A Case Study: Binaural Beats & Narcolepsy

Case Study - Binaural Beats and Narcolepsy

 

About a month ago I discovered an alternative “treatment” that’s helped my EDS (excessive daytime sleepiness) that I wanted to share with you. Mind you, this is not a cure, I haven’t found any scientific literature directly on it, and I only have my subjective experience, but I found it impactful enough that I wanted to share it with all of you.

The form of treatment is called binaural beats.

The best binaural beats I’ve found (by far) were Aubrey Marcus’s Binaural Beats Collection.

My favorite tracks are:

  1. Awakening Spirit (for alertness and concentration)
  2. Gamma Flow (for focus/flow state)
  3. Into the Void (for regimented power naps)

 

I’m running a test to see if any other people with narcolepsy find them as beneficial as I do. If you’re interested, please follow these 3 easy steps:

 

1. Purchase these three tracks from the Aubrey Marcus’s Binaural Beats Collection (you can purchase all of his 10 tracks for $35 or the 3 separately for a total of $15):

 

  1. Awakening Spirit (for waking up)
  2. Gamma Flow (for more energy during the day)
  3. Into the Void (for regimented power naps)

2. Use each track at least once, for the purpose described above (for waking up, etc.), and a minimum of one track per day for a week straight.

3. Then add your reporting/experience to this Google Form.

 

 

If there’s enough demand, I’ll collaborate with an audio engineer to have tracks designed specifically to help narcolepsy. If you have any questions about the case study, please email me directly at narcolepsycoach@gmail.com.

    My counselor says binaural beats are very helpful. I’m getting ready to begin 10 weeks of neuro-bio feedback (it incorporates binaural beats, which helps stimulate brain waves). I haven’t been diagnosed yet with narcolepsy, as I have to go for a second sleep study, but had an EEG showing my brain is awash in delta waves – an indicator of narcolepsy, and I have some sleep oddities that I attributed to my work ethic, outgoing nature, and the soul sucking fatigue I began to feel after being diagnosed with crohns. My fatigue has been so God awful since I gave birth a year ago that I need physical assistance to grocery shop, can hardly drive, and can’t seem to operate the kitchen stove. Anyway, try looking up biofeedback and neuro-feedback and you should find more scientific data regarding how binaural beats help to reset the brainwaves (thus lessening sleep disorder side effects, depression, anxiety, and ADHD symptoms.)

      Thank you for the suggestion Erica! I’ll be sure to research biofeedback for the scientific data on binaural beats.

        I got the narcolepsy diagnosis (with cataplexy) and began biofeedback this week. Biofeedback will run for 10 weeks (2xs a week). I’m looking forward to some relief.
