Did you know that 50% of Americans suffer from Insomnia? Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center recently conducted a study which using a non-invasive approach to reduce to symptoms of insomnia. Their study involved a new technology whose purpose is to help the brain frequencies acheive greater harmony and balance through musical tones. The technology is called HIRREM, high-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring, aka Brainwave Optimization. The results were based on a zero-to-28 scale called the ISI, or Insomnia Severity Index, which judged the severity of sleep disruption. On average, the study participants ranked between 18.7 and 18.9 on the ISI scale, placing them in the moderate-to-severe insomnia category. Researchers found that the HIRREM group dropped 10.3 points on the ISI. Their symptoms improved and, clinically, they moved into a category of ‘no insomnia’ or ‘sub threshold insomnia’.
