Entrainment: Still Useful After all These Years...

I’ve been using brain entrainment for a couple years now. It provides all the physical benefits of deep meditation without the learning curve. When I listened to my first entrainment track it sent me into the deepest, most restful sleep I’d enjoyed in months — maybe years. Now that I’ve been listening to entrainment tracks every day, they don’t have the same kind of dramatic impact they did when I started. But that’s a good thing. When I started entrainment, I was battling depression and some ongoing chronic health issues. I was chronically sleep deprived. Either I couldn’t fall asleep because my brain was racing, or I couldn’t stay asleep. I was very anxious, and I felt as...

Blog Action Day: All About the Water

Change.org|Start Petition Today is Blog Action Day, and all over the world bloggers are coming together to discuss a single issue: water. I’m not going to write about drought, or ecosystems. I’m sure others far better qualified than I will do justice to those subjects. Instead, I’m going to write about our bodies’ need for clean, uncontaminated water to maintain health. It may seem a bit snarky to complain about our relatively potable water in the US when millions throughout the world don’t have safe drinking water, but I’m going to do it anyway. Tap Water Is Hazardous to Your Health Most US residents enjoy a seemingly endless supply of safe drinking water. Oh, sure, it’s safe in...

Being Healthy and Well Adjusted

Our spines and nervous systems are truly wonderous anatomical marvels, far more amazing than the most complex communications center ever devised by mankind. Unfortunately, when everything isn’t aligned properly, communication between the brain and other parts of the body suffers and can result in discomfort and even disease. Chiropractric adjustments are the answer. Recently I experienced a different kind of chiropractic adjustment than what I’ve become accustomed to. I first visited a chiropractor years ago. I kept getting that uncomfortable, tingling, falling asleep feeling in my right arm. Then it started happening to my left arm. I went to a regular MD, who told me a pinched nerve in my neck was the culprit, and there was really...

What Has Entrainment Done For Me Lately?...

Do you want to enjoy all the physical benefits of deep meditation without the hard work or learning curve? Entrainment is the solution. I discovered entrainment by accident. I clicked on a link in an email from a medical person. The link was to a company called Holosync, which was willing to mail me a CD so I could try their product. It sounded interesting and potentially helpful, so I signed up. I was so eager to try it I wished they had an immediate download – I didn’t want to wait for it to come in the mail. When I tell you what was going on in my life, you’ll understand why. I Was a Mess Diabetes...

Train Your Brain

Your brain is computer central for your body. It’s not just the place you stash your stray thoughts, figure out equations, or daydream. Your brain tells the rest of you what to do. Heart, beat! Lungs, expand! Kidneys. . . you get the idea. We’ve known for years that meditation, the deep meditation practiced by Zen monks, produces tremendous health benefits. Now there’s a way to enjoy those benefits without spending hours learning to meditate. It’s called entrainment or brain entrainment, and it’s as easy as listening to an album. In a nutshell, here’s how it works. When different low-frequency sounds are fed into each ear separately through headphones, your brain waves change to adapt to them. In...

The Three Pillars

I like to think of wellness as needing three pillars to stand on its own, or three legs of a stool if that image works better for you. The three pillars are: Diet and Nutrition Fitness Brain Health The Diet and Nutrition pillar is obvious. If we don’t put the good stuff in, we don’t get the good results we want. Fitness doesn’t mean running a lot of miles, lifting hundreds of pounds of weights or working out for hours in the gym. It means engaging in the right physical activity — and the right kind of rest — to get the maximum results in terms of heart and lung health in the shortest time. Because I really...
