Synchronization Treats Overexposure to Technology

Businessman Talking on a Cell PhoneResearchers have identified a neurological condition called Sympathetic Survival Syndrome (SSS). This condition arises from the constant bombardment of screen time through use of computers, cell phones, video games and television. Similar to the “fight-or-flight” response, a biologically hardwired reaction to stress which increases our heart rate and blood pressure as a precautionary measure after a threat, SSS triggers the body to be in a constant defensive mode. This directly and negatively affects physical and emotional balance, sleep habits and food cravings.

Psychologists from Harvard developed a treatment method that channels precise frequencies of light and sound into both hemispheres of the brain to create a delta brain wave pattern, the same pattern achieved in the deepest stages of sleep or meditation. Benefits of the procedure include improved mood, restful sleep, a boost in energy, a reduction in addictive behaviors, and increased stimulation of endorphins and serotonin, the “feel-good” chemicals produced naturally by the body.
