Improving Sleep & Body Healing

Insomnia or sleeplessness is common in today’s society. The National Sleep Foundation’s 2002 “Sleep in America” poll showed that 58% of adults in the U.S. experienced symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more.
Insomnia is typically followed by functional impairment while awake. Insomnia can occur at any age, but it is particularly common in the elderly. Insomnia can lead to memory problems, depression, irritability and an increased risk of heart disease and automobile related accidents.
A survey of 1.1 million residents in the United States found that those who reported sleeping about 7 hours per night had the lowest rates of mortality, whereas those who slept for fewer than 6 hours or more than 8 hours had higher mortality rates.
Those who are having trouble sleeping sometimes turn to sleeping pills, which can help when used occasionally but may lead to substance dependency or addiction if used regularly for an extended period.
It is during the sleep cycle that the body heals, repairs damage and regenerates cells. However, many people have trouble with sleep. If the body does not heal during the sleep cycle, sickness will increase leading to disease, depression and other disorders.
Natural human growth hormones and Melatonin are produced during the sleep cycle. These hormones are known to be key factors in anti-aging. Many pharmaceutical companies manufacture these ho
rmones, but synthetic supplements often have side effects, and are banned by sports authorities as they are considered performance enhancers. The natural hormones created by our own bodies are safe and lack the side effects.
Pulsed magnetic fields stimulate the pineal gland to produce Melatonin which is the most important hormone for sleep, anti-aging, and is also a powerful antioxidant. PEMF also stimulates the pituitary gland to produce the human growth hormone (HGH), which incites growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals.
