The elderly people are prone to insomnia, and there are 9 prescriptions for killing insomnia！
Sleep is a very important and indispensable physiological phenomenon in human journey. The elderly must maintain good sleep in order to delay aging and keep their bodies healthy. So what can the elderly do to sleep? Next, I will introduce a few good ways to sleep, for your reference.
1. Pay attention to sleep time and quality
Old people should sleep longer than normal adults. The elderly aged 60 to 70 should sleep about 8 hours a day on average. Old people aged 70 to 90 should sleep about 9 hours a day; old people over 90 should sleep 10 to 12 hours a day. Women sleep longer than men. In addition to sleep time, normal sleep also needs to ensure sleep quality.
2. Use proper sleeping posture
The posture of sleep should be scientific. It has been confirmed by research that sleep is better on the right side, legs are slightly curved, the spine is slightly bent forward, the elbow is bent in front of the pillow, and the left hand is naturally placed on the thigh, so that the whole body muscles Get maximum relaxation. However, the sleeping posture is not fixed throughout the night, so certain postures should not be overemphasized, and should be based on natural, comfortable and relaxed sleep.
3. Improve sleep environment
Sleep should choose a quiet and refreshing, dark, well-ventilated environment, avoid noisy and noisy, brightly lit. And should develop a fixed sleep rhythm, sleep regularly, get up on time.
4. Appropriate exercise
Proper exercise can also promote a calming and comfortable substance, endorphin, in the brain. Exercise can accelerate insomniacs to fall asleep and increase the time of deep sleep. It should be noted here that exercise should not be too tired. For retired seniors, brisk walking 30 minutes to 60 minutes every afternoon, plus bathing or washing feet before going to bed can also help fall asleep.
5. Musical hypnosis
A soft, soothing music before going to bed has a certain effect on falling asleep as soon as possible. Hearing light music is like a child sitting on a cold summer night listening to a beautiful mythology story by an old grandmother, or like lying on the beach in warm sunlight, soothing and sleeping peacefully.
6. Choose comfortable sleep supplies
When choosing sleep products, it should be noted that the bed should not be too narrow, the mattress should not be too hard or too soft; the pillow height should be moderate; the bedding should be soft and breathable.
7. Eliminate psychological concerns
Many elderly widows, because of their concerns about their children and concerns about their physical health, cast a shadow on their mental health, making it difficult for their physical and mental state to relax, causing serious insomnia. Therefore, it is necessary to help elderly patients to eliminate psychological concerns in a timely manner, to ensure psychological health and freedom, so that they can be physically and mentally stretched, and relieve the symptoms of severe insomnia.
8. Eat some foods that help sleep
(1), millet porridge
Millet is slightly cold and has the effects of strengthening the spleen, stomach and sleeping. The content of tryptophan in millet is the highest among all cereals. It can promote the secretion of insulin after eating and increase the amount of tryptophan entering the brain, which can play a good role in helping sleep.
(2), hot milk
The sleeping effect is comparable to sleeping pills. Milk’s protein contains essential tryptophan, which can cause brain nerve cells to secrete a serotonin (serotonin) that makes people feel sleepy, so that the brain’s thinking activities are temporarily suppressed, causing drowsiness (1 hour before bedtime) drink).
9. Use some product to help sleep – Photobiomodulation Therapy Helmet GY-PDT1
This product work with 810nm wavelength Near Infrared, it has the ability to extend through the skull to the brain, promoting recovery from traumatic brain injury and reducing long-term nerve damage, and can help patients with severe depression and anxiety. If elder can not fall asleep becuase of that, it would absolutely help them.
Besides, in the updated version, the frequency therapy was aceptable with the GY-PDT1.
In order to find a solution to sleep disorders, EEGSmart has done a lot of research and exploration in the field of sleep. We have a set of electroencephalogram devices that detect people’s brain waves during sleep, and analyze the data of people in different sleep stages through algorithm analysis. From Data feedback found that the problem caused sleep disorders, and then through the audio frequency of the same frequency as the brain waves to stimulate people to sleep. Here we understand the basic principles of improving sleep by stimulating changes in brain waves.
Human brain electrical pattern
Electroencephalography (EEG) technology is used to measure the EEG fluctuations on the surface of the skull. The EEG patterns that have been determined are mainly contained in frequencies below 30 Hertz (Hz). They are divided into the following 4 categories:
Β mode: frequency 15-30 Hz, the brain is highly awake and active;
Α mode: frequency 8-14 Hz, the brain is relaxed but still retains consciousness;
Θ mode: frequency 4-7 Hz, the brain is in a subconscious state like sleeping but not sleeping;
Δ mode: frequency 0.5-3 Hz, the brain is in a deep sleep state.
When external stimuli act on the brain, it is possible to change the brain wave frequency from one mode (stage) to another mode (stage). This process is called brain loading (Entrain). For example, when the brain is in the beta phase (highly awake), if the brain is stimulated with a 10Hz sound wave for a period of time, the frequency of the EEG will change to the frequency of the loaded sound wave, and the person will become relaxed. Using this principle, we can artificially adjust the activity state of the brain to make it change to the pattern we want. Of course, the loading process should be gradual, and the frequency span should not be too large.
So we can adjust the frequency with using the therapy helmet to help the user improve their sleeping quality and time.
