Poor Brain Health Signs and Symptoms

  • Low resilience – frustrated and irritated, especially at a similar time of day, regularly?
  • Brain fog – thinking gets foggy and tired at certain times?
  • Fatigue – in body but especially on a mental level where any more thinking is just too much?
  • Irregular emotions – mood swings and more sensitive to comments directed at you?
  • Forgetful – forget names, things to do, more often than you’d like?
  • Lack of motivation – a desire to work and take care of yourself but feeling it’s just too much?
  • Food cravings and indulgence – do you feed your brain the best nutrition or find yourself a slave to cravings, especially for processed food, overeat, or eat at all sorts of time of day and night, even when you’re not hungry?
  • Energy crashes – especially in the middle of the day, wishing for a nap?
  • Disrupted or poor quality sleep – do you lack in deep sleep and REM sleep whereby the quality of your sleep is low and how you feel and operate the next day is impaired?
  • Low sex drive – your body might be tired but the thought of getting sexy feels like a burden?
  • Underactive physically – despite best intentions do you skip work outs? If you do work out do you experience lower energy levels?
  • Busy mind – is peace of mind a far-off concept, stuck with a mind that won’t quiet down, involved in a myriad of small thoughts and issues?
  • Meditation nightmare – trying to sit and look in, to be quiet and enjoy inner space is not interesting, feels boring, and seems too much or too hard?
  • Family history – does anyone in your family suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s?

The flow of elements in a Brain Health Upgrade session

STEP ONE:

Mitochondria enhancement with Red light and near-infrared light therapy

Light therapy is as old as the sun. Human beings thrived and grew due to exposure to the full light spectrum of the sun. Today we limit our time in the sun so we are not overexposed to ultraviolet rays and their damaging effects. But 20 to 30 minutes of direct light and sun exposure will increase health and energy due to the benefits of visible white light and infrared rays. One literally receives thousands to millions of light energy units known as joules. As a therapy away from the sun modern technology has learned to harness visible red light and invisible near-infrared (NIR) light to penetrate the skin’s surface and enact healing to both organs and skin, including the brain.

Light therapy is essential for our modern lifestyle that limits our time outdoors and even warns against direct sun exposure. Your cells want and need light. As a result you can produce more energy. The process is self-reinforcing. Light therapy has been studied through intensive scientific research over the past 40 years, specifically under an area known as photobiomodulation. The combination of red light, which offers healing to the skin, and NIR as healing to deeper organs, results in a light therapy that improves our energy and healing, upgrades our health, and enhances how your brain functions. A brain whose energy workload is freed up because it works better due to being healthier can achieve higher grade energy production.

Studied health benefits include:

  • enhanced blood circulation
  • anti-inflammatory effects
  • increased muscle recovery
  • improved skin tone and glow
  • reduced wrinkles and scars
  • improved wound healing
  • pain reduction
  • lymphatic flow boost
  • increased cellular growth
  • enhanced fertility
  • increased testosterone.

A reduction of inflammation on both the skin and inner organs improves health and aids the reduction of inflammation in the brain to improve brain function.

STEP TWO:

Brain wave modulation through Audio Visual Entrainment

We use a device which utilizes a cutting edge, non-invasive, drug-free approach to help you sleep, relax, repair, learn, and just overall function better. This amazing technology uses lights and sounds called Audio Visual Entertainment (AVE) in specific configurations to guide you into proper functioning brainwave states to improve your health, mental functioning, memory, sleep, mood, cognition and stress management – to help you achieve peak mental and physical performance, get a better sleep, and increase energy levels.

AVE has been shown to produce dramatic increases in cerebral blood flow, neurotransmitters, dissociative states, efficient brain activity and sound mental health. AVE has also proven itself in inducing meditative states and treating anxiety.

AVE used in the evening is most effective for helping people fall asleep by turning off or shutting down the mental “chatter” after a busy day. People who have difficulty falling asleep often have low levels of serotonin. AVE helps boost serotonin which converts to melatonin. Melatonin is an important antioxidant and is known as the hormone for sleep, essential to help you sleep.
AVE sessions used during the day reduce stress and anxiety, which also provides for better quality of sleep – the more relaxed your day, the more relaxed your sleep.
Negative thoughts not only impair anyone working out striving to perform their best, but they also reduce serotonin levels in the brain. A high level of serotonin is directly linked to superior job performance and leadership ability.
AVE is very effective for relieving your low mood because it very quickly dissociates and stabilizes brainwaves. It also increases cerebral blood flow. People with low moods also have low levels of serotonin and norepinephrine. AVE boosts brain levels of serotonin, and norepinephrine.

STEP THREE:

Meditation Entrainment with mini-EEG Biofeedback

Many have the desire to “meditate” as we understand it can help our brain function better, find peace of mind, and improve our overall health. Yet when we try to sit and “do” it the result can often be frustration and/or a lack of insight into whether it was effective or not. In truth, there are many approaches to meditation, some that involve sitting still and others that emphasize the use of the breath, including deep nerve stimulation in the body through posture management. Samahita and its experience in the field of yoga and meditation is ideally placed to support you in a variety of these approaches.

Samahita’s Brain Health Upgrade program specifically incorporates a session with a wearable mini-EEG device that “listens” to your brain while you sit (or lay) during the timed meditation session. This “listening” gives you feedback, letting you know if you are in a mind-wandering state, aimlessly distracted, or can tune in to the inner soft breath and achieve a calmer mind state.
