Please Read the Manual
One of the drawbacks of having an AVE device that's so easy to use is that the manual is rarely if ever read. Case in point, I've had my unit for 3 weeks and decided to read it last night. It's actually quite the reader friendly manual with charts and a nice, short explanation on why AVE works. If you don't have your AVE yet here's the text and for those with the DAVID delight pro - page 6
Welcome to the experience of the DAVID Delight Pro. A digital audio-visual entertainment (AVE) device, designed to support you in your quest for wellness by promoting various areas of the brain to work together in a harmonious fashion. Through the use of AVE you may experience yourself in a new and beneficial way.
Many users of the DAVID Delight Pro have reported experiencing:
Deep relaxation while feeling more energized
Visual images, colors and patterns
The sense of feeling grounded and calm
Increased mental clarity for resolving problems
Enhanced interpersonal relationships
How and why do these sensations occur? Several changes take place during and following an AVE session.
AVE involves dissociation. Dissociation is the first step towards the effective clearing of the mind and meditation. This clearing of thoughts and loss of body awareness is similar to what an experienced meditator would achieve. Cerebral blood flow increases. Most cognitive and emotional disorders involve areas of the brain that are low in blood flow. A study by Fox and Riechle (1985) showed AVE increased cerebral blood flow up to 28%
EEG (Electroencephalography) activity changes. The concept of entrainment is about altering brainwave activity. Quantitative EEG (QEEG) studies have confirmed the normalization of brain activity following an AVE session. Aberrant brainwave activity in various conditions such depression, anxiety, ADD, seasonal affective disorder, chronic fatigue, etc may be restructured into healthier patterns. Neurotransmitters change. Shealy et al. (1989) has shown that serotonin and norepinephrine increase following use of AVE.
