Sleep Basics

Sleep is a natural periodic state of rest and repair for both body and mind.

The ideal scenario is to fall asleep easily, enjoy a deep, restful and undisturbed sleep. Then wake up refreshed and ready for a new day.

Some ignore the importance of sleep, seeing it as a literal waste of productive time. If you struggle with falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting enough of it, please keep reading.

Sleep is ESSENTIAL to Survive Life

We all know that a good night’s sleep is necessary to perform during the day, yet studies show that 30-40% of us are sleep deprived from either insomnia or disrupted sleep. This has a very negative impact on the quality of your health and how much you enjoy life.

Sleep and rest are critically important to your well being, and too many people already suffer from sleep disorders. If you are one of them, we have solutions.

Take a look at the image below to see the far-reaching negative effects of sleep deprivation. Then please read further to avoid these health issues.

Effects of Sleep Deprivation

Profound Benefits of a Good Sleep

What Can Wreck a Good Sleep

  • Eating lots of processed foods, sugar, alcohol, caffeine
  • Sitting all day, not enough activity/exercise
  • Artificial light sources
  • Staying up too late, getting up early.

If your sleep isn’t great, chances are that you are guilty of one or more of these common mistakes. And you might not even realize it.

Neglecting precious, natural rest time can have a very negative impact on your health.

Some convince themselves that they’re fine with only six hours of sleep. Then drink 3 cups of coffee to get going, and more throughout the day. This can make a deep restful sleep very difficult. Hard to wind down, fall asleep and stay there.

Create Your Best Sleep Environment

According to the National Sleep Foundation, your sleep environment is one of the most important factors in the quality of your sleep.

Do you know about Electrosmog?

EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are  EVERYwhere.

Only a hundred years ago there weren’t any, yet now these negative energies can really sap your strength, health and vitality. Here’s where they come from:

  • wireless devices (cell phones, tablets, e-readers, mp3 players, wi-fi transmitters)
  • overhead power lines, transformers
  • laptop computers and monitors
  • electric motors and appliances
  • even the electric wires inside your walls.

The EMFs in your world may not be enough to make you sick directly, but they drain your energy – sort of like walking on a windy day. You can do it, but it wears you out.

  1. Sensitivity to EMFs is on the rise.
  2. Symptoms of inflammatory diseases decrease when EMF levels are lowered.

To enhance the quality of your sleep, clear your room of all electronics. You might like to try EMF Protection. These products may help eliminate the negative influences of all electronics and wifi. These negative energies sap your strength.

Create an Island of Peace by neutralizing and harmonizing energy forces leaving you with your energy flow restored and renewed.

Supporting Research

The National Sleep Foundation maintains that eight to nine hours of sleep for adult humans is optimal and that sufficient sleep benefits alertness, memory and problem solving, and overall health, as well as reducing the risk of accidents.

Not everybody needs the recommended 8 hours of sleep every night. Some people need less, others need more. Sleep deprivation can adversely affect brain function.

  • A widely publicized 2003 study performed at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine demonstrated that cognitive performance declines with fewer than eight hours of sleep.
  • A 2001 Study at Harvard’s Medical Institute suggested that sleep deprivation may be linked to more serious diseases, such as heart disease.
  • Several large studies using nationally representative samples suggest that the obesity epidemic in Europe and the United States might have as one of its causes a corresponding decrease in the average number of hours that people are sleeping. The findings suggests that this might be happening because sleep deprivation might be disrupting hormones that regulate glucose metabolism and appetite. The association between sleep deprivation and obesity appears to be strongest in young and middle-age adults.


Can’t get to sleep? Tossing and turning, your mind in override?

Insomnia occurs for numbers of reasons…

Magnesium Deficiency
Magnesium is necessary to relax the muscles and nervous system. Difficulty sleeping can arise when the tissue levels of these minerals are low. Toxic metals, such as lead or cadmium, can displace it.

Copper Imbalance
Too much copper has a stimulating effect on the brain that causes the mind to race and excites the emotions. If this is you, you most likely stay up late and have difficulty falling or staying asleep. Insomnia before the menstrual period may be due to elevated or diminished copper. Chocolate at this time supplies the copper and magnesium components the body is looking for.

Sympathetic Nervous System Dominance
This is when your fight or flight mechanism is in overdrive. Meditation, yoga and relaxation is so important for good sleep. Brain chemistry can be assisted with specific minerals such as Magnesium, known to induce relaxation.

Too much or too little food can interfere with sleep and creates one of two things: an overly acidic body or dropping blood sugars. If you wake up hungry in the middle of the night, you have dropping blood sugars. Our carbohydrate levels have the greatest effect on the overall conscious and subconscious feeling of well being than any other aspect.

When your body gets its required nutrients, it can clean, repair and maintain itself. Find your specific Metabolic Type to determine what foods contribute to your health. And which foods take away your well being. Learn how to construct meals to build health instead of disease. Feeding your unique body type is the single most important principle that affects your maximum performance in all aspects of life.
