Socrates famously said, "Know thyself"; but he might have better phrased it, "Know thy brain waves." For it is the brain, according to Ilchi Lee (http://ilchi.com), president of the University of Brain Education (South Korea), that determines the health of our body and mind, and thus our quality of life. He announces that one of the most effective methods that he has found for normalizing brain waves to activate the body-mind's innate healing potential is vibration training.
Our brains are composed of around 100 billion neurons, each a signaling system communicating information through electrical and chemical changes. When collections of neurons activate together, they create a weak electrical field, which automatically pulses in a rhythmic fashion -- creating brain waves.
For a long time, brain scientists have known that different types of brain waves correspond to different mental states or behaviors. Our brain waves slow down in sleep and meditation; and speed up when concentrating or worrying. Also, they have found a connection between brain waves and health conditions -- from Attention Deficit Disorder to depression.
The electrical power of the brainstem appears to be a marker of vitality. Many studies have found that the speed and strength of the brainstem's electrical reflexes decline with aging. People with slower brainstem reflexes may be at a higher risk for developing Alzheimer's dementia.
As the developer of many brain-focused programs for self-healing, Lee affirms the importance of brain waves for individual well-being and positive social interactions, "Brain waves can be affected by our thoughts, emotions, relationships, environments, etc. I believe that illness stems from abnormal brain waves, and all healing requires brain wave normalization. Normal brain waves are our natural state; the brain has an innate ability to recover our health." His brain wave vibration training helps individuals shift their brain waves to a normal state, thus improving their health.
Lee's focus on brain waves is rooted in Asian health principles and practices. In his words, "For more than 5,000 years, the Asian tradition has regarded Cosmic Energy as the stuff of the universe. Individuals have to open their consciousness to perceive this state, and benefit from its use. In our brain, Cosmic Energy can enhance our electrical brain wave activity. Accessing Cosmic Energy generates normal brain waves, which can improve health. You can experience Cosmic Energy by tapping into its source, Cosmic Mind." Training in brain wave vibration can be found at the Dahn Yoga Centers in the U.S. (http://www.dahnyoga.com)
