"During my service in the U.S. Army, I sustained multiple concussions and have since been diagnosed with PTSD. After neurofeedback, I have noticed improved mental abilities and fewer symptoms. What I like most is that the process is drug-free and easy to self-administer. Thank you!"- Howard H., Lieutenant Colonel (Retired), U.S. Army
“It feels like a miracle,” I said to Dr. Berman after about 10 sessions with him and all his gismos. “No, it's science,” he replied nonchalantly. Science or miracle, or both, I had experienced a profound shift in my sense of wellbeing. I was out of the tormenting, debilitating, and isolating, strangle hold of PTSD/Limbic System Dysfunction and its nightmarish symptomology that had plagued me for the past 3+ years. During those years, I had been experiencing unrelenting high anxiety which, almost daily, coursed through my body as well as my psyche no matter how much I willed it to be otherwise. So, to me, it was a miracle!
I had also been experiencing a constant feeling that “my brain was on fire,” (as I had told my doctors). I had great difficulty thinking or processing information. Smells, sounds, fast motion in my vicinity and other's upsets would send my body and hence, my feelings, into a state of fight-flight. I would then be thoroughly exhausted from containing it and attempting to calm it, to little or no avail. I was so internally “wired” and on alert that I could not relax or sleep well, let alone find pleasure in living. I was exhausted and just in survival mode most days. On the really bad days, all I could do was watch “my Three Sons” reruns in my room. (And I am not a TV fan at all!)
I had engaged in other treatments with only temporary and/or limited improvements. I began to wonder if this was going to be the norm for me from now on but, I kept hoping that wasn't so. I kept seeking and trying new modalities.
When I went to Dr. Berman, as always, I had hope in my heart but a voice in my head saying, “this will probably be like everything else I have tried...it might help a little but, I'll have my hopes dashed once again.” Dr. Berman started with a comprehensive QEEG. He then showed me where the issues were in my brain. Where I was stuck on high and where I was stuck on low. and, he said to me, “It is not your fault.” Those of you who can relate to my story know how much those four words meant to me.
Well, as you can guess, my hopes were not dashed once again. The horrible anxiety was dashed instead! I got me back in so many ways. Is there more to do? Absolutely yes. And, my body needs much attention to recover from being in the sympathetic state for so long.
But, I want to shout from the roof tops to anyone experiencing anxiety, PTSD, depression, cognitive difficulties...GO SEE DR. BERMAN! He has a big heart and so much expertise and knowledge, as well as sooo many gismos (different machines/treatments) that your chances of finding help are good.
Thank you so much Dr. Berman. I am so very grateful.
