IASIS microcurrent neurofeedback.That's a service that I brought in over the last year, year and a half, because over the last three years, I've never worked with so many people who have anxiety.So all of the changes that have gone on in our world, in our communities and isolation and working from home has created the tsunami of mental illness.And we know we had mental illness before.We are not counselors here, we are not psychotherapists here.But we do offer therapies that can help reset the brain, help to get out the metabolic waste or the metabolic debris that leaves our brains stuck.I had numerous patients who we weren't making the progress that we wanted to on anxiety and depression.And it was just paralyzing these people that helped me to look for other things that I could provide within my clinic to help that person get out of fight or flight, to help them get out of this sympathetic, constant, overreaction hyper reaction, worrying about everything that's happening in the world that they have no control over.ISIS is a micro current, so it bathes the brain in energy.And the first thing that people get afraid of when they hear that is like shock therapy.And this is 100% not that.In fact, I always use the example first that if you have a cell phone and if you ever talk on the cell phone, if you hold that cell phone up to your ear, you are getting 1000 times more energy to your brain than we deliver strategically with IASIS.Now, that's a big deal.Nobody should be holding their phones up to their head.If you need to talk on the phone, use a speaker phone.But you don't want that going directly to your brain.That's another problem.As technology gets better and better and better.I am not an expert in that area whatsoever, but it causes people problems.Yeah, there are so many studies about that, about holding your cell phone to your ear, to your head, and exactly what you're saying, the energy and the radiation that's emitted from it. Yeah, right.So it's really quite scary.So IASIS is not that it is very gentle.But I'll take you back to this chronic theme that we have about cellular energy.Your cells in your body go through so many chemical reactions a day.Just like if you eat, you need to poop.Well, your cells do chemical reactions and they create waste.Those are free radicals.We want to get them out of the cells.I talked about near infrared light therapy that helps to remove that from some of the cells.IASIS microcurrent neural feedback is very strategic to help bathe the brain in energy, to give it a reset, to help say, you know what, you've got a little bit too much garbage up there in your brain.That's why you can't get out of this high anxiety state.And we're going to help clear that a little bit, it truly opens up the Glymphatic system, or a lymphatic system that is tied to the brain.So when you think of lymphatics, they're the drainage system, right?We get a swollen lymph node when we have an infection because it's doing its job, and it's getting congested as it's clearing away waste and clearing away waste.Well, if that same system, the Glymphatic system within your brain, is not clearing out the waste, we get bogged down, and the brain is a really touchy spot.It's a hard spot to get to.Not everything can penetrate that blood brain barrier and get to the brain.So, as I talked about before, the thor helmet for healing and repairing post concussion, post stroke, it's got great research that it helps the brain heal.IASIS microcurrent neurofeedback can be used for any brain symptom as well.Anxiety, depression, insomnia, AD HD, tinnitus just keep naming all of those types of symptoms, and people report how it helps in those areas.And there's been great research in PTSD veterans with significant anxiety and depression, and how ISIS microcurrent neurofeedback helped just as much, if not better, than any of the medications these veterans were given.The other cool part about that particular study is that they also did brain imaging at the same time, and they saw the brains change.So most of the things that we talk about that people report changes in this, but yet in that research study, the brain's actually changed.If we can just clear out the debris, the body has a chance to reset and do normal.So people can get one session of IASISand rate anxiety at an eight and feel like it's a five when they're done.On a scale of one to 10. 10 being the worst, they're going to fall apart.They feel like, I got to rip off my skin, I have so much anxiety, I can't stand myself kind of a thing.So we ask them always to interpret and rate it based on what they're feeling, but they can be calm after.And it takes more than one session.People can feel it in one session.Within one to three sessions, they should feel something.And then it's the delivery of that energy and bathing it to help get through whatever is blocking them and to get a release.We always recommend for the IASIS to give it at least ten sessions to evaluate how much it's working for you, and we're monitoring your progress through that, and then it can create a permanent change.But we have to think about the toxins in our life, either negative or toxic people or habits or things we're putting in our body or life circumstances that can uptick that again.But it really can be super effective, help people to get on less medication or not need medication as their body changes, and they cope better.Most of the time when it's anxiety and depression or PTSD.We're also encouraging that they're working with a counselor and doing that type of mental work and emotional work right along with it.But this is the physical thing going on inside their body that talk therapy doesn't get at.So it's a great adjunct.And again, just taking more different pieces of fuel to help fire the body to heal itself. You bet. Yes.And that's interesting with the whole brain thing that you're talking about, some of, like, a bath orI envision water flowing through the brain.I know that's what you're doing because you're talking about electrical currents and allowing it to clear itself and start fresh.
