    Neurofeedback and Mental Health  | MFM 127 RADIO SHOW WSIC 105.9FM #103

    What if neurons can deteriorate or enhance your mental health? How would that change your life if your brain and body working for your instead of against you? – Life-changing right?







    Well, all those things and more are so possible through a process known as neurofeedback.







    In today’s show, I talk about neurons, neurofeedback, and mental health. As I mentioned last week, your brain is like a muscle, something that can be strengthened and trained for peak performance and now that we know from our brain map, the areas of our brain that are working at their best, but also the areas of our brain that can benefit from training, one of the most powerful, and long-lasting ways that we can begin to train our brain and create new pathways is through neurofeedback training.

    Understand mental health, as May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Millions of Americans today experience Mental Health symptoms and oftentimes go unaddressed until a time of crisis. . Building a mental fitness toolbox allows people an opportunity to increase resilience and better adapt to the stressors and demands of life.







    WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH







    Gain a deeper understanding of what Mental Health is and the new sciences, technologies, and strategies that are being by Navy Seals, Olympic athletes, top Mental Health clinics, and entrepreneurs to build mental fitness and create pathways to improving overall mental well-being.







    BRAIN MAPPING FOR MENTAL HEALTH







    Brain mapping and Mental Health. Just like a phone repair is able to ask a couple of questions to run a few diagnostic measures to rule some things out, well think about brain mapping in the same way. It’s a tool that allows us to see what is exactly going on in your brain that could be causing you to feel some of the symptoms you may be reporting.







    IN THE 21st CENTURY







    It’s no longer enough as professionals to just go based on symptom reporting. We need assessments and tools that look at physiology we need to start training in the 21st century if we want to be optimal and mentally healthy.

    Kim Allen was a member of the volleyball and basketball teams starting on each team all four years and was named All-Conference in both sports. Allen graduated with honors in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. Kim went on to attain a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and works within the financial services industry, but her love of sports and her desire to teach kids basketball and volleyball led her to become a coach at the middle school and

    Although Kim has had much success and coached many girls that have gone on to play at the collegiate levels, her greatest joy is to be able to “Pay it forward,” providing a child with the same opportunity and guidance that was given to her. Teaching and aligning life skills with sports in order to help young students reach their dreams is a job she proudly accepts.
