Are Binaural Beats
Good For You?

Binaural beats are not a new discover scientific world but they are get more popular among other people too especially in self improvement world. Thank to numerous programs and Cds out there.

A lot of claims have been made about them, such as improving people life's. Because I was skeptical about that, as usual I follow my special procedure “ give it at try”, if you know what I mean.

That was beginning of my personal development journey. I would like suggest you to try it for your self at list once for few days.

You can start with the most popular Cds, mp3 audios that you can find on line.


Here some of benefits may you experience fro yourself:

    1) Increases production brain chemicals related to all body functions.

    2) Helps you to take different approach to your old problems

    3) Improves in your mental and emotional health,

    4) Creates more self awareness.

    5) Improve memory, focus, creativity, learning ability, and intuition.

    6) Creates new neural pathways between the right and left hemispheres of brain, also called brain synchronicity.

    7) Significantly lower your stress levels and calms down your mind chatter

From my own experience this so called "brainwave entrainment" technology can really help improve your life. Now after mention the benefits of this tool, I finally I going to tell my own knowledge about them.

Keep mind as I said many times before I am not expert but I like to share my own experience and knowledge about any topic of this site. So if you would add more on this or you have your own experience, please feel free to share with us.

Scientific Facts About Binaural Beats

So Binaural tones occurs in the brain as response, originate in the of each brain hemispheres, under the stimulus of two different auditory impulses or sounds, heard from opposite ears.

The impulses are below 1000 Hz and the difference between the two of them has to be between 1 and 30 Hz. Let's say we a put tone of 450 Hz in to the right ear and a put tone of 440 Hz simultaneously to the left ear, an amplitude modulated standing wave of 10 Hz.

So every time the brain receive two different sound between each ears, it will produce a presided third wave to balance the two different frequency beats. You cannot hear this tones because it's below our natural range of hearing. All you can hear sometime it's some kind of “AUM ”.

After years of research they found out that those beats can create over time in the brain the same frequencies of the binaural beats. So that means you can have the same frequencies more often without use any beats or sound. When this happen this can change the brain wave patterns temporarily and some case can be permanent.

That's why binaural beats are so effective at inducing meditative state and trance state. They very good for people who wants meditate but not the time to master the techniques. In this way meditation becomes more effective and effortless.

History Of Binaural Tones

Binaural tones were discovered for the first time the 1839 from a scientist called Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. After many year well over 130 years to be precise in 1973 Gerald Oster wrote the academic article called “Auditory Beats in the brain” after that many other scientific studies were done. This article was full of new information and insides that come out from Gerald Oster his studies.

Soon after this article binaural beats got a lot interest from many other scientist especially from Robert Monroe which began investigating its use in personal development and consciousness. He did a lot of experiments, using an EEG machine which is an machine for measuring electrical brainwaves activities.

After those experiments he reported that binaural beats can influence brain frequencies. Over the years numerous research were done and all confirmed the binaural tones change brain frequencies activities.

And also are related whole brain functioning winch is basically the creation of new brain wave patterns between left hemisphere and right. So that means that all befits that I mentioned above are possible with right use of this technology.

Why are possible because the brain it's like the central station of the body every body functioning is starts with an impulse from there. And when this technology is used stimulates the production of vary types of chemicals in the brain, as: serotonin endorphins, vasopressin, acetylcholine.

Brainwaves Frequencies

Here the list of frequency range names and their association:

>40 Hz Gamma waves: Higher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, breakthroughs and consciousness

13–40 Hz Beta waves: Concentration, arousal, alertness, cognition Higher levels associated with anxiety, unease, feelings of separation, fight or flight

7–13 Hz Alpha waves: Relaxation, superlearning, relaxed focus, light trance, increased serotonin production. Pre-sleep, pre-waking drowsiness, meditation, beginning of access to unconscious mind

4–7 Hz Theta waves: Dreaming sleep (REM sleep) Increased production of catecholamines (vital for learning and memory), increased creativity Integrative, emotional experiences, potential change in behavior, trance, deep meditation, access to unconscious mind

<4 Hz Delta waves: Dreamless sleep Human growth hormone released Deep, trance-like, non-physical state, loss of body awareness Access to unconscious and "collective unconscious" mind.

Binaural Tones Conclusion

Finally I can tell you that it's easier to use this Binaural Tones technology, that actually give an comprehensive explanation but hope you find this information helpful.
