What would you do to feel good and get a better night's sleep?

Difficulty falling or staying asleep is a common problem. About half of Americans report sleep difficulty at least occasionally, according to National Sleep Foundation surveys. These woes - called insomnia by doctors - have far-reaching effects: a negative impact on concentration, productivity and mood. Most of us don't know much about sleep, not even our own and to make it worst ---- sleep problems have a profound effect on our sleeping and waking life.

Fully portable, built in Pulsed Electro Magnetic coil. Just pop it under your pillow. No messy wires. Sleep cycle runs automatically - Not to be confused with the white noise generator of the same name: Sleep Mate™.

In this paper the response characteristic of the nerve fiber to the modulation magnetic field induction is studied by using the method of numeric simulation. It is found that the nerve fiber is sensitive to the low frequency modulated signal but not to the high frequency carrier wave. A simulative EEG signal generator is developed according to the change of EEG rhythm during the sleep. The simulative EEG square wave is modulated by high-frequency magnetic impulse. The modulation magnetic field is coupled into the rabbit's brain to study the influence of magnetic stimulation on the discharge of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) {as opposed to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), precursor of serotonin} nerve cell. The experiment results demonstrate that discharge frequency of median raphe nuclei related to sleep changes significantly and the discharge becomes slow, which shows that magnetic stimulation can inhibit electrical activity of 5-HT nerve cell and provide a new way to improve insomnia.

The treatment of chronic psychophysiological insomnia presents a challenge that has not been met using currently available pharmacotherapy. Low energy emission therapy (LEET) has been developed as a potential alternative therapy for this disorder. LEET consists of amplitude-modulated electromagnetic fields delivered intrabuccally by means of an electrically conducting mouthpiece in direct contact with the oral mucosa. The effect of LEET on chronic psychophysiological insomnia was assessed with polysomnography (PSG) and sleep rating forms on a total of 106 patients at two different centers. Active or inactive LEET was administered for 20 minutes in late afternoon three times a week for a total of 12 treatments. Primary efficacy endpoints evaluating the results were changes from baseline in PSG-assessed total sleep time (TST) and sleep latency (SL). Secondary endpoints were changes in sleep efficiency (SE), sleep stages, and reports by the subjects of SL and TST. There was a significant increase in TST as assessed by PSG between baseline and post-treatment values for the active treatment group (76.0 +/- 11.1 minutes, p = 0.0001). The increase for the inactive treatment group was not statistically significant. The TST improvement was significantly greater for the active group when compared to the inactive group (adjusted for baseline TST; p = 0.020. R1 = 0.20). There was a significant decrease in SL as assessed by PSG between baseline and post-treatment values for the active treatment group (-21.6 +/- 5.9 minutes, p = 0.0006), whereas the decrease noted for the inactive treatment group was not statistically significant. The difference in SL decrease between the two treatment groups was marginally significant (adjusted for baseline SL and center, p = 0.068, R2 = 0.60). The number of sleep cycles per night increased by 30% after active treatment (p = 0.0001) but was unchanged following inactive treatment. Subjects did not experience rebound insomnia, and there were no significant side effects. The data presented in this report indicate that LEET administered for 20 minutes three times a week increased TST and reduced SL in chronic psychophysiological insomnia. LEET is safe and well tolerated and it effectively improved the sleep of chronic insomniacs given 12 treatments over a 4-week period by increasing the number of sleep cycles without altering the percentage of the various sleep stages during the night. The therapeutic action of LEET differs from that of currently available drug therapies in that the sleep pattern noted in insomniacs following LEET treatment more closely resembles nocturnal physiological sleep. This novel treatment may offer an attractive alternative therapy for chronic insomnia.

The sleep inducing effect of a 15 min treatment with either an active or an inactive Low Energy Emission Therapy (LEET) device emitting amplitude-modulated electromagnetic (EM) fields was investigated in a double-blind cross-over study performed on 52 healthy subjects. All subjects were exposed to both active and inactive LEET treatment sessions, with an interval of at least 1 week between the two sessions. LEET consists of 27.12 MHz amplitude-modulated (sine wave) EM fields emitted intrabuccally by means of an electrically conducting mouthpiece in direct contact with the oral mucosa. The estimated local peak SAR is less than 10 W/kg in the oral mucosa and 0.1 to 100 mW/kg in brain tissue. No appreciable sensation is experienced during treatment, and subjects are therefore unable to tell whether they are receiving an active or an inactive treatment. In this study the active treatment consisted of EM fields intermittently amplitude-modulated (sine wave) at 42.7 Hz for 3 s followed by a pause of 1 s during which no EM fields were emitted. During the inactive treatment no EM fields were emitted. Baseline EEGs were obtained and 15 min post-treatment EEGs were recorded and analyzed according to the Loomis classification. A significant decrease (paired t test) in sleep latency to stage B2 (-1.78 +/- 5.57 min, P = 0.013), and an increase in the total duration of stage B2 (1.15 +/- 2.47 min, P = 0.0008) were observed on active treatment as compared with inactive treatment.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Forty two workers underwent examinations under clinical conditions. The workers were affected by the magnetic field of intensities ranging between 112-190 Gauss, depending on the workplace. They underwent internal, ophthalmological, psychological, psychiatric and analytical examinations and the health status of those exposed was compared to that of twenty controls. Most subjects, mainly those of long length of employment in e-m fields exposure, exhibited nonspecific abdominal pains, general weakness, insomnia, increased thirst and conjunctivitis.

Seventy-five percent of the patients had a clinically significant antidepressant response after rTMS, and 50% had sustained response at 2-month follow-up. Comparable improvements were seen in anxiety, hostility, and insomnia, but only minimal improvement in PTSD symptoms. Left frontal cortical rTMS may have promise for treating depression in PTSD, but there may be a dissociation between treating mood and treating core PTSD symptoms (about 100 tms/rtms studies at rTMS/TMS).

Sleep a Brief introduction

Until the 1950s, most people thought of sleep as a passive, dormant part of our daily lives. We now know that our brains are very active during sleep. Moreover, sleep affects our daily functioning and our physical and mental health in many ways that we are just beginning to understand.

Nerve-signaling chemicals called neurotransmitters control whether we are asleep or awake by acting on different groups of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain. Neurons in the brainstem, which connects the brain with the spinal cord, produce neurotransmitters such as serotonin and norepinephrine that keep some parts of the brain active while we are awake. Other neurons at the base of the brain begin signaling when we fall asleep. These neurons appear to "switch off" the signals that keep us awake. Research also suggests that a chemical called adenosine builds up in our blood while we are awake and causes drowsiness. This chemical gradually breaks down while we sleep.

During sleep, we usually pass through five phases of sleep: stages 1, 2, 3, 4, and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. These stages progress in a cycle from stage 1 to REM sleep, then the cycle starts over again with stage 1 (see figure 1). We spend almost 50 percent of our total sleep time in stage 2 sleep, about 20 percent in REM sleep, and the remaining 30 percent in the other stages. Infants, by contrast, spend about half of their sleep time in REM sleep.

Sleep research is expanding and attracting more and more attention from scientists. Researchers now know that sleep is an active and dynamic state that greatly influences our waking hours, and they realize that we must understand sleep to fully understand the brain. Innovative techniques, such as brain imaging, can now help researchers understand how different brain regions function during sleep and how different activities and disorders affect sleep. Understanding the factors that affect sleep in health and disease also may lead to revolutionary new therapies for sleep disorders and to ways of overcoming jet lag and the problems associated with shift work. We can expect these and many other benefits from research that will allow us to truly understand sleep's impact on our lives

The Stages of Sleep

Effect of partial sleep deprivation on sleep stages and EEG power spectra: evidence for non-REM and REM sleep homeostasis.


The background activity of the brain is called the electroencephalogram (EEG) and can be recorded by the use of scalp electrodes. The dominant frequency and amplitude characteristic of the surface EEG varies with states of arousal.

A person goes through five stages while going to sleep.

Calm wakefulness is accompanied by alpha waves 8-12 Hz (cycles per second) and low voltage fast activity of mixed frequency. This is called stage one. Alpha waves disappear when we open our eyes.

As sleep deepens into stage two, bursts of 12-14 Hz (sleep spindles) and high amplitude slow waves appear.

The deep sleep of stages three and four is featured by an increasing proportion of high voltage slow activity. Breathing is regular in slow-wave sleep or non-REM (Rapid Eye Movements) sleep.

Delta activity (very slow waves, 0.5-4 Hz, high amplitude) is unusual in a normal record and accompanies deep sleep i.e. stages three and four sleep.

After about 70 minutes or so mostly spent in stages three and four, the first REM period occurs, usually heralded by an increase in body movements, and a shift in the EEG pattern from stage four to stage two. These rapid low-voltage irregular waves resemble those seen in alert humans; sleep, however, is not interrupted. This is called stage 5 or REM sleep, when the EEG activity gets desynchronised. There is marked muscle atonia despite the rapid eye movements in REM sleep, and the breathing is irregular.

Theta activity with a pattern of large regular waves occurs in normal children and is briefly seen in stage one sleep and also in REM sleep.

Non-REM (NREM) sleep passes through stages one and two, and spends 60-70 minutes in stages three and four. Sleep then lightens and a REM period follows. This cycle is repeated three or four times per night, at intervals of about 90 minutes throughout the night, depending on the length of sleep. REM sleep occupies 25% of total sleeping time.

What is the Scientific Method?

The word "science" is derived from a Latin verb meaning "to know." Scientists use the scientific method to construct an accurate representation of the world through the testing of scientific theories. These theories enhance our understanding and knowledge (to know) of the world. A theory, such as Einstein's theory of relativity or Darwin's theory of natural selection, accounts for many facts and attempts to explain a great variety of phenomena. Such a unifying theory does not become widely accepted in science unless its prediction can withstand thorough and continuous testing by experiments and observations (Campbell).

When the eyes are opened, the alpha rhythm is replaced by fast irregular low voltage activity with no dominant frequency, called the alpha block. Any form of sensory stimulation or mental concentration such as solving arithmetic problems could produce this break-up of the alpha rhythm. This replacement of the regular alpha rhythm with irregular low voltage activity is called "desynchronisation."

Sleep Disorders

At least 40 million Americans each year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders each year, and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleeping problems. These disorders and the resulting sleep deprivation interfere with work, driving, and social activities. They also account for an estimated $16 billion in medical costs each year, while the indirect costs due to lost productivity and other factors are probably much greater. Doctors have described more than 70 sleep disorders, most of which can be managed effectively once they are correctly diagnosed. The most common sleep disorders include insomnia, sleep apnea, Restless Legs Syndrome, and narcolepsy.

Your Biological Rhythms

SLEEP PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AND SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS

Pulsed electromagnetic therapy (PEMF) has been used with high degrees of success even where other therapies have failed, and without ANY meaningful adverse reactions, for decades world-wide. Numerous studies have been performed, all with acceptable degrees of success in controlling the problems associated with sleep.

One recent double-blind, placebo controlled study assessed the efficacy of impulse magnetic-field therapy for insomnia. One hundred patients were randomly assigned to either active treatment or placebo. Seventy percent of the patients given active treatment experienced substantial or even complete relief of their complaints; 24% reported clear improvement; 6% noted a slight improvement. This are simply incredible results!

Pulsed electromagnetic fields for sleep couldn't have come at a better time. Recent sleep research from literally every corner of the world has determined most people don't sleep well, as many as 10% are either diagnosed with or complain of chronic insomnia, and record numbers of young and old are turning to prescription sleep aids. Within the last few weeks it has been determined that even babies and toddlers are not sleeping as well as they used to.

Research conducted over previous years for pulsed electromagnetic field therapy indicates that varied improvements in neurological, physiological and psychological actions have been achieved with no adverse reactions. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has proven effective in thousands of cases where conventional therapy has failed.

Results of this double-blind, placebo-controlled study indicated that low-energy-emission therapy significantly improved sleeping patterns among patients suffering from chronic psychophysiological insomnia.

Therapy was administered 3 times per week, always in late afternoon and for 20 minutes, over a period of 4 weeks.

"Is Sleep Deprivation Ruining Your Life?"

Sleep is the foundation of your life. Sleep deprivation affects every area of you life including your health, stamina, relationships, and even your career. The decisions you make and your ability to handle life's problems are dependent on the quality of your sleep.

Lack of sleep can lead to you being irritable and snappy. You may experience difficulty concentrating and get regular headaches. Your confidence and self-esteem can be ruined by sleep deprivation. Chronic sleep deprivation also appears to be the single biggest trigger for depression.

LEARNING

Here are some Interesting characteristics of a person who is likely to be successful in learning:

highly optimistic
sleeps well
knowledge hungry
stress-tolerant
energetic but able to slow down at the time of learning

Here are some unfortunate characteristics that do not correlate well with the ability to study effectively

depressive
problems with sleep (esp. insomnia)
high levels of stress
overexcited
low stress tolerance (smokers, people with a drinking problem, abusers of mood altering substances, etc.)


It has been known since the 1920s that sleep improves recall in learning. However, only recently, research by Dr Robert Stickgold, assistant professor of psychiatry at Massachusetts Mental Health Center, has made international headlines. Dr Stickgold demonstrated a fact that has long been known yet little appreciated: sleep is necessary for learning! Without sleep we reduce the retention of facts we have learned the previous day (and not only). Studying nights before an exam may be sufficient for passing the exam, yet it will leave few useful traces in long-term memory. The exam on its own replaces knowledge as the main purpose of studying!

The Effects Of Sleep Deprivation

A growing number of scientists are discovering that the sleeping brain does something to solidify memories and process newly learned information. With most people routinely getting far less sleep than they should, some experts are starting to wonder if widespread sleep deprivation is having a real but unrecognised effect on society's brainpower and creativity.

Recent research is revealing that sleep is essential not only to brain function but to the proper function of every bodily organ.

Sleep researchers can point to a whole list of problems and diseases connected to sleep deprivation. A 19-year-old college student with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder (manic-depression) has too much energy to sleep for six nights running and experiences uncontrolled mania.

A 67-year-old man with prostate problems wakes up to go to the bathroom half a dozen times a night, and one morning he has a heart attack. A healthy man of 30 gets half his required sleep - fours hours a night - for a week and ends up in a pre-diabetic state with the metabolism of his grandfather.

An 82-year-old woman falls and breaks her hip, maybe for the same reason that a 43-year-old truck driver slams into a barrier at 3a.m. - inattention and slowed response because of partial sleep deprivation.

The need for sleep is so strong that without enough of it, people can't even muster enough willpower to stay awake to save their lives. Sleep deprivation can come with a high cost.

The message is clear: get your sleep or suffer the consequences.

  • The Delta Brainwave frequency is often thought to be the answer to promoting healthy cellular activity, but what happens when sleep is disrupted? With all the worries of your day, even if you do sleep it may not be the very specific type of sleep required to help repair damaged cells. Even as the world grows more and more carcinogenic, our minds are less and less able to fight back. It's no wonder, cancer is quickly overtaking heart disease to become the number one killer.

    Thanks to our brainwave entrainment program, the body can achieve Delta patterns easily. When you listen, your mind will be eased to an enhanced Delta state, where your body's powerful healing mechanism Kicks in. While in this state, energy will be focused on healing and maintenance of your body rather than movement and reaction. In this state a powerful transformation takes place that will help your body become healthier and stronger. Not only does the Delta state promote DNA repair, but can also assist in muscle recovery and healing in general! Start to feel better about your health! Your body works hard, it's time to pay it back: DNA Stimulation

  • With our Sleep Package, it's no longer difficult to fall into a quick relaxation state and get started with important REM sleep.

Before you even know for sure that it's working, you will be quickly transported to that state of consciousness you've been desperately trying to get all night.

  • The Delta brain wave pattern is the same pattern you enter when you go for a good night's sleep.

  • Our Delta Frequency works to stimulate the pituitary gland in your brain. Your pituitary gland is what governs growth in the body, and assuming your hair loss is not stress related it could be the answer to your hair loss. As our recording stimulates this powerful growth gland while you sleep it releases hormones that promote growth and healing of the scalp. And if your hair loss is stress related, each of our brainwave entrainment therapies work to open neural pathways to promote stability. Of course our stress relief therapy is the best for general stress, but if your goal is a head of thick hair, this is the one for you. Of course as an added bonus, a well stimulated pituitary will not only help you regrow hair, but will also help you build muscle, slim down, and give you a jolt of energy, and supercharge your immune system so when you wake up in the morning, you not only look great, but feel great.
