The following report describes preliminary results of a study that used a special set of Hemi-Sync tapes for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in conjunction with amino acid therapy for a group of twelve children.

 

Introduction

Attention and learning deficits disorders increasingly caused by malnutrition (1), food intolerance (2), resistance to thyroid hormone (3), artificial food additives (4), cerebral glucose metabolism (5), lead intoxication (6), zinc status (7) , 8), and other factors. This syndrome is usually accompanied by hyperactivity. Only a few reports are available on the amino acid balance  at  these  children  (9).  

 

Results

In all cases in which amino acids were determined, low levels of taurine and asparagine were found, indicating problems with neurotransmission. In addition to low taurine levels, low cystine levels were a constant finding, suggestive of food or food intolerance intolerance. In three children, low levels of glycogenic amino acids were also found. Another constant finding in these children was malabsorption, which is confirmed by protein flocculation test (Sandor-August), and suggested by low levels of urea amino acids. After supplementation of amino acid compounds with vitamin B6 as a coenzyme, all patients gradually showed clear improvements after three to six months.

SCIENTIFIC STUDIES ON REIKI & BINAURAL BEATS

 

 

RESEARCH ON REIKI

 

Research on Reiki is currently being conducted in South America, India, Spain, Australia, France, England and the United States. In England and the USA, hospital research is conducted by trained healthcare professionals.   

Several studies have shown that Reiki reduces pain. Other studies, done on elderly people in hospices, show increased well-being after treatment. In another nursing home, the elderly became clearer in the head and more alert in the body after Reiki treatments. 

In the United States, Reiki is used in healthcare before and after surgery to reduce the number of complications. In the same country, Reiki is also used to reduce stress and nausea during pregnancy. In England, Reiki is used to help cancer patients deal with emotional stress and to strengthen the body and psyche.

Immediate Effects of Reiki on Heart Rate Variability, Cortisol Levels, and Body Temperature in Healthcare with Burnout

 

Burnout is a work-related mental health deterioration that consists of three dimensions: emotional exhaustion, personality change, and decreased personal performance. Reiki aims to help replenish and balance the body's energetic system, thereby promoting the healing process. The purpose of this placebo-controlled, repeated measurement, crossover, single-blind, randomized study was to analyze the immediate effects of Reiki on heart rate variability (HRV), body temperature, and salivary flow and cortisol levels in healthcare professionals with burnout syndrome (BS).

 

Among the participants were 21 health care staff with BS, who were asked to complete two visits to the laboratory with a 1-week interval between sessions. They were randomized to the order in which they would receive a Reiki session applied by an experienced therapist and a placebo treatment applied by a therapist with no knowledge of Reiki, who mimicked Reiki treatment.

 

Temperature, Holter ECG recordings (standard deviation of normal to normal range [SDNN], square root of mean square differences of successive NN intervals [RMSSD], HRV index, low frequency component [LF] and high frequency component [HF]), saliva flow rate and post-insolvency baseline levels of cortisol intervention by an assessor blind to the assignment group. SDNN and body temperature were significantly higher after Reiki treatment than after placebo. LF was significantly lower after Reiki treatment. The decrease in the LF domain in connection with an increase in body temperature. These results suggest that Reiki has an effect on the parasympathetic nervous system when applied to healthcare professionals with BS.

RESEARCH ON HEMI-SYNC®  

 

Revealing Research for Peak Human Performance

 

Robert A. Monroe, founder of Hemi-Sync, is internationally known for his work with audio sound patterns that can have dramatic effects on states of consciousness. Monroe observed, during his early research, that certain sounds create a Frequency Following Response in the electrical activity of the brain.

The audio-guidance process works through the generation of complex, multilayered audio signals, which act together to create a resonance that is reflected in unique brain wave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or Hemi-Sync®, where the left and right hemispheres are working together in a state of coherence. Different Hemi-Sync® signals are used to facilitate deep relaxation, focused attention or other desired states. As an analogy, lasers produce focused, coherent light. Hemi-Sync® produces a focused, coherent mind, which is an optimal condition for improving human performance.

  One of the leading researchers into brain wave synchrony, Dr. Lester Fehmi, of the Princeton Biofeedback Research Institute, points out that "Synchrony represents the maximum efficiency of information transport through the whole brain." This means that brain wave synchrony produces a sharp increase in the effects of various brain wave states. The production of synchronized, coherent electromagnetic energy by the human brain at a given frequency leads to a 'laser-like' condition increasing the amplitude and strength of the brain waves. It's evident that a “highly integrated brain,” a brain, in which both hemispheres are functioning in symmetry, synchrony, harmony and unity, is a key to peak states and peak human performance.

Thanks to the cooperation of notable medical institutions and universities, the scientifically and clinically proven Hemi-Sync® technology continues to be the focus of a variety of specialized research projects. In addition, many therapists, physicians, educators, and other professionals use Hemi-Sync® extensively.

Such research is indispensable in revealing the influence of specific Hemi-Sync® sound patterns on consciousness. Over the years, these efforts have resulted in the development of scores of individual products for specific applications such as focused attention, stress management, meditation, sleep enhancement, and pain management, to name a few.

The following report describes preliminary results of a study that used a special set of Hemi-Sync tapes for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in conjunction with amino acid therapy for a group of twelve children.

 

Introduction

 

Attention and learning deficits disorders increasingly caused by malnutrition (1), food intolerance (2), resistance to thyroid hormone (3), artificial food additives (4), cerebral glucose metabolism (5), lead intoxication (6), zinc status (7) , 8), and other factors. This syndrome is usually accompanied by hyperactivity. Only a few reports are available on the amino acid balance of these children (9).

 

All children received amino acid supplements from the beginning of their treatment, in combination with vitamin B6 and restriction of refined carbohydrate consumption. Five children also received Sornson / Monroe (10) Hemi-Sync ADD bands (12 and 16 Hz) simultaneously. Three children started with these bands three, four and six months later, while continuing their nutritional supplement. All observations were made after at least seven months of treatment. The longest observation period with nutritional supplements is more than five years (average 3.2 years).

 

Results

 

In all cases in which amino acids were determined, low levels of taurine and asparagine were found, indicating problems with neurotransmission. In addition to low taurine levels, low cystine levels were a constant finding, suggestive of food or food intolerance intolerance. In three children, low levels of glycogenic amino acids were also found. Another constant finding in these children was malabsorption, which is confirmed by protein flocculation test (Sandor-August), and suggested by low levels of urea amino acids.
