Types of brainwaves an how they influence our health

Whether in a state of rest, activity or sleep, our brain always displays some level of electrical activity. The frequency and location of electrical brain waves is measured with the help of EEG (electroencephalography) electrodes, which are placed in standard areas of the scalp using a custom-made hat.

Types Of Brain Waves:

Our brain waves generally fall into 5 categories:

1. Beta Waves:

Also known as beta rhythm, these brainwaves occur with a frequency range 12 to 30 Hz. They become active when the brain is working on goal oriented tasks, such as planning an event or pondering over an issue. Meditation has the following effect on beta waves:
  • Help create awareness
  • Improve concentration
  • Help logical thinking and extroversion
  • Promote active conversation

2. Alpha Waves:

These are the most common brainwaves that occur at the beginning of meditation as you try to go into a deeper state of mind. These are electromagnetic oscillations with a frequency range of 8Ð12 Hz. They arise as a result of electrical activity of pacemaker cells in humans. They provide you the following health benefits:
  • Calm the autonomic nervous system
  • Lower blood pressure and heart rate
  • Calm the mind by lowering the production of stress hormones, particularly cortisol in the body
  • Promote relaxation, non arousal and hypnosis

3. Theta Waves:

These waves are recorded from inside the brain or electrodes glued to the scalp. They are often considered the ‘third eye’ as they help gain wisdom. These become predominant when we do any task that is automatic like driving, washing clothes, shampooing hair, folding clothes etc. They are also present in deep relaxation states. During meditation, these waves provide the following benefits:
  • Provide you with a positive mental state
  • Promote a deep sense of relaxation and encourage creativity
  • Improve problem solving skills and make memorization easier
  • Promote improved focus and concentration
  • Strengthen mental connection
  • Promote a balanced and calm state of being by lowering stress and anxiety

4. Gamma Waves:

These are associated with intense focus and are weak in the normal brain activity. They provide you the following benefits:
  • Decrease anxiety and fear, and increase positive emotions
  • Decrease depressive feelings and symptoms
  • Facilitate instant healing

5. Delta Waves:

Delta brainwaves in meditation are the slowest among all the brainwaves. These are basically high amplitude brainwaves with a frequency of 0 to 4 hertz. These brainwaves are associated with the deepest stages of sleep. As we all know, proper sleep is extremely important for relaxing your mind and improving the thinking capability. Here are the benefits of Delta waves:
  • Increase the production of two anti-ageing hormones, such as DHEA and melatonin
  • Helps promote deep compassion and empathy for others, increase social intelligence and avoid conflict
  • Rejuvenate your mind and body by regenerating the chemicals that your body uses while you are awake
  • Cause an increase in the release of human growth hormones (HGH)
  • Improves sleep
  • Facilitate quick healing
 The healing technique I practice, called Soul Healing, is a process that helps the pacient relax and quiet his mind to the point that healing is generated and allowed. In that state (somewhere between Alfa and Theta brainwaves patterns) one can have very profound insights from the subconscious and even soul level, that are important answers and solutions for his healing.
   My role is to maintain the Theta state for myself, help the patient go into it while remaining conscious and ask the right questions to help him become aware of the programs and convictions that lead to the dis-functions or dis-ease in his life.
Then, through de-programming an re-programming the mind (which is like a biocomputer) we go back to/re-creare the state of health or harmony.
