What Causes Bipolar Disorder ? What Causes Schizophrenia ?

We see many people diagnosed as bipolar or schizophrenic. Some were previously diagnosed ADHD or even autistic. They've gone from doctor to doctor gathering many different diagnoses and mediciations.
In our experience, many times these individuals have other issues that are actually masking as symptoms for bipolar or schizophrenia. Food sensitivies, heavy metals, toxins, sensory integration disorders to name a few. These individuals have usually been on a selection of pharmaceuticals trying to get the symptoms under control. The problem is, medication doesn't typically address the root cause. In fact, many times the pharmaceuticals make things worse.

What Causes Bipolar?
For mental, emotional and environmental issues, stressful life events are thought to be the main element in the development of bipolar disorder. These can range from a death in the family to the loss of a job, from the birth of a child to a move. It can be pretty much anything, but it cannot be precisely defined, since one person's stress may be another person's piece of cake.

With that in mind, research has found that stressful life events can lead to the onset of symptoms in bipolar disorder. However, once the disorder is triggered and progresses, "it seems to develop a life of its own." Once the cycle begins, psychological and/or biological processes take over and keep the illness active.

Researchers have identified specific areas of the brain that are affected: the frontal and temporal lobes of the forebrain, thr prefrontal cortex, the basal ganglia and parts of the limbic system. The hippocampus may also play a role in bipolar disorder. Brain imaging studies have recently demonstarted neuroanatomical basis to bipolr disorder.

What causes Schizophrenia?
Stress imposed by life events or family circumstances appears to be an important external event associated with schizophrenia. The onset of illness is often associated with a distressful period in life and it may be that stress can trigger the onset of illness in those people with a genetic predisposition to the disease.

The areas of the brain identified as being affected by schizophrenia are: the frontal lobe, temporal lobe and limbic system. The cerebellum is also thought to be affected by schizophrenia. Neurotransmitter imbalance is also implicated in schizophrenia.

How can AudioVisual Entrainment from BioEnergetics Solutions Llc help?
At BioEnergetics we know the connection that exists between the limbic system (emotional center of the brain) and the Frontal Cortex can be trained with our system. We train to calm this area and help the brain reach homeostasis. AudioVisual Entrainment helps the Bipolar or Schizophrenic sufferer to normalize brain function, thus controlling the symptoms. These disorders typically activate the frequency brainwaves associated with depression, anxiety or anger. These associated emotions activate profound sensory-motor and autonomic system dysregulation. AudioVisual Entrainment may be able to reduce these autonomic arousal patterns. AudioVisual Entrainment can lead to a calmer, reflective and increased healthy and rational response.
