The Functional Medicine Center, Living Well Dallas, which is popular for its Brain Health Program, has just added Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG) treatment and diagnostics to their program, for the benefit of its patients [1].

So What is Quantitative Electroencephalogram Diagnostics?

Quantitative EEG, AKA brain mapping, refers to: “a method of analyzing the electrical activity of the brain to derive quantitative patterns that may correspond to diagnostic information and/or cognitive deficits. Clinical studies have demonstrated distinctive forms of brain electrical activity in psychiatric conditions including attention deficit disorder, schizophrenia, major depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder” [2]. As qEEG can record brainwaves, it enables specialists to create a map of participants’ brains, and according to the results, produce a custom-built neurofeedback treatment protocol which is designed to ameliorate particular conditions

At the present time, research shows specific types of electrical brain activity in a number of psychiatric conditions. These include: OCD, major depression, schizophrenia, autism, and learning disabilities. However, further research is needed in the fields of quantitative EEG for diagnosis, disease progression evaluation, and treatment .

The Extensive Brain Health Program Which Includes Free Facebook Courses


Along with the qEEG element, Living Well Dallas is also hosting a number of uplifting health centered workshops. These will cover “Conscious Cleanses,” healthy hormones and GMOs.

There will be a series of spring workshops and courses centered on physical health and mental well-being. A number of courses are provided free on the organization’s Facebook Live page; and some will be held in Dallas at 17000 Preston Road, Suite 400.
