Bellabee’s technology is used to provide a better performance frequency for the brain by using electromagnetic pulses (PEMF).
The human brain already functions on frequencies but sometimes these frequencies do not operate optimally, which causes stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, etc. Bellabee uses PEMF technology and through the use of frequencies the brain adapts to the rhythm provided, which provides the benefits people require.
Bellabee works as a digital metronome suggesting a body a speed performance, it means giving the external signal, the body needs to adapt, start following its beat.
Like everything in this world. All external influences, whether this is a sound, touch are converted into electricity, shaped with the help of electromagnetic pulses. El-mag impulses in our body create codes (different frequencies), readable by our entire body. And no, we do not create radiation or change cell structures.
WHY IT WORKS
The brain reacts to every color, voice, sound, loved one, dissatisfaction. Each of these external stimuli leads to a sense of rippling in the brain. In the past, people used an extremely low frequency to achieve altered states of consciousness. Meditation along with the rhythmic sound of drums, gong therapy, steady flashing lights all transport you into a state of thoughtfulness and transcendence.
Even the sound of rolling wheels when riding a train can put us to sleep. Different rhythms of music, a ticking clock, all have their effects on us. The brain always adapts to the external frequency. We are now able to call on a little help from Bellabee.
WHY USE BELLABEE?
Today the pace of life has grown increasingly rapid and stressful. For many, it is difficult to imagine taking the time to relax, to light a fire in your hearth and just sit and watch it, to meditate, to ride a train, and fall asleep to the smooth sound of turning wheels. Playing drums or meditating in the middle of the office seems equally unimaginable. BELLABEE offers an alternative—one that will not make you look weird.
For generating electro-magnetic pulses in our Bellabee headband, Bellabee uses energy from smartphones or tablets the same way as for headphones when we listen to music. Bellabee can be compared to an earphone, it is like putting an earphone at the back of the head and “listen” to various pulses.
Just influencing cell membrane potentials. An example would be where concentration is poor, in most cases people will have too little alpha frequency.
Bellabee provides the right amount of the required alpha frequency in order to focus, concentrate and perform better. The same knowledge in principles is possible to use at every brain anomaly, it is the cause for different mind states like insomnia, anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, lack of concentration, and many others. Limitless possibilities. Most brain abnormalities can be linked to incorrect frequencies (brainwave patterns) be it anxiety, depression, insomnia, autism, ADHD, etc. In some cases, brain waves are too high and in other cases too low.
Bellabee through PEMF creates just the right amount of frequency in order to support the brain’s internal metronome clock to synchronize better and perform at optimal levels. In order to support different brain abnormalities, the brain requires an intervention be it electrical or chemical. Bellabee is all-natural as it works on the same principle as the brain’s natural frequencies, it just supports the brain to function better in a more rhythmic and synchronized manner. If you can control brain waves, you can control your levels of
alertness. But to understand how that works, you have to understand and accept two important things. First, our brains are electric.
Second, certain brain wave frequencies are linked with various states of body and mind alertness and various states of mental and physical conditions.
Additional ideas or sources to search: brainwaves, brain entrainment, if you are really interested and want rock-solid proof, buy a Bellabee and visit a licensed NFB specialist to conduct an NFB therapy and EEG measurement within a session. The impact of Bellabee on brainwave patterns is seen in less than 3 minutes.
One-time purchase can change so many things in your life and your life of yours. And a number of possible therapies and solutions are developed new every day.
What is an easy way to explain the difference between traditional NFB and Bellabee in terms of how they modulate brain function?
Modulating Brain Function: The Difference between Traditional EEG Neurofeedback and Bellabee
Bellabee simply directs your brain oscillations in the desired direction without training, effort, or supervision. You just put the Bellabee headband on, connect it to your mobile device and select the desired mode then Bellabee will start working in the background, leaving you free to continue your daily activities. That’s right! Bellabee can be used at home or on the go (that is why it is called “Your Daily Assistant”) and does not require specialist supervision or appointments. Most people start switching to the desired frequency within 3-5 minutes.
Over time, with continued use, your brain will begin to resonate with the frequency generated by Bellabee so you won’t need to use the device as often. Think of it like riding an autonomous self-driving bicycle that trains you to ride the correct way right from the start. Soon you will be able to ride on your own due to the frequency following response, neuroplasticity and neuromodulation principles of neuroscience. And when you feel the need, you can restart using Bellabee.
On the other hand, NFB specialists try to teach you how to push your brain in the desired direction using audio-visual games and other tools. A specialist needs to be present to provide the training. EEG electrodes are connected to your brain in order to monitor the brainwave frequency and try to move it to the right frequency with the help of audio-video programs that reward you for producing the desired frequency and penalize you for producing the incorrect brainwave frequency (operant conditioning).
Ultimately Bellabee is more affordable, convenient, and easier to use.
Bellabee Vs Traditional EEG NFBBellabeeTraditional EEG NFBUses electromagnetic waves to modulate brainTrain person to modulate brain through audio-visual and tactile feedback.
Passive method, individual is not involved in intensive training.Active and concentrated effort required for certain protocols (activation training) while relaxation training is passive (though the client must be still with their eyes closed).
Can be performed anywhere, anytime.While it does require expensive hardware and software, people can train at home with a remote or home training system. A clinical setup is preferred.
Non-intrusive, can perform other tasks while using.Tasks like academic bridge and other activities can be performed together, and with wireless devices, movement tasks can be performed. However, these are not as “free” as with Bellabee.
It is portable, a headband connected to a mobile device.Not portable, needs an elaborate setup.
Easy customization.Time consuming Customization is true for previous generations of equipment. Modern systems allow for “point and click” changing of protocols.
Can be used at home without professional supervision.Needs professional input for every session. Lately, however, several systems are automated and allow laypersons to train themselves using pre-made protocols.
Can be used as a stand-alone therapeutic tool and can also be combined with other modalities, like NFB, pharmaceutical treatment, psychological treatment.Many systems include biofeedback (GSR, HRV, respiration, temperature, etc.) with neurofeedback, such as the BrainMaster and Nexus (BioTrace) systems. Others use HRV with every session via programs like emWave. Most practitioners use at least one other biofeedback method when training neurofeedback.
Totally wearable, a headband connected to your mobile. You can jog, read, or do other chores.Wearable but usually used in a clinical setting. There are a number of wireless devices that communicate with the computer via Bluetooth (Cognionics and Wearable Sensing for example), but they are VERY expensive, costing between $16,000 and $24,000 each.
Validated by NASA.NASA, the US Navy and the Air Force have all endorsed neurofeedback. In fact, some developers of neurofeedback systems worked for NASA before going work on his own after having used neurofeedback while at NASA. The studies were with pilots and the work that they validated was the concentration – relaxation cycle.
Can be used on your own, without supervision.Needs supervision and interaction with a professional trained in NFB.
Compact, can be carried anywhere.Cannot carry it around easily. The newer systems are portable, and some are even app based.
Bellabee app can be downloaded from Google play store or Apple store to your mobile device.Not an option.
Silent, no audio, video, light, or vibration signals.Accompanied audio, visual, and tactile signals.
NASA used it for well-being of astronauts in space.There have been dozens of EEG studies in space by both NASA and Russia.
Change in brainwave to the desired frequency can be seen even during the first session, in some cases.Usually takes some number of sessions to see this change. sLORETA and swLORETA neurofeedback elicit changes within minutes and these are visible in the EEG during the session, often in the first few minutes.
No electrode attachment with messy gels, and wires going to and from the equipment.Electrode attachment needs with gel/ paste and wires connect it to a machine. There are dry systems that do not use past or gel.
Works at different parts of brain like cerebrum and cerebellum.Usually aims at a specific portion of brain. Some NFB devices and software can train the cerebrum, cerebellum, red nucleus, vermis, habenula, amygdala, hippocampus, and thalamus.
Works at multiple levels:
a. Brain, cerebrum and cerebellum.
b. Neural pathways going to and from the brain.
c. Body, particularly the heart, through the neural pathways.
d. At cellular level.
Neurofeedback works through synaptogenesis, neurogenesis, increased regional cerebral blood flow, and improvements in connectivity metrics in the cerebrum, cerebellum, red nucleus, vermis, habenula, amygdala, hippocampus, and thalamus. Thus, NFB works on populations of pyramidal neurons (population dynamics) and the surrounding support cells (glia) and can influence the microglia as well.
Bellabee is like autopilot used in planes, and now available in other vehicles too. You just put Bellabee on, connect to the mobile device, click on the desired mode and it starts working.
In the 1950s – 1980s this is how amplitude training was done: you connect EEG electrodes to the scalp, see the existing brainwave frequency and tries to move it to the right frequency with the help of an audio-video program that awards for the right frequency and penalizes when not moving towards the desired brainwave frequency. However, since the 1990s and even more so in this century, NFB has moved away from amplitude training in favor of Brodmann Area training in multiple metrics (amplitude, relative power, power asymmetry, power ratios, coherence, phase, phase shift, phase lock, phase lock duration). Since the early 2000s, the focus has been on normalizing the EEG via Z score training, and in the past 10 years, normalization of the Z scores within a given brain region or networks has become common. There is no penalizing the brain in operant conditioning – only rewards for movement toward the thresholds.
Electromagnetic therapy has been in use for many centuries in one form or another.It is a new concept originating in the last century.
Magnetic waves are a natural phenomenon, like in:
a. Earth magnetic field, used by birds for navigation during migration.
b. Schumann Resonance (If we are out of sync with Earth’s Frequency (Schumann Resonance) we begin to exhibit signs of discomfort that can range from anxiety, insomnia, illness, suppressed immune etc.)
No such equivalent. nevertheless, there is nothing more natural than the EEG and the operant conditioning training method in which
NFB predicates how the brain learns best.
It is very simple to set up and use:
a. Download Bellabee apps from google play or apple store.
b. Connect headband to mobile device earphone jack.
c. Put on Bellabee band around your head as instructed.
d. Run the desire app program from the mobile device.
Elaborate arrangement and professional setting required.
Bellabee uses PEMF, that is also used to treat non-union of fractures, other musculoskeletal problems/ associated pain syndromes, and even cancer.No such musculoskeletal or cancer treatment possibilities.
Acts through cerebellum, (which is now scientifically proven to act as a moderator of brain cognitive and higher executive functions, in addition to motor functions). Cerebellum has abundant connections to cerebrum, other parts of brain and through them to the body, particularly the heart. That is why that Bellabee, placed against cerebellum can have far-reaching effects, beyond its area of placement on the brain.Neurofeedback works through synaptogenesis, neurogenesis, increased regional cerebral blood flow, and improvements in connectivity metrics in the cerebrum, cerebellum, red nucleus, vermis, habenula, amygdala, hippocampus, and thalamus. NFB works on populations of pyramidal neurons (population dynamics) and the surrounding support cells (glia) and can influence the microglia as well.
The mechanism of action is based upon Frequency Following Response (FFR). Through this the brainwave frequency starts resonating with the frequency produced by Bellabee.It is based on operant conditioning principle.
(Both have been in use to modulate the frequencies of the brainwaves.)
It is a futuristic neuro-wearable device. Neuroscience equipment is advancing in the direction of AI (artificial intelligence) and BMI (brain machine interface). Bellabee is exactly on this path.Usually it is not wearable, though there are wearable systems. The greatest advances in neuroimaging in the past five years have been in qEEG and neurofeedback. qEEG (which is also used for Bellabee) is superior in the time domain and is getting very accurate in the spatial domain (5 mm3)
Bellabee future is optimistic. It is moving in the right direction, is based on latest technology and is under process of constant improvement and addition of features to treat more and more brain disorders.Latest technical advancement are being incorporated at the desired pace.
Bellabee simply directs your brain oscillations in the desired direction. No questions asked, no training, no effort to come to the desired level, even you do not have to come to practice, rather can do it at your home, or anywhere else.Training and effort required from the person undergoing NFB therapy.
Autonomous in nature. It is akin to, teaching a student how to drive a bike, only that with Bellabee it is like riding an ’autonomous self-driving bike’, which trains the person to start riding the bike right from the start with its help.The individual learns to push his brain in desired direction, using audio-visual and tactile feedback. The purpose of NFB is to teach the brain options, thereby improving flexibility and increased self-regulation. These are the enabling objectives for personal autonomy.
No active supervision, teaching required.It requires some sort of guidance/ training to work.How does Bellabee accomplish similar results as NFB without targeting a specific frequency for a specific brain site or side?
Though the brain has different areas and parts, they are all connected through networks and work in synchronization to achieve a goal or execute a task. For example, when you look at an object the Occipital lobe gets involved. When you compare it to another object the Temporal lobe gets involved since this is where memory is stored. If you reach for the object the Sensory-Motor cortex gets involved since it controls your motor functions. If you touch the object the sensory perception activates to fine-tune your movement and associated senses to help you reach the goal at hand. Meanwhile, the Cerebellum regulates the entire process.
Since the cerebellum fine tunes every action of the brain (higher mental functions, cognitive, emotions, sensory, motor) to accomplish a task in the most efficient manner, a device placed against the cerebellum, while emitting electromagnetic pulses within the natural frequency range of brainwaves, will help the cerebellum modulate the brain towards the correct frequency. As the cerebellum is connected to all other parts of the brain through nerve tracts, it can send and receive signals to and from (those parts) and influence the required part/s of the brain. It can even influence the body using the same neural pathways.
Bellabee uses a neuroscience phenomenon called “Brain Entrainment (BWE)” in this regard. Also known as “Brainwave Synchronization” and “Neural Entrainment”, it refers to the capacity of the brain to naturally synchronize its brainwave frequencies with the rhythm of periodic external stimuli. Brainwave Entrainment causes brainwave frequencies to synchronize with a periodic stimulus such as the frequency produced by Bellabee corresponding to the intended brain-state. The brainwave entrainment effectively “pushes the entire brain into a certain state”. Brainwave entrainment works for almost everyone. It is a great way to guide your mind into states that you might usually have difficulty achieving.
By focusing the pulse at back of head where cerebellum is located, Bellabee conveys the modulated frequencies to reach other parts of the brain. This generated pulse acts maximally where the said frequency correction is required, just like when we take medicine, it absorbs through the blood and reaches every part of the body but works at the place where it is needed.
How does Bellabee achieve long-lasting results with PEMF technology?
The brain, like any other organ, requires a state of ideal equilibrium to function at an optimal level. This equilibrium is what our internal regulatory mechanisms work to maintain. When any system in the brain or body is out of equilibrium to the point where internal regulatory mechanisms fail, symptoms appear and you need to give external input to correct it.
As you apply an external input, (electromagnetic, chemical or otherwise), the mind and body naturally moves toward the equilibrium state. Over time this (minimal amount of) outside help is all that is required for the internal balancing mechanisms to take up the job and start functioning on their own without external help.
Bellabee uses “Frequency Following Response (FFR)” to help the brain move towards the specific state and, after time, start working on its own, decreasing dependency on the device. This is possible because of the characteristic properties of FFR and Neuromodulation (NM), as well as the regenerative and new connectivity features of the brain‘s neuroplasticity (NP) capability. This can happen at a swift pace and can be verified by recording the EEG.
Once the brain is in equilibrium state, it tends to remain in this state as it is natural. As symptoms decrease or disappear entirely, it becomes a reward for the brain since the symptoms become an undesirable feature to avoid.
One study at Harvard Medical School found that a PEMF device could improve the mood by over %10 after just one 20-minute treatment in patients with bipolar disorder and in patients with major depressive disorder (Rohan, et al).
The secret of BELABEE’s success is simple: it uses complex innovative technology in a simple, user-friendly and completely non-invasive way to efficiently help you relax. By harnessing the power of the pulsed electromagnetic stimulation (PEMF), the Bellabee coaxes the mind and the body into working together to achieve the desired goal: peaceful state of the mind that leads to an enjoyable, productive life.
There are six settings designed to influence concentration, sleep, meditation, and stress levels. The headband’s pulses bring our brain and body back into line with the task at hand. For example, if we’re stressed and trying to sleep, the Bellabee will sync the brain up with our intention.
The pleasant effect of its frequencies is slightly similar to music, too. When you’re stressed, Bellabee will simply give off relaxed, extra-low frequency pulses to calm your body and mind.
How do you relax after a hard day? Try to read a book, watch a movie but find it difficult to turn off your noisy thoughts?
Relaxing after a hard day can be difficult – yet it’s vital for your health.
Bellabee Anti-stress mode induces theta and alpha brain waves that calm you down and help you release stress from your shoulders helping you to achieve emotional, physical and mental well-being and wake up fresh and full of energy.
Bellabee can help you to achieve maximum relief from daily stress. It’s actually better than going to an expensive spa or taking a warm bath. Why? Because you’re basically massaging your mind! The starting frequency is 10 Hz for 5 minutes, followed by 8 Hz for 5 minutes and then 6 Hz for 50 minutes.
Bellabee provides you with the ability to concentrate for longer periods and retain information much more quickly and longer than usual. A perfect aid to increase your overall productivity!
Unlike other stress-relieving techniques and methods, bellabee is a once-in-a-lifetime investment. Once you buy it, you have it with you forever!
Numbness and tingling , ,Neck tension, Nervous stomach , Pulsing in the ear, Panic, fear, and uneasiness, Not being able to stay calm and Fear of impending doom, Shortness of breath, Weakness in legs , Feeling like you are going crazy , Inability to rest? This are all symptoms of anxiety.
The frequency of Anti anxiety mode is 7,83 Hz for 60 minute. We would suggest one session before sleeping and one after you go to sleep. You can also combine it with the Anti- stress mode before the Improve sleep mode and after it the Improve sleep mode.
Take your Bellabee to work and you’ll notice a big difference. It will help you to concentrate, solve problems and make fast, stress-free decisions. It’s barely visible so the only thing people will actually notice is your improved quality of work.
Bellabee can assist your memory with its Concentrate modes. For example, the Concentrate mode induces beta brain waves, in which the ability for problem solving, data processing and multitasking is increased. The starting frequency of Improve sleep mode is 16 Hz for 5 minute, followed by 24 Hz for 5 minute, followed by 30 Hz for 50 minute. Bellabee offers overall assistance to our brain’s cognitive functions.
Enjoy meditating? Imagine getting into a deep state of meditation anywhere anytime.
With Bellabee, you can maximize your mental performance and test its limits in the most chaotic environment – on a bus, an airplane or the grocery store!
Our state of mind depends on human emotions, such as anger, happiness, fear, love and sadness. Our brains and bodies run at different frequency speeds, depending on what we are doing. Bellabee draws upon the medical knowledge of the frequencies at which our brain works in different states of mind, and encourages them to function at those exact frequencies.
This can be accomplished even though the brain frequency may not be aligned with what we’re trying to achieve. Bellabee ’s Meditation mode induces a predominance of theta brainwaves, which enables you to control your mental processes and optimally balance all your cognitive functions. The starting frequency is 8 Hz for 5 minutes, followed by 6 Hz for 5 minutes and then 4 Hz for 50 minutes. How ever you can adjust session length by editing program settings in the app.
One of biggest struggles is lack of sleep. And god knows how crucial sleep quality is for your body and mind.
A good night’s sleep is important for both – our mental and physical health. However, lots of people struggle with insomnia, or find it difficult to switch from working to sleep mode.
In sleep and deep relaxation, our brains function from 1 to 5 Hz. While we sleep, the frequency is low, as it is when we are relaxed.
The starting frequency of Improve sleep mode is 5 Hz for 5 minute, followed by 3.5 Hz for 5 minute, followed by 2 Hz for 50 minutes. We would suggest one session before you climb into bed, and one once you are in bed with your eyes closed. Fortunately, Bellabee is so thin and comfortable, you can wear it in your sleep! Simply select “Improve Sleep” on its app and get comfortable. You’ll feel amazing the next day.
‘Create custom therapy
You can set custom therapy choosing frequencies range and duration.
Human brainwave frequencies range from 0.5 – 135 Hz. Combinations of these frequencies are always present in various amplitudes and symmetries, with a dominant “leader” frequency or frequency band that is considered normal for each state. Deviation from the normal frequency can cause problems and disorders. Achieving equilibrium between the brainwaves in the right and left side of the brain (inter-hemispherical symmetry) is also important for the brain to function properly.) Natural brain frequencies are as follows: alpha: 8-12 Hz; beta, 12-30; theta: 4.0-8.0 Hz; delta: 0.5-4.0 Hz, and gamma: 30 Hz and above.
Alpha: 8-12 Hz
Beta: 13-30 Hz
Theta: 4.0-8.0 Hz
Delta: 0.5-4.0 Hz
Gamma: above 30 Hz
The natural human brainwave frequencies for each band are shown below. These frequencies can be picked up by an EEG (Electroencephalogram) from the surface of the brain after amplification, as they are in the range of micro-volts (which are very low voltages, so low that they can only be seen after amplification by an EEG machine. A mixture of these frequencies is present at any given time.
Normal Brain Waves
Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG)/Brain Mapping is a procedure that processes the recorded EEG activity from a multi-electrode recording using a computer and converts it into a brain map showing different brainwaves. QEEG can combine signals from many areas of the brain and represent it in the shape of a map showing different features. For example, some maps show all the frequency bands in different parts of the brain, others show a single frequency band across the brain, while others show comparisons of the brain areas. This in-depth computerized analysis of the digital EEG can assist and even augment our understanding of the EEG and brain function as seen below:
There are several conditions that can lead to brain wave deviations, including:
Brain WavesWhen certain areas of brain are in an over-arousal state, individuals can experience:
Under-arousal of the brain is related to:
Unstable brainwaves are seen in:
Gamma brain waves cause hyperactivity; and when there is excess of hyperactive brain waves, it can lead to:
Electromagnetic therapy can change brain activity to help people who are experiencing symptoms of certain mental health conditions.
EEG Frequency Bands in Psychiatric Disorders: A Review of Resting State StudiesDeviations in frequency bands, from a normal population data-set, are presented across a spectrum of psychiatric disorders, including:
Dominant results for each individual disorder and band. (A) Differences in absolute power for each disorder (relative to control) for eyes closed condition (top), eyes open (middle) and eyes open and closed combined (bottom). White boxes indicate no change, black indicates an increase, and gray indicates a decrease. Opposing results are shown by hashed boxes. (B) Difference in results between absolute power and relative power for the same disorders. White indicates no difference, gray indicates a significant increase or decrease in one but no significant difference in the other, while a hashed box indicates opposite results.
Changes of the brain’s bioelectrical activity in cognition, consciousness, and some mental disorders
The raw EEG and QEEG images show that slow brain waves are seen in conditions such as:
While rapid waves are generally reported in conditions like:
Unsurprisingly, research into these brainwave abnormalities has led to intervention procedures where, using neurofeedback and other methods, the brain is coaxed to bring abnormal frequencies to the normative state. This helps lessen symptoms associated with specific conditions. These modalities have been so successful in helping mitigate many conditions that in certain cases the dosage of drugs used for the condition can be reduced, minimizing associated adverse side-effects.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy is one example where, by application of very mild electromagnetic pulses in the desired frequency band, many conditions can be improved without accompanying adverse-effects that can occur with pharmacological therapy. With wearable neuro-tech now a reality, PEMF devices can be used anywhere and anytime for a nominal cost, whether you intend to use it as a stand-alone device for home use or in combination with other types of therapy.
TYPES OF STRESS

SYMPTOMS OF STRESS
Effects of unhealthy stress on the human bodyShort Term Stress
There is no specific test to diagnose stress. Typically, your healthcare professional conducts a variety of tests (which may include a personal and family health history, blood and urine tests and other assessments) to rule out various medical conditions.
You can observe the following behavioural signs in yourself or people around you in stress:
EEG (ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY) AND QEEG FINDINGS IN STRESSNumerous studies and research papers are conducted on this topic. Some of the relevant ones are:
QEEG Biomarkers: Assessment and Selection of Special Operators and Improving Individual Performance
A quantitative EEG Normative Database (qEND) will function as the benchmark for screening, assessment, selection and even training of targeted individuals [who are] required to work effectively as operators under extreme stresses and for extended periods of time.
EEG Signals to Measure Mental Stress
EEG signals are rich in temporal resolution and [can] successfully be used to measure mental stress. This survey supplies information on EEG signals used in psychological studies to measure mental stress.
DeltaLess than 4 Hz20 – 200 microVoltIncreased power during difficult conditions
Theta4 – 8 HzAround 20 microVoltPower increases during the stress
Alpha8 – 12 Hz20 – 200 microVoltPower suppresses during the stress
Beta13 – 30 Hz5 – 10 microVoltPower varies according to task difficulty
Analysis of EEG signals during relaxation and mental stress condition using AR modeling techniques
Electroencephalography (EEG) is the most important tool to study brain behavior. This paper presents an integrated system that detects brain changes during relax and mental stress condition.
THERAPY FOR STRESSTreatment OptionsStress disorders are treatable, and the vast majority of people with a stress disorder can be helped with professional care. Several standard approaches have proved effective:
Sessions with a therapist to lessen symptoms of stress.
NFB trains the brain to change the brainwave frequencies to get the desired result. Usually, NFB sessions are conducted 2-5 times a week for a total of 40-50 sessions. Each session lasts 30-60 minutes. This seems like a lengthy procedure, but the results are long-lasting. NFB is becoming increasingly popular as a stand-alone therapy or used in combination by a specialist to help wean the patient off pharmacological agents that tend to produce undesirable side-effects.
Biofeedback Intervention for Stress, Anxiety, and Depression among Graduate Students in Public Health Nursing
Results indicated that biofeedback intervention is effective in significantly reducing the levels of stress, anxiety, and depression over the 4-week period.
Waking QEEG to assess psychophysiological stress and alertness during simulated on-call conditions
Our aim was to determine whether quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG) would reflect changes in cortical activity in on-call conditions, predicting that the high-stress condition would display faster QEEG frequencies compared to the control and low-stress condition.
Decrease in Anxiety after PEMF treatment. The above is a representation of the electrical activity of the brain by frequency after 20 minutes of use of Alpha-Stim® CES at 0.5 Hz. The EEG of 30 research volunteers was averaged and analyzed by computer to generate the average of brain changes in brain activity after 20 minutes of Alpha-Stim®. This is a difference brain map, where a decrease in activity after the use of Alpha-Stim® is shown in shades of blue and an increase in activity is seen in shades of yellow and red (green indicates no change). The above map shows that there is a decrease in delta, the 1, 2, and 3 Hz frequencies associated in waking individuals with impaired cognitive functioning. Significant increases are seen in alpha frequencies with peak activity at 9 Hz. Increases were also seen in activity at 12, 13 and 14 Hz, with 13 and 14 Hz activity centring on C3.QEEG Analysis of Cranial Electrotherapy: A Pilot Study
After a single 20-minute treatment with CES there is a significant increase in alpha frequency activity and a significant decrease in delta and theta activity. The post treatment maps indicate the effect of single session cranial electrotherapy treatment (CES) on QEEG is congruent with the reports of the research volunteers of decreased anxiety and increased relaxation.
Some of the recent, modern electromagnetic techniques are TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy. The use of electromagnetic therapy to alleviate many conditions have been used for over hundreds of years till the end of 19th century/ start of 20th century. Interest in it was subdued in the middle period of 20th century, but now the interest has again increased, as evidenced by increase in research and clinical studies in this field.
TMS equipment is costly, needs a clinical set-up and treats with current in the range of 1-2 Tesla. On the other hand, PEMF costs tremendously less, can be performed anywhere and anytime and the current used is in the range of 100-200 micro-tesla, significantly lower than TMS. This has led to popularity and preference for PEMF therapy, which is also used for other conditions like SLEEP (sleep disturbance), anxiety, depression, sleep improvement, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and meditation. The beneficial effects of PEMF are increasingly growing and gaining popularity because it is simple to use.
Mental Health: Stress, Anxiety, Depression and PEMF
PEMF has been found to be a very effective in the treatment of stress, anxiety and depression without the side effects that medications can cause. Rather than introducing foreign substances into the brain, PEMF electrically excites the neurons to dispense their own natural chemicals, helping to balance out deficiencies and restore normal brain function.
Effects of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMFs) on Stress
Long term use of weak PEMFs may be able to remodel tissues that are hyper-reactive to chronic or acute stress so that over time they will be less reactive.
Alleviating Stress with PEMF
Research has shown that daily use of PEMF therapy can alter stress responses by acting directly on the nervous system, glands, cells, tissues, and organs.
The FDA (USA) accepted the use of PEMF devices
for the healing of depression and anxiety
(two major consequences of unhealthy stress) in 2006
HOW TO USE BELLABEE PEMF THERAPY FOR STRESSYou can select “Anti-Stress” mode or use “Create Therapy” mode to customize therapy for Stress on Bellabee software. This software can be used with any android or IOS device.
Meditation with BellabeeWhat is Meditation?Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. When we meditate, we inject far-reaching and long-lasting benefits into our lives. We lower our stress levels, we get to know our pain, we connect better, we improve our focus, and we’re kinder to ourselves. Roughly 200 and 500 million people practice meditation around the world. Different groups of people meditate in different ways.
Types of Meditation There are many different ways to reach a meditative state. Some common ones are:
What does meditation do for the brain?Research into how meditation effects the brain has been rolling in steadily for a number of years now, with new studies emerging almost monthly to confirm additional benefits – including benefits from ancient times which are now being confirmed with fMRI or EEG. The practice appears to have an amazing variety of neurological benefits. Meditation:

Significantly increased theta power was found for the meditation condition when averaged across all brain regions. There was also a significant increase in alpha power in the meditation condition compared to the rest condition, when averaged across all brain regions.
Increased Gamma Brainwave Amplitude Compared to Control in Three Different Meditation Traditions
Meditation practice is correlated to changes in the EEG gamma frequency range that are common to a variety of meditation practices.
WAYS TO ACHIEVE MEDITATION STATEThere are many ways to meditate. In addition to types of meditation discussed above, the following can be used:
NFB trains the brain to change the brainwave frequencies to get the desired result. Usually, NFB sessions are conducted 2-5 times a week for a total of 40-50 sessions. Each session lasts 30-60 minutes. Although this seems like a lengthy procedure, the results are more long-lasting. NFB is getting extremely popular and used as a stand-alone therapy or in combination.
EEG-Guided Meditation: A Personalized Approach
Using QEEG screening can aid developing a meditation training program that maximizes results and minimizes risk of potential negative effects.
Quantitative EEG Study on Zen Meditation (Zazen)
The present EEG changes occurring during meditation may reflect intrinsic changes induced by Zazen, namely a mental state in which despite the attainment of relaxation the quality of consciousness is heightened.
Some of the recent, modern electromagnetic techniques are TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) therapy. The use of electromagnetic therapy to alleviate many conditions have been used for over hundreds of years till the end of 19th century/ start of 20th century. Interest in it subdued in the middle period of 20th century, but now the interest has again increased, as evidenced by increase in research and clinical studies in this field.
TMS equipment is costly, needs a clinical set-up and treats with current in the range of 1-2 Tesla. On the other hand, PEMF cost in tremendously less, can be performed anywhere and anytime and the current used is in the range of 100-200 micro-tesla, significantly lower than TMS. This has led to popularity and preference for PEMF therapy, which is also used for other conditions like SLEEP (sleep disturbance), anxiety, depression, sleep improvement, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and meditation. The beneficial effects of PEMF are increasingly growing and gaining popularity because of ease of use and simplicity of the apparatus.
