It’s a struggle for most.
According to the book Let’s Talk About Sleep: A Guide to Understanding and Improving Your Slumber:
- between 50 and 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders
- approximately 30 to 35 percent of adults complain of insomnia
- one in every 25 Americans relies on prescription sleep medication
- more than one-third of adults don’t get enough sleep on a consistent basis
- $16 billion is spent every year in direct medical costs derived from sleep disorders
That’s exhausting! Perhaps you’re part of one — or more — of the above statistics. In an effort to get some shuteye, many turn to medications. “While there are countless remedies said to improve our sleeping patterns and help us get a full eight hours, the side effects can be dangerous,” says Michael Breus, PhD, known as the Sleep Doctor.
If lack of sleep is affecting your mood, sapping your energy, clouding your cognitive function or interfering with your ability to get through the day without sugar highs and unsightly eye bags, counting sheep may soon be a distant memory. There are all-natural solutions that won’t have you feeling drowsy from drug side effects the next day.
In honor of Sleep Awareness Week, happening March 11 to 17, what better time to address ways that we can all enjoy the physical, emotional and mental benefits of getting much-needed sleep without resorting to dangerous medication or toxic solutions?
3 Products That Aid in Healthy Sleep
1. Sleep Bracelet
It only makes sense to implement a toxic-free tool that harmonizes our own body’s internal frequencies with the earth’s natural resonance, the Schumann Resonance. Now you can with the medication-free Sleep Bracelet by Philip Stein. Besides beautiful aesthetics, the Sleep Bracelet uses something called Natural Frequency Technology to harness and channel calming frequencies that aid in sleeping better and waking up more refreshed.
Whether you’re experiencing hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), a neurological condition or the unpleasant hormonal imbalances from menopause or post-traumatic stress disorder, say goodbye to sweaty sleep. The USA-made Wicked Sheets work while you rest to keep you drier — in fact, they’re 2 to 3 degrees cooler, allowing three times more air flow. I personally have a set and can tell you the silk-weight poly-fiber fabric works like athletic apparel by wicking away six times more moisture than standard sheets. They’re smooth to the touch and dry four times faster than regular sheets. Oh, did I mention they’re healthy, too? That means free of dangerous dyes, chemicals and bleaching agents that cause skin irritation. Plus, Wicked Sheets are hypoallergenic and certified by the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America to be allergy- and asthma-friendly.
How would you like to reduce stress and snooze more soundly? Meet Dreampad, infused with a patented technology to help you ease you into a peaceful sleep through relaxing sounds and gentle vibrations that only you can hear. No more tossing and turning through the night. This pad will relax your brain by calming your nervous system, keeping you sound asleep.
Our human bodies are semi-conductive since we are made up of 70 percent water. Dreampad works with our body’s natural conductivity via bone conduction and embedded micro transducers. It’s simple to use. Just download the Dreampad music app to your smartphone, plug your phone into the pillow, play the music and relax your weary head. Choose from slim, firm, medium or memory foam support.
While there is a Bluetooth option, I advise against this option due to the radiofrequencies emitted from Bluetooth. Rather, turn your smartphone to airplane mode and use the six-foot extension cord so the phone isn’t near your head. You can set the timer to play music for minutes, hours or the entire night.
