DID YOU KNOW THE CYCLE-OF-DEPRESSION CAN BE BROKEN IN AS LITTLE AS 5 DAYS? IT'S TRUE!
a mood disorder resulting from ongoing stress to the central nervous system.
It has biological, environmental, and ontological origins that affect
one's emotional and mental life. Depression is not a mental
disease. And, if not remedied, it eventually robs the individual from
experiencing the joys of everyday living.
Have you or a
loved one experienced any of the following for more than 90 days?
Insomnia; feeling tired no matter how much sleep you get; chronic fatigue;
chronic pain; allergies; hopeless despair; non-productivity or lack of
motivation; auto-immune dysfunction; lack of concentration; reduction in
cognitive abilities; impaired organizational skills; irritability;
sensory/motor deficits; anxiety; struggling with feelings of worthlessness
and/or thoughts of suicide, long crying spells; severe headaches, poor
appetite or overeating. If so, you may have depression.
THE COST OF DEPRESSION:
is estimated to cost American businesses $33 Billion per year in absenteeism
and lost productivity. Depression is the second leading cause of lost
days at work. Compulsive overeating, compulsive shopping, promiscuity and
other sexual problems, shoplifting, stormy relationships or repeated romantic
failures including divorce, and frequent job and career changes are often
associated with mood disorders. In many cases, these problems respond to the
same treatments used for mood disorders.

yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up." --Mark Twain
Neuroscience and Biofeedback technology are integrated into a multi-modality approach to holistic living. Advanced technology can test and accurately determine many of the causes of depression. Intensive Neurofeedback & Advanced Biofeedback Training are accompanied by nutritional support, detoxification, meditation, and sensory integration practices with one-on-one personal care to ensure a safe environment for personal change.
Georgia Connor's program has had unprecedented results in the setting of a private practice. The brainwave patterns of clinically depressed individuals actually alter within the first five days of Intensive Neurofeedback & Advanced Biofeedback Training if the individual adheres to their "integrated-therapy-protocols". Results are more dramatic and longer lasting if an individual is not taking prescription anti-depressants. However, in certain cases prescription medication is advantageous and we are willing to work closely with doctors prescribing medication. Neurofeedback technology is a wonderful tool for viewing allergic reactions to prescribed medication, and how they affect the brain. Also, it is most helpful in assisting individuals in titrating down on drugs in a more serene way.
In many cases a team of professionals will be integrated into the over-all program. Other specialists in naturopathic medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, structural rehabilitation and of course MD's are available for both standard and alternative medical care as needed.
An initial consultation will be set up with Georgia Connor to determine if the individual is a candidate for this program. From that meeting, an Assessment Day is scheduled. Comprehensive testing may follow to determine further underlying causes contributing to the state of depression.
While the brainwave patterns of clinically depressed individuals actually alter within the first five days of training, it must be emphasized that this program is designed as a 16-Day Intensive Training Protocol with periodic follow-ups. The changes that occur encourage 'life-style' changes. Permanency (i.e. staying depression free) and /or continued evolution with regard to progress in personal fulfillment and accomplishment are dependent on the individual's ability and willingness to accept the things that can not be changed, find the courage to change the perceptions and habits they can change, and to "stay-the-course" with their follow-ups and " integrated-protocols" which includes nutrition.

NEUROFEEDBACK: EEG Biofeedback or Neurofeedback is a learning strategy that
enables a person to alter their brainwaves. When information about a person's
own brainwave characteristics is made available to them in a real-time
computer display with sound, he/she can learn to change them. You can
think of it as exercise for the brain. The feedback information, like a dancer's
reflection in a studio mirror, provides an opportunity for the development of
skills that were previously unavailable to the conscious mind. Increased
cerebral blood flow occurs which enhances brain functioning and raises
cognitive abilities. This interactive methodology is known as
HISTORY OF BIOFEEDBACK: EEG Biofeedback or Neurofeedback, otherwise known as
brainwave training, has come a long way since the 1970's when NASA Astronauts
used the technology in their training programs between
