SILENT NIGHTS –The Miracle Sleep Restorer
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
Insomnia is one of the most serious and common health problems. The average American is said to sleep an average of 5.5 hours. A minimum of 7 or 8 hours is essential. Insomnia weakens the immune system and is a major contributor to obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
A few months ago a friend introduced me to the LifeWave line of products. At my suggestion the company encouraged me to do a research project on Silent Nights, their “Non-transdermal Acupuncture Activation” system for sleep enhancement.
I enrolled 25 individuals with chronic insomnia. We did a battery of baseline tests for the effects of the insomnia and gave them the LifeWave Silent Nights patches. These paste on patches “— only reflect energy back into the body and they do not generate energy.
LifeWave patches are a safe and effective new technology capable of gently stimulating acupuncture points without the use of needles. LifeWave’s Silent Nights patches utilize this innovative technology to stimulate acupuncture points on the body for improving the flow of energy and promoting drug-free sleep. The patches are designed to stimulate acupuncture points by several mechanisms that involve both acupressure and energetic principles.
The self-adhesive patches utilize the principles of Oriental medicine and needleless acupuncture to stimulate gently points on the body that have been used to balance and improve the flow of energy in the human body for thousands of years. Because the patches are nontransdermal, the use of these patches results in a natural way of improving the quality of your life without any chemicals, drugs or sedatives entering your body.
Multiple independent double-blind-placebo-controlled clinical studies have already been completed proving the effectiveness of LifeWave technology. In addition, extensive infrared studies have shown that LifeWave patches provide a thermoregulating effect to the body, promoting relaxation and stress reduction by stimulating parasympathetic nervous system activity. The parasympathetic nervous system is one of the main divisions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS, in turn, is the component of the nervous system that is responsible for balancing and regulating all of the internal organs and glands, which occurs unconsciously. The parasympathetic system specifically is responsible for controlling the processes of the body that occur when the body is at rest. Finally, brain wave monitoring of individuals wearing the Silent Nights patches has shown that the patches calm brain waves patterns, bringing deeper more restful sleep.
The results of my insomnia study were striking:
- 72 to 88% of the subjects experienced significant improvement in sleep!
- 72% had NORMAL daytime sleepiness? (ESS test)
- 80% improved quality of sleep (LESQ test)
- 88% had improved length of sleep (PSQ Test)
There are a number of additional scientific studies on other LifeWave products, making this one of the very few companies actually doing the research essential to prove efficacy for these subtle energy approaches to health. In order to remain neutral for potential future research, I have resisted the urge to become a distributor. However, I am happy to recommend you contact—–
