In children, brain fog is associate with zoning out. We commonly see this in ADHD and autism cases. In adults, brain fog often take the form of having difficulty engaging in cognition, learning or memory. Examples of this include: forgetting names/dates/events, hearing someone speak but not understanding, difficulty staying on task, etc.
Various health challenges can lead to brain fog including the following (and more):
Brain maps are a 20-30 minute, non-invasive, computerized analysis of brain function. The electrical activity of the brain is associated with function of the brain. Brain maps allow for targeted management of a weak or unbalanced area of the brain. These multi-color maps show if any parts of the brain are outside the normal range.
There are several reasons to get a brain map. The top 10 reasons are as follows:
There are difficulties with focus and attention. Brain mapping has a long history of helping to recognize the symptoms of attention deficit disorder or ADD.
A person feels like they are in a fog or having problems with zoning out. Brain fog can happen in a child and in an adult.
Head trauma. Concussions. A history of contact sports. It is important to make sure the electrical activity of the brain is intact. Head trauma is associated with a long term loss of brain activity and function.
Cellular exercise in the form of PEMF can help your body heal itself. PEMF is short for pulsed electromagnetic fields.
For a few years now, I have been researching PEMF and how to incorporate it into my natural healing practice. With the myriad of different systems available, I wanted to ensure I chose a PEMF system that was robust, effective and made in the United States. After reviewing a few systems, I decided to use one that several of my colleagues found very effective and that stood the test of time in regards to durability and one that effectively improved my patients' healing ability. In my office, patients who have chronic knee pain, chronic shoulder pain/"frozen shoulder, neuropathy,fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), ADHD, and a host of other chronic and acute health challenges are benefitting from cellular exercise using our Pulse Centers XL Pro system.
What is an electromagnetic field? What are PEMFs?
"If you have ever held two magnets in your hands, tried to force them together, and felt a resistance between them, then you have experienced a magnetic field. The Earth has its own magnetic field, produced by fluxes in the molten metal in the core of the planet. The presence of this field is what causes a compass to rotate so that the ‘north pole’ of the compass points roughly north. A changing magnetic field (such as a magnetic field moving through a coil) generates an electric field (which would drive a current in the coil). This forms the basis for many electrical generators and motors. Similar to the way that a changing magnetic field can generate an electric field, a changing electric field generates a magnetic field. This is a natural activity of the universe. An electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by moving electrical charges. It affects the behavior of any other charged objects in the vicinity of the field.
PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields, which are widely used these days to improve circulation and cell metabolism. The body can become accustomed to nonmoving (or static) magnetic fields, which are generally unable to deeply penetrate the body. A pulsed electromagnetic field, however, is quite dynamic, is able to penetrate all the way through the body, and creates a cascade of effects within the body.
It is important to distinguish between the electromagnetic fields we use for therapeutic purposes, and other man-made electromagnetic fields from power lines, microwave ovens, cell phones, etc., which can cause damage to our bodies. The PEMF devices we recommend all produce safe, natural electromagnetic fields which are of lower frequency, and are complementary to the chemistry and functions of the body." 
What effectively sold me on PEMF (and the system we use) was the benefits I personally experienced using the cellular exercise device. Let me explain how PEMF may help you:
"You have over 75 Trillion cells in your body. Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things.They provide structure for the body,take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions.
Cellular exercise increases cellular membrane permeability. This allows better circulation of oxygen and nutrients into your cells. Additionally, PEMF helps eliminate carbon dioxide and waste products out of the cells.
What if I told you that doctors have discovered a breakthrough in treating patients who suffer with Fibromyalgia and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME)/chronic fatigue syndrome? Would you be open and willing to learn about what that breakthrough is? If the answer is YES, then it is from this space of openness and willingness where you will begin your healing journey.
In overcoming our health challenges, it is imperative that we approach our health from a radically new mindset. Essential in forming this new mindset is entertaining the notion that anything is possible when it comes to our health, and yes, YOU CAN heal yourself and thrive.
If you are suffering with fibromyalgia, chronic pain, anxiety, or ADD; science shows us you can get help, naturally, without drugs. Let me explain how.
When you have a weak muscle, you can exercise it to make it stronger, as long as the muscle is not permanently damaged. Of course you have to be specific in what muscle you want to target with exercise and how you perform the exercise. For example if your right bicep muscle is weak, you wouldn't perform abdominal crunches because the abdominal muscles have nothing to do with your biceps.
I am pleased to introduce neurofeedback to the Shelby Township area of Southeast Michigan. Also known as Brain Training, this groundbreaking approach incorporates state-of-the-art equipment with the expertise of our professionally trained staff. Neurofeedback is ideal for helping people who suffer with medical conditions such as:
"The tennis elbow pain I felt when you pushed on my forearm is gone! How does that work"? "The sharp stabbing pain that made me pause talking between each word is so much better two hours after the laser treatment". "Dr. J, I am not shuffling any longer, the plantar fascitis pain in my foot is virtrually gone after the laser treatment"! These words were music to my ears as patients experienced the benefits of the Multi-Wave Locked System on its first day of use.
