Quoted From: https://salempsychdoc.com/neurofeedback

"Learn to relax the mind and increase resilient and flexible brain functioning through neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback. A more resilient brain typically helps a person to live in a relaxed, but alert state without being swamped by agitation, malaise, nervousness, or a foggy, distractible, and ruminating mind. Resiliency helps one cope better with emotional storms, physical pain, sleep impairment, learning challenges, and the demands of living. One can face life"s demands without being knocked off center. One can live more fully and comfortably within one"s own skin and be more effective in living. One can become more cool under pressure, concentrate better in the midst of distraction, change one"s plans to fit the occasion, and problem solve better under difficult circumstances. Worry is one example of a condition, which can throw off the central nervous system and lead to its exhaustion. Remember the "fight or flight response". In the case of worry, the nervous system gets engaged in multiple "false alarms", setting off the body's activating fight or flight response. The brain orients to environmental changes and overreacts to them as if they were life threatening. This can trigger a non-productive or "stuck" EEG pattern, which wastes energy and leads to exhaustion. People can also get overloaded by trauma or an accumulation of too many life demands. The CNS can also get stuck in inefficient patterns by genetic predisposition, or by becoming sensitized or worn down by physical pain, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, injury, alcohol/drugs, and medications."
