Binaural beat music therapy has been used with learning disabilities, and ease behavioral problems, for many years. The use of music to ease conditions like ADHD is not reported on in the mainstream media, because pharmaceutical companies would like consumers to believe that Adderall, Ritalin and other common prescription drugs are the only way to control the behaviors, and calm the racing thoughts, associated with ADHD. But you don’t need to give your children, or yourself, costly prescription drugs, or be exposed to potentially dangerous side effects. Sound therapy techniques, such as binaural beats and isochronic tones, can be a gentle, effective and enjoyable alternative to prescription drugs.
The theory behind binaural beat sound therapy is that the two hemispheres of the brain can be balanced, by delivering slightly different sounds into each side, using a pair of headphones. Often, the right side of the brain is overactive in ADHD, while the left side is underactive. These brainwave patterns are evident in MRI imaging, making it easy to compare an ADHD brain to a ‘normal’ brain. Many ADHD sufferers are surprised to learn the symptoms of ADHD can be positively reversed, by simply listening to special music through headphones.
It is nearly impossible for those with ADHD to concentrate on anything long enough, and with sufficient intensity, to get even simple tasks done. To make matters worse, more complex tasks, and long term goals, which require several levels of planning, are bound to evade someone with ADHD, leaving them at a distinct disadvantage. Music designed specifically to refocus the activity of the brain, to create calm and focus, can greatly aid a sufferer of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, actually training the brainwave patterns to look more like that of a person who is not learning or behaviorally challenged. The neural pathways can be strengthened, and the right and left hemispheres of the brain can become more balanced. As a person becomes whole brained in their thought process, their life can improve in many ways, with positive feelings and sense of self worth, being a notable change.
