Until recently, insomnia was studied from a behavioral perspective, but as this problem grows, new research and insights have been discovered. Even the Centers for Disease control has weighed in, calling lack of sleep a public health problem. Insomnia can disrupt daily life by causing irritability, exhaustion, tiredness, and difficulty staying focused. If being tired all of the time isn’t bad enough, this affliction is also believed to be a risk factor for other diseases.
Right now, 10-15% of the GLOBAL population is affected by recurring insomnia.
We underestimate the importance of sleep. While there is no magic number for sleep duration, eight hours is a good target for an adult. During the first four hours of sleep, your body restores itself. Then it takes an additional four hours of sleep for your brain to restore itself. Good sleep is a lot easier to accomplish if your brain is working efficiently.
But why is this? What is going on with the brainwave patterns? Recent studies suggest that in cases of insomnia, the brain is unable to process information properly due to cortical hyperarousal. This creates abnormal brainwave patterns.
Clinical studies have shown neurofeedback to be an effective, drugless, natural approach to insomnia, especially for people who have struggled for years. If you are ready to be able to fall asleep and stay asleep, for improved energy, health and wellbeing, neurofeedback is a powerful tool for helping people fall asleep and stay asleep.
