Probably not unlike most of you who are reading this, I use my ICES device to help with sleep. However, I must preface this with the observation that I have mostly used the anti-inflammatory effects of the PEMF on different areas of my body that hurt when I lay down to sleep, thus relieving my pain and allowing me to sleep better.
Honestly, I experimented with many different settings before noticing that my body responds greatly to the setting on the M1 of Schumann resonance #4, Power 5. For myself, personally, this setting seems to have the greatest relaxing effect of all.
I first discovered this while trying an experiment around my nasal passages.
I use a CPAP machine to sleep and I am asthmatic. The asthma causes a constant state of inflammation in the lungs, as well as, on occassion, in the trachea and nasal passages.
Basically, I noticed that over many years of using a CPAP (27), My nasal passages were becoming more and more irritated, and it was harder to sleep with constant air pressure. So, decided to place the ICES pads on either side of my nose, with the aforementioned settings. I immediately noticed my nasal passages opening and relaxing, and even felt pressure relief in my sinuses. This helped me to breath better and sleep better.
I did notice two other effects - with the PEMF resonating at the frequencies it does on Schumman #4, I noticed that it not ony let me breath better, but I fell asleep faster and slept deeper with the ICES pads in this position. I also noticed that the more rapid frequencies in the sequence seemed to have a greater relaxing effect on nasal passages.
I have now later found, through an elimination diet, that much of what I was eating was greatly affecting the quality of my sleep and causing more inflammation in my body. Now that I have eliminated potatoes, tomatoes, wheat, and sugar, I sleep MUCH better, and I mainly use my M1 on aches and pains in muscles when I lay down to sleep.
