Life with Meniere’s disease is a constant challenge.
There are so many moving parts that even when we’re doing well, everything can change in an instant. Meniere’s demands so much of us, and as much as we give, it’s rarely ever enough.
But as difficult as it all can be, we’re never powerless.
We may not be able to change the fact that we have Meniere’s disease, but we have control over every other aspect of our lives. And we can strive to be better. We can learn to take better care of ourselves, to better understand our illness, and to cope more effectively.
Over the last six years, I’ve learned a lot about how to live well with Meniere’s disease, but my secret weapon, the one thing that has helped me cope more than anything else, is meditation.
And after months of hard work, I have a special announcement: I created a new tool to help everyone experience all of the incredible benefits of meditation.
But we’ll get to that in a moment.
Meditation isn’t easy:
It can be frustrating at times, but I love to meditate.
It’s improved nearly every aspect of my fragile health. It not only dramatically increases my mental energy and ability to cope with brain fog, but reduces my stress levels and anxiety as well, both of which are major triggers for Meniere’s disease.
And it helps me stay grounded, making it easier cope with all of the emotional turmoil that Meniere’s constantly throws my way.
But after all the time I’ve invested, I still struggle with meditation. It’s a miracle I’ve stuck with it all.
When I first started out, it was incredibly difficult to focus my thoughts. My mind constantly wandered and I always felt like I was doing it wrong. I would get bored and restless, and almost quit on several occasions.
Meditation may be simple, but it’s not easy, and it takes time to see the kind of results that most people want to see.
A lot of people feel they don’t have the disposition or the patience to learn how to meditate. For others, the heavy handed connection to new age spirituality can be a turn off, too. In his bestselling book, 10% Happier, Dan Harris gets right to the heart of the matter:
“Meditation suffers from a towering PR problem, largely because its most prominent proponents talk as if they have a perpetual pan flute accompaniment. If you can get past the cultural baggage, though, what you’ll find is that meditation is simply exercise for your brain.”
What I’ve found, however, is that most people with Meniere’s disease don’t practice meditation. And that’s a shame because it’s such a powerful tool that could improve the lives of millions of people.
The good news is that there’s an easier and more enjoyable way to start meditating. One that will be very familiar for many of you.
About a year ago, I launched the Mind Over Meniere’s Symptom Relief Project. It’s an album of Brainwave Training audio tracks, each engineered to help relieve a different symptom.
I was following a hunch when I first created it and wasn’t really sure what to expect, but today, it’s used regularly by hundreds of people around the world. And the feedback has been more positive than I ever could have imagined.
So for the last year, I’ve been hard at work building new tools for the Meniere's community with the same powerful brainwave entrainment technology.
And today, I’m proud to announce my latest creation:
A 42 track audio meditation program called Zen Vitality, created for you to instantly and effortlessly experience the deepest levels of meditation.
Deep meditation at the push of a button:
It all starts with our brainwaves: the electrical signals our brain cells use to communicate.
During meditation, our brainwaves change in a very specific and predictable way. Research, in which scientists measured the brainwaves of Buddhist Zen Monks in deep meditation, has shown this time and time again.
In fact, there is actually a specific brainwave pattern directly associated with everything we do and every single way we could possibly feel.
So meditation changes our brainwaves, but remarkably, the opposite is also true. We can induce a state of deep meditation by changing our brainwaves with an external stimulus. This effect is called Brainwave Entrainment.
By engineering a Brainwave Entrainment audio track to induce the same brainwave frequency patterns observed in the Monks, you end up with what is essentially a guided meditation that communicates directly with your brain. As you listen to it, you will automatically experience the same deep level of meditation within minutes.
Suddenly, regardless of who you are, or how much experience you have, you can start to get all of the benefits of meditation right away rather than months or years from now.
And all you have to do is press play, it’s that simple.
After months and months of testing, and perfecting the finished product, I am finally ready to announce the details!
The full Zen Vitality program includes:
42 Audio meditation MP3s: Totaling 18 hours of audio
3 styles of meditation: Each level features meditations mixed with relaxation music, ambient nature soundscapes, and soothing white noise.
Short 15-20 minute meditations and long 30-40 minute meditations: No matter what your schedule looks like, or how much experience you have with meditation, Zen Vitality will work for you!
Seven levels of Meditation: Each level is designed to bring you to a deeper meditative state than the last.
Mobile App Access – Just like with the Symptom Relief Project, in addition to downloading the tracks, you can stream the meditations at any time with your smartphone or tablet (Available for Android and iOS)
Special bonus tracks: designed to improve sleep, focus, and so much more!
It’s time to start meditating!
(There is a free 15-minute meditation for you try it out!)
