How the Brain Works

By 1 May 2015September 16th, 2021No Comments

Scientists have long wondered how the brain works. They have spent countless hours studying the brain to unlock the secrets on how the brain works, and while there are still many unanswered questions, there are also a host of questions that have been answered and those answers have led many therapists, counselors, and psychiatric professionals to help their clients overcome a number of ailments.

When the brain isn’t functioning properly

While most people don’t know how the brain works, or they don’t care much about the intricacies of it, it’s a good idea to at least have a basic working knowledge about how the brain works. This information can serve a number of purposes, including being able to accept why something is transpiring in one’s life, how to become more patient with themselves or the people around them, and even to help adjust certain patterns within a lifestyle to accommodate different aspects about how the brain works for that individual as opposed to another person.

When the brain isn’t functioning properly, if it has suffered an injury, illness, or has been altered through drugs or alcohol, for example, then there will be ramifications in other aspects of the person’s life. Knowing how the brain works, from its chemical makeup and dependence, to the electrical components, will offer the individual the ability to step forward, step up, and take charge of the issues and overcome them with the help of qualified professionals.

How the brain works is a complicated topic

Understanding how the brain works would take hundreds of hours to truly explain and understand. Every minute detail about how the brain works is not that necessary, of course, so this article won’t go into any excruciating detail. However, let’s discuss the basics of how the brain works.

How the brain works, of course, isn’t a cut and dried answer, but more of an evolving, moving entity. You can’t think of how the brain works as simple, concrete functions, like a computer. With a computer, all of its functions are yeses and nos. With the brain, there is a series of processes that take place, a combination of movement and symmetry between chemical and electrical impulses.

The brain uses multiple regions and functions to solve the most basic issues and much more for more complicated functions. Therefore, when trying to explain or understand how the brain works, one can become overwhelmed with the entire process.

Treating conditions of the brain

When talking about how the brain works in correlation to treatment options for any number of conditions, we are talking about dealing with these issues on a behavioral as well as a chemical level. There are a number of (perhaps far too many) doctors that will treat behavioral issues as chemical issues within the brain. The pharmaceutical companies have made billions of dollars masking the problems that underlie many of people’s most basic troubles in their life.

Medications often do little more than alter a simple chemical interaction within the brain. Some will work wonders for people, but unless the underlying cause of the issue is address through counseling and therapy, then at some point the brain will adapt to the new chemical intrusion and then the  brain will require a different composition to deal with the issues at hand.

Traditional medicine preaches chemicals before substantive conditioning. This may work into the basic premise of how the brain works, but on a deeper, more meaningful and lasting level, it won’t do enough to help a person overcome the challenges and hardships that he or she may face during his or her life.

A different approach

It’s important to understand the brain. Of that, there is no doubt, but at the same token, not every single person is the same, nor will their behaviors, chemical makeup, or reaction to certain approaches be identical. As every brain is different, each one needs the direct, personal knowledge and understanding to help the individual deal with the obstacles that he or she faces in life.

Dr. Fleming’s approach is a one-on-one design. The basic idea that you can lump groups of people into the same category and treat them all the same and have the same, positive results, is absurd. When you want to overcome hardships in your life, whether they are emotional, physical, or psychological, the one-on-one approach will always reap the best results.

Dr. Fleming’s solution:

Dr. Fleming has long been working on studying how the brain works and through his efforts, has unlocked a number of incredible keys to overcoming any number of challenges. His customized one-on-one approach has helped thousands of clients from around the world improve their lives, overcome addictions, and become better people.

Dr. Fleming’s vast experience also includes:

  • Versed in neuroscience and brain-based solutions that break the barriers around effectively changing a human being’s patterns of choices/behaviors.
  • Coached hundreds of executives and professionals on 5 continents
  • Over 95 percent “highly satisfied w/outcomes.”
  • Been featured expert in The New York Times and Christian Science Monitor, and in featured interviews alongside gurus such as Marshall Goldsmith.

  • Former Hollywood high end clients come from his work as a recording artist as well as private coach for “derailed notables.”
  • Former big name clients have trusted him: from a former White House Cabinet member to NFL athletes to professional musicians to Fortune 500 C-levels.
