Rebalance Brain for Better Sleep

If you suffer from insomnia, you know what a profound effect it can have on your mood and cognitive abilities. You may have tried medications, with varying degrees of success and perhaps undesirable side effects.
 
There may be a new option on the horizon: A technology called high-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM, for short) is a noninvasive procedure that’s designed to reflect the brain’s frequencies back on itself using musical tones.
 
In a randomized study of 20 people, researchers at the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., had insomnia-sufferers receive 8 to 12 sessions of HIRREM over a three-week period, or receive the standard care.
 
Those receiving the HIRREM treatment experienced a significant improvement in insomnia symptoms. In fact, their scores on standard insomnia tests moved into the “no insomnia” or “sub-threshold insomnia” categories; the benefits persisted over the four-week follow-up period.
 
Meanwhile, the group receiving the standard care didn’t experience any improvement during the initial three weeks. However, when they were later given HIRREM treatments for three weeks, they experienced a nearly identical improvement in symptoms as the first group did. Their improved sleep also lasted for four weeks.
