What are Nutraceuticals?
Nutraceuticals are pharmaceutical-grade and standardised nutrients that can assist in treating or preventing disease, such as Omega-3 Fatty Acids (Fish Oils). The Perth Brain Centre has worked closely with Metagenics (Australia’s leading provider of quality practitioner-only natural medicines) to carefully select the most important Nutraceuticals for a range of conditions, backed by years of research.
Which Nutraceuticals Are Best?
Everyone is different, and some Nutraceuticals work better for some people more than others. In many cases people are advised to take a range of Nutraceuticals simply based upon their symptoms or diagnosis. This may not always result in the best possible results.
Research shows that information from QEEG Brain Scans can help predict response to medication (and hence assist in better treatment selection) for patients with behavioural disorders such as ADHD, Anxiety and Depression.
At The Perth Brain Centre we also use the information from QEEG Brain Scans to help select the best Nutraceuticals for an individual patient. For example, research shows some people with ADHD will get best results with Omega-3 Fatty Acids (Fish Oil) with a high EPA to DHA ratio, whereas for others with the same diagnosis (but with a different pattern of brain activity) the opposite is the case. QEEG Brain Scans provide this important information and permit targeted selection of Nutraceuticals - This is truly personalised treatment.
