NOW I AM ABLE TO FOCUS ON EACH TASK AT HAND
My life contains all the normal stressors: bills, house projects, work, spouse, child, family obligations, etc. In addition, I am also an active military reservist and an Iraqi veteran. I have been in the military since 1988, serving on both active duty and reserves. Since returning from Iraq in April 2004, I have been extremely stressed, hyper-vigilant, anxious and easily set-off into explosive anger. My newfound emotions left my family unhappy, my friends confused, and work questioning my sanity.
Within the last few months, I knew I was getting closer and closer to a complete stress/anxiety induced breakdown, or explosion, it’s hard to say which way it would go. Work also noticed my increased level of stress and anger, scaring some and causing concern among others. My mind was in a constant cycle of thoughts coming and going, impossible to sort, categorize or control. It seemed like a hundred little men were all trying to gain my attention by shoving ideas, concepts or tasks to the front of my mind at the same time. Each little man wanted my complete focus, and as the little man gained my focus, another little man would shove him aside, restarting the cycle.
Now, I am able to focus on each task at hand, and the hundred little men have been replaced by one little man, who only gives me one task at a time. I find I am able to focus clearly, my anger has subsided, and I haven’t verbally attacked anyone. My flashbacks and hyper-vigilance have been reduced to a manageable level. I have stopped drinking massive amounts of coffee every morning replacing it with tea. Although this may seem minor to some, I haven’t missed my morning cup of coffee in years. To stop drinking coffee, simply by choice, seemed impossible prior to “Brainwave Optimization”. I have also reduced or eliminated my nightly alcohol intake. Again, this alcohol reduction is based on my choice, not my past need to slow down the little men in my head or a desire to ward off anxiety induced insomnia.
Additionally, and perhaps most important, I can focus on my wife and son while we are together. Our family time is not shared with work, Iraq, or that deep, dark place that we don’t want revealed to those we love.
I truly believe Brainwave Optimization...has given me back my life.
U.S. MARINE VETERAN'S POWERFUL PRESENTATION ON PTSD AND HIS EXPERIENCE WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY
SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON MY COGNITIVE FUNCTIONING
Having had no previous exposure to the principles and practice of Brainwave Optimization, I was curious to experience the process. My initial consultation involved Brainwave Assessment and one of the startling observations the practitioner was able to point out, was the site and historical relevance of a trauma to the skull I had as a child and the consequential impact it would have had over the years. The actual sessions that I then undertook proved to have a significant impact on my cognitive functioning, enabling a much enhanced sense of mental acuity and focus as well as a greater sense of emotional calm, but above all the greatest benefit Brainwave Optimization had was on the quality of my sleep. For the first time in a number of years I now sleep solidly, perhaps now only waking once in the early hours of the morning, whereas previously I was waking at least four times during the night. This benefit seems to be enduring; it has been six weeks after the sessions and my sleep patterns have remained the same.
I have no doubt that Brainwave Optimization can have significant therapeutic benefits in the collective management of such conditions as generalized anxiety, attention deficit and learning disorders especially in children, sleep disorders, depression and to enhance a better stress response in patients during times of stress.
I am a Vietnam veteran with PTSD. I suffer from depression, substance abuse, and extreme clusters headaches. I had been asking the Veterans Administration for the last 2 to 3 years for other approaches to PTSD than the regular "talk Group Therapy' and countless psychotropic pharmaceuticals, some of which had left me impotent for over 3 years. Unfortunately, to no avail. I had even over the years tried private counseling, at great personal expense. It was essentially no different, basically the same approach... My sleep patterns were about 12 per day, frequent nightmares, slovenly personal care and a lack of energy. No lust for life. And when my cluster headaches were in full swing my attitude would dramatically deteriorate.
After the third day of sessions I noticed a dramatic change in my sleep. I was only sleeping six to seven hours a night instead of twelve and as an added bonus my problems with impotency decreased dramatically.
My outlook on life has improved considerably and my energy level is phenomenal! I was on probation for substance abuse. After over 36 years of self-medication and inebriation I am hopeful that returning to a balanced state through brain training can help me avoid drugs and the negative consequences associated with them. My attitude is very positive and I have been drug free for quite some time. I guess I was lucky to be able to visualize peaceful conditions so well.
Five months ago I started my treatment. After 3 days I noticed a huge difference in myself and so did everyone else. The cravings disappeared. I started feeling more in control of myself. I noticed my mind wasn’t so cloudy so I could think a lot clearer. I was calmer; my anxiety attacks were fading away. My multitasking skills came back. I was so excited about all this I have experienced I went to all my friends who did use drugs and told them all about Brainwave Training. I was amazed when they were using meth in front of me and I didn’t have one craving to want some. Not one anxiety attack, nothing. I’ve not felt free from addiction since I was 13 years old. This was after only 4 days of Brain training, Amazing, huh? I don’t know about you but it takes weeks, even months, to start to progress in kicking the habit let alone to get up and be a productive person at that. It is such a positive experience I think. It’s life changing, amazing and works.
After just three days of sessions I am feeling a sense of well being that is becoming absent of worry. The frequency of intrusive thoughts are diminishing and I am feeling a sense of hope that I have finally discovered a release valve for my compressed way of being. Holding back a tsunami of pent up energy on a constant and regular basis has consumed a great deal of my energy for my entire life.
The marine provided an avenue to channel this energy (much like the incredible Hulk, you are able to get out of control but deep down, you kind of like it) but when you have to bottle it up upon returning to civilian life it just steals precious moments that you just can't get back.
I have invested over two decades in the personal development field and have learned many valuable coping skills of breathing and reforming my thoughts in order to be in the present moment. However, I have experienced great difficulty maintaining this way of being. I get relaxed and centered and then my driven thought process would distract me. That is up until the last few days of brain training sessions. Thank you for leading this exploration into our human potential.
