Ok, the spray on pancake batter was a bit too much, but....Awww you know you like this stuff! "The MotivAider"
If you're having trouble getting rid of a bad habit or behavior, or want to improve something about yourself, this device is supposed to help you, and help you do it more quickly....
It works by clipping on your belt and sending you a private signal that reminds you of what you're doing now, the goal you are going to accomplish, or to keep you on track ...
You create a strong personal message related to your goal, one that motivates you (I'll look sexy, if I stick to my diet) and then assign it the vibrating pulse that the motivaider sends you. You set the
Then when the motivaider sends you the vibration, you also receive the message as well, prompting you to make the changes you want without stressing you out and taking too much time.
From their site
The MotivAider gives new meaning to the word "versatile." Because it corrects for a fundamental flaw in the way the mind treats your good intentions, the MotivAider lets you make desired changes - both big and small — in virtually any area of your life. For example, the same simple tool will help you stick to a diet, improve your golf or tennis game, or improve your job performance. |
You can use the MotivAider to try out a new outlook or attitude, to stay focused at work, or to improve your image or your relationships. It can help you quit smoking, get organized, or be a better parent or partner. Or you can use it to improve your posture, reduce stress, become a more comfortable and effective public speaker, or stop biting your fingernails.
Looks like a pretty good idea, because it involves reminding you and doesn't promise to make your habits disappear doing nothing.... Think right Now!
According to Mike Brescia, you can overcome anxiety problems, lose weight, overcome depression and a lot of other things by playing this cd while you go about your daily business.
They're not subliminal programs- (They're insistant on that) you can hear the affirmations and messages clearly, but they are messages specially designed to have an impact on the listener's mind, as well a specially designed delivery process that makes the mind more receptive to the audio messages.
The site has many many testimonials, but I'm sure there are negative reviews out there too.
Lost 65 Pounds So Far! |
“I have now lost 65 pounds! I need another 10 - 15 lbs and will be at ideal weight! One year ago I was wearing a size 20 and now a size 8 to 10. I would have never believed that a change in my thinking patterns would cause me to be an entirely different person.” Candice (Deleted), North Carolina
Getting Stuff Done!
“I started beaming around the house, confidently attacking long-standing piles of paperwork that I had hesitated to make decisions on before, organizing files, getting rid of old clothes, making telephone calls I had put off before, actually getting through my To Do list quickly, and having more spontaneous fun than I thought I could with my children.”
-Esther Deleted, Canada

Photic Stimulation and PMS |
Dr. D. J. Anderson and his colleagues at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School at Hammersmith Hospital in London, England, recently completed a trial of photic stimulation for premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Their results were reported in The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (17(1): 76-79, 1997).
Seventeen women with confirmed, severe, and long-standing PMS were treated with photic stimulation for fifteen minutes a day for three months. The light device consisted of a soft mask, which covered the eyes and which had red LED lamps mounted one in front of each eye.
The patients were asked to use the device at home for fifteen minutes per day, every day throughout their menstrual cycle. They recorded their symptoms daily for two menstrual cycles before treatment, three cycles during treatment, and one cycle after treatment was stopped.
On average the women experienced a 76% reduction in their PMS symptoms at the end of three months of photic stimulation (see Figure 1). This level of improvement is greater that that reported for any other PMS treatment, be it fluoxetine (Prozac), hormones, relaxation, or vitamin and herbal supplements. By the end of the trial most of the women could no longer be considered to have PMS and would not have qualified to enrol in the trial.
The trial was not blind and thus was open to possible placebo effects. However, the magnitude and persistence of the improvement make a purely placebo explanation improbable, especially since most of the women had previously tried other PMS treatments without success and were consequently sceptical of this new and unorthodox approach.
