The MP3s That Cure Insomnia

Insomnia. I'm not sure there's anything more frustrating.

The endless staring at the ceiling. That desperate waiting for slumber to finally kick in. The feeling of immense tiredness throughout the next day.

But such sleep problems may be a thing of the past thanks to a new scientific audio program.

The Sleep Salon is a new program designed to help eliminate sleeping problems by tapping into the power of the mind. It uses special sounds to help influence brainwave patterns, taking the brain from being wide awake and lulling it gently into a deep, relaxing sleep.

The program comes from the creators of the Brain Evolution System and the Brain Salon, and is based on over 100 years of brainwave research.

The science is pretty simple. Your brain emits a mild electrical frequency, which can be measured using an EEG machine. They call these 'brainwaves', and different brainwave frequencies mean that you're in different states of mind. So, as you're reading this, you're likely consciously alert and attentive, and so your brainwaves should be operating in the Beta (12-30 Hz) frequency. However when you're asleep, brainwaves dip down to the Delta (0.1-4 Hz) frequency. And yes, this is all common knowledge in the science world.

The Sleep Salon taps into this, by capitalizing on a physics phenomenon known as "entrainment." When you strike one tuning fork and hold another next to it, the second starts resonating at the same frequency. It's the same with the brain: when exposed to a certain frequency, the brain 'copies' that frequency. The sessions inside the Sleep Salon all contain special 'encoded' frequencies. When the brain 'hears' these frequencies, it copies them -- taking your brain down from the wide-awake Beta frequency down to deep-sleep Delta.

To put it even simpler: listen to these simple MP3 audio files -- and you'll fall asleep.
