More individuals unfamiliar with this efficient, drug-free, non-invasive process are becoming interested in trying it.

Polly Nelson, founder of Nashville Neuro-Training, a certified Brainwave Optimization® provider in middle Tennessee shares an impressive study that uses this non-invasive technology for those suffering from symptoms such as trouble sleeping and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Brain State Technologies®, creator of Brainwave Optimization® recently announced the presentation of notable results from a case series of 21 individuals with persisting symptoms following traumatic brain injury who enrolled in an open label research study using Brainwave Optimization®, at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

“Most of our clients come to us from their therapists, doctors, or from word of mouth,” says Nelson. As research efforts continue and more and more reports of sound evidence supporting the effectiveness of Brainwave Optimization® are publicized, more individuals unfamiliar with this efficient, drug-free, non-invasive process are becoming interested in trying it. This study is one of many that have been conducted at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center to investigate the role and value of Brainwave Optimization® for a variety of health objectives.

About the Study
The presentation was made at the International Brain Injury Association‘s Tenth World Congress on Brain Injury in San Francisco on March 21. The study was conducted at the Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., by Charles H. Tegeler, M.D., professor of neurology, and was made possible by a research grant from The Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation, Inc. “This new technology is intended to allow the brain, on its own, to relax, and to shift towards improved balance, which may result in improved symptoms,” says Tegeler.

Participant’s Results
The participants in this case series had histories of traumatic brain injury related to military service, sports, or other accidents. They received an average of 16 HIRREM™ sessions, 90 minutes each, over 13 days. According to the researchers, study participants reported improved sleep and fewer symptoms related to depression and post-traumatic stress.

Brainwave Optimization® (HIRREM™)
High-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM™) or, as it’s commercially known, Brainwave Optimization® (a product created by Brain State Technologies, LLC, Scottsdale, AZ), is a noninvasive process that uses a computerized system designed to reflect the brain’s frequencies back to itself using musical tones.

About TBI
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Traumatic brain injury can have devastating consequences and may include a host of associated symptoms, including chronic headache, dizziness, insomnia, depression, cognitive difficulty, and impaired work functionality and social relationships.

Each year in Tennessee, approximately 8,000 people are admitted to the hospital with a brain injury. According to the Department of Health an estimated 1.7 million people sustain a TBI annually in the U.S. Direct costs associated with the treatment of TBI are estimated at $76.3 billion annually in the United States alone.
