Visualisation of Dodow's effects
Its all about imagination
According to a study conducted in New Zealand on 146 students, if you give soda to someone while making him believe it is alcohol, after a couple glasses he will probably have the same reaction as if he had really drank alcohol. Not only will he start to stagger and become more sociable, but he will also have memory problems.
Take 2 groups of students and pretend to mesure the quality of their sleep. Tell the students of the 1st group that they've slept well, and the 2nd group that they've slept badly: the 1st group will have a much better performance than the 2nd one on the same exam.
Placebo, you say? Not quite. In reality, it is possible to impact our organism, our health, our cognitive abilities and behaviour thanks to suggestions.
From those experiments, the psychologist and pharmacist Emile Coué developed his famous "Coué Method" in 1926. He was able to improve the health of thousands of patients. Tell the brain to fall asleep, and it'll do it!
In practical terms, with Dodow
The first thing to do is to understand Dodow's impact on your organism. During the first uses, read the explanation note within the pamphlet before falling asleep.
A disruption of the autonomous nervous system is at the root of a vast majority of sleeping problems. When it is disrupted (in an alert state), neurotransmitters like noradrenaline send signals to your brain to keep it awake.
With Dodow, you will restore balance to your autonomous nervous system by stimulatng the baroreflex, a physiological mechanism that can be stimulated by slow and regular breathing (6 breaths per minute being the optimal rythm).
After 8 minutes, you will be in a relaxed state: your metabolism will have slowed down, and the secretion of neurotransmitters will have stopped. Your body will be completely relaxed and you will be much less receptive to your thoughts and ambient noises. Sleep isn't far away..."
- Mental programming
Then, don't hesitate to learn the short text hereafter (or to write one that suits you) and repeat it every night before going to sleep.
« By slowing my breathing progressively, my body will relax, my metabolism will slow down and the sleep hormones will be released. I will progressively detach myself from my thoughts and immerse myself into deep sleep little by little. »
