Did you know that Lady Gaga, Morgan Freeman and Janeane Garofalo suffer from Fibromyalgia? In fact, this illness happens to be very common. According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, an estimated 10 million people in the United States, and between 3-6 percent of the world’s population have the condition. Fibromyalgia has a strong genetic component and affects 75-90 percent of women, although it does occur in men and children. Symptoms includ aches and pains, twitching, fatigue, lack of focus and concentration, and insomnia. In addition, they experience belly pain, bloating, constipation, nausea, diarrhea and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), increased urination, dry mouth, headaches and numbness/tingling in their limbs.
Neurofeedback therapy is a pain-free and non-invasive fibromyalgia treatment. Pain receptors in the brains of people who have fibromyalgia experience an increased sensitivity to pain signals. During a Neurofeedback evaluation, a brain map is created in order to measure brain activity and locate the areas of the brain showing abnormal levels of activity, an imbalance, and or a lack of connectivity. Neurofeedback therapy will reduce pain, improve cognitive function, lessen anxiety and treat insomnia (symptoms related to fibromyalgia). www.eustacheinstitute.com
