What is Neuroplasticity? How does your Brain Work? How can you Rewire Your Brain?

NEUROPLASTICITY

I’m often asked, what the heck is a Neuroplastician?
What do you really do?
How does the Brain Work?
How can you help people?
Is there hope for my brain?

THE GAME CHANGER NEUROPLASTICIAN

What is Neuroplasticity?

Neuroplasticity is the property of the brain that allows the brain to change its structure and its function in response to activity and mental experience (including sensing, perceiving, motor movement, mental rehearsal, imagining, thinking, trance, meditation, Neurolinguistic Programming, hypnosis, focused awareness, Qigong, exercise etc.).

As well external energetic stimulation and modulation (electrical, magnetic, light, sound, oxygen) can also change the function and structure of the brain to turn on brain circuits that activate mental processes. For example, I can used PEMF to activate and entrain executive function and motor networks in the brain, and thereby make the client feel “more motivated” and “action-oriented.” Activating and creating plastic change in your brain’s circuitry, alters your mental experience. Moreover, by using #NLP and hypnosis, in addition to external stimulation, I can simultaneously activate brain and mental circuits, re-wire the existing brain circuits, activate dormant brain circuits and build new brain circuits.

“Neuroplastician”: Scientists and clinicians at the forefront of discovering and explaining the laws and uses of neuroplasticity.

YOUR BRAIN

1. YOUR BRAIN IS LIKE AN ANTENNA: Your brain constantly receives and transmits energies, and converts them into electricity which produces your stream of thoughts, activities, behaviours. However, unlike your radio which is a machine, and fixed, your brain is a dynamic transducer which shapes and is constantly being shaped by external and internal experience. Mental experience can switch certain genes ON or OFF!!!

2. Sensing, perceiving, thinking, motor activity all occur HOLISTICALLY and simultaneously in the brain. The brain is a COMPLEX DYNAMIC ORGAN that uses different assemblies of brain regions to perform specific tasks. Moreover, each individual uses different neurocortical pathways to perform specific tasks like reading, memory, walking etc.

3. MUSICAL ORCHESTRA – imagine each of your brain regions as different players in a band, which play their instruments at a certain tempo, tone, volume, rhythm which in unison produce the “song” or “consciousness” you experience. Now even if one brain region is damaged, other players, other brain regions can learn to take over the functions lost.

4. BRAIN DIVISION – Right Brain processes Novelty experiences the world Holistically in Context. The Left Brain isolates and focuses on parts, categorizations, routine thoughts, behaviours.

5. COMPLEX-NONLINEAR UNIFIED BRAIN.

Localizationism, the idea of “one function, one location” was born based on observations that when particular brain regions were damaged mental functions were lost. It was assumed that the mental functions were processed only in those particular locations in the brain. For example, speech in Broca’s area.

There is a tendency for certain cortical areas to process certain mental functions.

Rather than “one function, one location” particular brain regions are involved in modulating particular functions. A cable wire going into a television is involved in producing T.V. show that you watch, in that, if the wire is cut you won’t get the T.V channel. But you wouldn’t say that the wire itself produces the Television Show. Rather the wire is part of a unified circuit, that includes, the satellite, television, digital cable box, electricity source, that together produces the Television show you watch. In the same way specific brain regions are part of an assembled brain circuit that functioning together produces specific abilities – speech, memory, executive function etc. Now if that part is damaged or stops working, you may temporarily lose the mental ability such as speech, until you train other brain regions to integrate into the circuit to perform the lost ability. Thus, creating neuroplastic change in the brain.

CORE PRINCIPLES OF BRAIN FUNCTION: 

1. “Neurons that fire together, wire together.” Thoughts, feelings, behaviours that are activated simultaneously become wired together in the brain. Ex: if every time you get a biological craving and/or are stressed and you drink wine, or smoke cigarettes the wine/cigarettes will become neuro-associated with the stressful thoughts & feelings.

2. “Neurons out of sync, fail to link” – speech, memory, learning problems are often caused by lack of synchrony somewhere in the neural assembly. Ex: Visual and Motor cortex dis-connection for memory, and reading, and hyperconnection of auditory cortex, leaving a dyslexic child trying to “sound out” the words every time which is unreliable, especially for a language like English. Synchronize optimal neuronal assemblies to perform the task at hand. For example, a good memory requires strong visualization skills & synesthesia.

3. Use it or Lose it!!!

4. Competitive Plasticity – in the brain its “WINNER TAKES ALL”. Brain circuits are constantly competing for real estate in the brain. Brain circuits that are more frequently activated than other circuits, will become strengthened and expand their brain maps while the others weakened, and thus be more easily activated in the future.

Most people practice worrying, doubting, procrastination, depression, anxiety, fear so frequently that their brain plastically becomes better and better at these things and the brain maps for those mental processes become stronger, faster, more easily activated. Flip the switch and start to use brain plasticity to your advantage …

Stay tuned for upcoming #BRAINPOWERBREAKTHROUGH books with everything you need to know about how your brain works and the science of neuroplasticity, and how you can use your brain to control your state, emotions, behaviours and create lasting changes in your life.

Why haven’t you heard about neuroplasticity? 
1. Belief that the brain is an unchanging machine, made up of genetically hardwired circuits that could not change. This fails to integrate all the breakthroughs in epigenetics. Technologies like fMRI and QEEG Brain Mapping can show functional and anatomical changes in brain function in real time as a result of changing mental experience.
2. Lack of technology to precisely measure brain plasticity
3. Dogma dies hard. Confuse Map for Territory. Projection of machine like paradigm on all brain problems.

SUPER-BRAIN. The First Step to Optimizing Your Brain.

Have you been battling mental, emotional, and neurological problems, such as Anxiety, Depression, a Mood Disorder, Memory, Focus, Executive Function issues or more extreme brain degeneration like Concussion, Dementia, Alzheimer’s or Chemo-Brain? Is your Brain Foggy, Slow & Sluggish??? If so you’ve probably spent tons of time, effort and money searching for answers as to what the underlying causes are in the brain. You may even be thinking, “Geezzzz, wouldn’t someone tell me what the heck is actually going on in my brain for goodness sake???” If you knew what was going on in your brain it would be a whole lot easier to change it, right???  Right now you may feel like you’ve tried “everything”, but yet you’re still stuck. Of course you haven’t tried everything, there is always something better, especially when you change the game, and upgrade your approach.

If you’re like most you may have gotten, some or no benefit, from conventional approaches, perhaps a particular diet, or nutrition program has helped some, but still you’re hungry for much much more – far more powerful, lasting results. You may now be at the stage where, “Enough is Enough!!!” and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to Transform your Brain and Health.” If so, congratulations!!! You have one incredibly exciting journey ahead! Transforming your brain will open up a world of new possibilities for your mind, your health, your life.

But what is the first step to optimizing your brain? What is THE ONE MOST CRITICAL FACTOR to most effectively re-wiring your brain and, in the broader scheme of things, what is the most critical factor to becoming a Super-Learner & taking yourself to the next level in your discipline, sport or business? 

Science is always moving to new and better ways of understanding the world, and thus so should you be moving to new and better ways of protecting & optimizing your brain. Remember inventors like Thomas Edison failed thousands of times before he found that right combination that turned on the lights!!! Turn on the lights in your brain! YES!!! Everything you’ve tried up until now, the time, the effort, the money, the failures and things that have worked and those that haven’t, have simply been FEEDBACK, feedback that has led you to this moment to discover and do something new, something better, something more systematic and complete to fundamentally re-wire your brain. Total Brain Transformation, that is what The Game Changer Brain & Beyond Neuroplasticity is designed to do. That is what I’m about, Total Transformation. But what’s the first step to changing your brain?


 The first step, the first key to unlocking and unleashing your brain is FEEDBACK. What’s actually going on in your brain??? You’ve got to find out what’s actually going on in your brain. How can you know unless your look? It’s time to stop guessing, and relying on what people believe, thats a dangerous game that costs money, time, your health & your life. The Solution is simple. See for yourself what the evidence shows is going on in your Brain. Get a picture of your Brain and go from there. Advances in technology now allow you to find out what’s actually going on in your brain – not for $10,000+ as typically charged in the U.S. but for only a few hundred dollars. A few hundred dollars for a complete, clear picture of your Brain. A picture says a thousand words right? Stop guessing and start guiding yourself to results by Mapping your Brain. 


Feedback is the key to success, to rapid results, to finding what will work best for you. Feedback on how your brain is really functioning and your brain’s state of health is critical. You see, your brain is involved in everything you do, your nervous system’s functioning and state of health, radically alters your thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours. Feelings don’t just come from no where, they are mediated by your enteric nervous system, which connect hollow and solid organs and are linked to your neocortex and thus your mind. When your brain is imbalanced, your mind and behaviour is imbalanced. You feel off”, “You’re off your Game”, “Off balance and stressed”. What people describe is literally happening in their brain. Listen to yourself. Do you find yourself saying, “I wish I had more time?”  If so, timing is off in your brain and your brain is running slow – it’s lagging“Things are a mess right now, I’m overwhelmed?” If so, then things are a mess in your brain, and the chaos, disorder, de-coherence and imbalances may have brought you to a place of stress and overwhelm.

Quite simply, when your brain is slow, sluggish, tired, rigid, your mind and body are slow, sluggish, and rigid, and STRESS accumulates big time. Eventually you’ll break-down unless you change your brain. Also, when your Brain loses its JUICE you lose your enthusiasm, mood and motivation. “Feeling Dull? Does the world seem dim?” If so, the voltage and electricity in your brain is dimmed and reduced. TURN UP THE LIGHTS IN YOUR BRAIN & LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE!!! 

In our society we are so quickly labeled and diagnosed with particular conditions at the slightest opportunity. Not only that, we are constantly attaching labels onto ourselves. However the Truth is, how can you truly know what’s going on in your brain unless you look??? You get up every morning and check yourself out in the mirror – fix your hair, do your make up etc. However, you can’t just look in a mirror and check out your brain to see how its doing. You need to get an image of your brain to see what it’s doing, see what’s actually going on between those two ears, not what someone just “tells” you. You need clear, visible, quantifiable evidence of where and what the problems may be in your brain, and thus know what to do to fix them. Seems to make sense right?

So, would you like to finally see a conclusive picture of what’s actually going on in your brain? 


“Measuring and Quantifying the Brain is the key to Optimizing the brain.”

This is True for both:

1. Peak Performance – Maximize Learning Abilities, Memory, Cognitive & Athletic Performance, Speaking, Creativity & Innovation.

2. Transforming Neurological Conditions & Learning Disorders


Here is a video in which i use QEEG Brain Mapping to show the changes in my brain function over the course of executing my own personal Neuroplasticity Brain Optimization Game Plan, which included Neurofeedback, Neuroplasticity Brain Training Exercises, Qigong/Tai Chi, Brainpower Nutrition and some other brain-enhancing modalities.

Each person’s brain is unique, and so the approach to balancing and optimizing the brain is unique for each person. Quantification and Tracking Results, getting FEEDBACK, is the key to see if what you are doing is working – everything should be Results Driven. When you start Focusing on Results, and start doing more and more of what works, and stop doing what doesn’t, you start accelerating to success, FAST. 

Jumping into Drugs, Nutraceuticals, and Interventions before knowing where your Brain is at, is like trying to drive your car across the country, without having any idea of where you’re starting from. Having no idea of where you’re at how do you know which direction to drive? Do you drive East or do you drive West to get to the same destination?

We all want to get to the same destination – Energized, Focused, Balanced Peak Cognition – so that all our talents and abilities flow. However, the path that you need to drive to get there is completely dependent on where you’re starting from! You need to see where you’re brain is starting from. This is why you must get an image of your Brain, such as a QEEG Brain Map.

Did you know that there are up to 6 different types of ADD/ADHD patterns in the brain if not more? Did you know that each form of ADD/ADHD, has different brain-wave patterns, different levels of brain voltage and different connectivity issues between brain regions? 

You may have a low voltage brain, a Blue Brain, as seen on a QEEG Brain Map, which is completely different than a Hyper-Active Brain with Hyper-Connectivity between some brain regions and disconnection between others – but both would be diagnosed as ADD. But obviously since the brain imbalances are completely different, the approaches should be different. A “one-size fits all” is harmful and doesn’t work, considering how diverse the brain’s are of individuals with the same conditions really are.

Why is Autism called a Spectrum disorder? Because the altered neurological development varies across an entire diverse spectrum, all depending on the different mix of factors that have altered the brain, which affect each individual brain in a unique way.

Not only is Brain Mapping and Brain Imaging critical to healing and re-wiring the brain, Quantification and Measurement is critical to Optimization & Peak Performance in sports, in school, in business.

Many Brilliant kids and students in education are blocked and prevented from fully expressing their abilities due to little bottlenecks in their brain. You can be the most brilliant person in the world, but if in high-stress situations your Brain locks up & Anxiety networks run wild all your higher cognitive abilities will be high-jacked. I know, it happened to me my entire life !!! Many of my clients are high school students, who are absolute geniuses, but suffer from the same things I did – Anxiety, Tension and Panic – all of which severely hold them back, limit full expression of their cognitive & intellectual abilities. This is especially true of brilliant kids on the Spectrum. I work with kids who are remarkably talented in math, science and have incredible abilities to learn, but in social situations, such as interacting with other children, and high pressure situations, big tests, they completely freeze up.

On QEEG Brain Maps, we can see which specific networks of the brain, such as the anxiety networks, negativity and fear centres, are over-activated. And so we can train, and re-wire the brain, specifically those networks, to move from frozen in fear, to completely LETTING GO and LETTING FLOW, anxiety vaporize, creativity optimized. Knowing the precise hiccups in a person’s brain allows for far greater precision and faster results with brain training. The brain map facilities much greater precision in terms of the Mind Mastery techniques like Mental Qigong Practices, NLP, Hypnosis, Super-Learning Strategies and other Neuroplasticity Exercises and the Entire Brain & Beyond Neuroplasticity Protocol that is recommended for a client.

Thinking of Peak Performance in Sports and Athletics, what’s the difference between a talented Athlete and an Olympic Athlete? The Brain is the difference that makes the difference. How fast can your neurology fire? how electric is your energy? How fast can you activate your body and move at lightening speed? How silent, still & thus thunderously powerful is your mind? How powerful is your ability to visualize, see, and create neurological patterns in your brain that re-wire and enhance performance? Differences in these Neurological Abilities are The Difference that makes THE DIFFERENCE. Your Brain is THE GAME CHANGER.  

All the magical abilities, such as SUPER-PERFORMANCE STATES, time distortion, pain control, resilience and relentless persistence are all mediated and controlled by your Brain.

Seeing where your Brain is at, and then most effectively and efficiently optimizing your neurology is the key to going from good to great, great to legendary, student to master, smart to genius, Juniors to the Pros, million dollar business to one-hundred million dollar business, you name it!!! Bottom Line, your Brain is your Number one Resource to taking your Career and your Life to the Next Level. It’s time that you check in to see how your brain is actually doing, don’t you agree?


 

QEEG BRAIN MAPPING

Quantify & Image your Brain Now. The Brain Mapping provides a complete picture of your brain like a map of the world, revealing the functioning of each individual brain region across the entire frequency spectrum. The Brain Mapping also reveals the functioning of deeper brain networks, like memory and emotional networks, executive function networks, sleep networks, pain and pleasure networks. The Brain Map specifically shows:

  1. The speed of communication between brain regions
  2. How “connected” brain regions are. Ex: Poor connection across executive function networks in the frontal lobes will result in Brain Fog, ADD, In-decision, Procrastination etc.
  3. Your Dominant Frequency – what your brain’s idling speed is. Thus showing predispositions to anxiety, hyper-activity on the one hand, or tendencies towards ADD, brain fog, lethargy, suppressed mood, motivation on the other.
  4. Complete Comparison of your Brain matched up against normative database of people of same, age, sex, and personal characteristics – showing how you compare to the norm.
  5. Identify the functioning of each brain region across the entire spectrum – for example, showing the function of every brain region across BETA – a frequency associated with vigilance, attention and information processing. In cases of ADD and Focus Issues, the frontal lobes actually shut down, are under-active in beta, when a person tries to focus. So, this is why you or your kids may have such difficulty working and learning – the harder you try, the more your brain shuts down and fails you. You need to re-wire your brain and get those frontal lobes working right!!! It starts with the Brain Mapping. Map your Brain. 

Now that you have an idea of what the brain mapping will show and reveal …

Here is the Full Brain Mapping Process.

1. Come in for Full Initial Baseline Brain Map

Notable Details.

A. Ideally no neurologically active drugs should be consumed before-hand unless necessary.

B. Have a small, to moderate breakfast – protein (eggs), fat (coconut oil), and perhaps some berries. Nothing too heavy. Drink lot’s of water beforehand

C. Be prepared for a bad-hair day! A QEEG Cap, with gel will be used to get a good connection on the scalp to measure actual brain activity not your hair! Powder room, brush and hair-dryer is provided for the ladies and gentleman if desired!

2. Full Video & Audio Recorded Analysis, Interpretation of the Entire Brain Mapping Session – clients are provided these full recordings at the conclusion of the session.

3. INTERVENTION – depending on the brain mapping, we’ll do some form of intervention to improve your brain right away, to get immediate feedback to see how your brain responds to specific treatments/protocols which are recommended based on your brain map.

The Intervention may be one or more of:

  1. Neurofield or Neurofeedback Brain Training Session – personally tailored to balancing your brain.
  2. SUPER-BRAIN BEVERAGE – High Octane Brain Fuel consisting of Superfoods, Tonic Herbs, High Octane fats for the Brain.
  3. Specific cocktail of nutraceuticals and supplements for your brain.
  4. Hypnosis, NLP, Mind Mastery Meditation Session with The Game Changer or other Master Brain Trainers.
  5. Set of Qigong / Tai Chi Exercises.

Plus many other endless array of combinations and interventions with the treatments and practices we do at The Game Changer.

4. Post-Baseline Brain Map and Full-Analysis to see how your Brain responds to Intervention/Treatment.

This is the essence science. You have a set of data, the initial brain map, from which you form a hypothesis, having a good grasp on whats going on in your brain, and then design some intervention to immediately test the hypothesis, and see the results that you get.  And so as part of this Complete Brain Optimization Brain Mapping Experience, not only do you get a complete Image & Analysis of your brain, you also get to learn and see how your brain responds to treatment, receiving valuable feedback. You can even bring whatever medications, supplements or nutraceuticals you’ve been taking or have been told to take, and we can test to see whether they are helping or hurting your brain.

As you can see, The Brain Mapping is a major piece of the Game Changer Full NEURO-ASSESSMENT, which altogether provides a panoramic picture of where your brain and health is at right now.

The Brain Mapping allows us to design specific tailored brain training protocols with the Neuro-technologies like the Neurofield and Neurofeedback to balance & optimize your brain.
