The Bio-Acoustical Utilization Device (BAUD) is a device that creates sonic waves that coincide with brain frequencies measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG). By integrating the BAUD as a stimulant with other therapies, such as neurotherapy or music therapy, the individual can better grasp the significance of regulating their brain waves as well as other psychophysiological dimensions, such as relaxation and indices of mood. The Music frequencies can increase or decrease a person's mood levels; drum rhythms also have been documented as having an affect. All of the body can be influenced by external frequencies, such as the frequency waves measured by the electrocardiogram (EKG) or sonogram energy waves for the heart, electromyogram and the (EMG) energetic waves from the surface muscles.
One of the advantages of the BAUD is that it has gradients of frequencies and differential stimulation between two speakers that resonate for great impact, giving the individual greater control for enhanced learning self-regulation. As an enhancement stimulus for biofeedback, the individual can see and appreciate how he or she can regulate these tracings with frequency changes in the BAUD. Thus, the BAUD serves to augment the learning experience of the client in neurotherapy. These changes have an emotional response, as well; thus, reinforcing a sense of immediate control. Biofeedback and Neurotherapy have been documented to be effective interventions for mental health and pain-related issues. Please discuss with your health care professional the role of biofeedback and neurotherapy can play in the treatment and management of ADD, depression, anxiety, pain management, headache and hypertension..
The BAUD is very mobile, and can be carried easily at home, school or work. This mobility makes it easier to integrate new learning to specific situations immediately, which is impossible with traditional neurotherapy and its expensive immobile equipment.
BAUD uses sonic, or acoustical, frequencies for safety. The science of modifying destructive responses to healthy ones via feedback is both ancient and recent medicine; however, the BAUD has created a new and more sophisticated method of administration.
A basic mechanism for altering neurofeedback response under the control of the individual is a third sonic waveform created by the interference of two produced sonic waveforms. That is the natural physics of energy and integration. This approach may be similar to the underlying medical models of acupuncture, which base healing principles on balancing the mind and body. Additionally, introduction to acoustical stimulation can also create body harmony results.
The patient is given guidance to finding the frequencies necessary for desired affects. Spectrograms or other monitoring equipment often direct the frequencies. The patient's moods are also highly reflective of effective frequency selection. The end result is for the individual to learn to develop neuroplastic changes and pathways so as to create a consistent healthy response, such as improved concentration, memory, metabolism, etc.
