Sleep magnesium – the link
The Link Between good Sleep Magnesium and good health is vital for us to get a handle on.
A few years ago I received this testimonial and it is very relevant. Especially when Maggie shares her husband’s story about his problem with sleep magnesium totally changed his life
The Magic of Magnesium – Maggie’s story
Hi Karen, I just have to tell you what has happened to me over the last few months, I cannot believe it. In November last year my back, neck and shoulders were so sore I found just the act of moving a real
effort. So I hardly did anything. It was so very frustrating as I had always been so active. I am only 57 years old and I felt very, very old.
I had been every week for the last 2 years to my physiotherapist and he was at a loss as to what to do next as nothing seemed to work, there wasn’t anything structurally wrong as I had all the x-rays and tests available. I even went and had blood tests for everything imaginable, nothing showed up!
I heard about you and your services. From a friend who had done your weight loss programme and she said you were always so supportive that it might be worth giving you a call. So I did. What was so refreshing was what you
said ( I don’t know if you remember? you said to me )” We have a machine that can test you. Which I think would get to the bottom of this. But I think we will try Magnesium first as that could be the root cause” I had tried magnesium before but not in the form that you apply to the skin. So after an explanation of what makes yours different. I purchased the Restore magnesium.
I applied this 3 times a day on my back, neck and shoulders plus anywhere else I could for 3 weeks and after that twice a day. Well, the results were fast and dramatic. In those first three weeks, I went from being immobile to being able to go for a 10 minute walk with my dog for the first time in two years – which doesn’t sound much but it was
huge for me. Now I am out walking every day for about half an hour, plus I have just started a yoga class. I carried on going to my physio and he can’t believe the results.
The Restore magnesium works I can’t thank you enough
By the way, I now have my husband on it, he is hooked as he feels so much better and
his blood pressure has come down too. Plus he is sleeping for the first time in over 10 years so it has totally changed his life!
Maggie, Hamilton 2015
I have been back in touch with Maggie and she is still using our Restore Magnesium and her and her husband are still loving the results
I love the fact that I have clients that keep on coming back
As it is so rewarding and great to get to know them better!
As you know I am a huge fan of magnesium. From the story above you can see why. We get these stories in constantly which is why I do what I do for a job. It is so rewarding!
I believe it is so important that I will say this to you now. If you were to only have one supplement then always go for Magnesium. Not just any old magnesium use one of ours and you WILL totally feel the difference. We have so many testimonials about this wonderful product that we wish we could get everyone onto it. In fact, everyone who passes
our door will normally go out with one type or another. So please use it. It is no good sitting in the bathroom cabinet or wherever you store stuff. Put it where you will see it. Then use it( I have one by my bed, one by the computer and one next to the shower. That way I can’t forget it). This is the only way you will see the huge benefits…..
If you don’t have any then buy some NOW! Your body needs lots of this critical nutrient every day at least twice if not more if you have any health challenges. Magnesium Oils our New gels are wonderful as they are easier to use and most people don’t have any problem with it feeling dry on the skin.
Sleep is critical to our wellbeing
If you’re like many, you may not be getting enough sleep. The Repercussions can go far beyond just feeling tired and sluggish the next day. Magnesium and sleep are great bedpartners as you will find if you read my free downloadable booklet – see below!
According to a 2013 poll 40 % of adults get six hours or less per night. Even children are becoming sleep deprived. On average 58 % of teens average only seven hours of sleep or less.
The centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that lack of sleep is a public health epidemic. Noting that insufficient sleep has been linked to a wide variety of health problems.
For example, getting less than five hours of sleep per night may double your risk of. Heart disease, heart attack, and/or stroke. Research has also found a persistent link between lack of sleep and weight gain, insulin resistance, and diabetes.
The risks of insufficient sleep are well-documented, there have been many who question how much sleep is optimum. of course that, depends on so much. It varies between individuals but the average for an adult is between 8-10 hours probably a lot more than most of us get.
Also it is the quality of the sleep that we have that is important. There is new research that is showing if you have good quality sleep through middle age. Then you are far more likely to be healthy through your later years.
What can disrupt the quality of sleep?
Modern technology could be a large part of the cause of disrupted sleep for example
- The exposure to excessive amounts of light from light bulbs and electronic gadgets at night hinders your brain from winding down for sleep by preventing the Release of melatonin (Melatonin levels naturally rise in response to darkness. Which makes you feel sleepy.)
- Electromagnetic radiation can also have an adverse effect on your sleep. Even if it doesn’t involve visible light.
- Maintaining a natural rhythm of exposure to daylight during the day, and darkness at night. It is an essential component of a great night’s sleep. Not only are most people exposed to too much light after dark, they’re also getting insufficient amounts of natural daylight during the day.
Daytime exposure to bright sunlight is important. Because it serves as the major synchronizer of something called your master clock. Which in turn influences other biological clocks throughout your body. This means of course exposure without sunglasses!
Even daytime exposure to electric equipment can affect our sleep patterns. If is said that many People now get one to two hours less sleep each night. On average, compared to 60 years ago. A primary reason for this is the proliferation of electronics, which also allows us to work (and play) later than ever before. According to recent research, teens in particular may have difficulty
falling asleep if they spend too much time using electronic devices—even if their use of technology is restricted to daytime hours!
Report On Sleep and Screen time
As reported by the Huffington Post:“The cumulative amount of screen time a teen gets throughout the day. Not just before bedtime. Affects how long they sleep, according to the study..‘One of the surprising aspects was the very clear dose-response associations,’ said the study’s lead researcher Mari Hysing… ‘The longer their screen time, the shorter their sleep duration.’”
Boys spent more time using game consoles, while girls favoured smartphones and MP3 music players. But regardless of the type of device. The effect on sleep was the same. The researchers found that:
- Using an electronic device within one hour of bedtime resulted in spending more than an hour tossing and turning before falling asleep
- Using electronics for four hours during the day resulted in a 49 percent increased risk of needing more than one hour to fall asleep. Compared to those who used electronics for less than four hours total
- Those who used any device for more than two hours per day were 20 percent more likely to need more than an hour to fall asleep, compared to those whose usage was less than two hours
- Those who spent more than two hours online were more than three times as likely to sleep less than five hours compared to their peers who spent less time online
Just by making a few small adjustments to your daily routine and sleeping area. Can go a long way to ensure uninterrupted, restful sleep and, thereby, better health.
- Make sure you regularly get BRIGHT sun exposure during the day. Your pineal gland produces melatonin roughly in approximation to the contrast of bright sun exposure in the day and complete darkness at night. If you are in darkness all day long, it can’t appreciate the difference and will not optimize your melatonin production. To help your circadian system to reset itself, make sure to get at least 10-15 minutes of morning sunlight. This will send a strong message to your
internal clock that day has arrived, making it less likely to be confused by weaker light signals later on.
Also if you can, aim for 30-60 minutes of outdoor light exposure in the middle of the day, in order to “anchor” your master clock rhythm. The ideal time to go outdoors is right around solar noon but any time during daylight hours is useful.
- Try to void watching TV or using your computer in the evening an hour or so before going to bed. Once sun has set, avoid light as much as possible, to promote natural melatonin secretion, which helps you feel sleepy. Devices such as smartphones, TVs, and computers emit blue light. Which tricks your brain into thinking it’s still daytime. Normally, your brain starts secreting melatonin between 9 and 10 pm, and these devices emit light that may stifle that process and keep you from falling asleep.
- Be mindful of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in your bedroom. EMFs can disrupt your pineal gland and its melatonin production. Plus may have other negative biological effects as well
- Sleep in darkness. – Even a small amount of light in your bedroom can disrupt your body’s internal clock and your pineal gland’s melatonin production. Even the glow from your clock radio could be interfering with your sleep, I personally would eliminate your clock radio. Use black out curtains if you can or an alternative is to use a sleep mask.
- Keep the temperature in your bedroom below 21° centigrade Many people keep their bedrooms too warm for a good night’s sleep
Plus of course I would encourage every-one to use our magnesium sprays as we need magnesium to help protect us from EMF’s plus to help our bodies relax – plus we need it for many hormonal reactions, I know if I use my magnesium before bed I get a great night’s sleep and many clients report the same. Our Calm oil is designed to help with sleep and
other nervous system imbalances.
