    Awesome, so glad it's helping you! Too bad there isn't an effective, one-size-fits-all therapy for us.

    Yeah, too bad one therapy doesn't just fix all of us!

    I met a woman who is recovering from a traumatic brain injury. We started comparing treatments we do. I told her about the BAUD therapy I've been doing. She told me she uses something called a Mind Alive device. She showed it to me and it looks sort of like a BAUD, but it comes with colored glasses.

    So I checked out the website: http://mindalive.com/
    They seem to make several different devices. Some of them even have electrodes that zap your scalp!

    I'm thinking I will go see the neurotherapist who prescribed this device to the woman I talked to, just to check it out. For one thing, I don't know which device would be right for me. I could make an appointment for some time in January.

    For research purposes, it would be good to look into this option. But it makes me nervous. What if it would work better on me than the BAUD? That would mean I wasted $500. Gulp.

    I just returned the device today. Dr. Lawlis was understanding, and has agreed to give me a full refund.

    I don't think I'm ready to try any other devices just yet. It's too expensive!

    I call him the used car salesman of the fitness world, somewhat affectionately. He is always going on about some new thing, some work out better than others. He is always up for trying new things though so that is fun. I just don't have the budget to keep up!

    I am recovering both financially and physically from the holiday season, so it is taking me longer than expected to be ready to try new things. Whew. On top of that, I am having to re-balance my iodine and thyroid hormone intake. That is taking a while to figure out.

    So basically I'm trying to get to a stable place health-wise and a financial place where I have some extra money to spend on trying new things. I'll let you guys know when I do!
