I’ve been using gamma brainwave audiovisual entrainment since April. On May 18, I switched it up to gamma 38-42Hz on Mondays and Fridays and SMR/gamma on Tuesdays and Thursdays and maintained the effect. My writing and photography work went down because I began using my cognitive energy to apply for, be approved for, learn, and open a shop for my imagery under the City of Toronto ShopHERE program.
I’m writing more again for this July’s Camp NaNoWriMo, and I’ve been able to maintain my reading since I began the gamma experiment. I’m also starting to automatically remember to visualize newspaper or magazine articles I come across on Twitter. I kind of forget the verbalizing part, but hey, at least I visualize more!
The last two weeks, I no longer need to rest for at least 30 minutes after gamma. (Shows the brain has a learning curve and/or doesn’t return to original baseline anymore.) Because of that, I tried switching the order of SMR/Beta and SMR/gamma. I usually do SMR/Beta audiovisual entrainment first thing in the morning and gamma right after lunch.
But I have a theory that gamma brainwave enhancement would potentiate the brain waves trained after.
So since SMR/gamma is gentler than gamma 38-42Hz, I decided to do it first thing in the morning and SMR/Beta in early afternoon on Tuesdays and Thursdays to see if it makes SMR/Beta’s effect more potent. I don’t want to enhance my thinking brainwaves (Beta) too late in the day in case it keeps me buzzing all night.
So far, my theory seems to be right. Of course, only a well-designed study with controls would definitively prove that. But for myself, I’ll continue this change to see if last week was a blip or true. Let’s see if the good affect and good energy my neurodoc noted, continues on the day I do SMR/gamma after SMR/Beta.
