Immune Function: Your state of mind has a direct effect on your immune system
Positive mood associated with activity in the left prefrontal lobe of the brain signficantly enhances immune response. Furthermore, Michael Eaglemeare reports on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/electroherbalism/message/1555 that the frequency 263.1hz stimulates the left prefrontal lobe. I’ve tested this and it appears to work a little better at 236.11hz so I am inserting the following in my F100 programs:
repeat 5 #try 5 minutes a day
pulse 64 75
converge 0 0 #use exact frequency
For FSCAN users this means use 263.11hz with a square wave, positive offset. Eaglemeare recommends no more than five volts, so use the five volt port on an FSCAN2.

Considerable evidence exists to support an association between psychological states and immune function. However, the mechanisms by which such states are instantiated in the brain and influence the immune system are poorly understood. The present study investigated relations among physiological measures of affective style, psychological well being, and immune function. Negative and positive affect were elicited by using an autobiographical writing task. Electroencephalography and affect-modulated eye-blink startle were used to measure trait and state negative affect. Participants were vaccinated for influenza, and antibody titers after the vaccine were assayed to provide an in vivo measure of immune function. Higher levels of right-prefrontal electroencephalographic activation and greater magnitude of the startle reflex reliably predicted poorer immune response. These data support the hypothesis that individuals characterized by a more negative affective style mount a weaker immune response and therefore may be at greater risk for illness than those with a more positive affective style.
