… also, have any of you actually looked at even just the extracts
thereof that they brag about?

They don't seem to understand what "placebo controlled trial" means.
Hint: it's not placebo controlled if your groups are three variants of
the same protocol, without one that has "did same thing, with zero
stimulation".

Rather, that's an excellent example of how to obtain a placebo effect.

That's obviously flawed "research", something so stupid that I can't
even grant it the benefit of Hanlon's Razor. When purporting to help
people with serious issues by selling them a device, using "research"
that is essentially an outright lie, is absolutely despicable.
