Brainwave Optimization does not treat (or diagnose) specific diseases. The concept of "treatment" is related to the biomedical model of homeostasis. Homeostasis means stability through constancy, and it refers to the idea that physiological systems maintain their stability by achieving a constant and unchanging internal state. Homeostasis is the basis for the strategy of using medicines or surgeries to correct dysfunctional mechanisms, which may be interfering with the otherwise "healthy" states associated with pre-determined setpoints of constancy. For example, homeostasis implies that medicines may be necessary to correct dysfunctional cardiovascular mechanisms which cause chronic elevations of blood pressure, or to correct dysfunctional neural circuits which cause problematic levels of anxiety.
Rather, Brainwave Optimization aims to help the brain to auto-calibrate its patterns of hemispheric symmetry and spectral power. In contrast to homeostatic therapeutics, Brainwave Optimization is provided to individuals on the basis of allostasis. Allostasis means stability through change, and it refers to the idea that whole organisms maintain their stability (or fitness) by virtue of the brain's role as master regulator of multi-organ system functionality. Change is necessary so that the individual as a whole can fine-tune functioning to meet real, present and anticipated demands.
Brainwave Optimization makes no attempt to "correct" any "dysfunctional" physiological mechanisms or circuits. Rather, the aim is to allow brainwaves to resonate non-invasively with musical tones, in such a way that the brain can "unstick" itself from dominating patterns, and then itself adjust its own patterns of functioning, on its own terms. From a state of allostatic, neural oscillatory calibration, individuals may find it easier to manage the challenges associated with any variety of health conditions.
