As the old saying goes, we spend the majority of our lives asleep. But for many of us, sleep can be an elusive goal. We toss and turn, fluffing our pillows and stare at the clock. A restless night can affect your entire day, making you irritable, tired, and slow.
Although it’s easy to take a sleeping pill to get the rest you crave, there may be a more natural, safer alternative to medication – far infrared therapy.
How Far Infrared Can Help
According to the National Sleep Foundation, approximately 40 million Americans experience insomnia every year. When insomnia occurs at least three nights a week for at least three months, it is considered a chronic condition. It is the most common sleep disorder in the United States and can lead to lack of energy, anxiety, irritability, and difficulty with tasks, learning, and remembering.
There are many causes for insomnia, but one of the most common factors is stress. It happens to all of us – the mind is whirling, and you can’t make it stop. All you need is something to help you relax.
And that’s what far infrared can offer. Not only can it remove inflammation, which can take away the type of pain that keeps you up at night, but it can help you relax and settle your mind once and for all.
How Your Gut Plays a Part
Did you know that your stomach may have something to do with your poor sleep quality? It’s true! Research has shown that adults who report poor sleep quality have found to have an unhealthy quantity of microbiota (bacteria) in their gut. An imbalance of microbiota can cause infection, leading to gastrointestinal disease. So when you’re not getting enough of the sleep hormone melatonin, the body relies on the gut to help you get to sleep. And with harmful bacteria in your stomach, you could be facing a bad night ahead.
That’s where Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Device can come into play. Far infrared can help decrease inflammation in your stomach, which can cause the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your brain cells. It can help you relax, making sleep a reality.
So How Does It Work?
The Gladiator Far Infrared Device uses your body heat to help relieve inflammation and pain in your body. The patented ceramics in the device absorb the body’s ambient heat and convert that heat into far infrared energy in the form of photons. Those photons are redirected into the body where they cause water clusters in plasma to vibrate and break apart. Reducing the cluster size makes blood circulation more efficient, and improved circulation will allow better transmission of the signals that regulate sleep.
