Jean Alvarez shares her story of overcoming the neurological issues associated with cancer and cancer treatment – aka chemobrain – and how she used NeurOptimal® neurofeedback to overcome it.

NeurOptimal® helps both Kathy and Jonesy while Jonesy is being treated for cancer. Watch their story:

Chemo Brain is the unofficial term used by cancer patients and survivors to describe the memory and cognitive problems they experience as they undergo, or after they have completed, cancer treatment. Some people call it chemo brain fog.

Symptoms include:

  • Memory problems

  • Confusion

  • Difficulty concentrating, multitasking or learning new things

  • Fatigue

  • Short attention span

  • An overall feeling of mental murkiness

The effects of chemotherapy on the brain can cause disruptions to daily life and relationships, and it can make maintaining work and home life very challenging.
