Neurofeedback has generated enormous interest recently, especially in regards to ameliorating the effects of the immune system involved in disorders like Lyme’s Disease. Although neurofeedback itself does not mitigate the disease processes that are responsible for immune system involved disorders, it can be quite helpful at restoring functional levels in affected individuals. In particlar, sleep disturbance, mood disturbance, and increased fatigue, as well as poor concentratin and diminished attentional abilities, all show remarkable restoration with effective neurofeedback. However, neurofeedback with immune system disorders is an even more recent development than neurofeedback with other more “traditional” disorders such as attention deficit disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse.
