( - PLANO TX – There are increasingly frequent reports of prescription drugs being removed from the market because of dangerous side effects. Some of these side effects have been so severe that the FDA announcement has appeared on the Front Page as a major news item.

A brief search on the web will show that ADHD medications such as Ritalin® and Adderal® and antidepressant medication such as Prozac® and Effexor® can spell big trouble for some. ADHD medications, for example, can cause drowsiness, appetite loss, lethargy, insomnia, headaches, abdominal pain, motor abnormalities, facial and vocal tics, jaw clenching, skin problems, liver disorders, weight loss, growth suppression, hypertension, and sudden cardiac death. Associated emotional difficulties include depression, apathy, a general dullness, mood swings, crying jags, irritability, anxiety, and a sense of hostility toward the world. New psychiatric problems such obsessive-compulsive symptoms, mania, paranoia, psychotic episodes, and hallucinations symptoms can lead to a “new” diagnosis of Bipolar and still more drugs with increasingly bad side effects. SSRIs such as Prozac® can also cause recurring bouts of depression, sexual dysfunction, muscle tics, fatigue, emotional blunting, and apathy. Investigators have also reported that long-term use of antidepressants is associated with memory impairment, problem solving difficulties, loss of creativity, and learning deficiencies.

In spite of so many people suffering from these disabling side effects, the public is not being told is that there is a safe and highly effective alternative. This process is called ‘NeuroMatrix Neural Efficiency Training.’

Neuroscience has taught us that performance (attention, focus, learning ability), mood, memory, behavior, and emotional resilience are all created by our brain. If we are struggling with Attention Deficit Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, Autism, and OCD, for example, it means our brain is neurologically dysfunctional in one or more working areas and doing its job poorly.

Dr. Marvin Sams, a brain researcher with decades of clinical and research experience, has developed NeuroMatrix Neural Efficiency Training(TM) as an alternative to psychiatric drugs and their side effects. A Quantitative EEG (computerized brain wave analysis) defines where and in what way the brain is neurologically impaired; Dr. Sams’ research based Neurofeedback (brain wave training) protocols, Light sound therapy (flashing light and pulsing sound) "pulls" or "nudges" the brain out of "stuck" brain patterns, and Transcranial DC Stimulation, a technology that modulates and stabilizes brain function remediate and optimize brain function. Heart Rate Variability biofeedback (breathing training) is also used to coach the body to be more relaxed under stressful situations.

A primary feature of the NeuroMatrix Neural Efficiency Analysis is that the brain wave patterning is compared to those of neurologically normal subjects. This comparison allows an objective understanding of the specific neurological inefficiencies producing the performance, mood, or behavior symptoms. Follow up Quantitative EEG analyses document progress.

One would expect that with such a dramatic development, Dr. Sams would have a unique professional background. And, he does -- Five decades of clinical and research EEG (brain wave analysis) in such institutions as the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and the Ohio State University Hospitals, Columbus, Ohio, with degrees in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and Natural Medicine. His unique understanding of the normal, abnormal, and superior functioning brain, the balancing and harmonizing principles of Oriental Medicine, and the understanding of natural healing philosophies of Naturopathy has allowed him to develop NeuroMatrix Neural Efficiency Training. The highly specific and effective Neurological training techniques lead to rapid remediation and optimization of healthy brain function, creating a higher quality of life and a new possible future instead of long term disability.

Using his unique understanding of the normal, abnormal and superior brain, Dr. Sams has spent the past two decades developing highly specific and effective Neurofeedback training protocols. His clinical research has lead to the development of a clinically proven system that rapidly remediates virtually any neurological inefficiency, including attention disorders, learning disabilities, depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar, and many of the symptoms of head injury and stroke.

He has been allowed several patents for his inventions of innovative, medical-related technology, honored with an international award from the International Federation of Societies of Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology, and awarded the Maureen Berkeley Award by the American Society of EEG Technologists for outstanding written technical contributions to the field of Electroneurodiagnostics.

Dr. Sams is the inventor of the ECI Electro-Cap, a unique EEG electrode system used internationally by leading medical centers. The electrode system greatly improves electrode placement accuracy over old methods, while reducing patient setup time from 30 minutes to 5 minutes or less.

Dr. Sams uses his knowledge of neurophysiology, electrophysiology and psychophysiology to optimize performance and maximize human potential. His clinical specialty is children and adults with the symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, epilepsy, OCD, Bipolar, the symptoms of closed head injuries and stroke, as well as performance enhancement, working with athletes, entrepreneurs, sales and business professionals.

There are a number of drug detox program options available for people who have been abusing antidepressants, stimulants and other prescription drugs.
