Can Binaural Beats Help with ADD

Ever since I could remember, learning at school was a massive event. It was kind of funny because I remember being in class and telling myself “FOCUS!”, “FOCUS!”, “FOCUS!”. I was so focused on telling myself to focus that I would miss the lesson entirely. My mind would stray away often and for long periods.

Most of the time I had to ask my classmate to tell me what we had to do. During my time in school, there were no diagnoses that didn’t include being labeled “LAZY,” “DUMB” or “STUPID”. I no longer feel as I did as a school-age child. I can say with full conviction that my first binaural beats helped me transition into becoming a smarter individual.

Can Binaural Beats Help with ADD and ADHD? 

Binaural beats can help an individual with ADD (attention deficit disorder) and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Most individuals with these disorders have trouble staying in the specific brainwave that allows them to maintain attention and focus. In fact, the brainwave that helps us maintain focus on certain tasks is hardly used with individuals suffering from ADD or ADHD.

Allowing the brain to exercise being in the brainwave that sustains concentration and focus will help those who struggle to be fixed on something important. With the help of binaural beats, people will no longer think that they don’t care, are lazy or worse, dumb. 

Will Binaural Beats promote Focus and Concentration?

Binaural beats and other brainwave entrainment tools promote and help with focus as well as concentration. Whether you suffer from some type of learning disability or just want to do better; improving your focus and concentration, as well as allowing your brain to maintain brainwaves that encourage amazing focus and concentration is key.

If you are like many, keeping prolong attention to most things no longer matters. The internet gives us snippets of everything we consume. If something gets boring we quickly can find something that conquers our attention. With or without learning disorders we are set out to fail, when it comes to focus, in this new digital era.

Do Binaural Beats Help Concentration?

Binaural beats not only helps with concentration, but it also helps with creativity, gives you more energy, as well as helps you reach a meditative state, among other things. As I mentioned before, learning at school was the least of my worries. I could not concentrate on the words that were coming out of my teacher’s mouth.

Although learning is part of comprehending the material, some groups of people can’t get past being able to consume let alone comprehend the material. As I listened every day, multiple times a day my entrainment audio, learning how to focus was starting to become a familiar feeling. 

Focus Concentration

Which Brain Waves are Best for Concentration?

The brainwaves that are best for concentration in attention-deficit are Beta brainwaves. So, what is Beta Brainwave anyways? Beta brainwave is around 12-30 Hz. Unfortunately, some ADD and ADHD individuals stay in Theta brainwave. This brainwave moves them into a dream-like state that is difficult to get out of.

For those that don’t struggle with attention disorders, a Beta and Alpha brainwaves are ideal. For those dealing with ADD and ADHD, maintaining a practice of being comfortable in a Beta brainwave helps the brain transition into a focused state easier. There are also other entrainment audios that help you maintain Gamma Brainwaves longer. This is known to help in structuring and formulating ideas beyond the scope of the information that is being consumed or presented to the individual.

Can Binaural Beats Increase Intelligence?

Yes, binaural beats can increase, intelligence. It actively stimulates the brain to maintain the correct brainwave. It consistently trains the brain into maintaining brainwaves that promote synchronized think, promoting more blood flow activating to build more neuron pathways. Increasing in numbers dendrites and synapses function. The increase of these functions allows information to flow smoothly, this induces an almost effortless type of thinking and reasoning.

Can Binaural Beats Increase IQ? 

Developing a practice with binaural beats have been reported to increase IQ. How could that occur? Well, During an IQ test several things are measured. One of these measurements includes your ability to solve mathematical equations. They also measure your short-term memory, spatial recognition as well as analytical thinking.

Confident Student

During the brainwave entrainment audios, more of your cognitive abilities are being strengthened and expanded. Moving into the brainwaves that are needed to solve problems, becomes a common territory for your brain. It is not fully tested, but I believe that the numbness in your brain when you first us binaural beats are due to brain fatigue.

If I were to measure the feeling I would get in my head when I was tackling a difficult math problem and the slight this comfort I would get when I would entrain my brainwaves, it almost felt the same. It’s almost like I was being rewired to think more efficiently and effectively.

What is a normal IQ? 

In my exploration to “not be dumb”, I was so looking for a way to see how I could raise my IQ. Now that I can focus and process information better, that is not important anymore. I am sure I would do well in an IQ test, but what would it really do for me in life? NOTHING!

Anyway, to answer the question, a normal/average IQ is between 90 and 110. If you want to be a baller, you need to score above 120. The highest score measured was 228, the individual who scores this score was a 10-year-old girl.

Brain Waves Frequency Chart. 

Although most brainwave frequency charts are for the most part similar, there may be some that are a few frequencies off. Knowing that the range of each brainwave falls in between the bandwidth of these spectrums. This will help you determine what brainwave you want to invest your time entraining.

Isochronic Tones for ADD/ADHD. 

Isochronic tones are another way to entrain your brain with audio tracks. The most obvious difference Isochronic tones have with binaural beats is the way they are delivered. Isochronic tones emit their tones in pulses with the same frequency being delivered to each individual earphone.

Binaural beats, on the other hand, has two different frequencies delivered separately to each individual earphone. The brain takes both frequencies and converts it into a different tone. Also, binaural beats commonly do not have a pulsating delivery. The mission to help you maintain the appropriate brainwave is shared by both isochronic tones and binaural beats.

Brainwaves for ADD and ADHD. 

When a person has attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, they usually tend to ride often in a Theta brainwave pattern (4 – 8 Hz). Some may try to boost themselves out of this state but just manage to seem hyperactive with little to no control for their actions.

There may be times when both ADD and ADHD individuals stay in Alpha brainwave longer than is recommended exhibiting depressive-like behaviors and feelings. The average person usually shifts from Beta to Alpha and back throughout the day, with Beta being the dominant brainwave. Those with disorders of attention (ADD, ADHD) struggle to maintain a steady Beta brainwave throughout the day, making daily and routine task burdensome to perform.

How Do You Know If You Have ADD? 

At the point of this writing, they have special devices that measure attention deficit. For those that don’t want to go to a professional to find out if they have attention deficit disorder, there are a few websites with different quizzes you can take. Some of the questions you can ask yourself are:

– Am I unable to focus?

Do I get stuck figuring out what task needs to be completed first?

Do I have inabilities completing a task I once felt passionate about?

Do I poorly perform or deliver work on a task that is repetitive and tedious?

Do I have an inability to sit or stand still?

Do those closes to me state my issues with impulsiveness?

Am I unable to pay attention to a conversation?

Although some of these symptoms may be due to the current culture of our “on-demand” lifestyle, you may see that focusing your attention on these simple task is grueling. If you feel like these questions can apply to today’s modern-day individual, consulting your doctor may give you more certainty.

There is a website that I found which is very useful for accessing your symptoms . If you feel that you want to take preventive maintenance, start a binaural beats practice that will help in exercising your brain. Helping you maintain a healthy regular amount of Beta, Alpha and Gamma brainwaves.

Is ADHD in Adults Real?

 Unfortunately, growing into adulthood does not exempt you from this disorder. Most adults that have ADHD, have had it since they where adolescents. They were either not diagnosed during their school-age years or the term Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder was not part of any medical dictionary.

Most adults that have ADHD were either labeled lazy or dumb or worse “special needs”. I have a friend that is, in my opinion, a genius, but for a large number of his school-age years, he had to attend the special needs portion of the school. This left him with such a low opinion of himself and I believe deprived him of the opportunities he could have had if he was given the chance to excel. 

What Does ADD Feel Like in Adults? 

Adults with ADD usually feel overwhelmed by the simplest task. Chores around the house never fully get done without a system in place. At work, they are seen as irresponsible and not motivated to do their best.

Because delivering the best performance possible requires an employee to focus on the completion of an assignment, those with ADD fail to perform on their designated functions. Routines allow adults with ADD to finish simple tasks. If they do not device these routines their job does not get completed, no matter how critically important it may be. “Spacing out” on conversations and important appointments and deadlines is not uncommon.

Being treated like a child, because the simplest adult tasks are overlooked, weakens self-confidence. Being a child with ADD is not as embarrassing as being an adult that commonly gets reprimanded for forgetting to follow simple industry requirements.

You want people to respect you and treat you like an adult, but at times, you can’t get past the simple task of clocking in or out at work or forgetting to leave the keys to the equipment locker at work. Fortunately for me and others alike, using binaural beats meditative sessions often and regularly, tapered off those mistakes to almost a nonexistent problem.

Is ADHD Over Diagnosed in Adults? 

ADHD is well known to be over-diagnosed. Why is ADHD so over-diagnosed? One of the reasons there are so many diagnoses of ADHD and ADD is the increase in exposure and incentives to label focus inabilities a medical disorder.

Another reason so many people claim that they have an attention disorder is due to the prescription drugs that help the student without attention disorder study longer and harder. Anyone can say they have an attention disorder and no further investigation is made to verify that claim.

Many schools receive extra funding for every student diagnosed. Being diagnosed no longer remains a stigma, you are no longer seen as lazy or just dumb for not being able to keep up with the general population, which is a good thing. If only people knew about the power of frequencies and tones manifested in brainwave entrainment audios, ADD and ADHD would not be as much of an issue.

Can ADHD Be Mistaken for Something Else? 

Yes, ADHD can be mistaken for some other disorder. Many have found their ADHD diagnoses to be a detriment to healing their true ailment; wondering why the treatment was not successful for them.

Wondering why they would continue to exhibit unpleasant behavior that they and those close to them thought no longer would be an issue. There are a few disorders that have sometimes been ignored and labeled as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. These disorders are:

Anxiety Disorder

– Bipolar Disorder

– Mood Disorder

– Autism

– Low IQ

– High IQ

– Old Age

– Addictive Disorders

– Personality disorders

– A child with normal, but undesired ENERGY

How to Avoid Misdiagnosis of ADHD. 

To answer the question about avoiding misdiagnosis of ADHD is as easy as not hanging on to every word of a doctor or specialist that suggest ADD or ADHD. Going into an appointment not expecting the diagnosis and or the treatment for ADHD or ADD is a start.

There have been many misdiagnoses that have been due to food or other brain impairments that had nothing to do with an attention disorder. These problems are not commonly treated with medication, which is strongly pushed and encouraged by pharmaceutical companies.

If you think you have ADHD and you feel popping some pills is the answer, take some time to completely understand ADD and ADHD and the risk of each medication. If you feel like you would like to give natural remedies like brainwave entrainment audios than regardless if you are misdiagnosed or you get the correct diagnoses, the benefits of having a solid practice of listening to binaural beats can only enhance your life.

Taking medication always gives you more health problems. Although you will not have any risk by listening to binaural beats or other brainwave entrainment audios, sometimes the result can take longer than if you were to take medications. When you take medications, you are risking the long term health of your body for the instant relief of today’s inconvenience.

I am not advising you not to start or even continue taking your medications. All I am saying is that there are other ways to help your brain to learn the proper brainwaves it needs to function normally. 

What is the difference between ADD and ADHD? 

There is really no difference between both ADD and ADHD because one is an offset of another. Hyperactivity in a person is a symptom which impulses a person to excessive moment. On the other hand, constantly spacing out instead of not being able to stay still, can also be another symptom.

As the name implies, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is diagnosed in individuals that have abnormally high impulses to move around. This symptom is almost always the case, but not a constant fact. Many ADD children may not even be diagnosed, because parents and teachers assume they are just daydreaming or are shy.

Binaural Beats Benefits the Brain. 

Binaural Beats benefits the brain when either you have brain disorders or if your brain is working normally. With binaural beats, difficulties using your brain to effectively process information will be minimized. You will be able to enhance your processing abilities to a normal state and perhaps beyond that.

If your brain is processing normally, you will move beyond an average functioning brain and your abilities will be heightened. Regardless of where you stand in life, you will receive benefits with the practice of listening to brainwave entrainment audios.
