Bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme moods swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression). When you are depressed you might feel sad or hopeless and lose interest in activities that normally make you feel pleasure. When your mood shifts in the other direction you will feel euphoric and full of energy almost like you are invincible. Mood shifts can happen weekly, monthly, or yearly.
These shifts in mood can cause a disruption in social activities such as school, work, and leisure time. There are different types of bipolar disorders and a proper diagnosis is necessary in order to get the person with the right treatment.
Neurofeedback can help improve sleep, mood swings, behavioral disruptions, and emotional instabilities. We will also provide some behavioral suggestions that can help aide with becoming more stable.
At the Brain & Wellness Center we focus on learning about your individual symptoms and issues, and helping to find comfortable solutions. We are able to balance the brain waves that affect mood with Neurofeedback. We will also discuss the medication that the person has been taking and provide any suggestions that we feel through research and experience have helped other clients. People who suffer with bipolar will have ongoing treatment through psychotherapy, neurofeedback and medication management in order to have a balanced lifestyle.
