If you are one of the many thousands of people who have trouble sleeping, then I am sure you have tried just about every sleep aid on the market to find relief for your insomnia. The plain truth is even if you are taking Ambien or Lunesta to cure your insomnia, you should know that both of those drugs are only effective when used for the short term relief of insomnia.
A clinical trial found that after administration of zolpidem trial subjects tended to feel weak, fatigued and developed an antagonistic mood. Other reported side effects include: Residual ‘hangover’ effects such as sleepiness, impaired psycho-motor and cognitive skills after nighttime administration and may persist into the next day, which may impair the ability of users to drive safely and may increase the risks of falls and hip fractures.
With all of these potential added issues, and the fact that Ambien, Lunesta, and many other similar sedative hypnotic medications only mask the actual symptoms of insomnia, isn’t it time to consider other options that can provide lasting results and help you regain your bodies natural sleep cycle?
Your body and more importantly, your brain has many natural defense mechanisms that in most cases correct loss of sleep issues such as insomnia, and that is why more and more people who are suffering from insomnia have found long term relief from Neurofeedback, or EEG brain training.
Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses electroencephalography to provide signals that can be used by a person to receive feedback about brain activity. The process is non-invasive and simple; a few small sensors are placed on your head in precise locations to send brainwave activity signals to a computer, and then your brains activity is analyzed and sent back to your brain via tiny headphones placed in your ears.
Your brain then takes its brain activity information that is sent back in the form of almost inaudible, skips, scratches, and pauses and uses it to correct misfiring or misaligned brain function.
Neurofeedback or brain training is considered to be a viable, drug-free alternative that can help remediate insomnia.

Can neurofeedback be done whilst taking medication, or do you need to wait for a certain period of time to be drug free before starting neurofeedback?
Hi Judy, Yes, the Sleep Recovery Program can be done while on medication(s). We just ask that your primary care doctor be informed of your choice to do neurofeedback. The reason that both can be performed simultaneously is because medications mechanism of action is neuro-chemical, neurofeedback is bio-electrical.
