I'll be home for Christmas :)
Just another reminder to everyone Mind Alive will be closed from Monday December 27th to December 31st. We look forward to serving you in the new year as we'll open again on January 3, 2011! May everyone have a safe and happy holiday.
I'll be making my way southward to Crowsnest, a nice 6 hour drive from Edmonton. Of course because all my thoughts revolve around AVE I wonder if driving with the goggles on would be a good idea. Mental sharpness especially when highway driving is a must, but I'm not sure about the peripheral vision. Still though, for a truck driver before they start driving a brain booster session might be something for them to try.
AVE is a whole new world for me that I've already managed to successfully integrate into my own work. The new year holds a lot of opportunities. I look forward to them.
I will be blogging through out the holiday season, because I want to document my family's response to my new gadget, though I need batteries :( I didn't quite think I used it THAT often, but apparently I do :)

Self experimentation with AVE
I am a huge fan of Tim Ferris the author of 4 hour body and the 4 hour work week. In the 4 hour body Tim tries some really strange things in order to be slimmer and stronger. As a holistic therapist I find the entire concept over the top, as your mind affects your reality body inclusive, but entertaining nonetheless. I ordered my book that hopefully will show up some time next year (yes it's been shipped via UPS), thus I don't know if he experimented with AVE.
Anyway, as I mentioned last post I'm inspired to train with the AVE at the gym. I just don't like keeping score, though if the numbers go down... And because I quite like the spot light, but hate running I might be more inclined to run if I look ridiculous;) Oh AND I thought about the Running Room Programs that make you run at night, BUT I would have my flashing AVE goggles, though I can only imagine what passing drivers would think.
With self experimentation I wouldn't convince any journals to document my story, but it'd make for good blogging and product awareness :)
I asked on the facebook page as well, but does anyone have any weight loss stories? If so I'd love to hear them.

Already thinking about New Years Resolutions!
I know, I know, Christmas isn't here yet and all I've been doing is training for the eat-a-thons with good friends and family. Because Edmonton has been so cold, all I want are carbs. Potatoes being the most acceptable :) YUM! Fear not I will do some snowboarding in Fernie and carry my nephew around (if that counts).
For those following twitter I hinted at some New Year's Resolution stuff coming down the pipe. Better health and wellness including weight loss is a popular goal. After reading some of the studies and testimonials for AVE, it could be an integral part of maintaining a resolution through out the year. The SAD
study published in the Journal of Neurotherapy,
had an interesting conclusion. 'The daily diary results showed decreased over-eating, appetite, and carbohydrate intake while energy levels increased. By using AVE, some participants lost considerable weight. Twelve participants (8 females and 4 males) recorded their average weight loss of 3 pounds (1.36 kg) using the 1 Hz session and an average weight loss of 9.5 pounds (4.3 Kg). These same participants claim their average weight gain during the winter months is 15 pounds. Therefore, one benefit from using AVE is weight loss. One participant claimed, "after using the 20 Hz session for 2 weeks, the taste of sweets in my mouth was repulsive."' I'm going to have to try the 20 Hz trick. I have a terrible sweet tooth.
With the goggles it's possible to run on a treadmill with your AVE. I want to try this ridiculous looking experiment, because my hypothesis is one should be able to run longer with AVE on the brain brightner settings. If I stay focused on running rather than how tired I am I'd be better off :) Then with the meditation setting I should be able to recover faster as everything is completely relaxed and resting.
