Nicky VanvalkenburghDear Friend, 

I’m so glad you found this website! Not too long ago, I was suffering from the effects of stress... much like you are now. I was caught up in the "hustle and bustle" of life. I felt overwhelmed, tense and anxious.

Yikes, there's an elephant sitting on my chest!

I was always on the go: Rush, rush, rush! To make matters worse, I was working in an extremely stressful job. My boss was a tyrannt! No matter what I did, nothing was ever good enough for him. He was extremely critical and mean-spirited, even when deadlines were met and the work was completed.

One morning, everything fell apart. I woke up seeing two alarm clocks and two sets of curtains. The problem got worse and worse. I misread words, and lost my place while reading. It was hard to focus and concentrate at work. Yikes, what was wrong with me?

It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. My job was so stressful that my eyesight went haywire. Why was this happening to me?

My doctor told me that I was converting my anxiety to physical symptoms. Ok, but I didn't want to take medication. That wouldn't make my problems go away!

Finally, I found an optomotrist who diagnosed my condition as "diplopia." In other words, double vision caused by stress!

I began "visual therapy" with this optomotrist. He practiced eye excercises with me, as well as progressive relaxation and breathing techniques. After a few months, my eyesight was finally back to normal.

My experience made me realize that stress is not imaginary. Stress can cause physical and emotional changes in the mind and body. Stress can take a toll on your health. My experience also taught me is that I can reduce my stress level with simple relaxation excercises. At the time, I learned progressive relaxation... but since then, I have found something that is even more effective: A "light and sound" machine. (Sometimes, it's called home-based neurofeedback, or a "brain training" machine.) 

How about you? Perhaps you can relate to my story about having a stressful job. The anxiety and tension can be unbearable! It's like an elephant is sitting on your chest. We have so many responsibilities, and so little time! We run out of energy, in spite of getting plenty of sleep. Part of the problem is that...

Stress is everywhere!

Stress in your body = You feel the "wear and tear" of getting older (Decreasing eyesight, headaches, muscle pain, etc.)

Stress in your mind = You're under the gun of deadlines, challenges and constant distractions.

Stress in the car = You're bombarded with traffic, noise and adverse weather conditions.

Stress at work = You're under the gun of work that demands your time and attention.

Stress at home = You're challenged by family and friends, plus housework.

It's no wonder we feel tied up in knots!

We can't think straight or perform at our best. Stress is a serious problem when we're emotionally drained, exhausted, or immobilized by anxiety or apathy.

Stress makes us sick! Whenever we're stressed, our bodies produce certain hormones... and the build up of these hormones causes heart attacks, strokes, hypertension, and cancer. In fact, disease is often the body's inability to deal with mental, emotional or physical stress.

You see, there is a mind-body connection!

A stressed mind and body will effect your job performance, health, relationships and finances.
 Stress causes us to function at low capacity brain power. However,by targeting specific brainwaves, modern science can help you to energize your mind and body, so that you can operate in a peak performance mental state.


The ALERT 60-day brain training program

Suppose you could make a simple shift in your everyday life— so that you could read, concentrate, focus, remember and get things done faster than before? Suppose this shift was relatively easy— such as taking a 22 minute “catnap” with headphones and eyeglasses— and that it was safe, deeply relaxing and enjoyable?

The ALERT is a state-of-the-art “light and sound machine" with a specific 60-day brain training protocol.ADHD brain training

The ALERT has three parts:

(1) Eyeglasses
(2) headphones
(3) Control box with pre-loaded sessions

The ALERT stands for:
Living through

The ALERT is a brain training system that you can use in the comfort of your own home.

Actually, you can use the ALERT anywhere. It holds a battery (for portable use) or you can plug it into a wall outlet.

It is recommended that you use the ALERT light and sound machine at least once a day, for 60 consecutive days. The device is convenient and easy-to-use and you’ll love the way it trains and conditions your brain to get rid of stress.

How to use the ALERT

1. Get comfortable in a chair or lie down on your bed. You may want to cover yourself up with a blanket.

2. Gear up! Put on your ALERT headphones and eyeglasses.

3. Power up! Plug your ALERT into the electrical outlet. (Or use a 9-volt alkaline battery inserted into the back of the device).

4. Select the setting that you want on the control box.

5. Close your eyes, relax & enjoy. You will see a pattern of flashing lights, and hear synchronized heartbeat sounds. The rhythm that you’re seeing and hearing stimulates and trains your brain to overcome ADHD.

6. Chill out. Using the ALERT is so calming and relaxing, that most people enter a state of deep relaxation (which is almost like falling asleep).

7. You're done! After 22 minutes, your session is over. You will feel deeply relaxed and energized. Now, you’re ready to take charge of your day.

That's it! If you can discipline yourself to use the ALERT at least once a day (for the next 60 days) then you can expect to receive good results.

It is recommended that you listen to a session for five days and then proceed to the next session. (Each session builds on the one before, so you gradually master it) You will be doing a total of twelve sessions.

Experience a breakthrough in just 60 days!

After 60 days, you will have completed the entire program, and you'll experience a significant reduction in your stress levels. Plus, you'll experience better concentration, focus, recall, organization and greater productivity.
Brain training is a natural, non-evasive way to address the root cause of stress. The program has been clinically proven to be effective to reduce stress, so that you can conquer it naturally, without drugs.

Best of all, you’ll have fun every step of the way. You’ll actually look forward to your brain training time. It is relaxing and enjoyable, and when you start to get results, the victory will be even sweeter. You will feel so proud of yourself. A tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment comes when you put your natural brainpower to work, and make the most of your inner resources.

What you're seeing & hearing:
The Rhythm of Peak Performance

Did you know there is a "Rhythm of Peak Performance?" There is a rhythm when a person is optimally listening, focusing, tuning out distractions, getting organized + being productive. Actually, it's a brainwave rhythm... and it's used in neurofeedback clinics across the country. Now you can practice + master it in the comfort of your own home, without ever stepping foot inside a clinic.

The ALERT is a form of audio-visual brain training. The device enables you to practice the Rhythm of Peak Performance (which is technically known as the "Sensory Motor
 Rhythm") until it becomes an automatic response.brain traiining ADHD

"Practice makes perfect... "

Have you ever heard the saying: "Practice makes perfect, and repititon creates mastery?" It's true, isn't it? When we practice something long enough, we eventually master it.

Think about what happens when we learn to swim, ride a bike, drive a car, or play a musical instrument.

Something magical happens when we practice repeatedly. That's when things start to click. Eventually, we can do things automatically... without consciously thinking about it. Perhaps some sort of "auto-pilot" inside our brain takes over. We've practiced so long, done it so many times, that we've mastered it. And now we can do it automatically, without thinking about it.

The same thing happens when you use the ALERT program. When you hear and see this rhythm emitting from the ALERT, you are actually practicing the rhythm. Yes, you're lying flat on your back with your eyes closed, but your brain is dancing along with the rhythm. Your brain is practicing it over and over again. Eventually, your brian gets "in synch" with the rhythm.

After 60 days of practice, you will have mastered the rhythm. You will have mastered the R
hythm of Peak Performance, and then it is an automatic response. Then, you can use your rhythm anytime, anyplace... even without the machine.... because you know it like the back of your hand.

Who discovered this Rhythm of Peak Performance?

brain training ADHDThe Rhythm of Peak Performance (or Sensory Motor Rhythm) was discovered in the
 late 1960s, by a neuroscientist named Dr. Barry Sterman. He discovered this brainwave frequency which enabled stray cats to concentrate and tune out distractions. When this brainwave frequency is reached, the cat's brain communicated with their body’s motor systems to settle down, tune out distractions, and tap into their body’s natural energy—which is a state of calm.

Dr. Sterman called it the Sensory Motor Rhythm (or SMR).

In his college laboratory, Dr. Sterman used the SMR to train the cats to remain calm, exercise self-control, withhold their response, and show motor stillness. The cats even ignored the distraction of food and water with the SMR.

Taking the research a step further

In the 1970s, Dr. Sterman took his research a step further. He was approached by a woman who worked in his lab. Her name was Margaret Fairbanks.

Mrs. Fairbanks watched Dr. Sterman do amazing things with the stray cats. "I'm willing to be your guinea pig," she said. "Could you test the SMR on me?" asked Mrs Fairbanks. "You see, I have epilepsy, and can't drive a car. The DMV won't give me a driver's license because of my medical condition, and it is a real hassle for my husband to take me to work, and pick me up. I want my independence! I want to get my driver's license"

Dr. Sterman wouldn't make any promises. However, he agreed to experiment on Mrs. Fairbanks using the same SMR treatment that he used with the stray cats. At the end of 60 days, Dr. Sterman asked Mrs. Fairbanks to go back to her doctor to be checked out. The doctors did all kinds of tests on her, including an MRI.

To their surprise, her doctor found that Mrs. Fairbanks was no longer epileptic. The SMR training enabled Mrs. Fairbanks to change her brainwaves and reduce her tendency to have seizures. She was no longer considered epileptic. Finally, Mrs. Fairbanks was able to get her driver’s license. It was a dream come true!

There's alot more to the story, but the Sensory Motor Rhythm launched the field of neurofeedback. Today, it is used in brain training clinics across the country to help people train their brains to conquer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety & panic attacks, depression, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). 

Now you can practice and master this same rhythm in the comfort of your own home, without ever stepping foot inside a clinic. You can train your brain, and transform your life. Our 60-day brain training protocol enables you to practice and master the Sensory Motor Rhythm until it becomes an automatic response. When you master this rhythm, your stress will be replaced with the Rhythm of Peak Performance.

Development of ALERT "light & sound" machine

The ALERT is the result of 20 years of research, including clinical testing in private schools. The device was developed by school psychologist Michael Joyce and David Siever of Mind Alive Inc. Joyce & Siever (2001) conducted two clinical studies using light and sound machines to reduce ADHD in elementary school children.

The studies showed that specifically-designed light and sound machines reduced ADHD behaviors, such as impulsiveness, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity. Also, the light and sound machines improved the children’s reading scores, which reflects an improvement in their ability to concentrate, focus, and retain information.

 studies show that the Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR) enables adults, teeenagers and children to conquer ADHD by boosting neurotransmitters in the brain (dopamine) and normalizing brainwaves that are sluggish or hyperactive. The SMR also stimulates, conditions and excercises the sleepy ADHD brain, and boosts arousal levels.

There are also research studies about using "light and sound machines" for dealing with:

* Improving academic performance
* Anxiety & depression
* Dental challenges, such as Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
* Hypertension
* Insomnia
* Pain & Fibromyalgia
* Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
* Seasonal Affective Disorder
