MET Joint Pain Relief from Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory disease that occurs when the immune system mistakenly starts attacking healthy joints, resulting in symptoms that may include pain, swelling, stiffness, sometimes numbness, sometimes loss of physical function. There is a plethora of pills for dealing with RA, all having possible major side effects.

 

Micro-Electro-Therapy (MET) has several applications, but one in particular I have found to be beneficial for me personally is the ability to use MET for reducing joint pain instead of reaching for the ibuprofen. I already take enough medication for my RA, and MET is a nice alternative to taking any more.

My session of choice is the Sub-Delta program (Feeling Better category, session #3) on my Delight Pro. I place two adhesive pads each on opposite sides of the joint that is particularly bothersome, each snapping together with the electrode cable that connects to my mind machine. I then press ‘Start’ and sit back for 24 minutes.

MET reduces pain by generating micro currents much lower than a TENS unit, and this Sub-Delta session (0.5-1Hz) gives me several more hours of relief from joint pain and stiffness than over-the-counter pain relievers. MET works with the DAVID Delight Pro, Alert Pro and Oasis Pro systems by Mindalive Inc, using the CES port for the micro current stimulation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are seeking alternative methods for dealing with pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) consider using MET.

2 Examples of InnerQuest Lightframes

Back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s IQ International, also known as InnerQuest, manufactured some excellent light and sound mind machines. Of course the available technology was primitive compared with today, plus at the time red LEDs for light frames was the first and only choice for the light stimulation. Of course all that changed, but here are two pictures of IQ International light frames that were common…

Notice the two LED positioning of the light frame on top and the ‘light intensity wheel’ for adjusting the brightness for the light frames on the bottom. The top light frame was used with the IQ 9110 and the light frame with the light intensity wheel was used with the IQ Jr light and sound brainwave frequency mind machine.

Microcurrent Electro Therapy (MET)

Microcurrent Electro Therapy (MET)

Microcurrent Electro Therapy (MET) can be used with the DAVID Delight Pro and Alert Pro light and sound with CES mind machines and the Oasis Pro CES system manufactured by Mindalive, Inc. for Mindmachines.com

MET has many applications, including relief from joint pain, tendonitis and muscle fatigue. The MET Kit is inexpensive, easy to use and can be used separately or as an adjunct to clinical treatment at home by those in need of physical pain relief. Dr. Daniel L. Kirsch, Ph.D., wrote an excellent tutorial on Microcurrent Electrical Therapy that should be considered a must read by anyone interested in incorporating MET into their pain-relief regiment.

 The MET Kit comes with electrode cable with snaps, thirty adhesive patches (that connect to the electrode cable) and retails for less than $50.  Extra adhesive patches are available separately for under $25.                  

Although electro-type medicine has been around for over a thousand years, developments in electronics and new research has seen this technology grow at a terrific rate. Microcurrent Electro Therapy (MET) is very different from the more traditional TENS because MET produces its benefits in part on a cellular level. MET has longer lasting effects than TENS. MET is also referred to as Micro-TENS.

The idea behind MET is based, in part, on Arndt’s Law. Arndt’s Law states that weak stimuli excite physiological activity, whereas medium-strength stimuli will encourage it and strong stimuli will suppress it.

Micro-TENS and MET are meant to be used directly along a muscle to break down knots and fatigue in muscle. It is a slow frequency (like CES), but the pulses are short. The standard protocol has been to use a fixed frequency of 0.5 Hz. However, Heffernan (1997) found that randomized stimulation from 0.5-3 Hz produced superior results. The Oasis Pro uses dual-randomized low-frequency stimulation, as does the Delight Pro and Alert Pro systems. When MET is delivered at around 500 micro-amps in the 0.5 to 3 Hz range it appears to be most effective for treating physical pain.

 

 

 

Customer Service is appreciated

I just wanted to write a review about the excellent customer service and experience I have received from Michael at mindmachines.com for the David Delight Pro.

First, the David Delight Pro has been an amazing device. My neurofeedback therapist said that neurofeedback wouldn’t work on me because I was taking a benzodiazepine and indeed, I didn’t notice a difference from the neurofeedback. We quit after 3 sessions.

Conversely, I have noticed several differences since I got my David Delight Pro with Tru Vu glasses. I have felt feelings I hadn’t felt for years. I can actually sooth my body. My long-term severe depression is gone. My negative self-talk has radically decreased. I appreciate and enjoy silence more. I see more beauty outside of me. I am more present in the moment. Etc. etc.

Michael has given me lots of helpful information, answered several of my calls and taken many of my questions, and further has been very kind and honest. I find him both generous and a pleasure to work with. It’s nice to speak to a businessman and honestly believe he wants what is best for you and I’m on the skeptical side in that department. Further, Michael is not the manufacturer of the David Delight Pro so you can feel comfortable with his speaking openly about other devices as well as The David Delight Pro.

I am very grateful for our conversations and have learned so much.

Thank you, Mike! Thank you Mindmachines! And thank you Mindalive! Their customer service has been excellent as well.

I was not asked nor offered anything to write this review.

Audio-Visual Entrainment and Diffuse Axonal Injuries

Audio-Visual Entrainment and Diffuse Axonal Injuries

By Dave Siever, C.E.T.

Dave Siever is the President of Mind Alive, Inc. and creator / manufacturer of the Delight and Alert series of audio-visual entrainment mind machine models.

Introduction

Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) is a technique using flashes of lights into the eyes and pulses of tones into the ears at specific frequencies. The frequency of the lights and tones used are in the brainwave frequency range from .5 to 40 Hz. AVE is one of the most intriguing stimulation technologies as AVE devices have been shown to influence, in varying degrees, brain activity by a myriad of influences, not simply frequency driving. As a result of these other effects, we could ponder if we should simply rename the technique as audio-visual stimulation (AVS). Our senses are constantly bombarded by AVS. Consider watching TV or sitting on a street corner watching the traffic. These activities consist of abundant quantities of AVS, yet they don’t have much of an impact on the brain. For instance, when AVE is randomized at ± 1 Hz (for example, 10 Hz would randomize from 9 to 11 Hz), entrainment is reported to provide a significant clinical impact, at ± 2 Hz, the clinical effect is poor and at ± 3 Hz, the clinical effect is all but lost. So it appears that the myriad of effects from AVS only occur when the stimulation is kept fairly rhythmic and therefore entraining, hence AVE. For this reasoning, we will use the term AVE throughout this article. Because AVE affects such a diverse range of neurological processes, it has applications spanning from simple meditation and boosting cognition to the treatment of complex issues such as depression, pain and diffuse axonal injuries (the most common type of brain injury). But first, let’s understand the physiology of AVE.

TOO RIGHT-BRAINED FOR MATH?

TOO RIGHT-BRAINED FOR MATH?

Plenty of high school students I’ve met have been totally frustrated with math. Algebra, geometry, trigonometry, even basic math, they all need to take one or all of them to graduate and they have a hard time grasping the concepts. I can relate. Being right-brained, math seemed way too left-brained for me. I was lucky to have patient teachers, many students do not. So what do they do?

Tutors help immensely for some, but many go it alone. For them I recommend synchronizing their brain, as in whole brain synchronization. The method is easy to achieve with the right tool and costs less than hiring a tutor for the semester or year as the case may be. And that tool can last a lifetime. It’s called the DAVID Smart light and sound mind machine by Mind Alive, Inc.

mind-machines39

The Smart has two sessions for clearing the mind, improving concentration and memory and re-focusing. They are also great for lowering the anxiety associated with taking tests. There are also two sessions for settling down negative thoughts that we often have when doing things we don’t particularly care doing, don’t understand or just plain don’t get… the Smart boosts confidence in doing those things that we find hard to grasp. It’s a whole brain synchronized entrainment thing that happens when doing a mind machine session, which no conscious effort.

SMART DAVID-smart-mind-machine

The DAVID Smart has ten excellent sessions associated with academics ranging from energized motivation all the way down to sleep, and every brainwave frequency state in-between. So if you find yourself having to take math (or any course for that matter) and it is difficult to grasp, try the Smart approach. It works!
