These days it doesn't take much to stress people out. Being on edge just from living in the fast paced modern world is often enough to put people precariously close to panic and anxiety attacks, insomnia and bad eating habits. These side effects of stress can combine to cause short and long-term complications if someone doesn't regulate their stress levels. If you are looking for a natural, non-pharmaceutical way to reduce stress, consider brainwave entrainment.
Because the mind and body are a single system, changing our brainwaves and spending more time in harmonious, relaxed, and restorative mind-states also affects our physical health. Physical health then reinforces our mental-state, and a feedback loop of either positive or negative processes becomes established. Research studies have shown beneficial effects of using brainwave entrainment for treating migraine headaches, premenstrual syndrome, and for managing physical pain.

Memory: There is not sufficient evidence to suggest that brainwave entrainment improves memory. However since cognitive function improves as a result of entrainment, short and/or long term memory may be improved by stimulation with certain frequencies. While lower frequencies may be beneficial for recalling certain memories, conscious processing of the memories generally requires sufficient beta.
Trumps 2016 win was'nt a flukeThey both campaigned for the electoral college vote the only vote that amttersThe popular vote means nothing.Had Hillary won the electoral college vote and Trump the popular vote people claiming that Trump is the real winner because he won the popular vote would rightfully be laughed out of the country.Criticize Trump for his many many faults and shortsighted decisions but stop talking about the popular vote.
Proceedings of the 9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology – CIM14. Berlin, Germany 2014 nature (birds and wind) while the second group listened to theta binaural  sound  waves.  Both  groups  listened  to  the  stimulus through headphones.  During  the  experiment, participants  were monitored with  the  Neurosky Mindwave  Interface, which  was connected through Processing to a Max Patch that saved all  the data in a  ‘.csv’  file.  Before  the stimulus, a baseline  EEG  took place and the participants answered the “Trait” part of the STAI test and a pre-experiment “State” version of the test. After the experiment,  participants  answered  a  post-experiment  “State” STAI  and  a  post-experiment  EEG  also  took  place.  Each experiment was  developed with  one participant  at a  time in  a controlled  environment.  American  Psychological  Association Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct 2002 were followed.   6.

PROCEDURE • The participant is asked to read and sign a consent letter. • A pre-experimental  three-minute encephalogram is taken and the participant is required to answer State and Trait STAI tests. • The  corresponding stimulus is  played during  ten minutes and an EEG is taken.  • The State STAI test is answered and a post-experiment EEG is taken.  12. VISUAL DATA  ANALYSIS The stimuli took place from second 180 to second 774. (Graphs in Annex 1)   12.1 Theta The  significant  time  range was  from second  3  to second  948. The  most  significant  moments were  the following:  (see annex A1.5) s = 189; p = 0.014; t = 1.025 s = 495; p = 0.002; t = -1.923 s = 780; p = 0.001; t = -2.349  12.2 Meditation The significant time range was from second 240 to second 912. The  most  significant  moments were  the following:  (see annex A1.3) s = 240;  p = 0.042;  t = .0.685 s = 522;  p = 0.013;  t = 0.546 s = 702;  p = 0.016;  t = 0.897  12.3 Delta The significant  time range was  from second 12  to second 954. The  most  significant  moments were  the following:  (see annex A1.10) s = 177; p = 0.046; t = 1.696 s = 627; p = 0.016; t = -1.366 s = 912; p = 0.007; t = 1.758  12.4 Attention The significant time range was from second 243 to second 870. The  most  significant  moments were  the following:  (see annex A1.11) s = 243; p = 0.021; t = 0.672 s = 513; p = 0.005; t = 0.722 s = 753; p = 0.017; t = 0.383  12.5 STAI Variations were  found in STAI-State pre-experiment and  post-experiment: • Control group results rose from 19 to 21 • Experimental group results decreased from 20 to 15. Variations between both groups were found in the STAI –Trait:  • Experimental  group with a  score of 32  in  STAI-T test outran control group by 4 points 13. RESULT ANALYSIS Samples  were analyzed  every three  seconds.  They were  later statistically distributed  according to the T-student test in  order to find differences between both groups.  For this experiment, the significant p value was p<0.05, this means that the probability is less than 5%  T-student detailed analysis: •  The  meditation  value  is  similar  in  both  groups,  (see  graph A1.3). T-student  function shows less significant  points for this parameter.  This means  both stimuli  induced relaxation  to  the participants.  • Theta values are  higher  in  the control group, especially after second  510  (see  graph  A1.5)  almost  at  the  middle  of  the stimulus.  •  STAI  “State” post-experiment  results  from the  experimental group  are  higher  than  the  control.  Therefore,  theta  binaural frequencies were  more effective as an  anxiolytic stimulus. (see graphs A1.1 and A1.2) • Delta  values  are higher after second  285 in  the control  group (see  graph  A1.10).  This  indicates  deep  sleep  and  losing  of consciousness  over  the  body  (unconscious  relaxation).  It  is highly possible that the participant fell asleep or got  to the first stages of sleep.   • There is a significant difference in delta between experimental and  control  groups  after  second  870  (post-stimulus).  For  the 

Since the beginning of the 21 st century, there has been a great development in different studies related to encephalography and the psychological consequences of binaural audio. The objective of this paper is to analyze the effects of binaural audio as a relaxation method for people that suffer anxiety and stress. The study took place at ITESM, Santa Fe Campus, where twenty participants around 21 years old took part of the study. They were divided into two groups, Experimental and Control. The first one listened to the Theta binaural stimuli and the second one listened to a stimulus with nature sounds (birds and wind). The results show that the experimental group got to conscious relaxation. The control group had an unconscious relaxation (sleep), but when the stimuli stopped they recovered their stress level, for some participants it increased.
So, I tried those frequencies. And after listening to the 1st one (High Beta to Gamma, Isochronic tones: 18HZ ramped up to 40HZ within 20 minutes) – I immediately stood up and started organizing! (Something that I kept forgetting to do!) Overall, I’ve found that isochronic tones & monaural beats are more immediately effective than binaural beats, though they are still good.

Since most of us spend our days in the beta state, EquiSync excludes the beta brainwave frequencies, and entrains only those responsible for the most beneficial brainwave states: alpha, theta, and delta waves. The two charts on this page illustrate the basic benefits of each brainwave state as well as the basic targeting of the EquiSync programs 1, 2, & 3.
* We made the decision in this update to return Brain Wave to a Portrait-Only App. We know some people will miss the Landscape UI, but we did this to focus on the Brainwave Entrainment and Audio experience, and to prepare for new devices and screen sizes. Maintaining and testing portrait and landscape layouts for iOS 5-8, HD&SD, and 3 Aspect Ratios had become the single most time consuming part of our development and testing, and soon there will be even more. 90% of our dev and testing time was spent tilting iPads and iPhones of different sizes and different iOS versions, tweaking code that had nothing to do with brainwave entrainment--the reason I and others use this app everyday. Once the new Aspect Ratio devices come out and we have time to test with them, then maybe Landscape will make a comeback on the iPad.

As you close your eyes, this session quickly lulls you down into deep delta sleep, where the body recovers and grows. The session starts at a waking frequency, soon taking you down deep into delta, with stops at sigificant beneficial frequencies such as the de-stressing 10Hz, the grounding 7.83Hz Schumann resonance (SR), and the deeply relaxing 5.5Hz. You’ll soon find yourself in a deep, healing sleep. If you’re particularly stressed, try listening to Power Chill before starting
