Brain and Mental Health Services
Anxiety, depression, memory loss, PTSD…
Our brains control our bodies and our thoughts. The human brain is a highly contextual system of chemical and electrical activity with around 100 billion neurons that are constantly connecting and firing. Our brains are designed to function in a balanced, responsive state: to adapt to changes in our bodies and environments with relative ease.
But when something goes wrong with the brain, the whole body suffers. There are many conditions that can impact brain and mental health. Genetics, environmental exposure, severe illness, trauma, chronic stress, malnutrition and more can cause the brain to malfunction, sending the wrong signals.
In an ideal situation, the brain will self-correct and repair the imbalance. However, this often doesn’t happen. Instead, the neurons misfire and the body reacts to the incorrect signals.
Mental illnesses, stress disorders, and chronic sickness often result. Here at the Karlfeldt Center, we believe that the health of the mind and the soul are inextricably linked to physical health. As such, we treat the brain as well as the body, focusing on therapies that can assist the body in correcting mental imbalances as well as therapies that can heal dysfunctional neurons.
We offer a number of safe, gentle and results-oriented approaches to balance brainwaves, release negative emotions, reset imbalances, promote cellular healing and generally support our delicate mental and emotional balance.
Neurofeedback and Cold Laser Therapy - Clear Mind Center
Neurofeedback addresses problems of brain dysregulation, or imbalance. Neurofeedback monitors brain activity and trains the brain to function more efficiently and return to a balanced state.
Our in-house partner, Clear Mind Center of Idaho, provides expert neurofeedback and cold laser therapy to help reduce or improve symptoms resulting from neurological issues.
Also known as Brain Training, this groundbreaking approach incorporates state-of-the-art equipment with the expertise of our professionally trained staff.
Other Mental Health Treatments We Offer
Suppressed emotions can initiate physiological changes that often result in chronic diseases such as cancer. For example, the stress of not having your voice heard when you were young could manifest as a health disorder later on in life. These emotionally difficult events can even be passed on from parent to child. Applied Psycho-Neurobiology (APN) enables the practitioner to communicate with the subconscious to identify the unresolved emotion and its triggering event that led up to the dysfunction. The practitioner will then balance the dysfunction in regards to the emotionally difficult event allowing healing to begin.
Auriculotherapy works by stimulating the central nervous system through the cranial nerves and spinal nerves on the auricle (external ear). This stimulation results in neurotransmitters being stimulated within the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system. This stimulation of neurotransmitters modulates the pain and nerve function correcting dysfunctional signals sent to the affected organ or body part.
Autonomic Response Testing
Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a physical exam enhanced by biofeedback. The physician uses changes in muscle tone and resistance as indicators of how the autonomic nervous system responds to introduced stressors. This system is effective for most chronic and acute illnesses and is used in combination with other functional assessment tools to develop a restorative strategy.
Addressing the person as a whole to promote education, healing, and wellness on every level, Homeopathic Medicine is both safe and gentle. It works in a way that allows the body to restore itself. Homeopathy reviews every aspect of the patient's physical, medical, emotional, and mental history to determine which symptoms should be addressed most urgently, and which remedies will stimulate the correct healing response.
Naturopathic Medicine is an approach to health care that uses natural, non-toxic therapies to treat the whole person and to encourage the self-healing process. Combining the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science, Naturopathy seeks to combine therapies in a way that is uniquely suited to the optimal healing of each person.
Total Body Modification
Total Body Modification (TBM) combines the testing of systems, organs, and specific reflex points and then making corrections on the body that are connected with imbalances. Each of the body's functions are controlled by a biological "computer" within that typically just needs to be reset in order for the the body to operate at optimal function. Using structural and soft tissue manipulation to realign these systems, TBM is a non-invasive, holistic approach to total body wellness.
Flower Essence Therapy
Physical symptoms are the body’s way of communicating that something is out of balance. Flower Essence Therapy is a powerful way to correct that imbalance. As a result the body may stop communicating the symptom, such as pain.
