Negative moods and how it affects you
If you have been struggling with negative moods, you’re not alone. More than 19 million adults suffer from negative moods. If you are feeling overwhelmed, worn down, fatigued, sad, isolated, foggy brained, or disconnected, these are classic signs and symptoms that accompany negative moods.
What can cause negative moods?
Research at Keck Imaging Labs at the University of Wisconsin shows that negative mood people experience a reduction of activity in the left side of the brain. This is the side responsible for engaging in positive moods. When the brainwaves are abnormal, your mood can become abnormal.
How Neurofeedback can help
Neurofeedback is a drug-free, non-invasive natural approach to negative moods. In dealing with negative moods many neurofeedback therapists place an electrode on the scalp over each side of the brain and train the individual to increase alpha brain waves on the right side while reducing it on the left. As the left side of the brain becomes more active, individuals begin to feel more positive in their moods. The abnormal brainwave activity diminishes over a period of training sessions improving brainwave patterns. When function is improved, mood is improved and outcomes are optimized
