Binaural beats basically involve listening to two tones through headphones. One tone enters each ear, and each of has a different frequency. The brain processes these two sounds and produces a pulse (or beat) which repeats rapidly, at a rate that’s equal to the frequency difference between the pitches of the initial two tones. For example, if you listen to sounds with frequencies of 300 and 310 Hz, your brain will produce and ‘hear’ a sound pulsing at a frequency of 10 Hz. It is this 10 Hz beat which will influence the frequency of the brainwaves your brain is producing – this is known as brainwave entrainment, and binaural beats are the most popular and widely known type of brainwave entrainment technology.
When the brain starts to work at the same frequency as a binaural beat, patterns in brain wave movement can be altered. This might help people reduce their amount of stress, which can ultimately lead to better overall health. At current standing, stress is seen as one of the top causes of cancer and various other serious ailments. Along with the reduction of stress, scientists are speculating that binaural beats will have an impact in stimulating the natural creativity of a person’s brain. All of my brainwave frequency audios utilize this technique to generate the following brainwave frequency ranges:
|Frequency range||Name||Associated with:|
|> 40 Hz||Gamma waves||Higher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, fear, and consciousness|
|13–39 Hz||Beta waves||Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition, and or paranoia|
|7–13 Hz||Alpha waves||Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness, REM sleep, Dreams|
|8–12 Hz||Mu waves||Mu rhythm, Sensorimotor rhythm|
|4–7 Hz||Theta waves||Deep meditation/relaxation, NREM sleep|
|< 4 Hz||Delta waves||Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness|

There are certain things that you need to be aware of when you are looking at different binaural beat programs. For one thing, the quality of the product can vary greatly. Not every hypnosis MP3 or CD is created equal and unfortunately, many entrainment companies are only using stock recordings. In these cases, the quality of the audio will be compromised… especially when in MP3 format.
So when you are searching make sure you seek out original and unique products where the MP3’s were created with as little compression as possible. The next thing to be aware of is what kind of technology is being used. Although binaural beats tend to be the most well known and popular kind of brainwave entrainment, there are actually other more effective types to consider using.
Monaural beats and isochronic tones have proven to provide good results in a much shorter time frame. You will notice that many producers offer these and some will even offer recordings that combine all three types of brainwave entrainment.With regards to price, you may have noticed that the cost can vary greatly with the different products. Keep in mind that a higher price does not necessarily guarantee an excellent product. Although some of the highest priced recordings will be excellent it is very possible to get a high-quality hypnosis downloads and brainwave music for a very reasonable price.
Binaural Beats or Isochronic tones are a relatively new technique which have been used by many people over the past couple of decades. Most people will be familiar with Binaural Beats, as they have been a main feature of rave music over the last few years. Binaural Beats use two different frequency ranges to produce tones that are then added to one another. Many proponents claim that listening to binaural beats will increase concentration and focus, promote relaxation, reduce stress and tension, and even reduce migraines.
However in a recent study conducted by a team from the University of Southern California, researchers concluded thatIsochronic tones may in fact have a significant effect on the central nervous system. The central nervous system is responsible for controlling such functions as heartbeat regulation, blood pressure, muscle tension, swallowing, speech, vision, and muscle movement. These biological processes occur without conscious control and serve a vital role in our everyday lives. During a brain wave entrainment session, the Isochronic tones cause the central nervous system to respond to what they are hearing by producing corresponding brain wave patterns.
The researchers discovered that binaural beats produced a significant increase in the HZ frequency. The HZ frequency occurs naturally in all humans and is a natural oscillation within the brain. During an Isochronic beat session, the binaural beats with the highest frequency will be in constant contact with theta frequency, which is the state of meditation. Theta frequency is linked to deep states of relaxation and inner peace. It has been proven that when people are in the state of deep relaxation, their brains run at a much lower activity level.
These frequencies also produced a significant reduction in the beta frequency. People who listened to the binaural beats had significantly less anxious feelings. This effect occurred because the Isochronic tones sent a signal to the brain through the auditory nerve. beta waves normally indicate calm states but during periods of stress, the brain normally produces the beta wave frequency. The reduction in the beta frequency produced by the binaural beats led to less anxiety. Other research has shown that it can also help in the healing of various psychological conditions like panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
There is a difference between binaural beats, monaural tones and other brainwave entrainment methods. Binaural beats are actually a series of short sounds, which are sent to the brain through headphone, thus bypassing the conscious mind. Monaural tones are exactly the opposite. They are sounds of a single frequency, which are played in stereo. While a binaural frequency is closer to the gamma wave frequency, a monaural frequency is closer to the delta wave frequency, which has been associated with relaxation.
Binaural Beat Therapy has been used since the 1970s with great success in treating sleep disorders, insomnia, depression and anxiety as well as stress. Binaural Beat Therapy is believed to work by altering the brain waves through the medium of headphones. It produces a specific set of brain wave entrainment frequencies, which produce the desired effect in the subconscious mind. Once the desired frequency is obtained, the brain waves naturally shift into the delta frequency range. Binaural Beat Therapy can be used by individuals suffering from insomnia and other sleep disorders by producing positive brain wave entrainment frequencies that lead to relaxation.
Binaural Beat Therapy is often used to treat different types of diseases. It has been found to effectively reduce symptoms associated with depression, migraines, chronic pain, ADHD, chronic fatigue syndrome, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), OCD, and many other diseases and disorders including ADD, ADHD, epilepsy, and many others. It is also commonly used to treat patients who have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep due to other factors such as jet lag. These frequencies can help patients fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer so that they can feel refreshed when they wake up.
Binaural Beat Therapy works on the basis of the principle of binaural beats, which involves two tones that are each tuned to the same frequency. These frequencies can be combined into a single track, which can be played in one ear. The difference in these frequencies is what creates the effect, which is often used to treat different problems. A trained expert usually plays a series of tracks in either one ear and the resulting effect is produced in the other ear. There are different types of Binaural Beats available and they include monaural beats, which use only one frequency; stereo beats, which use two tones; and also phasing beats, which play two different frequencies at the same time.
Anybody who has ever fought with an addiction and tried their best and failed will know that it is not as easy as just giving up. Our bodies do not like change and prefer to stay in whatever state that the addiction has lulled them into. Any changes, even good ones, will be met by panic and hostility by your conscious mind. Our subconscious mind can help to re-format our thinking so we can overcome the fear, stress, and biological changes that always occur when we are fighting our addictions.
Binaural beats and meditation can help you change the way you view the relationship between your addiction and yourself and will help you beat that addiction once and for all. Stress, for most of us, will rise it’s ugly head when we try to fight an addiction. The relaxing effects that binaural beats can produce can help us remove that stress from the equation. They will also help to modify our behavior so that there is none of that falling off the wagon behavior that so often accompanies addiction.
Binaural beats can help you get to a condition where you will be able to sleep easier. They can soothe you and help you to relax. If you are struggling every night to relax and get to sleep at bedtime if you are tossing and turning and pillow pounding and letting loose the odd expletive, then binaural beats may just be the answer you have been looking for.
Laying with your eyes closed and listening to the beats will soon help you to drift into a deep and relaxing sleep. They will relieve you of all the stress and make you forget all the worries that are keeping you awake at night. People can also listen to binaural sounds in the morning to wake up more clear-headed.
If you have ever suffered from chronic pain you know how exhausting and draining it can be. It becomes so easy to get into the habit of focusing only on the pain and even second guessing how bad it will be this time. Our brains can become so focused on the pain that it can make it seem that it is worse than it actually is. Binaural beats can enable you to direct your mind’s focus away from the pain and onto something more pleasant. They can potentially help you to reduce the pain that you are experiencing.
Most people will have absolutely no problems using this type of entrainment product and they are known to be completely safe. However, there are a few groups of people who should be cautious of brainwave entrainment products and may want to consult their doctor before using them, or not use them at all. People who should be cautious of binaural beats are: people who have seizures, children, pregnant women, people who have heart issues or wear a pacemaker.
