When the brain is injured, the energy in the acupuncture system in the brain is depressed, disorganized, and may show an inflammatory reaction. I use computerized testing of the acupuncture system to determine the numeric values of the energy components of vital brain and body structures affected by changes in the brain injuries. This is done by placing a probe attached to special equipment and the computer on different acupuncture points on the hands and feet. The equipment emit a very small charge of electricity from a 9 volt battery through the acupuncture points and the computer measures how much resistance there is to that electrical energy. The results tell us how much energy is blocked or is allowed to flow freely in the acupuncture system throughout the brain and body.
This fast and safe noninvasive method becomes a map that defines how many different systems of the body are affected by the brain injury and will need to be corrected by different types of therapies. Very low numerical values alert the doctor to possible injuries. Very high values may indicate inflammation or irritation in different areas of the brain and body. There are a special group of acupoints that tell us about parts of the brain that have excessive pressure and warrant further investigation with other testing. The testing takes 45 minutes and can be repeated at intervals to see what the patient’s progress is.
Neurofeedback is another brain retraining tool that very gently re-educates the brain functions and communication with the rest of the body. A baseline evaluation called a Neurofeedback assessment determines what areas of the brain that needs support and retraining. To retrain the brain patterns, the person plays a game on the computer much like certain video games. The game can only progress when the appropriate brain wave response is made in the particular area of the brain that needs to be retrained.
People that use Neurofeedback are those with brain injuries, sports trauma, accidents, falls, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, PTSD, and a whole group of learning difficulties that got started by varying degrees of brain trauma or toxicity induces problems.
