A new paradigm: Switching circuits
Global pandemics, climate change, wars, and turmoil . . . what can we control? We can learn to control our brain's circuits that determine our responses to daily life.
Emotional Brain Training (EBT) will give you simple, proven skills to switch off circuits that cause unwanted responses like anxiety, overreactions, procrastination, and overeating, and activate circuits of optimal health and well-being.
Why does it work? EBT switches the circuits that control our physiology, which control our thoughts, emotions, and behavior. It's a new paradigm in health care - and you can start using it today.
Change your circuit. Change your life.
Welcome to EBT!
Enter the amazing new world of controlling the circuits stored in your emotional brain to control how you experience daily life. Learn how to switch circuits as the easiest and fastest way to transform your life.
EBT goes beyond cognitive methods to use emotions as medicine. Use easy-to-learn emotional techniques to switch off circuits that cause problems. Automatically, you'll arrive at a state of connection ("Brain State 1") in which feelings of compassion, hope, love, and gratitude flow.
Enjoy this new, science-based approach to health and create a life of joy and purpose. Get started today!
The 5 Core Skills of EBT: Switch circuits easily and quickly.
Who can benefit from EBT?
Join a growing community of people who start THRIVING by using EBT to switch circuits and get to Brain State 1, then raising their brain's set point for lasting improvements in health and quality of life.
Move into the new world of neuroscience-based health care, in which patients change their circuits to change their lives. Use EBT to clear your own stress and become certified in the method. Bring EBT to your patients.
"EBT is a gift from science to you."Michael Merzenich, PhD "The Father of Neuroplasticity"
In 2007, health psychologist Laurel Mellin and her colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco, Igor Mitrovic, Lynda Frassetto, and Lindsey Fish, discovered a way to use emotions to clear stress overload and achieve the state of optimal connection, "Brain State 1."
They proposed a new paradigm in health care of rewiring the stress response. Then, during the next 15 years, Mellin and a team of designers, physicians, and therapists joined together with the goal of sharing these tools broadly so more people could raise their set point to create a World at 1. They made EBT tech-based, easier to use, and more effective.
Now, the method is widely available. To use EBT, begin by imagining a world in which everyone had the skills to stop their own suffering and live in joy and purpose. Then, start learning the skills yourself and help create a World at 1.
The benefits last
In a study conducted at UCSF, participants showed improvements 2 years after learning EBT skills.
