Insomnia and its consequences
Sleep problems have truly become a disease of our time. On the one hand, there are those people who go to bed really tired but find themselves unable to fall asleep. They toss and turn and run thoughts through their mind that make it even more difficult to fall asleep. There are also those who fall asleep straight away only to wake up in the night and are unable to drop off again. No matter how it happens, a lack of sleep is always a problem.
A persistent lack of sleep can cause the following, among others:
- daytime sleepiness
- difficulty concentrating
- reduced efficiency
- general lack of energy
- high blood pressure
- susceptible immune system
- cardiovascular disease
The stated symptoms differ, with different periods in which they appear. The first five symptoms appear straight after a sleepless night. The last three symptoms can be considered long-term symptoms and emphasise what a major health benefit can be provided by relaxing sleep.
That lack of sleep is proven to negatively affect health to the extent that it is a risk factor in many serious diseases has been shown in several studies:
A Japanese study showed in 2008 that lack of sleep increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. According to the study, getting less than seven and a half hours sleep per day can increase the risk of such diseases, especially if significantly less sleep is gained or a person suffers from high blood pressure at the same time.
Sleep deprivation has been proven to weaken the immune system, which needs sleep to defend against infections. Also, the level of cortisol, a stress hormone, increases in cases of short-term sleep deprivation.
Sleep is the natural way for people to regenerate. Anyone who wants to stay healthy and productive is advised to find out their ideal sleep habits and ensure they gain sufficient restful sleep.
A common cause of sleep disorders is the electrosmog that we are exposed to daily. This has a negative effect on the earth’s natural magnetic field. The disruption to the earth’s natural magnetic field can lead to you suffering from a failure to fall asleep and stay asleep. GENII offers a way to recreate the vibration of the earth’s natural magnetic field and apply it continuously to the body. This can have a positive impact on the quality of sleep, leading to a more relaxing sleep that subsequently boosts health.
