View Full Version : Sleep Patches ?
09-21-2007, 12:11 AM
A friend called and told me about this cuz she knows I have a severe problem. I had never heard of such a thing. Been looking it up. Just because it is FDA approved does not mean it is safe IMO. They also have Energy Patches.
They list the ingredients benignly as water, amino acids, "organics" applied to some plastic thingy and in the case of the energy patch they also list sugars. I barely understand it.
Does anybody know anything about these products?
Know anyone they have worked well for? Anyone gotten toxic from them?

I use these and they help a lot. There have been a lot of independent tests showing that nothing enters the body. They work in a similar way to acupuncture. They are placed on acupuncture points and energetically give your body messages. The company sells other patches, which have been tested by the Olympics Anti-Doping Commission and others. Their other patches have been used by Olympic swimmers and professional athletes. I have used their patches for a couple years and have been very happy with them. You may have to try a couple different acupuncture points to see which ones work best for you and you need to be hydrated. Let me know if you have any other questions about them. Also, I make them last a little longer by using them two nights instead of one.

I just noticed your last question. There have been no side effects reported. Since nothing goes into your body, there is no way to get toxic. I have used their sleep patches, energy patches, glutithione patches, and carnosine patches. I have read a lot of the research and haven't found anything negative.

Thanks! Wish I had known about this years ago! Maybe I could have kept my job!
Sound therapy also works very well.
Check out the cd (also available in mp3) 'Sound Sleep' from this company (they also have other sleep cd's): http://www.brainsync.com/
My partner and I use it and it works like a charm.
The only thing you need is a little cd/mp3 player, headphones and off you go!
They have a lot of other cd's for other issues as well.

I usually put them between my eyebrows instead of the point they suggest. There are points that are better if you have trouble falling asleep and other points that are better if you have trouble staying asleep. I don't remember what the points are, but there is an acupuncturist named Ron Morefield that wrote a book about the patches and he has done a lot of research on the best place to put the patches for different needs.

I also have a problem of having to get up every hour to pee. (Sorry but I need help.) This has been going on for years and aggravates the sleep problem. The doctors have not been able to solve it. Nothing I have tried stops it. Do you happen to know anything for that problem?

Sorry, I don't know anything to help that. There may be a way to place the patches to help, but I don't know enough about acupuncture to know where or if it would help. If I find out anything I will let you know. I have to get up more often than I would like, but not as often as you do. The patches seem to make it a little easier to go back to sleep after bathroom trips and I may get up a little less often with them, but I'm not really sure about that.

Thanks. Maybe now that I have put it out there someone else will come along and tell us what we can do to solve.
