“I’ve been intending to write and just haven’t sat down to do it. One reason being I’m sleeping so much better I actually have a life again, thanks to you! It’s been just over a month now since I started your program and the change in my sleep is significant. I fall asleep right away. I still have problems with waking up, Most times I get back to sleep quickly and that’s really good for me.
I have anxiety issues that have been treated by drugs for much too long. I may have the anxiety because of the drugs! I’m on Clonazepam and Nortriptyline. For almost two years I’ve tried to get off these medications. I did this without the help of a professional, although I now know that they are clueless about how slowly one must taper.
I had sleeping problems for about 10 years, but one year they inexplicably became terribly worse. For 2 years I tried everything, sleeping pills, light therapy, behavior therapy, doctors, sleep studies, nothing helped. I could barely function at work and almost lost my job for it. I couldn’t work a full work-week so I always had to take leave without pay and my paychecks decreased substantially, creating a huge economic stress for me. I couldn’t maintain any kind of social life.
I suffered from depression as a result of everything. The extreme hopelessness I felt, believing there was no hope of things getting better was unbearable. Almost every day for 2 years I tried to do my own research on a cure, thinking maybe I missed something last time I looked for answers, maybe this one time I’ll find something different. I became suicidal but stumbled across the SleepTracks site and told myself this was my last time trying. If it didn’t work, I would take my own life.
I’ve been using SleepTracks for over a year now. I’m still amazed at how effective is has been for me when nothing else worked. It’s been so long since I felt like my life belonged to me, but I finally have it back. Words cannot express how grateful I am for your program and how it has changed my life, all I can say is thank you. So a million times over, and for the rest of my life…thank you.”
“I am absolutely amazed, Yan, that so many of my symptoms have cleared up in less than two weeks, and that is with the sound equipment in a different room to the one I sleep in! I now wonder if the whole cause of my collapse two years ago was insomnia. I have chased up so many alleys trying to solve my health problems, but with sleep tracks it’s simple, the real me has come back to life, and I had come to believe she was gone forever.
How can I thank you enough for THAT!
I am recommending you to someone every day, there are a lot of us out there.”
UPDATE by email 7 months later: “First you helped me so much with my sleep, I still listen EVERY NIGHT to Whole Night. And then of course my health issues started clearing up…”
“I was having alot of anxiety before sleeping and could not fall asleep. Had many many sleepless nights.
I was just playing with the program one afternoon and wanted to listen to the “Power Nap” track. Next thing I knew I was waking up! Fell right asleep without trying. After using the “Fall Asleep” track, I could fall asleep right away. But I didn’t realize that I shouldn’t be using that one all night. Switched to Whole Night and have been using it ever since.
I can go to sleep with ease now. I just lay and listen to the sounds and next thing I know I am waking up from a nice sleep. I don’t suffer from lack of sleep anymore. I keep an IPod with earbuds next to my bed and take it ALWAYS when traveling. The earbuds help block out ambient noise and the sleep tracks keep me sleeping sound 🙂
Thank you for your sleep tracks.”
“I had a baby in May last year and my mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer 5 months later. I think the sleep problems set in just after my baby was born. I did, off course, expect interrupted sleep with a baby, and the first 3 months were exhausting, but I was successful in teaching my baby to sleep and she has slept through the night since she was about 4 months old, which is when my sleep problems started… then came my mums diagnosis and nights apon nights of not falling asleep until 2-3am and waking at 6 with my baby. It is very hard to function as a mum on 3-4 hours of fitful sleep…
I have also been finishing my PhD and teaching at uni. Often, if I didn’t have to go into uni, I would stay in all day and not get out of my pajamas. I was very reluctant to take sleeping pills as I have read lots of bad things about them in the course of my studies. I did, however, start to rely on a strong headache tablet which was the only thing that I had access to that seemed to calm me down enough to sleep. I was feeling very much like a rat on a wheel, just a futile and endless spin. My husband was getting really worried about me and my difficulty was putting a lot of strain on him and our relationship.
I found your website about 2 and a half weeks ago whilst researching a wellness course that I had been asked to write for 2nd year university students. I was a bit skeptical at first and didn’t know what I was getting myself into…
“I still owe you a testimonial. My background as an M.D. gives me a lot of facts and insight into my own sleep problems…
I had been taking prescription sleep medications [Ambien] for over 5 years. It stopped working and I simply took more. Still did not work. Nights were very difficult — medication put me to sleep but I would wake up after 2-3 hours with a strong sympathetic response (fast pulse, pounding heartbeat, wide awake alert). It was a very difficult cycle to break. I was really in bad shape due to lack of sleep.
But now it is Sleep Tracks into the ear buds all night. And I no longer have to depend on anything synthetic to sleep.”
“When you got back to me the first time I was skeptical about the sleep tracks. You know there is so many con presentation around, but I was curious about it. Also I was worried about the long term effects of sleeping medication. The medication prescribed contain 20 mg Temazepan as active ingredient.
I used the Insomnia Buster track during the first day and that night I had a peaceful night’s sleep. I listen to the track in the evening before going to bed and then enjoy a good night’s rest.
I have also successfully downloaded the Anxiety Ease track from the AnxietyEasy bonus page. To date I have not used any of the other tracks but will come around to it some time.
I don’t know if there is any other people in South Africa that are using the SleepTracks but it will be interesting if there is any other people. I will surely recommend it to other people who suffer from insomnia.”
“My name is Susan Funk and I am 45 years old. I have been suffering from insomnia for the past seven years. I have no trouble falling asleep but I wake up multiple times and do not get the restful sleep that you talk about. I am under the care of a doctor who is balancing my hormones to get that piece of the puzzle right.
I have been using sleeptracks for about 3 weeks now. I noticed a difference right away. I began with the Anxiety Ease and felt better in one session. I have used all of the tracks and what really works best for me is use Falling Asleep and then Whole Night. I have been able to get some really deep sleep cycles and have been sleeping better than I have in years. I don’t think everything is perfect yet but I intend to continue with sleeptracks. I would recommend sleeptracks to anyone with insomnia.”
“I purchased your Sleep Track program in November 2011. I was experiencing waking up in the middle of the night without being able to get back to sleep for quite a while. I followed your directions about lisenting to Whole Night every day for 2 months. I am extremely happy to report that I can now sleep well and go back to sleep easily when waking in the middle of the night.
I routinely play the Whole Night cd on a repeat setting throughout the night. 99% of the time I am able to sleep 7+ hours. The few rare occurrences that I cannot fall back to sleep are isolated incidents that are followed by a good night’s rest the following night. THANK YOU GREATLY!
P.S. I also enjoy using your Anxiety Ease cd when meditating during the day.”
“I was diagnosed Bipolar and given sleeping pills (Lunesta). They worked for about a year and then I stopped sleeping all of a sudden. I tried everything–meds (Ambien, rosarem, trasidone, sonata, etc) and over the counter junk (unisom, tylenol pm). I felt terrible and everything was getting worse and worse. I even tried another sleep CD program that just made the mania of my bipolar off the charts. What I was doing was actually making me sleep worse and feel terrible.
When I saw the SleepTrack information I thought it looked like a good, solid, comprehensive program that made a lot of sense. I wasn’t sure it would work for me because of my bipolar but I was willing to try it. I put the mp3 on and after a couple of nights I was falling asleep in five minutes or less! I have used it every night since–almost a year now. I love it. I wake up feeling rested and refreshed, like when I was in my 20’s. Thank you SleepTracks!”
