These hacks should work well, but you may still find you have lingering sleep problems, no matter how hard you try.
At our Dubai clinic, we specialize in providing our ADHD patients with a permanent solution to their sleep problems. We use neurofeedback therapy, which is a medication-free, non-invasive approach. It tackles many other ADHD symptoms as well as sleep problems.
What is neurofeedback therapy?
Neurofeedback therapy works through using an EEG to monitor your brainwaves whilst you sit comfortably, watching a favorite show.
We then give feedback: every time your brain does something right, it is rewarded by a clearer picture and sound. Over time, this trains your brain to focus better, and for longer.
A patient’s exact course of treatment is set following an assessment that highlights their brain’s existing strengths and weaknesses.
After a series of sessions, often around 20, ADHD patients find that their symptoms reduce dramatically. They are less likely to suffer from inattentiveness or distraction. Better sleep is also a key benefit.
ADHD medication may improve symptoms, but it is typical that once a patient stops taking medication, the symptoms return. This is not the case with neurofeedback for ADHD. After a six-month follow-up, we can still see the positive results.
ADHD-related sleep problems can take a while to resolve, but patience is always rewarded. To make an immediate start, begin following the tips for better sleep habits and begin looking into neurofeedback therapy near you. The sooner you start, the sooner good sleep will come to you.
Dr. Upasana Gala is the founder and CEO of Evolve Brain Training, an award-winning neurofeedback-centered institute that focuses on using non-invasive brain training techniques to maximize the brain’s true potential.
Earning a doctorate in Neuroscience from the revered Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Gala has spent over a decade trying to unravel the way neurochemical and neurophysiological changes in the brain affect the way we interact with the world.
Her goal is to share her knowledge, encourage others to tap into and expand their brain’s capabilities, and dispel any myths surrounding our most complex organ.
