Evidence for Binaural Beats and ZENTone programs

Below is a list of evidence for binaural beats as a tool to help address anxiety, improve sleep, improve memory and reduce chronic pain.  Keep in mind that binaural beats or acoustic arrangements should not replace your medication. Consider things like ZENTones tools to help. Not everything will work all of the time for stress, sleep and anxiety et al, so it’s good to have a lot of different tools in your toolbox.

I will update this page as more evidence comes out for or against Binaural Beats. Remember, when you analyze studies, the most important part to look at is the Methods section. Meaning, what intervention was used, how they measured for an effect, and what population it was tested in. People tend to only focus on the “Results” section, but what happens in the results is entirely dependent on what happens in the Methods.
