I have been doing neurofeedback for over 16 years; I have studied and consult with the masters, and I am still learning how to get yet faster and more extensive results more of the time....keeping in mind that no one healing modality works for everyone, all the time, without qualification. I own and use three QEEG brain mappers and 8 different neurofeedback (NFB) training units because each system has it's unique strengths and limitations when matched up to each uniquely different client's brain I see. Gerde's "one size fits all" system is dumbed down to an extent that would make any sincere professional blanch. It does have, in it's "favor", a powerful marketing system driving it, and not much else.I wish i had a dollar for every horror story I hear from Gerde's clients and practitioners who spent all kinds of money and experienced marginal results. Neurofeedback, when offered by a trained and experienced practitioner, can produce life-changing results, especially for head injuries, ADHD, learning disorders, many mood disorders, cognitive decline due to aging, and so on. It is equally true that the mark of a competent NFB provider is he/she is familiar with the conditions that slow down or even prevent success with NFB, like untreated food allergies, toxic exposures, medical conditions like thyroid problems (to name one) or even psychological problems that respond best to a skillful mix of NFB and psychotherapy. Do your homework, shop around before you let Lee Gerdes sell you on his simplistic system presented as the state of the art.

In order to learn about this technique you'll need to go to someone who offers it. This books is nothing more than an advertisement for the technique. The people who are giving it 5 stars must be relatives or colleagues of the author. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Format: Paperback
Buyer beware--There is potential danger here. The author is not a licensed health care professional or neuroscientist, but an entrepreneur. This work is very much an infomercial that encourages members of the public to entrust their brains to someone who in many cases is unlicensed. Anyone looking for neurofeedback to improve brain function (especially with ADD/ADHD, head injuries, or psychological problems) should look to a person who is a licensed health care professional with further specialty training. Research which I have published entitled First Do No Harm documents that when neurofeedback is improperly done it can cause harm. Do not allow just anyone to put electrodes on your head and play with your brain. I have personally seen patients who have been significantly harmed by unqualified persons. Remember that many persons posting positive reviews of this book may well be affiliates of the author, who are hoping to make money through referrals. Check carefully that someone advertising neurofeedback and work in retraining your brain meets standards of practice which have been established by the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research at isnr.org. In the hands of someone qualified, EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) can be extremely helpful.

Save yourself the time and the money. I felt ripped off that the title and the content are not harmonized. Maybe the author needs more "brain training" to determine that his samples are lacking and his chapters are repetitive. Each chapter kept regurgitating the same message over and over again. It's a self-promotion book and nothing more. Take a pass!

Format: Hardcover
Gerdes' does a beautiful job explaining how our brain creates energetic imbalances based on life experiences and how those imbalances may manifest in our present day mental/physical/emotional experiences. In addition to explaining the way the brain works, he gives the world a clear first introduction to his technology Brain State Conditioning. The quantum physics based technology would be difficult to understand in full without a book to explain the concepts and I believe it's tremendous value to humanity may be overlooked otherwise. I myself have experienced BSC and noticed tremendous shifts in my day to day as a result. From significantly reduced sugar and alcohol cravings, better sleep, improved mind-body coordination, significantly more mental clarity and focus... the list really does go on. As the energy in the brain self balances, new neural pathways are created around a state of brain balance and harmony, or brain homeostasis. This creates a level playing field, or strong foundation from the center core of our being's control unit... the brain. Whether a person is dealing with severe head/brain trauma, mental/emotional abuse, addiction, or simply looking for optimal life performance, I believe BSC is one of the most powerful tools available for healing... and the book shows us how this is possible.

I thought “Limitless You” was a great read, well written and put some complex information into a very interesting and understandable manner. I couldn't put this book down until I finished it.

Lee Gerdes gives an account of his own personal journey to regain his own happiness after a vicious attack left him feeling hopeless.

He also shares the accounts of others who have greatly improved the quality of their lives with the technology he developed to help regain his own life and help his own son through some of the difficulties of young adulthood. His account gave me renewed hope for my own life that I had nearly given up on.

After spending a small fortune and several years of my life on self help books, on-line help programs, doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, sleeping pills, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety prescriptions, this book prompted me to take a look at this company and make an appointment for an initial assessment of my own brain. I looked at the company's website, read the reviews of other clients who had been greatly helped by this technology.

I liked the fact that there have been clinical trials conducted by respected medical facilities and that no one was suggesting drugs that can actually make things feel even worse as was the case with me.

I had ten incredibly relaxing sessions which rid me of the inner static feelings of anxiety that I had felt all of my life. I now feel a mental clarity and calmness that I have enjoyed for several months. I can actually sleep at night without alcohol or sleeping pills.

I highly recommend “Limitless You” and Brain State Technologies to anyone who seeks a more relaxed and happy life. If more conventional processes work for you, that's wonderful. I tried this approach when nothing else helped. I couldn't be happier with the results that I experienced in just a few days..
