Attention & Focus
Attention is the ability to focus on a particular subject while disregarding distractions. Our concentration is constantly interrupted by both internal and external interferences. How well we focus our attention and minimize distractions could be a determining factor of our overall well-being.
Understanding the process of attentiveness helps identify distractions that constantly compete for our attention. The brain’s ability to focus on a specific task is determined by how neurons communicate. For more effective communication, people often speak louder and with greater clarity. This concept is the same for neurons as they exchange messages. Neurons correspond more intensely with each other when we are attentive and focused.
Research has shown that the brain synchronizes activity across specific regions, which enables the ability to concentrate. These distinct brain areas create a clear line of communication by utilizing the same frequency. Research also found these certain areas adjust their intensity levels to correspond with each other when introduced to a stimulus. The brain areas not linked with attention showed no changes in activity levels.
Brain Wave Frequencies
Brain waves are rhythmic, repetitive patterns of electrical voltages that display neural activity. There are five different waveforms Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta. Beta frequencies are associated with being in an awakened state. It is the active mental condition most people are in throughout their day. Insufficient Beta activity can cause mental health disorders, inattentiveness, and insomnia. Stimulating beta activity can improve emotional stability, energy levels, attentiveness, and concentration.
Research has shown that elevated neuronal synchrony in the Alpha range relates to inattention and distraction. In contrast, neuronal synchrony in the Gamma range increases attention and focus on something specific. Theta brainwaves are associated with light rest or extreme relaxation. Delta frequencies are the slowest brain waves measured and are connected to deep sleep.
Traumatic events, such as surgery, tumors, chemotherapy, physical injury, and emotional trauma, cause neurons to develop disorganized frequencies and slower oscillation movements leading to adverse brain functioning. These neuronal changes often develop into neurological and mental health disorders which are commonly treated with medication. However, certain medicines are addictive, produce harmful side effects, and cannot be directed to specific brain areas. Additionally, drugs do not cure the source of the problem, leaving patients to continue using medication treatments indefinitely. The Brain Frequency™ AI system offers an alternative solution. Our system targets specific impacted area(s) of the brain to promote optimal neuronal function without medication. Furthermore, patients reported experiencing positive effects after minimal Brain Frequency™ treatments.
How can Brain Frequency™help?
The Brain Frequency™ AI system is an innovative therapeutic approach to improving brain health and wellness. We use proprietary science-based technology to promote optimal brain functioning across mental, emotional, physical, and social domains. Our diagnostic technology and individualized treatment protocols help decrease or eliminate trauma-related symptoms and various mental health disorders.
The Brain Frequency™ 3 Step Treatment Process consists of; first, performing a Baseline EEG and completing Psychometric Assessments; second, conducting a Brain Frequency Consultation; and third, Initiating Treatment.
An Electroencephalogram (EEG) analyzes brain waves and produces a brain map identifying current and optimal frequencies in 19 areas of the brain. Based on the individualized brain map, Brain Frequency™ will determine possible diagnoses of various mental health disorders or brain trauma for the provider to consider during treatment. Brain Frequency™ AI software provides clinicians with an "Approval Ready" treatment plan using personalized protocols based on each patient's needs.
Those needing to improve attention and focus cognition can efficiently and effectively treat their symptoms using the Brain Frequency™ AI system. Our innovative system drastically reduces the time needed to properly diagnose and construct treatment plans leading to a faster recovery and greater quality of life.
