It is well known that when you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins will make you feel positive and can numb the effects of pain. Did you know there was a way to stimulate the brain using sound frequencies that can also encourage the release of endorphins?
Here is a 20 minute sound frequency composition that is designed to stimulate the release of endorphins. Please listen to this frequency set with headphones and find a place to relax (a comfy chair, bed or lying on the floor are just fine). Close your eyes if you want to.
So What Are Endorphins?
The name is derived from endogenous (meaning within) and morphine (morphine being a pain killer). Endorphins are one of the neurotransmitters that function in the brain. As already stated endorphins will induce a positive state of well being and can numb pain. They can also help to alleviate cravings.
How Does It Work?
A study of thirty patients had brainwave entrainment sessions at a particular frequency and experienced relaxation states of 80-100% after five minutes as well as improved pain relief. Eight patients had blood tests before and after the sessions and showed improved endorphin levels of 10-50%.
To create this frequency composition we used accurately calibrated sine wave frequency generators to generate different frequencies in each ear. The overall sound is similar to the sound made by a Tibetan bowl (at much lower frequencies). In the background you will hear the sound of the sea.
In summary this is an easy way to check out brainwave entrainment for free. Just listen to the audio frequencies on headphones a few times and see how you feel. It can take a few tries before the entrainment takes proper effect but it is worth persevering with.
