Research has demonstrated that whole body cryotherapy treats several types of sleep disorders. If you suffer from insomnia, cryotherapy may help you experience an improvement in your general sleep pattern.
Symptoms Caused by Insomnia
Perhaps you slept like a baby for years. However, you have recently discovered that it is difficult to fall asleep.
Maybe you have suffered from insomnia for your entire adult life. Whether you suffer from temporary or chronic insomnia, you may find that you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
- You are having trouble falling asleep.
- You find it difficult to sleep for more than a few hours.
- Your lack of sleep causes you to feel irritable.
- You are unable to concentrate on small daily tasks.
- You feel fearful about the act of sleeping.
- You wake up early in the morning unable to fall back asleep.
- You find yourself staring at the ceiling instead of sleeping.
- Your work suffers from lack of sleep.
Researchers believe that you are more likely to experience various types of physical and mental conditions if you do not get enough sleep.
Your insomnia may cause one or more of the following health conditions:
- You are gaining too much weight.
- You have been diagnosed with diabetes.
- Your blood pressure is too high.
- You may end up suffering from a chronic heart condition.
- You feel anxious most of the time.
- You suffer from depression.
- Your immune system is compromised.
- You medicate yourself with an excessive amount of alcohol.
- You resort to using illegal drugs that enable you to cope.
Your daily activities may determine the quality of your sleep.
If you want to experience better sleep, pay attention to the following steps:
- Do not drink coffee or other caffeinated beverages after 3:00 p.m.
- Relax in your bedroom.
- Drink milk and eat cookies before going to bed.
- Read a book before you turn out the light.
- Develop a sleep routine.
- Do not eat dinner late at night.
- Do not eat heavy meals at night.
- Turn off the television one hour before going to bed.
- Do not stay up late at night using your computer or cell phone.
If you are unable to fall asleep after 20 minutes, get out of bed and perform a mild activity. Read a book of poetry, write a poem or fold the laundry.
After you fulfill a gentle activity for 20 minutes, go back to bed and see if you can fall asleep. Try drinking a warm beverage or soaking in a tub filled with warm water before you go to bed.
Experience an Increase of Natural Endorphins
Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) releases endorphins into your bloodstream. Natural endorphins help you relax. Cryotherapy exposes your body to freezing temperatures. Do not worry. Your body will only feel cold for a few minutes. Your immune system also gets a positive boost and anxiety diminishes.
It is difficult to function without a good night’s sleep. If you have tried other methods without success, make an appointment for a cryotherapy session. In addition to helping your insomnia, you will feel more energy during the day.
