In today’s electronic, caffeine-driven society, it’s not too surprising that a large number of Americans are having trouble sleeping. In addition to an over-consumption of caffeine and sugar, we are exposed to a constant bombardment of radiation (cell phones), electromagnetic frequencies (wifi networks) and declining air quality. This can also have a big impact on our stress levels.
Sleep disorders have reached epidemic status: Recent studies on the prevalence of insomnia show us that almost 1/3 of the US population suffers from some form of sleep disturbance. So what can be done?
There are many things that can help, including better diet and exercise. In addition, meditation, yoga and other calming methods can contribute to relief for insomnia and sleep disorders. And supplements can also be very helpful.
For more permanent relief, neurofeedback is a great tool to help change pattern in the brain that cause sleep issues. Even at-home brain trainers can do a great job of calming the brain.
Sleep is a brain regulated function, and neurofeedback trains specific parts of the brain to work at an optimum frequency, in this case those associated with sleep regulation. It makes sense that neurofeedback would be a valuable therapy in the treatment of sleep disorders. Like the engine in your car, the brain needs a tune-up at times, to counteract the degenerative effects of wear and tear.
There are numerous studies on the benefits of neurofeedback for sleep disorders and insomnia. Here is a link to one of them: (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19826944). This is good news for today’s always-on-the-move generation that spends too much time “plugged in” or over-caffeinated. Neurofeedback has shown promise in being able to help regulate the areas of the brain that cause sleep disorders.
