Resetting The Brain: Cereset To The Rescue


PHOENIX, Ariz. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — We’ve all felt it: life gets out of control, and we get stuck in a cycle of stress, and all the negative symptoms that come with it. Cereset is helping people “reset” their brain’s balance, using only sound feedback. It’s quick, non-invasive and patients don’t have to rely on medication.

That’s the sound of Jodi Whittemore’s brain frequencies being echoed back to her after being amplified and digitized into musical tones with these devices.

Cereset’s client services director, and certified medical assistant Sonya Crittenden compares the effect to tuning a piano.

Crittenden explained, “They listen to that and their brain is able to perceive its own activity and use that information to balance itself or recalibrate it.”

Jodi says it got her back on track after some stressful years with her family. Her daughter, Chloe’s five concussions caused anxiety, sadness, and problems focusing that stressed the whole family.

“I couldn’t sleep well, I didn’t feel well. I wasn’t motivated. I wasn’t productive.” Whittemore said.

Lead wires give technicians a lot of information about imbalances in the brain.  Sonya says the brain recognizes imbalances and corrects them.

“They’ve usually tried everything by the time they get to us,” said Crittenden.

The program is four in-office sessions of about 45-minutes experiencing the brain echoing process, then daily maintenance with a home unit. Jodi noticed changes three weeks to the day after her sessions.

Whittemore said, “Started setting new goals, and you know, started exercising again, taking care of myself better, just had a whole new hopeful outlook.”

The Cereset system, including the home headband costs about $2,000, depending on your location.  Cereset does not need to be FDA- approved because it is a relaxation and wellness system.

REPORT:       MB #4488

 STRESS: Stress is the body’s way of responding to any kind of danger or threat, real or imagined. The body kicks into defense mode, also known as fight or flight or stress response. It helps you stay focused, alert, and energized. In an emergency situation stress can even save your life, for example giving you the extra strength to defend yourself, but beyond a certain point, it can cause damage to a person’s health, productivity, mood, and quality of life if it become something they cannot control. Chronic stress can lead to depression, anxiety, sleep problems, pain of any kind, autoimmune diseases, digestive problems, and more.  It is important to become aware of stress symptoms and signs of stress overload.


TREATMENT: You can make certain lifestyle changes to ensure that you are managing and possibly even alleviating your stress. It is important to eat a balanced diet, limit your caffeine intake, exercise regularly and get enough sleep, meditate, take time for your hobbies, practice deep breathing, recognize and perhaps try to avoid the factors that trigger your stress, or even talk to a friend or family member. Be cautious if you are using substances like drugs or alcohol to cope with your stress or anxiety, as this can lead to serious substance abuse issues that will only emphasize the problem and worsen stress and anxiety.


NEW TECHNOLOGY: Cereset is a wellness company that has created technology to help the brain relax so people can recover from the detrimental effects of stress such as sleeplessness, depressed mood, or low energy. The device captures the patient’s brain activity, translates that into musical tone, and sends it back to the brain. The patient’s brain is then able to listen to it, perceive its own activity, and use that information to balance itself; thereby effectively relieving the patient’s stress levels. It can be used for anyone in any situation, and the patient can go into the office to receive treatment or purchase a kit to use in his or her own home. Most clients initially do four sessions in the office and then use the system at home for three weeks following. Finally, clients come back for one last integrated office session where they are assessed and a plan is built for them to use the device and manage their stress levels from home.
