Self Mastery Technology (SMT)
Stress Effects On The Body-
Obesity, Diabetes, Acid Reflux, Depression / Anxiety, Insomnia, Digestive Issues
The list goes on…
Did you know current or previous stress could be causing your body to store body fat the spite of all your efforts to lose weight? Stress causes a release of cortisol- a powerful fat storage hormone.
Very often the stressor was years ago (think childhood) yet our body still tries to protect us by keeping cortisol levels high.
Past Stress and Weight Gain
To understand this we have to back up a little. Stress a thousand years ago was from lack of food or shelter typically. To protect you from the environment your body secreted a hormone called cortisol which is a powerful fat storage hormone.
Why? More body fat back then meant a better chance at survival. But our body doesn’t understand our new modern stressors (finances, jobs, relationships, etc.) and in the presence of these new stressors our bodies work the same old way- store body fat.
Daily Stress and Weight Gain
Today we are faced with a new kind of stress never before seen in human history; it’s a dangerous form of stress that’s directly linked to our high-tech, overloaded lifestyles.
This stress causes ‘stress eating’, where we seek out comfort foods to ease our stress. Very often the stressor itself isn’t there anymore yet we still seek out these comfort foods. It’s a vicious cycle…
Why Is Stress So Bad For Us?
Our bodies are designed to be in a relaxed, healing state most of the time. Today most people spend the better part of their day in a stress state called the fight-or-flight response.
Your brain deals with fight-or-flight by producing more of a high-intensity brain wave frequency known as beta, and suppressing the more relaxed, creative alpha and theta brain waves. When your brain gets used to this new stress pattern, it becomes difficult for you to relax. You may then begin to experience weight gain, fatigue, poor sleep, gastrointestinal issues like bloating / diarrhea along with issues like high blood pressure and blood sugar.
While we can't take away all of life stress, we can help...
Self-mastery technology is a new technology that essentially calms the brain down reducing cortisol and actually increasing endorphins. It basically reboots brain waves to be calm and relaxed.
Self Mastery Technology, or SMT, combines gentle pulses of light and sound with visualization and soothing music to return you to the correct balance of brain wave activity. A simple, 20-minute session produces the relaxation response, a state known for reversing the ravages of stress, reducing or eliminating worry and anxiety, and providing the same benefits as 3-4 hours of sleep.
Regular use of Self Mastery Technology stimulates healthy brain chemistry, boosts energy and the immune system, helps slow aging, promotes weight loss, purges unwanted habits, instills positive new behaviors, and can dramatically improve your quality of life.
What is BrainTap?
BrainTap is the latest and greatest innovation being used in conjunction with Self Mastery Technology. When used appropriately with the proper SMT, the potential chances for achieving positive results within your treatments increase astronomically. Below are some of the more common benefits we have seen through this exciting new technology.
What Are The Benefits of BrainTap Self Mastery Technology?
- Produces the relaxation response – a state known for producing endorphins (the brain chemicals that act as natural anti-depressants, relieve pain, eliminate foggy thinking, and promote emotional balance).
