Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Consciousness what is it?
Scientists at Lige in Europe, under the direction of Steven Laureys, are researching what makes us conscious. People that are in all kinds of different states of consciousness, mostly comatose, are sent to what part of the brain lights up or doesn't. They look for areas that can respond to stimulus. There are of course different levels of consciousness, even thought it does not result in a muscle response.
There are two different levels of consciousness, external and internal. The external lies in the sensory network and the internal is our self-consciousness. When someone is comatose, neither of these systems are operating correctly. If there is no response to pain, commands, sounds this does not mean that the patient is unconscious. They could have damage in the motor cortex of the brain.
When a patient has been evaluated at this institute, which involves many different levels of experience of consciousness, they can learn to communicate again by the use of trans-cranial direct stimulation. This can stimulate direct areas of the brain and so communication can be achieved.
LENS can help the brain to achieve it's highest level of functioning.
Researchers at UCLA have found more evidence about how the brain and the gut bacteria are connected. They conducted exams that included fMRI's, questionnaires, and examined gut bacteria. They found that of the 63 healthy people examined, if they had elevated metabolite indole, which is connected to the amino acid tryptophan, they would be prone to eating for pleasure, or over eating, which in turn could lead to food addictions. When these intestinal bacteria are elevated then the people had a greater connection to the brain's reward network, the nucleus accumbens and the amygdala.
LENS can help the brain to defrag and find a greater balance.
The reality of Brain Games....
There is a new industry that is coming to view. This could be a $100 billion industry. There is reason for caution. Many of these systems claim that they can improve mental acuity, concentration and memory processing speed. Wouldn't we all love to have this ability as we age. However, most of these claims are not supported by research. Many of these games can improve the ability to increase memory within the system, however, this ability does not extend into general practice. This is labeled far transfer. This information is from Forbes magazine, where you can do further research.
LENS neurofeedback can improve the brain function, with out the games.
A new study from JAMA included information about brain damage and football players. Brain damage was diagnosed in 87% of donated brains of 202 football players, including all but one of 111 brains of NFL players. Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy or CTE is the term used for brain damage that occurs after repeated blunt impact, like football head tackles. The symptoms of a damaged brain can include memory loss, depression, dementia, sensitivity to light, lack of energy.
LENS can help people to recover from brain injury, the sooner the better. Don"t just get side lined, the long term consequences can be problematic.
Does being in the flow mean that we are having a spiritual experience or is this our natural state? Two people were asked these questions, two people with PhD. after their names. One of these people is a clinical psychologist by the name of Ben Michaelis PhD. He states that we are pattern seeking. This means that we want things to be familiar. But when we are stressed this pattern seeking is even more important. We are also used to letting go of our control to others, especially at birth when we have to depend on others for our survival. This letting go and pattern seeking can be related to finding the flow in ourselves by a steady letting go of control and here we go....
The next person is a neuroscientist, his name is Judson Brewer M.D., PhD. He has studied this human condition and has found that we are much like someone driving a car with both feet. This is called the default mode network. We have the brakes on while the rest of us is trying to work from a place of flow. Letting go of the small stuff, so the Grace of God can flow and that this is our natural state. This is not forced.
LENS neurofeedback can create this flow in the brain. We are able to let go and enjoy the ride.
Excessive probiotic use can result in a significant accumulation of bacteria, which can create brain fogginess and belly bloating. In a small study of 30 patients who were taking probiotics some researchers found that the over use of probiotics can result in a condition, in the small intestine that creates high levels of D-lactic acid. The D-lactic acid creates fermentation of sugars in food in the small intestine. This acid can be temporarily toxic to brain cells causing problems with cognition, thinking and sense of time. Some of the patients had to quit their jobs because of the brain fog. To find out more go to neurosciencenews.com.
LENS neurofeedback can help to balance the brain mechanism. It is a good way to clear out the fog and get going.
Researchers at the University of Illinois, surveyed 377,000 high school students and found very limited evidence of a difference in birth order. They did find that first born people have a slightly higher I.Q., score higher on extroversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. They found that the differences were only .02 statistically. You will not be able to see the differences with the naked eye or tell the difference if they were sitting together.
LENS neurofeedback can help the brain to clear out any of the pieces that have been damaged. It works.
