Samina Sleep System – The Bed I Recommend

unnamed-750x500

For years I have been searching for the most non-toxic healthiest bed on the earth. Many people are sleeping on toxic mattresses doused in flame retardants, formaldehyde and mold. It’s no wonder they wake up exhausted!My friend Dave Asprey sleeps on a Samina bed. I had been avoiding making the investment, hoping I could find something great on a budget. So I tried various alternatives like organic memory foam, but I wasn’t happy with it. It made me sleep really hot and would wake up a lot at night. I gave it to a friend.

I tried an organic mattress, but found out that while many fabrics and bedding were organic, it was still made metal springs, which affect my body’s electrical field and it still contained unnatural materials that contained chemicals. I wasted a lot of money.

Swanwick-blog

Neglecting sleep in insidious. Studies have shown that after 6 hours of sleep your cognitive performance suffers, and you don’t even realize it! Blue light can be a big cause of lost sleep or inability to get to sleep.

Sleep keeps us healthy, regulates our hormones, gives us mental clarity, happiness, and rejuvenates us. Fat loss is impossible without sleep.

A bad night’s sleep leaves us cranky, tired, lethargic, unhappy, and sometimes in pain. Poor sleep always leaves you feeling hungry because it messes with your blood sugar levels.

Biohacks for Better Sleep

Biohacks-for-Better-Sleep

Sleep is the single most important thing you must do to improve your health. Shockingly, 40% of Americans get less than 5 hours of sleep per night! Time to biohack your way to better sleep!

Sleep scientist, William Dement, has said that sleep, “is the most important predictor of how long you will live – perhaps more important than smoking, exercise or high blood pressure.(1)” People getting less than six hours of sleep per night were 12 percent more likely to die over a 25-year period than people getting 6-8 hours per night.

Chronic sleep loss contributes to health problems such as weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease and a decrease in the immune system’s power. In other words, we need sleep (2,3,4,5)! Read More…

Little Known Causes of Depression

Depression-Health-Condition-V2

Depression has many underlying causes that are not being adequately addressed by antidepressants. Learn about many causes of depression and how to reverse it naturally with diet, detoxification and other powerful natural remedies.

Depression is the number one cause of disability in the US. It affects 10 million people in the US alone and 340 million people worldwide (1). Depression is a normal emotion. It is a driver to action and change that has survival purposes. It’s only when it is prolonged that it becomes a problem – or when you decide to take antidepressant drugs that could alter your brain chemistry permanently.

Honestly, writing this article on depression got me a little depressed. My father was depressed as long as I knew him. And so was his mom (my gramgrams). She even underwent shock ‘therapy’ and suffered from alcoholism. I spent well over a decade struggling with depression myself. I had always assumed my depression had an inherited component. I now know differently. Read More…
