Seminar to focus on childhood conditions

Special to The Log

Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center of Destin will hold a free seminar at 6 p.m. May 20 at the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce in Regatta Commons.

This free seminar will focus on the benefits BrainCore Therapy can have on childhood conditions such as ADD/ADHD, autism, Aspergers, learning disorders, anxiety and depression. The informal seminar will include light refreshments and an open forum for guests to learn about how BrainCore Therapy works, and how it can help their child or loved one.

Following the seminar, guests are invited to join Dr. Shawna Hogan at her office for a live demonstration of BrainCore Therapy. Space is limited, so those interested in attending should call Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center at 850-424-7856 to reserve a space.

An independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils will also speak briefly on the benefit of natural oils for families and personal use. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Guests will also have the opportunity to be evaluated by a Zyto Scanner, a machine that determines which oils would be beneficial for the individual based on the outputs of their body. The scanning is appropriate for both children and adults, as the process is completely painless and non-invasive.

In addition to addressing childhood conditions, neurofeedback is also used to address the symptoms associated with a wide range of other neurological conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), insomnia, fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic pain and more.

The goal of neurofeedback is to transform an unhealthy, dysregulated brainwave pattern into a normal, healthy, organized pattern. In doing so, the brain becomes more stable and is able to operate optimally and efficiently. The results are permanent and unlike medication, there are no side effects. Neurofeedback therapy is safe, non-invasive and appropriate for people of all ages. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration recognizes that neurofeedback has never produced a serious side effect since it was first discovered over 40 years ago. In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatrics raised the level of efficacy to level 1, the same level of efficacy as prescription medication for treatment of symptoms associated with ADHD.
