Neurofeedback

MasterMind Neurofeedback LLC

321-710-1954 • mmnfb.com

MasterMind Neurofeedback LLC is changing the world one brain at a time. Nancy Fitzpatrick, managing partner of MasterMind, ensures that her company is dedicated to helping individuals, adolescents and children become happy and successful by reaching their true potential. Her goal is to demystify neurofeedback training, as it has 30 years of science to back its success. It gained some momentum in the medical community when, in 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics rated neurofeedback as a Level 1 “best support” intervention for ADHD, alongside medication and behavioral treatments. It continues to make strides as it successfully aids in the recovery of postconcussive syndrome and traumatic brain injury, which are both recurring news headlines. MasterMind uses state-of-the-art whole brain technology, which is an advanced neurotechnology that offers training to the brain, enabling it to function more efficiently. This form of neurofeedback is not a medical treatment but instead is a training for the brain. Therefore, it does not require a specific diagnosis, as it dances microsecond by microsecond with the brain, offering it the information it needs to reorganize itself. Training is drug-free, noninvasive and doesn’t push or pull the brain in any particular direction. Neurofeedback is simply a workout for the brain. Keeping it fit and flexible allows it to adapt with ease to the client’s ever-changing environment. Each appointment lasts about 45 minutes, and training is effortless, as the client sits in a comfortable chair with sensors attached to his or her head/ears and watches a movie or listens to music. When the system detects an inefficiency, it cues the brain by momentarily stopping the music and/or video. With continued training, the brain learns to correct and thus reorganize itself. MasterMind works with a wide variety of clients to treat the symptoms of many neurological-based conditions, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, autism, epilepsy, behavioral issues, etc. It also offers postconcussive training, as well as peak performance training for athletes. Neurofeedback provides positive results in conjunction with other modalities and as a stand-alone option.

Olympia Compounding Pharmacy is a national leader in compounded medications. Olympia opened a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility in June 2014. This new facility is also registered as a Food and Drug Administration outsourcing facility. As one of only a few outsourcing facilities in the state, Olympia can provide patient-specific prescriptions as well as “office use” medications for physician offices, clinics and hospitals. The Compounding Quality Act, which was signed into law in November 2013, stipulates that only an FDA-registered outsourcing facility can provide “office use” medications. Outsourcing facilities are held to a much higher standard of operation than traditional compounding pharmacies. The pharmacists at Olympia have more than 30 years of experience in bringing patients high-quality medications and excellent customer service. Patients can call to receive a free, personal consultation about any of their specialty medications. Because one size does not always fit all, Olympia’s experts consult with patients every day and help develop personalized, custom regimens. Olympia is a national leader in women’s health and bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical means the hormones that are used are an exact molecular match to hormones produced by the body. This is a safe, effective way to bring a woman’s body back into hormonal balance. Balanced hormones help women of all ages look and feel younger, stay slimmer and have more energy. Men’s health is another Olympia specialty. As men grow older, they may experience one or more age-related symptoms, such as low testosterone or erectile dysfunction. These conditions are easily correctable with proper treatment, and Olympia’s staff has the necessary expertise. In addition, being overweight affects men and women of all ages, but there is hope. Medical weight loss is a safe, effective way to lose weight. With medications like HCG and Sermorelin, tremendous success is being enjoyed by many. Olympia has the largest lyophilization facility in the eastern U.S., allowing HCG and Sermorelin to be compounded on-site, making it very cost-effective and high-quality. The pharmacy compounds B-12, vitamin B complex and fat-burning injections; topical medications such as pain, wound and bleaching creams; and other dermatologic treatments. The pharmacy also compounds small-animal medications. These compounds offer a safe, effective, easy-to-administer, inexpensive way for pets to get the medications they need. Olympia Pharmacy is conveniently located at the intersection of Turkey Lake and Conroy-Windermere roads, and next-business-day shipping is offered throughout all of Central Florida.
