Research and Research Contributions Regarding the Patented 'Taylor Method'

also known as Whole Brain® InnerTalk® Subliminal Technology

Under the direction of Dr. Jose Salvador Hernandez Gonzalez and on behalf of the Department of Social Security for Mexico, 25 patients were exposed to both video and audio Freedom From Dental Anxiety tapes for thirty minutes prior to treatment and thirty minutes during treatment. The conclusion:

"the use of InnerTalk® before an integral odontologic treatment is 100% effective, reducing patient's anxiety and the noise made by the high speed hand piece used in this type of work, and furthermore, reducing the pain suffered by comparison to previous experience." The report goes on to recommend InnerTalk®: "Therefore it is convenient to promote, among Dental Surgeons, the use of InnerTalk® to improve their patients comfort and achieve a better collaboration to treatments. In the same way, use will change the Estomologist image (feared for so many years).

Combining Whole Brain® InnerTalk® Weight Loss audio and video with Echo-Talk audio and a special nutritional program developed and marketed by Oxyfresh International, Dr. Harbans S. Saran, a biochemical geneticist) of the University of California at Irvine conducted a ninety day weight loss study. Dr. Saran coached each subject to visualize their clear goal in terms of body fitness and reviewed progress weekly. Saran reported that 90% of the subjects (10 men and 15 women) lost significant weight.

Research carried out under the supervision of Dr. Diaz Lopez, at the Instituto Mexicano Del Seguro Social. 75% of the participants stopped smoking.

Under the direction of Maurice P. Shuman, Jr., General Director Special Programs of Instruction, a Pilot Study was conducted by Duval County Public School System at the Pre-trial Detention Center in Jacksonville, FL. Twenty two incarcerated juveniles participated in a study program using Progressive Awareness Research tapes designed to assist in preparation for GED examination. "The GED final test results show that 18 students passed the full GED examination." A follow up study is currently underway in the same facility.

Thomas Plant, faculty member of Stanford University and Director of the mental health services for the Children's Health Council, together with Michael DiGregorio and Gerdenio Manuel of Santa Clara University, evaluated the effect of Whole Brain® on test anxiety in a double blind experiment. The statistical data indicated significance supporting the hypothesis that Whole Brain® subliminal technology could be an effective tool in lowering test anxiety.

Kim Roche of Phoenix University studied the effect of Whole Brain® with children diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder in a double blind experiment. Her findings indicated a significantly positive effect.

Diana Ashley at the University Of Southern California studied the effect of subliminally presented reinforced stimuli on factual material using the Taylor's Mirrored Imaging Processing (MIP) model in a double blind experiment. Her conclusion found a significant increase in learning among students in the experimental group.

A study carried out by Prof. Pelka of Munich University in Germany on a Whole Brain® tape for weight loss, showed average weight losses of 13 pounds in subjects who used the program.

(Reported in 1992-1993) The findings from a longitudinal study on the Whole Brain® program for Cancer showed that 43% of the patients who used the program, went into remission. For the patients who had passed away, the average life span beyond the original prognosis was significantly extended.

Experimental psychologist, Julian Isaacs, investigated the effects of the following Whole Brain® programs; "No More Procrastination", "Time Management", "Confidence Power", "Freedom From Stress", "Positive Relationships", "I Am Assertive", and "High Self Esteem." After three studies, it was concluded that the programs produced significant positive results that were verifiable.

A double blind study conducted by Prof. Peter Kruse at Bremen University in Germany, using a specially created Whole Brain® program, strongly demonstrated the influence of the program on decision making. Kruse said, "the Taylor Method" works!

A double blind study was carried out at Weber State University on the effects of the Whole Brain® program "Freedom From Stress." The psychological test results showed a significant decrease in stress.

In a double blind study carried out at Colorado State University, it was found that using the Whole Brain® program "Freedom From Depression" for more than 17 hours, led to a significant decrease on the Beck Depression scale. This study not only shows the effectiveness of the Whole Brain® program, but also indicated that the effectiveness of the programs were dosage related.

Cosmetic Surgeon, R. Youngblood and surgical staff tested the effect of the Whole Brain® "Pre And Post Operative" tape on 360 patients. They reported a decrease in anesthetic requirements of 32% by volume as compared to a historical control group.

In a double blind study at the Utah State Prison, which was performed by McCusker, Liston and Taylor, the Whole Brain® technology was deemed effective in altering self esteem among inmates. As a result, the Utah State Prison installed and maintains a voluntary tape library for inmates.

Numerous clinical studies with single and multiple subjects have also found effectiveness with Whole Brain® in areas as diverse as anorexia to dyslexia. Additionally, Whole Brain® has been credited by professional coaches for significantly contributing to winning sports events ranging from football championships to National and Olympic judo medals.
