Our brain oscillates in five different rhythms. The Beta Rhythm 14-30 Hz regulates wakefulness, concentration, alertness and fear. The Alpha Rhythm 7.5Hz -13 Hz gives us rest, relaxation, and a capacity to fall asleep. The Theta Rhythm 4-7Hz supports REM sleep, memory, creativity and intuition. It arises in light sleep and deep meditation. The Delta Rhythm 0.5-3.5Hz occurs in deep sleep and is important for regeneration, a healthy immune system and all healing processes.
The Gamma wave 30-100Hz is seen by MRI studies to be predominant in the brains of long-term meditators. It is connected with peak performance, strong focus and transcendental states and may play a part in the phenomena of “spontaneous remission”.
Lifestyle pressures such as overwork, loss and unfinished business can affect a change in the brain rhythms. We become constantly on-alert and tensions become more chronic. A change in the brain rhythms is a precursor to a change in our well-being.
To work with these issues, Peter Mandel has created several Holistic Induction devices. The programs of the holistic induction therapy mirror to the brain its own harmonious rhythms and remind it of the original correct oscillatory behavior. The Thalamus, which is the part of the brain that monitors impressions coming from the outside (such as hearing, sight and sensation) and is considered the “gate of consciousness,” takes the electrical impulses which have been introduced through the skin. When it recognizes these impulses as system analogous ones which correspond to its own original rhythms, then it will catalyze the whole human organism to resonate and oscillate in the natural “normal” brainwave rhythm. Medical studies have shown that holistic induction therapy does not alter the characteristics of the brain waves themselves, but only affects their rhythmical behavior. Holistic induction therefore does not treat the brain, but treats like the brain “an induction of familiar impulses.”
This allows potentially blocked symptoms to return to normalcy and disease symptoms connected with specific information blockages can move towards resolution.
