Autonomic Nervous System

What Is The Autonomic Nervous System? The autonomic nervous system regulates involuntary functions of the human body, such as breathing and digestion.Through our senses, we are constantly assessing our environment and automatically sending information to the brain where the brain instantaneously elicits appropriate changes throughout the body.The autonomic nervous system has two divisions – sympathetic and parasympathetic.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: The autonomic nervous system doesn’t differentiate between real danger and psychological stress. Neuropeak Pro can help you train your brain to decrease your sympathetic nervous system response allowing your body to properly manage everyday stress, which promotes better focus, memory, and creativity.

Breathing

Breathing And The Brain: Oxygen intake is an important factor that allows for the brain to function optimally. Additionally, oxygen intake influences how the autonomic nervous system manages brain and body’s response to our environment. Each lung has over 300 million tiny air sacs, called alveoli, through which the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place. Rapid and shallow breaths interface with only a small percentage of alveoli. All the systems of the body are connected, and respiratory inefficiency can also severely impact the heart.

 
 
 
 

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Learning to breath in a more effective away can increase oxygen intake and widen heart rate variability, improving the heart’s adaptability to the change. Neuropeak Pro breathing and coherence training uses breathing techniques that allow the autonomic nervous system, specifically the heart and lungs, to adjust to environmental stressors with greater flexibility.

Once you complete an assessment, you can begin breathing training.

Coherence

What Is Coherence? Coherence is an indication of how efficiently the heart and lungs are working together. Coherence comes from the term ‘coherent breathing’, which is a form of breathing that can lower the workload on your heart and increase your heart rate variability

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Managing stress allows your body to respond appropriately and with ease, according to the actual environment. Neuropeak Pro breathing and coherence training focuses on training the rate, symmetry, and amplitude of breathing for optimal functioning to improve heart and lung efficiency.

Once you complete an assessment, you can begin coherence training.

Neurofeedback

What Equipment Is Used For Neurofeedback? The brain is an electrical organ. An EEG (electroencephalogram) is used to assess the electrical activity of the brain at multiple locations to determine where improvements can be made.

How Neurofeedback Works: Neurofeedback training is rooted in neuroplasticity, which means the brain’s ability to rewire itself to function at its peak. Training is driven by the efficiency of the brain’s electrical activity. If the efficiency of the brain is optimal, it will receive positive reinforcement. If the efficiency of the brain becomes less than optimal, it will receive a negative punishment, like the pause of a movie. Over time, the brain learns from the positive reinforcements to become more balance and resilient.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Neuropeak Pro neurofeedback training regulates the brain’s electrical activity during the simple activity of watching a movie. Training provides many benefits; both during the day by improving focus, attention and creativity, and during the night by improving neurological recovery during sleep. If the efficiency of the brain is improved, so are its functions, including hormone regulation, memory consolidation, and mental performance.

Once you complete an assessment, you can begin neurofeedback training.

Sleep

Importance Of Sleep: During sleep the brain is very active engaging in important cycles of rest and recovery. Processes such as tissue repair, memory consolidation, hormone regulation and muscle memory occur to prepare for the day ahead. When the brain and body are deprived of adequate recovery time it impacts all the systems of the body, increasing susceptibility to illnesses, decreasing productivity and negatively influencing mood. The electrical efficiency of the brain is impacted by both the quantity and quality of sleep the it achieves. Less sleep decreases the brain’s ability to adapt and properly manage stress.

Hormones

Hormones We Assess: Saliva samples are collected to measure levels of three key hormones; cortisol, DHEA-S, and testosterone.

• Cortisol is considered the primary “stress” hormone. It fine-tunes our response to the numerous demands of everyday living. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands and is responsible for awakening systems of the body in the morning.

• DHEA-S is one of the most abundant hormones in the body, with the ability to balance some of the negative effects of high cortisol. and is a precursor to the formation of estrogen and testosterone.

• Testosterone is important for both men and women of all ages and impacts the body in many ways including bone strength, energy level, and development of lean muscle.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Hormone levels that are optimally regulated give rise to quality sleep, cognitive clarity, improved recovery and more sustainable energy. By determining the hormone levels of the body, Neuropeak Pro is able to identify any inefficiencies and offer solutions to improve your overall wellness.

Visual Processing

What is Visual Processing? The sequence of steps that information takes as it transmits from visual sensors to cognitive processing. The brain processes and interprets all visual information, including stimuli like symbols, pictures and distances. Inefficient processing of visual information adds unnecessary strain on the brain, decreasing the proficiency of the brain’s electrical functioning, and reducing productivity.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: The brain is the core of overall health due to its constant interactions with each system of the body. Neuropeak Pro visual training enhances the ability of the eyes to process visual information more quickly and accurately, improving visual skills such as eye movement control and eye coordination with the brain.

Exercise

Exercise And Its Effects On The Brain: Physical activity leads to positive changes in the brain from a molecular level to a behavioral level. Exercise additionally provides protection against aging, decline of executive functioning and memory decline in the brain.

How Neuropeak Pro Can Help: Neuropeak Pro recommends starting with taking at least 10,000 steps each day. As part of the Elite Assessment, we also offer DNA/Generic Performance and Muskuloskeletal Alignment Testing. Based on these results, we are able to recommend an exercise philosophy that will benefit you best.

Nutrition

Nutrition And The Brain: The brain consumes 20% of the body’s total caloric intake, while it accounts for only 2% of total body weight. Because the brain never shuts down, it requires a steady source of fuel. The choice of what and when to eat is of primary importance as research demonstrates that nutrition is directly connected to mental health and optimal brain performance.

How Neuropeak Can Help: The digestive tract contains healthy bacterial biome, which is responsible for digestion, absorption, inflammation, mood, and energy. What you eat in order to fuel this biome directly impacts the delicate balance of the body’s system and subsequently determines physical and mental wellbeing. Neuropeak Pro utilizes biome testing services that provide key insights to what diet is ideal for your gut health and overall performance.
