Free of drugs, chemicals or stimulants, Silent Nights is clinically proven to improve quality and length of sleep without causing that groggy feeling the next day. You’ll wake up feeling well rested, more energetic and better prepared to make the most out of life.
Why is Healthy Sleep So Important? Sleep deficiency is tied to various health issues, including fatigue, reduced muscle mass, slower metabolism, increased belly fat and sagging skin. And new research shows that a lack of sleep is a rising problem, especially in the U.S. where between 30 and 50 percent of all people have insomnia or complain of poor sleep.1
However, insufficient sleep is not exclusively a U.S. problem, and poses similar concerns in other industrialized countries such as the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany and Canada. In fact, evidence suggests that the proportion of people who suffer from a lack of sleep is rising. Further, that this trend is likely associated with lifestyle factors related to a modern, fast-paced society.2

What Is Phototherapy? The science of phototherapy, which has been around for about 100 years, uses light to improve the health of the body. And modern forms of phototherapy such as Low Level Laser Therapy, which helps reduce wrinkles and treat other more serious skin conditions, are very well understood scientifically.
But this idea is nothing new. As far back as two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks had a center for studying the effects of different colored lights on the body. Even the ancient Egyptians, who promoted health by focusing sunlight through colored glass on certain areas of the body, understood this concept.
How Our Phototherapy Patches Work Your body emits heat in the form of infrared light. Our patches are designed to trap this infrared light when placed on the body, which causes them to reflect particular wavelengths of light. (see Usage Tab for placement instructions). This process stimulates specific points on the skin that signal the body to produce health benefits unique to each LifeWave patch.
What Makes one LifeWave Patch Different than Another? Each patch is exclusively designed to reflect particular wavelengths of light that stimulate specific points on the skin. This enables each patch to provide unique health benefits (e.g. pain relief, increased energy, etc.). No drugs or chemicals enter your body.
How Does This Relate to Healthy Sleep? Silent Nights reflects particular wavelengths of light, which stimulate specific points on the skin that trigger the production of melatonin in the body.
Silent Nights Study Results Silent Nights is clinically proven to increase length of sleep by 66 percent, and since its release has helped people all over the world achieve better rest.1 Subsequent to its release, a pilot study conducted by Dr. Norm Shealy concluded, “The safety and results obtained in the study of Silent Nights suggests that these patches may be one of the preferred potential approaches to significant improvement in sleep.”

Did You Know? Diphenhydramine is an over-the-counter medicine commonly taken for allergy symptoms. Because one of its side effects is drowsiness, Diphenhydramine is also an active ingredient in most popular over-the-counter sleep aids.
While Diphenhydramine helps those with mild, infrequent insomnia, there’s no data to support that it promotes good, healthy sleep. Diphenhydramine can also cause unwanted sleepiness in the morning, difficulty urinating, and confusion or delirium.
