Machine May Cure Insomnia


Oh thank God!

For those of you who don't know ... I have chronic insomnia. My listeners have given me every suggestion they can think of, and I've tried all sorts of medication and supplements. If this machine works It will be a Godsend.

Daily Mail:

Scientists have invented a technique which they say could help trigger deep sleep in the most chronic insomniac.

Using medical equipment, they stimulated the brain with harmless magnetic pulses.

These penetrate the nerves that control a type of deep sleep called "slow-wave activity" and made their brains produce these waves.

Researchers believe the same principles could be used to create a machine which can electronically stimulate a deep-sleep power nap. This mimics the restorative benefits of eight hours of rest.


The research comes out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but there is some skepticism. Who cares! At least someone has come up with something that is original, and may have a shot at working. With all of the hours, and money, invested into studying insomnia we still don't know what causes it, and we don't know how to cure it. Someone has to make a breakthrough sooner or later.

If this can be used on patients under 18, I'm DEFINITELY willing to give it a try as well. I'm a chronic insomniac just like you.
