IDosing Update

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

In June, I blogged about a dangerous new way to get high, called I-Dosing.

People can now purchase and download MP3 music files that replicate drug states, using binaural beat technology that manipulates brainwaves with sounds.

This is particularly dangerous for kids and teens, because you can’t test their urine, blood or breath to find out if they’re “using,” and their peers tell them that it’s not dangerous, because it isn’t chemical (completely ignoring the mental/emotional effects of using).

I just found out now that it’s also available as an app on iTunes.

If you have kids, it’s very important that you know what they’re downloading, and from where. Be sure to periodically check your teens computer, music player, cell phone, and now, iTouch or iPhone. Seemingly innocent music files could be harming them now.

To your success,

Warning: New way for kids to get high… over the internet

Monday, July 19th, 2010

I just came across this video about a new trend among teens, called I-Dosing.

I-Dosing allows kids to get high over the internet, using their computer or MP3 player.

They download the MP3 and listen to it through headphones and it induces drug-like effects.

As silly as this sounds, I’m very familiar with this technology.

It’s called binaural beats, and it has been around since the early 70’s. It’s well-established science.

I sometimes use it in my practice and at home, and I actually have two binarual beat machines for my kids (though, they obviously don’t have a “high” setting).

This is definitely something to keep an eye out for. ¬†Even though it’s not “chemical,” this is still very, very dangerous.

Here’s the news clip:

If you have any questions about the technology of it, just ask. I’m quite familiar with it as a therapeutic tool.
