Okay, what is "natural" sedation?
Let's first talk about what we normally regard as chemically induced sedation methods.
Orally prescribed methods include the taking of drugs called benzodiazepines. This chemical method works by slowing down the central nervous system by potentiating GABA transmission. These inhibitory synapses quickly sedate the individual to a sleep like state. They are not without risk in that practitioners must act as part time anesthesiologists to manage a potential rescue for those more deeply sedated in managing airway and cardiovascular complications.
IV sedation is another chemically induced method of sedation. This involves administration of a number of differing drugs through an IV that is carefully adjusted to each individual. Again, this technique is not without the same risks.
Nitrous Oxide sedation is another chemically induced method of sedation. This involves the inhalation of a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide titrated to effect a sedated state in a particular person. Not as much risk.
Natural sedation involves the combine use of four sensory applications to induce a powerful relaxation within 5 minutes. This technique involves ingestion of GABA and L-theanine, both non-prescription natural substances with one intrinsically found in the human system and the other the main element in green tea that supports the formation of GABA in the brain.
Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is used to facilitate the intrinsic release of alpha-rhythm neurotransmitters that promote deep stages of relation and anxiolysis. Alpha frequencies are at play in the brain in stage I of the sleep cycle, a deep relaxation level that does not involve deeper levels of REM sleep.
Neuroacoustic sound utilizing binaural beat is used to sustain a neuroacoustic entrainment of brainwave activity at the alpha level of 8-12 Hz. This part is what sustains this deep relaxation level.
Black out glasses are finally used to block light from the optic nerve, resulting in a 30% increase in alpha waves in the occipital cortex of the brain.
I know all this is very technical, but as you can see, we will have very soon a natural option for effective sedation without the typical risks involved and the individual leave more energized than when they came in for their appointment!
