Depression does not discriminate based on your social standing, how much money you have in your bank account, your accomplishments. Even if there’s nothing but happy moments around you, why then do you still feel depressed?

Research has found that the brain out of balance and lack of harmony between the lobes could possibly lead to disorders such as depression, anxiety, insomnia and more. Many people turn to prescription medications in an attempt to address their symptoms, but ironically these same medications can possibly cause or perpetuate the afflictions we are expecting them to treat.

Brainwave Optimization is a unique highly scientific yet holistic approach. Over 120,000 people have successfully participated, and the number grows every day. What are they experiencing? We start with an intensive scientific evaluation of your brainwaves, using a very advanced computer program in the initial assessment. We determine where the imbalances and frequencies levels are in the initial assessment. We can then create a plan customized to your specific needs. Over the next 5 days, you can relax in our zero gravity chair while listening to audio feedback being created by your own brainwave frequencies and mirrored back through this advanced technology. This process can be viewed on our website,www.awokenlife.com, under “What is Brainwave optimization?

Have you ever heard someone say “just think positive, look at the bright side or just get over it” and think “easy for you to say?” Depression is a real thing and the answer can be as easy as relaxing for five days while having Brainwave Optimization at Awoken Life.

“The best part of this process was I was able to bring myself to a calm state and focus on me and smooth me over. I have been able to manage my high anxiety through the visualizations. I would highly recommend this to anyone,” says Awoken Life client Cheryl., San Clemente. “This technology may seem odd, but the more you look at it and understand it, the more it makes sense. If the brain is out of balance, how can it communicate to the rest of the body? This is a more balanced way of doing things and more holistic. The value of doing brainwave optimization is huge! I spent a lot more money on a lot dumber things and with this, you aren’t a patient for life. You get help and then move on with your life. One amazing thing I discovered after my treatment was that I had even forgotten about the Rx of Xanax I had at home. I just felt no need anymore. I now live in a state of reality instead of a state of fear.”

Another Awoken Life client, Dana Point resident Vince adds “I cannot put this in to words how much this has changed my life. Struggles of alcohol dependency, depression, spelling and even my fear of heights suddenly became manageable. I went in to this a total skeptic and was made in to a believer. Thank you for giving me a life I never thought possible.”

Awoken Life is dedicated to helping people achieve their potential, through Brainwave Optimization, guided visualization and even hypnotherapy. It’s our goal to see you getting back to your life as soon as possible.

Bumps to the head can impact your brain for years to come

How many times have you bumped your head throughout your lifetime? My granddaughter slipped and fell on a marble floor running through the kitchen in her socks when she was three years old - the blow to the back of her head sent blood flying in all directions. Rushing her to the hospital, we realized she was going to have a concussion. She will never remember that incident, yet in that moment the Neuro Net of her brain went into shock and her brain activity ramped up to start the healing process.

Concussions or head injuries from sports, automobile accidents, hard blows to the head, falling and hitting your head – almost everyone either has a similar story or knows someone who experienced a head injury. When I was a young girl I was hanging upside down from the top of the swing set and fell straight on my head.

What we don’t often realize is these blows to the head can create a number of conditions that will develop in the months and years following the injury - ADD, headaches, anxiety, depression and many more.

In fact we’re seeing it now with our professional athletes where research studies are finding that so many repeated blows to the head from playing football, soccer, etc. has a lasting adverse effect on the Neuro Net.

Often times the impact of the injury isn’t apparent immediately after the injury – in the weeks and months after a blow to the head, look for signs of stuttering, lack of concentration, possibly drifting off (or what we would call daydreaming), irritability, defiance, disassociating with friends and even feeling anxious and argumentative.

If you notice yourself or your child exhibiting any of these symptoms or behaviors after a blow to the head there is help. Having a brain assessment after an injury is a helpful tool to see if the injury has actually created damage to the neural pathways.

Depression can affect us all no matter whether we’re living a life of luxury or have lost everything in the economic upheaval.

Depression does not skip you because of your social standing, bank account, accomplishments, even if there’s nothing but happy moments around you, why then would you still feel depressed? Research has found that the brain out of balance and the lack of harmony between the lobes can cause imbalances that could possibly lead to disorders such as depression, anxiety, insomnia and more. Most of us turn to medications, but these same medications can possibly cause the afflictions we are expecting them to treat.

A Message from Mary

Many of the people who come to see us at Awoken Life Brainwave Optimization® are seeking relief for sleep problems, head injuries, stress and other brain-related issues. They’ve heard of the non-invasive technology that can help them get back to themselves and are looking forward to hitting the “re-set” button in returning their brain to a state of balance and harmony.

Brainwave Optimization® is an algorithm carried in as a tone or sound and is much like the powerful vibrational sound produced by the Tibetan Singing Bowls that are gaining in popularity as a healing therapy to increase the immune system, reduce stress and relieve pain. 

For centuries, the Tibetan people have practiced sound healing with these mystical metal bowls and these “singing bowls” are used worldwide for meditation, music, relaxation and personal well-being.

The resonance produced by these handcrafted bowls can improve immune function, lower heart rate and blood pressure, relieve pain and dramatically reduce stress levels.
Science stands behind the effects of therapeutic sound. Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of medical oncology and integrative medicine at the Strang-Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York has conducted extensive research on how singing bowls can stimulate healing.

What Is Brainwave Optimization®?

Brainwave Optimization® is a computer-guided way to help you to achieve a uniquely deep state of relaxation, through the power of your own brain. A deeply relaxed brain may support a variety of goals for well-being, recovery, or performance optimization.

Brainwave Optimization® acts as a catalyst to support the brain to optimize itself and facilitates the brain to adjust its own brainwave activity, in order to balance and optimize itself. The revolutionary Brainwave Optimization® process is uniquely valuable in that it supports one’s own brain to do its own work, in a way unlike any other approach that has come before.

According to Dr. Gaynor, therapeutic sound affects our bodies on a cellular and sub-cellular level. “There is not an organ system in our body that is not affected by sound, music, and vibration,” he says. “…This evidence suggests that the tones of the singing bowls stimulate a physiological immune response and that sound therapy can actually help strengthen our immune system.”

Here at Awoken Life Brainwave Optimization, we have incorporated the Tibetan Singing Bowls into our practice with great success. Our clients report that they are much more likely to remain calm in a stressful environment after a short 30-minute session with the bowls. Like an inner sound “massage,” the vibrational tones of the bowls gently guide you into a state of deep relaxation. 

There is no doubt that when your brain is in synchronicity, you are more focus and balanced emotionally. While sound therapy isn’t without its skeptics, recent research supports its efficacy – in 2008, the Journal of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine published a review concluding that the subjects participating in a two-year sound-healing study showed greater cognitive functioning, better sleep, reduced pain and fewer headaches.

South County Magazine readers are invited to call for a complimentary consultation and 50% off the first session with the Tibetan Singing Bowls. Meditation classes are also offered in conjunction with the singing bowls for group and private relaxation sessions.
