Are you still struggling as we transition to the next chapter of this pandemic era? What happens when positive thinking, gratitude practices, talk therapy, or Zooming/Facetime with family and friends just aren’t cutting it?
You are not alone. What are your next options? Continue reading if you feel like you could use a bit more “normal” in your life right now…
Early on in the COVID-19 social distancing experiment, I spoke with a colleague of mine. He is a psychiatrist with Ivy League medical training. He told me that we are collectively experiencing “global PTSD.” Hmmmm… global Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. “That resonates,” I thought to myself at the time. Nearly two years later it seems more true than ever.
So many people report feeling more irritable, forgetful and exhausted. It’s important to have a general sense of what is happening “under the hood” in our brains and bodies when it comes to anxiety, panic, PTSD, and the general destabilization we are living through. With this understanding, we can begin the process of GROWING from our collective experience.
You see, our drive for certainty and safety is hardwired into our neurobiology. When we don’t have them, our nervous systems can go haywire. The longer the “haywire” goes on the more damaging it may become for the nervous system. It’s sort of like a fire that isn’t going out. This process impacts not only nerves, but our hormones, gastrointestinal systems, and even immune system function.
As we strive to grow and move forward – in our collective memory – and seek a return to social exploration, work, and play in our new world, Kemper Cognitive Wellness offers a 21st-century antidote for healing. We are using the judicious application of “transformational technologies” in our offices to re-balance disrupted nervous systems.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of anxiety, depression, or mental exhaustion, you may consider the Brain Brightening Program at Kemper Cognitive Wellness:
- persistent anxiousness, panic, or worry of harm to yourself or loved ones
- brain fog or difficulty concentrating
- a tendency for catastrophic feelings
- insomnia or the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep
- lower energy especially if accompanied by appetite changes
- persistent negative thinking
- restlessness or increased muscle tension
- increase irritability
- the world around you seems surreal or you feel detached from reality
The Brain Brightening Program is a series of 6-10 neurostimulation sessions, using low energy transcranial stimulation to foster an increased state of neuroplasticity in the brain and soothe an overactive nervous system. Participants complete targeted assessments, receive a series of 45-minute treatments, along with personalized recommendations for lifestyle enhancements and supplement supports to improve low mood, anxiety and depression symptoms. The best results include commitment to healthy lifestyle combined with the Brain Brightening sessions over the course of 3-4 weeks.
This exciting offering is available in packages ranging from $599-$849. Adults and children 16 years of age and older are eligible. For more information, call our office at 216/337-1400 x101.
You can think of these transformational technologies as physical therapy for your brain. And they work! People report having much more regulation over their huge, and previously uncontrollable, range of emotions. Others report feeling less susceptible to the whims of the news of the day, and the frightening thoughts plaguing them. Yet others report improved sleep, elevations of mood, clearer thinking, improved attention and memory.
Our approach at Kemper Cognitive Wellness is to look beyond a pill and use technology, and other evidence-informed tools, to help solve the failure of the medication-only approach to mental and cognitive well-being. A Scientific Wellness approach can help you. Partner with us in your transformation – we want to help you transform this traumatic period into one of growth.
Call Kemper Cognitive Wellness at 216/337-1400 x101 to schedule an appointment for the Brain Brightening Program. You may see positive results after just 6-10 sessions of neurostimulation.
Brain Brightening Testimonial
“The neurostimulations treatments literally made me more mindful… they allowed me to self regulate. Even though I still sometimes have the chest pain that comes with my anxiety, the neurostimulation treatments with Kemper Cognitive Wellness seem to be allowing ‘me’ to tell my brain to breath and calm down. The pain doesn’t bother me as much because I have more control over my mind to influence my own situation. There is much less suffering. Now when I feel the anxiety rising from my chest and throat I can pause it and my brain has the option to push it back down into my body where I can sit with it and process it.” -Shayne, 36
