Two of the most common questions we get are “What’s so wrong about the way we sleep now?” and “Why should we even care about EMF radiation?”
The human body is undoubtedly a magnificent machine. It has regulatory systems that control themselves - for example breathing centers controlling breathing frequency and depth etc.
These important systems contribute to the human body’s balance and are called autoregulation systems. Each one of our physiological systems, from the respiratory system, through the gastrointestinal, renal system and of course - the nervous system, all have complicated regulatory systems to guard them, some being co-regulations and some are self-related (autoregulation).
Let’s go though some examples:
- Our lungs work together with our blood system to enable better diffusion of O2 or CO2 throughout our bodies. When there’s a lack of oxygen, or an excess of CO2, blood vessels around the alveolar part of the lungs in order to create a better gas exchange.
- Our kidneys, which are in charge of filtering our blood and regulating its electrolytes, have an autoregulatory hormone that allows them to control their own blood flow, to maximize efficiency.
- Our heart also regulates its own contraction and relaxation according to the body’s blood volume level and other tissue’s demand for blood supply.
In fact, it’s fair to say that our body doesn’t really need our help. To be more accurate, it mostly needs us not to interfere. The answer to the mentioned questions about the influence of EMF on sleep is exactly this - if we’re interfering with our sleep - there’s room for improvement.
The same applies with our sleep.
Our central nervous system functions in a certain range of conditions: temperature, frequencies, chemical concentrations of electrolytes etc., and while some external factors affect them, it’s our job to protect them. The perfect example would probably be the use of air conditioning while sleeping. Whether it’s super hot outside, or freezing cold, our trivial choice would be to turn on the air conditioner before going to sleep to make sure we’ll be able to sleep well.
When we talk about EMF radiation, the main difference is the disturbance visibility. We can’t see the radiation affecting our sleep, we can’t measure the improvement in the very first moment of using a radiation blocking device, yet the influence it has on our sleep is significant.
Reducing EMF radiation exposure before and during sleep allows our alpha brain waves to be managed as they are always being managed - by the body’s own regulation. Just like we want to provide our body with the right temperature, humidity, air circulation, food and water, we also must prevent interference with brain-waves as much as possible.
Neutralizing outside interruptions allows our body to balance and regulate its own systems as it is meant to, and provides our body with the opportunity to renew, regenerate, refresh and heal through a good night’s sleep.
Wishing you a good night’s sleep
