Have you ever been anxious and wished you could calm yourself down? Or have there been times when no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn’t concentrate? NeuroFit is wellness training for your brain, based on the scientific principle of neuroplasticity, which is the ability to learn new habits and form new connections. It’s a way to change your cognitive processing and emotional regulation so you can train yourself to shift from a stressed state to a relaxed one, or a foggy brain state to one that is focused and highly motivated. In this webinar, licensed neurotherapist Ashley Wiegand explains what NeuroFit is, how it works, and who may benefit from receiving this new wellness therapy available at PALM.
Imagine you’re sitting in a meeting for work. Your boss is talking about planning for the next quarter. You have a notebook out and you’re scribbling notes. Then, you hear a ding from your phone, which is lying face-down on the table next to you. You start to wonder who it’s from, what it’s about, and if you need to check it. You quickly glance at it to make sure it’s not something pressing. In the time since you first heard the ding, you’ve completely switched gears in your brain and missed several minutes of discussion on the next quarter’s goals.
It turns out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Not only that, but it’s good for your brain. Remember those piano lessons you took as a kid? Memorizing verb conjugations in Spanish? Volunteering at a food pantry? Believe it or not, revisiting some of those long-lost interests or finding similar ones later in life can actually rewire your brain to become healthier and prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s.
As we age, neuroinflammation and changes to blood flow impact our ability to concentrate, remember details, and process information. However, scientists have learned that older adults can build neuronal connections just like younger people and minimize the aging process of the brain. What can you do to optimize your brain performance as you age? In this webinar, Dr. Sita Kedia will address the best ways to improve your cognitive function, reduce your risk for dementia, and maintain mental acuity as you get older.
Is your child having problems with focus, attention, stress, anxiety, or school performance? PALM Health has a neurofeedback package specially designed to help children and families address these symptoms. Neurofeedback, or “brain training,” is a learning therapy that measures brainwaves, then provides performance-based feedback to improve various brain functions such as attention. The virtual package includes your choice of all-virtual sessions or a combination of in-person and virtual sessions, as well as two months of remote neurofeedback software and equipment rental.
All of us have probably experienced episodes of brain fog at some point in our lives. It’s not uncommon to forget someone’s name or where you parked the car. However, if you find these incidents happening frequently or on a daily basis, you may be suffering from persistent brain fog.
Students seeking to improve academic performance or students with ADHD can benefit from neurofeedback sessions, which help to improve focus, memory, and mental clarity, as well as reduce performance and test anxiety. This summer, PALM is offering a Neurofeedback Student Package for school performance and ADHD, which will be addressed in more detail at the seminar. Ashley Wiegand will be our main speaker.
