"Headaches and Migraines are Next Door Neighbors to Seizures"
"The Ability to say NO to excessive demands Is Dependent Upon Mental Energy Reserves"
Our Point of View
Headaches and Migraines are both brain states that alert us to the arrival of sensory overload. Sensory overload can be described as TOO much information in TOO short a period of time! The more capable a brain is at processing information, the more likely that it will voluntarily take on EXCESSIVE demand levels, to the point where the sensory demand becomes unmanageable. Our brains become chaotic and we find it difficult to continue with our activities. Sensory overload interferes with the sleep process and we find it a challenge to wake rested and restored to mental vitality. Mental fatigue diminishes the ability to control sensory loading and the stage is set for the mental energy instability that causes headaches and migraines.
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor these brains to learn to be efficient during the day and the brains will build up the mental energy reserves necessary to support good quality sleep performance. Neurofeedback is an assistive technology process that can teach these brains to function efficiently. As brains begin to learn to use mental energy wisely, they begin to sleep better and soon discover more ability to control sensory loading. Decision making is enhanced, acceptance of demands is better regulated!
