If you have questions that are not addressed here, I invite you to submit your questions below. I shall address your questions to the best of my current knowledge and experience. 

  1. What is brainwave entrainment?

  2. Brainwave entrainment is meditation using sound or light pulses or both.

    In traditional meditation, you need to focus on something to meditate. You need to discipline yourself to remain concentrated.

    On the contrary, brainwave entrainment doesn't need any concentration or focus on your part. The technology creates the meditation for you.

    It is meditation without effort.

  3. What are the benefits of using brainwave entrainment?

  4. The benefits are the same as traditional meditation. The only difference is you experience the benefits faster with brainwave entrainment technology.

    Those who practice traditional way of meditation usually require 5 to 8 years of disciplined effort before they realize deep positive transformations in their practice.

    These transformations can be described as improving physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual well-being.

  5. Would you be able to elaborate more on these transformations?

  6. The first noticeable benefit everyone will experience is stress relief. You experience an increase in your stress threshold. You feel calm, centered and optimistic.

    You experience vitality and look younger than your age.

    You think more effectively, are more creative, and possess deeper insights. You managed your emotions better. Your relationships improve.

    Your body is enabled to produce hormones essential for growth and rejuvenation. Your stress hormones, cortisol, decreases as other hormones such as serotonin, catecholamines, DHEA, melatonin, endorphins and HGH increase.

  7. Are there scientific and clinical evidence to prove the benefits of using brainwave entrainment?

  8. Yes.

    Dr Vincent Giampapa, who is head of Longevity Institute International and Past-President of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, tested the effect of audio brainwave entrainment on hormones. He found increase levels in melatonin and DHEA, and reduced levels in cortisol.

    You can also find support for the therapeutics benefits of the use of brainwave entrainment in a peer review article,Comprehensive Review of the Psychological Effects of Brainwave Entrainment by Tina L. Huang, PhD; Christine Charyton, PhD.

    It confirms the benefits of brainwave entrainment on super-learning, improved memory, I.Q, alleviating migraines and depression and enhancing creativity.

  9. How does brainwave entrainment work?

  10. Our brain is like a electrical organ made up of billions of cells called neurons. Neurons fire electrical signals. As a result, the brain creates new neural pathways to connect both hemispheres of the brain

    These signals communicate to all parts of your brain and they become what you perceive as your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual world.

    These electrical signals of the brain can be shown on EEG monitors. They look like wave forms. These wave forms are called brainwaves and are grouped into Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta waves.

    These brainwaves have been known to be associated with different peak mental states. For example, dreaming sleep, creativity, insights and problem solving abilities are known to be associated with theta waves. Dreamless sleep and our body's growth hormones are mostly secreted in the delta state.

    In the ordinary person, these states of consciousness are not easily accessible. Hence, the ordinary person tends to under-achieve in life.

    However, these states can be remembered and assessed through the use of neuro-technology such as brainwave entrainment.

    Brainwave entrainment stimulates these brainwaves through the use of carrier frequency tones that are inaudible to the ears but that the brain can register.

    By repeatedly entraining the brain with these tones, you will begin to remember how to activate brain states that correspond to peak performance states.

    This state of performing at your highest potential is called whole brain functioning.

  11. How do you use audio brainwave entrainment and what does it sound like?

  12. The most popular and effective brainwave entrainment is the use of audio Cd with headphones or earphones.

    When you listen to brainwave entrainment audio Cd, you will often hear soundscapes such as rainfall, forest streams, Tibetan bell, singing bowls, including ambient music.

    These sounds do not create the entrainment. The entrainment is created by inaudible frequency tones or pulses embedded in the sounds.

    They are called binaural beat and/or isochronic tones. These are carrier frequencies. They correspond to your natural brainwave frequencies.

    The soothing sounds that you hear are just to mask the actual carrier tones or pulses.

  13. How do I use audio brainwave entrainment?

  14. You listen to audio Cd brainwave entrainment for 30 minutes a day. You can listen at night before bed or just upon waking up in the morning.

    Do not listen while you are driving or working.

    When you listen daily for a period of time, you are exercising your brain. After a period of use, you seem to be able to reach those areas of your brain at will to perform functions that you would not have been able to do before.

    In other words, you discover you have abilities that you did not know you possess before.

  15. When can I experience the benefits?

  16. Instantly when you use it the first time. Those who use it within days experience deep relaxation and stress reduction.

    They are able to cope better with their work. You will feel connected with your environment. You seem at peace and feel centered, poised.

    When you continue listening, in time, you will experience physical, mental and emotional well-being. Your left and right brain are being entrained to communicate with each other more effectively.

  17. Who will benefit from brainwave entrainment?

  18. Everyone so long as you are above age 17 and is not suffering from epilepsy or is wearing a heart pacemaker. You should also not be pregnant.

    In general, those who suffer from stress, who are afflicted with"attention scarce syndrome", who wants to maintain youthfulness, who wants to get ahead in life through living their true potential.

  19. How to choose the right brainwave entrainment product?

  20. There are many audio brainwave entrainment products. I recommend that you choose those that are developmental or program-based such as Holosync or Brain Evolution System.

    Apart from their superior technology and quality, they are designed specifically to develop your brain to its highest whole brain functioning capabilities.

    Most other brainwave entrainment do not take you very far in your desire to progress at higher potential.

  21. Why would you recommend Brain Evolution System?

  22. In my opinion, there are only two excellent program-based audio brainwave entrainment right now. They are Brain Evolution System and Holosync.

    Brain Evolution System is, in my opinion, the superior of the two. Furthermore, it is so much less costly than Holosync.

  23. Does Brain Evolution System contain subliminal messages?

  24. There are no subliminal messages.

    Brain Evolution System incorporates sound frequencies that are below the ear's hearing range. Despite that, the area in our brain, responsible for processing sound, can hear and register. These sound frequencies correspond to the brain's natural internal brainwave frequencies.
