THE IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP
When we sleep well, we wake up feeling refreshed and alert for our daily activities. Sleep affects how we look, feel and perform on a daily basis, and can have a major impact on our overall quality of life.
To get the most out of our sleep, both quantity and quality are important. If sleep is cut short, the body doesn’t have time to complete all of the phases needed for muscle repair, memory consolidation and release of hormones regulating growth and appetite. We wake up less prepared to concentrate, make decisions, or engage fully in school, work or the gym.
When you’re deprived of sleep, your brain can’t function properly, affecting your cognitive abilities and emotional state. If it continues long enough, it can lower your body’s defenses, putting you at risk of developing chronic illness. The more obvious signs of sleep deprivation are excessive sleepiness, yawning, and irritability. Chronic sleep deprivation or insomnia can interfere with balance, coordination, and decision-making abilities. You’re at risk of falling asleep during the day, even if you fight it. Stimulants like caffeine are not able to override your body’s profound need for sleep.
NEUROPTIMAL AND SLEEP
Studies have shown that users who have suffered from a variety of sleep issues and disorders have seen a huge shift in their quality and length of sleep in as little as 1-5 sessions. Sleep issues ranging from difficulties falling, staying or getting back to sleep, night terrors and nightmares through to severe cases of insomnia have all been helped over the last 15 years through the use of NeurOptimal® neurofeedback.
The following chart shows data collected from trainers and users across the globe and highlights how just 6-10 sessions gained them a 50% reduction of symptoms associated with sleep disorders. Carrying on with 11-20 and 20+ sessions saw these numbers grow to 72% & 82% respectively:
One study has shown a visible increase in data when tracking a user who has suffered from Insomnia and how Neuroptimal® Neurofeedback showed a marked increase in sleep quality and a reduction in broken sleep.
Another study has shown how NeurOptimal® potentially interfaces with, and restores, natural sleep rhythms. New evidence mapping cellular networks underlying the brain’s circadian timing nucleus has provided a potential focus of control for the human circadian rhythm (HCR). This network provides a biologically plausible regulatory site for external influence of the HCR-notably pharmacologic agents, environmental influence, and particularly salient to this presentation, NeurOptimal®.

"I have been sleeping SO WELL since the sessions. I don't wake up once during the night whereas I used to wake up 3 or 4 times in the night and I usually wake up before my alarm & I feel wide awake and rested. I'm lovin' it!!!"
C.M. Montreal, Quebec (after 2 sessions)
"Woman with 15 years of bad sleep-pattern (was) sleeping three hours a day, waking up at 2.00am and not able to sleep again. After seven sessions she started to sleep seven hours, non-stop. All symptoms disappeared gradually: depression, suicidal feelings, dizziness, etc. No meds anymore, still stable (training is 4 years ago)."

"Training with NeurOptimal® has been a life-changing process for me and the vast majority of my patients, friends and family members in ways that are subtle, seamless and even difficult to define in some ways, yet rather direct and so clearly obvious in other ways. In my opinion as a scientist, clinician and Interfaith minister it truly is the most powerful, sophisticated, advanced, non-linear technology available for transformation on the planet!"
Edward O’Malley Ph.D., Director, Sleep Healthcare of Connecticut
"This morning I woke up after a continuous 7.5 hours of sleep, something that hasn't happened in years. In addition, I opened my eyes and realized I felt happy. Wow. If you knew me previously you would agree that this borders on the miraculous. This all after just four sessions I gave to myself since I received the system. I'm so thrilled."
