Are we a society hooked on drugs?
For example, in the first six months of 2015:
- Over 10 million prescriptions for Lyrica (for fibromyalgia)
- 10 million for Vyvanse (A federally controlled substance (CII) because it can be abused or lead to dependence. Used for treatment of deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- 8.3 million for Abilify (Antipsychotic for schizophrenia, depression, bipolar)
In the first six months of this year over 250 million prescriptions will be given for the top 100 branded drugs. How many of them will leave these individuals compromised in ways they would have never known if they hadn’t used them in the first place? Of these prescriptions how may improve the quality of life and enhance the overall well-being of these unique individuals?
These medications do serve a purpose. However, the majority of these medications clamp down and prevent the brain from relaxing.
What does it mean to have a “Relaxed Brain?”
Our brain ideally in a relaxed state is flexible, unclouded and allows us to focus. Since the brain is our “Master Control Center” of the body, in a Relaxed state, the body functions properly. But life is not perfect. Life is stressful. It can be traumatic. During a time of stress or trauma, the brain wants to do only one thing – survive. It will do what it must do to keep us alive. Fight, Flight or Freeze is great when you are in a dangerous situation. But today we stress out about money, our children at school and even what we are going to wear for the day. The brain cannot tell the difference between stress induced by the pressure of work or being chased by a Bengal tiger. When we continually live at this high level of stress, our brain begins to lose flexibility and stress become accumulative. It creates a new “Setpoint,” and it becomes the “New Normal.” When we experience fewer stressors, it becomes difficult to be calm because we are now “Stuck” at this new “Setpoint.” We will experience anxiety, depression, anger, insomnia, digestion issues, lack of focus, fogged mind to name a few. Get the point? We are messed up!
An Optimal Brain uses a licensed technology from Brain State Technologies to bring the brain back to a relaxed state. It is a non-evasive process that takes the frequencies of the brain, converts the frequencies to a digital signal and sends it to a software program that converts the brain frequencies to sound. This sound is fed back to the brain through ear buds. What this does is create a sound mirror that the brain recognizes. Do you know what is so amazing about our brain? It knows what is normal. It now can hear itself, realizes it is not functioning normally, and then begins the process of Resetting itself. It breaks the brain from being “Stuck” and begins to return to the Relaxed state. When we are in a Relaxed state, we become focused, clear headed and our bodies function properly. This process is called Brain Wave Optimization (BWO).
BWO is currently used by the Military for PTSD and in professional sports. With over 100,000 BWO’s performed, it has given many the quality of life and well-being they have been seeking. If you want an improved quality of life, An Optimal Brain will offer BWO beginning January 2017. I personally have gone through the process, and it has given me a better and more fulfilling life. Are you feeling “Stuck” or not experiencing the fulfilled life or overall well-being you always wanted? Call 951-319-7819 or email firstname.lastname@example.org today to schedule your BWO evaluation.
