Hi Scott,

Neurofeedback is used to treat depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, social anxiety, addictions, insomnia, schizophrenia, autism, eating disorders, epilepsy.

When I started doing neurofeedback, I'd been ruminating about a former girlfriend many times a day for over a year. After about ten neurofeedback sessions, I was surprised to realize that I was rarely thinking about my former girlfriend anymore.

Neurofeedback helped to lessen my anxiety. For years, whenever I went to a restaurant or bar, I would tear up my paper napkin into little bits. I hated this habit, and tried many times to stop it, but I couldn't. (After Heath Ledger's death, I read that he had this same habit.) I haven't done this since trying neurofeedback.

I used to feel extremely self-conscious whenever I was in a public place -- the mall, the grocery store, Walmart, walking down a busy street, sitting in a movie theater -- until the lights went down. Neurofeedback wiped this out.

A wonderful book about neurofeedback is A Symphony in the Brain by Jim Robbins.

There are several thousand neurofeedback clinicians in the US, practicing a number of different protocols. Some of the newer protocols, which I haven't tried, are Infra-low Frequency (ILF) neurofeedback and Infra-slow Fluctuation (ISF) training.

The neurofeedback clinician I admire most of all is Peter Van Deusen. Through serendipity, he developed what he calls Whole-Brain Training.

Van Deusen has taught his training techniques to over 400 neurofeedback clinicians.
