The Brain Tuner In Naturopathic Medicine
Quotes about the Brain Tuner from Super-Learning 2000 by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder
"Instruments like the Brain Tuner 5, for instance, generate frequencies that evoke bother IQ- and memory-boosting chemicals while also proving to be powerful healers of addiction and depression." Page 96
"The implications of this work are stunning,"says physicist Bob Beck, the expert on electromagnetic fields, long employed as a consultant to the Department of Defense.
Beck, a close friend of Meg Patterson, was soon swept into an adventure of discovery. He studied all her research and everything he could uncover in the Defense Department. Working with spectrum analyzers and sophisticated equipment, he came up with a device: the Brain Tuner 5+, which broadcasts the frequencies of the three "magic" ranges of neurotransmitters – enkephalins, catecholamines, and beta-endorphins. He set up the frequencies in bundles. Instead of sounding one for each neurotransmitter separately, he put 256 frequencies together like a resonating chord of music. His device, smaller than a Walkman, runs on a 9-volt battery and is safe. The Brain Tuner has electrodes on a stethoscope-like headset that fit in the hollows behind the ears. Acupuncture points behind the ear effectively circulate electro-stimulation on the "Triple Warmer" Meridian. You wear the device just twenty minutes per day.
"Double-blind studies were done at the University of Wisconsin on the BT 5+’s capabilities to overcome drug-withdrawal symptoms and it did the job. Studies at both Wisconsin and the University of Louisiana showed it could boost IQ from twenty to thirty points. BT Five-Plus stimulation appears to enhance neural efficiency,"researchers stated.
'Users report the BT Five-Plus reduces stress, improves short and long term memory, helps learning, increases energy, improves concentration and reduces pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep requirements."
"Dr. Donald Kubitz, of San Fransisco, one of the first American doctors to study Dr. Wen’s work with elecracupuncture on addicts, believed electrostimulation could be enormously beneficial for autistic and other mentally handicapped children.. Both the BT Five-Plus and electro-acupuncture could prove popwerful new ways to open fabulous new dimensions of mind as well as overcome disabilities and addictions. Now the latest model, the BT 6, has just made its debut."
Refgerence to Dr. Meg Patterson:"Scottish surgeon Margaret Patterson studied Wen’s methods in Hong Kong. Back in England she developed highly sophisticated machines tha tproduced neurotransmitters by electrostimulation of the brain. Then she set up her own treatment center in California. J Famous clients were flown in, some on stretchers – rock superstar Peter Townshend for one, guitarist and composer for The Who and creator of the hit rock musical Tommy. A drug addict for years, Townshend had spent a fortune trying to kick his hgabit. Within forty minutes of applying the device, the heroin was counteracted. Ten days of treatments later he was over his addiction to heroin, alchohol, and cocaine, with no withdrawal symptoms." Page 204

Chapter Nine: "Recharging the Batteries"
"Beth was given anesthesia when she gave birth to her first baby and later found that she had lost part of her memory. She was forced to give up her job in an aerospace plant. Years later a friend gave her a small cranial electro-stimulation (CES) device and she began using it.
‘Almost overnight,’ she said, ‘all my memories started coming back, including everyone’s telephone extensions at the plant. It was uncanny – all those old extension numbers of people I hadn’t thought of in years.’
"This story, told to me by researcher Bob Beck, Ph.D., provides graphic evidence of a key fact: We have electrically-powered brains. Each of the billions of neurons in our brains is a tiny electrical generator, as complex as a small computer, firing an electrical signal that triggers the release of various neurochemicals and links it with thousands of other neurons."

"The Brain Tuner (BT 6) was devised by Bob Beck, Ph.D., It uses a complex waveform that, according to Dr. Beck, produces over 250 frequency harmonics simultaneously – "all known beneficial frequencies for the natural stimulation of the brain’s neurotrnasmitters." Page 100

RESTORING BRAIN CHEMICALS – Electrical Stimulation of Brain Chemicals
"Since addiction, withdrawal, and anhedonia are the result of insufficient levels of certain brain chemicals, or undeveloped pleasure centers and pleasure pathways, the most direct way of eliminating them is to restore optimal levels of the brain chemicals, to stimulate the pleasure centers and pleasure pathways. One of the most exciting breakthroughs in the treatment of addiction has been the discovery that stimulating the brain quickly to pour out large quantities of the neurochemicals that have been suppressed by addictive substances.
"As an electrotherapy researcher, Bob Beck described it to me, this was originally discovered when scientists analyzed the brains of rats that had been addicted to opiates"
The rats that were addicted had been getting so much opiate that the little endorphin factories in the brain would shut down and basically say, "Look, our body’s got too much of this. Quit manufacturing it…" …
… and it would take anywhere from a week to three weeks before the brain of each rat would begin manufacturing beta-endorphins again. Whereas in the brains of the control rats that had never been addicted, you would find the normal, expected levels of beta-endorphin. And then they would take a third group of addicted rats, cut them off ‘cold turkey’ from the heroin, clip miniature electrodes to their ears, and within 20 minutes of electrical stimulation… the brain of each rat began showing that the endorphin production had started up again. So, those rats wouldn’t go through withdrawal symptoms!
"This evidence quickly led to the use of CES devices in the treatment of humans."
