Q: Is this a replacement for medical treatment?

A: No. For any serious medical issues you should seek a competent and trusted physician. You should be practicing healthy living if you want to prevent and treat any illness. This ideally means proper nutrition, physical activity, hygiene, rest, plenty of pure water, and a healthy diet according to your body's constitution. These audio sessions are tools intended to be used as a meditative aid, or to be used among other healing methods for an integrative healing approach. ​

Q: Are you a licensed physician?

A: No.

Q: Are you qualified to be doing this?

A: It is difficult to say who is qualified to be doing this. However in my opinion it is required for the individual creating these sessions to be mindful of safety, to have a scientific basis and to be openly transparent.

Q: What is the scientific basis for this?

A: https://www.anthonysommer.com/blog/neural-entrainment

Q: Can you cite your source(s) of information?

A: I do whenever possible, citations may be found in each video description. 

Q: I feel discomfort, is this normal?

A: It is possible for an individual to experience moments of discomfort at times, however it should not be frequent or persistent. If it is you should discontinue use.

Q: How often should I listen to this before I can expect results?

A: This varies per individual. It is suggested to start minimally and observe how you feel before, during, and after. For those who notice benefits you could try once daily and observe any relief or effects it may have and decide from there.

Q: What sets you apart from the rest? Why should we use your channel, when there are so many others that offer similar services?

A: My channel offers only the highest quality material which is based upon science and is focused on safety, effectiveness, transparency and integrity. 

I had seen many channels making absurd claims, with a lack of a scientific basis resulting in videos with supposed effects that are mostly fantasy-based. Some of these channels had content that was detrimental to health, and had abused the faith/trust of naive individuals seeking genuine benefits, regardless of the intent of the creator. I believe that some are genuinely attempting to contribute something positive, but I undoubtedly know that a majority of creators are unfamiliar with scientific literature and are primarily concerned about click-bait and profits. I was frustrated with these channels wasting my time with false promises, and felt that many others were probably experiencing the same issues.

Q: Why can't I hear anything?

Q: I can hear most of the audio, but sound appears to stop at some specific parts in some files, why? 

A: This can be due to a few contributing factors, but the most common may be from the individual's audio device. Rarely, there are some frequencies used which are below the average human hearing range and at times they are used without other background noise, this can also lead to some moments sounding silent.

Q: Is it safe to play these files around pets?

A: Please be mindful of pets; use headphones or set your volume to a low amplitude when using neural entrainment or any other form of sound therapy around them. Carefully observe their reactions to it, and if there is any sign that it is causing a negative effect, you need to use headphones or cease usage immediately. This applies to all sound therapy videos and channels.

Q: Will this work on pets, and/or plants?

A: Some of these will, yes. Instead I recommend searching for keywords on my channel such as "cat", or "plant" for example. These were specifically intended for it's labeled target. Otherwise, do not attempt to play other videos for them.

Q: Should I use headphones or speakers?

A: This varies. Some information is provided below, but it is not a guaranteed way to decide which method is most effective. You may need to try both to determine which is best for you and your intentions.

A: I'm in the process of translating all of my video descriptions into over 60 different languages. If your primary language has not been included please let me know and I will add it.

Q: I requested a video awhile ago, and haven't seen it uploaded yet, what gives? 

​A: I need to upload requests in a fair order and I need to ensure that videos are beneficial before I post them, in some cases this can require extended periods of time.

Q: Do you need any professional assistance?

A: As of this moment I could use help with advertisement (in the right demographic).

Q: Do you use subliminal messages? 

A: In some videos yes, however it will always indicate so in the video description.

Q: I am looking to buy a relatively cheap set of headphones, what do you recommend?

A: (https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/99aff89488ddd6b1/index.html)

For the price, these are my favorite headphones. They are high quality, and are very comfortable for prolonged periods of usage. *I am in no way affiliated with Audio Technica*

Q: My favorite session is no longer available, why?

A: I have removed some videos that I am not entirely satisfied with. I have specifically written each down in order to recreate them with improvements and re-upload them. Some copies of removed videos have been added to the Mega account until the new versions are uploaded on YouTube.

Since August 1st of 2018, YouTube has decided that I have used "Duplicate" material, which means at some point I have unknowingly used copyrighted visual works. In response to this, I needed to temporarily remove it and re-upload with new imagery. 

Q: When using your water structuring videos do we have to play the entire session to receive benefits? 

A: They should be used for 25-30 minutes at minimum (for most sizes of containers, including a bath tub). 

Q: Can I use multiple videos on my water or will that cancel out the effects of the first video? 

A: It will not have a negative effect to use different water structuring videos on the same water, but you may prefer to keep it separate, because it's structure will change. For example you could have a jug of 432 HZ water, OM water, etc.. ready for whichever you prefer to drink.
