We are pleased to announce the results of a controlled medical study involving the use of Hemi-Sync during surgery. These results were published in Anaethesia, August 1999, 54, pages 769-773 in an article entitled “Hemispheric-synchronization during anaethesia: a double-blind randomized trial using audio tapes for intra-operative nociception control,” copyright 1999, Blackwell Science Ltd.
Despite attending the Gateway Voyage®, Guidelines® (twice), Lifeline® (twice), Heartline, and Exploration 27®, Dirk Dunning still sometimes wondered if his experiences in the far reaches of consciousness could be trusted. In the aftermath of a serious accident, he reaffirmed a Different Overview of anomalous healing and the powers of the mind.
The following article on Ms. Ballweg’s use of the EMERGENCY SERIES to decrease pain and anxiety relative to surgery is excerpted and reprinted from the Endometriosis Association Newsletter, Vol. 12, No. 6, with its permission.
"Robert Monroe developed the Emergency Series (now called Surgical Support) of six tapes for use before, during, and after surgery in 1977. Since that time, I have had a number of opportunities to recommend the tapes to friends and patients all over the United States. In every instance, there were reports of absence of anesthetic hangover effects, little or no pain, and early discharge from the hospital. In other words, the tapes facilitated rapid recovery."
When I learned I had skin cancer and needed surgery I decided to use the MIAS Emergency Treatment tapes. [Now available as the SURGICAL SUPPORT SERIES.] I was unable to provide for adequate monitoring of the effect of the tapes because of the rapidity of events. But what did happen is quite positive from the point of view of Bob’s tapes.
"These and other successes inspire me to work and hope for more complete integration of psychiatric and psychological services into the hospital system. I am negotiating with the various services to make Hemi-Sync more readily available. Hospital television already has a relaxation channel. Current offerings could be expanded to include Hemi-Sync presentations and instruction in using a variety of Hemi-Sync tapes, as well as consciousness expansion methods. Both patients and their caregivers stand to benefit from a partnership between standard interventions and complementary resources."
Bob Roalfe is an anesthesiologist from California who has used the Hemi-Sync Emergency Treatment Series tapes with a number of his patients. He presented a number of case studies that represented the range of responses to the tapes.
Nine years ago, Gari Carter sustained near-fatal injuries which permanently transformed the direction and purpose of her life. Thus began her long and courageous journey from pain, fear, and disfigurement to health and wholeness. Ms. Carter has documented her experiences in Face It, a book about her accident, reconstruction, and recovery. The following is an excerpt from her manuscript.
"The Hemi-Sync system is at the heart of this approach, plus tapes with similar features that are personalized for the unique problems and symptoms of each patient. All of my patients and I have been impressed and pleased with the results."
