Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Relief using Brainwave Entrainment based music

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain are common problems around the world. predominant in 3-5% of women and 2 to 4% of the general population, Fibromyalgia is characterized by persistent muscular pain, fatigue, sleeping problems and in some cases depression, anxiety and stress. The treatment of Fibromyalgia is still under study but the results of using brainwave entrainment are very promising:

In a comparative research on Fibromyalgia treatments, audio entrainment was better than both medical and nutritional treatments in many ways, including reduction of Pain and Anxiety. Combined treatment poved being more successful.

Another research conducted by Mike Twittey and David Siever reduced Chronic Pain in 15 participants over a period of study of two month . The Beck Depression Scale also indicated a significant reduction in depression.

In a case study performed by Dr. Fred Boersma, a man with a severe back injury was able to reduce his pain killer intake from 35 extra strength Tylenol daily, to only 2 or 3 pills daily! The man also reported a more positive attitude, no doubt due in part to the increase in endorphins and serotonin that the light and sound sessions stimulated.

A typical brainwave entrainment session, specifically designed for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain reduction, consists of Sub-Delta (0 - 1 hz) frequencies, which seem to have soothing effects on the limbic system (the amygdala and hypothalamus), which themselves operate at delta frequencies. It is theorized that this is the reason delta frequencies are so helpful with conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic pain, as well hypertension.

Stimulation of Alpha waves in the brain also causes an increase in the release of serotonin, the body's own pain relief drug, and it has been shown to help in the relief of certain types of headaches (such as migraine) and other types of bodily pain and discomfort, such as fibromyalgia. Brainwave entrainment also helps in physical healing processes as well as improving the immune system.

In conclusion, a session of 15-30 minutes of fibromyalgia session based on sounds and music used repeatedly can reduce significantly the symptoms of these terrible afflictions.
