Got Stress ?

Did you know that it has been estimated that nearly one-third of the visits to primary care physicians are actually mental disorders, not physical illness? What the brain dictates, the body demonstrates!

In medical terms, stress is the body's physical reaction to change. It begins primarily when your brain sends out signals that over-activate your sympathetic nervous system (leading to a "fight-or-flight" response) or over-activate your parasympathetic system (leading to a "freeze" response). In many ways, these deeply engrained, primitive responses keep us safe. But, big trauma - and the little traumas of daily life - can over-activate us to the point that they controls us, instead of the other way around because they get used to an unhealthy degree or for an unhealthy period of time which cause them to get "stuck."

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. Like stress, some level of anxiety can be helpful, but similarly, when anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it can become a disabling disorder. Psychologists typically classify anxieties in the following ways:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

  • Panic Disorder

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Social Phobia (or Social Anxiety Disorder)

    As we do our Audio Visual Entrainment, our clients report that they begin to sleep better, they feel more well-rested, they are stronger physically, have regular bowel movements and less food sensitivities. Personal relationships are stronger and healthier. They find themselves to be more interested in life and more able to explore things. Some have expressed a sense of feeling more "free" and less "tied up in knots."

  1. The Fine Print:
    Epileptics and Photo-Epileptics should NOT use AVE without the consent of their physician. Persons with a history of brain seizures, mental disorders or alcohol
    and/or drug abuse also should not use the AVE unless under the supervision of their medical doctor.

    AVE is not recognized as a treatment or cure of any medical condition or disability. However, research suggests that the AVE is an effective relaxation and meditation tool.

    AVE is not intended to treat, cure, heal, or diagnose any disease, mental illness or symptom. AVE is intended to balance and harmonize brainwaves. Individual results vary.
