“When I was 14-years old, shortly after I tried out for the Junior Olympics in downhill skiing, I noticed a twitch in my left arm. The seizures accelerated and became uncontrollable, despite excellent medical attention, including surgery.
My treatment at Advanced Neurotherapy, when I was 24, stabilized my condition for the first time in ten years, allowing me to read for a few hours at a time, walk without falling, and make plans for my wedding.”
David*, young adult, came to Advanced Neurotherapy post surgery for a seizure disorder, which left him with reduced functioning on his left side and continued seizure episodes.
“In many respects, parenting is getting easier. There is a loss of tension in her face. She is more relaxed and that’s a nice thing to see. She is so much better in the social world.”
“I do not think this is the Concerta. Concerta helps you attend to cues but I don’t think it has much impact on emotional volatility. The other day a friend of hers was practicing karate kicks and aimed a karate kick at her tummy and she connected. In months past, Allyson would have gotten up screaming, arms across the chest and screamed, ‘You did that on purpose!’ This time she got up. The girl said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry.’ The girl took her to the teacher and told the teacher what happened about her tummy hurting. Six months ago she would have had a tantrum and not been able to function in a learning environment for the rest of the day.
She is much better at letting go of the little insults that happen every day. We had gone to the pool. A boy was swimming and she swam over to him trying to engage him in swimming with her. He wasn’t interested. In the past she would have been obnoxious to get his attention. Instead some other girls came over and they ended up doing the swimming in circles thing. She is much more attentive and responsive to the social universe.”

“My Lyme had destroyed my short-term memory and my ability to communicate coherently. I would blend my words, or not be able to find the word I wanted, or just not be able to get the words out of my mouth. I always sounded angry because I was literally forcing the words off my tongue. And my memory – everything had to be written down for me as I would forget everything right away. It was like I could not keep anything in my head – even mid-sentence I would have no idea what either the person I was speaking with or I had been speaking about, or even which one of us had been doing the speaking.
Neurotherapy changed all that. I got my memory and my language back! My staff can’t believe how on top of everything I am and ask me how it is I don’t forget anything! Not only that, my language is such that I am not only able to communicate verbally again, but my writing is better than ever, and I’m able to read again – something that I also lost as a result of my Lyme.”
“I don’t even want to think about where I would have been right now without Dr. Ross and neurotherapy!”

“I have taken medication to control my seizures for the past 30 years. While effective, the medication took so much out of me that it was difficult to stay productive, stay employed, and lead a full life. I just did not have the energy to do the things I knew I had to do.”
“With neurofeedback, along with other alternative treatments, I have reduced my medication by 90% and regained employment. I am now more energetic and more involved with my entire world.”
Larry*, age 30, out of work for 10 years due to epilepsy. As a result of neurofeedback, he has been able to reduce his medication by 90% and he has returned to full employment.
“I have no doubt that the treatment [my son] received at Advanced Neurotherapy is in part responsible for my son regaining his active life back.”
“My son Jerry was beaten down by 3 years of suffering with a half dozen symptoms, his life severely circumscribed by his sickness. To cope, he was on a kind of auto pilot of limited activity and behavior.
When he started at Advanced Neurotherapy, it was the only treatment of any kind that he was receiving. After a number of visits, I can only describe his initial response as being a “waking up”, a break out of his auto pilot existence.
It was not all positive, it also meant confronting the bleakness of his 3 years of pain. But it was the beginning of a dramatic improvement in combination with additional therapies that were undertaken. At this writing the story is not yet finished. But I have no doubt that the treatment received at Advanced Neurotherapy is in part responsible for my son regaining his active life back.”
