Poor sleep is annoying, but its also more serious than that. Just one night of poor sleep lowers your IQ and impairs your memory the next day. And chronic insomnia increases your risk for almost every disease including Alzhemer’s and heart disease.
Insomnia is serious, it’s common and it can be challenging to deal with because good sleep habits are often not enough, and sleep medications don’t give your brain what it really needs for good healthy sleep.
But now, thanks to new discoveries in neuroscience, you can easily create the conditions in your brain for great sleep! You can do this “drug free” from the comfort of your home with the Sleep Well, Heal Well™ program and proven BrainTime® technology.
Sleep Well, Heal Well™ is a 5-module educational program to supplement your BrainTime membership. The program is delivered through downloadable MP3 audio recordings, together with written summaries, exercises and instructions.
