NEUROFEEDBACK TREATMENT

The last century of neuroscience research has greatly increased our knowledge about the brain and, particularly, the signals emitted by neurons firing in the brain. The patterns and frequencies of these electrical signals can be measured by placing a sensor on the scalp.

Through Neurofeedback you can transform your life using brain biofeedback. Probably you want to know how Neurofeedback can help you or someone else in your life.

We are able to teach our brain changing its activity through a sound and vision feedbacks.

 

The Neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, as it is also called, is a brain training where, through a specific software, the brain directly controls and does all of the work for the person that needs some kind of help. To see how you progress and grow is the important feedback, so that you can modify your kind of answer.

Neurofeedback is not a cure for each problem, but there is a very large number of conditions that can help you in producing important changes in your illness towards your well-being. However, there are conditions for which  medication and pharmaceutical treatment are still the most effective interventions available.

However, after more than ten years of psychotherapy practice, I have explored alternative therapies for anxiety, depression, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), migraines, addiction, and a lot of other diseases.

 

In my neurofeedback software, I use several different games. All the patients need to do is to allow their selves to observe the screen and listen to sounds. Through your brain you are able to train how relax your mind or how you can focus your attention, and so on.  If you want better results, during the neurofeedback sessions, I suggest even to eat a healthy diet and to sleep enough.

 

Studies have shown that Neurofeedback is very valid for treating depression, when used in conjunction with psychotherapy. Neurofeedback also eliminated migraines in over 80% of patients treated.

Neurofeedback can often be stopped after 30-40 sessions, with the patients remaining symptom free for many years.

It is our duty to preserve and protect our vital organs so that we may continue to thrive as human race. Our mind is vital to our own existence, our family, our friends, our patients, our planet. That is one of the goals why I currently use neurofeedback instrument on my own brain.

 

These are the commonly recognized frequencies generated by different types of activity in the brain:

Brainwave type                  Frequency range                Mental states

Delta                                       0.1 Hz to 3 Hz                      Deep, dreamless sleep, nonREM sleep, unconscious

Theta                                      4 Hz to 7Hz                          Intuitive, creative, fantasy, dream

Alpha                                     8 Hz to 12 Hz                       Relaxed (but not drowsy) tranquil conscious

Low Beta                               12 Hz to 15 Hz                     Relaxed yet focused, integrated

Midrange Beta                      16 Hz to 20 Hz                     Thinking, aware of self and surroundings

High Beta                              21 Hz to 30 Hz                     Alertness, agitation

 

Meditation helps you to relax yourself. Connect to a sense of peace and calm by clearing your mind of thoughts and distractions.

The research discoveries of modern neuroscience are showing us the most effective tools and techniques to reverse the impacts of stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression on our clients’ brains.

I can help clients strengthen their capacities to rewire the patterns of neural circuitry. I can help them to develop a trustworthy competence in healing so that they can bring deeper awareness, empathy, resonance, and connections with others into their lives.

Neuroplasticity is important and I use the basic mechanisms of brain change to recover any derailed development of the client’s brain and deepen their somatic, emotional, relational, and reflective intelligence.

It is possible to nurture the physical brain and lead clients through a trajectory of healing into resilience and post-traumatic growth.

 

I am always amazed at what is possible in terms of helping clients heal so they can flourish!

SOUL HUNTING Therapy

SOUL HUNTING (or Soul Retrieval) Therapy

How your “loss of soulreturns through Shamanic Journey and Trance Dance

According to the ancient knowledge about shamanic healing, when your body or your mind lives a traumatic experience, you lose a part of your soul and this causes an energetic imbalance. This imbalance is often the source of emotional troubles or physical diseases.

Such imbalance is involved also with the inner sphere, the deeper part of the person, the one connected with consciousness.

According to shamanism, the “spiritual healing” was and is the basic of body-mind healing. The shamanic technique or “soul hunting” that I am using, about rebalancing the energy of my clients, is generate from this idea of holistic medicine.

The healing of “Soul-Hunting” is an ancient practice taken from our ancestors. “Soul loss” has been a major cause of disease and illness since prehistoric times. Our ancient ancestors have been using the ritual of “Soul Hunting” for healing the life traumas which cause soul loss for over 40.000 years.

We have doctors for the body, for the mind and for the heart, but we have yet to recognize ways to heal our own spirit when it is distressed, alienated or diseased.

In this vision, each person that has just lived a trauma is a loss of a “bit of soul”. Everyone has experienced at least once a sensation of emptiness after an experience of violence, frustration, illness, or loss of a beloved one.

The alive emotional and sensorial fullness experimented during the adolescence is progressively lost as a result of the traumas, and it becomes more and more barren: motivations for living, ideals, inner well-being are slowly lost.

Soul Hunting is a “ritual journey” that I use moving in a “parallel dimension of the world” and looking for your lost parts of soul; after that, I go to recover back the soul part that was removed as a consequence of the trauma, and sweetly and lovely invite it “to come back home”.

It is an unforgettable sensation when one of such departed pieces of soul “come back”: the reintegration and recovery are really perceived, and it leaves you innerly enriched and pacified.

Anthropologists teach us that, as human race, we grow until an age between sixteen and seventeen years, after that the maturation process stops, crystallizes itself. Shamans say that it happens because of the loss of too many pieces of soul: we are no more a complete individual, but keep only fragments of our original wholeness. Shamanic “soul hunting” offers the chance to resume this interrupted process of growth, independently from our physical age, and starting again to live every moment of our existence in its fullness.

The technique of Soul Hunting cannot be understood and fully explained only coming from a rational point of view, from the “left hemisphere” of the brain: it is an experience to live and to evaluate on the deepest levels of our being. It is more to be felt and seen with all our senses than what we can literally see with only our eyes. ‘Soul loss’ is the loss of parts of ourselves which contribute to our intelligence, clarity, vitality, well-being and health.

After a Soul Hunting experience, immediately “something happens“: emotional, sexual, relational and affective problems dissolve themselves in a wholeness that grows every time that new pieces of soul are “brought back home” and a real healing starts happening. Parts of your inner child, teenager and adult that were traumatized and missing return, causing instant healing. You heal and transform your attitudes toward health, sexuality, relationships and much more. You return to your body, more aware, more present and excited about living the life.

In my therapeutic method, as Integrative Medicine specialization, I’m using together psychotherapy, “soul hunting”, neurofeedback, mind-body relaxation, subliminals sound and voice. Each technique is an answer for different part of the life of each client.

The concept of parallel realities is today used almost exclusively by science fiction authors or quantum physic approach and mathematics, for which to assume a multidimensional universe is the only way to understand otherwise unknown aspects of physical reality. On the contrary, it is normal in shamanism:  what we live in the waking condition is no more than a small part of what really exists. In the 60’s many American researchers already declared, thanks to their experiences with altered states of consciousness, that our brain is a “reducer valve” that filters the enormous quantity of information sent to us by physical senses and paranormal perceptions. That is why, for example, people living on an island of Pacific Ocean literally were not able to see the ships of Spanish “conquistadores”, because they didn’t have the mental category able to see them.

The shamanism approach to life and healing is known all of the world, even in western ancient traditions.

In my experiences as researcher, I knew “druids” by Celtic Tradition from France and England, that use also something like “soul retrieval” experience.

Many myths describe the “hero” who ventures inside a “dark forest” searching for the Graal, a talisman, a princess or other symbols of Truth and Tradition. Soul Hunting is an opportunity of living such a journey, without the necessity of going into exotic places, but traveling in one’s own interiority.

I learned by Shamans from many part of the world (Mexico, Dakota, Amazonia, Peru, Bolivia, Hawai’i, and so on) that the real “journey” is never external but an inner adventure, a quest to search a lost inner wholeness, often remembered and no more possessed.

One of my teachers in alternative medicine was Frank Natale. He said: “Our purpose and direction is to empower the individual with the unique skills and confidence needed to live a productive, joyous life….We are teachers who empower others to manifest healing, create their-own well-being, happiness through awareness”.

 

I like to share with you, one of many experiences through the “soul hunting” therapy that I used with my female patient. She had a lot of suffering, both physical and emotional. One of her body problem was a slow stiffening of muscle tone resulting in very strong pain in many parts of her body, include her right arm. The doctors had said to her that there wasn’t specific care because its source was unknown. At my first appointment with her, I used the “soul hunting” and I found a piece of soul loss that was connected with an electricity problem of her body. I saw with my inner eyes that her body had been struck by lightning and had burned a part of muscle of her right arm. Before my “soul hunting” she had much pain in that arm and she couldn’t even raise it. When I finished my technique, she told me that her pain was completely disappeared (gone) and immediately she raised up her arm up to the sky!

Hidden Effects of the Digital Matrix

We are living in a world where evolving communication networks create increasing global connection with – up to this point – hidden and unnoticed effects on the human system. The broadband frequencies of networks interface with our bodies, creating a convergence of technology and biology, and we are being influenced in complete new insidious ways. The human body chemistry, moods and thinking are being affected and it is having an incredible overlooked impact on health, happiness and spiritual well being.

The communication networks produce wireless frequencies that transmit everything from written information to detailed, high resolution images which is received through a new < 7th sense >  within the human system

These frequencies form a digital matrix streaming through the atmosphere and around the globe in real time…. and therefore enter the cellular system of any biological being on this planet.

Scientific facts: Wireless frequencies create a barrage of highly charged, friction producing waves that move from source to device, as well as device to device, while penetrating and circulating through biologic and organic (human) organization.

This includes cellular and nervous systems, circulatory systems, glandular systems and meridian / chakra systems.

Images, headlines, key-phrases and product branding generate and populate all levels of the now social media frequency based lifeline, that acts like a bloodstream within the mass global psyche (i.e “100 monkey effect”)

Humans whether in possession of electronic devices or not are constantly receiving and conducting the subliminal energetic stream of events, opinions and projections through their own MIND decoding information system. It deeply affects chemical, emotional, psychological homeostasis, and produces numerous symptoms that may be a new classification of health maladies.

I have the capacity and capability to successfully remove such energetic storage from the human body….

TRE Series

Anxious. ​ ​Stressed ​ ​out. ​ ​Overwhelmed. ​ ​These ​ ​words ​ ​are ​ ​all ​ ​too ​ ​common ​ ​ways ​ ​to describe ​ ​how ​ ​we ​ ​feel ​ ​on ​ ​a ​ ​daily ​ ​basis. ​ ​Life ​ ​is ​ ​stressful, ​ ​but ​ ​that ​ ​reality ​ ​doesn’t ​ ​have ​ ​to control ​ ​you.

TRE® ​ ​(tension ​ ​and ​ ​trauma ​ ​releasing ​ ​exercises) ​ ​is ​ ​an ​ ​innovative ​ ​approach ​ ​to ​ ​managing and ​ ​mitigating ​ ​the ​ ​effects ​ ​of ​ ​stress ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​body ​ ​and ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​life. Whether ​ ​we ​ ​realize ​ ​it ​ ​or not, ​ ​stress ​ ​is ​ ​something ​ ​that ​ ​impacts ​ ​every ​ ​one ​ ​of ​ ​us ​ ​on ​ ​a ​ ​daily ​ ​basis. ​ ​Our ​ ​bodies weren’t ​ ​designed ​ ​to ​ ​live ​ ​with ​ ​the ​ ​chronic ​ ​and ​ ​sometimes ​ ​toxic ​ ​stress ​ ​that ​ ​so ​ ​many ​ ​of ​ ​us carry.

TRE® ​ ​was ​ ​created ​ ​by ​ ​Dr. ​ ​David ​ ​Bercelli, ​ ​and ​ ​uses ​ ​a ​ ​set ​ ​of ​ ​7 ​ ​gentle ​ ​and adaptable exercises ​ ​that ​ ​can ​ ​be ​ ​modified ​ ​to ​ ​support ​ ​every ​ ​body ​ ​type ​ ​and ​ ​ability, ​ ​to ​ ​elicit ​ ​an intentional ​ ​and ​ ​self ​ ​controlled ​ ​muscular ​ ​tremor, ​ ​deep ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​core ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​body. ​ ​Similar ​ ​to the ​ ​way ​ ​animals ​ ​shake ​ ​off ​ ​stress, ​ ​this ​ ​tremor ​ ​reflex ​ ​seeks out ​ ​and ​ ​gently ​ ​vibrates ​ ​open deeply ​ ​held ​ ​patterns ​ ​of ​ ​tension ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​muscle ​ ​tissue ​ ​and ​ ​fascia ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​body, ​ ​while naturally ​ ​quieting ​ ​and ​ ​re-regulating ​ ​the ​ ​nervous system.

The ​ ​tremor ​ ​originates ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​brain-stem, ​ ​the ​ ​part ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​brain ​ ​that ​ ​regulates ​ ​autonomic body ​ ​functions, ​ ​and ​ ​does ​ ​not ​ ​involve ​ ​the ​ ​emotional ​ ​or ​ ​thinking ​ ​brain, ​ ​so ​ ​even ​ ​historic patterns ​ ​of ​ ​trauma ​ ​and ​ ​stress ​ ​can ​ ​be ​ ​safely ​ ​and ​ ​gently ​ ​released ​ ​without ​ ​re-triggering painful ​ ​memories. ​ ​Essentially ​ ​TRE® ​ ​allows ​ ​the ​ ​body ​ ​to ​ ​do ​ ​this ​ ​processing ​ ​for ​ ​us.

TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​accessible ​ ​and ​ ​easy ​ ​to ​ ​learn. ​ ​Most ​ ​people ​ ​find ​ ​it ​ ​easy ​ ​to ​ ​integrate ​ ​TRE® ​ ​into their ​ ​lives, ​ ​and ​ ​more ​ ​importantly, ​ ​derive ​ ​benefit ​ ​from ​ ​it ​ ​almost ​ ​immediately. ​ ​It ​ ​may ​ ​take only ​ ​three ​ ​sessions ​ ​to ​ ​feel ​ ​confident ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​ability ​ ​to ​ ​regulate ​ ​the ​ ​practice ​ ​and ​ ​stay feeling ​ ​comfortable. ​ ​After ​ ​that ​ ​people ​ ​are ​ ​free ​ ​to ​ ​practice ​ ​on ​ ​their ​ ​own.TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​meant ​ ​to be ​ ​a ​ ​self ​ ​care ​ ​tool ​ ​that ​ ​you ​ ​can ​ ​access ​ ​for ​ ​the ​ ​rest ​ ​of ​ ​your ​ ​life ​ ​to ​ ​promote ​ ​health ​ ​and wellness ​ ​on ​ ​all ​ ​levels.

TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​for ​ ​everyone, ​ ​and ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​practice ​ ​of ​ ​empowerment. ​ ​Our ​ ​bodies ​ ​are ​ ​wise ​ ​beyond belief, ​ ​and ​ ​every ​ ​person ​ ​has ​ ​this ​ ​internal ​ ​resource ​ ​waiting ​ ​to ​ ​be ​ ​expressed ​ ​to ​ ​find deeper ​ ​healing ​ ​and ​ ​calmness. ​ ​Quieter ​ ​mind, ​ ​clearer ​ ​outlook ​ ​on ​ ​life, ​ ​greater ​ ​sense ​ ​of emotional ​ ​resilience.

Whether ​ ​you ​ ​are ​ ​suffering ​ ​from ​ ​symptoms ​ ​of ​ ​post ​ ​traumatic ​ ​stress, ​ ​or ​ ​just ​ ​trying ​ ​to ​ ​keep your ​ ​head ​ ​above ​ ​water ​ ​in ​ ​a ​ ​fast ​ ​paced ​ ​and ​ ​chaotic ​ ​world, ​ ​TRE® ​ ​has ​ ​something ​ ​to ​ ​offer you, ​ ​and ​ ​you ​ ​are ​ ​invited ​ ​to ​ ​come ​ ​and ​ ​check ​ ​it ​ ​out.

TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​safe ​ ​and ​ ​effective ​ ​stress ​ ​release ​ ​technique ​ ​for ​ ​most ​ ​people . ​ ​The ​ ​TRE process ​ ​should ​ ​not ​ ​be ​ ​used ​ ​as ​ ​a ​ ​substitute ​ ​for ​ ​trauma ​ ​recovery ​ ​procedures ​ ​of ​ ​a ​ ​medical or ​ ​psychological ​ ​nature.

List of Hemp Vitamins and Minerals

About the Vitamins and Minerals found in HEMP…

The Vitamins:

FOLATE (VITAMIN B9)

Essential to numerous bodily functions including the production of healthy blood cells and cells that line the digestive tract. It is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth since folate is necessary for the creation and maintenance of new cells, and for DNA and RNA synthesis. Folate is also essential for the prevention of neural tube defects of a fetus during the first few weeks of pregnancy.

THIAMINE (VITAMIN B1)

Plays a critical role in the energy metabolism of all cells. Thiamine aids in the conversion of carbohydrates and amino acids into energy and is essential for proper functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system.

RIBOFLAVIN (VITAMIN B2)

Part coenzymes active in energy metabolism of all cells. It is also essential for body growth, reproduction, red cell production and supports normal vision and skin health.

NIACIN (VITAMIN B3)

Participates in the energy metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It aids in the functioning of the digestive system, nervous system, and conversion of food into energy for normal growth and development.

VITAMIN B6

Aids in the production of antibodies in the immune system, helps maintain normal nerve function and is required for the metabolism of amino acids and fatty acids. Vitamin B6 helps synthesize hemoglobin (red blood cells) and neurotransmitters (communication molecule of the brain). Vitamin B6 helps regulate blood glucose and is critical to the development of the brain and nervous system of a fetus.

VITAMIN E

An antioxidant and serves as the body’s main defense against oxidative damage. It forms part of the cell membrane of red and white blood cells and it protects polyunsaturated fatty acids. Vitamin E is also crucial for normal nerve development.

MINERAL LIST:

CALCIUM

Along with phosphorous is important in bone and teeth formation. It helps to maintain a normal blood pressure and plays an essential role in blood clotting. Calcium is necessary for muscle contraction and for a normal heartbeat.

POTASSIUM

Aids the body’s growth and maintenance. Potassium helps maintain normal water balance between the cells and body fluids, electrolyte balance, cell integrity and is critical to maintaining a heartbeat, proper heart function, the transmission of nerve impulses and contraction of muscles.

PHOSPHOROUS

Together with calcium is vital in the formation of bone and teeth. It forms part of the molecule of the phospholipids that are principal components of cell membranes. Phosphorus is part of the DNA and RNA of every cell. It is essential for growth and renewal of tissues and helps maintain the acid-base balance of cellular fluids.

MAGNESIUM

Assists in absorption of calcium and potassium in the body. Magnesium is also involved in bone mineralization, activating B vitamins, acting as a nerve and muscle relaxant and providing blood clotting. Magnesium is also involved in protein synthesis and is responsible for the release and use of energy from nutrients.

COPPER

Required by our bodies for absorption, storage and metabolism of iron, the formation of hemoglobin (red blood cells) and collagen (connective tissue). Copper helps supply oxygen to the body and is required for brain development and nerve cell communication.

IRON

A major component of hemoglobin and myoglobin, both of which are responsible for carrying oxygen in the blood and to our muscles. Iron is required in our bodies to make new cells, amino acids, hormones and neurotransmitters. Iron is also important for enzymatic activity in energy-yielding pathways and is involved in producing ATP (adenosine triphosphate) the body’s energy source.

 ZINC

Assists enzyme activity in all our cells. Zinc also aids protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism and supports the immune system, growth, development and reproduction, wound healing, healthy skin, nails and eyes.

 MANGANESE

Works with different enzymes to facilitate body processes. It is involved in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood clotting and reproductive hormones. Manganese is also required for normal brain and nerve function.

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS:

LINOLEIC ACID (OMEGA-6)

Plays a crucial role in brain function and normal growth and development. It also helps to stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism and maintain the reproductive system.

LINOLENIC ACID (OMEGA-3)

Beneficial for heart health and supports immunity. Omega-3s reduces inflammation in many body tissues, including the arteries of the heart. It has a crucial role in brain function and growth and development.

OTHER:

DIETARY FIBRE

Helps to promote normal blood cholesterol and regulates blood glucose and maintains a healthy bowel function. Fibre also helps in the maintenance of a healthy body weight by increase the feeling of fullness.

GLYCEMIC: GLYCEMIC INDEX (GI)

A measure of the effects of available carbohydrates on blood glucose. Hemp products do not have significant levels of available carbohydrate therefore the GI cannot be measured. Since most hemp products are high in dietary fibre, this does not affect the blood glucose level. The concentration of blood glucose remains constant as hemp products are consumed.
