Working with a small team, he quickly built a prototype and began using 40Hz lights at home and observed remarkable results within just a few weeks. Terry and his wife’s doctors noticed outstanding improvement in her condition, and she is now remarkably stable. One of her nurses said, “I’ve been in this business 25 years and I’ve never seen as much language recovery as I’ve seen here”. Her neurologist says that he’s seen virtually no decline over the past year. Terry credits the 40Hz lights for her improvement. He likes to think of 40Hz lights as a vitamin for the brain and keeps a light on his desk at all times. Reactions to 40Hz light therapy are not sudden, but over the course of 6 weeks, users generally report better mood and sleep among other positive effects.
Terry’s team designed BEACON40® to seamlessly fit in with any lifestyle; the lights are about the size of a small speaker. He recommends using 40Hz light therapy for at least one hour each day, every day. Terry hopes that one day there will be 40Hz light in every home and office.
He recognized the important steps families take after receiving a cognitive decline diagnosis. Terry points out that taking care of yourself is crucial. Getting outside in the sunshine for a walk or going on a bike ride can be an immediate mood-booster. He also emphasizes the importance of a routine. Scheduling activities for yourself and your family can provide a sense of coherence and consistency that is beneficial for everyone. A routine can also eliminate stress, especially during unpredictable times.
