At Train Your Brain MD we are committed to helping the whole person- often this requires assessment, or assessment review, medication review and dietary assessment.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is an evidence-based training tool shown to improve cognition, attention, focus, memory, speech/language, executive functioning, comprehension, as well as motor & sensory skills. Though seemingly unrelated, the fundamental cause of these difficulties is the same…timing. Timing is a "jack of all trades" mechanism that manifests itself in sleep cycles, speech patterns, ability to attend over time and overall efficacy of brain communication. IM improves timing in the brain in an organized, systematic, flexible and engaging format. Click on the logo to the right to read more about IM.
In today’s frenetic world of specialists, a comprehensive overview of the patient is often not completed. We offer an evaluation which reviews: cognitive and academic testing, psychiatric and medical histories, diet and possible reactions to vaccines. When a clinician focuses solely on symptoms and not the root causes, medications are often over prescribed and not effective. Dr. Furey can consult with you and your treatment providers to maximize your road to recovery.
The brain/gut connection is critical for maintaining a healthy life. What we eat can mean the difference between a brain functioning for multiple hours vs. a brain that is exhausted after minutes. Proper nutrition is vitally important for promoting neural change and growth. Through counseling and guidance, Train Your Brain MD can help stabilize mood, reduce anxiety and optimize your gut health so that “brain training” will proceed in the best possible way.
