WE UNDERSTAND YOUR FRUSTRATION!

The traditional medical system is built for acute care and disease management and is designed to treat symptoms rather than the core problem. Since 1983 we have helped over 13,000 individuals identify their core health challenges, increase their energy level, cognitive function, strength, general health and more. Stop masking your symptoms and striving just to get by… We’ll show you how to exponentially improve your health for today and the rest of your life!

Discover Brain Focused Wellness!

Like Cars, Brains Need A Tune Up.
We all have 4 primary brainwaves that control our brains. Delta waves regulate sleep, while Beta waves affect our critical thinking skills. However, when these brainwaves start to run too fast or slow or if imbalanced from one area of the brain or another it can affect our ability to function normally. Without help, symptoms like depression, stress, ADHD and sleep problems can start to appear.

We Can Help Tune The Brain Safely.
Michigan Brain Health specializes in brain focused wellness using modern technology to map the brain and accurately identify problem areas. We combine brain training programs like neurofeedback and Interactive Metronome with nutrition and other modalities to correct brainwaves and heal the whole body. When the brain works, the body responds!

The Michigan Brain Health System

Brain training works and has decades of scientific research studies showing its effectiveness.

Our process involves 3 easy steps:

We utilize QEEG Brain Mapping Technology to identlify the specific areas of the brain that are not operating at an optimal level.

The Brain Map report precisely identifies the problem areas of the brain and provides instructions on how to correct them.

Computer guided technology safely retrains the brain to create healthy, optimal patterns on its own. Results are usually permanent.

THE (QEEG) BRAIN MAP

The heart of our system is the Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG), also known as a brain map. This non-invasive tool allows us to precisely identify the areas of your brain that are not running optimally. The QEEG is designed to objectively and scientifically evaluate a person’s brainwave patterns and takes the guesswork out of determining a person’s condition.

The procedure consists of placing a snug cap on the head. Embedded within the cap are 19 small sensors that are designed to measure and record electrical activity (or brainwaves) coming from the brain. These sensors DO NOT put any electrical current into the brain – they simply record signals coming from the brain (similar to how a heart rate monitor passively picks up the hearts electrical activity).

Once your data is collected, it is uploaded to an online database and compiled. Dr. Johnson will analyze your data and generate a report that displays your results in an easy to read format. This report provides a clear, accurate snapshot of your brain and if it is operating optimally. Gather this data is crucial to understanding whether or not we can help.  If accepted into care Dr. Johnson will develop a protocol that is tailored to your individual needs.  As the brainwave patterns normalize, the brain is able to operate more efficiently often bringing significant symptom relief.

NEUROFEEDBACK SESSIONS

Neurofeedback has 3 main goals –

  1. Identify irregular brainwaves (Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Theta)

  2. Guide those brainwaves back into regular patterns

  3. Teach the brain to maintain regular patterns permanently

Neurofeedback works primarily by monitoring brainwaves on the surface of your head. To start, small sensors are placed on your scalp. These sensors have a paste on them which makes it easier to pick up brainwave patterns. For up to 30 minutes, you get to watch a movie of your choice, listen to music or an audiobook. That is all that is required of you to do. It’s noninvasive, uses no drugs and does not involve any radiation.

During a session the computer is monitoring your brainwaves, looking for any that are out of the normal range. When it finds one, the system triggers a response that changes the movie or music. This change is not annoying, but it is subtle enough to get your attention and make you focus more. Refocusing corrects the irregular brainwaves, which then move into the normal range. At that time, the movie or music will resume normally. This process is called Operant Conditioning. Over the course of multiple sessions, the brain eventually learns to make healthy patterns on its own.

Once healthy brainwaves are established, the patient will see their condition improve or be eliminated, often with permanent results.

The FDA has already approved neurofeedback training for stress management, to help control chaotic thoughts, help people relax, help them meditate. In fact, the FDA recognizes that neurofeedback has NEVER produced a serious side effect since it was first discovered over 40 years ago. There are also thousands of research articles and personal testimonials that prove its effectiveness. Click a box below to learn more.

Why We Offer Neurofeedback

“Many patients come to us after seeing their primary care physician, who only offered drugs for their symptoms. But drugs do not always work well on neurological problems. That’s because the root cause often lies in the brain’s production of brainwaves. There are many influences on brainwave production, including challenges with diet, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal dysfunction, musculoskeletal imbalances, toxin overload and more. Each person needs to be evaluated for the underlying causes of unhealthy brainwaves.”

“These people who come to us have tried many other methods and are fed up. The best part is that our system eliminates the guesswork and provides an accurate snapshot of brain issues. Then we target those problem areas using neurofeedback.

Once we show a patient their brain map and they can visually see just what is wrong, they become very excited about the possibilities for permanent relief.”
