This pilot study included participants with pain resulting from motor vehicle accidents, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia and temporal mandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).
The participants measured pain intensity by keeping a daily pain level diary using the 10 cm visual analogue scale (VAS)...To measure depression and general psychological distress, participants filled out the Beck Depression Scale (once before treatment and once again two months into treatment). LightSoundRelaxationSuperstore/" title="mind machine">mind machine was used. Treatment continued for three months, with the VAS being recorded daily and Beck measures being taken bi-monthly. Treatment then ended and post treatment measures were taken.
Improvements in pain ratings were significant after two months of treatment, t(9)=4.08, p<0.005...Improvements in depression were also significant after two months, t(3)=2.51, p<0.05, with a mean changing from 16.0 +/-10.13 to 10.25 +/-11.32. What this means is that pain fell 40% and the entire group average for depression fell from mild depression to no depression at all.
These results prompted Mr. Siever to say, "We were excited at the outcomes of our pain studies...There are no reported side-effects and it can be used with almost everyone."
Michael Landgraf, co-operator of Mindmachines.com and publisher of the AVS Journal, adds, "Recently I had an outpatient medical procedure that turned out to be very unpleasant. Two weeks later I tweaked my left leg while doing some heavy lifting. Both experiences were painful, and I was aggravated about having to deal with it. Delight Pro to help overcome my negative thoughts and those painful sensations...With or without pain meds, my physician estimated three weeks for recovery...Without augmenting my daily use of the Delight Pro with painkillers, I experienced a gradual decrease in throbbing and discomfort, which enabled me to get much needed sleep.
