Pledge received to help 5 local Veterans with PTSD/TBI

Braincore of the Lowcountry is offering a option for those suffering from PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury which is gaining attention across the globe. BrainCore Neurofeedback is a cutting edge technology which teaches one to retrain the brain to produce balanced brainwave patterns. A “matching donor” has pledged to assist with half the investment to provide for five of our local heroes to participate in the program this year.  Our approach is painless, drugless, non-invasive, has no harmful side effects and creates permanent change.

From 2002 to June 2014 over 364,000 people were treated for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). “Most of these people served in a war, but a traumatic event like assault, an accident or disaster can cause the disorder”, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Symptoms of PTSD cluster around four areas: reliving the events, avoiding situations that remind one of the events, negative changes in the individual and feeling keyed-up all the time. Currently there are two avenues of treatment – either several types of psychotherapy (counseling) or medications or a combination of both. Both can cause additional problems and are only partially helpful according to a recent article in the New York Times newspaper, “After PTSD, More Trauma”, Sunday, January 18, 2015.

According to Dianne Kosto, BCN-T, Owner of BrainCore of the Lowcountry “We offer a third option for those suffering from PTSD and TBI. Once accepted into our program, our clients are hooked-up to a computer with sensors. The computer detects proper patterns and will visually and audibly ‘reward’ the brain.

The brain learns how and when to produce certain brainwaves and new neural pathways are created. These changes are permanent after a series of sessions.  A typical PTSD client will need approximately 60-80 sessions, TBI can require more. Many of those who suffer from these disorders are unable to produce the income to support themselves and family and are in need of our help. We can and often do donate our services but in order to be able to continue to do so must have community support as well.  We are so excited to have this generous matching donor step up to give back to our Veterans!  Honor Our Heroes Foundation and Peaceful Henry’s Cigar Shop have raised funds to help as well.”

We are now seeking five Veterans in need to take advantage of this pledge and additional contributions for our donor to match.  We plan to publish the results in a “Study” format to further provide scientific support for Neurofeedback and PTSD/TBI. Contact Dianne Kosto at BrainCore.Dianne@gmail.com to contribute and to see if you or someone you know may qualify as a candidate to receive BrainCore Neurofeedback.
