What Is The Insomnia Program?

Welcome to my Insomnia Program review, more specifically the Blue Heron Insomnia Program.

It’s probably no surprise that approximately 50% of adults have reported having occasional symptoms of insomnia. This also explains why it is the most common of all sleep disorders.

Furthermore, 10% of people have experienced chronic insomnia, which happens to be far more prevalent in women than men.

I think it’s important to distinguish that insomnia isn’t just about having trouble falling asleep, which many people assume.

The symptoms of insomnia also include waking up several times during the night, waking up extremely early and not being able to go back to sleep, and it even encompasses feeling exhausted the following day even if you feel as though you got a respectable amount of sleep the previous night.

The Blue Heron Insomnia Program claims that it will provide you with a simple and natural “sleep trick” that can place you into a deep, restful sleep in as little as 12 minutes.

Pretty big claims, especially for someone like me who has struggled with insomnia for over 10 years.

So, I had to investigate further.

Who Is Behind The Insomnia Program?

The company behind the Insomnia Program is Blue Heron Health News and more importantly their CEO, Christian Goodman. (I have spoken about both Christian and Blue Heron previously on this website).

Blue Heron Health News has built up a great reputation and they currently offer 24 natural health guides and look to continually add more on an ongoing basis.

Their guides cover issues such as, snoring, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gout, arthritis, IBS, weight loss, erectile dysfunction, migraine and headache, acid reflux, and many more.

Oh, and obviously Insomnia.

Their aim is to address every health issue you could possibly think of and provide their readers with completely natural solutions.

Now, having previously reviewed a Blue Heron product I am somewhat perturbed.

You see, the sales page (or video sales page) for the product has Christian discussing his history with insomnia, and then he talks about his relentless research into finding a cure. He spent decades reading various clinical and medical studies, articles and websites, until he finally discovered something that he felt could really work.

Hmm… you see, this all started to sound very familiar to me, and in fact the information that Christian provided was almost identical to the other product I have reviewed on this website (Stop Snoring and Sleep Apnea).

Before I go any further, I don’t want to detract from the actual products – I have purchased both, tried them, and found them to be excellent.

I also don’t want to question Christian’s honesty – But, I mean, if he’s written 24 guides, has he conducted decades of research into each condition because he has personally suffered from them all?

Just how unlucky can one guy be?

Don’t get me wrong, my issues have been with sleep disorders, and my reason for purchasing and reviewing insomnia and snoring products are from personal experience, and the reason I also focus on sleep apnea is because it’s an affliction my late mother suffered from.

So, I completely understand the philosophy behind studying and researching various health issues in order to find a natural cure.

I just feel Christian’s advertising methods are a little circumspect, shabby and dated (I’m thinking 1990s late-night infomercial) – the sales pitch to get you excited and then hooked. You’ll understand more when you go through to the sales page.

However, as I’ve said, this doesn’t take anything away from any of Blue Heron’s products.

I have purchased 4 in total (just out of interest you understand) and I have found them all to be thoroughly well-researched, well-thought-out, clearly written, and above all They Work.

So, please just lay off the cheese in the sales pitch and let the product talk for itself.

How Does The Insomnia Program Work?

The Blue Heron Insomnia Program is based around a downloadable audio tape and guide (you can order the program in CD format as well).

The audio tape is separated into 2 distinct sections and uses scientifically proven relaxation techniques to help you sleep.

One thing I will say is that alternative methods to treat insomnia are gaining more popularity, such as sound and light therapy. You will also find a wealth of products in the marketplace that use specific frequency coding, isochronic tones, and binaural beats.

All of these methods have been clinically tested, mainly for increasing focus and attention, while reducing stress. However, it is now apparent that these relaxation techniques can help to improve the overall quality of sleep.

Anyway, back to the program.

As I’ve mentioned the audio comes in 2 sections or phases:

Phase 1

This phase is approximately 25 minutes long and is aimed at taking your brain waves through the natural process of falling asleep.

Allow me to explain:

Your brain waves need to relax from a beta state (awake and focused), or an alpha state (deeply relaxed, but still focused) or unfortunately for many of us, a gamma state (greater mental activity such as being stressed or anxious), before we can sleep.

The aim is to get our brain waves to theta waves (the dream state) and delta waves (deep sleep).

Okay, are you still with me?

Back to the program again.

So, the first 25-minute audio will instruct you to go through eye exercises, mind exercises, and relaxation techniques. These are all aimed at getting you out of alpha, beta and gamma brain wave states, depending on where you are in daily brain wave activity.

This should help you to gently drop off.

The reason Christian mentions “12 minutes” on the sales page is because we typically sleep in cycles. There are 5 stages to each sleep cycle (some people will claim there is 4, but I believe there are 2 separate stages of deep sleep), and each complete sleep cycle (all 4-5 stages) will last approximately 90-120 minutes.

The first stage of the sleep cycle is very light sleep when you are slowly drifting off, but can be awoken very easily. For someone who doesn’t suffer from insomnia this sleep cycle shouldn’t ever really last for more than about 15 minutes, sometimes less.

I believe the main aim of the Insomnia Program is to get you to this first sleep cycle as quickly as possible by using techniques to help you relax.

Phase 2

Phase 2 lasts for approximately 50 minutes and is a mixture of relaxing sounds and music, which will help you to drift off peacefully into deep sleep and REM sleep.

It is these two final stages of sleep where both the body and mind can repair and rejuvenate itself, thus allowing you to wake up the following morning feeling totally refreshed.

If you’ve ever woken up feeling exhausted, even though you feel you “slept” for an adequate number of hours, it’s because you didn’t get enough deep sleep.

Christian also claims that the Insomnia Program works completely independently of any outside influence.

We are told that in order to get a great night’s sleep that we need to concentrate on good sleep hygiene. This typically involves getting enough daylight during the day, exercising regularly, watching what we eat, having a specific bedtime routine, etc.

However, the program asserts that the audio recordings, and these alone, will help you get a great night’s sleep.

What Did I Like About The Blue Heron Insomnia Program?

Allow me list the advantages of this program as I see it:

  • I am a fan of Blue Heron Health News products. I have purchased a number of these previously and have always found them to be excellent and they tend to follow through on the promises that they make.
  • The program uses a number of techniques that have been scientifically proven to help treat insomnia.
  • It is a completely natural treatment for insomnia. So, no need for medication or prescriptions (and of course, suffering with possible side effects).
  • The program comes with an iron-clad, 60-day money back guarantee. So, you can purchase the product, try it for a whole two months, and if you aren’t satisfied for any reason whatsoever you can request a no-questions asked refund.
  • You can download the product instantly, which means you can get to work on treating your insomnia, and will hopefully enjoy the best night’s sleep you’ve had in years, tonight.

What Didn’t I like About the Insomnia Program?

There’s not much, although I did mention something earlier:

I’m not a fan of some of Blue Heron’s advertising and sales pages. As I’ve said, it’s all a little cheesy and 1990s late-night informcialesque (is that a word?). Okay, Christian I understand that you are also a marketer as well as someone who produces health guides, but still.

The program costs $49 which seems a little on the high side to me, especially when compared to some of the other insomnia digital products I have reviewed on this website. However, with that being said, if the product helps you to overcome insomnia, I guess you can’t really put a price on that.

My Verdict

I thoroughly enjoyed going through the Blue Heron Insomnia Program and it definitely worked for me.

I like the fact that it uses techniques that are backed by science and that it concentrates on the brain waves, as this is of the utmost importance when it comes to falling asleep. Plus more importantly it helps you to stay asleep, and enjoy a peaceful night’s rest.

There’s a 60-day money back guarantee, so if for any reason the program doesn’t work for you then simply request a refund.

The fact you have two months to request your money back speaks volumes about how confident Christian is in the product. I mean, let’s face facts, if you’re not falling asleep quickly and sleeping soundly within a few weeks, then there’s obviously an issue with the product.

The Blue Heron Insomnia Program gets a definite thumbs up from me and with the 60-day money back guarantee you really have nothing to lose by trying the program out today.

  1. Insomnia and sleep disorders are extremely a health problem in our society today, you did an awesome job reviewing this insomnia product. I have noticed the health products have increased dramatically in price, so do you have any idea why?


    • Hi Jeff,

      Always good to hear from you and thank you so much for your kind words.

      Yes, very well said, Insomnia and sleep disorders in general are definitely prevalent in today’s society.

      As for your question, I can only voice my opinion – I would guess that cost of heathcare products will always rise for various factors.

      These include, increase in population year-on-year and mental health issues (often related to sleep) have been dramatically on the rise since 2011. Just these two factors alone will put far more stress on our healthcare services and the requirement for medications, and this has to be funded somehow.


  2. Thanks for sharing your review and views about this program. Insomnia is something we all encounter from time to time. Unfortunatelly, some people have even developed a chronic disorder. Luckily, there are programs like this that could help to fall asleep faster. I’ve heard of Blue Heron company, which is a big plus. And I too like the fact that the program is based on lowering your brain activity to theta and delta levels naturally so you could fall asleep faster and without using any artificial stuff like pills, etc. Thanks for sharing and keep thee good work!

    • Hi Ivan.

      Thank you so much for your comments and also for your kind words.

      Yes, Blue Heron (and Christian Goodman) being behind the product is a big plus for me (although they could do with working on modernizing their sales pages a little).

      Plus I’m in complete agreement about using natural methods and working on brain wave activity. I often think that people are too quick to turn to sleeping pills and other medications in order to help them sleep, but in truth this does more harm than good in the long run.

      In fact, the use of sleeping pills can eventually lead to insomnia, i.e. you are unable to sleep without them or you even find that you need to increase dosage as the pills are no longer having the desired effect.


  3. Hi Partha, thanks for this review. How do you listen to the program, with earphones or with little loudspeakers? I ask, because I don’t want to disturb my husband, and on the other hand am not too pleased with something in my ears half the night. And I suppose I can’t start in another room, since I should be lying in bed. Oof, decisions 🙂 But I am really interested how you solve this?

    • Hi Hannie,

      Great to hear from you.

      Well I went round this a completely different way, as I purchased the product in order to review it. Plus I only have the occasional bout of insomnia nowadays, as I already use some of the methods you will find in this program anyway.

      So, for me, yes I always listened to the audios with earphones, but the first few times were during the day and whie I was wide awake (probably not my best idea).

      My aim was to take notes and to understand the reasons we are being asked to do certain things and they all made a lot of sense to me. And as I say, I have used similar methods before (although the Insomnia Program is completely unique in style).

      However, when I first tried the program as I was going to bed I still wore earphones. With that said, I typically wear ear plugs anyway (noisy neighbours and noisy street I’m afraid), so it may take a bit of getting used to for you.

      With that said, I became fairly familiar with the techniques after a few nights and could pretty much remember what I had to do. So, I generally went back to the audio maybe only once a week just to ensure I was still doing everything correctly, and that I hadn’t picked up any bad habits.


  4. Hi Partha,

    There are so many people all over the world who have insomnia, my girlfriend is one of them. However, it is not as bad as it used to be, she is sleeping a lot better. But, with the stresses of her old job, and then when lockdown happened, she started having an issue with sleep again.

    From your review, I’m getting the impression that this program is a good fit, and if my girlfriend’s sleep starts to become scattered again, then I think it might be worth investing in this program.

    I will let you know how she goes and if we do invest in the program. Following that I will ask her to give her own review of it.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.

    All the best,


    • Hi Tom,

      Great to hear from you.

      I think what your girlfriend has been through is extremely common for a lot of people. In fact, stress is likely to be one of major contributing factors of insomnia for many of us.

      I know for a fact that it was for me, and once again it came about because of work pressures from a previous job. I found it hard to turn off in the evenings and I’d be playing work scenarios over and over in my mind, and for some reason my thought processes and negative self-talk increased as soon as my head hit the pillow.

      You’ve mentioned lockdown as well, and I’m sure that the stresses of this and what the world has been through over the past few months is affecting how a lot of us sleep. Simply being unable to live our lives how we normally do can put a lot of pressure on any individual and the constant worry of what’s going to happen next will impact on our daily lives.

      And this typically will cause problems with sleeping once again.

      I will say that I found this to be a superb program and it really does open you’re eyes to how stress can affect your ability to sleep.


  5. Hello Partha. I am so happy I can across this review you have done on the Blue Heron Insomnia Program. My husband have suffered with insomnia for most of this adult life, and I have see how this has effected his health. There are so many products out there that claim they work, unfortunately most just don’t. My husband have tried many types of programs and products. While some work for a short time, other don’t work at all.
    So to find a review on a product, from someone who have actually tried it and says it works, is a breath of fresh air. I will be sending this on, and hopefully my husband will find it works for him too. Thank you

    • Hi Felicity,

      Thank you ever so much for your comments.

      I really feel for your husband and totally understand both his and your own plight.

      As you’ve mentioned his insomnia has also affected his health and over the long-term this unfortunately usually will be the case.

      I guess many people in his situation opt for what I would call a short-term solution, i.e. sleeping pills. However, in truth, I’m not a fan of medication and I believe they cause more harm than good.

      I can definitely recommend Blue Heron’s insomnia program, as someone who has been through the rough ride that is caused by insomnia and severe sleep deprivation.

      Please do pass on the details to your husband, as this is without doubt one of the best ways to cure insomnia naturally. It is a method that works on relaxing the mind and body to put you in the “right place” to get a decent night’s sleep over-and-over again.

      Of course, I always recommend also looking at what you do during the day as well, as there are various factors that may impact on how well we sleep at night. Just ensuring that you’re getting pleanty of fresh air and exercise during the day, watching what you eat and drink, and switching off all electronics an hour or so before bedtime can also do wonders.

      I really hope your husband gets through this.


  6. All my life I only had to lie down, close my eyes, and I was gone to dream land within 2 minutes, just like that. I could even sleep on the floor, it did not matter, I never had any trouble sleeping. … Until three years ago … I was under so much emotional stress that for the first time in my life I suffered insomnia. It took ages to fall asleep, and every night I woke up at 2 or 3 am and it was impossible to go back to sleep. During months I slept for about 2 or 3 hours a night, which affected my daily life; and I was desperate to find a solution … This went on for a very long time, perhaps 7 – 8 months. I wish I had known about this program back then.
    Eventually, I got over it, and now I sleep like a baby again 😉 I’m so relieved!
    The imsonmia program sounds like a great program and I like that it’s backed by science. A two-month money back guarantee also speaks highly about the product’s owner’s confidence and the quality of the product. It must be good, then.
    I really hope I never have to go through insomnia again, but just in case, it’s certainly good to know about this program. It would definitely provide a quicker solution 🙂

    • Hi Christine,

      Great to hear from you.

      I must say I envy you, I don’t think I’ve ever been about to fall asleep that quickly, and especially on the floor, LOL.

      The fact that you mention that you struggled with sleep due to emotional stress is no real surprise to me. To be honest, I would say that stress is probably the number one cause for insomnia.

      I know from my own experiences that I would toss and turn, unable to sleep for the vast majority of the night, simply because I was playing scenarios over-and-over in my head. These could be work-related, home and personal-related, or even insignificant things that I had allowed to impact on my day. Unfortunately, I just felt highly stressed out a lot of the time, and of course this was affecting my sleep.

      This is what I like about this program. It looks to deal with emotional stress in a completely natural way and works on calming the mind and relaxing the body so that we are able to get a decent night’s rest. It’s definitely my number one tip for a great night’s sleep.


  7. Thank you so much for this in depth review. I have suffered from insomnia for as long as I can remember and nothing has really worked. I take sleeping pills now which do work, but I would prefer to not take them. I am very interested in trying a product like this and very much appreciate the thorough and honest review!

    • Hi Danielle,

      Thank you for your comments.

      I’ve mentioned many times on this website that I’m not a fan of sleeping pills (or any medication for that matter), as I feel they do more harm than good in the long-term.

      Sleeping pills are just like any other drug to be honest – eventually the body gets used to them and they stop having the desired effect, which typically leads us to up the dosage.

      I am a fan of natural methods to deal with most ailments and conditions (where possible) and the Blue Heron Insomnia Program definitely looks to deal with insomnia in a completely natural way.


  8. That’s a very interesting review Partha and one that certainly resonates with both my wife and I. Blue Heron would appear to have been around for some time now and as you yourself have tried a handful of their programs I’ll take it on face value that they definitely tick the box for you.

    I wasn’t actually aware that there were up to 5 stages within the sleep cycle – I had thought that there were only 3 with the deep sleep one in the middle being the key. I wonder what impact external factors have on influencing insomnia – a partner that has breathing challenges and is a very loud snorer. This psychologically impacts on me so I’d question if I was able to get into the right frame of mind to effectively embrace Blue Heron’s Insomnia Program.

    Like you I may just take the plunge and try this one out – any and all assistance will definitely be well received.

    Thanks for sharing – a good read. Jason.

    • Hi Jason,

      Thank you for your comments and you bring up a number of very interesting points.

      Firstly, most people (scientists included) tend to state that there are 4 stages to sleep, and indeed there are in fact 3 very distinct names I guess, which is why you’re also correct in your thinking.

      I like to look at them as 5 different entities because I feel we are at different stages in the sleep process in each and different things happen to the brain and the body during these 5 stages. The way I look at them is – very light sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, very deep sleep, and the most famous, REM sleep. I’ve previously written about the 5 stages of sleep.

      I also note that you have mentioned “a partner that has breathing challenges and is a very loud snorer”. It’s difficult to give an “official” diagnosis based on this description, although this does very much sound like sleep apnea.

      Sleep apnea should always be dealt with asap as it can lead onto other health conditions and concerns. If it is mild to moderate sleep apnea then certain lifestyle changes and relaxation and breathing techniques could be the answer. You can check the Stop Bang Score and also read this review.

      As for Blue Heron’s Insomnia Program, I truly am very impressed by what it has to offer and I do highly recommend this as a natural cure for insomnia.


  9. Wow, I am reading about the blue Heron Insomnia Programme for the first time from your blog post as I have never heard of it before. I am aware of insomnia and other sleeping issues some people experience and what I found really interesting here in your is your explanation about how our brain waves need to relax from a beta state, an alpha state or a gamma state before we can sleep. With the aim to get our brain waves to theta and delta. I have known about this but not understood it! The way you explained it in your post gave me a ‘aha’ moment 🙂 thank you – I really understand these different sleep states better now.

    This is an informative review and just reading, learning and understanding this topic has got me really interested in this product, so I know where to purchase it – here of course 🙂 Thanks for this post. You have provided great value in your review. Ola

    • Hi Ola,

      Thank you for your comments.

      I wasn’t actually previously aware of the influence that brain wave activity had on sleep. However, once I researched this subject in more detail, well let’s say it seems obvious now.

      My major issue with insomnia was an overactive mind just as I was going to bed, and initially no matter what I tried I just couldn’t quieten down my mind.

      Admittedly, I discovered a number of techniques to calm and relax myself before I actually purchased the Blue Heron Insomnia Program. With that said, I found many more methods to try once I had purchased it.

      To be honest, using things like breathing and relaxation techniques seemed a little far-fetched to me many years ago, but as I grew to understand a little more about how the human brain and body works as a whole, as I say it seems obvious now.

      Thanks once again

  10. Great informative post…I’ve never heard of Blue Heron program before. But that’s awesome that it works for you. I have dealt with insomnia before and realized its always stress induced to my life happenings at the time. My husband and I were struggling with fertility issues.

    My husband literally falls asleep the moment his head hits his pillow. Sometimes I’ll be talking to him and he’s past out already. He’s an early bird riser, so I get when he sleeps right away at night. Wish I was like that too!

    • Hi Dana,

      Thanks for your comments.

      I hear you – stress, as I’ve mentioned many times before, is probably the number one cause of insomnia. And your own experience I guess is an extremely stressful situation to have to deal with.

      With that said, I often wished I was like your husband too. Even now that I have pretty much dealt with my insomnia (I still have the occasional day here-and-there where sleep seems to evade me, but nothing like it used to be), I never fall asleep “as soon as my head hits the pillow”.

      I guess that’s just the way it is for me and millions of other people. However, I have learned over the years that creating and using certain habits during the day and the evening, and practicing certain techniques when I do get into bed, help me fall asleep far quicker nowadays.


  11. Sound interesting. It’s no harm trying for people who suffer from Insomnia since there is a 60 days money back guarantee. I always believe that a product that can provide 100% money back guarantee must be something does work for most people.

    It’s still better and healthier than spending money buying medicine which doesn’t solve the problem. Thank you for your honest review.

    • Hi Janet,

      Great to hear from you.

      Yes, this is actually something I like about all of Blue Heron’s (Christian Goodman’s) products – they all come with a 60-day full money back guarantee.

      Basically, Christian is that confident in the products that he writes and produces he’s willing to put his money where his mouth is.

      Blue Heron have said that their aim is produce natural solutions to just about any health issue or condition you can think of, so it makes sense that they back their products by giving this type of guarantee.

      As I’ve mentioned, I’ve purchased a number of their guides, many simply out of interest rather than seeking a cure for a condition, and I’ve always been impressed by the material they produce.


  12. Not getting a good night’s sleep is so detrimental to how we feel the next day. It can really take a lot of the fun out of life. I think most of us know at least one person who is grumpy and irritable due to sleep deprivation.
    The specific sounds designed to induce brain wave patterns of deep sleep are a great idea, and I use similar techniques for meditation, with good results.
    “Good sleep hygiene” (getting enough daylight during the day, exercising regularly, watching what we eat) is also very important for maintaining a healthy body, and it is also very important for the mind to be having thoughts relating to getting a good nights sleep, instead of having thoughts that affirm that sleeping is a problem.
    Thanks for the good information.

    • Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for your comments.

      Haha, I think for a number of years I was that “grumpy person” due to sleep deprivation, but I get your exact meaning.

      To be honest, it took me a long time to realize exactly how I was sabotaging my sleep, but looking back now at what I’ve learned over the years it just seems so obvious.

      I’ve never really looked into factors such a brain wave patterns previously, but the more I realized that my mind was not only affecting my sleep, but also my life in general, I studied these concepts a lot more closely.

      You always hear people espousing the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and after a number of years of ignoring this, or thinking to myself, “I’m alright as I am”, I now understand how one thing can affect another.

      I’ve always exercised and believed myself to be fit and healthy, but too many late-night meals, or being bent over in front of a computer screen for many hours a day were obviously having an imapct.

      I don’t think we have to all live as “saints” or “monks”, but if we’re experiencing problems with sleep and this really is encrouching on our everyday lives, then something has to change.


  13. Hi Partha,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with this program.

    I’m glad to say I do not suffer insomnia. I have a solid evening routine before going to bed and that really helps in getting a good, deep sleep at night. I find that meditating before going to bed is a great way to ease into sleep. I use yoga nidra guided meditations.

    I’m really curious though about this Blue Heron Insomnia program. I have a colleague who suffers from insomnia since she was a teen. She already underwent a sleep study at the hospital, but that hasn’t helped her much.

    Have you tried other programs as well? Would this be your first choice?

    Kind regards,

    • Hi Catherine,

      Thank you for your comments.

      Firstly, I have to say that you’ve pretty much provided a great solution for anyone struggling with insomnia, i.e. having a “solid evening routine”.

      This is the perfect way to ensure that you get a decent night’s sleep, but like any other habit, it does take consistent action.

      I think far too many of us simply choose to go to bed at a certain time, but our mind’s and body’s may still feel active, which is was makes it so hard to go to sleep.

      In a way in reminds me of our childhoods. Most of us would have an evening routine that would get us ready for sleep. Mine would usually be that I’d have a bath, put my pajamas on, get into bed and have my mother or father read me a bedtime story. However, the second my bath water was running I knew bedtime was fast approaching.

      Basically, my mind had been told that it was time to go to bed soon. However, this is a “habit” that many of us seem to have somehow lost as we’ve got older.

      I love your idea about guided meditations, and although I have only really started meditating over the last few years, I certainly find that it helps with sleep. My problem, and I’m sure this sounds familiar to many people, is that I find it hard to turn the constant chatter of my mind off before I go bed. But, meditation has worked wonders for me.

      As for other insomnia programs – yes, I tried and reviewed a number of other programs, but I have found that the Blue Heron Insomnia Program is the probably the easiest and most practical one to follow. In fact, many of the other programs I’ve reviewed on this website simply talk about creating great habits (which of course is a good thing), but never really seem to take it a step further and show you exactly what you should do.

      It is for this reason that Blue Heron’s Insomnia Program is my number one choice.


  14. Thank you for this helpful review on Insomnia program. My friend works as a prison officer and has suffered with insomnia for a few years now. She tried meditation and other techniques ,but she never got to the button of the problem. She has trouble going to REM sleep as she has constant nightmares and wakes up everytime.

    I will definitely recommend her to try this program. $49 is a small price to pay for a problem as big as insomnia, that can affect your life in so many ways. Sleep is extremely important in order to live a healthy and balanced life.

    I am glad to see that it worked for you that it is re-assuring to know.

    Thank you very much.

    Kind regards,

    • Hi Yoana,

      Thank you for your comments and I’m sorry to hear about your friend.

      I think firstly I should say that she obviously has a very stressful job, and I’ve touched on this many times before. Stress can be the number one cause of insomnia in the vast majority of cases.

      I guess it’s all about finding a way that works for YOU (of your friend in this case). I know many people will espouse the benfits of meditation to calm and relax the mind, and I know it has certainly made a big difference for me, not only for my sleeping habits, but in my life in general.

      However, that’s not to say it will work for everyone – we all have to find what works for us.

      I’m glad you’ll be recommending the Blue Heron Insomnia Program to her, as It is a program a strongly believe in.

      I’ve mentioned previously that I had reasearched and worked on my own insmonia issues before actually purchasing and reviewing this program. However, many of the techniques I had learned are availble inside the program, plus a whole host more.

      I like the way the Insomnia Program concentrates on brain wave activity because it makes a lot of sense when it comes to calming the mind.

      I wish you and your friend the best of luck and please let me know how she gets on.


  15. Hi Partha,

    It is an awesome program. I just suffered from insomnia last night. I tried to play some soft music but it doesn’t work. I think it is because the music doesn’t concentrate on my brain waves. Thank you for sharing this program. I think it may suitable for me. I’ll try it and tell you my result.

    Have a good sleep,


    • Hi Alex,

      Thank you for your comments.

      Funnily enough music can actually work really well for helping us get to sleep. However, listening to music is something that we should be doing prior to actually getting into bed.

      I think in the modern day-and-age we have become far too reliant on using our electronic devices for work and entertainment, and we are still typically using them up until the very second we get into bed (and some of us even continue to use them when we are in bed).

      I have spoken many times about the problems that blue light from devices such as smartphones, tablets, PCs, laptops, and even the TV cause. Blue light basically inhibits the production of the hormone melatonin, which is essential in order to help us sleep.

      I speak about not using any of theses devices at least an hour before we go to sleep, but this can often cause an issue of what to do in the evening leading up to bedtime.

      I believe that anything that helps us to relax can certainly help us to sleep and listening to calming and relaxing music is definitely near the top of the list of things to do.

      So, don’t totally give up on listening to music, but perhaps use this as a way to help you relax for a while before you even enter your bedroom.


  16. Very interesting review. I’ve heard a lot about these programs but I never understood how it worked. Thanks for explaining in a clear way that I could understand. I’m going to definitely suggest to my mom that suffers from sleep issues.

    • Hi Alyse,

      Nice to hear from you.

      No worries when it comes to my review and explanation of the program.

      I think for myself I had always previously assumed that if you struggled with sleep then sleeping pills or some other form of medication was the only solution.

      However, I’m not someone who typically wants to take medication and I would say throughout my life (no matter what the issue) I have always viewed medication as a last resort.

      Nevertheless, when I did first start researching a potential fix for my own insomnia I came across so much information about using relaxation techniques and ways to calm the mind. Now that I feel I have a better understanding of these methods they actually make a lot of sense.

      I’m sorry to hear about your mom and if I can be of any assistance or if you or she have any questions then please just let me know and I’ll do my best to answer or at least guide you to some further helpful information.


  17. I suffered from insomnia. 18 years ago I began taking a prescription medication for sleep. It works great. I go to sleep, wake up the next morning, well-rested and ready to go.

    I like the idea of going to sleep naturally though. I may give the Blue Heron program a try.

    Thanks for the article!

    • Hi Glenn,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I will say, firstly I’m happy that prescription medication worked for you, but I’m definitely not a fan.

      In fact, I have spoken numerous times about how I would rather treat any issue or condition (where appropriate) without any form of medication whatsoever… and that is definitely the case with insomnia.

      I will agree that we are on all individuals and what may work for one person might not work for another, but for me a natural cure (as I say, where appropriate) is always the best way forward.

      I’m glad the natural method that the Blue Heron Insomnia Program advocates is appealing to you and I can say from personal experience that the methods and techniques that are used will definitely work.

      Insomnia is a strange condition and can typically strike for anyone at any time. Some are fortunate to go a few sleepless nights here and there, and this is often because of something that is on their mind.

      However, for others (just like me) this could be an affliction that goes on for many years.

      I guess that’s why I don’t really like sleeping pills and prescribed medication for insomnia. In essence, you are only applying a short-term fix rather than dealing with the root cause of the problem.

      Plus taking any form of medication (irrespective of the condition) for many years will eventually start to have an impact on the internal organs and the way the body and brain function as a whole.


  18. I never knew there were sleep programs to try but after staying up until 3am last night and the 60 day full money back guarantee. This seems like the positives outweigh the negatives to someone who has a history of insomnia.

    A few years ago I tried some meditation apps for my girlfriend and it was highly successful. The Blue Heron Insomnia program seems to take it a few steps further with the eye and mind exercises.

    Being that it is all natural like you said, and easily downloadable. This is something I wold definitely try knowing I can always return it within the first 2 months for a refund! I agree with you when it comes to the price, if you have insomnia and $49 could potentially fix that…..I’m in!

    • Hi Bobby,

      Thanks for your comments.

      Firstly, I’ll say it’s great hear that your girlfriend has successfully used meditation apps in the past. I know it’s something that I’m a big fan of.

      I guess for many of us being “unable to turn the mind off” is what can cause issues with sleep. So, if you can discover a way to quieten the mind then you may find that your sleeping worries are a thing of the past. And this is why I believe that meditation can be so successful.

      In a way, many of the techniques that you’ll learn from the Blue Heron Insomnia Program have their roots based in meditation as well. You are learning ways to calm and relax the mind while focusing on something else that isn’t making you stressed or anxious.

      I’m glad you’ve noticed the money back guarantee as well that Blue Heron offer. They actually offer this same money back guarantee with all their health-related products, and I guess this goes to show just how confident they are in their products.

      So, you have the opportunity to test and try the Insomnia Program for 2 whole months (by which time your insomnia should be cured) and if for any reason you’re not happy, you can request a refund, no questions asked.


  19. Hey Partha,

    Another great article filled with resourceful information!

    I remember suffering from insomnia when I took up a highly-demanding job and had relocated because of it. The stress at work and being in a new environment altogether was not just affecting my quality of sleep (or lack thereof!) but also affecting hair, skin, nail and overall health! As a girl, this is ridiculously devastating, to say the least. 🙁

    During this time, I remember coming across Blue Heron products and always wondered whether they live up to their claims or not. If only I could take this article back in time with me, I probably would have still kept that high-paying job LOL.

    While I cannot travel back in time (and nor do i wish to), I am hopeful that more and more people suffering from insomnia come across your review and realize that there are natural alternatives to treating insomnia.

    I am sorry to hear that sleep apnea runs in your family. You have probably addressed this in a previous post but I am curious to know : are sleeping disorders hereditary?

    As usual, I look forward to reading more from you!


    • Hi Sasha,

      Great to hear from you as always.

      You describe what I would call the “perfect scenario” when it comes to having problems with sleep.

      I’m sure the amount of people who struggle with sleep because of the pressures and demands in their working life is extremely high.

      It’s also interesting to note that you say that the stress was actually starting to cause physical problems for you too. It amazes me just how much harm stress can do to the body, mentally, emotionally and physically. And this is not made any better by a lack of sleep.

      In a way it’s like a vicious cycle of events – you’re unable to sleep because you’re stressed out, you then become even more stressed out because you haven’t slept well. On top on the mental stress you start noticing that your physical appearance and possibly even your health is being impacted, which causes even more stress, and then even more sleepless nights.

      This is why using a program such as the one provided by Blue Heron looks to deal with the workings of the mind. Once you’re able to calm the mind appropriately and of course naturally, good sleep will follow.

      Also, thanks for your question – yes, many sleep disorders are indeed hereditary. I’ve often wondered if my insomnia was handed down to me from my father, although I’m now aware that my lifestyle and many of my routines were also having an affect. As for sleep apnea, it’s definitely not something I would like to go through after watching my mother suffer for years, but once again this can be hereditary.

      However, there are many other factors that can lead to or cause sleep apnea, and luckily (fingers crossed) these are not things that currently affect me.


  20. Partha,

    I don’t suffer from insomnia very often, but it’s debilitating when it happens. Usually, I’ll fall asleep after reading a book for a few minutes. Your review was interesting! I haven’t heard of The Blue Heron Insomnia Program before. According to your review you talked about the five stages of sleep. Within those five stages, we talk about those theta and delta waves and REM sleep a lot. But I think bedtime preparation is more important.

    You mentioned this as well. Conducting breathing exercises and refocusing the mind for sleep is a deliberate exercise. Perhaps, that’s why experts tell us not to watch TV or look at our phones right before bed time.

    Regardless, I felt like your review was helpful. It gave me a good picture about what Blue Heron was about. Also, knowing that they treat other issues with natural remedies is good to know, and something to investigate further. Thanks for your review!

    • Hi Robert,

      Thank you for your comments.

      I totally agree with you that bedtime preparation is EXTREMELY important. In fact, I have covered this subject in detail in many of my other articles on this website.

      What we do during the day and in the evening leading up to bedtime will have a huge impact on how well we sleep at night.

      Certain things we may not even consider such as, getting plenty of light during the day, exercise, the foods we eat, and as you’ve mentioned, avoiding electronics and the blue light they produce for at least an hour before we go to bed, will all affect how well we sleep.

      Thanks for your comments about Blue Heron as well, and I’m sure you can tell I am a fan of their many products. It appears their aim is to provide natural relief from just about any health-related conditon or afflication you can think of. They’re definitely a company that provides some great options for people who are suffering with any number of of health conditions.


  21. Hi there,

    There’s such valuable information here about this programme. I certainly feel the need to get better at falling asleep, as it often doesn’t happen easily when done naturally. Perhaps this is the programme I need to settle my mind at night!

    Thanks for such a thorough and honest review.


    • Hi Sharon,

      Great to hear from you as always.

      Yes, the Blue Heron Insomnia Program is definitely my number one recommendation for anyone who’s been struggling with sleep deprivation and insomnia for any length of time.

      As you say it is a way to treat insomnia naturally and therefore this is a big plus for me. I know many people tend to turn to sleeping pills and other forms of sleep medication in order to get a great night’s sleep, but in reality this is nothing more than a short-term fix. And no-one wants to be taking sleeping pills for a long, extended period of time.

      This is why it’s a great idea to learn techniques to “settle your mind at night” (as you have mentioned), and this is the only way to ensure a permanent cure.


  22. Hi Partha
    I seem to have found your site at a time when I have been having trouble with insomnia myself which is interesting. It’s interesting what you say about sleep hygiene, getting enough daylight and exercise etc. I know it’s also important to have a good diet and get into a regular routine of going to bed at the same time and getting up at the same time too. But it gets annoying if you wake up and can’t get to sleep. I know one thing that effects me is caffeine and drinking too much of any sort of liquid that makes me get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. So moderation is a big key I think too. The Blue heron could be quite helpful, sometimes I try to meditate back to sleep?
    Jeremy 🙂

    • Hi Jeremy,

      Thanks for your comments.

      I’m glad you found the article helpful and I can definitely recommend any product produced by Blue Heron, and their insomnia program is no different.

      I think dealing with the root cause of insomnia is always the best way to go, and a lot of the things that you have mentioned are things that many of us take for granted.

      Simple factors such as getting enough daylight, exercise, diet and nutrition, having a specific bedtime routine, turning off electronics well before sleep and goiny to bed and getting up at the same time every single day is often all that some people will ever need.

      Unfortnately, it’s easy to get into bad habits, and often in the modern day-and-age we seem to be constantly rushing around and we don’t find time to do the “simple” things. And it is this that can typically affect how well we sleep at night.

      You’ve mentioned meditation, and I know this has made a huge difference to me, not only for the quality of my sleep, but in life in general. I honestly think if we all just tried to take a little bit better care of ourselves, many conditions (including insomnia) wouldn’t even be an issue in our lives.


  23. This was a really well written and engaging review of this insomnia product that I must admit sounds pretty good.
    As someone that has suffered with problems sleeping for years I’m really tempted to try this one as it does sound like it could help.
    Thank you for a good honest review.

    • Hi Amy,

      Thank you for your kind comments.

      Yes, the Blue Heron Insomnia Program is actually the number one recommendation on my website for insomnia.

      As I’ve mentioned within this comment’s section and on this website – I actually came across some of the techniques you’ll find in this program many years before I actually purchased and reviewed it. However, they were things that worked for me.

      When I was finally introduced to Blue Heron’s program I recognized some of the things I had learned, but they went even further here. Plus there is plenty more methods, techniques and great advice on offer inside the program.

      You’ve probably guessed already, but I’m a fan.
