Wake Forest Baptist conducts clinical study for insomnia using new technology
Date:6/30/2011

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. June 30, 2011 Insomnia is the most prevalent sleep disorder, affecting up to 50 percent of the adult population in the United States on a weekly basis.

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is conducting the first ever, randomized, controlled clinical research study in the country using Brainwave Optimization to treat people with insomnia. Brainwave Optimization is a non-invasive technology that helps the brain balance itself for optimal performance.

The study is made possible by a research grant from Brain State Technologies, a company based in Scottsdale, Ariz., whose founder developed Brainwave Optimization or what is technically known as High-resolution, Relational, Resonance-based, Electroencephalic Mirroring (HIRREM).

"Energetic imbalance of the brain, with dominance of the right or left hemispheres, can be seen in conditions such as trauma or stress, for which insomnia is often an accompanying symptom," said Charles Tegeler IV, M.D., professor of neurology and the primary investigator for the study. "This new technology is intended to facilitate greater balance and harmony in brain functioning, which may result in improved symptoms."

The human brain is made up of the left and right hemispheres that work together as parallel processors with balanced progression from front to back as well. When a person undergoes trauma or a major stressor, their autonomic response for survival kicks in, and the brain can become unbalanced as a result. That occurs naturally. However, sometimes the brain doesn't balance itself back, Tegeler explains, and that can lead to adverse effects, such as trouble sleeping or anxiety.

"In effect, we are allowing the brain to look at itself in the mirror and see itself in an optimized, energetic state," Tegeler said. "Those areas that are out of balance then begin to work toward a more functional state."

Tegeler said the study is focusing only on insomniacs beca
