How brainwave entrainment helps women with premenstrual syndrome

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a collection of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms related to a woman's menstrual cycle. Most women (about 80 percent) have some symptoms of PMS. These symptoms usually have sufficient severity to interfere with some aspects of life. Such symptoms are usually predictable and occur regularly during the two weeks prior to menses.

At first look, it may seen illogical that brainvawe entrainment can have a signifcant impact on PMS symptoms, however, the brainwave pattern of women suffering from PMS is surprisingly unique. Istra Toner, of the Royal Medical School
in London, studied brainwave patterns of subjects with PMS and found an abnormally high amount of Delta frequencies. A lack of blood flow have been found by other researches.

Recent research indicates that that PMS session may help to reduce these symptoms.
It has been concluded by many that an increase in cerebral blood flow (often an effect of brainwave entrainment) is the principal cause of PMS reduction during a session. Therefore, this session first relaxes the listener to Theta, helping increase circulation, and then at the end helps speed up the listener's brainwaves and increase cerebral blood flow.

Duncan Anderson at the Royal Medical School in London completed a study with 17 women who had long standing, severe PMS. At the end of the study a median of 76% reduction was recorded. 12 of the 17 technically no longer had PMS.
