Schumann resonance

The Heart beat of Earth, Energy Medicine and the Future of Health

The resonant frequency of Earth is 7.83hz. The Earth pulses from pole to pole like the hearts within our bodies are beating. It has a rhythm and a measurable frequency that was determined by a German scientist in 1951 named Dr. Otto Schumann.   It is called the Earth/Schumann resonance.

How does this affect us? Studies in the 60’s discovered in the world’s first shielded underground bunker studies (with young, healthy subjects), that when humans are deprived of the magnetic pulse of the earth, the subjects become ill, depressed, stressed and have headaches. When a Schumann resonance of 7.83hz was introduced to the subjects in the bunker, their health was restored.

It appears that the earth’s heartbeat assists our biorhythms. Interestingly, our brains also have a pulse close in this range. It’s called Alpha Rhythm and is linked to intelligence. It is the dominant frequency found in the human brain. Countless studies indicate that individuals with various conditions benefit from Alpha training as provided by a trained Neurofeeback practiioner. Quantitative Electro Encephologram (qEEG ) studies revealed that the most stable human brains are operated by those with strong alpha wave production, the predominant wave form in our brains when we meditate. Is it any surprise then the best brains on the planet (as measured by flexibility and health criterion) are operated by meditators?

What are some of the implications of this knowledge?

Newtonian physics is behind us, and Quantum field theories abound that inform our ever-expanding consciousness of science. In Newtonian thinking, the brain was nothing more than an epiphenomenon, or a byproduct of chemical and electrical impulses. Quantum field theory tells a new and different story.

Anyone who wants to understand the future of medicine should read the quantum field theory. The 5 pillars of the Newtonian paradigm have slowly been crumbling: the illusion of seperability, solidity, determinism, reality and consciousness. The quantum field theory is the basis for our modern smart phones, computers, lasers, as well as the human body. Yet, old theories die hard. And Newtonian thinking is the foundation of our Western allopathic medicine system.

Why is this important? Following Newton’s thinking about the apple and gravity is where his theories start to fall apart. At the cellular level our atoms are only .0000000001% nothing. In other words, we are only about one billionth physical. Ponder that!

We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh, a world reknowned Buddhist, teacher and author has been recovering in California from a stroke, and is recovering nicely due to this state-of-the-art form of energy medicine that a friend of mine refers to as “Shaman in a box”. A highly skilled Neurofeedback practioner from New England flies regularly to treat him with Neurofeedback sessions to heal his brain from the trauma of the stroke and restore function to the damaged parts of his brain.

The future of medicine, if I may be so bold, is to restore our bodies connection to earth, to resonate once again with a healthy balance. Studies show Americans are only out in nature 10% of their day.

A personalized qEEG or brain map can reveal where our rhythms may have been knocked out of calibration due to injury, pollution, illness, cognitive decline, or genetic factors. Training with Neurofeedback gently coaxes the brain to heal itself though frequency based training, or with pEMF (pulsed electro magnetic field) devices. Neurological differences need not impair your life, nor should medications be your only option for optimization. Learn more about Neurofeedback or Brain training from a provider near you.

First session is always free.

 

 

 

End of Summer Special

IMG_1553Dear Cherished Clients,

It has been an amazing summer of working with terrific humans, watching people overcome personal limitations and hurdles.  Some have slept for the first time in decades, others overcoming anxiety and depression for the first time in more than 20 years, others have regained use of their voice, gait or hand tremors.  What a blessed thing it is to be part of the healing process.  I feel honored to be trusted in such a way, happy to have equipment that is state-of-the-art, and eagerly look forward to assisting others in reaching for their dreams of getting off of medications, or living an improved and satisfying life with a neurological system that is more highly functioning.

Beginning with September prices will be rising slightly.  So, I thought it would be a kind thing to offer an end of season special for those who book and pay for package sessions this week prior to September 1 which is Thursday.

5 sessions is $396, 10 sessions = $792, And 20 sessions is $1408.

I look forward to seeing you in my beautiful space.  Please come walk the trails where the paths and gardens have been expanded, and the labyrinth has new herbs and a sculpture for your peaceful enjoyment.

Thank you, Pam

Parietal lobes

Parietal lobe.jpgCan you read and write? Do math? Put on your shoes? Read a map? Apply lipstick or know when someone is unhappy? Catch a ball?

If so, thank your Parietal lobes!!!

  • The parietal lobe is complex in that there is a dominant hemisphere and a non-dominant hemisphere. The parietal lobe controls abilities such as math calculation, writing, left-right orientation, and finger recognition. Lesions in part of the parietal lobe can cause deficits in writing, arithmetic calculation, left-right disorientation, and finger-naming (Gerstmann syndrome).
  • The nondominant parietal lobe controls the opposite side of the body enabling you to be aware of environmental space, and is important for abilities such as drawing, being aware of expression, body language and facial recognition. If you can recognize feelings on someone’s face, be grateful to your parietal lobe near the temporal lobe. .An acute injury to the nondominant parietal lobe may cause neglect of the contralateral side (usually the left), resulting in decreased awareness of that part of the body, its environment, and any associated injury to that side (anosognosia). For example, patients with large right parietal lesions may deny the existence of left-sided paralysis. Patients with smaller lesions may lose the ability to do learned motor tasks (eg, dressing, other well-learned activities)—a spatial-manual deficit called apraxia.

Parietal lobe functions include:

  • Cognition
  • Information Processing
  • Touch Sensation (Pain, Temperature, etc.)
  • Understanding Spatial Orientation
  • Movement Coordination
  • Speech
  • Visual Perception
  • Reading and Writing
  • Mathematical Computation

Training with Neurofeedback can assist the brain in making new pathways and support the brain in rewiring itself. Schedule your free demo today to learn more about how Neurofeedback can bring you to a higher state of awareness and function. For the first time in history, we can see our own brains at work and assist its functioning to a higher state of optimization.

I look forward to working with you!

Occipital Lobe

In general, the average human brain weighs about 1,400 grams (3 lb). The brain looks like a large pinkish-gray walnut. The brain can be divided down the middle lengthwise into two halves called the cerebral hemispheres. Each cerebral hemisphere is divided into four lobes by sulci and gyri. The sulci (or fissures) are the grooves and the gyri are the “bumps” that can be seen on the surface of the brain. The folding created by the sulci and gyri increases the amount of cerebral cortex that can fit in the skull. The total surface area of the cerebral cortex is about 324 square inches or about the size of a full page of newspaper. Each person has a unique pattern of gyri and sulci, much like a fingerprintoccipital lobe.

The third lobe of the brain for this series is the occiptal lobe which is located at the back of your head. It is where visual input in the brain is translated into information of what your eyes are seeing, and also to being able to understand what we read.

Similar to how the temporal lobe makes sense of auditory information, the occipital lobe makes sense of visual information so that we are able to understand it. If our occipital lobe is impaired, or injured we would not be able to correctly process visual signals, thus visual confusion would result. We might, for example, see an image chopped up or parts missing. Also, with back of the head injuries, our ability to get into a restorative sleep called REM sleep is often impaired.

Occipital lobe epilepsy accounts for about 5-10 of all epilepsy. An occipital lobe epilepsy may be triggered by a strobe light show since the origin is in the visual processing component of the brain.

 

Your Frontal Lobe

Where is it?  It’s the front and top of your head


FRONTAL LOBE BTNE

What does it do?  This part of the brain handles thinking, decision- making, and planning.
You use your frontal lobe nearly everyday. You use it to make decisions, such as what to eat or drink for breakfast in the morning.   It’s where you make a plan for your day, and concentrate on your “To Do” list.  It’s where your personality is formed and why when a person has an accident or injury to the frontal lobe people notice a change to a person’s personality.

Here is a little neuroscience history:

In the mid 1800s, Phineas Gage, a railroad worker, somehow miraculously survived an accident where a large iron pole was driven into his head, specifically into the frontal lobe. After the incident, Gage’s personality was said to have changed dramatically.  His friends and family said that the once kind and hard-working Gage had changed into a lazy and rude man until he died years later. However, this incident allowed doctors and psychologists to analyze the brain and see the importance and functions of the frontal lobe.
