BrainBehaviorReset™ Treatment Summary
Jordan is a 8-year old girl with a history of separation anxiety and anxiety-related stomach aches and sleep problems.
Her birth was positive for fetal distress due to the cord wrapped around her neck. She was given oxygen at birth and no reported issues were noted by her parents. Jordan had colic as a baby, which lessened at about eight months of age. Jordan had significant separation anxiety and could only stay with her mother and father. She eventually could stay with her grandmother but cried upon drop off until she was almost 3 years old.
Her parents tried pre-school at age three and four but Jordon cried uncontrollably for hours so they pulled her out. Jordan went to preschool at age 5 and after a tearful first couple of days, did very well. She maimed at the same private school kindergarten.
She transitioned to first grade in a public school and did well. Her parents had a school meeting the year before and then requested a consistent but calm teacher and that is exactly the kind of teacher Jordan had.
Signs of anxiety at home were consistent throughout her early years with excessive questioning, anticipatory anxiety, and resistance to trying new things evidenced. Belly aches and trouble getting to sleep waxed and waned depending on what was going on in her life.
At age 8, her parents were concerned about how much reassurance Jordan displayed and how it was holding her back in life. Jordan’s mom was especially concerned due to her own lifelong anxiety and didn’t want Jordan to follow the same path of medication after medication without much relief. She also wanted Jordan to find a way to healthily manage her own worries without relying so much on her mom and dad. That is when they sought support from my BrainBehaviorReset™ Program.
Her QEEG Brain Map showed hyper brain communication, which is common with those with ruminating, negative thoughts that are hard to turn off. She also displayed a lot of muscle tension related to stress.
Jordan’s nervous system was stuck in Sympathetic dominant “rev state” and the focus of her program was on calming her brain first through a combination of neurofeedback, PEMF, dietary changes, dietary supplements, gut support, and parent coaching.
Jordan completed 38 sessions of neurofeedback, 11 sessions of PEMF combined with biofeedback, and parent coaching. Jordan’s hyperconnectivity completely normalized.
Behaviorally, Jordan’s sleep and stomach aches improved first. Then, her need for reassurance and resistance for new activities began to subside. An unexpected improvement was that Jordan became more affectionate with her parents and grandparents.
Her parents were coached in how to teach Jordan to cope with her worries and manage her behavioral resistance. With Jordan being calm, she was able to do the work in therapy and tolerate being uncomfortable.
