Brainwave entrainment is a technological method that introduces specific audio stimulus to the brain with the intention of altering its frequency to match that of the entrainment. Delta brainwave frequency is associated with the unconscious and deep, slow brain activity found in deep sleep.
The introduction of delta brainwave will help you enjoy the benefits of this restorative frequency.
At the delta level, the body replenishes its energy, releases anti-aging hormones, relieves stress, boosts the immune system, and heals illnesses and injuries. The delta state rejuvenates your mind, body, and spirit. When in a deep sleep, your body is resetting its internal clock.
Without enough deep, restorative sleep, you age faster, are depressed, overweight, are under-productive, and become sick more often.
Many health problems are connected to not getting enough rejuvenating delta wave activity.
Disorders Associated With Disrupted Delta
· Irregular delta wave activity has been detected in patients with ischemic brain diseases.
· Parasomnias: sleep walking, and sleep talking, sleep terrors and confusional arousals show disruptions in slow wave sleep.
· Sleep deprivation increases irregular delta activity. It takes a while to balance the cycle after deprivation.
· Parkinson’s disease; sleep disturbances in patients with Parkinson’s show disrupted brain wave activity during delta. Drugs that induce deep sleep help significantly to improve symptoms.
· Schizophrenia; people suffering with Schizophrenia show disrupted EEG patterns and there is a close association between reduced delta wave during deep sleep and negative symptoms. During sleep, schizophrenics are not producing the deep, slow wave needed to restore the body, but during the day, when awake, there is evidence that they are producing the delta wave. When they are in delta wave, while awake, their symptoms can be severe. A recent study shows that schizophrenics have an absence of delta wave dominance in the right frontal lobe and that the usual changes in delta associated with aging, are not observed.
· Diabetes, Type II; disruptions in slow wave sleep have been shown to increase risk of developing Type II diabetes due to the disruption of the secretion of the human growth hormone secreted by the pituitary in delta frequency.
· Fibromyalgia; patients suffering from fibromyalgia report not sleeping well. Studies show that sleep in the 3rd and 4th stages, are disrupted with Alpha waves, a faster wave, not allowing the release of opiates that stop musculoskeletal pain and fatigue.
· Alcoholism; alcohol decreases slow wave activity while increasing REM. In long-term abuse of alcohol, influences of alcohol on the brain, changes the sleep structure of the individual, that may not go away after abstinence.
· Depression; could be from lack of serotonin, and human growth hormone release.
· Anxiety; if the brain is in a constant state of anxiety, it will make neural networks to reflect a chronic anxiety state.
· Obsessive-compulsive disorder.
· Attention deficit disorder (ADD)/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
· Juvenile chronic arthritis; the immune system is compromised if delta wave is disrupted allowing for auto-immune disorders to develop.
Delta brainwave entrainment can help you achieve deep relaxation and sleep. Entrainment can be used as an effective sleep aid and can enable you to experience all the benefits of a deep sleep,while requiring less effort on your part to achieve this state. There are significant health benefits associated with this slow brainwave frequency, some of which may improve the symptoms of certain disorders.
