In the search for a treatment for sleep disorder, there are those that are mildly effective, but dangerous. For instance, sleeping pills, whether taken over the counter or through prescriptions, are more than mildly addictive. Coupled with the fact that none of these maintain effectiveness beyond a useful of weeks' use, dependency is pretty much inevitable. There are other methods of treatment for sleep deprivation, insomnia or similar disorder problems however, and those which are non-intrusive are the safest.
A good example of this is the use of the old binaural audio therapy. Two separate sets of tones and pulses that are slightly out of sync with each other as far as frequency are each one sent to each ear through stereo headphones. As the brain processes these as one signal, the desired brainwave activity results, which induces sleep. The major handicap with this however, is the discomfort of sleeping with the headset on, and when it gets knocked off during sleep, making the person wake up again. It all proved to be generally counterproductive to the efforts.
The latest breakthrough in using this technology as a treatment for sleep disorder has gone away with the need for stereo equipment. This treatment involves the use of isochronic tones and pulses which promote the brainwave activity most conducive to restful sleep without the need for a stereo headset. Only use a basic CD player is needed, and the barely audible tones and pulses do their work in the background of false musical sounds. Using this treatment for attaining restful slumber, sleep disorder sufferers find a full night's sleep just 10-15 minutes away.
