You probably heard “It’s the small things in life that matters.” In this case, the saying is doubly relevant. Firstly, relative to the powerful, small and sensitive portion of the brain, the hypothalamus and secondly, the very small quantities of specific food supplements that affect it.

The hypothalamus, a regulatory structure located at the base of the brain, is the control center for the master gland, the pituitary gland. Many important bodily functions owe their effectiveness to specific instructions from these two regulatory centers in the brain. These include changes in blood pressure, body temperature, weight regulation, fertility, insomnia, short stature and fluid retention.

The food supplements, primarily used to enhance the taste of food, are used only in very small but extremely powerful amounts. Their effectiveness in enhancing taste of food has a destructive effect on the very tiny control center, the hypothalamus. The following presentation by Dr. Blaylock provides a very important but useful explanation into this most compelling and harmful relationship between excitotoxins, brain function and bodily responses.

Alice (not her real name), an adult from Buckingham, suffered from intense anxiety that interfered with her life activities at home and socially.  She described herself as usually tense and nervous,  generally fearful of losing control, jumpy, hypervigilant, on edge and worrying excessively.  Because she was afraid of trying new things, she experienced trembling or shaking response whichmade her very self conscious.  Being uncomfortable in many social situations, she avoided public places. Life for Alice was very limiting.  Alice came for a free consultation for neurofeedback after learning about the program on the web.

Diagnosing brain activity in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is essential in developing interventions, meaningful treatments and positive outcomes.  This has been made easier with information from research using electroencephalograms (EEGs), a recording of the brain’s electrical signals.  Research, lead by Sophie Molkolm at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, identifies processing deficits as part of the problem with the ‘autistic brain.’ Malcolm’s studies have established a relationship between the severity of a child’s autism and deficits in processing of sensory information. 

Stanley, not his real name, is a businessman who struggled with managing the details of his business.  His ideas and his follow through were not always in balance, resulting in   missed opportunities.   Even though he was trying to study for an advanced program, his mind was not always in attendance and he was losing valuable time.  It was difficult to keep focused, manage appointments, business contacts, or the details of his paperwork. He felt like he was always playing catch-up.  If he was to be successful, he would have to be more mentally efficient. 

Louise (not her real name), an 8-year-old child from Bordentown, had difficulty with aggression, anxiety and interacting poorly with others.   She was unable to live at home with her siblings because of her extreme difficulty with behavioral and impulse controls. Being diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder, associated with early childhood trauma, there were significant behavioral concerns. Some of the behaviors she displayed include being easily distracted and fidgeting, lacking patience, getting in trouble frequently, having tantrums, defying rules, being excessively stubborn, angry, resentful, initiating fights, pushing others around and being physically cruel to others.
