Ogden, UT (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
According to the National Sleep Foundation, 40 million American adults have a chronic sleep disorder. But nearly three times that number — 60% of adults and 69% of children — report trouble sleeping a few nights a week or more. Lack of sleep comes with a high cost to our ability to learn, our health and safety, and quality of life.
“A lack of adequate sleep can affect judgment, mood, ability to learn and retain information, and may increase the risk of serious accidents and injury,” said Alex Doman, founder and CEO of Advanced Brain Technologies. “Chronic sleep deprivation may lead to a host of health problems — diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, and obesity. If you’ve ever had a tough time falling asleep, you know the effect it can have the next day.”
Most people don’t get enough sleep, and a $32 billion industry is feeding on that need. From pharmaceuticals, to unproven over-the-counter supplements, to special pillows, sleep masks, ear plugs and sound machines, the sleepless masses are struggling to find a safe and effective solution.
But what if something as simple as the right sounds could help adults and children fall sleep faster and stay asleep longer?
The Listening Program® SLEEP is just such a solution. It was created by Advanced Brain Technologies in collaboration with neuroscientist Seth Horowitz, Ph.D., and Lance Massey, sound designer and creator of the T-Mobile ringtone. TLP SLEEP uses a proprietary combination of nearly-inaudible sounds embedded in beautiful music to help children and adults achieve a sleep that’s natural, easy, restful and refreshing.
“Recent studies have demonstrated that sedatives and hypnotics don’t induce ‘normal’ sleep,” said Dr. Seth Horowitz, author of ‘The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes Mind.’ “And, while ‘sleep machines’ and ‘apps’ that play quiet repetitive sounds and music are calming and useful for masking intrusive sounds, they don’t actually induce sleep."
“TLP SLEEP uses three kinds of sound that work directly on the brain in different ways,” added Horowitz. “Very low frequency sounds trigger the motion-induced sleepiness that babies experience while being rocked; quiet “pink” noise shaped to match the sound signatures of heartbeats and breathing to reduce activity in the brain's arousal centers; and binaural beats help the brain match the waveforms that characterize the stages of sleep.”
That’s a whole lot of neuroscience talk, which comes down to this: simulated, gentle rocking, barely-audible beats that match sleep waveforms in the brain, and acoustically-modified instrumental music make TLP SLEEP safe, effective, and completely unique in the marketplace.
Ad-hoc clinical testing has demonstrated the effectiveness of these sounds in inducing sleep by reducing sleep latency and increasing efficiency in subjects ranging in age from 1 to 62, and has been shown to decrease sleep latency, increase sleep efficiency, or both, in up to 77% of people with normal binaural hearing.
“Using The Listening Program® SLEEP is easy,” added Alex Doman. “The music programs come loaded on an iPod shuffle equipped with SleepPhones® — special headphones with speakers embedded in a comfortable, washable headband. At bedtime, just place the SleepPhones comfortably on your head, select a SLEEP program, and let the music take you away.”
