Insomnia is a common problem. There are several sleep disorders that can interrupt, prevent or interfere with what we consider to be our normal sleep pattern. There are many different causes for insomnia. Knowing the cause makes it easier to cure the sleeping disorder. The old rule applies, it is better to fix the cause rather than the symptom.
There are three different classifications of insomnia: transient, short term or chronic. Transient insomnia only lasts for two or three nights maximum and can be caused by factors such as jet lag or stress. These same causes can also be identified with short-term insomnia, which can last from several days up to 3 weeks.
The third classification is chronic insomnia and this lasts for more than three weeks, and can be extremely debilitating. While the first two, transient and short term, are annoying and can cause some trouble, it is the chronic insomnia that causes the real problems.
Plenty of medication exists, but as long term solution drugs have many drawbacks. There are also a number of treatments that can reportedly cure insomnia naturally, and these include: hypnotism, psychology, and cognitive behavior therapy, which may help to deal with causes like stress.
There is, however, a new treatment that is at the moment less well known but that can reportedly cure insomnia naturally and is proven to have effective and exciting results. It is to do with altering your brain wave pattern by listening to a special audio CD. It is scientifically proven that brainwaves have an electrical signature that can be shown on a chart produced by an EEG (electroencephalograph).
A person's waking brainwave pattern is quite different from their sleeping brainwave pattern. When the brain is subjected to audio signals via the new sleep disks that this treatment uses, the brain actually adjusts its pattern in sympathy to the rhythm of the sleep disk. This is being called brain entertainment and it is proven to work. What happens is that the brain creates new neural pathways so these patterns are remembered, and once done, it is not forgotten. This means that you do not need to listen to the CD for the rest of your life. The end result; your insomnia is cured.
