However, this isn’t quite so ridiculous at it may at first sound.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US now have research to show that blood flow affects nearby neurons.
This is nothing new, but perhaps just more definitive proof of what I have been saying when working with clients. For instance, it has been agreed that low blood flow to the brain is related to instances of poor mental health, such as ADHD.
Within my own field of work I have been using a system of Audio-Visual Entrainment or Stimulation (AVE) as part of my Brainwave Conditioning System. Part of the benefit of AVE, beyond the effect on brainwave activity, is that there is an increase in blood flow to the brain. This is especially shown in the pre-frontal cortex of the brain.
With AVE there is no need to stand on your head to gain benefit, but simply to sit quietly for about 30 minutes wearing headphones and eye glasses.
Of course, with this research from MIT there will now be a drive in the developments of medicines to increase blood flow to specific areas of the brain. However, there are other ways like AVE which can also produce beneficial results.
