"I have used BAUD as part of a comprehensive intensive outpatient treatment of addictions for the reduction of substance craving in patients with cocaine or cannabis addiction. For the reduction of craving cocaine and cannabis there are no approved medical blockers. In my experience, I have used it on these patients one day a week for the first month to help to obtain the goal of total abstinence. One treatment with BAUD helps patients to reduce the intensity and the frequency of persistent subjective symptoms of cravings for PTSD these substance for about one week or more."

Arnaldo Cruz Igartua MD, Psychiatrist, Board Certified in General and Addiction Psychiatry, Puerto Rico

"I have both seen and experienced amazingly fast results using the BAUD in my work with trauma, chronic fatigue and depression.."

BAUD in the News:
Turning Off PTSD Trauma

It changed me. It was instantaneous; I've never slept so good in my life. It sounds too good to be true, I know. Believe me, when I first heard about it, you have no idea how skeptical I was."

About the BAUD

The BAUD is a novel therapy device designed to safely and quickly stimulate brain plasticity. It was originally developed for improving ADD/ADHD symptoms, and clinical use revealed it to also be effective on most emotional issues, addictive urges, and even chronic pain. FDA-cleared in 2006 as a class II device for adjunct therapy, the BAUD has since been been used in over 400,000 clinical sessions in 18 countries. Its patented technology uses specially designed sound frequencies which the patient listens to while performing a simple mental protocol based on the latest research into accelerating synaptic plasticity.

Emerging research points to maladaptive plasticity as a core problem in trauma, pain and addiction. Neural circuits can become sensitized - essentially "stuck" - in a high volume firing state. Relieving negative feelings or chronic pain becomes very difficult, since this neural state perpetuates the exaggerated feelings, urges or sensations.

How it Works

Brain imaging research is confirming the BAUD's mechanism of action as stimulating plasticity by disrupting reconsolidation of problem circuits, primarily in the limbic system and the amygdala. This acoustical stimulation helps the brain shift neural function back to a normal level, based on its innate ability to self-regulate. The BAUD process enhances the brain's natural neuroplasticity in a rapid and highly targeted way, which produces a safe and effective result. Clients typically see dramatic reduction in problem symptoms after the first 20-minute session. Read article describing how BAUD works

The BAUD has shown effective symptom reduction on three main types of problems:

  • Emotional issues, from severe phobias and PTSD to everyday anxieties. See video
  • Cravings or urges: food cravings, substance abuse, unwanted urges of all types. See video
  • Chronic pain of all types. Read article

    The BAUD protocol is simple and easy to learn for both therapist and client. It combines the use of attentional modulation and BAUD stimulation in a 15 to 20 minute session. A neural shift typically occurs within the session, and the client typically feels significant relief immediately after. Brain function is measurably improved, and has been confirmed by EEG and fMRI imaging. Best of all, positive results are typically long-lasting to permanent.

    The BAUD in Your Practice

    The BAUD is easy to integrate as an adjunct therapy into any type of practice. Psychologists, doctors, psychiatrists, physical therapists and neurotherapists around the world have found the BAUD easy to learn and apply to their patients. It takes just minutes to learn the Basic Protocol. And most clients can learn to self-administer the BAUD as well. Some therapists have multiple BAUDs in the office to service several clients at once. Whether you treat emotional problems, addiction, or pain issues, the BAUD gives you a powerful tool with the technology to help your clients to turn their problems "off" at their source.
