Are there any side effects?
Biofeedback and Neurofeedback are completely safe and non-intrusive, and no detrimental side effects are associated. Both are considered exercise and learning, so that you will be closely monitored.
Will I still need medication?
As your brain and body relearn healthy patterns, it may be necessary to re-evaluate your medication dosage. Your doctor should handle any changes in medication. As your Parkinson's Health Advocate, I can discuss your changes with your care team.
How many sessions will I need?
Every person with Parkinson's is unique. Given over 20 years of experience, I can better understand the training duration after our first evaluation, which will include a comprehensive history intake. I will also look at the EEG biomarkers of your Parkinson's to help guide your program duration.
Why doesn’t my doctor know about this?
Biofeedback and Neurofeedback are not taught in most medical schools. Understanding the way the brain works is always changing and advancing very quickly. We are in the frontier of Neuroscience, and everything the brain manages is now within our reach.
