Most people start their day with a nice cup of coffee or tea “to wake up”. The caffeine in our morning cuppa is a psychoactive substance that stimulates brain activity. Technically, it’s “messing” with the brain—in a good way.
After a day of work, many people start winding down with a beer or a glass of wine. The alcohol increases the production of Alpha brain activity which we find relaxing. In other words, “messing” with the brain can be quite enjoyable.
Medical and/or recreational Marihuana works in a similar manner by helping to reduce excessive high-frequency brain activity. That’s why there are discussions to legalise it for “messing” with the brain of patients with Chronic Pain.
Needless to say, but smoking cigarettes also “messes” with brains; and so do Tim Tams or any other foods with sugar. “Messing” with our brains by swallowing a substance is considered a normal and socially accepted behaviour.
Therefore, many people are not opposed to adding psychotropic medication to the “messing” mix: Calming drugs for Anxiety, SSRI’s for Depression, stimulants for rowdy kids and Antipsychotics for everything difficult—many of these meds even keep “messing” with the brain long after they’ve been discontinued.
Sometimes it is quite helpful to have a professional Neurotherapist “mess” with one’s brain. Like in this case of a 2 year-old boy with a severe developmental delay due to inevitable medication intake.
When you know that green means normal, as well as red and blue mean abnormal, then you don’t need to be a neuroscientist to understand these brain maps, recorded before and after LENS Neurotherapy.
This is the father’s original report:
“Before the treatments, David could not walk, crawl, feed himself, talk or think for himself. During the treatments, David started drawing and talking. Then he started feeding himself, stacking blocks and coloring by himself. Shortly after, he bgan walking by himself. David now has a vocabulary of 250 words, he can take 20 steps by himself. He is now a normal boy.“
The message is: When brains are a little messed up, it’s a good idea to find a Neurotherapist who can help clean up the mess. Otherwise you might regret the messed opportunity of “messing” with your brain—in a good way!
