Our Philosophy

The brain. We at NIb3 know that the brain and the nervous system are the mediators, regulators and integrators of all body functions and states of mind. The brain has absolute control over each organ and tissue function, and is in charge of coordinating and maintaining every movement, heartbeat, thought, intestinal secretion, hormonal fluctuation and every feeling that we have, using more than 100 billion neurons, and at least 5-7 times more glial cells, found in both sides (hemispheres) of the brain.

Clinical and sub-clinical dysfunctions in this great and most complex organ can lead to deviation from health, ending with psychological, physiological and functional disorders and diseases; ultimately resulting in a poor quality of life.

Until recently, the brain was considered a static, hardwired and rigid organ. It was believed that the neurons we have at birth were finite, and died off with age. Developments in neuroscience, neurophysiology and neuroimaging have allowed us to realize and have proved that this is not the case at all. In fact, the brain changes itself on a moment-to-moment basis (Neuroplasticity). Scientists already know today, that the brain can generate new cells (Neurogenesis), form new connections (‘What fire together – Wire together’) and break existing connections (‘Use it or Lose it’ principle).

We at NIb3, decided to take advantage of the findings above, and to form a unique program, including but not limited to, a non-drug, and non-invasive treatment plan, that assist in the restoration of brain health and function.

First, we target the tissue integrity and the neuro-chemical state, through specific nutritional interventions, and optimization protocols of blood flow, oxygen delivery and energy supply to the brain.

Then we teach the neural networks how, and when to talk to each other, through specific sensory training, motor re-education, feedback stimulation, cognitive re-construction strategies and brainwave stabilization. We balance brain areas within the different lobes of each hemisphere, known as intra-hemispheric tune-up, and we make sure that both sides of the brain work in an integrated, balanced and efficient way with each other, known as inter-hemispheric coherency.

NIb3 knows and research is showing that deficiencies in brain metabolism are the underlying causes of many neuro-developmental disorders such as ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, learning disabilities etc., neurological disorders such as dizziness and imbalance, Dementia, Insomnia, Schizophrenia, etc., and psychological disorders such as depression, OCD, Bipolar disorder, anxiety-panic, etc., as well as Chronic Pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and motion sickness.

With NIb3 treatment we turn these deficiencies into efficiency, and ultimately, balance and health.

Our body.  A complex machine comprised of 206 bones, 160 muscles and more than a dozen organs. The brain and nervous system control all the above, mainly through the spinal cord with its 31 pairs of spinal nerves (approximately), one on each side.

The spinal cord is protected by vertebrae (segments), which is organized in the same architecture like the brain, although in a more primitive design.  It is a continuation of the brain stem, which closely interacts with all brain areas and anatomically connects the spinal cord with the brain.

The highway of communication of the spinal cord works in the following ways:

  • Efferent (brain to body) motor signal (voluntary and non voluntary muscle contraction),
  • Afferent (body to brain) sensory signal (pain, temperature, vibration etc.),
  • or the more sophisticated one, the Autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls all automatic, sub- consciousness body functions such as heart rate, liver function, vessel diameter, kidney function, temperature, sweat rate and digestive function, just to name a few.

We at NIb3 perceive the body as one unit, one super-system, which keeps integrating and constantly working to maintain physiological and chemical balance; constantly propelling the body towards health.

We consider stress, especially chronic stress, sensory stimulation deficiencies such as consistent pain, low visual/auditory/smell stimulation, not enough gravity stimulation, lack of human touch, etc. and motor activation deprivation that can occur during human development or as a result of leading a sedentary lifestyle, as ailing the body and mind instead of healing it. This then causes the body to move away from its desired state of balance and health.

We use appropriate, specific and evidence-based interventions in order to stabilize the autonomic system, stimulate the sensory matrix and coordinate the motor functions.

We take a careful look at the major sub-units of this breathtaking, highly evolved super system, by first considering the heart, respiratory system, liver, kidneys, thyroid gland, and digestive system. Combined with analysing blood tests and urinalysis, we get a clear vision of the genesis of your ailment and can then help you on your path to healing.

We begin your body’s balancing and process towards healing through teaching depth and rate of breathing, stabilizing awareness and neural input to the heart, and coordinating cardiovascular and respiratory coherence, all done by scientific-based methods, top hi-tech equipment at our clinic, and low-tech simple-to-use training at home.

NIb3 will help guide you in the integration of your Brain, Body, and Being towards balance and overall health.

When the Brain and Body, are balanced, then, and only then, it is possible to have a balanced Being. An integration of the balanced brain and the coherent being with a beating, tuned-up body, will yell a state of strong and accurate mind-body connection.

Distinguishing us from other living creatures, the mind and the consciousness are humanity’s enigma. Science is just beginning to understand how the mind, emotions, thoughts, intentions and feelings, are closely inter-related to our overall health. Top universities (MIT, Stanford, Harvard and many more) are now dedicating many resources and money to the study and understanding of how positive thinking, practicing compassion and mindfulness, meditating, increasing awareness and appreciation effect well-being and overall health.

Research shows that a healthy state of being and consciousness has many positive results on overall health such as: an increase white blood cell count, improvement in immune cell functionality, stabilization of brainwaves, improvements regarding depression and anxiety, diminished chronic pain, decreased systemic inflammation tone, a decrease in blood pressure, and improvements in cardiovascular health, just to name a few.

At NIb3 we consider ‘Being’ as the link that completes our philosophy with regards to wholistic, non-drug, and integrated healthcare. We employ evidence-based protocols and interventions that are used in modern pain clinics and cancer centres, and in the mental health field.

NIb3 will help guide you in the integration of your Brain, Body, and Being towards balance and overall health.

Our Treatment Plans
Testimonial
I was initially reluctant to try biofeedback. After trying a few rounds of traditional therapy with very little improvement I was referred to Shai. My situation was somewhat experimental and uncharted water for both Shai and myself. I was impressed by the amount of time Shai invested learning about my condition and developing a targeted treatment plan. His concern and eagerness to find a solution were genuine and obvious.
