impossible to escape outdoor pollens and molds.   

Over-the-counter medications widely advertised at this time of year can be dangerous to your health; antihistamines can increase heart rate and decongestants may raise blood pressure as well as the risk for other cardiac conditions. 
Acupuncture is a natural and effective means to relieving allergies.  By stimulating precise points throughout the body, acupuncture can affect the immune system, helping to control the body's inflammatory reactions to allergens, reducing or often eliminating symptoms.

Chiropractic is another natural route to reducing allergy flare ups.  Chiropractic adjustments help to relieve tension on the nervous system, enabling the immune system to properly regulate important allergy-fighting hormones and operate efficiently.   Many allergy sufferers find that regular chiropractic care can provide welcome relief and reduce or eliminate reliance on OTC antihistamines.  
Essential oil blends are also a good choice for natural allergy relief.  They can be diffused and used topically to ease congestion and soothe the airways to help facilitate easier breathing.  Our office carries a line of pure, high quality essential oils -- call us to learn more about the various blends and their therapeutic benefits.  We'll be hosting essential oils workshops at our office -- look for lecture announcements on our social media sites and website in the coming weeks!
Don't let seasonal allergies take the spring out of your step!  Our licensed acupuncturist Lori Fortunato is offering $25 off acupuncture for allergies this month (private pay patients).  Visit our office to take advantage of this special offer!  631.265.1223.
