    Thank you for your thorough review of Holosync.
    One of my cousins is currently using Holosync and she swears by it. I am curious about this program, although I’m not a strong advocate of meditation, being brought up with the notion that meditation can both be helpful and dangerous to the mind.
    I still have my doubts since I’m not sure how you can explain this scientifically. Is there some hypothesis at least to explain why some persons have such side effects? As for the Zen 12 program, is there no risk for a user to have similar side effects?

    • Hey Princila,

      You are very right about meditation being both a great and dangerous tool at the same time.

      And the idea behind this notion is, it is good for your mind and spirit if you know how to work it out right. There are certain things, or criteria if you will, that you should follow as you meditate. They are based on certain principles that cooperate with the laws of thought and spirit.

      If you don’t get properly instructed on how to do your meditation the right way, you are bound to suffer the side effects of not keeping in line with the principles.

      But if you are sure to obey all of them, you are going to reap the refreshing benefits of it.

      Again, it depends on what kind of meditation you are doing. There are so many types out there. The Buddhist, Hindu, yoga, Christian and even Muslim meditation, which are all different and which give different results.

      You just have to know what you are on, and why.

      I hope I have put all your worries about meditation to rest.

      Now to zen 12, this is just a meditation aid that helps you reap more benefits of meditation by taking your mind into deep states of meditation that you see on experienced meditators.

      Without aids like these, it is very hard to ever get substantial amount of results within your first days, months or even years of mmeditating, based on your mind and other factors.

      But there are other aids like holosync that come with strong effects that some people’s minds can’t hold. I think they use advanced wave frequencies that alter the state of the mind in a huge way, more than the standard measure, that overpowers it, and thus cause the side effects.

      That is why I recommend using zen 12.

      Zen 12, specifically, doesn’t have any side effects. I did my research and didn’t see any complaint on it. I also use it and have found it to be great over the time I have been on it.

      Long story short, if you know the kind of meditation you are doing and how it should be properly done, zen 12 will help you get quicker calming effects and get the fruits of your effort within a short time.

    I had no idea stuff like this even existed. This was easy to read, and I’m glad I learned about this today! The Zen 12 sounds very interesting, and I’m definitely going to check it out. I think mediation is a wonderful practice for stress relief, especially with all the different inputs of information that we are exposed too today.

    • That’s right Arol,

      Meditation sure is a great way to put off the tension.

      And zen 12 hastens the stress relief by hiking the state of your mind to enjoy these benefits much faster.

      Do check it out. You are going to love it. 🙂

    It’s a good thing that you have identified all of the negative effects of this program. I have always thought that audio meditation products such as this one, is completely harmless.

    But I’m guessing that most people are okay with this program and only a handful will experience the side effects? Or is this a program that every beginner should completely avoid?

    Great review!

    • Hey Farhan,

      Holosync is a great program and there are many people who are getting pretty wonderful results with it. And based on my research, they are those who have meditated before.

      The thing is holosync brings side effects because they give deep waves in the beginning of the tracks which don’t start with where the average brain waves start from.

      That is why I say they are advanced, and newbies should try to avoid them. It is much safer and convenient to use zen 12 as a newbie because the wave frequencies used in it work best for starters, not to mention the guided meditation.

      In summary, holosync is great but I advise newbies not to get it as their first program.

    Hi Dave,
    So what does the zen 12 meditation program use differently that does not cause these symptoms?

    The look to me to be close to the same product. Zen 12 is quite a bit cheeper, so being a rookie at meditating I would go for the least expensive one.

    I personally feel that meditation is, removing yourself from all distractions and creating a peaceful state of mind. However, some people might need assistance to get to that state. That must be where zen 12 falls in to place.

    The side effects generated by the Holosync program is concerning though. Some sort of negative energy coming from it.

    Hi Dave,

    I have seen somethings kind of like this before that weren’t really focused on meditation and they recommend some different brands of headphones that transmitted the waves more clearly. Since Holosync is dependent on the waves created to changes the levels your brainwaves are on, do they recommend using a certain type of headphones?

    • They sure do,

      Stereo headphones are the best. If you don’t have those, you can use earphones that have covered a huge part of your ears. You can also use ear buds.

    I have just purchased a program with an a.m. and a p.m. meditation, each lasting only 15 minutes. I have only used it once and it felt great. With such a short meditation, would the danger of negative side effects be less than for longer-lasting meditations?

    • Hey Barb,

      The problem is not how long the program lasts, it is how it has been designed, the method of entrainment it uses.

      Something like holosync has used advanced brainwaves which may alter the brain a little too much and bring side effects to the listener. This doesn’t take into account how long the tracks take.

      As far as it uses those ueneven waves, it is still risky.

      The whole brainwave entrainment method of holosync is not good for everyone as each track, even the shortest ones have the advanced wave frequencies which pose the risk of getting the listed side effects.

      If I were you, I wouldn’t test the waters.

      It would be better to work with zen 12 as it is safe and good for everyone than to risk your health with the tracks you just bought.

      It is better to be safe than to be sorry.

      I hope this helps. 🙂

    Nice review mate. I used Holosync for a few months but I’ve experienced some of the side effects. I’ve had emotional numbness, and a general feeling of disconnection from everything. It made me way more calm, but not in a nice, present way. More of a lifeless way. It’s been a month since I’ve stopped and it’s gotten a decent amount better but it’s surprised me how long it’s taken! Any idea if my brain will return completely to normal or any clues on how to speed up the process? Thank you!

    • Hey Joel,

      I am so sorry to hear the kind of side effects you are getting with holosync.

      You sure can get your brain back to normal.

      If you really want to know how you can get your brain back to the way it was, I would suggest you see a doctor because you never to what extent the advanced brainwave frequencies of holosync have affected you.

      They may be mild or serious. So I would rather you get medical attention than use other home remedies which may make the situation worse or try to treat something that isn’t there.

      Professional medication is the best.

      But for starters, you can try to avoid using the system completely.

      I hope to hear from you very soon mate.

      Please do let me know how things go for you.

    Hi, I’ve just purchased a program by Sonia Ricotti (the Unsinkable Bounce Back) and she uses two 12 min Holosync sessions (AM & PM) to boost up the brain vibrations to 500. One is supposed to use them for at least 21 days. Do you know anything about these custom-created sessions?

    • Hey Carmen,

      I don’t know much about them, but I would advise you to be super careful as you plan to use them. They might be safe or dangerous.

      I recommend contacting the support team of the program to confirm of their safety and then get a few user reviews for the program to confirm if they will be good for you.

      Hope this helps. 🙂
