Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, headaches, lack of focus, or chronic pain? If you answered yes, you might be surprised to learn that one therapy has the potential to address all of these issues. It’s called neurofeedback – a gentle, non-invasive brain therapy designed to optimize your neurological potential so you can meet life head-on.
Over the last 20 years, I have practiced and studied alongside a brilliant, caring, and visionary group of clinicians and scientists assembled at the Institute for Functional Medicine. This organization birthed the term “Functional Medicine” over 30 years ago to describe a heuristic of applied systems-biology medicine and root-cause-analysis in clinical care. It is a beautiful way to practice.
There is a pretty big chance that you have heard about inflammation and with good reason! It is being studied for its connections to many different chronic diseases. There is a big part you can play in preventing inflammation in your body.
Neurofeedback is the process of training the brain to be more electrically efficient so that it can function at a higher level. Donald Hebb, PhD stated, "Neurons that fire together wire together."
The job of an MD is to ask (and answer) the questions, "What diagnosis does this person have?" and "What is the appropriate treatment?" These are important questions and have guided medical care for a long time.
This one statement sums up how Dr. David Haase approaches his clinical practice. Dr. Haase is a passionate expert when it comes to optimizing brain health with a mind-body approach, grounded in science.
What is Stress? By definition: “Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand.” This definition might be a little vague, but everyone knows what it feels like to be stressed.
Do you love BBQs but feel like they are a hard place to be when trying to make healthy choices? You are not alone. Most BBQs are full of processed meats, fried chips, sugary desserts, and high-fat side salads. So you may be wondering how you can still enjoy this popular event without compromising your health goals...
Health Begins in the Gut: What is the Gut Microbiome? The human gut microbiome contains around 100 trillion microbes. There are only about 10 trillion human cells in the body. That means that approximately 90% of the cells in your body are actually non-human organisms living in your gut.
Functional medicine is not really a specialty. It’s an updated way of organizing medical information and practicing medicine. It enables those clinicians that are trained in its methods to understand each individual patient as a complex whole and find the underlying causes of disease and dysfunction.
