Retraining the Brain
Eating disorders have a powerful impact on the body and mind. Using science-based techniques, patients find they are able to get their power back. The Brain Center at The Meadows Ranch teaches patients to improve the brain’s self-regulation, allowing it to work more efficiently, so they can regain control over their bodies.
When you look the brain of someone with an active eating disorder, malnourishment makes concentration difficult and absorbing and retaining information is almost impossible. Our Brain Center uses neurofeedback to essentially “reprogram” the brain, while biofeedback and other state-of-the-art equipment allows patients to learn to calm and self-regulate. The work they do in the Brain Center can speed up the healing process, preparing patients to begin the deeper work of recovery sooner.
