Brain InjurySecretary of State Hillary Clinton kept up a rigorous schedule of work-related duties, which included visiting 112 countries during her four-year tenure. Traveling just short of a million miles, she covered enough distance to span the globe more than 38 times. With all of the time changes involved, her schedule was clearly exhausting. No doubt weakened by her workload, she caught the flu and fell down, striking her head. The result was a concussion and a blood clot.

Since the concussion, Mrs. Clinton has been wearing thicker glasses to aid her continuing problem with vision. Clearly her brain has been affected by the concussion. She joins some 1.7 million people who suffer traumatic brain injuries every year in the United States.

Nearly a half million emergency department visits by children up to age 14 are caused by traumatic brain injuries. Experienced by young children, teens, and people over 65 the most, traumatic brain injury is a factor in fully one-third of all injury-related deaths. Medical expenses and the cost of lost productivity from traumatic brain injury runs into the tens of billions dollars each year.

A portion of the recent $1 million Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation grant to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center to study the benefits of Brainwave Optimisation, is being directed to research dealing with how Brainwave Optimisation can benefit those with traumatic brain injury.

In addition to this vital ongoing clinical study of the efficacy of Brainwave Optimisation, we already know from clients who have suffered traumatic brain injury that this amazing technology is an unparalleled asset in the recovery process. Whether their traumatic brain injury comes from a stroke,a blow to the head, or a fast “shake” of the head as may happen in a car accident or when near an explosion, many clients report dramatic improvements as a result of their participation in Brainwave Optimisation. The technology may even help longstanding cases.

Brain Injury Successes

One 77-year old woman who suffered a stroke 11 years before trying Brainwave Optimisation noticed a big change in her speaking voice, which she describes as having “improved drastically” despite all the time that had gone by.

Reaching even further back, a single mother told of how she suffered a seizure disorder stemming from a brain injury when she was only 13. After experiencing Brainwave Optimisation, she reports how at 42 she is becoming a professional artist. “I now have plenty of focus to pursue my art, set up my business, and make this career change,” she says.

People get their lives back when their brain is balanced and harmonized, For instance, a 33-year old salesman who suffered multiple blows to the head and what he describes as “severe brain damage” tells of how “all the people around me are so happy to see me again, returning to the person I always had been.” This man felt as though he was recovering his life after months of being absent.

The process of restoring balance and harmony to the brain is sometimes straightforward and quick, at other times more gradual. For instance, a client who suffered brain injury when he was ejected from the vehicle in a car crash experienced many ups and downs as his brain came into greater balance and harmony. At times he felt as though they would take a step forward only to take two backwards. Despite these ups and downs, he trusted the process—a trust that ultimately paid off for them in a much higher quality of life.

In his book Limitless You: The Infinite Possibilities of a Balanced Brain, Lee Gerdes relates the case of a woman whose recovery from brain injury took much longer, yet who came back from the jaws of death. Charlotte was a scientist who, a week after giving birth to triplets, experienced a brain hemorrhage that was so severe, the doctors who performed surgery on her said she would be in a permanent vegetative state and advocated serious consideration of ceasing life support. Charlotte happened to have a brother who was a Brain State Technologies brain training licensee. Though there were no biological markers for the kind of neural activity that would allow Charlotte ever to recover from her coma, he was able to persuade the hospital to allow him to bring his brain training equipment into the hospital.

James was able to show that his sister did indeed have brain activity, whereupon he began using Brainwave Optimisation with her. Six weeks later Charlotte opened her eyes. Over the course of a year, she was able to walk again and return home to her family.

There are many remarkable accounts of how balancing of a brain has facilitated astounding recoveries from traumatic brain injury. If you know someone who has experienced such an injury, whatever their age, I invite you to encourage them to give Brainwave Optimisation the opportunity to work its wonders—wonders being experienced around the world, now in 20 countries with over 200 providers, as well as receiving increasing verification from clinical trials.
