Marco developed seizures when he was 13 – he is now 25.
They were bad.
Not long after, I took him to do neurofeedback using a traditional system and qEEG. (Not NeurOptimal®). For 15 months Marco did not have any seizures because the neurofeedback was keeping his delta waves down. However, he started developing side effects – tics, tardive dyskinesia, muscle spasms etc. so we stopped. I felt that there was a huge margin of human error involved with the determining of the protocol for the neurofeedback which is essentially unavoidable. This was a major factor in my decision to buy a NeurOptimal® system, knowing that it is fully automated and does not require a human to make any decisions on behalf of the brain. I’m so glad I did!
He’s been seizure free since the summer of 2014 and has been doing NeurOptimal since Oct. of 2015. We did an EEG this year and his EEG was clear of any seizure activity so his Neurologist has been reducing his seizure medication. I attribute this normal EEG to NeurOptimal®. My son’s neurologist confirmed that a person may be asymptomatic of seizures (not be having seizures), but their EEG can still show seizure activity in the brain; so it was very amazing that my son did not show any seizure activity on his EEG considering his long history of intense and continuous seizure activity.
