A pilot study with a double blind, placebo controlled, randomized design using our new approach to “debug” the underlying basis of one of the apparent major causes of ADD/ADHD was conducted at a learning center in the San Diego, CA area. Preliminary results from this study are very encouraging. You can see below examples from the initial data from the study.
Academic Fluency Testing – The kids in the study were given academic fluency tests before the first treatment, before the second treatment and three weeks after the second treatment. This testing pattern was designed to allow us to see the differences between the placebo group and the treatment group. This pilot study involved 20 children. 10 initially received the actual treatment while the other 10 received a placebo or sham treatment. This means that they got what looked like the treatment but the WaveMaker Pro device that was used for the study for them had the internal wires disconnected, so it looked like it was working but it wasn’t.
The graph below shows the changes in academic performance for one participant before the first treatment and two weeks later right before the second treatment. This participant was in the group of students who got the actual treatment on the first round. Although all of the academic performance improved there was a huge contrast in the writing fluency. The test gives the student three words and a small picture and the instruction is to write a sentence about the picture that includes the three words.
During the first test, this student could only write one sentence and it wasn’t very legible. During the second test he wrote 11 sentences and they were more legible than the one in the previous test.
With the first test he was in the bottom one percent of writing fluency. In the second test he was now at 52% which placed him right in the middle of normal writing fluency for his age. I asked the director of the Banyan Tree Learning Center if she ever saw this kind of change in two weeks and she said that she had never seen this kind of change even with a full year or tutoring.

These two charts show the results of the Conners ADHD assessments by one of the parents of a child who participated in the study. The first chart shows the results of the assessment before and after the first treatment. This student was in the Placebo group (because of the double blind study design no one new this until after all of the testing and treatings sessions were completed) and it is clear from the results that very little changed.

The second chart shows the dramatic reduction in ADHD symptoms following getting the actual treatment two weeks after having only receive the placebo treatment the at the first session.
This difference is a very good indication that the positive effects of reducing ADD/ADHD symptoms that we are seeing from debugging the TB Miasm are truly coming from the actual treatment with the WaveMaker and are not caused by placebo effect.
