This illustration outlines several conditions that many of us have experienced, or know someone that has. What they all have in common is the brain. This where we begin in the Unique Mind Care brain health model. Our clinical staff understands how to locate the area of the brain that is creating or causing the challenges that our clients are experiencing. Additional focus is placed on the systems in the body that support healthy brain function.

How Does the Brain Work?

The brain has two systems in it; one chemical, and one electrical. These systems are also referred to as the EEG (electrical) and Neurotransmitter (chemical) systems. The EEG system works on multiple electrical frequencies. The Neurotransmitter system works on multiple transmitters that have specific functions. In order for the brain to function and process information, these two systems must work together; electrical signals traveling on chemical messengers. When either of these two systems is out of balance you will have issues also called symptoms like the ones indicated in the graphic above.

Unique Mind Care Treats the EEG and the Neurotransmitters

In order to be effective in treating all of the conditions associated with brain health, we believe it is important to test and treat both systems at the same time. The relationship between these two systems is “co-dependent”. Another way of understanding this dependency is that an imbalance in one will lead to a correlating imbalance in the other.   In order to for the client to have long-term success in the treatment outcomes, a clear understanding of all the underlying causes is necessary during the testing and diagnostic phase. Additional information on our testing model and Brain Mapping is outlined in this website.

What We Believe About Medication and the Brain

When it comes to the medication model for ourselves and our children, we begin by helping all of our clients understand that they do have other options. Before a final decision is made on medication, we believe that a clear understanding of the underlying cause needs to be identified with accurate evidenced based testing. After testing, we educate our clients in our drug-free treatment model and how it will address the issues in the brain that may be causing the challenges.

Treat the Symptom or the Cause?

It is important to understand that most medication is treating the symptom, not the cause. When you stop taking the medication, frequently the original condition will return. At Unique Mind Care all of our treatment plans are designed to address the underlying cause. Our clinical evidence indicates that our treatments are effective and long lasting. All treatments have been cleared by the FDA and safe for treatments.

Medication Management

Frequently clients will come to Unique Mind Care already on certain psychiatric medications. Sometimes the side effects of these medications may be disruptive in other areas of life. Other clients just want to stop taking the medications for various reasons. Whether you want to stop taking medications or create a med management program to reduce dosage or number of individual scripts, Unique Mind Care can help. All Medication management programs require medical supervision with a licensed Medical Doctor (MD).
