The Future of Mental Health Treatment

What is VCAT?

The world of psychology and mental health is constantly changing. The future of mental health now focuses more on an objective way of assessing and treating psychological disorders. It is more about how brain’s functioning system including neurons, neurotransmitters, and certain brain waves working together to enable the way we think, behave, move, feel, and maintain homeostasis. We use the state of art integrated technology in Neurofeedback, a combination of wireless Electroencephalogram (EEG), brain mapping, and our unique and exceptional neuropathway therapy “Visual Concentration Attention Therapy (VCAT)” to measure, record and analyze the electrical activity in the brain. VCAT is developed and maintained by Dr. Nader Siahdohoni. VCAT as a neuropathway therapy interacts directly with the overall brain’s functioning system through neurocognitive stimulation within visual Field (VF) to the brain’s malfunctioning areas (over active, under active, non-active) to Balance (enhancing and balancing Brain’s chemical imbalance and the firing rate of its neurons-brain waves) increase plasticity (creating a healthy mental environment throughout the brain-increasing blood flow-nutrition and oxygen), rejuvenate (new pathways and stronger neurons), and regulating (homeostasis- brain’s ability to maintain its new healthy and enhanced neuro-functioning system). It is the most precise treatment plan for improving symptoms of anxiety, depression, addictions, schizophrenia, ADHD, dementia, pre-Alzheimer’s, seizures, and so forth. VCAT is safe, fast, and has the major benefit of being drug-free.

Mental & Psychological Disorders

A mental illness is a disease that causes mild to severe disturbances in thought and/or behavior, resulting in an inability to cope with life’s ordinary demands and routines.

The Brain & Mental Illness

Most scientists believe that mental illnesses result from problems with the communication between neurons in the brain. For example, the level of the neurotransmitter serotonin is lower in individuals who have depression.

The Brain & Chemical Imbalance

Over the years, advances in brain imaging, neurology and research have shown a link between mental health and the chemical imbalance (the level of neurotransmitters) in the brain.

Understanding PTSD

Stress results in acute and chronic changes in neurochemical systems and specific brain regions, which result in long-term changes in brain “circuits,” involved in the stress response. Brain regions that are felt to play an important role in PTSD include hippocampus, amygdala, and medial prefrontal cortex. Learn more about how VCAT can help treat PTSD.

Addiction & Alcoholism

Substance use disorder and other co-occurring mental illnesses benefit greatly from the VCAT Neurotherapy. Addiction damages the brain and causes a severe chemical imbalance. When a person enters recovery the chemical imbalance many times can lead to chronic relapse. With the VCAT brain mapping, we are able to treat addiction individually.

Eating Disorders & The Brain

There is increasing evidence that chemical abnormalities within the brain make some people more vulnerable to eating disorders. The two chemicals involved are suggested to be dopamine and serotonin. Both chemicals are closely tied to appetite, mood, and impulse control, which are all altered in people with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.

The Anatomy of Your Brain

The following visualization assists in helping us map the different areas of the brain. When we utilize VCAT for any mental disorder or addiction we look to how the brain is being affected in various areas.

Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment with VCAT

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. Take a closer look and the reality of your mental and behavioral symptoms. Your brain is a balanced, harmonized and bonded universe of approximately 100 billion of neurons functioning and processing within connective myelinated tissues of grey and white matter to keep you connected to your environment mentally, cognitively, and physically. Continues strikes or direct impact to the head causes permanent damage to these tissues, which over time leading to neural network deterioration and dysfunction. Individuals with such brain injuries may experience depressive mood, anxiousness, irritability, memory issues or loss, difficulty concentrating, headaches, dizziness or loss of balance, fatigue or drowsiness, trouble speaking, and loss of coordination or impaired motor skills including early Alzheimer’s and or Parkinson’s disease.
