How much do you really know about Sleep and Your body?

Take the Quiz!

http://www.doctoroz.com/quiz/dr-oz-s-sleep-quiz

 

Don’t feel like taking the quiz?  Just read the facts below!

FACT 1:

Did you know sleeping on your side is considered the “healthiest”  sleep position. Ideally, this type of sleeper should lie with their back slightly curled, with bent knees and arms. This posture complements the natural curvature of the spine.

 

FACT 2:

The minimum amount of sleep you need to function is 7 hours,  almost 3/4 of Americans aren’t having.  Someone who gets 5 hours – along with diabetes, a women’s chances for obesity and heart problems also increase by 50%. Additionally, weight gain and decreased immunity are side effects of sleep deprivation.

FACT3:

There are 81 different sleep disorders affecting approximately 70 million people in the US. Most of these are rare and affect few; the most common is insomnia. Ever heard of Parasomnia? This includes nighttime sleep-related eating disorders (SRED), sleepwalking (somnambulism), screaming (night terrors) and periodic limb movement disorder.

FACT4:

Up to 1 million adults could be sleep eaters, a possible contributing cause of obesity. In fact, a good percentage of patients who attend obesity clinics have been diagnosed with a sleep-eating condition.

FACT4:

Several studies in adults suggest that valerian root may improve sleep quality and reduce the time it takes to fall asleep. Valerian root is a common ingredient in many mild sedatives and sleep aids, but should not be mixed with other sedatives or anti-anxiety medications.  If your looking for a natural method to promote sleep – try SLEEP SCENTSATIONS Aromatherapy Pillow Liners.  Lavender is known for being extremely relaxing.

FACT5:

Sleep apnea is also a major cause of high blood pressure and can lead to inflammation and clogging of the arteries. If left untreated,it can result in irritability, depression, and in some instances, can be fatal. People that suffer from sleep apnea often have a large neck size (over 17 inches for men; 16 inches for women). Additional symptoms include loud snoring at night, interruptions in nighttime breathing, abrupt awakenings followed by shortness of breath, headaches, and memory loss.

Sleeping on your back, in the supine position, can cause the tongue to fall inwards blocking the breathing tube. Back sleepers are prone to snoring and people with sleep apnea should not sleep on their back. If you must sleep on your back, put a pillow under your knees and a small pillow under your lower back.

FACT6:

Taking a hot bath causes your body temperature to fall, making sleep more attainable. While exercise during the day can improve sleep, doing it close to bedtime is too stimulating. And while alcohol has a sedating effect, it can disrupt deep sleep.

FACT7:

Progressive relaxation is a sleep-inducing technique involving tightening and relaxing groups of muscles. It starts with the hands and then moves to the arms, shoulders, neck, head, and then down to the legs and feet.

FACT8:

If you are not asleep after 15 minutes, get out of bed. You want the bed to be associated with sleep, not wakefulness. Go into another room and engage in a non-stimulating activity until you begin to feel sleepy, and then head back to bed. You should reserve the bed for sleep and sex only.

FACT9:

65°F is ideal – you want to keep the room as cold as you can comfortably stand. You also want your bedroom to be as dark and quiet as possible.

A recent study done on snoring and sleep disorders just might have you in shock! Besides that fact that most people who snore are constantly buying the next great snore-reducer, snoring can actually hurt you terribly financially.

snoring and other sleep disorders may be costing you more than you think

Tip

Study finds unemployment rates were 30% higher for people with sleep disorders.

Lab Report

Snoring makes you poorer – and we’re not just talking about the money your partner spends on earplugs.  Though many consider snoring to be a nighttime problem, it has real consequences on your waking life, too, particularly for your wallet.  New research demonstrates that chronic snorers earn less money than people with normal sleep habits.

Since the health effects are already known, researchers in Denmark sought to find how snoring and other breathing-related complications affected people financially. For their sleep problems alone, snorers spent about $1,000 extra per year, sleep apnea sufferers paid more than $5,000, and those with obesity hypoventilation syndrome exceeded a whopping $15,000.

What’s worse is that the patients with these conditions are less equipped to pay for this healthcare.  Unemployment rates were 30 percent higher for people with these sleep disorders. Of the people who did have jobs, they earned significantly lower paychecks than people without sleep problems.  Undoubtedly, the drowsiness that results from these conditions reduces productivity, thus affecting how people are compensated.

Even though treatment of snoring and sleep apnea may be costly, it appears worthwhile to nip it in the bud.  Treating and conquering the problem early could save you from years of lost jobs and wages.

For $15.99 you can get snoring relief with Sleep Scentsations’ SNORE RX formula!  It could change your life!

NO More worries about taking addictive Sleep Medications!

Aromatherapy is commonly used to alleviate stress, but it’s also useful in aiding sleep and treating sleep disorders. Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils to comfort and heal, and it is one of the fastest growing alternative therapies in the Western world. In aromatherapy, the essential oils are used externally rather than taken internally.

Essential oils are said to stimulate an area of the brain, known as the limbic system, that controls your moods and emotions. Sleep is a crucial component of human life, and all mammal, reptile and bird life need it. Sleep helps to refresh, restore and heal the body and the brain.

How Much Sleep Do You Need?

According to webmd.com, a typical adult needs between seven and eight hours of sleep per night, although some people only need five hours and others need 10. When a person runs a “sleep deficit,” meaning they have not had enough sleep in previous nights, then they will require more sleep in subsequent nights.

Sleep Quality vs. Quantity

Although the quantity of sleep is important, quality of sleep is also significant. According to the Better Sleep Council of Canada, six hours of uninterrupted sleep is better than eight hours of disturbed sleep. Disturbed sleep usually includes periods of wakefulness and/or periods of tossing and turning. It can also include difficulty getting to sleep or difficulty waking up.

What Causes Sleep Problems?

There are many causes of sleep problems including:

  • Pain – Pain can cause difficulty in getting to sleep and staying asleep. Pain medications may help alleviate this but some have added side effects.
  • Poor Diet – Caffeine, alcohol and a large snack before bed can all cause sleep disturbances. Drinking any fluids before bedtime can make some people prone to wake to go to the bathroom.
  • Bedroom Temperature –  A bedroom which is too warm or too cold can affect sleep. The ideal bedroom temperature is about 60º
  • Bed – Uncomfortable beds can cause back pain as well as make people need to toss and turn more than usual. Ensure the bed is no more than 10 years old and is appropriately designed and manufactured.
  • Noise and Light – People sleep best when their environment is quiet and dark. Remove any sources of noise or light.
  • Snoring – Either partner’s snoring can cause sleep disturbance.
  • Anxiety – Emotional turmoil, anxiety and stress can all cause a person to lie awake worrying or wake up suddenly and be unable to return to sleep while the mind is racing.

Did you know that Aromatherapy could actually help you quit smoking cigarettes? Why spend hundreds of dollars on a patch? When you could be spending your money on relaxation and better sleep right?

What most people do not know is the fact that Aromatherapy (the inhaling of essential oils to heal our bodies and influence emotions) dates back thousands of years. Aromatic oils were actually used by the royal families of ancient Egypt. Today, science is confirming what some cultures have known for centuries: scent can arouse feelings, suppress urges and even provide curative benefit to certain physical ailments.

Simply by breathing the aromatherapy while you are sleeping, you send scent molecules into your system where they entirely bypass the brain-blood barrier and move directly to you brain’s olfactory nerve. There they are received by the limbic system, your body’s control center for emotions, memory, stress response, metabolic function and sexual arousal.

Many people feel the effects immediately and the best part is that Aromatherapy is completely safe and non addictive, so feel free to use as often as you would like!

Aromatherapy and essential oils change moods and influence how you feel. Scents that are believed to help relieve the effects of nicotine addiction are lavender, bergamot, and chamomile.  A number of people have found that bergamot takes away smoking cravings for cigarettes, helping them give up smoking more easily.

Again, keep in mind the emotional moods and symptoms you experience everyday.  Now you might want to consider using a product like Sleep Scentsations when you are feeling aggravated (especially after a long day of work) because you are trying to quit and you are feeling withdrawals.  Inhaling a calming scent like Ginger and Amber will help you relax and fall asleep before you may even reach for that cigarette!

Vaporizer

Using essential oils is a simple but very effective way to help you through something that is so challenging.  Why not spend $20 bucks for a lifetime of better breathing?
