Lyme disease can cause the fight-flight stress response system of the central nervous system to overreact. This can cause symptoms like agitation, brain fog, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. We know that neurofeedback has a calming and centering effect on the central nervous system with effects directly opposite the Lyme’s Disease symptoms. People who use neurofeedback report feeling more calm, clear and focused, and sleeping better.
People suffering from Lyme Disease who have used NeurOptimal Neurofeedback have reported:
- more energy
- better sleep
- better more positive attitude
- higher immune system
- less agitation
- clearer mind, less brain fog
This article, written by the co-founder of NeurOptimal Neurofeedback, Valdeane W. Brown, states “Neurofeedback has generated enormous interest recently, especially in regards to ameliorating the effects of immune system involved disorders like Lyme Disease. Although neurofeedback itself does not mitigate the disease processes that are responsible for immune system involved disorders, it can be quite helpful at restoring functional levels in affected individuals. In particular, sleep disturbance, mood disturbance, and increased fatigue, as well as poor concentration and diminished attentional abilities, all show remarkable restoration with effective neurofeedback.

How many sessions are needed?
While we can never know how any particular brain will respond to the neurofeedback, we have some statistics that can give you an idea of what others have experienced. In the 2014 survey of NeurOptimal Neurofeedback trainers, they reported that between 10-20 sessions were needed for people to see a more than 40% improvement. We use 40% improvement as the benchmark for these statistics because that is the standard as being the best result that can be expected from many drugs for many of the complaints evaluated.
Some quotes from the trainer survey:
For me the personal training with NeurOptimal® was a turning point in my life! Step by step it slowly lead me out of a miserable chronic Lyme condition to a stable and long lasting level of significantly increased wellbeing! It’s simply an amazing brain training tool! NeurOptimal® really promotes reliable “optimal performance”! It helps us to activate our true potential!
A family friend recommended NeurOptimal® for my son after witnessing a public “fit”. My son was diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder and had a diagnosis of possible Asperger’s Syndrome. After doing NeurOptimal® with that provider for almost a year his symptoms greatly improved. I am dealing with Lyme Disease and the symptoms that accompany that disease and benefited greatly from NeurOptimal®.
