De-Stress is Better than Dis-stress and Dis-ease: Employ the Power of Sound

Can sound really change your brainwaves so you feel relaxed? Can it create a healthy mind, body and spirit to prevent and treat disease?  Research says it can. The benefits to be realized by controlling your brainwaves are simply astounding. The practice in which sound wave stimuli are purposefully used to alter brainwaves in this matter is called brain wave entrainment (BWE).

Numerous studies indicate that roughly 90% of all illness is linked to stress.  While some stress is actually good for us, what we are currently experiencing in our day to day life is way too much.   Chronic, persistent stress has been shown to lead to numerous biological changes that make the body more conducive to cancer development, growth and progression.  By using brainwave entrainment to change the state that your brain is in, you will be better equipped to handle acute and long-term stress as well as improve quality and quantity of sleep—a lack of sleep will exacerbate the effects of stress, and proper sleep is needed to produce much-needed melatonin.
