Bin­au­ral Beats

Natural Solutions - - Health­mat­ters Health -

Bin­au­ral acous­tics are cre­ated when two dif­fer­ent and pure tones are si­mul­ta­ne­ously pre­sented, one to each ear. For ex­am­ple, if 120 Hz are played in the left ear and 130 Hz are played in the right ear, the per­ceived fre­quency of the sig­nal will be 10 Hz. Be­cause a bin­au­ral tone of­ten oc­curs at low wave­lengths, it is some­times called au­di­tory il­lu­sion. In or­der for you to de­tect bin­au­ral acous­tics, you need to wear head­phones like those cre­ated by Erin Stair, MD, called Zen­band. Many Zen­band users re­port im­prove­ments in deal­ing with stress and anx­i­ety, de­pres­sion, sleep­less­ness, and in­abil­ity to fo­cus. If you are look­ing for a holis­tic, nat­u­ral, ef­fec­tive, and non­in­va­sive ap­proach to your sleep­less nights, bin­au­ral beats might just be for you.

Some re­cent re­search sug­gests that bin­au­ral stim­u­la­tion calms down the au­to­nomic ner­vous sys­tem, stim­u­lates the parasym­pa­thetic ner­vous sys­tem (va­gus nerve), and al­ters brain con­nec­tiv­ity in other ways. The­o­ret­i­cally, the bin­au­ral acous­tics will en­train an in­di­vid­ual’s brain to an ex­ter­nal rhythm, and the tones need to be pre­sented in a spe­cific se­quence and at a spe­cific fre­quency for best re­sults. (En­train­ing is the equiv­a­lent of your brain fol­low­ing a rhythm like your mus­cles do while danc­ing to mu­sic.) This re­search is good news for any­one look­ing to im­prove their sleep, re­duce stress and anx­i­ety, im­prove fo­cus, and al­le­vi­ate headaches. Some doc­tors are even us­ing bin­au­ral tracks to help sol­diers suf­fer­ing from PTSD. Source: bloom­ing­well­ness.com
