In Brain Training Today: May 31, 2009

Through the Brain State Technologies system of brain optimization with real time balancing, we at the Brain Training Centers of Florida are assisting our clients in capitalizing from the neuroplasticity of their brains to obtain a “black-belt” in training their brains to function at the highest levels they can attain.

Today, yes Sunday (we are open 7 days per week approximately 350 days per year), we are brain training six different people with the following issues; severe depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual abuse, panic attacks, trauma, anxiety, sleep issues, Lyme’s disease, subconscious negative thought patterns, fibromyalgia, psyatic pain, general physical pain, fatigue, and anger issues.

In Brain Training Today: May 30, 2009

We are brain training six different people with many different issues. The issues we are helping people to conquer today include, but are not limited to; alcoholism/drug addiction, anxiety, anger, depression, Lyme’s disease, fetal-alcohol syndrome, panic attacks, fear based decision making, negative subconscious thought patterns, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and physical pain. All of our clients today are already reporting that they are feeling better from brain training with us in the last several days.

Understanding Your Kids’ and Teens’ Brains

Can’t figure out why Junior “just can’t seem to do his chores without being told what to do at least half a dozen times”?

Does Junior Miss’s concept of time seem to revolve exclusively around “later,” unless something is important to her and she wants it “right now”?

Do you know kids who could only understand the concept of “personal responsibility” if it were made into a movie or rap song or they were forced to Google it?

LiveScience.com offers some great (and quick) new insights into the Whys of these unfathomable parental struggles.

Every parent knows that children seem to act before thinking. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court in an historic decision on March 1, 2005 abolished the death penalty for crimes committed by adolescents under the age of eighteen, thereby distinguishing between adolescence and adulthood. In Roper v. Simmons, Justice Anthony Kennedy noted that juveniles under eighteen have an “underdeveloped sense of responsibility… resulting[ing] in impetuous and ill-considered actions and decisions…are more susceptible to negative influences and peer pressure…their character is not as well formed as that of an adult.”

The May 18, 2009 edition of the Web site Live Science.com provides insights into the child’s developing brain and how it develops neural connections as we age. The article also provides a very good (and brief) film to illustrate this process of neural growth.

For more information see:

New evidence appears to indicate that adolescents’ brain waves reduce significantly while they sleep, reflecting a trimming-down or pruning of neurons inside teenager’s brains. And, while the brain decides which connections are important to keep and which are not, this process may have a number of significant implications for the growing adolescent and future adult.

For more information see:

And before you get too frustrated about the fact that your 13, 14, 15, 16 or 17 year old may be a great athlete or just a really nice kid but isn’t very good at self-organized thinking, there are scientific explanations that every parent ought to keep in mind.

In Brain Training Today: May 29, 2009

Today at Brain Training Centers of Florida, utilizing the Brain State Technologies systems of brain wave optimization with real time balancing, we are brain training 4 different people with the following issues; anxiety, anger, panic attacks, a teenager who has struggled his whole life from fetal-alcohol syndrome, subconscious internal turmoil, fatigue, Lyme’s disease, depression, physical pain, a form of tourettes, and sleep issues. Two of the people are starting with us today for their first sessions after their assessments (brain mappings). The other two are reporting great relief from their symptoms. Another very exiting day at Brain Training Centers of Florida.

We are brain training five different people today and performing an assessment (brain mapping) on another person. The issues we are helping the five people overcome through brain wave optimization with real time balancing include but are not limited to; anxiety, anger, influenza, Lyme’s Disease, negative subconscious thought patterns, alcoholism and/or drug addiction (3 of them are recovering alcoholics/drug addicts), depression, athletic performance enhancement, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, panic attacks, sleep issues, physical pain, an out of place atlas, and fatigue.

Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Disease, and Vitamin D deficiency

       Researchers need to examine more closely the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia and Vitamin D deficiency, according to William b. Grant, Ph.D. of the the Sunlight, Nutrition, and Health Research Center (SUNARC).

            Earlier research reports have found low serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] associated with increased risks for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, depression, dental caries, osteoporosis, and periodontal disease – considered risk factors for dementia or found to have preceded incidence of dementia. In addition, studies have reported that those with higher serum 25 ((OH)D levels had greatly reduced risk of incidence or death from cardiovascular diseases. And laboratory evidence for Vitamin D in neuroprotection and reducing inflammation  and biological evidence to suggest and important role of vitamin D in brain development and function.

Dimentia and Alzheimers Disease Risk Factor Articles

While dementia and Alzheimer’s disease retain their ability to strike fear into patients and their families, researchers are developing more efficient clues for predicting the onset of these brain disorders. And early detection remains key to delaying and controlling the progression of these life- and family-changing diagnoses.

Older people (average age of participants in the study was 72 years) who are thinner or are losing weight quickly are at a higher risk of developing dementia, especially if they started out overweight or obese, according to a report published in the May 19, 2009 print issue of Neurology, the journal of the American Academy of Neurology. In addition, those who lost weight at a faster rate over the eight year study were nearly three times more likely to develop dementia than those who lost weight more slowly over time.

The study reflects the idea that in middle age, obesity may be a risk factor for dementia, while in later life it may be one of the first changes that occurs before dementia actually affects a person’s memory.

In a 2008 report in the March 26, 2008 online issue of Neurology, researcher Rachel A. Whitmer, Ph.D. from the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California and a member of the American Academy of Neurology, reported that people with larger stomachs in their 40s are more likely to have dementia when they reach their 70s. In her study of 6,583 people age 40 to 45 in Northern California who had their abdominal fat measured, an average of 36 years later, those who were overweight and had a large belly were 2.3 times more likely to develop dementia than people with a normal weight and belly size.

We brain trained four different people with the following issues; alcoholism, addiction, anxiety, anger, sleep issues, physical pain, out of line Atlas, Lyme’s disease, performance enhancement, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, panic attacks, and excess fatigue. We have had success with all of these issues in our office.

We also performed two new assessments (Brain Mapping) today.

In Brain Training Today: May 26, 2009

Today we are brain training six different people. Five of them are recovering alcoholics and/or recovering drug addicts. One of them has come to us specifically to reduce the inner turmoil in his head stemming from the on-going battle between his sub-consciousness and his consciousness.

The issues our clients have come to optimize include but are not limited to; sleep, anxiety, panic attacks, anger, bi-polar disorder, addiction, craving, pain mitigation, focus (ADD or ADHD), childhood sexual abuse, trauma, depression, HIV symptom reduction, Hepatitis-C symptom reduction, fear, creativity, and hormonal deficiency. Along with some of the issues listed here, one of our clients today has come in to improve his physical performance for an upcoming marathon he is running Sunday.

This appears to be another busy day improving brain functioning thereby improving people’s lives through brain wave optimization with real time balancing. The neuroplasticity of the brain provides a pathway for the amazing experiences our clients are having everyday.
