The world we live in today presents so many distractions and influences that contribute to an imbalanced brain. Stress is everywhere, and so are junk foods. What’s more, addictive substances are proliferating and existing in some new, legal forms which when taken can cause certain changes in brain chemistry.
“Substance abuse comes in many forms – drugs, alcohol, medication, food, etc – and all of these have a chemical effect in the brain,” Gerdes explains. He added that alcohol and drugs can either deaden or change the user’s brain function, and ultimately compromise wellbeing in one or many ways.
Gerdes’ Brain State Technologies has helped over 4,000 people with substance abuse problems. It espouses a holistic and non-invasive approach in achieving greater brain balance and harmony.
“A balanced brain – one which is not ‘stuck’ in an unbalanced pattern – is one which can move readily to higher activation levels when the task at hand demands, and one that can also relax fully to regenerate when regeneration is needed,” Gerdes said.
