IMPORTANT!

Please read this article before you start listening to Isochronic Tones, or Binaural Tones, all sorts of Brainwave Entrainment:
What is Brainwave Entrainment

Please turn on your critical mind when reading this article, they may have some important information, but they're also selling their own method.

Also read: Neurofeedback - Wikipedia

I haven't found any serious research articles about this method, there are some critical articles about it though.

Here's one: Read this before paying $100s for neurofeedback therapy 
"Update September 2013: A new randomised, double-blind placebo-controlled trial has just reported that neurofeedback therapy for children with ADHD was no more effective than placebo." 
I'm just trying to look out for you, so you don't get hurt in any way or are being deceived to pay a lot of money for a method that isn't scientically proven.

Wikipedia
Actually before when I referred to Wikipedia, they described the different methods of Brainwave Entrainment, but someone have been doing some hard core editing on that page. There's nothing about Isochronic Tones, to find on Wikipedia anywhere, but Binaural Beats have a large piece of text on that page. Even doing a searh on Wikipedia, writing "Isochronic Tones", nothing comes up.

Check this out, this is the originaly Wiki I've been referring to, try to understand the first parts of the text.
Brainwave entrainment 
Update: 12-12-16. Oh well, the page have been edited again, not a word about Isochronic Tones, but of course they have written about Binaural Beats.

Then if you search for Isochronic Tones you will get this:
Isochronic tones

And when you search for Binaural Beats, guess what:
Binaural beats

I hope you're aware about that anybody can log into Wikipedia and edit an "article".

I have googled on Isochronic Tones and haven't found any web page, that aren't trying to sell their own products or trying to promote other methods. So appearently this is big business for some people. The Isochronic Tones videos on my YouTube channel are free to listen at and to download for private use.

It's all about the Money!!!

The solution to the questions that some of you have

I'm getting the same questions over and over, even though I have provided a lot of information below the videos, all you have to do is to click. "SHOW MORE", the page opens up and you can get answers to your questions there.

Voff Ugglas Home - YouTube

If you are on a video page, then you have to click on my name, Voff Uggla, and you will be directed to the "Home Page", if you click on "About", you will be able to read the Description, there you will also find information. The last link/button, is the symbol for search, click on it and you will be able to do a search, searching for a specific frequency is the best, easier to get results. Searching for specific disorders is a bit more difficult, but you can always try.

Head cold and sinus infection

Last week I woke up on Monday morning, with fever and congested sinuses, a typical cold. My head felt like it was going to explode and then the sneezes started and my nose was really runny. I had to hold a tissue under my nose almost all the time and my sinuses hurt, all the sneezing and blowing my nose gave me pain in the muscles that were involved. Kind of strange that the common cold can make you feel so miserable, also I rarely get colds, it's 4 years since I last was sick, then I had the flu.

Anyway during the time I had the cold I was listening to this isochronic frequency: Head cold, Sinus infection, etc (Isochronic Tones 456 Hz) Pure Series  I didn't notice an immediate improvement, it actually felt worse in the beginning. But I kept on listening 15 minutes a day, and to my surprise my sinuses "slowly" cleared up, a week later my cold was gone and did NOT infect my bronchi as it usually does. The common cold has always started with the sinuses and then moved down to the bronchi, with 1 to 2 weeks of couhging in the past. But this time my immune system was able to fight the virus before it reached the bronchi.

I didn't get cured immediately by listening to this isochronic frequency, but it prevented the virus to reach my bronchi/lungs and by that I shortened the time of being sick. One week instead of 2 to 3 weeks.

The Plabeo Effect

A few days ago I watched a Science program on Swedish TV, where they presented the latest research about the 'Placebo Effect'. I found this to be very interesting, since I don't know if isochronic tones can have something to do with this, and I do think it has. In the program they told a story about a young man, who wanted to commit suicide, he swallowed a bunch of pills, lost consciousness, ended up in the hospital, his organs started to shut down and he was close to die. He didn't die and when they had analyzed the substance in the pills he had taken, it turned out to be sugar pills. So just him beliving that he was going to die from the pills, made his organs shut down and he was close to death. This is quite remarkable, placebo can actually have an effect.

There were also this scientist, talking about the clinical studies that have been done on antidepressants, the studies showed that placebo almost had the same effect as the actual medicine. Another scientist admitted a bit reluctantly that placebo can have the same effect as real medicine, but he also said it doesn't work on everybody, it also depends on what illness, when and where, etc. I'm sure the medical industri aren't that happy about this documentary...

The program I watched is called Vetenskapens Värld (The world of Science) on SVT and is actually accessible everywhere, so here's the url: Vetenskapens Värld Episode 28 The speaker talks in Swedish, but most of the scientists speak English. Well a lot of the program is in Swedish, but at least it's a source.

So if you belive in isochronic tones it can actually help, but always get a diagnos from the medical profession and for serious illnesses, follow the doctors advice. There are not enough scientific studies about isochronic tones out yet.

Here's a video from YouTube that explains it more
The Placebo Effect
"Sean Mackey, MD, PhD, explains the placebo effect. Mackey is the chief of Stanford's Pain Management Division and an associate professor at the School of Medicine."

Belly fat

Yesterday I read an article in a Swedish newspaper, that according to some recent research, the reason the body stores fat on the belly, is mainly due to lack of Estrogen, and to some degree Testosterone. The study was done on men, but I'm pretty sure that applies to women as well. When my estrogen levels began to decrease around 10 years ago I noticed that my belly grew fatter, at it's worst I looked like I was pregnant. My body have always had the tendency to store fat on my belly first, even when I was skinny (underweight according to the docs.), I still had a pouch of a fat deposit on my belly.

So now when I've lost so much weight the past 6 months My teeth and Weight loss same issue, that pouch of fat on my belly is still there, smaller, but...grrr... it's there. I guess it's hereditary to some degree, but I'm pretty sure in my case, it's an hormonal issue as well. As a child I was normal weight, until the teen hormones kicked in, all of a sudden my belly became huge. There was no change in diet or activity, the only thing that happened was that my hormones went "crazy" and made feel like a ballon and the ugliest girl on the planet. That lasted for about 5 years, by the time I was 16-17 I was back at a "normal" weight again.

It's difficult to say exactly when my estrogen levels started to decrease, I've been in menopause for 5 years now, but 2008 was the year I never been so fat in my whole life. I looked 6 months pregnant, belly and breasts were swollen, etc. A friend took pictures of me then and I got shocked when I saw those pics, I couldn't belive that it was me. I mean I knew I had gained weight but not that much, I looked horrible and the same feelings I had about my body from my teenage years came back.

I don't know if this study I read about is correct and I don't know if isochronic tones really works, however I'm going to start to listen to Estrogen - Production (Isochronic Tones 1,351 Hz) Pure Series  and Testosterone - Production (female) (Isochronic Tones 1,445 Hz ) Pure Series regularly to see if it makes any difference.

Meditation

I came in contact with meditation, 30 years ago, mainly the meditations that focus on the breath. While meditating you're supposed to direct your awareness on, breathing in and breathing out, and let the thoughts interferring with that focus, just flow by like clouds. Sounds easy huh!? No it isn't, not for me, as soon as I begin to focus on my breath, my mind interferes with the natural breathing. I become so focused on the breathing, that sometimes I find it difficult to breath at all, I feel like I can't breath, I start to swallow, anxiety builds up, etc. My mind is so focused on the breathing that I can't breath naturally, so this technique is definitely NOT for me.

This is one of the reasons that I became interested in isochronic tones, instead of focusing on my breath, my awareness is focused on the tones in my head. I find it more easy to meditate that way, I have several isochronic videos with frequencies  uploaded on YouTube that is suitable for meditation. My favorite is Gamma Brainwaves (Isochronic Tones 40 Hz) Pure Series 

I don't know if listening to this frequency actually will create gamma waves in my brain, I don't have the equipment to measure that. But I do find the tones vibration in my ears and head as "feeling" good, my subjective experience.

"GAMMA AND HYPER-GAMMA: 30 - 100 Hz
Gamma brainwaves are usually very weak in normal people but have recently been found to be very strong in Tibetan monks while doing a Loving Kindness meditation. 40hz becomes the dominant frequency of these monks while meditating and it is also the frequency that the core of Earth resonates to. A very important frequency when it comes to higher awareness and mystical experiences."

Here is an interesting study: Near-death experiences are 'electrical surge in dying brain'

Isochronic tones seems to improve my sleep

I haven't been listening to isochronic tones regularly for quite some time. This past week I've had severe sleeping problems, I haven't been able to sleep more that 3-4 hrs. Also my recurrent nightmare have been "haunting" me during my sleep, I have woken up with a pounding heart and feeling full of anxiety. Some nights I haven't been able to sleep at all, I've just grabbed a few hrs here and there during daytime, but even then I had nightmares.

Yesterday I felt so exhausted because of lack of proper sleep, so I decided to listen to isochronic tones again in the afternoon. First I listened to 15 minutes of  Gamma Brainwaves 40 Hz, later on I decided to take a nap. I went to bed with my mp3-player and headphones on, playing Sleep Aid with 1 hour Delta Waves and on my computer I had Rehabilitation of body and brain (by delta wave activity) 3 Hz playing on the speakers on repeat. I did sleep for maybe 1 and half hr. But I didn't feel well rested, so no more isochronic tones for the rest of the day and evening.

I went to bed early, I fell asleep around 9 pm, and I slept the whole night, no nighmares and I feel well rested today. Okay this is only one night, maybe it would have happened anyway, naturally, I don't know... I mean I was totally exhausted from almost 1 week of bad sleep. Now I've just listened 15 minutes to the gamma waves, I don't think I'll take a nap today, I feel too much awake for that, so I don't know if I will listen to anymore isochronic tones today... Maybe I'll listen to the "Sleep Aid" when it's time to go to sleep.

Question & Answers + Information about the creator.


Questions & Answers (Na'ven's Blog Post - October 13, 2012)
"People ask me the same questions over and over, so I figured I'd start answering them here.

Q.) How long should I listen to each tone?
A.) Listen as long as you'd like unless it states otherwise in the video. Also, try not to go over an hour a day so that you don't hurt yourself by making your brain stick on that frequency.

Q.) How do I use your tones? When should I use them?
A.) Just listen to the isochronic tones whenever you want to. Binaural beats require headphones, but isochronics do not. If you're trying to concentrate and use an isochronic tone for concentration, do it when you're trying to concentrate. If you're trying to be in oneness, use the isochronic tone for oneness while trying to be at one with the all.

Q.) Can I download your tones as an MP3?
A.) Yes you can. You need to download and install YouTube Downloader (It has a free version) and download the video. You'll have the MP4 file and you'll need to go to the convert tab to convert that file to MP3 format or other formats.
UPDATE 26-10-16
That was written 4 years ago, a lot has happened since then. First of all, now you can use your smartphones and listen directly from my YouTube channel. You can still download the videos for private use, but I can't give any advice on which YouTube downloader to choose, there are so many of them now, if you are using Firefox there are many different addons. You just have to find the YouTube downloader that fits your system. If you do download the videos and want to change format from MP4 to MP3, the same story, there is a lot of "free" software on the web. Select the ones that fits your system and the ones that you find the easiest for you to work with.
Also if you want to change the bit rate per second, I've found that 128 Kbps works the best, at least with my sound card, speakers, head phones/set and ear buds, but that's what's working best with my devices, you have to find what works the best for you.

Q.) How do you know what the frequencies are for?
A.) I find caches of frequencies all over the web and people will sometimes send me some of them. Here are the ones I have that are on websites.
http://www.lunarsight.com/freq.htm
http://electroherbalism.com/Bioelectronics/…CAFL.htm

Q.) Is it OK to listen to other things while listening to your videos? Can I listen to two at once?
A.) In short, no. If you listen to two of them or something else, you're inducing other frequencies and making the tone less effective. The pure series does not ramp frequencies or have other sounds on it so that it can stay pure and be looped. If you listen to something else while doing this, it COULD still work, but it will be less effective. This is why the pure series was created. Other videos were mixing the sound of rain and other things with the tones and making them less effective."
The pure series is only one frequency, no carrier tone, noice, music etc. Therefore that series is called, pure. :-) The isochronic tones are created in Audacity, first a sine tone is created, then it is modulated with the plugin; Isomod, and then converted into mp3.
More information about isochronic tones: Here

Isochronic tones does not require headphones, but, depending on your sound system, the settings, etc, the tones can sound different. I prefer to use my headset or ear buds, it gives me a "better" experience. Don't have the volume up too loud when using a headset or ear buds.

The best way to get the most out of listening to isochronic tones:
Sit and listen as if you are meditating, focus on the sound and your breath and relax. Let the thoughts just pass by like clouds. Many thoughts will come to your mind, it may take awhile until you notice, and when you do, don't get upset, let it go and continue with your meditation. This will happen many times during the "isochronic tone session" unless you have meditated for many years, this is totally normal for beginners at meditation.

There is a playlist for Delta Waves, frequency 0 Hz - 4 Hz, those are the ones you can listen to while you sleep. .Sleeping Aid Videos & Delta Waves Playlist

About the creator of the Isochronic tones
Today, (or yesterday my local time) I've noticed that Na'ven Goodkarma aka Na'ven Enigma aka FingerprintDIVA has closed her YouTube Channel - Na'ven Goodkarma She's also planning to close down her blog, soon... I've decided to close my website soon.(TLM). As an uploader of her isochronic tones, I have to take action. I can't refer to her in the future, I have 100+ of her original videos uploaded on my channel. In the description of all these videos I have referrals, to her YouTube Channel and Blog.

Na'ven's Blog post
Posted on: July 31st 2013
"I've decided to close my website soon. It doesn't seem to get anything posted to it except random tidbits now, so I decided it's time to close it down. I'm not sure when I'll close it, but I wanted to leave it up for a little longer so that if you want to save any information on here or gather any downloads, you can do so. Sometime around September I'm hoping to be shutting it down. If you want to host information from this site, feel free to do so. I do ask that you tell me what you're interested in, though."
If you have any questions about FingerprintDIVA'S isochronic videos, I can only refer to the above post, that I have copied from her blog. If you can't find the answer here, send the question to me, if I can I will answer.

Update, August 4 - 2013
Just noticed that she have removed the above blog post, well what can I say, it was there a couple of days ago. It's kind of hard to keep up with her, name changes, blog post removals, etc, so I won't anymore. From now on I will credit her for the audios/videos as FingerprintDIVA, whitout any links/url's.

Update, January 2014
She also removed the blog post where she stated that all her isochronic tones was 'Public Domain', November 14 - 2012. She had a torrent open 2012, so anyone could download the isochronic videos and the frequency lists, she also encouraged "us" to upload her videos on YouTube, which I started to do. I have no idea why she removed that post, I wish I had taken a screen shot of it, then I would have some evidence that her isochronic tones are or were public domain, but I didn't. She wasn't able to upload any more isochronic tones on YouTube, all I know is that she was upset about her channel being terminated, that's why she wrote that blog post, but later on she removed it from her blog, for reasons that are unknown to me. Well I do have some saved email converstaions between us that maybe could count as "proof". But I don't know the copyright laws regarding publishing private emails.

So my previous blog post: More Isochronic videos to come... isn't valid anymore, except the last paragraph. I have no idea why Na'ven decided do this, I don't know her personally, we don't have any contact. But it's her decision, her choice, her life and that I respect. I just wanted to let you know.

More Isochronic videos to come...

I have looked through all the frequency lists and F-Divas collection of isochronic videos again. And I have found some more that can be worth uploading, I have it all organised, but will only upload a video once a week.

I'm aware of that people may have questions about, how to use Isochronic Tones. As I wrote earlier, I'm not the creator of the frequencies and I'm not a "healer", so I've found a page on Nav'ven's blog that may answer some of your questions, (just ignore the url to her YouTube Channel, it's gone.)  Q&A, Isochronic Tones - F-Diva

The videos, with blended/mixed isochronic tones, does require headphones to sound right. These videos are experimental, that I've mainly made for myself, so if it doesn't sound good or if you experience any discomfort, please don't listen. I still listen to them, but not every day as I did before.
