I was a little surprised when I got a call from a luxury watch company called Philip Stein, asking if I’d run the clinical trials for their new product called The Sleep Bracelet.
I asked, “Have you improved an alarm or built a better sleep watch?”
They said no, they had produced a bracelet that harnessed the power of Schumann resonances, which are global electromagnetic resonances generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere, The Philip Stein sleep bracelet interacts with those resonances to help you sleep.
I don’t begin to suggest I can explain how that science works, but Philip Stein told me they’d figured out a way of leveraging it to help people sleep. So, because I was curious, I said I’d run the study.
Much to my surprise, virtually 96% of the people who participated reported some improvement in sleep.
Now, I suspect you know how unusual it is to get 96% of people to agree on anything, much less report it independently. But that is exactly what happened. The results were published in Sleep Diagnosis and Therapy 2010; V5 N5, 27-29. Here’s what people reported in a double-blind study:
64 % woke up more refreshed
61 % reported that dreaming was more pleasant
43 % fell asleep faster
43 % slept longer
18 % lay awake for less long periods
Those results are pretty promising. Take a look at the bracelet for yourself, it may just be the thing that helps you sleep a little better tonight.
