Can You Think Yourself Healthier? How to Use Your Brain’s Power to Boost Your Physical Health

If you already live a healthy lifestyle, and are eating well and exercising, but you still don’t feel as good as you know you can, then keep reading. Although a healthy diet and exercise are extremely important, by themselves they’re not enough – in order to be truly healthy, you need to have your mind on your side. This article shows you a powerful way in which you can tap into the power of your mind to maximise your health.

Why a Healthy Lifestyle May Not Be Enough

Illness and infirmity are epidemic these days. And because medical costs are soaring, more and more people are beginning to take responsibility for their own health. Doctors and other healthcare professionals advise us all to eat healthily and take regular exercise, as two of the main ways to improve our health.

These measures are certainly very important and effective. However if you put them into practice, you might have discovered that even though you seem to be doing all the right things, you still don’t feel quite as healthy as you might expect.

Of course there’s more to good health and eating well and exercising – it’s also vital to manage stress, avoid pollution, have healthy relationships etc – but even those who have excellent lifestyles may not feel 100% healthy. One possible reason for this is that the stress of our modern lifestyles can make it difficult for the body to regenerate itself.

This kind of healing and regeneration normally takes place during deep sleep phase of the sleep cycle. Unfortunately, many people do not spend as much time as they need in deep sleep. However, there is a technology available which can help to redress the balance, and that’s brainwave entrainment.

Using Brainwave Entrainment For Health

During deep sleep the brain produces predominantly delta brainwaves (brainwaves with a frequency of up to about 4Hz). These low-frequency waves are associated with the healing process. By taking your brain into the delta brainwave state, even when you’re awake, you may give your body the benefit of extra time to heal and regenerate.

However, most people who are not experienced meditators find it extremely difficult to enter the delta state while awake. Fortunately, brain wave entrainment can help, because if you listen to a suitable brainwave synchronisation recording that is designed to trigger the brain into producing delta waves, your brain should ‘follow along ‘and enter the delta state while you’re still awake, thanks to a phenomenon known as ‘frequency following response’.

By spending some time each day listening to your delta brainwave entrainment recording you’ll get the benefit of extra healing time and your health may improve as a result.

Which Type of Brainwave Synchronisation Recording is Best?

There are three types of brainwave entrainment recordings: binaural beats, monaural beats, and isochronic tones. Although isochronic tones are generally regarded as the most effective entrainment method for most purposes, many people find that they are not really suitable for delta work. Although it’s always a good idea to experiment and see what works best for you, if you’re only going to try one of these technologies, I recommend using binaural beats for any brainwave entrainment work that involves the delta frequencies.
