Questions for You
- Do you have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep?
- Do you wake up several times during the night?
- Do you often wake up more tired than when you went to bed?
- Does sleep medication fail to give you the sleep you crave and leave you feeling drowsy the following day?
Importance of Sleep
Sleeplessness is more than just a hassle; it can also be life threatening. The National Department of Transportation estimates drowsy driving to be responsible for 1,550 fatalities and 40,000 nonfatal injuries annually in the United States.
A good night's sleep is critical to the maintenance of good health. Without it, you increase your susceptibility to an array of health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and depression. Insufficient sleep can also compromise your entire immune system. You exercise in order to keep your immune system functioning at peak efficiency, up, but if you aren't sleeping properly, all that effort can be undone, as the immune system works best when you get a good night's sleep.
You are not alone. Millions of people have searched tirelessly for a treatment that works, only to become discouraged by traditional therapies that offer no real cure, and which only disguise the symptoms.
Insomnia and Drugs
Oftentimes, when a doctor hears a patient say, "I need something to help me sleep at night," they immediately turn to the failsafe of modern western medicine — drugs. Prescriptions for sleeping medications in the U.S. topped 56 million in 2008 — a new record, according to the research firm IMS Health, up 54% from 2004.
While pharmaceuticals might help some people sleep at night, the effects can be temporary. For others, drugs might not help them sleep at all. This, compounded with unwanted side effects, can make a person's sleep problem worsen over time.
For people who have been taking drugs that help them sleep at night for many years, it can feel like there is no way out. You might fall into this category. If you find yourself feeling like your sleep patterns have come unraveled and are begging for someone to "help me sleep at night," it might be time to consider an option that can help you restore a healthy, natural sleep pattern.
CES and Insomnia
Western medicine's reliance on "taking something" to help restore balance, means the introduction of medication. The truth, however, is that when a drug is introduced into the body it only masks the real problem, throwing your balance further out of whack. This is the reason drugs often work well for a time, only to have sleep problems later reappear, often worse than they were initially.
Drug therapy proves insufficient because the root of the sleeping problem has not been addressed. This is because the natural rhythms and chemistry of the brain have been interrupted and replaced with whatever drug was introduced into that chemistry. The chemicals act as a crutch for the brain, which no longer can operate to its fullest capacity. Subsequently dosages have to be increased when sleep again becomes problematic. However, dosages have limits where they become unsafe, when you reach this point you are back at square-one, only far worse off than you were to begin with.
All of which leads to the question, "Is there anything besides drugs that can help me sleep better?" That is where CES enters the picture.
People who have exhausted other methods to help them sleep are finding that CES was the answer they were seeking from the start. There are a number of reasons why CES has proven successful for people with sleep deficiencies:
- CES treats the causes of poor sleep rather than the symptoms.
- CES uses the natural processes of the brain to reset your sleep clock, thus reestablishing your natural sleeping rhythms.
- CES has no known side effects.
- CES helps the brain to function naturally without introducing a chemical cocktail.
- CES relieves the symptoms caused by insomnia and anxiety.
CES uses a gentle electrical impulse applied to the ear lobes that is anatomically transferred to the brain. The unit is handheld, and is designed to be used at home. Best of all, CES is far less expensive than the ongoing costs of drug prescriptions.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows the medical claims of "insomnia and anxiety" for CES use. Anxiety is a common trigger of insomnia or sleep problems in general. Anxiety will begin to cause sleep problems in people who haven't previously experienced difficulties with sleep. A vicious cycle will often begin to take place in individuals whereby: the more anxious a person becomes the more they suffer from sleep disorders; the more one suffers from sleep disorder the more anxious one becomes, and on and on.
The challenge is to restore the natural rhythm of neurological patterns is established by restoring a chemical balance. When this balance is working as it should, sleep comes naturally. When it ceases to function normally, you lie awake in bed wondering, "Will I ever have a good night's sleep?"
The answer: By allowing the brain to "reset" to its normal rhythms, CES creates a new and healthy habit for your sleeping patterns.
