Learn How To Cure Your Insomnia In 6 Simple Steps And Start Sleeping Like A Baby In Just 3 Days!
I spent 15 years of my life hindered by lack of sleep. I was pushed from doctor to doctor, pill to pill, counselor to psychologist and eventually to the top insomnia specialist in Europe.
Sleep to me was always a real-life nightmare. I never looked forward to my bedtime because 9 times out of 10 I would get a restless night’s sleep and wake up feeling lethargic and gloomy.
I just didn’t understand why I couldn’t fall asleep instantly, and why when I did fall asleep I couldn’t stay asleep for 7 or 8 hours like “normal people” did.
“Not one to be defeated, I embarked on a mission to discover the cure for insomnia”.
After numerous courses of sleeping pills, blood tests and more, my luck changed when my doctor referred me to a Sleep Hygiene Therapist at a sleep clinic in London’s Harley Street.
At the time this was a considered a new approach to insomnia, and was slowly being adopted by the medical profession as a way to cure insomnia naturally without benzodiazepines, which by then were renowned for causing rebound insomnia and heaps of side-effects.
After my first session I was truly motivated. I began to realize that there were many aspects of my lifestyle affecting my sleep, things I could change and control myself, without the need for pills. For a start I was involved in music, which meant late nights and going to bed at different times. I was also partial to the occasional cigarette before bed, something I then foolishly believed to be a relaxant.
Over the course of six weeks, my therapist taught me many interesting things about sleep, like how the body responds to light exposure, and how hormones and brainwaves play a major role in the sleep–wake cycle. We spoke about exercise and diet and how humans lived 10,000 years ago compared to how they live in modern times. It was incredible, and just learning more about sleep dramatically improved my sleep.
These sleep hygiene sessions changed my life in one fundamental way; they helped me turn the table in my favour. The knowledge gave me control. I had been given the power to cure my insomnia using natural means that I was already in ownership of.
How I took back ownership of my sleep
And so I manifested what I had learned and undertook a research mission. I put myself through trial and error until I completely understood every aspect of my environment and lifestyle that might possibly be affecting my sleep. I studied sleep through the ages, comparing the sleeping pattern of our hunter-gatherer ancestors with that of modern man. I discovered that insomnia had begun manifesting itself in society post the invention of electricity, and even more so post the agricultural revolution.
As I dug deeper, I discovered that just about everything humans were doing was counterproductive in getting a good night’s sleep. From an unhealthy sleep-wake cycle and lack of sun exposure to lack of exercise, eating the wrong foods, negative brain stimulation and an unfavorable sleeping environment, it’s no wonder we are all struggling to sleep!
Through this research I founded the Six Steps, a process that reprograms the body and creates and health sleep-wake cycle using good sleep hygiene methodology. The book was very well received, and I even got a congratulatory letter from my old sleep hygiene therapist!
Over the following year I continued my research, endeavouring to discover more practical ways of helping myself and others optimize their sleep. What I discovered next enhanced the Six Steps even further, and changed my life forever…
A discovery that changed my life
After researching lifestyle and environment, I began studying brainwave activity and the way the brain responds to varying lifestyle conditions. I learned that brainwaves work in the same way electrical equipment does. Brainwaves are measured in Hz, and like electricity the current changes when turned up or down.
For example, when we are in high states of anxiety the speed of our brainwaves increases, and when we are relaxed the speed of our brainwaves decreases. When the brain is fully aware and awake (in the Beta state) it runs at around 20 ~ 40 Hz, when we are in a very relaxed state (the Theta state) the brainwaves run at around 4hz-8hz, and in deep sleep (the Delta state) our brains run at around 1-4hz.
This made absolute sense to me because my sleep therapist had mentioned years earlier that in order to induce sleep we have to slow down brainwave activity. The Six Steps I had developed already did this through the use of ‘mental triggers’ that help the brain associate bed with sleep, but I found an effective way of enhancing this process by listening to special meditation music that uses theta and delta frequencies within the recording to relax the mind.
I discovered that it was possible to slow brainwaves down by entraining the brain to release theta waves for deep relaxation and delta waves to promote deep sleep, simply by listening to this special music.
This was a major discovery that became the proverbial icing on the cake.
Haven’t heard of Binaural Beats? Let me explain…
Thanks to some groundbreaking research by Doctor Gerald Oster in 1973, it was learned that audio signals could be used to train (or ‘entrain’ to use the technical term) the brain to automatically move into certain frequency ranges. I won’t bore you with the finer technical details, but let’s just say that binaural beats meditation music is used the world over to strengthen memory, increase focus and concentration, treat ADHD, depression and, among other things, cure insomnia.
And so I got in touch with the brainwave specialists at BinauralBeatsMeditation.com, and had three binaural beats audios specifically developed to be used in conjunction with the Six Steps.
The final piece of the jigsaw
I know from experience that when people have suffered insomnia for a long period of time they build up a psychological barrier around sleep. They become anxious and fearful of not being able to sleep. Such people are more susceptible to slipping back into a pattern of insomnia after just one or two bad night’s sleep, and it’s easy for them to associate bed/bedtime with not sleeping again, which triggers sleep anxiety. To break this barrier down, I worked with a hypnosis specialist to develop Sleep Like A Baby, a powerful hypnosis recording that uses theta waves to relax the mind and subliminal messaging to eliminate fear and anxiety around sleep.
The result is a powerful 3-pronged approach:
- The Six Steps uses practical good sleep hygiene methods to correct the negative lifestyle and environment conditions that contribute to insomnia.
- The Six Steps uses binaural beats meditation music to train the brain to settle into the theta zone when it’s time to prepare for sleep, and then the delta zone when its time to be healthily cycling through the sleep stages.
- The Six Steps uses a powerful sleep hypnosis recording to eliminate negative thought patterns that contribute to sleep anxiety and to prevent rebound insomnia.
“I spent 15 years suffering insomnia. But I found the cure. And now I’m sharing it with you.”
So Simple, Anyone Can Do It!
Using the Six Steps methodology and audio accompaniments, I have naturally evolved from insomniac to sleep lover. And since its inception, the Six Steps has become the cure for over one hundred thousand others, too.
All you have to do is follow the Six Steps set out in the book for 30-days straight, listen to the audios at the suggested times, and start sleeping like a baby. That’s it! Within 3-days you’ll witness an amazing transformation, as your sleep-wake cycle begins to reset and you begin to sleep faster, deeper and longer.
