Why incorporate more natural treatment options to manage your anxiety
If you have an anxiety disorder, you know all too well how challenging it can be to find a treatment plan that works for you. Prescribed medications often come with many difficult-to-deal-with side effects. And lifestyle changes, as simple as they may be, can be difficult to adopt and actually stick to. And although talk therapy has shown to be one of the most effective treatments for anxiety, many therapy-goers still struggle with their anxiety on a daily basis.
Incorporating more natural, holistic treatments for anxiety can decrease negative side effects associated with prescription mediation and give you the long-lasting relief you've been searching for.
Neurofeedback: an all-natural, non-invasive anxiety treatment option
If you've been searching for a more natural approach to managing your mental health, one treatment option to consider is neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is an all-natural, drug-free brain training treatment that measures your brainwaves in real-time to help you better self-regulate.
If you've ever heard of the term “biofeedback,” then you may already be a little familiar with neurofeedback as it's very similar, but focused on the brain rather than the body.
Neurofeedback therapy is based on both applied neuroscience and data-based clinical practice, and there's a ton of research supporting its effectiveness in treating anxiety.
Anxiety and the brain
To understand why neurofeedback is so effective in treating anxiety, it's important to first gain an understanding of the relationship between the brain and anxiety. In a healthy brain, the central nervous system produces the right brainwaves at the right time.
There are five kinds of brainwaves: 1) Alpha, 2) Beta, 3) Delta, 4) Gamma, and 5) Theta. People with diagnosed anxiety disorders often have increased beta waves and decreased alpha waves. Alpha waves are most commonly associated with a sense of calm and peacefulness. Beta waves, on the other hand, are associated with alertness and concentration. But when too many beta waves are produced at too high of a frequency, it can cause anxiousness and agitation.
Neurofeedback therapy works to help you learn how to create more alpha waves and fewer beta waves. Through this self-regulation process, you’ll be able to effectively treat your anxiety.
