Podcast 26 – Automatic Brain Training with Kelsey Brenner
By seeing how our brain is behaving, we can train our brains! If we are anxious most of the time, we can use feedback to reward our brains for being calm, and train ourselves out of anxiety. That’s pretty cool!
In a previous episode, we were fortunate enough to have Dr David Traster, of South Florida Integrative Health speak to us about Lyme disease and brain injuries (on Podcast Adventure #21), and now, we have the other partner from South Florida Integrative Health Clinic on the show.
Dr. Kelsey Brenner DC, DACNB, FABBIR, brings her gentle feminine energy and powerful knowledge base as a Chiropractor and Functional Neurologist, Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board and Fellow of the American Board of Brain Injury and Rehabilitation to show us how neurofeedback can be used to train our brains without us even trying!
