Today we have had the pleasure of working with six different people in training their brains to benefit from the neuroplasticity and the ability to change their lives by changing their brains. We have been helping people deal with may different issues today. The issues include but are not limited to; bi-polar disorder, depression, twitching, sleep issues, anxiety, panic attacks, fear of flying (also known as aerophobia, aviatophobia, aviophobia, or pteromechanophobia), anger, chronic pain, Lyme’s disease, chronic fatigue, dyslexia, focus issues (A.D.D/A.D.H.D.), trauma recovery, and alcoholism and drug addiction. Four of the six people are already reporting success with their issues.
Today at Brain Training Centers of Florida, we are brain training sevendifferent people who are capitalizing on the neuroplasticity of their brains and this new technology of brain wave optimization with real time balancing. The issues we are helping people with in our offices today include but are not limited to, Bi-Polar Disorder, anxiety, fear, anger, rage, panic attacks, depression, hopelessness, despair, fatigue, chronic pain, Lyme’s disease, alcoholism and drug addiction, pain, multiple traumas, childhood sexual abuse(30 years later), and focus issues.
We brain trained five different people today with the following issues: Lyme’s Disease, long term depression, childhood sexual abuse (35yrs ago), childhood emotional abuse (30 yrs ago), anxiety, Tourrette’s Syndrome, alcohol and drug addiction, panic attacks, focus issues, bi-polar disorder, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, sleep issues and rage issues.
We also did two separate assessments (brain mapping) on individuals who will start brain training tomorrow.
Happy Father’s Day!
Here at Brain Training Centers of Florida, we are open today to serve the needs of our clients. We are brain training four different people in nine sessions for a total of 18 hours of brain training. The four people are here to improve their lives by capitalizing on the neuroplasticity of their brains and our system of brainwave optimization with real time balancing. The issues being dealt with include but are not limited to; alcoholism and addiction, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, fatigue, pain, depression, anger, rage outbursts, and Lyme’s Disease.
Today, we are assisting six different people to train their brains. They are occupying our chairs for a total of twenty hours (2 chairs 10 hours each). The issues we are assisting our clients alleviate are, anxiety, panic attacks, pain, fatigue, reducing symptoms of HIV and Hep-c, sleep issues, depression, alcoholism and addiction issues, childhood sexual abuse, trauma relief (including rape), grief, and focus issues. We are happy to report that most of our clients are feeling extremely well today. Some are still struggling, but can see change happening and have hope for their future.
There may well be more than just meets the eye in the physical and emotional crisis that is Bulimia Nervosa according to recent research. Eating disorders affect more than just the body.
In fact, women with bulimia nervosa appear to respond more impulsively during psychological testing than those without the disorder, and they display differences in nerve pathways – frontostriatal circuits – that help individuals control their voluntary behaviors.
Patients with bulimia nervosa displayed greater impulsivity than did healthy control participants, in a study conducted by Rachel marsh, Ph.D. and colleagues at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute. In the study, patients with bulimia showed greater impulsivity than control patients, responded more quickly and made more errors on “conflict trials” that required self-regulatory control to respond correctly. In the research study, the frontostriatal circuits of bulimia patients did not activate to the same degree as did those of women in the control group.

In an earlier report, it appears that the brain’s opioids receptor system – also known as the endorphin system – may hold the key to understanding and treating bulimia. Researcher Angela Guarda, M.D., assistant professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, found differences in the brains of bulimic and healthy women in specific receptor sites in the left insular cortex of the brain. The insula is involved in processing taste, as well as the anticipation of the reward of eating. It is also involved in drug addiction and gambling.
Bulimia, which is 10 times more common in females than in males, affects one to two percent of adolescent girls and young women in the United States and, in rare cases, may be fatal.
J. James Frost, M.D., Ph.D., professor of radiology and neuroscience at Johns Hopkins, indicated that medications that affect the brain’s opioids receptor system and approaches to the treatment of substance abuse disorders – including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and 12-Step-like programs – may be helpful in treating bulimia.

In 2008, the team at Brain Training Centers of Florida began working with a number of women with eating disorders – especially bulimia nervosa and periodic binging – to assist them in harmonizing their brains and, as a result, limiting or eliminating their eating disorders. To date, the results have been extremely encouraging and the staff of BTC-FL is expanding its services in this area.
