- Will an organic mattress help me get a better nights sleep?
The average adult, ages 29 – 64, requires seven to nine hours of sleep each night according to recent studies. However, getting a “solid” night’s sleep is much more than just going to bed on time.
To fully recharge, one needs roughly 45% of their sleep pattern to be in the “deep sleep” REM cycle. Your body needs to be completely relaxed, with minimum movement and no outside disturbances.
So how does an organic mattress help you achieve a better night’s sleep?
- Benefits of an Organic Mattress
Taking the plunge and opting in for an organic mattress can help your body get the rest you need while fighting other common ailments.
Do you suffer from allergies? Do you worry about the ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals and other problems such as electromagnetic radiation?
Well here are the top reasons why you should switch to an organic mattress:
Mostly everyone will suffer from allergies at some point in their life. Some people are prone to seasonal allergies; others are simply sensitive to irritants. Organic mattresses and bedding offer natural ways to get your zzz’s without compromising on your comfort.
Organic Mattress – perfect for those suffering from a latex allergy. Standard beds are lined with various materials, including latex that can irritate the skin causing poor sleep cycles.
100% Chemical Free Wool – A natural fire-retardant and resistant to mold and bacteria, this bedding is perfect for those fighting colds and damp regions.
Chemicals are out of control in today’s society, but your bed doesn’t have to be filled with them. Standard beds are fabricated using petroleum based foams, synthetic latex, metals, and other components potentially causing your body to develop conditions such as allergies, asthma, fertility problems/hormone imbalance and even autism in some studies.
- Electromagnetic Radiation
With cell phones, radios, television and satellite signals bouncing around the world at an exponential rate, scientists are beginning to link potential cancer to excessive exposure to these various signals.
A standard mattress and box spring is built with metal coils, acting as one large antenna drawing those signals directly into your bed. Scientific American covered the study releasing evidence from a 2007 study done in Sweden.
The study ran from 1989 and 1993, revealed a strong link between the rate of cancer and the number of FM and TV transmission towers located within a radius of the study. In addition, exposure to high levels of electromagnetic waves can disrupt the body’s natural vibration rhythms, causing one to get less sleep.
Getting a good night’s rest is more than just laying your head down on a pillow and calling it a night. Getting a good evening’s rest is sleeping the right amount of hours each day, having the right proportion between “deep” and “regular” sleep, avoiding irritants to keep you awake, eliminating chemicals that harm your body, and not using your bedroom as one giant antenna.
If you are ready to start sleeping well and feeling great while doing so, then take some time to check out the organic mattress and bedding options available to you. You might just be surprised at how much better you feel in the morning.
