CES for Insomnia
Read Time: 10 Minutes
“Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep.” —Mayo Clinic
30% of American adults experience acute (short-term) insomnia while 10% endure chronic (long term) insomnia but regardless of the type, both are emotionally and physically challenging and often leave the sufferer tired, anxious and emotionally drained.
Those who suffer from insomnia often live with a myriad of symptoms, which can include:
• Inability or difficulty falling asleep at night
• Waking up often during the night
• Waking up before you’ve gotten enough sleep
• Not feeling well-rested after a good night’s sleep
• Daytime fatigue or desire to sleep
• Irritability, depression or anxiety
• Difficulty focusing and recalling information
• Anxiety and extreme worry about falling asleep
But what causes insomnia? There isn't a single cause of insomnia for everyone, though there are common causes that may be at the root of your struggles with insomnia.
In a nutshell, insomnia is not often THE problem; it is often a SYMPTOM of an underlying issue. It almost always occurs as a result of stress on the nervous system.
These sources of stress on the nervous system include stress (from daily life), traumatic events (like the death of a loved one), a demanding travel or work schedule, poor sleep habits, mental health disorders (like anxiety or depression), other medical conditions or illness, medications and substance abuse.
Early in the days of humanity, our nervous systems evolved to protect us from the dangers of early life on planet earth. Early humans had to contend with a number of serious threats in order to stay alive. The autonomic nervous system developed two branches: the sympathetic state, and the parasympathetic state.
The parasympathetic state is optimal for growth, development, repair, and day-to-day life. It is the state that allows our bodies to “rest and digest” and recover from the wear and tear of life.
On the other hand, the sympathetic state is essentially S.O.S. mode. You may have heard it called “fight or flight” mode. Its purpose is to save peoples’ lives when they are in legitimate danger—think running from a tiger! This state releases a cascade of hormones causing a faster heart rate, higher blood pressure, quicker reflexes, and increased blood flow to the appendages to help us run away from or fight off threats. Do those symptoms sound familiar?
Ideally, we’d spend most of our lives in the parasympathetic state and only experience the sympathetic state for short spans of times, recovering quickly.
However, this modern world has our nervous systems confused.
We’re not running from tigers, but our fast-paced lives, endless to-do lists, and the highly stimulating environment we inhabit is tricking our bodies into thinking we’re in constant danger. Cortisol (the stress hormone) runs high, kicking us into fight-or-flight mode and preventing the periods of resting, healing and digesting that our bodies really need.
When we spend too much time in the sympathetic state due to perceived (or real) stresses of life, insomnia often finds its way into our life as a result. Stress causes anxiety, which causes trouble sleeping, which causes more stress and fear. We never catch a break, and our nervous systems keep working in overdrive to try to keep us alive. Over time, it takes a real toll.
And the problem is, once we’re trapped in the cycle, it’s really hard to break free, hence the night after night of lying awake, unable to fall asleep and rest in a parasympathetic, stress-free state.
Unfortunately, if you go see your doctor about insomnia, a likely response you’ll receive is a prescription for medication. Like most conditions, the western medical world focuses on treating the SYMPTOM (I can’t sleep) versus the underlying cause (my nervous system is stuck in the sympathetic state, making it nearly impossible to sleep restfully).
Common medications for insomnia include Benzodiazepines, Nonbenzodiazepines and Suvorexant. All are Schedule 4 Controlled Substances, meaning they all have the potential to be addictive and create dependency. Due to their risks, they are only supposed to be used for a short period of time (2 weeks to 1 month). Even within that timeframe, they can cause dependency, as their sedative effect is extremely addictive. Obviously not a long-term solution for insomnia, which can lasts for months or even years.
So, aside from lifestyle changes to reduce stress (which are important) what are we to do? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is expensive (another treatment option for insomnia) and drugs aren’t ideal. Many people feel trapped and never seek help for their insomnia.
There has to be a better answer, right?
Yes. It’s called Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), and it’s exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Unlike medication, CES therapy actually addresses the root of the problem—neurochemical imbalances in the brain that are keeping you trapped in fight-or-flight mode. Studies have shown CES therapy to be more effective than medication at reducing both anxiety and insomnia.
What’s more, CES is incredibly safe, painless, side-effect free, non-habit forming, and backed by decades of insightful research and studies. AND, under the direction of a medical professional, you can treat yourself daily from the comfort of your own home!
CES is an FDA-registered treatment for anxiety disorders and insomnia. It is essentially the application of tiny electrical currents at the head or neck to treat anxiety and insomnia. “CES is a unique and viable ‘bioelectric’ approach which enhances the homeostasis of the biological central nervous system - the tendency for intrinsic balance within a system.” —CES Ultra
You see, our bodies (and specifically our nervous systems) are electric in nature. Electrical activity in the brain controls the production and management of neurochemicals. When electrical activity is balanced and consistent, the nervous system reverts to the parasympathetic state of rest, and the brain can function at its highest level. However, stress can disrupt normal electrical patterns in the brain, resulting in neurochemical imbalances that can cause anxiety, stress, and disrupted sleep-wake cycles.
Using gentle microcurrent, the CES Ultra indirectly stimulates tissue in the hypothalamic area of the brain with a well-studied, healing frequency, prompting the brain to return to a state of homeostasis and restoring proper chemical rhythm and balance.
CES directly addresses the stress-anxiety-insomnia cycle. Many users notice an immediate change after their first session, and others notice improvement within days to weeks. It leaves you feeling relaxed, yet focused and alert. It cuts down on the mental chatter, helping to calm obsessive thoughts and worries and leaving you in a state of clarity and calm which will naturally help you be able to sleep.
The best part is, after you stop using CES, the chemical balance you’ve achieved remains because the treatment is cumulative in nature. In other words, CES helps retrain your brain to return to optimal function and chemical balance all on its own.
Most Notable Benefits of CES Therapy include:
• Normalized sleep patterns
• Decrease in nervous tension and energy
• Decrease in frantic and anxious thought patterns
• More efficient sleep onset
• Elevated mood
• Feeling of relaxation and restfulness
• Fewer occurrences of irrational anger and irritability
• Reduced mood swings
• Improved impulse control
• Increased sense of balance and peace
• Calmer patterns of thought
• Heightened clarity
• Normalized information recall
• Accelerated learning
• Improved task concentration and focus
The CES Ultra is the only CES unit currently on the market with the proven technology and configuration employed in more than 100 scientific and research studies, including the Meta-Analysis conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health.
It is one of just a few FDA-registered CES Units shown to be safe and effective.
And the best part is? The CES Ultra costs less than the average price of 3 talk therapy sessions.
What if you could start feeling better in days, and see incredible changes in just a matter of weeks?
Research shows that such changes are possible, even probable, with the CES Ultra.
