The Auragen Theta and Gamma brainwave entrainment utilizes flickering light patterns. A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to flashing lights or patterns. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while playing video games, watching TV, looking at strobe lights.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects.
If you experience any of these symptoms, stop using this product immediately and consult a doctor.
