In a previous article I talked a bit about how using Binaural Beats has helped me to cure my Insomnia. I want to dig a little deeper into this and offer you a FREE way to test it out to see if it can help you.
Like most of you reading this blog, I suffered badly from Insomnia. Many nights I didn’t get ANY sleep at all at night. Yuck I just wasn’t able to shut my brain off! Sleeping pills were my solution, and they helped sometimes, but then I studied the side effects! I realized that the side effects could be worse than the insomnia itself.
In studying more about Insomnia, I realized that there were a whole lot more health problems associated with it. That includes things like high blood pressure, weight gain and of course not being able to function normally during the day.
Why this blog?
As I studied more and more about different natural solutions for insomnia I was motivated to create this Insomniasleepaid.com blog. I hope that what I learned might help others suffering as I was.
Because of the risk of addiction and the side effects of prescription medicines, I continue to seek out natural solutions. Strangely enough one of the side effects of prescription sleep medicines can be tiredness. So in my seeking, I came across a holistic option and that is binaural beats.
Using Binaural Beats to Cure Insomnia
So you may ask, what exactly are binaural beats? Well the answer to this might be a tad bit technical, so bear with me, because it really all makes perfect sense. What binaural beats really do is to alter the brain state. They can either increase or decrease brainwave activity, depending on what we want to accomplish. Of course for our discussion we want to decrease anxiety, and cause our brain to get into a sleep mode.
Sleeping pills are designed to “knock you out” rather than fix your sleeping problem. Binaural beats recordings however, are entirely safe and totally natural. It’s just like listening to music.
We want brainwaves to decrease. If it comes close to bedtime and you still feel wide-awake and somewhat stressed from your day, you could listen to a recording in the Theta zone to lower your brainwave activity.
The way it works is like this. Your brain hears two different tones. One tone is in the right ear, and the second is in the left. That is why you use headphones when listening to binaural beats. The brain processes the differences in these two background tones as a third tone, like a pulsating beat. Sometimes I can almost feel my body pulsating to that beat. Let me give an example here of what I mean.
Let’s use an example.
Let’s say, for example, if we send a tone of 300 Hz to the left ear, and a tone of 305 Hz to the right ear. Your brain will then process a binaural beat at 5 Hz. By listening to that for a few minutes, the brain begins to process that into the theta state of deep relaxation which results in SLEEP! The brain processes these different binaural frequencies in different ways. No need to get into all the technical details at this point, but there are different frequencies that can also help the brain focus better, and achieve other desired results. These tones are often buried behind soothing music, ocean waves, or other sounds like that.
By using binaural beats on a regular basis you can train the brain to become more relaxed. Your brain will finally allow you to sleep and enjoy life again. There are two modes of binaural beats that we would be concerned with for insomnia. The first would be to get help you get into a state of relaxation, That state is a theta mode. Then what I’ve been using to help me to sleep is a little more powerful mode for a deep sleep. That is called a delta mode. It uses a slower binaural frequency. Basically the slower the frequency the deeper the sleep. Conversely, higher frequencies can do just the opposite. They can cause a higher state of awareness, which is also very helpful DURING THE DAY or your normal awake hours.
It’s a simple and NATURAL solution to insomnia.
I was quite shocked at the results! Using Binaural Beats is such a simple solution.
