Another tool for my TBI healing journey.
After my accident in 2019 I couldn't remember a lot of things including people. I also was dealing with daily extreme fatigue dizziness, depression and panic attacks.
There were many times Jim had to sit with me as we went through my Facebook page, with him reminding me who people were and how I knew them.
Many times Jim Noe sat with me as I cried begging for solutions.
I still have my down days but I'm now able to cope with them a lot better.
One of the things Ive been doing is neurofeedback therapy at Dr. Shelsons office in Caro.
And my latest brain mapping test results as of 9/1/21 show a significant healing in my brain!
The colored spots on my brain mapping photos are hurt spots. After only 10 sessions(5 months) it shows on my new brain mapping photos, no colored hurt spots.
Its helping heal my brain!
I can physically and emotionally feel a positive difference!!
I still have at least 10 more sessions to do. There are some deep spots in my brain you cant see in these photos that still need work on.
But I am very happy with my results so far. Healing takes time.
Im sooooo thankful for Dr. Shelson and his amazing staff!!
They have a Caro, MI office A office opening in Frankenmuth in October And Offices in California! Reach out to them for more info. https://www.drshelson.com/
First they did a EEG map of my brain to see what was damaged and what my issues are.
Then I sit in a room watching my fav TV show (Friends) for 20 mins.
It does not hurt to do!
Afterwards for the first 24 hours it feels like I studied for a test all night long.
It usually takes about 40 sessions.
Neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, is the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. These changes range from individual neuron pathways making new connections, to systematic adjustments like cortical remapping. Neurofeedback, or electroencephalography (EEG) in medical terms, is a non-invasive way to control and measure your brain waves and body temperature. This form of therapy allows your neurofeedback provider to retrain an otherwise involuntary body process – i.e. your brain waves – through conditioning.
Because common conditions like depression, ADHD, anxiety, concussions, and more occur when your brain waves aren’t working together in perfect balance. Neurofeedback therapy allows you to retrain specific areas of your brain to bring it back to its functional best.

After my test results, my assistant Tammy took me to the beach to celebrate!
