Troy couldn’t read, couldn’t focus, and had low self-esteem.
He had a severe eating disorder. He was on the hyper side, and when he talked I could never understand him. He would tell you all the time that he was stupid, and that he didn’t know what he was doing. Troy had such anxieties when you would ask him to do his schoolwork or to read something. At the same time, when he was tested in school to diagnose for dyslexia, they found that his I.Q. was 120. What I wanted Troy to get out of Brain Balance was to be able to read so he could succeed in school.
The progress that I saw with Brain Balance made everything worthwhile. If you looked at Troy when he started at Brain Balance compared to where he is today, he is completely different. His confidence just grows and grows. Today, he will tell you that he is the smartest kid in his class. When you ask him about tests he tells you, “I got 100, what do you think?” Everything has changed about him going to school. His whole life has changed. Troy knows that Brain Balance did it for him and he’ll be the first one to tell you. It has been incredible for me and for him. The program has been fantastic and he is thriving. Troy is on the road to a better life.
I used to have to tell Troy, “Pick your clothes up, make your bed, brush your teeth.” Do this. Do that. Today, when he gets up to go to school, the first thing he does is get dressed and make his bed. He cleans up his room and brushes his teeth. I used to have to tell Troy how to do everything. Now he’s just in rhythm and does it without even being told. The changes have been incredible.
