SLEEP: The Best Remedy Ever

.

There is nothing better then good sleep to get rest, regenerate the body and soul and get healed.

A lot of health problems occur just because people today do not have healthy quality and quantity of sleep,

  • due to the modern style of life,
  • due to accepting too much responsibilities that cause stress 
  • our prejudices about sleep (we like to set up false standards about sleep, like how many hours is "normal", what is "too much" of sleep, what is "too little", when is "normal" to be awake, when is "normal" to be asleep etc).
  • due to the constant noise to which are majority of people exposed in crowded cities,
  • due to the alarm clocks that wake people up usually when they are in the deepest and highest quality of well deserved sleep and rest.
  • due to the intake of various medications, alcohol, drugs
  • due to the wrong belief that sleeping is wasting of time

.

Exact amount of sleep somebody needs is very individual parameter for every person. There are periods when body and neural system requires very many sleep. People usually confuse that need with depression but most often this is not so: the most valuable point of sleep is deep regeneration of brain cells, that can occur ONLY in deep sleep and if person sleeps as much is needed.

.

Sleeping, Self-healing and Law of Attraction

.

From my early childhood I discovered that many problems that I created by some actions can easily disappear and get solved after good sleep. Why is that? We create our material reality even during the sleep, while brain is processing emotions and memories and establish new brain patterns. With new, healthy brain patterns, created during the healthy sleep, and healthy emotions are result of that, we easily attract healthy situations in our life. Brain has tremendous power of self-healing and healing of our life.

.

Many people believe that sleeping long is wasting the time - they cannot be more wrong: without enough sleep the life easily looses its quality.

.

.

.

Cats can give us the best example how sleeping is important. They are well known for their ability for fast self-healing. Their love for sleep has a lot to do with it.

.

.

They can fall asleep literally everywhere - in any time of day or night. When they need rest and little nap- they just take it.

.

.

Sleep Cycle

Sleep Cycle and importance of deep sleep and REM sleep

Healthy sleep is going on in cycles. After starting to feel sleepy, brain gradually slows down the activity and starts to produce slower brain waves (Alpha, Theta and finally Delta) then in awake state (when majority of brain waves are quick Bheta). At the same time, muscle activity slows down (with occasional muscle twitching) as well as heart starts to beat slower and breathing becomes slower. After stage of light sleep, /when we are easy to awake), we are gradually entering in the stage of deep sleep.

.

Deep Sleep - During the deep sleep brain is taking rest producing very slow waves, needed to restore the energy we expend during our waking hours. It is interesting to know that blood flow decreases to the brain in this stage, and it redirects itself towards the muscles,

  • restoring physical energy,
  • regenerating the cells, tissues and organs of the body.
  • This stage is extremely important for immunity to improve.
  • This stage is regulating hormones in the body
  • this stage is stage of deep self-healing

.

REM sleep - Dream Sleep – during that stage, eyes move rapidly (REM = Rapid Eye Movement). It is also called paradoxical sleep because brain activity is very alike to awakened state only body is paralyzed, although muscles can occasionally twitch. Breathing and heartbeat are rapid. In this stage brain is

  • processing emotions,
  • retaining memories,
  • relieving stress and
  • healing psychological traumas.
  • REM sleep is extremely important for process of learning and developing new skills.

Most of dreaming occurs during the REM sleep.

We usually need to have three to five REM episodes per night.

.

Deep sleep and REM sleep are extremely important stages of sleep - brain cannot work properly without any of them, neither if the sleep cycle is constantly disrupted. Without sleeping as much as body needs - all our mental and physical functions gradually deteriorate, we cannot process traumatic experiences, brain becomes full of various info that is not properly processed and we also cannot learn new things and skills.

Today people suffer from heavy sleep deprivation, majority of people do not sleep enough or their sleep is of poor quality - no wonder why humanity is so tensed, not focused, full of fears, ill and confused . So many mental and physical problems would never appear if people would sleep as much as they need. Longetivity would also improve. Without enough sleep we literally burn ourselves too fast.

.

Medications create new sleeping disorders

.

Many people try to heal their sleeping disorders by taking sleeping pills, what is certainly the worst possible option in majority of cases. Despite the fact that is so easy to ged addicted to them, they disturb normal sleeping patterns and negatively influence brain waves .

As I mentioned in previous chapter, sleeping goes in cycles that sleeping pills disrupt and most often completely surpress REM phase that is nessessary for brain. As a result, brain does not get the chance to fully process all informations, daily happenings and emotions and cannot fully regenerate. Effects of using sleeping pills are similar to that ones of sleep deprivation, maybe even worse - brain that cannot process memory causes that traumatic experiences and negative emotions never get healed ...what does not allow regeneration of brain cells as well.

Nothing strange that people who are constantly on sleeping medications usually do not heal their chonic diseases - their brains and whole bodies are constantly exposed to trauma caused by lack of normal and natural REM phase and lack of normal exchange of sleeping cycles.

.

Herbal remedies for good night sleep

.

For healing minor sleeping disorders there are two herbs that can be always of great help for this purpuse:

Valerian Root (tincture is the best)

Passion Flower

They do not work the same as sleeping pills, they gently and tenderly restore natural sleeping powers and help nerves to start with healing.

Healing Heavy Sleep Disorders Naturally

We start to feel sleepy when our brain starts to secrete more hormone melatonin. It is secreted by pineal gland in the brain and it is very important for regulation of all other hormones.

For healthy production of melatonin, it is good to know that darkness stimulates it while light surpresses secretion of melatonin. If we would live without artificial lights, we would naturaly start to feel sleepy immediately after the sunset. And we would sleep much more during the wintertime, what would allow us to completely rest and regenerate.

Many heavy sleep disorders are caused by low melatonin secretion and could be temporarly solved by using melatonin supplements, what is certainly much more healthier then to depend on sleeping pills.

Of course, final goal of healing is to gradually establish normal sleeping patterns - naturally..

Many researchers also believe that low melatonin levels are related to the aging process. Due to the many responsibility people have during the life, they start to produce much less melatonin in adult and older age then in childhood. In addition to its hormonal actions, melatonin has strong antioxidant effects. Melatonin is also strengthening the immune system.

I believe I convince you in nessessity of quality sleep - sleep whenever you feel like it - just choose to be in dark room (whenever is that possible). After enough of sleep your quality of life will become much higher !

At the end, I wish you all many good nights of sleep....with many sweat dreams.

Tatjana: As usual, I enjoy reading your hubs, they are always informative and accurate! I mentioned to Phil a couple of days ago, that I am sleeping very well and have for the past few months, something I couldn't do for decades. No wonder I was not at my best emotionally. I attribute my ability to sleep better to the homeopathy remedies you sent me, so once again, thank you! I was going to email you, but since you wrote this hub, I take the opportunity to let you know here. :)You should see me now... if I am watching TV and its dark, and I close my eyes for a few seconds right away I get sleepy, even in the car, if I relax I get sleepy and its not a lack of energy, its a change my body has taken.

BTW, good to know that if I sleep more my body will heal its issues.

You did a really great job on this hub. Sleeping has always been a struggle for me and I have been trying to really work on this. I usually find myself climbing into bed around 3 or 4 A.M. and am up by 10 or 11. Not good, I know.

I can vouch for Melatonin and Valerian Root, as I have had success with both of these supplements. I have also used a lavender eye pillow. There is nothing quite like herbal remedies.

I have been trying to focus on changing my sleeping habits for sometime now and have been somewhat successful for short periods of time.

I wish that I could be like the cat's in your pics. Funny thing, my cats are like me. They come to life in the wee hours of the night and have a ball.

Dear Mary, I am so glad that you are so much better: your positive intentions have a lot to do with it as well. You just proved the theory that when people want to get healed -they get healed with a little bit of help.

Sleep is the most important part of human life - all nightmares of life can be healed easily through the sleep (it is even more important then meditation).

Love and many hugs

Dear Sage -

it is not so important WHEN you go to bed, it is more important that you sleep well (in darkness in the room and silence). Some people are more active during the afternoons and nights, some other are types who adore mornings. Everyone is different.

Cats are night animals - so basicaly they are more active during the night.

Hi Tatjana - This is a great hub, I had forgotten that passionflower could be used to get a good night's sleep. In the past I used to drink either passionflower or chamomile tea in the winter time it just seems to make one sleep better. Thanks for sharing. :)


Winsome profile image

Winsome 6 years ago from Southern California by way of Texas

Hey Tatjana, thanks for the great information. I think you are right about the dark--they have proven that light can be used to cure jet lag. If I want to cure an inconvenient sleep pattern, even if I get to sleep late, I just force myself to wake up (and get up)for a few days in a row at the same time with lots of light and that helps me feel sleepy at the right time for the new, more convenient sleep pattern.

Nice to see all my friends here...Tatjana you/we have such great friends don't we. =:)

izettl profile image

izettl 6 years ago from The Great Northwest

Good hub, but maybe too simple a message. what I really want to know is what if you can't get enough sleep- is there anything to counteract the effects? I always knew I needed at least 9 hours of sleep, but I began suffering from sleep deprivation when I had a baby (you forgot to mention "due to having a baby"). For almost a year I got 2-4 hours of sleep, mostly interrupted too and it's not like I had choice, I was getting up to feed a baby. Many of us know we don't get enough sleep so now what?

"let me sleep on it." Seriously, your attention to the depth and breadth of "sleep" is outstanding. Have you an idea why we need to sleep? I have read many theories... I do know and understand hypnosis is not like the command, SLEEP ! and the patient/subject immediately appears to be asleep... Hypnosis, that is another subject I cannot wrap my brain around. I do, I use hypnosis, but REALLY what is happening in terms of the brain action/function in its apparent altered state interest me...

Hi Izzetl, glad to see you here.

Now you just need to catch up sleep that you missed...so try to sleep as long as possible and take a nap whenever you feel like and your brain will gradually regenerate.

I also could not normally sleep for many years (f.E. because of work etc.), so in periods after that I had to sleep much more then is "normal" to catch up what I missed.

Dear Dallas - wee need to sleep just because this is only way how our nerves, brain and the rest of body cells can regenerate and rejuvenate.

When we sleep we also create our material reality - on higher level then we are awake - in case the sleep is of good quality.

I've seen some articles talks about thing to do before sleeping. The first don't is avoid reading or using computer at least 1 hour before sleeping. it will trigger our brain to release cancerous hormone due to our brain assume it is still daylight and our brain suppose to be working instead of sleeping.

Sleep whenever you can Thayak - it is more important that you do it anytime then in exact time.

Nice hub Tat! I agree with you that a good sleep can have wonderful effects for our body. Like during afternoons or after lunch, a good relaxing nap for 30 minutes is quite relaxing.

I suffer from insomnia a lot. My doctor prescribed Trazodone, a common sleep aid. It took me years to get off the stuff. Personally, when I get too tired it is hard to fall asleep. My remedy has been to take an afternoon nap and keep a regular evening sleep schedule.

Your hub is informative and a valuable resource for many people I am sure.

Thank you for sharing your experience Keith - whoever has active brain and/or is too tired, cannot fell asleep easily.

Many thanks for the visit and comment and I wish you a lot of good sleep in your life.

Very interesting hub here. It was enlightening to see you wrote of the connection of being depressed with not getting enough sleep. Could be that getting enough sleep can be what some people may need and not anti-depressants at all. But they may help them get on the right track. Well done. Voted and rated. And will share.
