They thought he was the naughty kid in class, rolling around the floor, disrupting the other kids, and wouldn’t listen to the teacher, but now, you wouldn’t recognise him! He’s a different kid.
Adam, was diagnosed ADHD, which not only affected his school work and class mates, but extended to tantrums and arguments with his family. Adam struggled to put together a project from start to finish, was frustrated with not only school work, but doing art or reading for fun at home. He avoided doing anything creative because of the difficulty he had, often complaining of boredom, which only worsened his behaviour.
His parents decided that rather than putting him on medication, they would try something that might correct the problem. After running a brain scan, we found that one part of Adam’s brain was producing too much theta brain waves, which is most often produced when people are asleep, making it really hard to concentrate. At the same point, he produced too much beta, which is for concentration, but excessive levels caused him to want to focus on everything, making it impossible to focus on just one thing at a time. We also found that there were many parts of Adam’s brain that were not communicating with each other, which would make it hard for him to finish a task from beginning to end. The combination of these brain wave patterns made him constantly look around the room for more interesting things to do, and then not being able to concentrate, he would move on to the next thing he could find to distract him. This would go on and on for hours.
After running a few more tests, we found he had allergies, and some nutrient deficiencies caused by allergies. After improving these problems, which had a marked improvement on his behaviour at home, we then moved on to doing some computer brain training specifically designed for Adam’s unique brainwave pattern. We ran a computer test, which diagnoses ADHD and other learning difficulty problems, giving him a score, and sure enough, he scored well below the normal levels, indicating an attention problem. We then started him on the computer games that helped him change the imbalanced brainwave patterns. Within just 6 treatments, Adam began to notice improvements in his concentration, and then within 2 months, after running another attention test, his score had tripled – right outside of ADHD ranges! Adam and his parents were so excited with his improvements, it was just amazing to see. He has since won an award at school for topping the class in one of the assignments set, and has surprised us all with his new and impressive interest in reading. He has changed dramatically.
This type of therapy is not only used in children, but also adults who struggle to concentrate or have memory problems. If you would like more information on behaviour and learning difficulties, book a free half hour appointment to discuss your health concerns.
