Both palliative care and hospice care provide comfort. While palliative care can begin at diagnosis, and at the same time as treatment. Hospice care begins after treatment stops and it is clear that the person is not going to survive. Personal experiences showed me that this is a real and sad reality. Two phenomenon are happening here. Too much of "Self-fulfilling prophecies" and too little of placebo effects (Patch Adams).
Biofeedback like yoga exist 5000 years ago and the focus on the brain gave birth to neurofeedback less than 100 years. You may say its too new to be effective, well my friend, how old is your computer, TV, digital equipment... . As technology grew, like ultrasound, neurofeedback became a reality. Neuroplasticity can now be tracked, displayed and recorded.
Scenario 1: Palliative care - If you only knew that neurofeedback is a useful treatment
Scenari0 2: Hospice Care - If I told you that neurofeedback can ease emotional pain, improve sleep, depression for family members. For the patient, it is about acceptance, about fear, about anger and the list goes on. Neurofeedback can help this time to pass to it's end with lesser stress for all parties involved.
