Nashville, TN (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
When the most recent Consumer Reports study on sleep aids was released in September, it probably surprised no one that prescription sleep medications again topped the list as the most effective sleep solution with a 75% effectiveness rate. But what did surprise many experts was that sleep sounds and music was close behind at 70% - far more effective than over-the-counter medications and muscle relaxation techniques (57% and 40% respectively).
The Wesley Sleep Program was released in December with no significant marketing plan, and immediately shot to #2 in Amazon.com's Audio Books category, where it remains as a best-seller. With less disposable income, many Americans are finding that the second-most effective sleep aid may be a more financially responsible way of acquiring sleep than spending money on prescriptions month after month.
Billy Wilkins, a musician, educator and former member of the platinum-selling and GRAMMY Award-winning group Third Day, developed the Wesley Sleep Program based on Biblical principals. The first portion of the audio CD is designed to soothingly equip the listener for real rest, while combating four common sleep hindrances. The remaining musical portion leads to even deeper levels of relaxation and calm sleep.
In the accompanying book, Wilkins speaks open and honestly about his own struggle with insomnia and anxiety medications. While regularly taking a popular sleep medication, he decided that there must be a better way to relax than risking drug dependency, and so he began searching the Bible for the peace that he needed to rest effectively. Wilkins found so many scriptures that answered and supported his spiritual quest that he soon began to realize that this level of peace was God's desire for all of His children. He began to chronicle his findings, while following his musical instincts and researching music therapy, and was soon on the path to developing the Wesley Sleep Program.
"Traffic to our website has increased 500% in the past three months, and since the release in December, the CD has already sold out on Amazon five times," says Wilkins. "For some reason, more and more people are finding interest in this program."
