Is this technology safe for me?

Although this technology and this method, is very safe, some people should not be using it.
(The same thing happens in some action video games that can induce brainwave entrainment through flashing colours and fast switching images)
Those who should not use this method include:
  • Those who are prone to or have had seizures
  • Epileptic,
  • Pregnant
  • Wear a pacemaker
Individuals under the influence of medication or drugs should consult a physician before the use of this method.
Children under the age of 18 are to be examined by a physician for epilepsy or illnesses that may contribute to seizures prior to the use of the AntiAnxietyWaves method, as they are more susceptible to seizures.

 


Can these recordings help me deal with anxiety ?

Yes they can.
By listening to the recording and practicing relaxation you start to desensitize your brain.
This gradually reverses the situation which set up anxiety (usually some kind of physical, emotional or mental stress) making you less prone to irrational worries and panic attacks.
Of course you can enhance a lot your results by practicing diaphragmatic breathing and some kind of progressive relaxation.

 


How should I listen to these recordings ?

You may lie on your back, or sit somewhere comfortable, with head and neck support.
Lose your belt and any tight clothing. Take off your shoes, glasses, contact lenses etc.

You may listen to these recordings with, or without headphones, by listening using headphones you should get much better results.
You should listen to these recordings at the highest possible volume while still being comfortable. The idea is that the louder the sound, the deeper the brainwave entrainment may be (due to the increased stimulation to the brain). But comfort is the most important. If the volume is too high, you are working against the purpose of this method, so when in doubt adjust to a lower volume.
Under no circumstances should you drive a car or operate potentially dangerous machinery while listening to these recordings.

What if the effects are too strong for me ?

If the effects feel too strong with headphones then you should begin listening without headphones until you get more used, giving your brain and mind time to adjust.

    Hey Bill,

    Just tried my first sound recording and it was great. I started to yawn pretty excessively though afterwards. Is this a sign that I’m stimulating my vagus nerve? I did some Internet research but most just talks about the bad connection between yawning and the vagus nerve in heart conditions etc (which I don’t have). There was very little information on how/if vagal nerve stimulation produces yawning. Anyway, Id love to hear your thoughts and know if this is a sign that the breathing is stimulating my vagus!

    Thanks,

    Morgan

      Hi Morgan,
      Yawning is a simple natural breathing reflex; don’t try to suppress it, encourage it… When you feel the urge to yawn try to stretch and make sounds too; it feels good.
      Some times when we relax deeply it’s quite common to yawn (especially after relaxation).
      This also can be caused because during relaxation our breath slows down and now our body needs to take a deep breath to compensate.
      Warm regards

      Hi Javier,
      Being for so many years in anxiety can make your nervous system quite over-sensitive and that could be the root cause of all these anxiety symptoms you are going through.
      You could start with some anti-anxiety relaxation techniques to cool your nervous system down; there are many options in this blog, try the vagus nerve diaphragmatic breathing technique and of-course listen to the anti-anxiety sound therapy melodies.
      Maybe you should see a therapist too, to find out about the root causes for your anxiety; but practicing relaxation is a must to help yourself deal with anxiety.
      Take care and feel free to contact me at bill@antianxietywaves.com for any help with the techniques and for any further info.
      Warm regards
      Bill
