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.

Most of us don’t spend too much time paying attention to how we breathe. After all, breathing is an unconscious activity; we don’t have to think about it, we just do it. If you want to take your health and wellbeing to the next level, then it’s time to become more mindful of how you are breathing. Read on to explore the physical and mental health benefits of deep breathing and learn easy breathing exercises you can do yourself.
How do you do it? How do you avoid sweets, grains, and all the junk that’s out there. The answer, while simple, is not accomplished in a very easy manner, but the reward is amazing. The same can be said of how you approach the food that you eat. I don’t have to avoid eating cake because I have changed my identity in that I just don’t eat cake. If someone offers it, I can easily avoid it because cake is not something that is in my diet and it’s not something that makes me feel good.
