Neurofeedback As A Treatment For Mental Issues
Hi, I would like to ask you guys for your advice and recommendation about buying full EEG equipemnt with proper software primarily intended for treating my anxiety problems.
My brief background, I have tried over 35 different medications, lots of supplements, nootropics and I also went through various types of therapies (for example CBT, CBT hypnotherapy, group therapy...) but unfortunately I have not reached any measurable progress in my treatment yet. For 10 years of my treatment, I have visited almost 4-5 psychiatrists and I ended up at the same point where I started at the beginning .
Now, I would like to try some non-invasive and non-drug treatment approach and EEG neurofeedback seems like good option, even though it is quite expensive and I am still not sure how much it could help with my social phobia and avoidant personality disorder (my level of anxiety currently bordering on isolation so its quite bad now). I also suffering from depression, GAD, slight OCD (mostly in a way of perfectionism) and some cognitive issues as a result of long-term benzodiazepine use.
I am currently considering about trying the TAGsnyc protocol (especially since I have read some positive reports on anxiety). I would like to ask you for your opinion, what type of device would you advice me for these problems and if I would decided to go with Q-wiz amplifier, Electrodes, Bioexplorer, TAGsync (basiclly I am considering to buy the whole bundle for 1,934 bucks from mindsupplies.com), I really wonder to know, if this unit and operating software is too hard, too complicated to operate for a person who is basically a beginner in the field of EEG neurofeedback (so far, I have only tried the Emwave2 and CES device - David Delight Pro) ?
I have something over 2000 euros set aside, but unfortunately I do not have any experiences with this type of devices. However if there is any promising chance that I could benefit from using it for my condition I am determined to leran how to operate it!
I was also considering to get Neuroptimal rental system for 700 dollars (without shipping fees), but I decided to rather invest my money to my own device without any time limit. I also read the TAGsync is more powerful in comparison to Neuroptimal.
Thanks in advance for any advice that you could provide
