Advanced Mental Training to Maximise your Success
The Brain Buddy

The Brain Buddy

The Brain BuddyThe Brain Buddy™ is a portable device which can help improve your mental fitness and performance.

~ New 2016 version of The Brain Buddy™ is now available, now incorporating CES technology and upgraded training sessions ~

The Brain Buddy™ uses the latest advances in neuro-technologies to provide a powerful, yet simple way to control, improve and manage your mental states.

The device is battery operated, providing portability in a variety of situations where you’d like improved mental performance – at home, at work, in education or in sport.

It integrates the technologies of audio-visual entrainment (AVE), cranial-electro stimulation (CES) and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) into one single device.

These technologies have been shown to:

  • Improve focus and concentration
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve sleep
  • Improve your mood
  • Improve memory
  • Improve IQ
  • Boost your academic and cognitive performance
  • Improve mental performance in sport or when under pressure


How does this work?

The AVE element of The Brain Buddy™ uses glasses emitting controlled pulses of light and headphones delivering pulses of sound.  These carefully controlled frequencies can guide your brain to a different mental state.  For instance, it may be to access a calmer more focused state before a high pressure situation in work or in a sports competition (yes, you can wear this in many sports and is not yet banned!)

The CES element of The Brain Buddy™ uses two ear clips which produce a small pulsed electrical current. This stimulates endorphins, serotonin and norepinephrine neurotransmitter production. Which studies have shown reduces anxiety, improves sleep and improves mood.  The CES device may also be worn in situation while performing your activity.  So a sports person such as a golfer or sporting clays shooter can use this to help maintain mental composure while under pressure.  Or a student could use this while actively studying or in an exam.

The device is programmed with different sessions, suitable for different applications and objectives.


Benefits of Audio Visual Entrainment:

Mental Dissociation. The clearing of thoughts from the mind and physical relaxation, similar to what a Zen meditator would experience.

Cerebral blood flow increases. The blood flow within the brain can increase by up to 28% (Fox and Reichle 1985). Many cognitive and emotional disorders involves areas of the brain low in blood flow.

EEG activity changes. The concept of “entrainment” is about altering brainwave activity. It is possible to normalise brainwave activity to a healthier pattern and to assist in training an individual to control their brainwave activity for peak mental performance.

Benefits of Cranial-Electro Stimulation:

Most studies to date have shown CES as a reliable method to reduce anxiety and improve cognition in recovering alcoholics. Additional studies have shown CES to be an effective tool in reducing situational anxiety and improving IQ. Situational anxiety includes many things, such as seeing a dentist, writing exams, driving in busy traffic, job stress, performance in competitive sports.

Research to date is incomplete on the effects of using CES at various frequencies, citing both low and high frequencies can be effective for improving learning and reducing anxiety and pain. Many people who used CES along with AVE, have reported that they experienced deeper relaxation for prolonged periods of time. In addition to enhancing entrainment, CES increases neurotransmitter production. These neurotransmitters are necessary for information processing, memory, energy level and physical well-being.

Brain Training Tips

“You Can Improve Your Memory By 300%,
Speed Read ANYTHING Six Times faster
And Be Instantly Smarter (With A High IQ)

…All using the same powerful Brain Training Secrets that Billionaires, Olympic Gold Medallists, and even
World Memory Champions use to stay on top of their game!”

From the desk of Henry Hopking:

Dear Friend,

If you’d like to improve your memory… increase your IQ… and learn how to read at warp speed (with excellent retention), then you’ve come to the right place.

Because on the following page, I’m going reveal the very same secret brain training skills and secrets a World Memory Champion has used to beat out his competition not just once… but EIGHT times!

You’ll discover how to:

  • Remember any facts and recall them whenever you want
  • Improve your IQ by as much as 10-15%
  • Improve exam results by at least a grade (C grade to A grade)
  • Never struggle to put a name to a face
  • Have confidence in meetings and social situations
  • Know which foods can boost your brain power
  • Read any book in a fraction of the time it currently takes you
  • Spend less time learning and still remember more
  • Have laser-sharp concentration

…plus much more!

For the last decade I have been researching the cutting edge techniques to improve your brain power. Until now these have been taught only in my exclusive private training sessions with a select few individuals.

Now I am considered as THE expert in the field of brain training. In the UK I have a regular BBC feature discussing brain training and related news. My consulting work takes me to many countries and I am privileged to coach some of the great minds on this planet. From budding entrepreneurs to Billionaires. From sporting legends to Olympic medallists.

Your expert coach:

So what is my story and authority on this, you ask?…

Fifteen years ago, I was considered “average” at school. Exams were very stressful and I always felt the results never reflected my true potential. I knew that I could do better, but first I needed to learn how to use my brain. No one had ever taught me this important skill. That was all about to change…

Ten years ago I committed myself to seek the very best information on brain development. This took me to many countries and I met 100’s of people. Some of these were natural geniuses; others were scientists trying to unlock the secrets of the brain. There was also a lot of rubbish information out there, so I have filtered all of that out for you, leaving just the powerful techniques which work.

This subject fascinates me so much and I continue this research and develop new techniques to help you to easily improve your brain power. This information is now ready for you…

The successes you will follow…

Over the years I have taught these techniques to my elite clients and or course used them myself. Clients have gone on to win an Olympic Gold Medal, numerous World Championship and World Cup titles in sport.

Students who were predicted a D grade in exams turn this around in a matter of weeks to get straight A’s and B’s, astounding their teachers.

Executives tell me how they have impressed their employer so much that they were then given big bonus cheques. Some have gone on to take more professional exams and passed with flying colours.

Oh yes, many of my old teachers and friends were surprised when I won the bronze medal in the Speed Reading Championships and also won the bronze medal in the World Championships for Creative Thinking! I learnt how to get my brain into gear and boost my own brain power.

Has anyone ever taught you how to use your brain? Have you ever found a Users Manual for the brain? No? Well I want to change that for you.

You will learn:

  • How to memorise a deck of playing cards
  • The quick brainwave technique to eliminate mental stress
  • Powerful memory skills – impress your friend
  • Easily remember important numbers
  • How to read a 300 page book in just 45 minutes
  • Which super-foods can increase the speed of your thoughts
  • To manage stress while learning
  • Study skills for college
  • How to improve concentration while reading

… and much more

There are some very powerful techniques you can use to boost your brain power, just as I did. This information has been split into simple and easy tips for you, so with small regular steps you will soon be reaching your full potential.

How you will learn all this :

You will be given this information through my Brain Training Tips. These are weekly coaching sessions from me for a whole year. Every week you will receive a new brain training tip direct to your email inbox, each one building on the previous one.

Within the first few weeks you will have learnt how to increase your reading speed by 50%, you will start to learn the foundation skills to having a World Championship level memory. You will know the special super-foods which will quite literally help you think faster.

If you follow and practice these tips, within six months your memory will be in the top 0.5% of the world. By then end of the year you will be able to astound friends and family with seemingly impossible mental feats. Just like me, you will be able to read an fully understand a 300 page novel in under 45 minutes.

Quite simply you will be in the best mental condition of your life.

As you may already know, I regularly charge £3,000 for my private training sessions and consultancy work. So what would it be worth to you to have the very best parts of this training, but delivered to you directly on your computer screen? How about 10% of my consulting fee, at £300?

Chimps beat humans in memory test

You have to watch the video footage of this news report – it is incredible.

Recent research shows that chimpanzees have near photographic memories. Memory tests were performed for both chimpanzees and humans. The chimps were far better than the humans. With just a quick glance at the information (less than a second), they could then select hidden numbers in the correct order.
