Our brains are incredible organs but sometimes we need to give them new programming. That’s what Dr. Andrew Hill does with his patients. He has spent his life and career understanding the brain’s patterns and the best way to help undo the unwanted ones.
Using brain mapping along with neurofeedback stimulus, Dr. Hill has helped thousands of people overcome addiction, trauma, and a host of other neurological problems. Everything from experiencing early age trauma to the repercussions of ADHD and OCD has been able to be corrected through his program.
First, he completes a thorough history and checkup. Then you go through the process of brain mapping. The brain map itself is not a diagnostic, but when used while asking deeper questions, several brain patterns can be found.
The next step is retraining the brain through neurofeedback.
Listen in as we chat all about the brain and why you might need or want to look into brain mapping and neurofeedback. Dr. Hill also shares some of his key pointers for getting better sleep.

We’ve all experienced pain, but how much of it is physiological and how much of it is psychological? I’m asking this question because I recently had a really bad bout with pain and it reminded me about the work of Dr. John Sarno. Dr. John Sarno did a ton of research around the Mindbody Connection. He started his career as a regular doctor, assessing physical trauma and prescribing pain meds or surgery as needed. All was well until he realized that his patients didn’t always get better after the initial issue was treated.
