It appears that everyone has abnormal or deformed brain patterns from the food, water, toxins, wrong food combinations, and negative thinking patterns, which we create.

The need for oxygen


A healthy brain consumes 25 % of the body’s oxygen supply and 70 % of its blood glucose. Cut off the blood supply for more than four minutes and brain cells quickly begin to die. Even if blood flow is just slightly reduced, the resulting reduction in oxygen, if chronic, can contribute to damage from impaired thinking to disorders of senility. In addition, there are 75 trillion cells dependent upon you for oxygen. One needs oxygen for every cell, tissue, and organ to function correctly.





What are sources of reduced oxygen?


1.  Stress and anxiety literally “takes our breath away”.
2.  We eat oxygen-depleted food (microwave) and drink oxygen-depleted water.
3.  Some people “over exercise” or do heavy “anaerobic exercises”.
4.  Various body systems may have poor circulation.
5.  The energy demands for producing our lifestyle may cause “adrenal burnout”.
6.  Pain may be causing us to have shallow breathing and limited oxygen.
7.  Our Sympathetic Nervous System and Adrenals are on “overload” or “burnout”
       (and it is operating anaerobically.)

New Research shows how oxygen can be increased through the influence of the Heart,
without being Controlled by the Brain


The Heart starts beating in an unborn foetus before the brain is formed. The heartbeat does not need a connection to the brain to keep beating. The heart has its own independent nervous system. There are at least 40.000 neurons in the heart – as many as are found in various subcortical centres of the brain.

Core heart feeling affects both branches of the automatic nervous system. This reduces the activity of the sympathetic nervous system (the  system, which speeds up the heart) and increases the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system (which slows down the heart and relaxes the body’s inner systems) with increased efficiency. These two branches of the nervous system balance and enhance the body systems (McCraty R.)

In our bodies, there are body systems that get out of synchronisation with each other, because there may be poor communication between body’s systems or there may be blockages (in energy flow). Because the heart is the strongest biological oscillator in the human system, even beyond the brain – the rest of the body’s system can be pulled into entrainment with the heart’s rhythms. As an example, when we are in a state of deep love, (understanding, compassion, caring) or appreciation, the brain synchronizes – comes into harmony – with the heart’s harmonious rhythms. This state of head/heart “entrainment” occurs precisely when the heart rhythms complete one cycle every ten seconds (0,1 Hz.). When the brain waves entrain with heart rhythms at 0.1 Hz., the subjects in our studies report heightened intuitive clarity and a greater sense of well-being. According to our studies, we transcend our ordinary performance and feel in harmony with something else – what we are really coming into synchronisation with, is with ourselves. Not only do we feel more relaxed and at peace, but the entrained state increases our ability to perform well and offers numerous health benefits. In entrainment, we are at our optimal functioning capacity. (McCraty) This is the approximate resonating motion frequency.

However, the brain can override the heart, when we over-analise situations, going around and around in an attempt to figure things out, keeping us from seeing other options. The head often leads us into rationalising and conceptualising an issue instead of actualising what the heart already knows and has communicated. When we react to life from the head without joining forces with the heart, our single-mindedness often leads us into childish inelegant behaviour. (Martin)

Most scientists previously believed the brain made all of the decisions. The Laceys found that when the brain sent “orders” to the heart through the nervous system, the heart did not automatically obey. Instead, the heart responded as if it had its own distinctive logic. The selectivity of the heat’s response indicated that it was not a merely mechanical organ responding to a signal from the brain. Rather, the heart’s response appears to depend on the nature of the particular task at hand and the type of mental processing it required. (Lacey)

Even more intriguing, the Laceys also found in their studies that the heart appeared to be sending messages back to the brain, that the brain not only understood, but obeyed. It appears these messages from the heart could actually influence a person’s behaviour. (Lacey)

Rhythmic beating patterns of the heart are transformed into neural impulses that directly affect the electrical activity of the higher brain centre – those involved in cognitive and emotional processing. (Frysinger & McCraty) The heart can override and balance the Brain through Entrainment through the Parasympathetic Nervous System.

Evaluations after research on Healing practices like Sound & Colour Therapy show the Beta waves decreasing, (meaning the stress levels are decreasing in the body), the alpha waves increasing (meaning the body systems are relaxing), and the theta waves increasing (meaning the ability to have deep sleep, and ease of sleep).

Also, research shows changes in the before and after brain patterns. It appears that everyone has these abnormal or deformed brain patterns from the food, water, toxins, wrong food combinations, and negative thinking patterns we create. These abnormalities were observed on over a thousand people analysed at the Young Life Medical Research Clinic.

Chronic sympathetic (nervous system) activation

When we accumulate too many stressors (in a day), the body may fail to terminate the physiological responses. This can lead to chronic stress (sympathetic activity burnout and adrenal fatigue) accompanied by inappropriate elevations of cortisol, insulin, CRH, Catecholamines, adrenaline, epinephrine, noradrenaline, and other stress hormones. This leads to immuno-suppression, which is associated with subsequent infection, illness, and even potential long-term psychiatric complication. (Fry A. & Chrousos G.) Excess stimulation of the Sympathetic Nervous System causes Leptin resistance in the fat cells leading to adrenaline resistance. (Bryon Richards)

Some of the other health complications include higher levels of phobic anxiety and or panic, depression and an increased risk of cardiac death. Cardiac Disease alters Cardiac Autonomic balance of cardiac neural regulation (i.e. decreased parasympathetic coupled with increased sympathetic activity); they are also the patients at greater risk for sudden death. (Billman)

The Medical Conditions caused by too much Sympathetic stimulation of excessive stress are:

Obesity,
Diabetes,
Congestive Heart Failure,
Depression,
Insulin Resistance,
Hypertension,
Sleep Apnea,
Anxiety.

Psycho-social / Behavioural conditions lead to:

Chronic Stress,
Social Isolation,
Sleep Deprivation,
Sedentary Lifestyle,
Smoking,
Hostility,
Unhealthy diet,
Abuse of Stimulants. (Curtis)

A well-designed study demonstrates that those, who suffer emotional stress, are more likely to experience physical stress and vice versa. (Singh)

Disorders associated with Dys-regulation of the Stress System causes:

Severe Chronic Disease,
Melancholic Depression,
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder,
Alcohol and Narcotic Withdrawal,
Hyperthyroidism,
Anorexia Nervosa,
Panic Disorder,
Chronic Active Alcoholism,
Malnutrition,
Premenstrual Tension Syndrome

Stress, exercise and healing

Eventually (too much stress) may lead to no stress response. The body is just too tapped out to mount an attack. The system might be producing so many stress hormones chronically, that when there is an additional challenge, it cannot produce more. The gas pedal is already to the floor. (Berardi).

Aerobic exercise has been found beneficial for anxiety (conditions of Sympathetic burnout), but weight training exercise did not reduce chronic sympathetic activation. (Raglin) It is well established that aerobic exercise can alter autonomic balance (increasing parasympathetic activity and decreasing sympathetic activity). (Billman Journal of Applied Physiology, 92 (2).

Exercise training too frequently, excessive exercise, or one who may not allow for adequate recovery from intensive exercise, or too much sympathetic stress stimulation – all this creates a symptom of “overtraining” and “overreacting” causing:

Decreased motor coordination,
Decreased force production,
Altered immunity,
Hormonal and autonomic nervous system exhaustion activity, and
Emotional, mood, and sleep disturbances.

The symptoms can last for a few days up to two months. If left unchecked, it could be a full year before you can feel good again. (Fry)

Exercise drives the activation of the Sympathetic Nervous Activation System (anaerobic). Excess sympathetic over-stimulation results in:

Performance incompetence,
Hyper excitability,
High fatigue,
Apathy,
Altered mood state,
Altered immune and diminished reproductive function,
Increased neural demand,
Hypoglycemia,
High plasma lactate,
Depleted testosterone,
High cortisol and
A need to increase oxygen requirements. (Fry)

There seems to be benefit derived from magnetic and spiritual healing practice with an effect on the third nervous system, the Enteric Nervous System, which includes the motor and sensory neurons, information processing circuits, glial cell directing the muscles surrounding the gut-brain system. This system has set programs, which run the body systems in this area of the body. It regulates the normal digestive system and metabolism, but not much is known about “complex system” (Cudler)

How do we get better sleep?

The Parasympathetic Nervous System is fuelled by the neurotransmitter Serotonin. Serotonin is created from Trytophan. Serotonin also makes Melatonin, which enables us to sleep better. Colour & Sound therapy triggers the Parasympathetic Nervous System as well and the brain waves slow down into Alpha or Theta. The brain is into its optimal pattern promoting Melatonin only when the conditions are right.

Adrenal “overload” and “burnout”

People with adrenal hypofunction (high) never feel really well. They are typically chronically tired and/or have recurrent sub-acute illness, allergies, arthritis, colds, viruses, diabetic, hypoglycaemic, poor stamia, chronic fatigue, and various sleep problems. Excessive adrenal activity can cause the thyroid to atrophy and therefore lead to an under active thyroid. Medically they treat the thyroid. However, if the thyroid is hypoactive (under active over long periods) due to excessive adrenal activity, treating the thyroid will do very little to correct the problem.
