Welcome everyone to another edition of the Doctor’s Note where we talk about what’s on our minds when it comes to your health.  

It is no secret that Performance Medicine targets the root cause of disease, and because of that I find myself connected to a sea of people who share the same mindset. Kristy Schultz, with Neurogen Brain Balancing, is one of those people. I met Kristy at a conference for the Children’s Defense Fund in Johnson City, TN and within the first few moments of introduction, we landed on common ground, the root cause!  

Neurogen Brain Balancing, founded in 2018 by Marine Sergeant Gregory L. Gillispie (Ret), helps people who have had injury or stress to the brain which has led to depression, chronic pain, ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, lack of focus, and more. Neurofeedback (a form of biofeedback) and brain stimulation has the ability to interrupt unhealthy brain wave patterns and stimulate new, healthy ones. Like rebooting a computer, it stimulates the brain to reset itself. 

I encourage you to watch the video to see Kristy demonstrate how she uses the EEG leads in different positions for different conditions. Her success stories inspire and encourage. I know healers when I see one, and Kristy Schultz is a healer!  


  • Neurofeedback has been around since the sixties. There are two different types of neurofeedback: active and passive. Active is where the person is actively training their brain. They’re  listening to something. They’re watching something. They’re actively doing something to train their brain. Passive is where we use EEG’s (electroencephalogram). Neurogen is passive. 
  • A typical session begins with the placement of sensors on the head and neck to measure the electrical activity in the brain using an EEG unit (electroencephalogram). The EEG unit transmits signals to the computer, which responds by sending low-intensity pulses back through the EEG unit to the brain, interrupting irregular patterns, and stimulating new healthy ones. 
  • The most common conditions Neurogen treats is PTSD, insomnia, autism, anxiety, and depression. When people have some of these struggles, the brain gets into a poor loop. The low impulse electricity of the EEG’s guides the brainwaves into healthy patterns. It’s all about guiding the brain into healthy patterns again! 
  • Ideal candidates for neurofeedback are veterans, or anyone who has struggled with PTSD, anxiety, depression, or sleep issues, and don’t want to be on a lot of medications. Neurogen also uses an academic protocol for those who want that calm focus we always talk about. 

Brain health is so important! So many of us worry about our hearts when our brain controls literally everything: thoughts, memory, emotions, touch, motor skills, vision, breathing, temperature, hunger, all the things that make us human. 

In my office, we’re seeing more and more people with symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, people recovering from strokes, battling insomnia, struggling with ADHD, etc. After spending time with Kristy Schultz, I believe Neurogen Brain Balancing can be another helpful tool.  

Stay educated. Stay healthy.

Till next week.
