“Anxiety and depression is almost gone. Neurocore was very helpful for my anxiety and stress.”

Linda C.Boca Raton Center, February 2019

“Having panic attacks a few times a day and wanted to try something outside of therapy. My anxiety is controllable and has been near nonexistent. A huge change.”

AnonymousGrandville Center, February 2019

“Anxiety and stress were active at the forefront of my daily life, and I wanted to add a tool to my toolkit to better manage both. I have experienced meaningful improvements, including the ability to publicly speak in front of hundreds and handle confrontational/stressful events with more in-the-moment mindfulness, including using deep breathing to calm and center.

At most, I expected to have another resource at my disposal during times of stress and worry. This has far exceeded my expectations. I notice a difference in everyday interactions – not just during anxiety/stress peaks. I have the ability to think about things in stride and not escalate my worry or concern beyond what the situation truly deserves. I truly didn’t expect to notice the small changes that make up the everyday. Everyone was very attentive and thoughtful in addressing any concerns/feedback.”

“I feel more confident to get my life back and go back to school without having a breakdown. I have my confidence back, happiness, my psychosis has disappeared, I have mental stability and my personality is back. It’s amazing.

If looking for a more natural substitute for medicine or another way to help better yourself I would recommend Neurocore I feel so much happier now and everyone is great to talk with, you feel welcomed. The environment is great so I had nothing bad overall to say.”

“It seemed like everything we tried from natural approaches to medicine worked a “little bit” but nothing really helped Ethan turn that corner to success. He had been on every medication available to him and still his teachers would ask if he was being followed by a medical professional or had a medical intervention…the PC version of ‘is this kid on meds?!’ Which he HAD been! Halfway through Neurocore, his teacher has noticed an improvement on his verbal responses and he’s getting more work done. YAY!

Ethan is now able to acknowledge and complete tasks the first time he is asked, if he chooses to…he’s still an 11-year-old boy. I no longer have to search for my child, who is hiding extremely well, before the school day starts because he is so anxious about “not getting it” at school. He smiles and laughs so much more now. I feel like I have my baby back!!”

“My son has suffered from ADD since 3rd grade. Drove by your office and I was curious by the name so I googled it and here we are. Best decision I ever made, it was hard to see him struggle so much before.

He is concentrating better and not getting mad like he used to for no reason. His attitude has changed so much since the second week of the program, that makes things easier on him and the rest of the family.”

Maria M.Boca Raton Center, February 2019

“I thought I was recovered from a bad bout of PTSD I had two years ago but I was very much depressed and anxious. I couldn’t sleep well and was lethargic. I was on a really high dose of antidepressants and suffering severely from the side effects.

Now I take no antidepressants at all. I sleep like a baby at night. I get so much more during the day. I feel anxious where there is a need to be anxious and it goes away as soon as the threat is resolved. Neurocore was the best decision I ever made, it completely changed my life. I wish I could be a Neurocore “Lifer” as I reacted so well to the program I would love to come every week for the rest of my life.”

Josselin S.Grand Rapids Center, January 2019

“I have been sleeping better, so my energy has increased.”

Luciane O.Boca Raton Center, January 2019

“Nathan is diagnosed with ADD and ODD. My main reason was to address his behavior outbursts when things didn’t go his way. He was extremely high anxiety and used both fight and flight as defense mechanisms to the extreme. He would run away, slam doors, break his toys. When I gave him several prompts to prepare him for the change, it would take up to an hour before he would accept it without incident.

Nathan is much more able to accept directives that he may not like. He does not have the extreme fight and flight reactions. He still will tantrum, but it is just slightly over the average 8 year old oppositional behavior. I can give him only 2-3 prompts over a maximum of 15 minutes in order for him to transition without incident. Even though his mood and impulse behaviors were my main issues, I was very pleased that his ability to attend to tasks improved as well, including his focus on homework without me sitting right with him, as well as 3rd grade level chapter books and not comic books only. His teacher at school commented on seeing a change as well in his attention.”

Theresa P.Sterling Heights Center, January 2019

“My life was chaotic to me. Lots of stress, anxiety, depression and sleepless nights. The level of anxiety and stress has decreased significantly. Depression no longer rules the day and I have been sleeping better. I practice meditation, eat better, and excessive more which I believe have helped as well.”

“I wanted a reduction in my ADHD symptoms. I am better able to accomplish daily tasks like paperwork and keeping appointments because I can maintain consistent focus. I am able to stay mentally present, but don’t get overwhelmed by thinking about the bigger picture of a situation. I also have noticed having less general anxiety, and I feel more stable and confident in myself. I bite my nails less as well.”

Breanne K.Grand Rapids Center, January 2019

“I came to neurocore for memory problems, anxiety and focus. My memory is so much better. I can actually remember peoples names better and information that people share with me. I don’t feel like my skin is crawling anymore with hyperactivity. I feel a lot more focused and calm overall. I can actually read and stay focused on what I am reading.

You have to give neurocore a try. It has changed my life for the better. I feel like a new person and I feel that I got my brain back, but a better version.”

“I’ve been suffering from depression, anxiety, and ADHD my whole life. Been on a lot of different medication and I just wanted to find a way to improve my mental health. I can see the changes in my anxiety and depression and ADHD. I can focus a lot better now and my depression is finally under control for the first time in years.

I’ve noticed a big improvement in my ADHD I can focus a lot more now. I can actually complete tasks now. Also a huge improvement with my depression. I don’t feel the dark cloud over me every day now and I also noticed my anxiety has improved a whole lot also. Everyone is very helpful and understanding and very informational”

“I was having focus issues and really struggling with getting enough sleep at night. Was also starting to struggle with anxiety. I now sleep through the night!! I no longer walk into a room and wonder what I needed to do in there! My anxiety is better and I have been given life long tools to help me through it.

I love walking into Neurocore, I am always greeted by name and with a smile. They always know right where you are in your program making you feel like a person and not just a number!! I LOVE my girl Zoe, so friendly and professional so helpful with providing useful information and she took great care of me when I wasn’t feeling my best! Teresa was such a friendly face to see and really provided some helpful tips for issues I was struggling with!”

Shelli K.Grandville Center, January 2019

“After an extremely stressful period and year, I was having a hard time coming out of the stressed and anxious phase… my mind and body weren’t recovering. (Menopause was not helping either) I react adversely to meds so I wanted to try something medication free. I heard great things about it. Although expensive for me, it was well worth it and worth not putting myself through the side effects of meds and long term ramifications of them.

I feel ready to face my life and challenges that come with life in general! I even feel confident enough to start a new job! I don’t wake up every morning with that jittery, fearful, awful feeling that I lived with for over a year… it’s awesome. The deep breathing is a lifesaver! And the tips on meditation also. Also, tips on supplements and lifestyle is all great stuff. Everyone here is so kind and personable as well as empathetic…so easy to talk to and relatable. Great tips on coping with issues too. I will miss my sessions. I feel like I made new friends!”

I believe that his personality has more of an opportunity to shine through now that he’s not as cloaked in anxiety. It is a commitment, but it is absolutely worth it!”

“I was at the lowest dark place in my life. I felt like my life was over. The depression anxiety ADHD was taking over me and I didn’t know what else to do.

I am able to go out and try different things, before I didn’t believe in myself. I have learned to relax better which has abled me to talk to my family better. I think everyone should have the chance to do this. Our lives are so much busier than before that we just need to learn how to breathe to relax. I cannot believe how much more I feel recharged when I breathe. I practice 4-5 times a day. I tell everyone about Neurocore. My granddaughter has come for her anxiety, and I couldn’t wait till she starts the program. Just the sparkle in her eye when she told me all about it was the best thing in the world. She was so relaxed after. My husband also has agreed to give it a try. I couldn’t be happier that I have shown him it can be done.”

Cheryl S.Sterling Heights Center, January 2019

“My life has changed drastically in regards to sleep. Before Neurocore I was sleeping an average of 3-3.5 hours per night. Now I am sleeping up to 6-7 hours a night. I haven’t been sleeping consistently for that amount of time in 2 years. It was like a light switch turned on right after my 20th session. I started falling asleep around 9pm at night instead of 3am and staying asleep all night long without waking up. I have also noticed that my body feels more relaxed when in stressful situations and feeling less anxious. Or if I do feel stressed it is for short periods of time 30min – 1 hour instead of 2-3 days.”

AnonymousGrand Rapids Center, December 2018

“I came to Neurocore because I was entering my third year in college and was already anxious about presentations and other work that I knew was to come. I knew I shouldn’t be worried about it, but I couldn’t really help the worrying. I had a cousin that went through the program and saw him become much less anxious and uptight, so I decided I wanted to see if Neurocore would be a solution for me. Anxiety isn’t something I only felt this year, but it was the most it has affected my life. It is something I knew I could handle but realized I shouldn’t be feeling like it was such a burden.

Neurocore helped me control my anxiety and it taught me how to change simple things in my daily routine that will prevent anxiety again in the future. I know I will face stressful situations many more times throughout my life, and now I have a foundation to prepare me to handle those occasions.

The whole experience is much less uncomfortable than I imagined. After day one, I felt self-conscious about having wires attached to my head, and if my screen shrunk it was embarrassing to me. But I realized that everyone was very kind and did not judge at all. At the same time, no one was so nice that I felt uncomfortable in the opposite way.”

AnonymousGrand Rapids Center, December 2018

“As a person with Narcolepsy, I was struggling a lot with fatigue and low energy. I also had impulse control difficulties and pretty severe depression.

Now, I know better coping skills and better lifestyle habits. When I implement the recommended lifestyle changes including regular exercise and good sleep hygiene, I do much better. I get better sleep which improves my Narcolepsy symptoms and I sleep much less during the day, allowing me to live life more. Because I can do more, my Depression also improves.

I would recommend Neurocore. Its important to keep in mind that to see real dramatic improvement, you not only need to attend sessions and do neurofeedback, but also put in the effort on your end to follow the lifestyle changes Neurocore recommends along with it.”

“Help with test anxiety and perform better in sports and standardized exams.

It helped me with the symptoms of anxiety and depression. I don’t have panic attacks during performance.”

“When starting Neurocore I was taking Adderall and had recently started taking Zoloft. I have officially stopped taking Adderall and feel ready to start weaning off of Zoloft. I feel calmer and more balanced. I get along really well with the clinicians and technicians that treat me like a normal person. After a few sessions getting a breathing belt is not scary, touching my ears is not scary, I just want to get to it. I really appreciated those who just talked to me about the day or about the movie rather than acting like everything was a huge deal.

Shelby is the best! She has a great personality that feels very personable and relatable right away. I really looked forward to my sessions when she was working!”

Nicole B.Grand Rapids Center, December 2018

“I had high levels of stress and anxiety, on top of severe depression. I couldn’t seem to get out of the chronic funk I was in and couldn’t get rid of the negative black cloud that followed me everywhere. I had been looking for a job for 2 years, with no luck, which only put me in a more depressed state every time I didn’t get a job I interviewed for. I was screaming and snapping at people when things got to be too much for me, and nobody liked being around me.

I find myself singing, which I hadn’t done in a very long time. I am totally amazed at the turnaround of my life, thanks to Neurocore. Apparently, it has helped put a more positive cloud around me because I have gotten 3 jobs in the past month, and just got an interview for a job with the Federal Government! Things don’t get to me as easily as they did before, and I am forever grateful! I also noticed my memory has improved, which is an awesome side benefit.

If you feel like your life is out of control, feel depressed, or just can’t find anything good going on in your life, Neurocore is exactly what you need. I feel like I’m much more in control of my emotions and my life.”

Sandi W.Grand Rapids Center, December 2018

“I can fall asleep much easier now and my anxiety has decreased drastically. I have been able to make new friends very quickly now and I can think inside my head without having to talk out loud. My outlook on life has improved a ton too, I no longer lie in bed in the morning without the ability to move from my depression. I am significantly happier with my life now than I was before.

This is a great program that takes an equal amount of effort from the patient as well as the service providers. They are all very nice and helpful and make me feel welcome at their center. They know me by name and are skilled in carrying on conversations, which has helped me in my own interaction with others outside of the program!”

Kaleb W.Grandville Center, December 2018

“I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious with work and life. Lacked focus and motivation at work and was seeing difficulties with memory. Felt very annoyed with my co-workers and my family over very silly and inconsequential things. Needed to figure out what was going on to make me feel like this.

I have better focus and drive. My sleep has gotten much better (partially due to now having a C-PAP machine). I have been shown better strategies for improving my memory. I am feeling much more patient, less annoyed and have a higher sense of overall calmness, focus and purpose. Starting to do things and set new goals for myself that I never would have even considered 6 months ago before I started the program. Just generally feel “cleaned up” in my head.

The Social Workers that I have had the pleasure of meeting with a Neurocore have been so pleasant, patient and interested in my life and progress in all of the areas that we talk about (Sleep, Breathing, Nutrition, Exercise). They have inspired me to try new things, set different strategies and both short and long-term goals for making incremental improvements in these very important categories of life. I have connected well with them and will miss the regular interaction to share my small victories and advances in my life and well-being.”

“I came to Neurocore because I realized that despite seeking help from psychiatrists and neurologists, the medicines I was given were only a band-aid, and I was unable to get to the root of the problem. I couldn’t sleep through the night, I had debilitating anxiety, and panic attacks were a normal occurrence for me. I felt out of control and uncomfortable in my own body and mind.

My life has improved dramatically since I started my Neurocore treatment. I sleep peacefully through the night. I am able to face mental challenges with more ease, as resulted through successfully sitting for an 8-hour exam that I was unable to complete before Neurocore. I experience less headaches overall, and no longer feel debilitated as a victim to my emotions. Neurocore has been amazing for me! I have improved so much. Everyone who works here is so accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful. I would recommend Neurocore to anyone I know. It has made remarkable changes in my life that I didn’t even know were possible.”

“I wanted to find a good way to treat depression and anxiety without medication. I do feel less anxious, less prone to panic, and I am starting to find it easier not to think negatively, or to keep myself from giving up on life. The Neurocore program itself was not that difficult. It can be very helpful, so it’s worth sticking through to the end.

I found the clinicians to be extremely helpful, friendly, and courteous. They listened well to my needs and concerns, and I felt that they truly cared about my wellbeing. They were more than willing to do what they could to help me achieve greater balance and overall health. I felt that I could comfortably conversate with them, and express my needs and concerns. I found Shelby to be particularly helpful, but every one of them made me feel welcome and cared for. It was a pleasure consulting with them.”

“I went through a very stressful time in my life. I had been under chronic stress for many years. I had been diagnosed with Bipolar II with anxiety. I was prescribed medication for the symptom. I started seeing a psychotherapist too. This treatment for symptoms was for about two years. I was making little progress. I had known about Neurocore for many years and thought about seeking treatment. I was making little progress with medication and therapy.

I decided to seek out Neurocore treatment. I made significant improvement with all the symptoms in less time than the medication and psychotherapy. My psychiatrist was shocked at my improvement.

Calmer, more focused, more energy, not too high or too low, can move from task to task and complete tasks, planning and organization, cognitive reasoning. Everything about Neurocore has been a great experience the staff and the results. Nuerocore has been more than a game changer, it has been a life changer. I have not felt this mentally/emotionally healthy in a very long time.

Awesome job by the staff and the Neurocore itself. I would reach into my pocket and pay for the treatment in a heartbeat if my insurance would not cover the treatment. I would also recommend that to anybody I know. Well worth the time and money. Made significant improvements in all areas of treatment. The improvements were achieved in less time than treatment with medication and psychotherapy. Psychiatrist was very impressed with my progress”

Stephen R.Grand Rapids Center, November 2018

“Much much improvement. Teacher said that he has some focus issues but nothing that is a problem. It is almost a ritual. He is having a great year so far and is performing well at school. He seems more confident at drop off. No tears. He has even taken full ownership of homework and study time and doing a fantastic job. No reminders from mom and dad anymore. So much growth since this time last year.”

“For several years, Hunter has struggled with ADHD signs and symptoms both at home and at school. So when it was becoming very evident that his medication was not a long-term option to help Hunter in his day to day life – we sought out objective testing and non-medication based treatment to help him overcome the troubles that come from having ADHD.

With the treatment at Neurocore, not only has Hunter’s attention and behavior have improved but so has his grades at school and his impulsive decisions as well! So thanks to these improvements, it has also helped decrease the stress and tension between myself, Hunter, and his father as well!

It has been a great overall quality of life with Hunter and any of those that interact frequently with Hunter as well! One of the most impressed with his overall positive changes (outside of his intermediate family) is the teachers that had him in their classes both last year and this year have noticed a vast positive changes and a few had asked at parent-teacher conference if his medication was adjusted or if his improved behavior was due to maturity over the summer so you can imagine the look on their face when I told them about how Neurocore had helped Hunter without his medication being altered at all.

The staff has been excellent in communicating with myself, Hunter and his Dad. They made this process easy to understand and worked with us on each level every step of the way.”

“My son has suffered from ADD since 3rd grade. Drove by your office and I was curious by the name so I googled it and here we are. Best decision I ever made, it was hard to see him struggle so much before.

He is concentrating better and not getting mad like he used to for no reason. His attitude has changed so much since the second week of the program, that makes things easier on him and the rest of the family.”

“I can actually think properly it worked out the muscles in my brain for focus and also has taught me to automatically breathe a certain way which can calm my anxiety down naturally and keep my brain stable. I feel more confident to get my life back and go back to school without having a breakdown. I have my confidence back, happiness, my psychosis has disappeared, I have mental stability and my personality is back. It’s amazing. I’m grateful for coming here.

If looking for a more natural substitute for medicine or another way to help better yourself I would recommend Neurocore I feel so much happier now and everyone is great to talk with, you feel welcomed.”

“I thought I was recovered from a bad bout of PTSD I had two years ago but I was very much depressed and anxious. I couldn’t sleep well and was lethargic. I was on a really high dose of antidepressants and suffering severely from the side effects.

Now I take no antidepressants at all. I sleep like a baby at night. I get so much more during the day. I feel anxious where there is a need to be anxious and it goes away as soon as the threat is resolved. Neurocore was the best decision I ever made, it completely changed my life. I wish I could be a Neurocore “Lifer” as I reacted so well to the program I would love to come every week for the rest of my life.”

“Nathan is diagnosed with ADD and ODD. My main reason was to address his behavior outbursts when things didn’t go his way. He was extremely high anxiety and used both fight and flight as defense mechanisms to the extreme. He would run away, slam doors, break his toys. When I gave him several prompts to prepare him for the change, it would take up to an hour before he would accept it without incident.

Nathan is much more able to accept directives that he may not like. He does not have the extreme fight and flight reactions. He still will tantrum, but it is just slightly over the average 8 year old oppositional behavior. I can give him only 2-3 prompts over a maximum of 15 minutes in order for him to transition without incident. Even though his mood and impulse behaviors were my main issues, I was very pleased that his ability to attend to tasks improved as well, including his focus on homework without me sitting right with him, as well as 3rd grade level chapter books and not comic books only. His teacher at school commented on seeing a change as well in his attention.”

“I wanted a reduction in my ADHD symptoms. I am better able to accomplish daily tasks like paperwork and keeping appointments because I can maintain consistent focus. I am able to stay mentally present, but don’t get overwhelmed by thinking about the bigger picture of a situation.

I don’t feel like my skin is crawling anymore with hyperactivity. I feel a lot more focused and calm overall. I can actually read and stay focused on what I am reading.

You have to give Neurocore a try. It has changed my life for the better. I feel like a new person and I feel that I got my brain back, but a better version.”

I no longer walk into a room and wonder what I needed to do in there! My anxiety is better and I have been given life long tools to help me through it.

I love walking into Neurocore, I am always greeted by name and with a smile. They always know right where you are in your program making you feel like a person and not just a number!! I LOVE my girl Zoe, so friendly and professional so helpful with providing useful information and she took great care of me when I wasn’t feeling my best!

“After an extremely stressful period and year, I was having a hard time coming out of the stressed and anxious phase… my mind and body weren’t recovering. (Menopause was not helping either) I react adversely to meds so I wanted to try something medication free. I heard great things about it. Although expensive for me, it was well worth it and worth not putting myself through the side effects of meds and long term ramifications of them.

I feel ready to face my life and challenges that come with life in general! I even feel confident enough to start a new job! I don’t wake up every morning with that jittery, fearful, awful feeling that I lived with for over a year… it’s awesome. The deep breathing is a lifesaver! And the tips on meditation also. Also, tips on supplements and lifestyle is all great stuff. Everyone here is so kind and personable as well as empathetic…so easy to talk to and relatable. Great tips on coping with issues too. I will miss my sessions. I feel like I made new friends!”

“I was at the lowest dark place in my life. I felt like my life was over. The depression anxiety ADHD was taking over me and I didn’t know what else to do.

I am able to go out and try different things, before I didn’t believe in myself. I have learned to relax better which has abled me to talk to my family better. I think everyone should have the chance to do this. Our lives are so much busier than before that we just need to learn how to breathe to relax. I cannot believe how much more I feel recharged when I breathe. I practice 4-5 times a day. I tell everyone about Neurocore. My granddaughter has come for her anxiety, and I couldn’t wait till she starts the program. Just the sparkle in her eye when she told me all about it was the best thing in the world. She was so relaxed after. My husband also has agreed to give it a try. I couldn’t be happier that I have shown him it can be done.”

Cheryl S.Sterling Heights Center, January 2019

“My life has changed drastically in regards to sleep. Before Neurocore I was sleeping an average of 3-3.5 hours per night. Now I am sleeping up to 6-7 hours a night. I haven’t been sleeping consistently for that amount of time in 2 years. It was like a light switch turned on right after my 20th session. I started falling asleep around 9pm at night instead of 3am and staying asleep all night long without waking up. I have also noticed that my body feels more relaxed when in stressful situations and feeling less anxious. Or if I do feel stressed it is for short periods of time 30min – 1 hour instead of 2-3 days.”

Afiel S.West Bloomfield Center, December 2018

“I came to Neurocore because I was entering my third year in college and was already anxious about presentations and other work that I knew was to come. I knew I shouldn’t be worried about it, but I couldn’t really help the worrying. I had a cousin that went through the program and saw him become much less anxious and uptight, so I decided I wanted to see if Neurocore would be a solution for me. Anxiety isn’t something I only felt this year, but it was the most it has affected my life. It is something I knew I could handle but realized I shouldn’t be feeling like it was such a burden.

Neurocore helped me control my anxiety and it taught me how to change simple things in my daily routine that will prevent anxiety again in the future. I know I will face stressful situations many more times throughout my life, and now I have a foundation to prepare me to handle those occasions.

The whole experience is much less uncomfortable than I imagined. After day one, I felt self-conscious about having wires attached to my head, and if my screen shrunk it was embarrassing to me. But I realized that everyone was very kind and did not judge at all. At the same time, no one was so nice that I felt uncomfortable in the opposite way.”

“As a person with Narcolepsy, I was struggling a lot with fatigue and low energy. I also had impulse control difficulties and pretty severe depression.

Now, I know better coping skills and better lifestyle habits. When I implement the recommended lifestyle changes including regular exercise and good sleep hygiene, I do much better. I get better sleep which improves my Narcolepsy symptoms and I sleep much less during the day, allowing me to live life more. Because I can do more, my Depression also improves.

I would recommend Neurocore. Its important to keep in mind that to see real dramatic improvement, you not only need to attend sessions and do neurofeedback, but also put in the effort on your end to follow the lifestyle changes Neurocore recommends along with it.”

Kristen K.Grand Rapids Center, December 2018

“When starting Neurocore I was taking Adderall and had recently started taking Zoloft. I have officially stopped taking Adderall and feel ready to start weaning off of Zoloft. I feel calmer and more balanced. I get along really well with the clinicians and technicians that treat me like a normal person. After a few sessions getting a breathing belt is not scary, touching my ears is not scary, I just want to get to it. I really appreciated those who just talked to me about the day or about the movie rather than acting like everything was a huge deal.

Shelby is the best! She has a great personality that feels very personable and relatable right away. I really looked forward to my sessions when she was working!”

“I had high levels of stress and anxiety, on top of severe depression. I couldn’t seem to get out of the chronic funk I was in and couldn’t get rid of the negative black cloud that followed me everywhere. I had been looking for a job for 2 years, with no luck, which only put me in a more depressed state every time I didn’t get a job I interviewed for. I was screaming and snapping at people when things got to be too much for me, and nobody liked being around me.

I find myself singing, which I hadn’t done in a very long time. I am totally amazed at the turnaround of my life, thanks to Neurocore. Apparently, it has helped put a more positive cloud around me because I have gotten 3 jobs in the past month, and just got an interview for a job with the Federal Government! Things don’t get to me as easily as they did before, and I am forever grateful! I also noticed my memory has improved, which is an awesome side benefit.

If you feel like your life is out of control, feel depressed, or just can’t find anything good going on in your life, Neurocore is exactly what you need. I feel like I’m much more in control of my emotions and my life.”

“I can fall asleep much easier now and my anxiety has decreased drastically. I have been able to make new friends very quickly now and I can think inside my head without having to talk out loud. My outlook on life has improved a ton too, I no longer lie in bed in the morning without the ability to move from my depression. I am significantly happier with my life now than I was before.

This is a great program that takes an equal amount of effort from the patient as well as the service providers. They are all very nice and helpful and make me feel welcome at their center. They know me by name and are skilled in carrying on conversations, which has helped me in my own interaction with others outside of the program!”

Kaleb W.Grandville Center, December 2018

“I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious with work and life. Lacked focus and motivation at work and was seeing difficulties with memory. Felt very annoyed with my co-workers and my family over very silly and inconsequential things. Needed to figure out what was going on to make me feel like this.

I have better focus and drive. My sleep has gotten much better (partially due to now having a C-PAP machine). I have been shown better strategies for improving my memory. I am feeling much more patient, less annoyed and have a higher sense of overall calmness, focus and purpose. Starting to do things and set new goals for myself that I never would have even considered 6 months ago before I started the program. Just generally feel “cleaned up” in my head.

The Social Workers that I have had the pleasure of meeting with a Neurocore have been so pleasant, patient and interested in my life and progress in all of the areas that we talk about (Sleep, Breathing, Nutrition, Exercise). They have inspired me to try new things, set different strategies and both short and long-term goals for making incremental improvements in these very important categories of life. I have connected well with them and will miss the regular interaction to share my small victories and advances in my life and well-being.”

“I came to Neurocore because I realized that despite seeking help from psychiatrists and neurologists, the medicines I was given were only a band-aid, and I was unable to get to the root of the problem. I couldn’t sleep through the night, I had debilitating anxiety, and panic attacks were a normal occurrence for me. I felt out of control and uncomfortable in my own body and mind.

My life has improved dramatically since I started my Neurocore treatment. I sleep peacefully through the night. I am able to face mental challenges with more ease, as resulted through successfully sitting for an 8-hour exam that I was unable to complete before Neurocore. I experience less headaches overall, and no longer feel debilitated as a victim to my emotions. Neurocore has been amazing for me! I have improved so much, I no longer have to take medication to sleep. Everyone who works here is so accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful. I would recommend Neurocore to anyone I know. It has made remarkable changes in my life that I didn’t even know were possible.”

“I went through a very stressful time in my life. I had been under chronic stress for many years. I had been diagnosed with Bipolar II with anxiety. I was prescribed medication for the symptom. I started seeing a psychotherapist too. This treatment for symptoms was for about two years. I was making little progress. I had known about Neurocore for many years and thought about seeking treatment. I was making little progress with medication and therapy.

I decided to seek out Neurocore treatment. I made significant improvement with all the symptoms in less time than the medication and psychotherapy. My psychiatrist was shocked at my improvement.

Calmer, more focused, more energy, not too high or too low, can move from task to task and complete tasks, planning and organization, cognitive reasoning. Everything about Neurocore has been a great experience the staff and the results. Nuerocore has been more than a game changer, it has been a life changer. I have not felt this mentally/emotionally healthy in a very long time.

Awesome job by the staff and the Neurocore itself. I would reach into my pocket and pay for the treatment in a heartbeat if my insurance would not cover the treatment. I would also recommend that to anybody I know. Well worth the time and money. Made significant improvements in all areas of treatment. The improvements were achieved in less time than treatment with medication and psychotherapy. Psychiatrist was very impressed with my progress.”

“For several years, Hunter has struggled with ADHD signs and symptoms both at home and at school. So when it was becoming very evident that his medication was not a long-term option to help Hunter in his day to day life- we sought out objective testing and non-medication based treatment to help him overcome the troubles that come from having ADHD .

With the treatment at Neurocore, not only has Hunter’s attention and behavior have improved but so has his grades at school and his impulsive decisions as well! So thanks to these improvements, it has also helped decrease the stress and tension between myself, Hunter, and his father as well!

It has been a great overall quality of life with Hunter and any of those that interact frequently with Hunter as well! One of the most impressed with his overall positive changes (outside of his intermediate family) is the teachers that had him in their classes both last year and this year have noticed a vast positive changes and a few had asked at parent-teacher conference if his medication was adjusted or if his improved behavior was due to maturity over the summer so you can imagine the look on their face when I told them about how Neurocore had helped Hunter without his medication being altered at all.

The staff has been excellent in communicating with myself, Hunter and his Dad. They made this process easy to understand and worked with us on each level every step of the way.”
