People who experience insomnia should consider taking a melatonin supplement to help them improve their sleep.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, these supplements have been shown to be effective in helping people get into better sleep and waking patterns.
However, sometimes individuals find themselves at a loss for how to get more rest.
Now, researchers from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center believe that individuals may be able to use music waves to balance brain activity and help people get to sleep.
The researchers explained that the brain is made up of left and right hemispheres that need to work in balance in order for a person to have a healthy sleep pattern. However, trauma or stress can causes these hemispheres to become imbalanced, and the scientists wanted to determine if musical tones could help correct this issue.
The scientists used technology called high-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM), which involved revolving in a zero-gravity chair while sensors were placed on the scalp to emit a musical tone that would hopefully adjust brain frequencies.
This method was found to be fairly effective in improving insomnia, but researchers said far more research is needed before they can come to any definite conclusions. For now, people should stick to melatonin supplements.
