The Flow of Elements in a Brain Health Upgrade Session01/01/2021, Samahita
Circulation to and through your brain, known as cerebral blood flow as well as the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, indicates how well your brain performs and subsequently how you feel. You might be looking in several places to improve your health or fix what is bothering you. To do so you must upgrade your brain’s health.
Samahita’s Brain Health Upgrade program is to help you care for and improve the state of your brain and how it works through organic ancient practices from yoga and meditation as well as modern technology and biohacks.
STEP ONE: Mitochondria Enhancement With Red Light & Near-Infrared Light Therapy
Light therapy enhances your cellular energy level, so you feel better and your brain can work better. When your brain works better you will do everything with much greater involvement and energy.
Light therapy is as old as the sun. Human beings thrived and grew due to exposure to the full light spectrum of the sun. Today we limit our time in the sun so we are not overexposed to ultraviolet rays and their damaging effects. But 20 to 30 minutes of direct light and sun exposure will increase health and energy due to the benefits of visible white light and infrared rays. One literally receives thousands to millions of light energy units known as joules. As a therapy away from the sun modern technology has learned to harness visible red light and invisible near-infrared (NIR) light to penetrate the skin’s surface and enact healing to both organs and skin, including the brain.
Light therapy is essential for our modern lifestyle that limits our time outdoors and even warns against direct sun exposure. Your cells want and need light. As a result, you can produce more energy. The process is self-reinforcing. Light therapy has been studied through intensive scientific research over the past 40 years, specifically under an area known as photobiomodulation. The combination of red light, which offers healing to the skin, and NIR as healing to deeper organs, results in a light therapy that improves our energy and healing, upgrades our health, and enhances how our brain functions. A brain whose energy workload is freed up because it works better due to being healthier can achieve higher grade energy production.
Studied health benefits include:
- Enhanced blood circulation
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Increased muscle recovery
- Improved skin tone and glow
- Reduced wrinkles and scars
- Improved wound healing
- Pain reduction
- Lymphatic flow boost
- Increased cellular growth
- Enhanced fertility
- Increased testosterone.
A reduction of inflammation on both the skin and inner organs improves health and aids the reduction of inflammation in the brain to improve brain function.
STEP TWO: Brain Wave Modulation Through Audio-Visual Entrainment
Brainwave modulation through Audio-Visual Entrainment is done so you enter complete relaxation and cultivate the meditator’s mind. AVE stimulates certain brainwave states, in particular the alpha range, to improve brain function, reduce inflammation in the brain, help you think better and behave nicer.
A device that utilises a cutting edge, non-invasive, drug-free approach to help you sleep, relax, repair, learn, and just overall function better. This amazing technology uses lights and sounds called Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) in specific configurations to guide you into proper functioning brainwave states to improve your health, mental functioning, memory, sleep, mood, cognition and stress management – to help you achieve peak mental and physical performance, get better sleep, and increase energy levels.
AVE has been shown to produce dramatic increases in cerebral blood flow, neurotransmitters, dissociative states, efficient brain activity and sound mental health. AVE has also proven itself in inducing meditative states and treating anxiety.
AVE used in the evening is most effective for helping people fall asleep by turning off or shutting down the mental “chatter” after a busy day. People who have difficulty falling asleep often have low levels of serotonin. AVE helps boost serotonin which converts to melatonin. Melatonin is an important antioxidant and is known as the hormone for sleep, essential to help you sleep.
AVE sessions used during the day reduce stress and anxiety, which also provides for a better quality of sleep – the more relaxed your day, the more relaxed your sleep.
Negative thoughts not only impair anyone working out striving to perform their best, but they also reduce serotonin levels in the brain. A high level of serotonin is directly linked to superior job performance and leadership ability.
AVE is very effective for relieving your low mood because it very quickly dissociates and stabilizes brainwaves. It also increases cerebral blood flow. People with low moods also have low levels of serotonin and norepinephrine. AVE boosts brain levels of serotonin and norepinephrine.
STEP THREE: Meditation Entrainment With Mini-EEG Biofeedback
A targeted meditation session with biofeedback to let you know the state of your mind and how you are actually doing as you sit and attempt meditative practice.
Many have the desire to “meditate” as we understand it can help our brain function better, find peace of mind, and improve our overall health. Yet when we try to sit and “do” it the result can often be frustration and/or a lack of insight into whether it was effective or not. In truth, there are many approaches to meditation, some that involve sitting still and others that emphasize the use of the breath, including deep nerve stimulation in the body through posture management. Samahita and its experience in the field of yoga and meditation is ideally placed to support you in a variety of these approaches.
Samahita’s Brain Health Upgrade program specifically incorporates a session with a wearable mini-EEG device that “listens” to your brain while you sit (or lay) during the timed meditation session. This “listening” gives you feedback, letting you know if you are in a mind-wandering state, aimlessly distracted, or can tune in to the inner soft breath and achieve a calmer mind state.
STEP FOUR: Private Mentoring Sessions
One-on-one private guidance with one of Samahita’s senior teachers, discussion on anything that may have arisen through the session, and support to help understand the process and keep at it.
