Natural Effective Research-Proven Help for ADD, ADHD and Poor Memory

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Sep 04, 2012

ADHD Interactive Metronome resized 600Do you know what it means if you can interact with your intellectual self? It means you can start controlling your own perceptions, your own thinking, and your own neurological processes, your own planning, sequencing, decision-making etc. So, why is it important to have these abilities? It is important to have these abilities because without them, we can develop disorders such as ADD and ADHD and poor memory. When someone cannot interact with their intellectual self, do they need help? Well, if they want help, they can and should get help.  Therefore, we are glad to say that we have the safest option for you to defeat disorders such as ADD and ADHD.

First of all, it is important to understand the significance of the Interactive Metronome and why it came about. The Interactive Metronome (IM) was developed in the early 1990s and is used to help children with learning and developmental disorders as well as adult neuro rehabilitation patients. The purpose of the IM therapy is to improve the neurological processes of motor planning and sequencing which are central to human activity.  From the coordinated movements needed to walk, to the order of words in a sentence, planning and sequencing are critical to efficient human function. "The IM provides a structured, goal-oriented process that challenges you to synchronize a range of hand and foot exercises to a precise computer-generated reference tone heard through headphones. You will attempt to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor actions. A patented auditory-visual guidance system provides immediate feedback measured in milliseconds, and a score is provided" (source from Interactive Metronome Brochure) Overall, it is important to note that the Interactive Metronome (IM) is the only therapy tool that improves motor planning and sequencing by using neuro-sensory and neuro-motor exercises developed to improve the brain's inherent ability to repair or remodel itself through a process called neuroplasticity. 

However, the Interactive Metronome goes beyond improving our motor planning and sequencing abilities. For example, the human brain's efficiency and performance depend on the transitions of signals from one area of the brain to another. Findings in a recent study by Neal Alpiner, MD, "Functional MRI Study of the Effects of IM on Auditory-Motor Processing Networks", suggest that IM works by augmenting internal processing speed within the neuroaxis which includes the key regions of the brain- the cerebellum, prefrontal cortex, cingulate gyrus and basal ganglia. These parts of the brain are responsible for human timing as well as other day to day functions such as sustained attention, language formulation, motor coordination and balance.

Moreover, over the course of IM treatment, one can actually start to learn to focus for longer periods of time, increase physical endurance and stamina, filter out internal and external distractions, improve ability to monitor mental and physical actions as they are occurring, and improve coordinated performance.  Therefore, IM would be the perfect therapy option for those with Sensory Integration Disorder, ADD/ADHD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA), Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Non-verbal Learning Disorder, Balance Disorders, Limb Amputation, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

To conclude, the Interactive Metronome is a safe drug- free alternative to improving and/or defeating multiple problems related to the neuroaxis malfunctioning. Drugs should never be your first choice as drugs tend to only temporarily relieve the problem but most often do not stop the problem. For example, for ADD and ADHD disorders, there has been a whopping 250% increase in the use of Ritalin in the United States from 1990 to 1995. By 1997, Ritalin use has increased to a shocking 700%. What’s even more shocking is that out of the 11 million prescriptions doctors write for ADD and ADHD, 80% are concentrated on treating childhood ADHD and ADD. We have an alternative method to help you avoid the increasing use of drugs such as Ritalin that often does not bring lasting effects. That alternative is using the Interactive Metronome which will target the actual problem- your nervous system and how it is responding- and will bring you lasting effects.  The Interactive Metronome is a safe alternative to drugs and will help you and your loved ones defeat neurological malfunctions such as ADHD and ADD without any harmful effects. Come try our Interactive Metronome and experience a natural approach to interacting with your intellect without damaging it with drugs and lost promises. The Interactive Metronome will not label you with a disorder for life, but will lead you towards an improved life with the option of defeating your disorder completely.
