Help with Cognition

  • It gave me a sense of direction in my life I never had before.

    Five days before this client came to us at NeurVana, he was arrested and charged with destruction of private property and assault. He was released under his father’s care and two days after that he exploded again, this time resulting in new charges (assault, threats, and resisting arrest). He spent his 18th birthday in jail. Working with his father and the courts, he was given a conditional release to attend NeurVana’s residential program. Prior to these incidents, the client used substances daily (primarily marijuana) and had great anger, rage, uncontrollable behavior, poor memory, lack of focus and concentration, and learning challenges.

    Here is his testimonial:

    While in the NeurVana program I took part in many Brainwave Optimization sessions as well as group therapy talks and a number of one on one life coaching events. I believe in this program and the amazing people who run it one hundred percent. It has helped me in ways I could not imagine possible.

    I will start with how I no longer feel like I cannot control or manage my anger. I would no longer consider myself an angry person. I have been taught many valuable lessons and strategies to help me deal with stress and anger in appropriate manners when these feelings do arise. I feel that I am more conscious of my thoughts and other people’s feelings. I no longer act on my impulses and it is as if there is a pause between my thinking and my action that will follow. I can accurately weigh and make decisions based on my surroundings and I do not let myself get carried away in the moment. I can stop and think before I act and determine if what I am doing or saying or about to do or say is a good idea. In short for the first time in my life it is as though I am truly in control of what I do and where I go and it is an amazing feeling. I have self control and discipline and I respect myself and all those around me.

    I am eager to apply myself in all aspects of life and become an active part of the community. Also I am extremely proud to say that thanks to the program I have rid myself of all unhealthy habits such as smoking. I am happy to say that I am currently and looking forward to living a substance and toxin free lifestyle, as I look and feel healthier than ever before. I feel that no other program could have better prepared me for the life changes I have made, and going to continue to make. I am a healthy young man who loves himself and his community and I only wish to move forward with my life in a positive, productive direction from this point on.

    Some other areas of improvement thanks to the NeurVana program are as listed:

    • I no longer struggle to manage my anger and my emotions. I am a positive influence on everyone around me.
    • I rediscovered my artistic talents and love for drawing.
    • My right eye no longer wanders.
    • I found a deep love of cooking and creating magnificent food in the kitchen with Scott, the chef at NeurVana.
    • My speech has improved.
    • My computing and math skills have improved drastically.
    • Hand eye coordination has noticeably improved in sports and all forms of activity.
    • Physical fitness and strength have improved.
    • Both long term and short term memory improved amazingly.
    • Attention and capacity to learn is noticeably greater.
    • My vision has also improved.

    All these improvements and more are directly in result to the Brainwave Optimization technology. It is such an amazing and revolutionary science that I felt I had to share some of these interesting improvements that I have noticed and continue to notice every day. From my personal experience I believe everyone could benefit from this treatment.

    The greatest thing NeurVana did for me was it gave me a sense of direction in my life I never had before. This program made me realize my full potential and that it is not too late for me. I feel like I see the world in a different way now- the way it should be seen. I am entirely focused on my own life, and there is no room for things that do not serve me anymore. It is as if I am awake and I can really be productive with my time and that’s all I want to do, is succeed.

    The way I feel being home now it is almost unbelievable to me that I could have gone so far astray from these morals and ideals which I always had in me. I have deep and sincere remorse for my actions but they are behind me in the past, and now I can only go forward from here. That is what I have been doing and I will continue to do so.

    NeurVana was, literally speaking, a life changing experience for me. Thanks to Dave and Susan Kenney, the wonderful staff at NeurVana, and the Brainwave Optimization technology I am on the path to success.

    Throughout the entire course of my recovery I felt amazingly productive and learned many organizational skills that I have been applying to my life now here at home. The fact that I have written this letter is another reminder to me of the amount of progress I have made in such a short time. Every day at NeurVana Ifelt like I was a part of something truly effective. I have the highest expectations of myself. I look forward to the rest of my life, living the way I deserve, with a positive outlook and a balanced brain.

    Thank you.

  • My personal experience with Brainwave Optimization has changed the course of my life


    I have been diagnosed with Thalestemia and MS and during the course of the past 4 years my condition has worsened. I was asked to come to Los Angeles and give Brainwave Optimization an opportunity to see if it could help me and my condition.  Truly after 20 sessions and the amazement of learning about my own brain capacity, I believe it is a great accomplishment to where I am today.  

    The significance of what has changed in my life and the quality of life that I have been given is a gift.  My memory has improved my stamina and the will to make changes in my life.  My headaches that I have had since I was 3 years old are almost gone.  My personal experience with Brainwave Optimization has changed the course of my life, and I hope this will open the doors to changes in the rest of the world.

  • I was beginning to access the left side of my brain

    D.J., 38
    Massage Therapist

    (D has a genetic condition that effects both short term and long term memory. This testimonial was written for her by her brother)

    Before Brainwave Optimization, I was plagued with an inability to stay focused.  I also had no ability to recall specific information or words.  This disability affected all of the activities in my life, especially my performance in school and my relationships.

     At first I was skeptical because I felt that my condition was permanent.  I had learned to live my entire life with it and I just couldn’t see reversing or fixing something so deeply entrenched in my head with a few sessions.

    The first couple of sessions were challenging for me.  I was left mentally exhausted with a headache.  However, as the sessions went on, each morning when I woke up I began to feel more alert and I felt as if I was in more control of my mind.  People around me told me I was more coherent.  I experienced something I had never felt before; I was beginning to access the left side of my brain.

    The positive impact that Brain State Technologies has had on my life is as follows:

    • I am definitely a lot more alert with a sense of mental clarity
    • My mind is able to find the right words to express my thoughts and I answer questions more freely as well as finish sentences without much effort.
    • My thought process is more uniform, as opposed to random
    • I am able to problem solve using previously learned information
    • The neck and shoulder pain that I have had from and accident 12 years ago has diminished by about 90%”

  • He can get back to enjoying life again

    J.R., 60

    My mother has been struggling with dementia and Dissociative Identity Disorder for about 7 years.  There is a strong family history of mental illness:  3 sisters and 1 brother are also diagnosed with mental illnesses.  The illness and dementia were creating constant conflicts between my parents, who came very close to divorce a number of times.  My father was at the end of his rope when my mother came in for Brainwave Optimization.
    Since Brainwave Optimization, my father  says there hasn’t really been any arguing, the dementia/Dissociative Identity Disorder dynamic hasn’t really come up as an issue, and things have been good!  He is thankful for Brainwave Optimization and relieved that he can get back to enjoying life again.  Some time after her sessions, my mom said she was feeling happier and others had noticed that too.

  • She was able to read again

    I.T., 83

    Several years ago I.T. had an aneurism which affected her ability to speak, read and write.  Still able to think, but unable to complete even simple sentences, I.T. found this new disability extremely frustrating.  Once also an avid reader, she now couldn’t read any more either.  As a result, she felt trapped inside her mind.  Both her mood and family relationships suffered considerably.

    Through the course of one Brainwave Optimization intensive, I.T. has so far managed to have two full conversations, the first two conversations that she has managed to have in almost 3 years!  After Brainwave Optimization, she was able to read again and her mood also improved significantly.  I.T. hopes to be able to follow up with more sessions soon.

  • Help release fear


    After my 5th Brainwave Optimization session I took my dog for a walk in the park when I returned I realized that I had forgotten to look over my shoulder “just in case” throughout the whole walk. That has never happened before.

  • Brainwave Optimization was in the beginning a wonderful peaceful opportunity


    For me, Brainwave Optimization was in the beginning a wonderful peaceful opportunity to remember what it is like to be still and close my eyes.  It was meditative, contemplative and relaxing.  I began to examine the inappropriate ways I have learned to respond and as I observed those old behaviors I began to clear them and learn new more appropriate ways to respond.  One hard and observable result is that after giving up sugar in February, I lost almost 20 lbs. I am appreciating a greater focus and subsequent enormous learning curve in my work and just in the nick of time. My job has changed radically and old limitations and fears are up for review and clearing.  I’m grateful for the tools to meet each new (sometimes overwhelming) challenge with a greater distance on the situation. I’m learning that inappropriate anger and a feeling of helplessness can be exchanged for focus, calm and self confident questioning of other people’s inappropriate behavior.

  • I feel I have a new lease on life


    As I approached my 60th birthday last month I was filled with dread... my son bought me ten Brainwave Optimization sessions. With some skepticism I participated. I now look and feel 10 years younger... In fact I am 10 years younger. I feel I have a new lease on life.

  • This allowed me to approach things more rationally


    Without my mom knowing what the sessions were supposed to specifically help me with, she explained that it was as if a pause was created between my impulse to do something and my action. This allowed me to approach things more rationally and not just automatically act on my impulses. My mom didn’t even know to look for this, she just noticed it. Thank you so much.
