IN THIS EPISODE OF BULLETPROOF RADIO...  You’ll find out how award-winning speaker and author Dr. Patrick Porter developed tools that help your brain access its optimum state through brainwave entrainment. 

Brainwave entrainment means that different sounds, like Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones, are pulsed into each of your ears to stimulate your brain into an altered state of consciousness. In a good way! This can improve your focus, energy, relaxation and deep sleep.

Using guided meditation, Dr. Porter’s BrainTap device uses a neuro-algorithm to synchronize your brainwaves to a specialized sound. That results in full-spectrum brainwave activity. Each session ensures the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections, also known as neuroplasticity.

Dr. Porter has been a leader in brainwave entertainment tech for more than three decades years. He previously developed the world's first personal sound and light brain-training machine, the mc2, and created a Behavior Repatterning device. He’s written several books about the brain, including: Awaken the Genius: Mind Technology for the 21st Century; Discover the Language of the MindThrive in Overdrive: How to Navigate Your Overloaded Lifestyle; and  Awaken Your Flourishing Brain.

Dr. Porter continues to widen the scope of what we know about brain capabilities and performance. He says,” We've got this globally world-class brain that can do incredible things for us,” but people often aren’t listening to it.

“Once we started being able to measure the brain, we could track how the brain changes,” he says. “We know that every three to five seconds, we need to make a change or interrupt the pattern. If not, the brain will go “bye-bye,” – it's like advertising. The brain only has so much.”

BrainTap increases your production of neurotransmitters, leading to a more balanced brainwave state. Even if you can’t stay in that balanced brain state, the feeling of that optimal mode will stick with you and will be within reach at all times. It’s like a flow-state from meditation if you’ve experienced that. But you don’t have to be a meditation expert to experience benefits. BrainTap allows even complete beginners to see immediate progress

You can do the BrainTap sessions at different times of the day when you naturally lose energy, helping you with things like sleep, focus, concentration, mindfulness, memory, stress and anxiety. The sessions also have been shown to increase athletic performance and recovery, and even help with addictions.

In this episode, Dr. Porter explains the four elements of BrainTap, including Binaural Beats, Guided Visualization, 0-Cycle Holographic Music and Isochronic Tones. You’ll get to geek out on all the ways your brain affects your body (and vice-versa) and learn what you can do to reach your full brainiac potential.

 “Our brain actually is always syncing to its environment,” Patrick says. “That's why if it's chaotic {that it’s] causing some disruption. You have to filter it out. You have to learn how to do that.”
