Defining the parameters of brainwaves:
Beta 12-25hz –focus and concentration
Alpha 8-12hz – relaxation, mind clearing
Theta 4-8 Hz – creativity, imagery
There were 3 research trials
1st without the Pendant, to establish baseline. Then with eyes open with the MegaChi Pendant, and then with eyes closed with the MegaChi Pendant. This test parameter is important, as it established the subject screening their environment.
We first looked at what is normal, what the brain waves were like with eyes closed: There was a significant amount of alpha, some beta and some theta.
Then we looked at change with eyes open: Theta and alpha and beta went down.
We then looked at the brain waves when the test subject held the Megachi Pendant. With the Rhodium Pendant Theta and Alpha went up, Beta went down.
This indicates a slight increase in creativity, and somewhat more stress release and relaxation.
In the 2nd study the parameters were as follows: 1st the subject was without the MegaChi Pendant, to establish baseline. Baseline was normal brainwaves with slight Theta, with eyes open. With eyes closed there was significant increase in alpha, with increase in beta and some theta.
Once again the subject held the MegaChi Pendant, and we tested the subject with eyes open with the Megachi Pendant, and then with eyes closed.
We observed with the gold MegaChi Pendant that there was significant increase in alpha, and significant increase in Theta. The beta remained constant.
With the Rhodium MegaChi Pendant, there was a highly significant increase in Alpha, and some increase in delta, and slight increase in beta.
By looking at both graphs of Eyes Open of the subject holding the MegaChi Rhodium Pendant together, there was a consistent significant increase in creativity and in relaxation or stress release.
With eyes closed there was a highly significant increase in relaxation,
and some increase in creativity, and less increase in focus and concentration.
In the waking state or with eyes open, there was a significant increase in the creative function.
There were significant amounts of stress release or relaxation as well as increase in creativity. We observed little or no increase in the beta brainwaves, which can indicate focus or concentration, which was interesting, as the increase in the beta brainwave, can also indicate higher levels of stress.
In repeat studies we had very similar results. So the results seem to be reliable.
With the gold MegaChi Pendant there was more sustained alpha and theta, and less beta.
With eyes open, the subject indicated more creativity or theta, and again more relaxation/stress release or alpha.
The Rhodium MegaChi Pendant brainwave patterns, indicated being more relaxing than the gold.
The study was done over 3 trials, over a period of 5 months, and the results were reliable in that they show similar findings each time.
We concluded that the MegaChi Pendant significantly increases ability to meditate, and release stress or relax with eyes closed. In the waking state the MegaChi Pendant increases the ability to release stress, and relax, as well as the subject being much more creative, and with increased ability for problem solving.
