Luc graduated from McGill University, Montréal, Québec with B.Sc. (Biology, Electronic), and a D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery). He worked in a private dental practice from 1983 to 1992, and started offering IT consulting services in 1983. He is a long time technology enthusiast and founder JLP Consultants, to service large corporate clients such as KPMG Peat Marwick, Fannie Mae (Federal National Mortgage Association), Chase Manhattan Bank foreign trade division (Hong Kong), and Warner Lambert. Over the past 38 years Luc has been working as an independent consultant in technology. He is an expert developer of software for desktop, web and mobile applications as well as a gifted integrator and designer of electronic and robotic hardware of all kind.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Luc is continuing education numerous certifications temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD). TMJD is an umbrella term covering pain and dysfunction of the muscles of mastication and the temporomandibular joints. The most important feature is pain, followed by restricted mandibular movement, and noises from the temporomandibular joints during jaw movement. Although TMJD is not life-threatening, it can be detrimental to quality of life; this is because the symptoms can become chronic and difficult to manage. Examples include: headache, facial pain, migraine, tension headache, myofascial pain, pain elsewhere, such as the teeth or neck, diminished auditory acuity, etc…
Physiotherapy for TMJD may include the use of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which may override pain by stimulation of superficial nerve fibers and lead to pain reduction which extends after the time where the TENS is being actually being applied, possibly due to release of endorphins. Others recommend the use of ultrasound, theorized to produce tissue heating, alter blood flow and metabolic activity at a level that is deeper than possible with surface heat applications. There is tentative evidence that low level laser therapy may help with pain.
Relaxation techniques include progressive muscle relaxation and meditation. It has been suggested that TMJD involves increased sensitivity to external stimuli leading to an increased sympathetic response with cardiovascular and respiratory alterations. Relaxation techniques cause reduced sympathetic activity, including muscle relaxation and reducing sensitivity to external stimuli, and provoke a general sense of well being and reduced anxiety.
September 25th of 2013, Luc suffered a massive stroke that let him with an aphasia condition. Due to loss of blood flow or damaged tissue, sustained during the injury aphasia may become permanent. In a way it was good to be here because I received the best medical attention I could ever have. I had a long way to recover but I managed to improve a lot. I just have an aphasia condition that does not allow me to speak, I can speak words and make myself understand by using the computer, and the good thing is that I did not lose my abilities.
Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, activity, song, or video to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. Luc has been in touch since that time and for the past years has been discussing a method of helping people that control meditation may significantly reduce stress, anxiety, depression, COVID-19, HIV, TMJD, aphasia, ADHD, cancer, and pain; and enhance peace, perception, self-concept, and well-being.
First, for the practice to be successful, one should dedicate the practice, and set out the goal of the meditation session. One may decide to either practice mindfulness of breathing while seated or standing or lying down or walking, or to alternate seated, standing, lying down and walking meditation. Then one may concentrate on the breath going through one’s nose: the pressure in the nostrils on each inhalation, and the feeling of the breath moving along the upper lip on each exhalation.
Scientifically Demonstrated Benefits
Meditators experienced in focused attention meditation showed a decrease in habitual responding recommends practice of 20 minutes twice per day, may illustrate a lessening of emotionally reactive and automatic responding behavior. It has been scientifically demonstrated that mindfulness of breathing enhances connectivity in the brain. The practice of focusing one’s attention changes the brain in ways to improve that ability over time; the brain grows in response to meditation. That practice of mindfulness meditation for two to six months by people undergoing long-term psychiatric or medical therapy could produce small improvements in anxiety, pain, or depression. A scientific statement that meditation may be a reasonable adjunct practice to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, with the qualification that meditation needs to be better defined in higher-quality clinical research of these disorders.
Deep Meditation System
First Luc researched the scientific principles behind available biofeedback technologies, the ways to design and build the actual sensors and then the vast array of commercially available medical sensor that were waiting to be integrated in a comprehensive solution. Hardware and software solution that uses various biosensors (EEG, ECG, EKG, TENS, EMS, pulse, skin resistance, skin temperature, dissolved blood oxygen, etc.) to facilitate deep meditation in patients. We did the preliminary research, tested various types of sensors to find the solution yielding the best results, constructed proof-of-concept prototypes, and planned production prototypes. 2005 – Meditation EEG, and 2015 – Meditation Glasses LED.
That product will have multiple versions that can be sold to consumers and health professionals alike. This control meditation may significantly reduce stress, anxiety, depression, COVID-19, HIV, TMJD, aphasia, ADHD, cancer, pain, etc… Enhance peace, perception, self-concept, and well-being.
