Neurocore Centers were created to help with brain performance for anyone who desires their services. You do not have to “have something wrong with you” to benefit from the center. They have been able to help people specifically who struggle with ADHD, anxiety, ASD, depression, memory, migraines, sleep, or stress. The purpose of the center is to take normal brain function of change and make it stronger. Brain mapping is used to engage the brain in real time.
When you go to a center for the first time they will perform an initial assessment to address your concerns and see how your brain is performing. Then they will create a customized program to fit your needs, and then carry out the program to completion. At completion of the program there will be final assessment that will compare and show the results of when you came in to where your brain is at, at completion of the program.
Everything about being human and being alive begins in the brain. At the treatment center they understand that people respond to positive results. They also understand that humans create habits whether it is good or bad, and that mood swings occur. There are very interesting patterns, chemicals, and reactions in the brain. Of which can be changed, altered or improved. These occurrences in the brain come from nature, what we have learned, our conscious and subconscious. All these factors affect our mood, though process, how we act and react, and our interactions with others.
There are numerous cases and people that the neurocenters have helped. These cases are not in the intent to make them look better, but to show that you can help or improve your brain function. Originally the centers were opened to help people with attention deficit disorder and since been expanded to help many others including sports stars that “need to keep their head in the game”. This is not just an expression or just applies to sports, but a truth of life. One key to going to the center, to receive the most from the treatment, is to have an open mind about the process.
Diseases Can Be Prevented
In countries suffering in poverty such as Ghana, organizations such as Sightsavers make all the difference. Providing essential preventative measures to villages and communities that have no access to treatment is life changing for most. In 2000, Sightsavers began its mission to treat diseases such as Trachoma in Sub-Saharan African countries such as Ghana. The approach was simple, provide preventative measures to every single member of the communities, administer treatment to those already infected, and implement the World Health Organization’s SAFE strategy. What starts as a bacterial infection, continues to escalate until eyelids are curling inward, scratching the eye like sandpaper causing intense pain. Eventually leading to blindness, this disease can be traced back to ancient Egyptians.
20 Years And 7 Million Surgeries
Important milestones are reached on a regular basis with Sightsavers, and Ghana is no exception. In fact, the World Health Organization declared Ghana completely free of the Trachoma infection, the first of the Sub-Saharan Countries. It was a celebratory event for Sightsavers, whose efforts contributed to the elimination of the infectious disease. Additionally, Sightsavers has performed over 7 million surgical procedures on a mission to save people’s sight over the last twenty years! The fact that most of these diseases are completely preventable with the proper education, resources, and medications.
Education And Training Community Partners
By partnering with community members and providing them with training, more of the residents can be reached. These community partners are the feet on the ground when those around them need vital medications. With outreach programs such as this, no villager gets left behind or forgotten. The chosen community member can reach out to Sightsavers if there is a particular need for a surgical procedure in their community. The surgeries are easily performed by capable surgeons and can mean the difference in the quality of life for the patient. Some patients have stories of working to support their families, and once stricken with blindness, have no longer been able to provide. After many years without sight, surgeries are performed to restore vision. One man had never seen his own grandchild, only heard his cries. Sightsavers is restoring sight and treating patients across South Africa, the Caribbean, and Asian countries.
