Brighten Your Brain with Biofeedback

Compliments of Susan Antelis, MPS, BCIA-BC, EEGC, LMHC

Network Biofeedback Services, Inc. 516-825-6567

Recent research shows us that the brain needs four basic types of nurturing to help it to help you stay bright and alert, yet calm and relaxed at the same time!

1. First, you must remember to drink enough water to prevent dehydration, fatigue and confusion. What is enough water? One 8oz glass or bottle every three hours during waking time would work very nicely in this regard.

2. Second, remember to eat protein at every meal, especially breakfast and NEVER skip breakfast; the brain is busy creating dopamine to help you focus and concentrate in the morning; that is when it needs protein to help facilitate dopamine production. Never let your blood sugar fall by skipping meals; that dulls brain functioning and creates mood swings and irritability.

3. Thirdly, the length and quality of your night sleep will determine how alert and calm you are the next day. Avoiding caffeine and liquids before bedtime and doing a simple relaxation exercise before bed will help you to go into the sleep mode in a more relaxed manner. Then, hopefully you will fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, waking up refreshed and renewed.

4. Finally, the way you BREATHE, has a very powerful influence upon how you experience your daily activities; how you respond to stressors, real or perceived.

Breathe slowly, in through your nose to a slow count of 4 or 5

Do not hold your breath, but let it out slowly through your mouth or nose to a slow count of 5 or 6.

As you exhale, let your jaw & shoulders drop.

Repeat this 2 or 3 times many times per day for best results over time.

Biofeedback uses non-invasive devices to measure how effective your relaxation interventions are and can then also guide you to learn how to control your body’s stress responses. This can help to mediate or diminish symptoms such as: Migraine and tension headache, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, Raynauds syndrome, ADHD, ADD, insomnia, tinnitus, high blood pressure and more.
