Has science finally found a way to make us smarter and still keep our health? Well, some say it has!
Living in such a cutthroat world, where a slight edge in memory and focus can mean a huge difference, as we are constantly on the lookout for new ways to make us smarter, more motivated and driven. This is how we came to something called tDCS, a method scientists think will help us have that extra-fast brain.
So what is tDCS stand for? Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation. The idea behind this enhancement method is that by using a low-level electrical direct current as a brain stimulus, our cognitive powers will increase, including our working memory, concentration and even motivation.
There are numerous studies, and many more are currently conducted, that back this information up. One of the studies even went on to determine what tDCS does for our creativity. The study showed that when our left-prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) gets stimulated using tDCS, we become more creative, we start to think outside-the-box and come up with different usages for ordinary things, which is how the study measured our creativity. Who knew that our true potential could be released by a small amount of electrical current?
tDCS has been so successful with the participants of the study groups that it has been nicknamed an organic nootropic. Afterall, what’s more natural than electricity? - Our brain and body would not operate without electrical current.
However, tDCS differs to traditional nootropics in that you don't swallow a pill or drink an elixir of exotic ingredients. According the numerous studies, tDCS causes no major side-effects. The only recurring side-effect noted by some of the study participants was a tingling sensation at the parts of the skull where the electrodes were placed. But this occurred only while the participants were receiving their tDCS treatment.
Doing tDCS in the comfort of your home (DIY tDCS)
tDCS was such a success within clinical settings that people wanted more. They wanted to be able to apply tDCS in the comfort of their home. Thanks to a little portable tDCS device called TheBrainDriver it is now possible to have your cake and eat it too. Consisting of a battery, electronic circuitry, a headband and 2 electrodes, this little blue box (https://TheBrainDriver.com/) can help you solve that math problem, speed up your learning process and assist you to master that French, German or Japanese. All you need to do is place the electrodes at particular places on your skull (here’s an article that explains further about tDCS electrode placements and montages: (https://thebraindriver.com/pages/tdcs-placement-montage#electrode_positioning_studies) set the current to one of 4 possible power settings, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 mA, (ultra-low electrical currents) and let your brain be stimulated for 20 to 30 minutes per session. For long lasting results, it is important that the sessions are done regularly.
Many of our customers who have tried it, say that it works. As the developer of the tDCS, it has been life-changing for me personally.
So, are you ready to unleash your true potential? Do try it out and let us know what it actually did for you!
We'd love to hear from you!
Have a Positive Day!
