Reprogram Your Mind for Health, Happiness & Success!

According to the US Center for Disease Control (CDC), 90% of illness and disease is caused by stress!  Dr. Bruce Lipton of Stanford University has shown that the real number is closer to 95%.  This fact bears repeating:  90-95% of all illness and disease is caused by physiological stress, which is an accumulation of situational stress and other factors over time.  The United Nations has called stress, “The 20th Century Disease” and it has become a global epidemic. Scientists have proven that conditioning, beliefs, perceptions and stress play a large role in our emotional and physical makeup.  Your body releases chemicals and hormones that cause you stress when you have conscious and unconscious negative thoughts. The cells in your body then save the negative information, like a computer saves a file on its hard drive.  This negative information is then stored in a part of your brain called the Amigdala, where the nervous system can retrieve past memories and cause you to react in the present as if the past is happening all over again. We all have perceptions of our environment that are stored in our cellular memory.  If you have experienced repeated stressful situations in childhood, or at any time in your life, the nervous system and other organs within your body contain hormonal and chemical messages that support that negative internal reality.  It is from these types of stressful experiences that subconscious negative perceptions and beliefs are born and then stored in the cells of your body.  These subconscious beliefs affect your behavior and compete with your conscious beliefs and desires. Examples of these types of subconscious negative beliefs are:  feeling that you don’t deserve to be liked loved and accepted, feelings of [...]

Relationship Rx: Prescription for Successful Relationships

Everyone wants to have successful relationships; whether it is with business associates, family, friends, or a romantic partner.  However, at times, we have all fallen short in handling the mechanics of relationships. We all go to the doctor for regular check-ups, but how often do we check the health of our relationships?  Just like our physical body, relationships (whether they are professional, social, or romantic) require check-ups and maintenance. There are times when relationship surgery, or a good strong prescription, is required. The most effective way to build and maintain healthy relationships is through relationship re-programming and conscious healthy communication.  Our subconscious relationship programming controls 95% of our interactions, so if we do not have a healthy subconscious program, our conscious relationship intentions will fail.  All of us have a relationship map that we bring forward from childhood conditioning.  The relationship map we carry affects our subconscious beliefs, perceptions, expectations, and behavior.  If we have negative relationship programming, we may react with survival-fear behavior.  If the mind is in survival-fear mode we become closed, shutdown, or resistant in our communications. The subconscious need to follow our map and fulfill any negative relationship programming (that which is familiar) and protect ourselves from hurt, rejection, or abandonment is stronger than the need to get along, be open and positively surrender in a relationship.  The end result is a prescription for an unhealthy relationship. In order to prevent negative relationship programming from influencing our relationships, it is important to delete any sabotaging relationship programming and program in a healthy relationship map. By taking control of our relationship map, we can build healthier, more successful relationships. The second component of successful relationships is conscious healthy communication.  A vital step [...]

Press Release: Neurofeedback Offers Hope for Chemo Brain Sufferers

Neurofeedback brain training regimen reverses cognitive impairment symptoms in over 90% of chemo brain patients tested, a new study by The Applied Brain Research Foundation of Ohio shows.   Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) May 01, 2013 -- Zengar Institute, Inc. announced results today of a new peerreviewed study measuring the effects of NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback on patients suffering post-cancer cognitive impairment (PCCI) or “chemo-brain”. The research, conducted by the Applied Brain Research Foundation of Ohio, reported a 91% success rate for PCCI patients using NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback’s brain training system. 21 of the 23 participants in the study reported a complete reversal of the cognitive impairment or “mental fog” commonly associated with chemotherapy treatments. The results of the study were published online April 12, 2013 in Integrative Cancer Therapies, a professional Research journal. "Almost everyone improved and returned to normal levels. That was surprising and gratifying”, research director Jean Alvarez told The Cleveland Plain Dealer earlier this week. The neurofeedback system’s designer, Zengar Institute, Inc. released a statement through Operations Director, Samantha Diavatis, “The results are exciting, but behind the numbers is the fact that our system provided real relief for people struggling with cognitive impairment.” As many as 70% of patients who undergo treatment for cancer experience diminished cognitive function side effects, including impaired memory, loss of verbal fluidity, or increased anxiety or depression. While the cause of PCCI is largely unknown, chemo brain has become a subject of growing interest within the medical community. The NeurOptimal® neurofeedback system used in the study was not altered or customized to treat chemo brain specifically, nor does the training software target specific neural areas to ‘fix’ cognitive performance problems. Instead, the unique NeurOptimal® program prompts the brain’s own natural [...]
