Brain Fitness Program

Grow Your Brain, Grow Your Memory, Grow your mind

Brain Fitness Program

Covered by most insurances, this intensive Brain Fitness Program is designed to boost your memory, attention, focus, and sleep within 12 weeks. The results of the Brain Fitness Program were published in the Journal of Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease in March 2016, and were also featured in an article in TIME magazine in August 2016.

Comprehensive Brain Fitness Treatment

The treatment portion of your Brain Fitness Program uses the latest discoveries in the field of neuroscience, and is akin to physical activity for your brain. Based on the latest scientific findings in the field of neuroscience, Dr. Fotuhi has developed tailored programs for recovery from concussion and memory loss. One aspect of those plans involves brain coaching, a one-on-one session with a dedicated, trained advocate.  During sessions, patients have the opportunity to speak with their brain coach about attainable solutions to enhancing memory, reducing stress, improving organizational skills, and discovering creative ways to overcome challenging life circumstances. 

The Attention Boosting Program focuses on enhancing areas of your brain that are particularly important for attention, executive function, and impulse control – namely your frontal lobes.  Dozens of neuroscience studies have shown that non-pharmaceutical interventions such as exercise, brain training, specific supplements, and neurofeedback can indeed improve your brain’s frontal lobe functions.

Based on his 25 years of research, teaching, and clinical work at Johns Hopkins and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Fotuhi has integrated the latest discoveries in his field and designed a program of brain coaching and neurofeedback that targets the specific needs of his patients with ADD or ADHD.

Over the course of 12 weeks, your brain fitness coach will train you on how you can boost specific areas of your brain that are not at their peak. You will also receive a neurofeedback treatment program designed specifically for you. This program is based on the concept that children or adults who have difficulty with focusing or being organized often have multiple etiologies for their symptoms. In many cases, they may live in a stressful environment, may have low levels of vitamins, suffer from poor sleep, eat a diet that may be adversely affecting their brain function, or have low self-confidence.

We have had a high success rate in the past and as such feel confident that you too will achieve remarkable results in this program. We routinely do testing at baseline, 6 weeks, and 12 weeks for all of our patients. These objective findings show our patient become sharper, faster, and calmer. Our goal is for you and your family to become amazed by your memory and overall brain performance.

Brain Fitness Program Results

The manuscript with results from patients who completed the Brain Fitness Program was presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Washington DC, on July 18th, 2015. Below are the figures from this manuscript. They show that 84% of patients experienced high-impact improvements in their cognitive function, 97% had high-impact or moderate-impact improvements in their brain wave normalization. Among those who had before-and-after brain MRIs, 65% had remarkable reversal of atrophy (12%) or actual growth (53%) in the size of their hippocampus.
