Military veteran overcomes PTSD after wrestling
with PTSD for 15 years
“I’m a military veteran who has wrestled with PTSD for the past 15 years. Every night, I woke up with flashbacks of
the war, hearing bombs exploding, tanks and artillery, and seeing dead bodies. I woke up sweaty and often
screaming. My doctor diagnosed me with night terrors. My wife suggested that he try the ALERT “brain training”
system. We purchased it and began using it every day for 22 minutes (which is the protocol). After one month, I was
still having the night terrors, but less frequently. I continued on the program, until I reached 60 days.
Gradually, the night terrors faded away and never came back. Now it has been one year, and I have not had a night
terror since. With the help of the ALERT, I recovered from PTSD naturally, without drugs. It is a worthwhile system
that is easy to use and effective.”
"My daughter recovered from PTSD using the ALERT
Brain Training System"
“My daughter is autistic with severe PTSD.
After being traumatized over a 5 year period in our local school district, grades 6th thru 10th, my daughter became
a prisoner in my own home. Due to her severe emotional and social anxieties, we were unable to go anywhere. We were
all prisoners. The ALERT brain training system was our last hope as drugs and therapy was useless. Within 7 days I
began to see a relaxing in her demeanor. She wanted to go shopping and was able to sit in the front seat of the
car. By 20 days, we were able to take her to the hospital for removal of her wisdom teeth. At 30 days our neighbors
and friends could see a visible difference in her facial features and vocalizations. After using the ALERT there is
a darkness that has lifted from our daughter. We have a long way to go but we are now on a path heading in a
positive direction. I too have been using the ALERT and it has helped relieve the stress that has filled my life
for the past 7 years. The Alert will be a welcomed part of our lives for as long as necessary.”

As a father of two children and a wife with mild ADHD, I feel comfortable using
this product as a means of overcoming faulty family dynamics and occasional school hurdles. In four days time,
we've already been successful using the the ALERT sessions to:
(1) Get everyone to fall asleep and stay asleep at a decent time (5 stars)
(2) Calm myself down before the morning routine gets started (5 stars)
(3) Have my 10-year-old son read for 30 minuteswithout interruption (5 stars)
(4) Reduce my daughter's anxieties prior to school tests and basketball/tennis
games (jury still out, but I'm optimistic!)"

I feel the
machine is making a difference!
"I have been using the light and sound machine for a week now, and am experiencing being able to see my situation
from a different perspective. I realize now that I must have ADD or the ADHD or something similar and have had it
for most of my life. I had no idea. It has felt like if I was a computer that I didn't have enough ram, which in
itself has caused alot of problems, upsets and frustration. I have read books, taken so many transformational
courses, and although they made a difference in my life, nothing has made a difference to my condition. I have felt
so isolated from people and life. I feel the machine is making a difference, and now I can see what has been off.
It has been like I have been in a dark room full of quick sand. the more I move and try to get out the more stuck I
get or upset someone or myself. As I said for the first time I feel someone has turned on the light and I can see
the situation I have now been in most of my life and do something about it. Thank you so much, Nicky, for the radio
interview you did with Patrick Timpone that opened my eyes.

"Nicky is a teen-hood friend of mine and I recently hooked up with her again. I got
her book and the ALERT machine. Now my whole family is using the machine. My 12-year-old son loves it too. Our
doctor noticed that my son is more focused and was just amazed at the difference. I told her it was
because of the ALERT light and sound machine. The doctor was very interested and I told her to look
up this website. I didn't want to tell her about it previously because I wanted to make sure it wasn't a
placebo effect. Now, otherswho knew nothing about my son using the machine have also noticed the
change that I'm seeing. Thanks so much for your book and the time you took to write it and invest in

Dramatic reduction in my ADHD!
"I'm a 33-year-old man with ADHD, and have been trying your device.
Since I found your "light and sound machine" I've noticed a pronounced improvement in my ADHD:
* I'm out of the house, and on my way to work in 15 minutes, instead of 45
* I'm able to remain task-oriented far better
* I can perform simple tasks such as getting dressed, or doing the dishes, far faster
than ever before
* My frustration levels have dropped significantly
* I'm not a salesman, or an agent for this company, I'm just a customer who has had a

"My son's attitude at home has improved greatly. He is now able to discuss situations
rather than fight about them. His marks and behavior in school have improved greatly."
Patty Tucker, Edmonton,
"My child's vocabulary has increased from approximately 15 words to 35 words over a
two-week period. For the first time ever, we are able to communicate clearly with him. We have observed many
wonderful new things he is now able to do. These are all great accomplishments for my son, Mitchell."

My whole family uses the ALERT
"My son and I have been using ALERT for 15 days (once per day). We both have ADHD and
we are both on medication for several years. Against all expectations, my son has been off medication for five days
and it is going really well! Once a month we tried to have him off medication for one day but our trials threw us
into despair: without medication, our son's behavior was very stressful. Medication works well for school and
concentration but I worried about the lack of appetite which is a side effect of the medication. Our son is not
putting on normal amount of weight nor growing well. Without the medication, our son was very agitated and put
himself and others in danger. In the evening, once the medication stopped working, he had many rows with all of us
and I spent my time really stressed out at the thought of "what is he going to do next?" So, after only 15 days,
there are significant positive changes for us with the ALERT. I also stopped medication for a week. I find the
ALERT sessions extremely relaxing and I find myself very refreshed afterwards. Our son and I are really enjoying
our daily sessions with the ALERT and we don't need to be reminded because it is rather pleasurable to slide into
this state of deep relaxation. Our son is much more centered. Eventually, the whole family tried it. My husband is
working long hours in a very stressful environment. He says it is a fantastic way to relax at work during the lunch
break and be back at full-speed afterwards. Our other two children do not have ADHD but enjoy the ALERT
for relaxation. The ALERT seem to work for everyone here, ADHD or not!"

Dramatic changes: calmer, more
relaxed & better grades!
"My son Dallas has gone through a dramatic change. He is now much calmer and
relaxed. He is progressing very well in school and has gone up the equivalent of three grade point levels. He has
settled down a lot. I truly believe this works!"

Goodbye to underachivement,
disorganization, drugs & alcohol!
"I want to share a success story with you. It involves my first study subject using
your "light and sound machine." His name is TC, age 19. He had completed his freshman year at college and had
significant problems academically. He had been on Wellbutrin and Concerta throughout his freshman year, to no
avail. He underachieved badly and had tremendous difficulty getting organized and staying focused. He is an alcohol
and drug-free person, so there were no substance abuse issues. Over the summer, I began using the "light and sound
machine" with him. He discontinued his medication with the knowledge and cooperation of his psychiatrist and
improved in mood, attitude and behaviour over the next eight weeks to the point where his parents purchased a
system for him to take back to school and use. Needless to say, he did exceedingly well during his sophomore year,
has stayed off the medication, and is now in Italy as a visiting student from his college in New York. When TC
returned for a visit at Thanksgiving and came in to say hello, he was bright-eyed, focused, engaging, smiling; it
was just a joy to behold the newly found confidence he exuded. So, thank you for your efforts in doing the work
that you do."

A brilliant solution to
help combat ADHD!
"We came across your "light and sound machine" by accident, but what a Godsend
this device has proven to be! Your device proved to be a brilliant solution to help combat ADHD. We have also used
the device continuously to relieve stress and bring a calming mood to the staff at Helping Hands UK Org. We fully
recommend and applaud the device and would encourage any organizations such as ours to utilize such a device. We
cannot recommend this device enough."

"I just wanted to give you an update on my daughter. She is borderline ADHD. Her
teacher started using an ADHD checklist. Before the ALERT, she had a 6 or 7 out of 10 possible
checkmarks. After the ALERT, she had a perfect score everyday, with no checkmarks. At home, my
husband and I are finding her much more cooperative, less argumentative and she is doing her homework without
bouncing up and down 100 times. I asked the teacher for work to be completed at home today and she has been working
on it for the past two hours without complaint! Unbelievable! One of the biggest changes is her attitude towards
us. She realizes right away that she stepped over the line and apologizes almost immediately. Her temper outbursts
are almost non-existent. My husband also tried a session when he had a headache and his headache went

"Light and Sound" changed my child's
future... when it looked impossible two years ago!
"My son Daryn had a Special Ed teacher who told us he would require learning
assistance from grade two to nine due to his inability to read proficiently and his inability to
Daryn has exhibited signs of extremely active behavior from a very early age.
During kindergarten he received testing and we were informed he showed all of the symptoms of ADHD. Daryn found the
educational system very challenging from the first day of ECS, his learning to read almost tore our family apart.
By the end of grade one neither my husband nor I would attempt to read with him because he couldn’t concentrate
long enough to visually recognize the word STAR. He is fascinated with stars, space etc, this simple word
frustrated him totally as did words like THE and AND. It also made him really recognize internally for the first
time that he was different and that hurt him a lot. What it also did was make him very competitive in any areas of
his life where he was having any success to compensate for the pain and lack of success in the scholastic arena.
This of course lead to a whole other set of problems aside from the academic challenges he was already
In October 1994, we were fortunate enough to learn about your "light and sound
machine" though a local television show followed by an evening seminar. By this point we had nothing to lose as
neither my husband nor I believe that the masking of symptoms through the use of medication is a lifetime solution.
We had tried a number of things including diet modification with only marginal results if any. We purchased the
audio-visual entrainment (AVE) unit and gave our son a future.
In early November 1995, I was asked to attend a private meeting at Daryn's school.
The number of individuals that they indicated were attending was more than at any previous meeting From experience
I had learned really bad news seems to take teamwork to deliver, the worse the news the bigger the team. Therefore
I was extremely apprehensive, even though Daryn seemed to be doing better than ever, really enjoying school and
having real success in all areas as evidenced by the marks he was achieving in his note books and on his homework
At that meeting I received the second best bit of news in my son’s life to date.
The first was at birth when I was told by his pediatrician that a birth defect affecting the shape of his skull
would in no way impair or affect his intellectual capabilities nor with time would have any cosmetic affects. The
news was that the school felt that if Daryn kept up his academic performance for the rest of the school year, he
should be removed from the special program as he would have progressed beyond the program and could function
satisfactorily in regular class with only a modified Language Arts program. He was the first person in our county
ever to leave the program because he had academically moved beyond it. The reason all those attending the meeting
were there, was to share in this first of its kind success. So I guess the moral of that story is that it takes the
biggest teams to share great news.
Well, we are now a year later and Daryn has had his first report card as a student
in standard class. His lowest mark was in math, 62%. His teacher says this no way accurately reflects reality, this
is him mark in spite of submitting less than half of his grade 5 math homework assignments. His highest mark was in
Science at 79%. He is now reading at the top end of Grade four level. At the rate he is progressing, I wouldn’t be
surprised if he is required to follow the standard grade 6 Language Arts Program.
The comments section was our biggest joy, 'Works well with others. Works well in
group situations. Is co-operative. Is really fun to have in the class.'
Like many other families, we suffered all of the pain, agony and frustration that
a learning impairment entails. Your "light and sound machine" is giving our son the future we would never have
dreamed possible just over two years ago.
If I had only one wish, it would be that all children who may be symptomatic of
ADD or ADHD or any learning impairment that has a comprehension component, at least have the same opportunity to
experience success as our son has, because every child should have the right to future. "

No more Ritalin! "Light and sound" is
a better solution for this kindergardner!
"Life was a nightmare! We really did think life was a nightmare. Ever since our son
was in kindergarten. That's when it all began. David, our son, was a very happy baby and a happy little boy. We
were so excited when he started kindergarten because he was so bright.
We took him to pre-kindergarten screening. Everything from speech and hearing to
motor skills. The nurses and therapists seemed to be very impressed with David. His skills were good. But then they
tested him for things that took a lot of attention. And of course I, as his mother, thought he had done
exceptionally well. But the 'professionals' very quickly recommended that my husband and I hold David back from
school for one year.
That's when the nightmare began. The first parent-teacher conference we had went
rather well. But David's attention span was not what it should have been for a six year old. We went on through
kindergarten with the end result being, that the school felt like David should be held back. We refused to sign the
paperwork. Then came first grade. The problems became even worse. After a while I finally admitted that possible
David did in fact have a problem. And again the school insisted that David be held back. We agreed.
David was then tested by the school psychologist. Having known the man for a
number of years, I trusted his opinion. He very tactfully told us that he thought David might have ADD (Attention
The doctor began with Ritalin. It is the so-called miracle drug for children
with ADD. I began a diary of David's daily activities and moods. Things did not seem to be getting any better. I
was still getting daily phone calls from his first grade teacher. So the dosage was increased. Again, no change.
Again, the dosage was increased. That's when we started seeing a little change. But again the dosage was increased.
At this point David was taking the maximum dosage for a child his size. He began having side effects from the
medication. At this point the doctor changed him to Cylert. On a very low dosage we began seeing what we thought to
David's school work was being completed. He didn't have as much homework. And he
was almost back to the normal David we thought we had lost.
Then the D.A.R.E. Program started at school. This really affected David. He was
tired of taking drugs, and he didn't want anyone to know he took anything. They might call him a
This is when we went to our doctor, Dr. Aaron Kaufman, and he was so excited about
this treatment he had gotten in California. It was your "light and sound machine" and Aaron began doing his very
best to get our David and this machine together. He also took David off Ritalin.
After the first treatment there was just a minor change. He could ride all the way
home without jabbering. This was approximately a 10-mile ride. We were elated. And, of course, we continued the
treatments. We never told his teachers that we were doing anything about David's lack of attention or
hyperactivity. We just let it ride. But after each session, we noticed a little more change. The homework was
getting done, there was less of it, and David seemed much happier. Even though we were having a few crisis at home.
David was handling them very well. But in February, 1992, things began to happen. It was like David had bloomed.
The homework was down to a minimum, and my husband and I were truly ready for the upcoming parent-teacher
The teacher started off with 'Has something changed at home? David is doing
wonderfully! His homework is complete, his grades are up, and his attention in class is unbelievable!' Of course I
wanted to go hug Ruth and Aaron immediately! The very first GOOD conference we had ever had with any of David's
teachers. His grades all came up but one. And that was reading. But he did maintain the C that he was carrying. We
have continued to see remarkable things happen to David. As a result of the good grades he made it on the Merit
Roll. This is not so much for grades as it is for progress.
As a result of using the "light and sound" machine, our David is much easier to
live with as a person. There are no more repeated instructions, no more senseless fights with his little sister
(who is six years younger). Life is just so much easier now. I couldn't even begin to put into words the relief,
the happiness and the thankfulness that the machine has brought to our David and our family.
In closing, I think any parent with a child who is having problems of any kind,
learning, behavioral, psychological, any problem should be addressed by the machine.
Thanks for ending our nightmare and making life just a little bit

I haven't stopped taking medication, but
I decreased it by 1/3 with the ALERT!
"As I use your light and sound machine, there are more and more things that I
like about it. My winter blues just faded away in the short time since I have been using your device. I used
to wake up in such a fog and now it is just a joy. I've been singing and humming all day long while I work. After
22 minutes, I feel so calm and serene.
Besides lifelong ADHD, I have neuropathy in my feet as I also have been living
with HIV/AIDS for 23 years, so keeping my stress levels in check is very important. I have used many alternative
methods to keep my life in balance and still am quite vibrant and alive but this winter has been pretty hard on me
and the depression/anxiety was mounting strong. I noticed such a difference just 3 days after using your light and
sound machine. I have decreased my ADHD medication by one third with your product and my doctor's

Dramatic improvements from child who was suspended, expelled and transferred from school
"My son, Karl, has always had difficulty concentrating in school.
He has been suspended, expelled and transferred from several schools since grade 1. Karl began using the light and
sound machine in October of 1997. Since using it, we have seen many encouraging changes in Karl. He has become
more cooperative at home and at school.
We would recommend that any child suffering from ADHD difficulties take advantage
of the benefits of using this device. Rather than using drugs, we strongly suggest that parents at least make an
attempt to use this device first."

Improved concentration... and no more
fighting at school!
"My son has ADD/ADHD and as a result has problems concentrating in school. He has
also been getting into fights in the schoolyard. I first heard about the light and sound machine on the news. He
has been using the unit since the end of November and the change in him has been very dramatic. He no longer gets
into fights at school, and has a better concentration in the classroom. He is a lot calmer and is able to focus
better. His teacher has also noticed a change. He does his work in class, and has very little homework now. She
commented to me, 'It's as if he no longer has ADD/ADHD.' He is a lot happier now and does not get as frustrated as
he was before using the device.
I would recommend the device to anyone who has children with Attention Deficit
Disorder with or without hyperactivity. The results are astonishing! Thanks for all your help with my
