Dear Dave and Nancy,
Active Healing, Inc. is a
provider of neurological reorganization located in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Active Healing’s primary focus is the use of developmentally appropriate
functional movement to boost the function of subcortical and cortical brain
stages. As the executive director it has been my mission over the last 16 years
to innovate this program so the care we offer continues to be both wholistic
and as efficacious as possible. For the past decade Mind Alive’s DAVID
audio-visual entrainment devices have been one of the technologies I have
relied on to help the patients under our care.
Among the various populations of
people I work with at Active Healing I see a large community of kids who have been
traumatized and subsequently labeled with; fetal alcohol syndrome,
post-traumatic stress disorder, reactive attachment disorder, anxiety and ADHD.
Since many of these children go to extremes to maintain control I have parents
who find it necessary to lock themselves into their own bedroom, alarm all
interior doors in the house and lock up anything that could be used as a weapon.
In these households, everyone is under tremendous stress and this is not an
environment conducive to healing and recovery
The opportunity for these
children to relax and let go of the overwhelming need to control everyone and
every situation in their life is a huge part of their recovery process. When
the brain is living in stress it restricts the ability of the child to heal. All of the body’s resources are going towards
survival. Of course, when this is protracted over years of time the impact on
their mental and physical health is severe. Allowing a child to dissociate for
several minutes every day and then rebalance allows them opportunity for their
brain to rejuvenate.
Adding a DAVID audio-visual
entrainment device to the therapy protocol for the child, the parents and any
siblings can have profound positive impact. From the perspective of a program
of neurological reorganization they become much more available to all the
developmental stimulation we are using to organize their brains. They become
much better at self-regulation, less violent, less impulsive and generally
better able to function whether it is at home or at school.
From the parents we hear
testimonials such as all are living on the fight/flight/freeze end of the
continuum. Kids are better able to
transition and are more flexible in their thinking. In some cases kids with
Seasonal Affected Disorder (SAD) make huge improvements in their depression.
While all the gains from using
have been significant it has also been a pleasure to do business with everyone
at Mind Alive. The entire staff makes themselves very available for any
questions I may have and is generous with their time. Their commitment to
improving the lives of countless people shines through with their customer
Catherine Garceau won the Bronze Olympic Medal, in swimming in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Unfortunately, she developed an eating disorder following the aftermath of her Olympic career.
She recently began using the Delight Pro to help her with her anxiety and eating compulsions. Here's what she had to say:
Using the David Delight Pro was quite the unexpected
calming and transformational experience for me. In my quest to heal from
emotional eating and depression, I rarely found a modality that produced such
obvious results, and in so little time. Just 5 days of using the device on
different settings (calming at night and energizing and focusing in early day),
the positive difference I felt and acted upon was stunning!
Over the years, I've addressed many of the interwoven physical, emotional, and
spiritual causes for my disordered eating. Yet, still I continued to experience
times where overeating and sadness emerged in ways I could not understand or
come to peace with. The David Delight Pro way of balancing my mind help release
this tension and create a foundation of ease from which to go about my day. In
addition to watching my eating experience naturally normalize even more, I
quickly felt more focused and organized, which definitely has increased my
overall sense of ease and confidence.
Having studied the body/mind connection to food, emotions, and life for many
years, it's no surprise to me that a technology focused on balancing brain
waves would have a tremendous impact on anyone using it in conjunction with a
healthy lifestyle of eating well, exercising, and pursuing a life that inspires
I am very excited to keep using the David Delight Pro -- as an easy to use tool
to increase my brain's ability to shift through different brain wave states,
deepen my meditation practice, gain stress reduction, increased resilience, and
fuel my growing dynamic health.
Thank you to Dave and the team at Mind Alive. I am excited to recommend
the David Delight Pro to all women who like me, desire and deserve to be free
from food compulsions and emotional eating. In hindsight of how I could
have benefited during my athletic career, every serious athlete should use this
technology. For all the mentions above and to increase visualization and
precision in performance, quite a mental edge to add to any game!
Wishing great health and well-being for all,
Olympic Bronze Medalist - Sydney 2000
