Neurofeedback and Asthma: Is asthma the undetected variable dragging out your cases?
The domination of asthma in my Midwestern region plays a clear role in multiple Bi-polar, ADD/ADHD, Mood Disorder, Migraine and TMJ cases. On average 66% of cases annually display amplitude variances correlated with allergies observable in their EEG's. Of those cases, 45% have poorly managed/undiagnosed asthma perpetuating presenting mental health issues.Understanding how to detect and assist with respiratory management, combined with Neurofeedback accelerates resolving outcomes. EEG baselines can track asthma and offer clarity on mental health struggles. Interlacing Neurofeedback to stabilize conditions and educate families; recognizing these respiratory cues verses emotional deficits has proven critical for many.
