Stress, anxiousness, and depression are becoming worldwide epidemics, with anxiety and depression being singled out by the WHO as two of the most pressing global health issues of our times. Millions are affected, and the numbers are rising.
However, the stats don't matter when the pain, suffering, and disability are deeply personal, for both those suffering and for the loved ones who are watching with worry and feelings of helplessness.
The Auragen Light and Sound System delivers two effective and safe technologies that work synergistically to provide natural restoration of the brain and body's own ability and inclination to heal. Auragen programs can be used alone or safely in conjunction with other treatment modalities.
Auragen can support the brain by replenishing cellular energy, boosting the brain' immune system to move out toxins and debris, improving circulation, and increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients. Additionally, Auragen wavelengths stimulate the production of serotonin and help reset circadian rhythms, restoring regular and restful sleep, essential to any recovery. In addition to the many benefits, the sessions, in and of themselves, are usually experienced as deeply restful, relaxing, and restorative.
A safe, non-invasive technology based on decades of research and scientific development in the field of Biophotonics and incorporating some of the newest discoveries in neuroscience.
Stress is emotional or physical tension that causes the "fight or flight" response, a complex set of neurologic and hormonals reactions that can affect every aspect of body and mind. Typical symptoms include: agitation, frustration, nervousness, difficulty relaxing and quieting the mind, low self-esteem, loneliness, low energy, headaches, stomach upsets, tense muscles, rapid heartbeat, insomnia, colds and infections. If we cant find ways to turn off our biological and mental responses to stress, the result can be more serious and long term physical and mental health problems.
The WHO reports that 1 in 13 globally suffers from anxiety and that anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders worldwide, with women being twice as likely to be diagnosed and prescribed medication. According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 1 in 3 adolescents, ages 13 to 18, experience an anxiety disorder. Since 2007 these numbers have been rising steadily with anxiety disorders in children and teens increasing over 20%. In addition to genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events, certain factors are being recognized as contributing to the rise in adolescent anxiety: increased expectations and pressure to succeed; a world that feels scary and threatening; the influence of social media with more negative peer pressure and cyber bullying; isolation and feelings of loneliness.
Depression is linked to physical changes in the brain, from inflammation and oxygen restriction, to actual brain shrinkage. Inflammation and reduction in oxygen, can lead to cell death which results in decreased neurotransmitter functioning and reduced neuro-plasticity. The three parts of the brain that appear to be most affected are the hippocampus, amygdala, and prefrontal cortex. The hippocampus stores memories and regulates the production of cortisol. Long-term exposure to increased cortisol levels can slow the production of new neurons and cause the neurons in the hippocampus to shrink, leading to memory problems. Excess cortisol also shrinks the prefrontal cortex responsible for decision making. The amygdala, which facilitates our emotional responses, becomes enlarged and hyperactive, leading to irregular hormone release and sleep/ activity disurbances.
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a form of depression that occurs seasonally, typically ramping up in the fall and winter months, as the days get shorter and there is less sunlight. Common SAD symptoms include oversleeping, intense carbohydrate cravings, overeating and weight gain. Some people also have trouble concentrating and withdraw socially. Many of our physiological processes are directed by circadian rhythms, which are in turn calibrated by exposure to natural sunlight. Beyond regulating sleep/wake cycles, sunlight helps to keep levels of the protein SERT low, a crucial component in transporting the neurotransmitter serotonin, known to play a role in mood. Higher SERT levels are linked to low serotonin activity and increased depression. Light therapy is often the treatment of choice for SAD. In a 8 week study, light therapy alone and placebo were both more effective than medication, even for the treating moderate to severe depression*
PTSD is a serious and lasting consequence of traumatic ordeals that cause intense fear, helplessness, or horror. Victims and families of victims can develop PTSD, as well as war veterans, and emergency personnel. PTSD increases stress hormones, disrupts sleep, causes brain fog, clinical anxiety and depression. The amygdala (the brain's alarm system) becomes overactivated and simultaneously the prefrontal cortex (decision making and regulating responses) is negatively impacted. The cortical thickness of mid-anterior cingulate cortex (conflict and emotional awareness) is reduced. Chronic PTSD appears to damage the hippocampus (memory and cortisol release), making it smaller.
Burn-out is linked to workplace and lifestyle stress. This syndrome is different from ordinary stress and leads to serious physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion. Signs of burn-out include:
Alienation from work
Reduced functionality or performance
Feeling drained, unable to cope
Easily angered and irritable
Unable to focus
Misuse of food, alcohol, or drugs
Headaches and gut issues
Neuroimaging and neurochemistry studies suggest that a good night's sleep promotes mental and emotional resilience, while chronic sleep deprivation can lead to negative thinking and emotional vulnerability. Clinicians treating patients with mental health issues have viewed insomnia and other sleep disorders as symptoms. But studies suggest that sleep problems may raise the risk for, and even directly contribute to, the development of psychiatric disorders. Treating sleep disorders can help alleviate co-occurring mental health problems.
According to the CDC and other authorities, the impact of Covid and quarantine on mental health can not overestimated. Fear of the virus, social isolation, the loss of jobs and savings, an uncertain future, have each contributed to an alarming rise in the number of reports of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts, and a dramatic increase in clinical anxiety and depression, across all age groups. COVID survivors, themselves, are at a greater risk of developing mental illness, and being diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder within 90 days.
According to the NIH 20% of people who suffer concussions are vulnerable to developing PTSD and major depression. Those who have suffered multiple concussions are more 1.5 times more likely to experience anxiety and sleep disturbances. Additionally, diminished Gamma synchronization has been documented in cases of mild TBI, with a resulting loss in neuralconnectivity and possibly correlation to white matter abnormalities.

"I've been using my Mom's light. I'm only 11 years old and maybe you won't believe it, but I have a lot of stress. I always fall asleep. It helps me so much."
"Thank you so much for introducing me to this extraordinarily wonderful product. I love using it to gain energy when I'm depleted or to relax under stress and anxiety. It has had profound effects on alleviating my physical and emotional distress"
"Our son, Josh, had trouble with his sleep cycles, he was awake at night and fell asleep in school. We tried the light and saw his sleep begin to regulate. He's doing much, much better now"
“I use Renew before I go to work in the morning and the Calm at night. My work as an accountant is very stressful at times and I thank you again for the work/research in bringing this new and wonderful technology to us. I use to wake up every morning with anxiety however, this has completely taken it away!”
"I love my DreamSpa*, and cannot imagine being without it. I had some pretty significant depression and simply had no interests in anything. Now I have many interests and look forward to all the wonderful things I can be doing.”
*DreamSpa is the prior name and version of the Auragen System
"This light has changed my life! I sleep better, wake up energized and I am less stressed. I do not have any issues falling asleep anymore! My daughter who's 12 uses it about 3-4 times a week. She's always on the go and she says it helps her relax and calms her down!"
“I just ordered a second light. Here is the simple deal: This is for a dear friend, who has suffered from severe insomnia for seven years. After six days of using my light, she called me and said she got nine hours of sleep for the first time that she could remember. She was ecstatic. I am sending her a Dream Spa* of her own.”
*DreamSpa is the prior name and version of Auragen
"It has changed our lives. I have been struggling with feelings of anxiousness for most of my life and pills have never really been successful. Within days of using the light, I felt an immediate change. My mind was more clear, I felt more awake and I had an overwhelming sense of calm. My wife has been struggling with insomnia, the light hasn’t helped her to sleep, however she more energy throughout the day when she uses it in the morning. I can’t say enough great things about this product. It’s well worth the investment."
"What I can say about this light is that it's awesome!!! It has really assisted in my healing during some physically challenging times over the past year. First of all, I'm grateful I won't have another winter without it. I have a tendency to have bouts of depression because of lack of sun in winter. The dream spa saved me. It kept my spirits high and my immune system strong all winter long. Also when I can't sleep at night it truly, like a lull-a-by put's me to sleep easily. I'm grateful to have it in my home. "
“I purchased the light with my husband, Mike, in mind, to address sleep issues. As a an RN working different shifts, he is on his feet 12 hours at a time, barely seeing daylight except on days off which leaves him feeling exhausted mentally and physically. Mike was experiencing vicarious trauma as a first responder in the emergency room. He uses the Renew program to recharge his body and feels better mentally and physically after just 30 minutes, with the added benefit of going into meditation during the session."
“I had two sessions and I tell you I felt really great the day after. I have always had a problem sleeping at night, even as a child I used to lay awake for hours before I could fall off to sleep. After my second session, I went to bed at my usual time…I switched the television off and I swear, before the screen went blank I was gone. AND I didn't wake again until 7:00 a.m. This has never happened to me before, because I always wake up several times throughout the night. Got up at 8:30 a.m. and then the next night I slept so well I was up at 8:00 a.m.”
“When I purchased the light, 8 years ago, little did I know that it would soon became a sustainable support for the entire family. I use Renew program when I need a power nap and the Calm program when I’m feeling edgy. My kids used it through the years for test anxiety and school stress. Recently it helped me adjust to jet lag after a long flight! It's been a great investment in our health and well-being."
“The fact that I slept, seeing that I have been surviving on 2-3 hours of broken sleep daily for the past 5-6 years. 10 hours with just 2 breaks per night is nothing short of a miracle. I can now put positive input into my daily welfare.”
"The energy improvement has been profound on days I am exhausted from exercise or even lack of sleep. I rely on the DreamSpa to help me function on those days. I am noticing improved cognitive functioning and thinking skills.".
"I'm using the Calm and Relief programs. These sessions help me be calm, mentally clear, and pain free instead of feeling like I was hit by a truck."
