MindAlive Brainwave Entrainment AVE
Welcome to the world of Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) by MindAlive. Their patented DAVID AVE devices allow various areas of the brain to work together in harmony. By using the DAVID device you may experience your mind in a new and beneficial way. The DAVID devices integrate the necessary principles of audio and visual stimulation to safely and effectively guide you into desired states of relaxation, consciousness, attention and boosted brain performance – ideal for those who want to expand their personal development, boost their mood and sharpen their mind.
AVE is a non-invasive form of stimulation: no electrical current is passed through the user. All resulting effects are produced in the brain solely by the audio-visual stimuli. Cranio-electro stimulation (CES) is available on select DAVID devices. CES technology does pass a small current of electricity through the user but must be actively initiated by pushing the CES buttons located on our CES-capable DAVID devices. CES can be used in combination with AVE, or on its own.
Effects of Audio-Visual Brainwave Entrainment
Many users of the DAVID have reported experiencing:
- Deep relaxation while feeling more energized
- Visual images, colours and patterns
- The sense of feeling “grounded” and calm
- Increased mental clarity for resolving problems
- Enhanced interpersonal relationships
- Mental sharpness
This deep state of AVE-induced regeneration has proven to be useful for many of the mental, emotional and physical challenges that nearly all of us face at one time or another in our lives. When the body/mind effects from experiencing AVE are fully appreciated, the experience becomes as regular and beneficial as many other life essentials such as quality sleep, good nutrition, pure water and exercise.
Activity in the brain is often measured by observing and recording “brainwaves” which are rhythmic or repetitive neural activity. Brainwaves can be observed through an Electroencephalography (EEG) which is a test that measures electrical brainwave activity along the scalp. Brainwaves are categorized by the frequency with each category having different positive and negative effects, depending on your current and desired level of arousal or alertness.
Brainwaves indicate both the level and type of arousal in a part of the brain. When a person is awake and engaging in a task, delta, theta and alpha activities should be low, revealing beta as the dominant wave. As a person relaxes, alpha quickly increases. As a person becomes deeply relaxed and especially with eyes closed, theta will become the dominant brainwave and as a person falls asleep, delta becomes the dominant brainwave with occasional short bursts of sensori-motor rhythm (SMR) in the sensori-motor strip to prevent sleep-walking.
Brainwaves are situation-specific. Therefore, any brainwave can be either a benefit or detriment to the activity a person is trying to engage in. Stress, a hectic lifestyle, and less than optimal diet suppresses relaxing brainwaves. And likewise, when we are tired during the day, the brainwaves which are essential for mental performance are suppressed. It’s easy to see that if a person’s brain is making the wrong frequency for a given situation, the result will be detrimental to his/her ability to succeed at the task at hand. The brain needs to flex with the various activities that one is engaging in.
