I’m not a fan of relying on pain pills. Lately though, that is where I have been. When you combine all that my body has been going through, I don’t have much choice. I take the minimum that is needed to get by. I also try to find other things to ease some of the stuff I am going through.
One thing I have found that is absolutely awesome are Binaural Beats. I use them to help with pain, the horrible headaches and even sleep. They have been working great for sleep until I was put on Nuerontin…with the Nuerontin I think it is wiring me up to much for anything natural to work.
Why didn’t I know about these a year ago?
Uses of audio with embedded binaural beats that are mixed with music or various pink or background sound are diverse. They range from relaxation, meditation, stress reduction, pain management, improved sleep quality, decrease in sleep requirements, super learning, enhanced creativity and intuition, remote viewing, telepathy, and out-of-body experience and lucid dreaming. Audio embedded with binaural beats is often combined with various meditation techniques, as well as positive affirmations and visualization.

So far my favorite is the Pain Killer 2.0 application I have on my iPod. When I am trying to relax for sleep I listen to the De-Stress setting. It totally works. It’s a Thunderstorm with Binaural Beats and it is so relaxing! Another Binaural Beats application on my iPod is called AmbiScience Galactic Chill. This is music with Binaural Beats. Again, this stuff might sound hokey, but don’t knock it til you try it!
I’m thinking about getting the CD Delta Sleep System next. There are places online that you can get free Binaural Beats downloads! Check them out below. If you try it out, please let me know what you think of Binaural Beats. Don’t forget to use headphones and make sure you have them on the correct way. The beats are meant to be heard on different sides of the head, so you want to be sure they are on right.
