LENS and NeuroField brain stimulators

Posted by Hugh on August 27, 2014, at 15:14:15

LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) and NeuroField are low-intensity pEMF devices that target and disrupt unhealthy brainwave patterns. The signal they send into the brain is much weaker than that used by TMS, but much more specific. TMS usually uses 10 hertz, almost always over the left prefrontal cortex. LENS and NeuroField are much more flexible.

A clinician will use EEG to look at different areas of the brain. When brainwave activity with an abnormally high amplitude is found, an electrical signal will be sent into the brain to break up the abnormal EEG activity. Over time (usually 10 to 20 sessions), the EEG activity will normalize in about 80% of patients.

This video shows how NeuroField affects a patient's brain:

This book gives a detailed description of how LENS works, and contains quite a few patient testimonials:

I'm currently reading The Neurofeedback Solution by Stephen Larsen. Like Larsen's previous book, The Healing Power of Neurofeedback, it describes the LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System). But the newer book also describes another brain treatment device called NeuroField. And it has interviews with and articles by some of the leaders in the field of neurofeedback, such as Mark Smith, Martin Wuttke, Nicholas Dogris, and Jay Gunkelman.

This video demonstrates the effect NeuroField has on a brain:

The brain is both a biochemical and a bioelectrical system. Medication works on the chemical system, while LENS works on the electrical system. We might think of LENS helping the brain to reboot, like a computer that is no longer functioning optimally. LENS is just as safe and effective as traditional neurofeedback, and works much more quickly, saving both time and money.

The treatment itself consists of sitting quietly in a comfortable chair with your eyes gently closed, while the neurofeedback practitioner applies a tiny electrode with conductive paste to your scalp to both measure the brainwave activity and to deliver treatment. It is a completely painless and noninvasive procedure and most find it very relaxing.

Neurofeedback clinicians have noticed a strong connection between excessive activity in the EEG, particularly in the slower brainwaves, and difficulties with mood, energy, focus, and mental clarity. Trauma and stress tend to cause EEG suppression, in which the brain protects itself from overload and seizure activity by reducing activity, which in turn limits functioning. In this case, the person doesnt have the full range of emotions, thoughts and abilities they once had. LENS helps to normalize both excess activity and suppression in the EEG, and people feel better and are able to do more of what they want. Most people who receive LENS treatment report feeling more calm, relaxed, and in control of themselves.
