I joined this site to reply to this thread. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to Blue, Boat, Sanse and everyone who has participated in this thread. I
have experienced the same thing! I have searched the internet the past few days and could find little concerning adverse reactions until I found this
I listened to The Monroe Institute's Meditation CD with binaural beats for four weeks, 20 minutes 2 x a day for two weeks and 45 minutes two times a
day for the second two weeks. At first it was great. But over time a thick brain fog came over me and my short term memory was shot. My processing
became so slow that it was terrifying. I finally figured out it was the beats and I stopped listening to it six days ago. I had one day this week
where my old brain came back, but then it receded back into the fog. I am similiar to Blue in that I have mild ADD. Someone suggested that in ADD
parts of our brains go too fast and parts too slow. I suspect this meditation CD really slowed down my brain too much and it became like trying to
think through mud (Too much Theta?).
I just listed to a Beta CD I ordered from Kelly Howell years ago that I'd forgotten about. Within twenty minutes my old brain was back. I'm not
confident that this will permanently fix the problem, because, as I said, my normal brain came back this week only to slip back into the thick fog.
I'm not going to over do it with the Kelly Howell CD because I don't want to create the opposite problem. That it fixed the problem, at least
temporarily, in just 20 minutes reveals to me how extremely sensitive to imput my brain must be. Maybe I will listen every few days, once a week, or
just if I slip back into the fog.
I will keep this thread posted. I think that is important. On other sites people post about the problem but never come back and say what was the
ultimate outcome. IMO we have to help each other because the companies that produce these beats will not admit adverse reactions can happen. And if
they will not admit they can happen they certainly are not helping those who have them overcome that problem. For this reason I think these products
should be regulated by the FDA. I understand that adverse outcomes are rare, but they do happen.
My results weren't only bad. I typically have chronic respiratory tightness due to sensitivity to sulfites. Since most fruits and vegetables contain
sulfites there is really no way around it. One of the first things I noticed after listening to the Monroe Institute CD was that this chest tightness
was gone, GONE and it still is. I even ate broccoli last night, which is high in sulfur, and had no problems. Even so, for me, the problems the beats
triggered in my brain far outweigh that benefit.
Blue, I'm glad you got back to normal. I'm sorry it took so long, though.
