Default Binaural beats

I've recently been listening binaural beats for relaxation. On looking it up on Wikipedia it says that people with PD can't hear them. I can! Has anyone else tried? More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_beats

I have experimented with binaurals quite a bit and am not overly impressed with the wikipedia piece. The output sounds like a continuous tone and it doesn't seem to matter if you have PD or not. There is a lot of territory to cover. Glad to see that you are looking in to it.

Default Holosync

I have used binaural beats for years in brain machines and the products from the inventors The Monroe Institute (www.monroeinstitute.org). They put one into a deeply relaxing "body asleep, mind awake" state.

The latest variation is Holosync from Centerpointe. (www.centerpointe.com)
Among their claims: Increased DHEA and melatonin and decreased cortisol indicating stress reduction. Oddly enough, it made me agitated but my brain reacts oddly to things.

Thumbs up

I originally started using Holosync about 3 years ago and I experienced a calming deep relaxation state. This is difficult for me because I have been diagnosed withh ADD. I decided to try the Holosync CD's again but I had much better head phones this time. It was Amazing and scary. I had memories, I mean the colors, smells and names, flowing back into my concious mind. Situations that had profound affects on me were, how do I say it, revealed to me. So if you got agitated just go along for the ride, don't fight it and you"ll probably find something out about yourself.

Default Could be why I am addicted to playing my horns

Being an old instamentalist, I was a principal player. This means I actively seek out the differences. I didn't know their was a name for it but I have trained my ear to listen for the sound or beating to know if an instrument is in tune or not. The beat means the instrument is out of tune. Thanks for educating me. Hope my brain retains the information.

Just listened to the wikipedia link and distinctly heard the beats (and pretty sure I have PD!)
