Put on some bed socks and drift off to sleep...

23 Oct 2012 08:57:54

Do you have trouble falling asleep? We’ve got a simple tip to help you nod off more swiftly at night.

According to Swiss researchers, you’re more likely to fall asleep quickly if your hands and feet are warmer than the temperature of your bedroom.

Dr Kurt Krauchi and his team at the Sleep Laboratory in Basel monitored the body temperature and functions of a group of young, healthy men as they nodded off. In every case, they fell asleep immediately after a shift in blood flow to hands and feet.

The study, published in the journal Nature, seems to indicate that as we approach the threshold of sleep, the body's temperature regulation system moves heat from its core to our extremities i.e. our hands and feet.

The phenomenon is closely related to the release of hormones such as melatonin, which regulate sleepiness and wakefulness.

Poor circulation can mean wakeful nights

The researchers say that bed socks or a hot water bottle at the feet may not directly cause sleep, but it can trigger widening of the blood vessels, which in turn switches the body's sleep mechanism on.

If your extremities are cold, it inhibits the free flow of blood and your sleep hormones fail to kick in which can cause insomnia.

The scientists speculate that some sleep disorders associated with old age and illness may be caused by poor circulation and an inability to widen blood vessels in the hands and feet.

Why Blood Flow to the Legs is Important

Blood flow to the legs is very important to our bodies' circulation. This is a function that needs to be paid attention to. Without proper circulation, we risk having aches and pains in our feet and ankles. Because of this, we may have feet that are sore or swollen, which results in limited mobility.

Fortunately, there are things we can do to improve our circulation and repair blood flow to our legs. Activities such as exercising, walking more frequently, or taking the stairs at work all help in improving blood flow in our bodies. One product called Revitive IX will help also improve blood flow to the legs. Studies have shown that this product minimized swollen feet and ankles, relieved discomfort and pain due to cold feet, raised oxygenated blood in the lower legs to help muscles recover more quickly after a bout of inactivity. It works by stimulating muscles in the soles of the feet. By using it twenty minutes a day, you will be on your way to better circulation in no time.

Having good blood flow helps us remain active and vital. Our legs work hard to pump blood throughout our bodies, even working against gravity. So, why not be good to your body and help your circulation today.

The Benefits of a Circulation Booster

16 Oct 2012 11:20:11

Poor circulation in the lower legs and feet can lead to swelling, discoloration and pain. Fortunately, a circulation booster can help maintain the health of the lower legs and feet.

Poor circulation in the lower legs and feet can lead to swelling, discoloration and pain. Some individuals may find that the swelling and pain associated with poor circulation can lead to limited mobility. Fortunately, a circulation booster can help maintain the health of the lower legs and feet.

Circulation boosters work by creating an electrical impulse that stimulates blood flow. This impulse is first felt by the soles of the feet as they are placed on the circulation booster, but nerves throughout the lower leg are stimulated in the process.

Even active people can benefit from the use of a circulation booster. Sitting for only a short period of time can quickly result in swelling in the lower legs and feet, but a circulation booster results in an increase in blood flow.

A circulation booster can help regulate blood flow in patients suffering from the ill effects of, obesity and other conditions that result in poor circulation.

Individuals who prefer natural methods of staying healthy will appreciate that there are no drugs needed to increase circulation through a circulation booster. No drugs means no need to worry about interactions or negative side effects.

Keep your back fit and healthy

10 Oct 2012 09:45:06

As part of Back Care Awareness Week (8-12 October), we've been finding out how we can reduce the risk of developing back pain.

Looking after your back

Back pain is very common and in many cases, it’s difficult to prevent completely. However, there are a number of things you can do to reduce the risk of developing disabling back pain.

Keep active
To keep your back fit and healthy, it’s important to stay active. Walking, cycling, swimming or even gardening 2 to 4 times a week for 20 minutes at a time will give you the most benefit. Classes such as Yoga, Pilates or Tai chi are also useful for keeping your back flexible.

Looking after your posture
Your spine is an ‘S’ shape and it’s important to keep this natural curve of your back when sitting. Good chairs follow this natural curve of the back but since all backs are different, they should also be adjustable to ensure you can set them up for your needs.

Lifting heavy items
Lifting heavy or awkwardly shaped items can be a risk factor for back pain, especially when you have to lift repetitively. When lifting, it’s important to bend your knees and keep the weight as close to your body as possible. If the item is very heavy, ask for help, or use tools such as lifts to make the work easier.

Healthy eating and drinking
A healthy diet and drinking sufficient water is important for everyone’s general health. It’s also been suggested that drinking sufficient water is important as it keeps the intervertebral discs hydrated.
