Dave Siever joins the show to talk about audio visual entrainment. We delve deep into audio visual entrainment, its history, the scientific studies behind it, the typical use cases, clinical applications, and of course Dave's history.
Dave Siever, C.E.T., graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in 1978 in Telecommunications. In 1980, he accepted a position at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Dentistry, as a design technologist. He conducted research with Dr. Norman Thomas, an internationally recognized specialist in the area of temporomandibular dysfunction and myofascial pain.
From late 1985 to 1987, Dave provided TMJ consulting services to 5 dentists in the Edmonton area. Over the years, Dave has helped treat approximately 1,500 patients with TMJ and MPD. During this time, Dave realized that many TMJ problems were psychologically-related, prompting him to pursue his interest in biofeedback. This led to the inception of the original D.A.V.I.D. 1 in the spring of 1985, which was used in the Faculty of Arts to help acting students overcome stage fright.
In the time since, Dave has continued developing several audio-visual entrainment (AVE), cranio-electro stimulation (CES), transcranial DC Stimulation (tDCS), and biofeedback devices, with each new development responding to technology changes and market demands. Dave still designs new products related to personal growth and well-being.
Dave served for many years as the chair of the Computer Engineering Advisory Council for the NAIT. He's also a member of ASET, ISNR, and AAPB.

I try to consume about a book a week and that's normal reading, but there are countless numbers of business, self-help, and spiritual books that I want to get to, but don't really have the time. And most of these books really with the exception of that spirituality category are really only worth about two paragraphs of information.
The folks of Blinkist solve this issue for me of just too many books with too little time by really condensing a lot of information into cliff notes.
What they've done is they've made it into 20 pages of information and key takeaway. So I use Blinkist every single day. It allows me to consume at least one book a day, and then some days I get much more done.
Head on over to https://www.blinkist.com/ for you, and you can really try one out yourself.

One of my favorite tools for cognitive enhancement, especially after long plan rides, is Blue Cannatine. The delivery mechanism is unique (buccle troche). It is especially effective for me on improving short-term memory, focus, and verbal fluency. It’s the closest thing that I found to NZT and I think you guys should try it out.

I’ve been fascinated by blood flow restriction training for a very long time. And the guys at Bstrong did some really cool innovations with their technology. I use it just about every day, high reps, low number of sets, a few exercises. And in 20 minutes I have a fantastic workout, which I know is triggering an anabolic response and who doesn’t like that.
