Any invasive chemical – anything at all – supplements, medications, injections of anything, and even foods – can be an antagonist to brain patterns. My hypothesis is that any of these chemicals, if done for a sufficiently long time or if their toxicity is sufficiently potent, may disrupt brain patterns.

News reports yesterday indicated that Italian researchers have found that botulin toxin injected in the foreheads of rats and mice migrated to the brainstem and disrupted neuronal activity. The researchers are at odds with the manufacturer who challenges the accuracy of the results. Inconclusive or not, I, for one, would prefer that the people I love not inject a poison anywhere in their body – especially so close to their brain.

Wrinkles develop because the brain is telling the body it is aging and thus, is making physical changes in preparation for aging. Wrinkles also develop due to diet, sun, exercise, stress, and drug or alcohol use. None of us escapes wrinkles.

Yet, those who live a life where they are able to focus on what’s important and filter out what’s not, generally also appear to be more at peace. It’s fairly easy to see the telltale signs of tension in anyone’s face: a clenched jaw, squinty eyes, wrinkled forehead, pursed lips.

Thousands of clients at Brain State Technologies® have reported that after brain training, their image of themselves changed significantly. They see themselves as not only more mentally and emotionally healthy, but also as physically healthy and more attractive. They are able to relax and view themselves from inside-to-outside, instead of outside-in. Happiness shows. And it emanates to the world around us. I see the transformation each day.

As if the lifestyle benefits are not enough, the beauty benefits of a balanced brain go far beyond what Botox targets. Facial muscles relax, eyes brighten and skin is illuminated. Your joy shows and others are attracted to your sense of well-being.

Author's Bio: 

Lee Gerdes, Founder and CEO of Brain State Technologies®, is the creator of the cutting edge technology Brainwave Optimization with Real-Time Balancing™, which is transforming lives all over the world.

As the author of Limitless You: The Infinite Possibilities of a Balanced Brain, published in 2009 by Namaste Publishing and now in soft cover, Lee's work emanates from a combination of his interests in how the brain works and its effect on mind, body, and spirit, coupled with his personal experience of trauma in the form of a violent assault in 1992.

This effort has now evolved into the neuro-technology known as Brainwave Optimization™, which is produced and distributed by Brain State Technologies®, with nearly 200 affiliate offices in 18 countries worldwide serving over 50,000 clients.

As a result of this trauma, in 2000 Lee began working with his own brain to relieve post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). His success in overcoming the effects of trauma led him to dedicate his life to understanding neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change itself) and how the breakthrough insights of neuroscience can be applied to improve peoples’ lives. His work is daily proof that by optimizing our brain, we can optimize our entire life, empowering us to "at last be the limitless individuals we were born to be."
