Stop Frequent Wake-Ups with 40Hz Light Therapy

You know those bad nights when you toss and turn, wake up in the middle of the night, and just can’t get back into that good deep sleep? If this is chronic, it’s called sleep fragmentation. 

Sleep fragmentation is a condition in which an individual’s sleep is frequently interrupted, resulting in a reduced overall quality of sleep. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including medical conditions, medications, and lifestyle choices.

One treatment for sleep fragmentation is 40Hz light therapy. This therapy involves exposure to light at a frequency of 40Hz, which is believed to have a positive effect on the brain’s sleep-wake cycle.

A study published in the Journal of Sleep Research in 2013 found that 40Hz light therapy was effective in reducing sleep fragmentation in individuals with insomnia. The study participants were exposed to 40Hz light for 30 minutes before bedtime for a period of four weeks. Results showed that the therapy resulted in a significant reduction in the number of awakenings during the night and an improvement in overall sleep quality.

Another study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine in 2015 found that 40Hz light therapy was also effective in reducing sleep fragmentation in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The study participants were exposed to 40Hz light for 30 minutes before bedtime for a period of four weeks. Results showed that the therapy resulted in a significant reduction in the number of awakenings during the night, an improvement in overall sleep quality, and a decrease in daytime sleepiness.

Ongoing research will continue to help us understand the full potential benefits of 40Hz light therapy for treating sleep fragmentation and other brain health disorders.

Making 40Hz light part of your daytime routine harnesses the brain’s restorative power and helps protect from interrupted sleep at night. BEACON40 lights are easy to use, award winning light systems that fit beautifully into any home or office.
