How we approach brain health.
Nutrition: Eating a balanced and nutritious diet is essential for maintaining brain health. The brain requires proper nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and B vitamins to function at its best. Our team of experts can provide personalized nutrition plans and advice to help patients achieve optimal brain health through proper nutrition.
Exercise: Regular physical activity helps to improve blood flow to the brain, increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and reduce the risk of chronic disease. We offer tai chi, qi gong, and other programs designed to improve brain health through exercise and movement.
Sleep: Getting adequate, high-quality sleep is crucial for maintaining brain health. Sleep helps the brain consolidate memories, clear out waste, and recharge for the day ahead. Our team can provide guidance on sleep hygiene, as well as recommendations for sleep-enhancing techniques, to help patients get the quality sleep they need to maintain brain health.
Stress Management: Chronic stress can have a negative impact on brain health, leading to cognitive decline and an increased risk of mental health conditions. Engaging in stress-reducing activities such as mindfulness, exercise, and deep breathing can help mitigate the effects of stress on the brain. Our mind-body medicine practitioner and neurofeedback therapy specialist can help patients manage stress through techniques such as mindfulness, deep breathing, and autogenics.
Mental Stimulation: Challenging the brain with new experiences, learning new skills, and engaging in mentally stimulating activities can help maintain brain health and prevent cognitive decline. Our education visits and workshops offer opportunities for mental stimulation and learning new skills, while our team of experts can provide personalized recommendations for maintaining brain health through mental stimulation.
Social Connection: Social connection is important for maintaining both physical and mental health. Interacting with others, forming close relationships, and feeling connected to a community can help reduce stress and improve overall well-being. Our group education visits provide a supportive community for patients to connect with others, share experiences, and build relationships. Our outreach coordinator also works to collaborate with outside doctors to create a team-like atmosphere for our patients.
In today's society, there is an importance of turning words into numbers when it comes to assessing brain and mental health functionality.
You see, when we rely solely on words to describe our mental and brain health symptoms, we are limited by the subjectivity of language. Words can be misinterpreted, misunderstood, or misused. But when we use advanced technology to turn these words into numbers, we are able to gain a much more accurate understanding of what is happening inside our brains.
Think about it, with technology such as Brain View Neuralscan Pro, we are able to use imaging techniques like qEEG to measure and quantify brain activity. This allows us to identify specific areas of the brain that may be affected by a particular condition and to track changes in brain activity over time. We can also use advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques to analyze this data, helping us to identify patterns and correlations that would be difficult to detect by visual inspection alone.
But the value of this technology goes beyond just getting a better understanding of what is happening inside our brains. When we use technology to turn words into numbers, we are able to develop quantitative measures of brain and mental health symptoms. This allows us to more accurately diagnose and treat conditions, as well as monitor progress over time.
But most importantly, by turning words into numbers, we are able to empower individuals to take control of their brain and mental health. They can understand and track their symptoms, and work with their healthcare providers to develop the most effective treatment plan.
Let us continue to push the boundaries of technology in the pursuit of better understanding and improving brain and mental health. Together, we can change the way we think about and approach brain and mental health, and empower individuals to live their best lives!
At Texas Center for Lifestyle Medicine, we understand the importance of collaboration with mental and neurological health professionals in order to provide the best possible care for our patients. That's why we work closely with a wide range of health professionals, including neurologists, primary care doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists, to ensure that our patients receive comprehensive and holistic care.
When working with other healthcare professionals, we provide them with detailed reports of our patients' brain and mental health symptoms, using the data collected from our advanced technology. This includes information on brain activity and physiology, as well as quantitative measures of symptoms. This information can be used by the collaborating health professionals to develop an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for the patient.
We also work closely with health professionals to monitor the effectiveness of treatment, using our technology to track changes in brain activity and symptoms over time. This allows us to make adjustments to treatment as necessary, in order to ensure that the patient is receiving the most effective care possible.
In addition, we also provide education and training to mental health professionals on the use of our technology and how to interpret the data it provides, allowing them to integrate the technology into their practice, and provide the best care for their patients.
Overall, our goal is to work closely with mental health professionals to provide the most comprehensive and effective care for our patients, and to empower them to take control of their brain and mental health.
Our clinic offers a range of services for brain, cognitive, and mental health. Our team of expert practitioners includes Mind-body medicine practitioner Geny Moreno, behavioral neuroscientist Dr. Francesco Amico, PhD, integrative and functional medicine doctor Dr. John Kelley, and Dr. Cheng Ruan who oversees the quality of care. Jillian Reissig serves as our outreach coordinator, working closely with outside doctors to create a collaborative, team-oriented atmosphere. Together, our team provides a range of treatments including neurofeedback therapy, mind-body medicine, and integrative and functional medicine to help patients achieve optimal brain health and well-being.
In addition to our individual treatment services, we also offer group education visits online. These sessions are designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of brain health through an interactive didactic style discussion. Our workshops focus on developing tools for resilience, such as mindfulness, breathing techniques, autogenics, and other mind-body medicine modalities. These workshops are led by our team of experts and are designed to empower patients to take control of their own brain health and well-being. Through our group education visits, patients can learn from our team and from each other, fostering a sense of community and support.
It's important to note that most of our services are billable through medical insurances, however, the coverage will vary depending on the patient's specific insurance plan. We recommend that patients check with their insurance provider to determine their coverage for our services. Our team will work with patients to help them understand their insurance benefits and will assist them in navigating the insurance process to ensure they receive the maximum coverage possible for their treatments. We want to make sure that our patients have access to the best care possible and will work with them to make our services as affordable and accessible as possible.
Neurofeedback therapy is a cutting-edge treatment offered by our clinic that helps patients improve brain function and address a variety of neurological and psychological conditions. Led by our expert neurophysiology scientist, Dr. Francesco Amico, Ph.D., our neurofeedback therapy is convenient and accessible, as it can be done remotely from the comfort of a patient's home.
Neurofeedback therapy involves monitoring brain activity and teaching the brain to self-regulate through positive reinforcement. By providing patients with real-time feedback on their brain activity, our neurofeedback therapy helps them learn how to improve their brain function and address conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, memory loss, PTSD, and more.
At our clinic, we use the latest technology and equipment to provide patients with the most advanced and effective neurofeedback therapy possible. Our team of experts, led by Dr. Francesco Amico, Ph.D., is dedicated to helping patients achieve optimal brain health and well-being through neurofeedback therapy.
