EEG Biofeedback in the Treatment of Lyme Disease: A Case Study by Packard RC M.D. and Ham LP M.A.
EEG biofeedback (EBF) was evaluated in a 44-year old male with advanced Lyme disease and associated cognitive dysfunction. Reatment consisted of 40 sessions of EBF designed to suppress theta and enhance beta. Following treatment, the patient reported a 50% improvement overall in cognitive functioning. A modest improvement in theta, the theta/ beta ratio, and the P3 evoked potential were also observed. Results indicate a possible role for EBF in advanced stage Lyme disease.READ FULL TEXT (PDF)
Neurofeedback and Lyme’s Disease: A Clinical Application of the Five Phase Model of CNS Functional Transformation and Integration by Brown VW Ph.D.
This article presents a Five Phase Model of CNS Functional Transformation which has been developed through my work with the multiple modalities of neurofeedback treatment across a wide range of disorders. The rationale of this approach is described as well as its application to working with a particular individual suffering from Lyme’s disease. In addition some ideas will be presented regarding how the overall framework of the five phases can be used to triage and treat a range of disorders including ADD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, PTSD, and peak performance.
