Are you supporting your mind and body with good sleep, rest, and relaxation?
One of the most overlooked aspects of living a healthy lifestyle is getting the proper amount of high-quality sleep every night. Research shows that getting deep sleep, or REM sleep, is required for peak performance of the endocrine system. This system detoxifies and de-acidifies the body during the evening hours when the body is at rest-- when the smooth muscles are relaxed and the blood flows more freely.
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health researchers in Baltimore found that the toxic protein build up and plaques in the brains of those with Alzheimer's was increased in those individuals who typically slept poorly or under five hours a night. The brains of those getting seven or more hours a night were much healthier and showed less levels of the beta-amyloid build up.
Rest, relaxation, and sleep is critical to peak performance, slowing the aging process and leading to a healthy immune system and happier life.
What can you do to improve the quality of your sleep? At Foresight Chiropractic Wellness Center, several options are available to help you sleep better and support a healthy lifestyle:
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. This upper cervical Chiropractic specialty utilizes very precise and gentle adjustments to align the spine on the top bone known as the Atlas. When the Atlas is misaligned, the body's natural immune system can be compromised and can lead to other health complaints like poor sleep, headaches, and migraines, and digestive issues to name just a few.
BEMER Vascular Therapy. BEMER is a patented medical device that sends a very specific pulsed electromagnetic signal straight to your muscle cells, working with your body's own natural current to improve cellular function through microcirculation. Enhancing waste removal, nutrient and oxygen delivery, and local blood flow are the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.
BrainTap. Guided meditation is a proven stress-buster, and an important lifestyle activity to have in your health and wellness toolbox. BrainTap has more than 400 programs of meditation to help you quickly and easily relax, re-boot and revitalize. With BrainTap, you put on a special headset that provides sounds, words and pulsing light of your meditation. You can choose programs that help you improve your emotional, physical and spiritual well-being while supporting healthy sleep.
