Treating TBI, Concussions & Brain Fog With LENS

In cases of mild to moderate TBI & Post-concussion, and cases of Post-surgical or post-chemo brain fog, clarity, concentration, focus, memory, multi-tasking and energy can significantly and quickly improve with LENS treatments.

My body feels more relaxed. I feel mellow. It feels as though my entire body has undergone 'spell-check.'

TBI  / Post-concussion Syndrome

Traumatic Brain Injury and post-concussion syndrome sequellae are major health problems in the United States.

According to a 2002-2003 report from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) each year in the United States:

1. At least 1.4 million people sustain a TBI. Of these, about 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized, and 1.1 million are treated and released from an ED.

2. Approximately 475,000 TBIs occur among children ages 0 to 14 years; ED visits account for more than 90% of the TBIs in this age group.

3. Falls are the leading cause of TBI; rates are highest for children ages 0 to 4 years and for adults age 75 years or older.

Traumatic brain injury treatment and recoveryAnd, these numbers only include cases that are reported and diagnosed.

Most people are unaware that they have had a brain injury, myself included. I had several head plants in the snow while skiing that I just brushed off.

If you ever stood up into a beam and saw stars, banged your head in a fall or game, or sustained a whiplash injury then, in all likelihood, you had a brain injury.

Most post-TBI/post-concussion patients struggle in their lives with an array of cognitive and behavioral issues from; orientation-concentration-comprehension-reasoning-organizational-processing-problem solving, and memory problems to problems with motivation, agitation, stress overload, mood, fatigue, anger issues, insomnia, difficulty relating to others, etc.

Neuroscientists believe that when the brain experiences significant stress or trauma it develops neurological gridlock. (Think major intersection with the traffic light not working. LENS introduces brainwave feedback, in the form of an infinitesimal, imperceptible radio signal, that seems to nudge the brain out of the frozen, dysfunction neural gridlock to restore connectivity and communication within the brain itself. (Think of the same intersection with the traffic flowing smoothly as the traffic lights are restored.

Using a computer metaphor: LENS seems to allow the brain to reboot, to optimize its own function. And, if the hardware is optimized, the software runs better.

LENS works well as an adjunct to medications and talk therapy, or as an alternative to taking medications at all. Most of my patients, depending on severity, are experiencing improvement within six visits.

Post-surgical brain fog & Chemo Brain

It is important to understand that a healthy, regulated, balanced and functional brain produces the right brain wave, and associated neurochemistry, at the right time, in the right amount, for any given circumstance. A neurologically dysfunctional brain does not.

Generally speaking, some exposures can create neurological dysregulation which can create brain fog, defined by Taber’s Medical Dictionary as:

Clouding of consciousness, also known as mental fog, is a conventional medical term describing an abnormality in consciousness. The sufferer experiences a subjective sensation of mental clouding described as feeling “foggy.”

Exposures can include: anesthesia, chemotherapy, toxic chemical exposure, and drugs such as, antibiotics.

Symptoms may include:

      • Forgetting things that they usually have no trouble recalling (memory lapses)
      • Trouble concentrating or focusing: short attention span, spacing out
      • Trouble remembering details like names, dates, and sometimes larger events
      • Trouble multi-tasking
      • Taking longer to finish things (disorganized, slower thinking and processing)
      • Trouble remembering common words (unable to find the right words to finish a sentence)

Chemo Brain

Doctors have known for years that radiation treatment to the brain can cause thinking and memory problems. Recently, they have found that chemo is linked to some of the same kinds of problems, creating what is called; chemo brain. Research shows that some cancer drugs can cause certain kinds of changes in the brain.

Though the brain usually recovers over time, the sometimes vague yet distressing mental changes cancer patients notice are real, not imagined. They might last a short time, or they might go on for years. These changes can make people unable to go back to their school, work, or social activities, or make it so that it takes a lot of mental effort to do so. Chemo brain changes affect everyday life for many people, and more research is needed to help prevent and cope with them.”

LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System)

LENS neurofeedback helps in treatment of TBILENS help restore the brain to a healthy, regulated, balanced and functional brain that produces the right brain wave, and associated neurochemistry, at the right time, in the right amount, for any given circumstance.
