Losing my mom to Alzheimer’s happened in 2007. It was a 5 year road of gradual decline, leading to the end. Now, it’s my aunt’s turn I guess. To the family, the signs have been unmistakable for some time, but accepting it and actually bringing it up to her was just too hard. My aunt, is an independent, never married, 85 year old lady of the south who insists “there is nothing wrong with me, my memory is fine!” But the truth is, there is something very wrong. It was very difficult to reason with her why she needed to go to the doctor. ” I’m not sick, I’m fine, and I’m not going.” Nevertheless, the appointment was made and we convinced her to go.
Hot Tub Safety
Sometimes We Forget About Safety Around Hot Tubs
Hot tubs and spas are a popular retreat for many and why not? There is nothing in the world like the sensations one receives while enjoying a hot tub: Soothing heat, hydrotherapy massage, that “melting away” sensation that allows one’s mind to relax no matter what kind of a day you’ve had.
For many, a hot tub can be a respite from the pain of arthritis or sports injuries. For others a social centerpiece for their home, and for still others, a private escape and maybe all of the above.
It’s sometimes hard to even think about the safety aspects of your hot tub because so many good feelings are enjoyed there. But sometimes it’s the good feelings that might let us forget about certain safety issues. If you own a hot tub now or are considering buying a hot tub, this list of hot tub safety items can help us all be aware and reminded that safety is important around hot tubs.
What the heck is a Binaural Beat you ask?
Binaural Beat technology is the use of different sound frequencies to product different effects to the human consciousness. Basically, the human brain goes through many frequency cycles during each day. Different frequencies produce different effects to the human consciousness. Using this information, it has been discovered that the receiving and operating frequency of the brain can actually be altered with sound waves. The most powerful brain frequencies are under 20 Hz. Since the ear does not respond to frequencies below 20 Hz, Binaural Beat Technology came about which uses the inner wiring of the brain to produce the frequency with perfect accuracy.
How is this done?
By Broadcasting two separate frequencies in each ear. For example, if you wanted to tune your brain to a 7 Hz frequency, you could play 200 Hz in your right ear, and 207 Hz in your left ear. The brain will compensate for the difference between the two and produce a third tone that will be exactly 7 Hz. This will result in your brain frequency being lowered and tuned to the desired 7 Hz operating stage.
All of this is designed to tune your brain to various brain wave states.
