Depression is one of the highest widespread mental illnesses in the United States, with an estimated 16 million adults suffering from the condition each year. Depression can start at any age, although it is more common to start when someone reaches adulthood and is suffered more by women than men. Untreated depression can wreak havoc on both the mind and body, casing issues like headaches, stomach problems, anxiety and shortness of breath.
A common misconception about depression is that it is always triggered by an event. While it most certainly can be, it has also been linked to genetics, with many depression patients having a family history of the illness. Another misconception is that there is a single kind of depression. There are several different types, Major Depressive Disorder – where the person has been suffering for more than two weeks, Persistent Depressive Disorder– where the person has had symptoms for over two years, Postpartum Depression – suffered after childbirth, Seasonal Affective Disorder – depression triggered by the lack of sunlight often round in the winter months.
Neurocore is dedicated to helping people live their best possible lives by working with patients to determine what the underlying issues for brain disorders and creating a personalized treatment program. Using state of the art qEEG technology, where sensors record brain activity, data is recorded and analyzed to determine the best plan of treatment. This data is used in combination with several other tests, Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Integrated Visual and Auditory Continuous Performance Test (IVA), Behavioral Checklist to form a personalized care plan.
Neurocore helps a wide variety of issues, including depression, ADHD (including Adult ADHA), Anxiety, Autism, stress and sleep disorders. It’s been a long-held misconception that the brain can’t change. In recent years, however, that has been proven to be not true, the brain is not hard-wired and can be retrained to function better. By repetition, practice and positive reinforcement, the brain can be taught to function at a more normal rate to alleviate brain disorder symptoms.
