Anxiety reduction using binaural beats and barinave entrainment

Anxiety, typically associated with uneasiness, fear, or worry, is a generalized mood condition that occurs without an identifiable menace. As such, it is distinguished from fear, which occurs in the presence of an observed threat. Additionally, fear is related to the specific behaviors of escape and avoidance, whereas anxiety is the result of threats that are perceived to be uncontrollable or unavoidable.

Common Anxiety symptoms are heart palpitations, fatigue, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headaches. Physically, the body prepares the organism to deal with a threat. Blood pressure and heart rate are increased, sweating is increased, flow of blood to the major muscle groups is increased, and immune and digestive system functions are inhibited (the fight or flight response). External signs of anxiety may include pale skin, sweating, trembling, and pupil dilation. Someone suffering from anxiety might also experience it as a sense of dread or panic.

The main characteristic of Anxiety is the overabundance of higher Beta brainwaves. Likewise, a lack of alpha and theta waves is observed. One undesirable consequence of this condition is that some people lacking these vital brainwaves often turn to external substances (such as alcohol, tobacco, and drugs) to induce the production of these brainwaves, providing temporary and potentially dangerous, relief.

Fortunately, there is an a way to reduce anxiety with a natural treatment using brainwave entrainment technology. The anxiety reduction session is a very relaxing therapy that uses mainly alpha waves inducing the brain to a state of light relaxation. This session has proven being incredibly effective with Anxiety and Stress disorders. By using relaxation focused brainwave entrainment sessions regularly, you can not only reduce anxiety, stress, and cravings for external substances. but you can also increase your brain's ability to produce these brainwaves, allowing you to better deal with anxiety in the future.

Like so many mental disorders there is no a "magic bullet" for anxiety or stress. No "one size fits all" solution will work for everybody. But it is an undisputed fact that Anxiety is vastly reduced by alpha/theta training.

Henry Adams, PhD., head of the alcoholism programs at St. Elizabeth's Hospital In Washington, found that alcoholics showed a 55% in alcohol consumption after a single relaxation session combined with a brief anti-alcohol suggestion.

Peninston & Kulkosky found that Alpha/Theta neurofeedback got successful results in 80% of those properly trained addicts becoming non-craving, healthy people.
